Bad Habits, If Not Resisted

I sure miss my Internet/Work, it’s been only 2 days.
Bad Habit, BMW Meter
On Friday, we made a rare visit to my brother’s in laws at Sabak Bernam to see Adriana before she goes back to Kelantan. Carried her in my arms, shook her a few times to wake her up. She opened her eyes, looked at me, and fall back to sleep. If I were a vampire, I’d bite her apple-shaped cheek off.

The road was rather calm, except filled with road hoggers.

The next day, we raced to Johor Baru to see grandma. She’s not eating, hence weak. It’d be helpful to have a doc in the house to re-admit her for glucose drips. I guess the burden is on my shoulder, since both my brothers are takenย ย  ๐Ÿ˜›

On the way back to KL, I took over the wheel (I did 70% of the driving). Lucky me, dad has a soft spot for luxury fast cars. Driving is more of a pleasure than a chore.

Abah: I didn’t know we can do this fast..
NH: What?
Abah: Look at the meter.

120 miles per hour.

From my rear view mirror, I saw Abah grinned. Two things, he was being sarcastic AND happy with his horse. Slowed down by 20 mph. So JB-KL, 2 hours flat, door to door.

Bad habits, if not resisted, soon becomes necessity.

ps: Solution, take the Kelisa on highway. Surely can’t beat 110kmh with full load.

pss: Celebrating my raya in KL

psss: I miss my younger bro. We usually take turn mocking road hoggers.

pssss: Express bus switches lane suka-hati-ly. F’ You!

psssss: Bad habits are necessities, like coffee.

  1. u sure are going fast. 120 mph and that would be approximately around 200 km/h. I even don’t dare to drive more that 120 km/h. hehehe ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Fuh.. mph or kmh ??? dam!. almost 200km/h … JB-KL 2 jam mmg =.=’ … lucky blog ni still ada update lagi hari ni.. hahahaha.. jgn mara..

    neway bro, selamat hari raya aidiladha..

    ps: thanks coz subscribe blog aku.. nanti aku setting balik ye feed tu.. hehehe..

  3. 120mph? sure feels great to drive something that can go that fast.
    reminds me my 3hrs JB-KL trip on my friend old honda.
    we slow down just before the dashboard is vibrating & shaking like mad!
    hahaha…

  4. laju gajah wei…ko bawak mana satu ni? confirm bukan jenny n kelisa mak ko…bukan merc ko jugak..that leaves accord (bukan gak), lexus or merc…haha..macam aku tau bapak ko ada kereta ape..

  5. Salam Aidil Adha.

    Hope your grandmother is doing better.

    It is easier to adapt to higher speed than it is to keep to the limit. I found that out when I had to drive on the 120km/hr highway as compared to the 80km/hr I am usually on.

    And yes, speed is addictive. I just don’t think it is easily tamed as it feels (especially when in a high-powered car). One race-driver once said: Safe driving is not having to have to use your skills to control your car.

    I’ll get off my high-horse now ๐Ÿ˜› (can’t help it! ๐Ÿ˜• )

  6. ๐Ÿ™‚ Kalau dah ajal, pergi jua.

    Selamat Hari Raye bro. Tunggu tahun depan, dah leh sembelih ko plak. Lemak sudah bergumpal dikeliling pinggang mu! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  7. 80kmh? Oh my. You know Hussain Bolt could run 40kmh? Double that and you have your average speed. (Imagine someone running side by side with you)

    Safe driving = car parked and listen to Leona Lewis or David Cook. However, I do believe in Skilled driving. You’ll get accustomed once you build up speed. For the moment, just stick to 120kmh, before it turns into a bad habit.

  8. assalamualaikum abang edwin ittewww,

    Kreugerยฎ

  10. Salam Aidil Adha.

    Hope your grandma will recover soon. My grandma is not doing well too tapi nak jugak masak nasi dagang, rendang, ketupat etc. ๐Ÿ™„

    JB-KL in two hours? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ I wouldn’t want to be in the car that you’re driving. Still, it’s way better than the 4 hours drive to JB when my parents are behind the wheels ๐Ÿ˜›

  11. Sarcastic n happy?both.but i think d former one is more obvious :p well,old habits,especially d bad ones r hard 2 kill.Anyway,selamat hari raya

  12. Wow.. that’s fast..

    I did a lot of driving also these few days.. last week. Ehem, according to Google Maps here.., the distance is 481km and time taken should be 7.5 hours. I ‘completed’ the journey after 5.5 hours.

