Fuiyoh! Has anyone been to Sg Buloh lately?? I don’t remember when I last went to that part of the world and today I had to go visit a long lost customer whom we had abandoned for errmm…like 2 years or more?? Anyway, they called regarding a problem to their machine, and I realised that it’s high time I visit them as I’ve not been there before. They were serviced by my sales executive who left our company.
My technician went straight from his house and I was supposed to meet up with him there. I went along LDP and without realising I turned into the direction of Kepong instead of Sg Buloh! Shiaks! It’s such a long way to the 1st U-turn available! On top of that there were like a million orange signs which I think it’s about the MRR2, and it’s like so confusing lor.
Then the route towards Sg Buloh is another horrors of horrors, the roads are partially closed here and there and it’s like dirt road on certain parts and there were orange and white blocks along the way! Do you realise that these orange and white road blocks are like a permanent features on the roads in Klang Valley??
Then my nightmare begins as the further I went, the more I don’t recognise that place! It’s like, errrr..since when these shops and flats appear ah? Hey, what happened to the flyover which I used to use to go to that authentic Thai Restaurant ah? Hey what happened to the turn off to the famous ‘Bak Kut Teh’? Warao..panic maximum ledi! Called Oscar’s Mom and she told me this, “Aiya that flyover long time no more ledi la…” Sei mo??
Then I just simply turned left at one junction without knowing where that leads to…and then I saw the ‘Bak Kut Teh’ place and thought I was in the right direction. Then I called my technician and told him that I passed the army camp (the landmark that was given to me) and then a Shell petrol station. He told me I’m on the right route and asked me to look out for a Caltex and Petronas station. I saw a Caltex but didn’t see a Petronas wor! I just went on and on…and somehow it doesn’t feel right and I called him again. I turned back and stopped at the Caltex I saw and realised there were a lot of Petronas tankers next to it, it was like some mini depot or something. So I called him to verify and he said he will come out to meet me. Then he called to say he’s at the Caltex but I don’t see him! That’s when I realised that we are talking about a different Caltex station altogether!! Oh no!!!!!!!!! Then we agreed to meet at the Shell station but again it was the wrong one! Double oh no!!!!
Then I knew for sure I’m at the wrong road! So I drove back to where I came from and then YES, I saw the Shell station and there he was, waiting! Oh gosh! It’s like so ngam ngam the pattern was like army camp, then Shell, then Caltex and finally Petronas! What a coincidence and confusing time for me! Major stress for the day!!!
