Turn off the light, drivers!

It was a long day today. Went breakfast in the morning with my girlfriends from high school at McDonald's and had my favourite Sausage McMuffin. Splendid! However, the coffee was so strong that I felt so energetic today (but honestly I'm tired now already - it's 1.26 am, by the way). The day started off well, Alhamdulillah, although I woke up a bit late than the time we promised to meet up. Sorry girls. Blame blogspot for keeping me up late last night. Hehe. Luckily I don't have any breakfast date tomorrow morning so I can keep on writing this post till the very end.

In the afternoon, I went out to PKNS Shah Alam with Yong to buy some shawls.. Yeah I was pretty bored with my current collection so I needed new stuffs to keep me going :P It started to rain heavily when we were on the way to Shah Alam. So, me - being a good driver (ehem!) who wanted to keep other drivers alert - switched on the light as it was a bit dark due to the rain. Then when we arrived there, being happy and excited I was (to go shopping), forgot to turn off the light. I completely forgot about it. After spending like 3 and a half hours in the mall, being confident (as always)... tried to start the engine. And tadaaa. Failed. Tried again... Failed again. Then I realized... The light was switched on. The car's battery was out. At that moment, amazingly my brain was functioning well and I straightly knew that being gelabah or mad brought nothing but adding more tense to the situation. So I went back inside the mall and asked the makcik at the information counter there where I could get some help.. or at least a jumper to start the engine. By the way, of course I didn't call her makcik, or else I was still stranded at PKNS parking lot right now. =_='

Alhamdulillah.. after waited around 30 minutes, one abang guard came to me bringing a jumper. But there was no car. Then suddenly an Indian uncle - in his 40s - offered to help. And another abang stopped his car at the next parking space to help too. Then another abang came and stopped too. Alhamdulillah. There were still lotsa good people in this world. I just hoped that Allah would bless them and give His love and mercy to them for being such kind people who were willing to help this still-under-Probationary-license girl. Oops. Hee. :D

After a tough day at PKNS.. Yong decided to go to Empire Gallery for dinner. It was my second time visiting Empire and we went to Serai restaurant.  It was marvellous! The food was terribly good! The highlight of the day would be the Nutella Ravioli. It was some sort of kulit tofu macam wantan balls tu, with hot Nutella choc (still melting inside!) as filling, to be eaten with Vanilla ice cream. Mouth-watering dessert. Seriously, a must try!

Another dessert that made me drool - Berry Pavlova. Not too sweet, just nice. :)

Serai Iced Tea that I ordered

Alhamdulillah.. I survived today. Alhamdulillah. To all drivers out there, check twice (or thrice if you must), that you have switched off the light, fully pulled up the handbrake and turn off the engine, for sure.

Yong, who survived the day with me.

And oh, did I mention I bought a white jubah at PKNS.. with minimal white embroidery and beads. When I looked at it again, it really looked like a baju nikah. Or tunang. Hmm. Don't care. I will wear it this raya. :P
