Big Bang Theory

Have you ever experienced one of those days that nothing seems right?

Yesterday, on Saturday the 17th of October, I started my day with my usual basketball session with my brother. I lost the game, which wasn't really a big disappointment to me, but after coming home, I decided not to have my breakfast coz I had to rush for my nephew's aqiqah at Bangi. There I was feeling a bit hungry and not stable, I slammed the door at my back before leaving the house, realising my fourth finger got stuck at the door.

My sweet little finger, was screaming in pain. *or was i imagining things?*

Trying not to swear much, I rushed to my car and drove off to pick up my partner for the aqiqah. Right before reaching his place, I gave a call to reconfirm his location. After putting down the phone, I started to drive again and heard a LOUD screeching sound coming from the left side of my car. Yes, I had just scratched my precious precious car at the evil devider which I didn't see well enough. *cries*

Feeling hungry, angry, down and eveything you could think of, off we went to Bangi once my partner jumped into the car. Luckily he drove and I sat grumpily next to him, secretly feeling glad he brought along some energy bar for me. While munching away, we started to talk and talk. I was cool again and feeling glad to have someone who was cool enough to accept my unstable state at that moment.

Alhamdulillah the aqiqah went well. Met some family and good food was served, so I was okay again. We left my brother-in-law's house and went to the surau nearby for Zohor prayer. Oh so when I thought everything was going well, something just had to happen.

Guess what? After i changed my outfit to something more comfortable to be worn the whole day, I went to the mirror to adjust my scarf only realising some guys entered the toilet. I was thinking at that particular time: "err... why are they here? There must be some problem with their toilet that they have to come in here". Gosh, how wrong could I be? Just a few seconds later it struck me that it was ME who got the signs wrong!!

So apparently all these guys had been waiting for me the whole time when i was changing my outfit. Oh the humiliation!! Thank God I am the type who can keep a straight face, so there I was walking out slowly towards the right toilet..... ughhhh...

Anyway, after that eventful morning/afternoon, I tried to put everything behind and just enjoy the day. Despite me having a slight headache that we had to find some actifast, my partner and I had the best day ever pretending to be tourists. We took the bus, the train, walked at touristy areas, took videos and pictures, and ended our day at one of the most glamorous events of the year: Citrawarna2015.

I couldn't have asked for more. That was my first time spending more than 5 hours at Dataran Merdeka. The crowd was huge, the performance was stunning, and the experience was once in a life time. We got there as early as 5.30pm and we got the chance to eat at the food truck festival, sing with the performers at the chillax corner on the huge bean bags, watch Mud the Musical for free (although we had watched it previously at the Dewan Bandaraya), receive some goodie bags for free, and watch the awesome performances on the big stage introducing Malaysian culture.

Around 10.15pm I was getting a bit tired and we decided to leave the crowd. Right before calling the uber to get back to where we parked our car, we decided to take a look again at the food from the food trucks, only realising the fireworks were starting to shoot right on top of our heads! It was beautiful and I was stunt. I was mainly speechless because we were at the right spot at the right time with not many people around us. That was my first time being at the right spot for fireworks.

I remember when I was a student either at Japan or London, each time I had to go for Hanabi or Bonfire events, I had to struggle to find a good place in order to enjoy the beauty of the fireworks. But yesterday, we were simply lucky to be at that spot where the crowd was behind us and no cars were on that road since it was closed for the event, hence making me feel sooo comfortable and free to enjoy the beauty of the colourful fireworks without being blocked by anything or anyone. The fireworks were shooting right on top of our heads!!

Seriously, though my day started quite bad i must say, it turned out to be one of the most memorable days of my life. Well, no doubt having a good company is also important in creating such memory. :p

Thanks to you, my #1 listener, no matter how my day started, it somehow ended with a bang! A BIG, HUGE BANG! :*



  1. You make it right

    So that morning despite binge watching Game of Thrones the whole night. I managed to woke up on time.
    Finding uber these days were a hassle and managed to get one to bring me to the laundry shop.
    so there I went with my kindle and small supply of energy bars and drinking water. The self service
    laundry was full of people but managed to secure an empty slot. finshed my washing in 20 minutes and
    just after the dryer starts. My partner texted me telling me she's on her way. Usually i'd go for a coffee
    or teh tarik when the dryer runs. But not this time since im afraind I'd take too much time to finish
    and cant be late to attend the aqiqahs.

    So, the dryer is done and just after i folded my last shirt into the IKEA blue bag, she calls and asked me for my exact location. She seems stressed from the incident she told in the the post above. Well. I did have a look at it. the dent is quite deep. Syukurlah the skirt(not sure what they call it) is still attached and is not hanging low. We then drove to BBB.
    We did missed an exit adding up few KM's to our journey.

    The Aqiqah went well. Food is good. company is good. get to know few new peoples around.
    though during zohor prayer. My partner did entered the wrong toilets as she mentioned above.
    leaving the gentlemans waiting outside. It surprises me when I entered the toilet and
    this lady I've been waiting the whole time was AfiqAH! "eh you ke yang kat dalam dari tadi ??" ^_^

    We then proceed to My old workplace to park and walk towards klcc to take the green line before changing purple line . We missed the interchange at Starhill Gallery so ... fast forward ... Arrived at Dataran MErdeka after asar ... just nice ... too bad there were only few food trucks at that time .. My partner explains well in the post above . The fireworks was so spectacular. I almost thought I'll need to wait for 2017 new year eve to watch fireworks together. Syukurlah. The timing was perfect. :)

    Thanks to you too Afiqah ... :)

    1. Hey there partner ;)

      Thanks so much for sharing your side of story. At least i can say that i was not just 'syok sendiri' last Saturday :p

      It was perfect as we decided to become tourists on the day of Citrawarna 2015. Didn't expect the day would end such way. I am glad I could witness the beauty of the sky with someone close. 2017 sure is a long time to go. :p

      Yes, indeed.. It was such a pleasure to have spent the wonderful day with you, Rasyid ;)
