The slightly exciting trip home

I went home for the weekend and a day.

Left KL with my sister and her friend on Friday.
We left at around 8pm
and reached home at 2am.

It was one of the longest trips from KL to Butterworth
that I've ever had. 

It took so long
because the car broke down somewhere between Taiping South and North exit. 

Can you see that?

We can't see much either.

It was really dark
without street lamps,
coz the highway is not a street.

We heard a faint pop while on the road
and the temperature just went straight up.

We wanted to stop at the nearest R&R or any stop,
but the nearest one was 2km away I think.

The moment we stopped at the side of the road,
smoke came out from the bonnet like we're sending out smoke signals.

It was really dark,
we didn't know what to do,
so we turned on the hazard lights,
put out the triangle
and stood at the side of the road,
hoping nothing worse will happen.

Did you know that you can call 1800-88-0000
and people from PLUS will come and tow your truck
or check and see what the problem is?

Free of charge.

Took them quite long to get here
but they did eventually.
When they got here another car was on tow already.

They stopped on the other side of the road
and came over.

They checked
and found out that the pipe that sent water to the fan
was leaking.
So we got a free ride behind the tow truck.

How cool was that?!

They were quite friendly.
We chatted all the way till the nearest toll,
which was Bukit Merah,
and the car was parked there till the next day.

remember this number 1800-88-0000

You won't know when you'll need their help.

But they'll just tow you to the nearest toll or R&R.

You still need someone to come and pick you up.

In this case,
my dad was the hero. ^_________________^

Here's an unrelated picture.

that's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~

One of the worst first world problem feelings is having to pee badly but the nearest toilet is 20km away.
I experienced that on that day,
just very glad that the car broke down after the 20km. =)


  1. Wow, where did you guys get the number in the first place then? Sure is one hella exciting night :P

  2. My sister's friend's car broke down previously, she asked around and got the number. =)
