I was very busily driving around Jalan Kuching in KL today with Suet Li in the car chatting away when suddenly... I heard a loud bang and the entire car shook.
I looked in my rear view mirror only to find a white Kancil had hit me hard in the back.
I slowed my car to a stop, instantly causing a traffic jam in the middle of Jalan Kuching.
It felt rather odd as I looked around at all the passing cars that seemed to be slowing down just to look at the accident that had just happened.
I bet a number of them were slowing down to memorize both the numbers of my car and the Kancil to buy lottery by the end of the day.
Anyway, Suet Li stayed in the car as I opened the door and slowly walked towards the back of my car.
The first thing I saw was the Kancil that hit me.
It was a little damaged.
I paused for a few seconds before I dared to look at the damage on the back of my car.
Then when I garnered up enough guts to do so, I looked back and saw it.
There wasn't much damage. Just a little bit of paint transfer from the Kancil to my poor car.
I was relieved.
Almost like my Guardian Angel came out in the last minute to protect my car from further harm.
I looked at the driver of the white Kancil and he looked at me in a worried face.
"Takpe la Boss... saya punya kereta kena sikit saja."
I saw a sign of relief on his face, initially thinking that I was going to ask him to pay me since he it was clearly his fault for hitting my back.
He shook my hand and said
"Terima Kasih Boss... Saya tak sengaja punya".
I nodded and said that I had to run off to work now.
I asked him if his car could still move and he said he was going to let it cool down for a while then try again.
I then rushed off to work.
Later that afternoon, I went to the Police Station to decide if I should make a police report or not.
At the car park there, I noticed some car wreckages.
Cars that have been in really serious accidents.
I mean look at this.
Or even this burned up Waja.
Suet Li was with me and she shivered at the sight of the wreckages.
If they were to make another "Berhati-hati Di Jalan Raya" Commercial.. they should do one with pictures like these.
I drove home... at 40km/h.
Many cars drove pass me and showed me the finger... but I smiled back at them.