    Fast enough? ๐Ÿ˜›

  13. Sorry to hear about your grandma NH… I hope she’ll get her IV drips soon or else her body will start wasting away. My dad’s best friend’s wife got cancer and she got ulceration all over her digestive tract. She couldn’t eat, and she didn’t got the drips in time so she was kinda in a dire condition for a week or so. I pray hard that your grandma will have a speedy recovery ๐Ÿ™‚

    You’re one lucky guy whose dad has a soft spot for fast cars! I guess you have a dad that millions of other guys would kill for. Better watch out โ— My dad doesn’t have a particular love for cars but he does have road rages off and on, pretty scary, but over the years as he ages, his temper got more under control *phew* I guess it’s part of my childhood experience with my dad that defines my character today. I hated fights and sweared never to use a horn unless absolutely necessary (like seeing beautiful girls kids running among on the street).

    This got me laughing: “Solution, take the Kelisa on highway. Surely canโ€™t beat 110kmh with full load.” I’ve seen SEVEN people (kids included) crammed into a Kancil. I wonder why they did it. And it was during the balik kampung period, so they have luggages crammed in as well. OOOOF!

  14. Eh.. wait.. I think the distance should be more than that.. about 100+km Sarikei-Sibu, 200+km Sibu-Bintulu, 200+km Bintulu-Miri…

    Nevermind lah… Drive fast.. asal selamat. Bawa slow kalau bodoh tak guna jugak.. ๐Ÿ˜›

  15. My cousin’s friend cramped 6 adults in a kancil. They crashed and split the car in two. 2 died on the spot, the rest ended with broken bone etc. So think wisely before you floor that pedal.

    Well, lucky in some ways. Cool cars, anyone can afford one these days. A Civic or Accord could sprint the highway. BUT will dad let you do above 130kmh?

    Teddy, I’ve been in and out of driving school (not normal ones), not just a typical rage driving ๐Ÿ˜‰

  16. Oh you baddie! I got the idea from the van driver that fetches my brother to and from school. He always sounds the horn when he sees chicks on the road! Haha!

  17. Whoops I guess I got the wrong message across ๐Ÿ˜› I don’t mean to say that you’re having a road rage or something… it just reminds me of my dad. Anyway, by reading your posts and etc I think you’re a cautious driver ๐Ÿ˜‰ so speeding shouldn’t be particularly dangerous unless you’re sleepy, haha!

    Sorry to hear about what happened to your cousin and his family/friends. It’s indeed tragic to lose someone close in an accident. Quite scary. So far only my uncle had a close shave with Mr Grim Reaper along Federal Highway when a thunderstorm sent a tree falling right in the motorcycle path. Aiks!

  18. bong,

    Nape sarawak susah sgt nak ada signboard ah? aku ke bintulu, nak cr airport pun boleh sesat sampai terlajak nak ke sibu. deym!

  19. Itulah ko tak call aku.. haha! Ada signboards, but quite confusing lah! Aku first time drive from Sarikei to Miri.. sampai Sibu, entah macam mana jalan ke Bintulu, sebab takde clear signboards.. call member la, apa lagi ๐Ÿ˜›

  20. agreed. trunk road without signboard even to important places like city center or airport. deym! ๐Ÿ˜ก

  21. Don’t wanna disturb u lah bong. Memang ada signboard tp not helped too much lah.

    hahahaha… Kau sendiri tak tahu jalan ke Bintulu, silap haribulan aku yang kena selamatkan kau Bong.

    ps: Sudah expert dgn Bintulu ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

  22. what the heck.. camne ko tahu bro??!!! huhuhu.. badan makin menaik,, tapi dah makin susut cam biasa balik… terima kasih kepada pil kurus.. kalo nak order, usya kat sidebar justkhai..

    ko berlemak tak bro?

  23. Well well well. 120 mph ey.

    “Speed never kills you, it’s suddenly being stationary that does.” โžก

    Oh, and Selamat Hari Raya Qurban!

    Pesanan penaja (yang agak clichรฉ): Biar lambat asal selamat. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰

  24. Oh I meant the Kelisa part. Since, well.. I drive a Kelisa. Yang paling laju I pernah bawak pun 140km/j. Hehe.
