It was the weekend of AH's birthday so a lil special time had to be put aside for her. then with the cikgu home, as usual the house spilled over with his buddies. really, these guys just love each others company (much to the consternation of their gilfriends lol) and always seem to have something planned. right now they're going thru a board-game craze (before this it was Left 4 Dead) and many a morning have i woken up to a house full of sleeping young men lol. seems that even AI who's usually tied to his xbox have been infected.. in fact i must say that the infection has become quite severe -_-'
Between keeping the boys fed and spending some bonding time with my daughter, i also had a couple of other things lined up. the aqiqah of a neighbour's granddaughter and the wedding reception of an old friend.
And with so much going on, the wind was completely knocked off our sails when both our cars decided to break down. yup not one but two!! one was already in the workshop for a busted radiator when suddenly out of the blue, the other car's indicator started blinking out signals of a faulty brake system.
Ayayayayai. cannot compromise on brakes la so that left us with only one option - AI's 'poltergeist' car!!! why poltergeist? bcos it has this quirky habit of locking & unlocking itself any time it pleases. plus an alarm that gets activated at the most unexpected times and places.. usually where theres lots of people about lol e.g. busy junctions/intersections/traffic lights or when you're trying to park at a crowded mall or just cruising the neighbourhood. you even get to feel like an ice cream van sometimes. golfman says its probably the electrical wiring, dunno. since AI's always busy with classes & discussions, we just havent gotten round to fixing it.
Gawd getting about was quite a nightmare with so many of us depending on that one car but we somehow managed, by the skin of our teeth lol. Anyhoo heres sharing some pics of the hyper weekend.
