Scarry – Horror – Terror – Disaster Story
I want to share something suspense and scary. It’s not a horror movie or a sadistic story.
Yesterday, we (me and my wife) went to Tabung Haji Kulai to deposit some cash. We have postponed the visit to Tabung Haji for about 1 month already. Well, it’s me. I’m too tight up with a lot of mixed commitment. Yesterday, I managed to squeezed in some time out of my Research Methodology ‘compulsory’ Course to make an effort to go to the bank. We want to deposit some money to our accounts. A small portion of it were our kids recent “duit raya”…
I’m not going to reveal the amount of cash deposited but I’ll just show you the money (check out the photo below). If you are wandering how much, why not make a wild guess how much was that? Anybody want to guess?
The course I was attending requires us to use laptop, so I brought mine along. I don’t want to leave my precious laptop in the car. Who knows somebody crazy want to steal my laptop!? So, it’s better be safe then sorry. I brought along my HP laptop bag together into the bank.
After all the cash was safely deposited, we went to have some lunch at a nearby KFC which is just a 7 second walk from Tabung Haji. As usual I had a hot and spicy snake snack plate and my wife had 2 piece of hot and spicy chicken as well + some cheesy wedges (no photos here) and we paid by cash! Soon after fully consuming our lunch and collecting the chicken bones in a plastic for the cats behind our house, we hit the road to return for the course (me) and work (my wife).
I drove the car and chat with my wife and Marsya (my daughter) on our way back. Suddenly, I realized that my silky black laptop bag was not in our sight in the car! I asked my wife where is the bag? She said, i was carrying the bag all this while. But, I was not carrying the bag and I don’t remember putting the bag into the car before driving. OMG….OMG…OMG….So where the hell is my bag? It was a total nightmare and I can’t imagine myself without my laptop which contains almost everything…i repeat…almost everything of …. I just cannot say it anymore….
We thinked very hard where the bag possibly have been left. I could not recall carrying the bag out of Tabung Haji, so I asked my wife to call Tabung Haji. She dialed 103, talked to the middle aged female telephone operator and asked for Tabung Haji Kulai number. Then she called and asked the bank officer about my bag. There was some silence before my wife revealed that the bank officer spotted my bag on the customer waiting chairs. The officer asked what type of bag was it and I answered it was a HP compaq black coloured bag.
I immedietly u-turned my car and headed straight away to Tabung Haji for the second time but now for a different objective. Marsya, in the other hand wanted to pee… ops…
So, as soon as we arrived at the bank, I parked the car. My wife went to the bank and I escorted Marsya to KFC and went to the toilet. Well, she’s just a small kid and she wanted to pee. What do you expect…
After doing her businees, we walked out of KFC and met my wife with the laptop bag. Wow… what a relief… Thank God…Alhamdulillah. Both my laptop and the bag are very important to me. My bag contain my pendrives (2) not including the 4 Gb I’m giving away for the November contest, several important documents for my pH.D, research, salary review form etc. And the laptop, you know… is the key to ultimate information gate way.
So, that was it. A scarry story that happened in one afternoon in the month of November 2008. Luckily it was a happy ending… :
Oh yea…slightly after completing the course, we fed the fish in UTM lake with Ikhwan and Marsya 🙂 .
