Highway Drama

Us, being towed to the nearest exit

Us, being towed to the nearest exit

I think I did mention I had to go to Penang for a cousin’s wedding again last weekend. Or did I not?

Oh-well. We did. But not according to the planned schedule. Just because Mr. Hubs decided to think out of the norm.

Let’s cut the story short.

Mr. Hubs actually filled in petrol, instead of diesel to the diesel-powered SUV!

He didn’t realize it until after about 5 minutes drive after the Tapah R&R (where he re-fueled) the engine just turned off, on its own. He pulled over and stopped to think, and wonder.

So I asked,

Did you fill in petrol?

He answered,

No. Diesel. *pause*

Sheeshh..! Petrol laa…

See? Wife’s instincts are always correct! 😛

So we called our usual mechanic. And tried to find out PLUS’ phone number. But the PLUS people discovered us before we called them anyway.

Was towed to the Tapah PLUS office which was only 1km away, luckily!

Called my bro-in-law to come pick us up (thanxabunch Bad!), and waited for the arranged tow truck to tow the car back to KL.

Reached KL at 3am. Where was Imtiyaz when all this took place, you ask?

He was asleep most of the time, thankfully! 🙂

Initially the Penang trip was cancelled. Until at around 11am the next day, Mr. Hubs decided to proceed with the journey. Minus my mom this time, coz she has already unpacked her bags!

Reached Penang at 5pm, managed to see the bride & groom, and had our late lunch.

So there. The drama.

And why did Mr. Hubs did that, after 2 years of having the car?

Numerous suggestions from numerous people :

Misteri Alam. Hanya Allah yang tau.

Your New Year resolution?

Berangan bawak XC90 ke?

Tau la petrol dah murah…

This is what happens when you start having a girlfriend!

The damage has been done.

Kurang la budget for the Bandung trip nanti… 😦

    😀 I wonder why did n.i. mention ‘misteri alam’. Now I get it.

    U know, it’s a good way to start the year. hillarious moment indeed. 😀 too many depressing news that even this is much welcomed.
