My Adventure of Being an Eejit II

With an audible groan, I reached out and switched off the annoying alarm clock. Groggily, I opened my eyes and saw that it was already 6.30 am .

Rising quietly as not to disturb the missus, I shakily made my way to the bathroom. I was still not fully awake and spent at least one minute staring at the shower head. After suffering the freezing waters, I towelled myself dry, and went to claim my working attire from the cupboard, where the missus had hung them after kindly ironing them the night before.

After performing the Subuh prayer, (express version as usual), I collected my laptop, various other office documents and started up the car. I let the car warm up a bit before making my way out. It was still dark, and the housing area was deathly quiet. I thought none of it as I continued to the Bukit Mahkota toll booth and on to the KL-Seremban highway.

10 minutes later, I noticed that the traffic was lesser than usual. Still, I thought none of it.
I became suspicious when I reached the Sg. Besi toll booth when I saw PLUS had only opened up 2 ticket booths. I thought that it was highly inefficient of them to do so due to the heavy load of traffic entering KL on weekdays. I had driven about 1km past the toll booth, when I definitely knew something was amiss. There was absolutely no bloody cars on the road that morning. Usually, this particular stretch would be choc-a-bloc full of other commuters. Immediately, I ejected my CD and switched on the radio. I managed to catch 'public holiday' at the end of the DJ's sentence.

Ah.. sudah.

I quickly called my mum up, and asked her the most stupidest question I have ever asked her......

Ma, hari ni Malaysia cuti ke?

She replied by laughing her head off.

How in the hell did I not know that it was Maulidur Rasul yesterday? Suffice to say in my defence that I had a 3 day seminar last week, and I was on Annual Leave on Monday. In addition, I had one of those stupid calendars which did not show the public holidays in Malaysia. But still....

Agak terasa bodoh la jugak semalam.
