My driving skill and sense of direction

I’d say, my driving skill and sense of direction are just like shit… no, it’s SHITsssss! I’m just so clumsy when it comes to driving a car…Please put all the following into a picture, and judge me for yourself, whether they are like shit, or shitS or shitSs or … (please janjang arimetik the “S” yourself):-  

·        Before I really get to drive this often, I’ve actually forgotten which one is the accelerator and which one is the brake pedal  

·        My 2nd time driving a manual car after getting my license was actually 3 days before I started working (1st time was during my 5 hours refreshing-lessons with an instructor). I drove my dad’s old version punya Toyota Land Cruiser all the way from KUiTTHO to Seremban. My dad actually requested to let him drive from Seremban onwards.

My dad: It’s much more tiring to supervise you driving then I drive myself!

My mom: Hoo… finally, I can rest! I had my heart in my mouth when you drove just now…  

·        After bringing me to the sites for a few times, my supervisor’s expecting me to go to the sites alone. My response to him was: “Sorry, xx, but I still do not quite remember the routes to those sites…” Then, he showed me around the sites for the very last time and I actually drew myself a map already. But the next day, when I had to drive to the sites, I did not know what I was drawing  

·        The most adventurous experience along my training was the day when my supervisor asking me to drive the company’s manual pool car to the site alone, because his car’s too packed. That’s my 1st time driving a manual car without supervision. I really sweated profusely for having to take care of the gear, traffic around me and the direction all at one time! My supervisor then instructed me to stop my car by one of the sites and jumped into his Jimny, “Samantha, I really don’t trust your driving skill…  

·        Normally I’ll drive to work around 6.30 am. One day, I received a call from my mom while I was driving, about 2 km away from home. “Ying, why didn’t you on the lights of the car?!!!” She’s almost shouting at me that time, then only I realized that I forgot to on the lights even though I was driving in the dark

  ·        When 1 of my best friends currently studying in UK knew that I drove all the way to pay her mom and brother a visit, her response was: Glad that you can drive safely. Blessed KL!  

·        The road widening works at one of the project sites involve cutting down trees of another party and the company is giving us hard time by demanding for unreasonable high compensation. During an internal meeting, the senior engineer actually suggested this to the project manager, “Well, if they are still unhappy with what we offer, maybe we can ask Samantha to drive there and knock the trees down.” My face really blushed as red as peony, even though I know he’s just joking… (maybe I should jot this down inside the minute of meeting, my contribution to the project le… =p)  

But after becoming the driver to send Sue Cing, Chai Yee and Wei Chern to Port Klang, Sue Cing really did my heart good to thank me for being a safe driver and commented that I’M BETTER THAN I CLAIM wo! Hehe! I got my self-esteem back!

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
