Sorry, wrong direction given.....

In conjuction with the school holidays, I took two days leave to entertain cikgu haida and indah.

Yesterday, the whole day, we went out, shopping, jalan-jalan and visiting friends' houses.

One of the house is in Taman Puncak Jalil in Puchong/Bukit Jalil area. My wife's friend had given birth to a one day old baby boy.
It was our first time to that area. The road condition was very bad. We got confused with the initial direction, so we gave her a second call.

And the direction given was, " Aaa..terus je, nanti nampak orang jual pau. Then nampak Tadika Mawar Merah"

Sounds very straight forward and easy huh?

I saw one pau seller....and made a left turn. Tried to find Tadika Mawar Merah. Found more than 10 tadika/kindergartens but none was Tadika Mawar Merah. Then I made the second call, and confirm that it is Jalan 1/4 instead of all the Jalan 2/xxxxxes.....

I got out from the area and try to find another pau seller..sigh.....nampak org jual burger ader ler..
biar betull..pau ke burger??
isk......
Finally, I saw another pau seller. And right behind it is the Tadika Mawar...
Pheww.....Sib baik there's only two pau seller....kalau takk......Makan pau la sambil carik rumah

Moral of the story, if someone is coming to your house, please put your self in their shoes when giving direction

Then, the second house...
Again, poor direction was given..

Ada ke dia kata , " Jalan straight je...ada byk2 simpang..pandai2 la agak..... Then Ikut je keta yang banyak 2 tu..."
" Nanti jumpa jalan besar, nampak Petronas. Ada dua station. First one boleh nampak, and the second one, tak leh nampak. haa...u buat la u-turn kat Petronas yang tak nampak tu.."

What the mangkuk tingkat...??

Hahahahaha.......gilo apo? Tak penah aku dapat org bagi direction mcm ni..hehehe

1.Kalau aku pandai2, tak payah la aku tepon hang..
2. At that time , there were not much cars...I can say no car at all. So how am I going to follow "keta yang byk2 tu?"
3. Kalau aku tak nampak Petronas tu..cam ner aku nak buat u-turn??

Yang bestnye...bila dah sampai kat area tu..she said, "u can park anywhere. In front of the carwash tu kira dekat. "

So, "in front of the carwash" I parked. Carried Indah to level 3 using the stairs, just to realize that something is wrong...Apsal nombor rumah dia tak sama???
Oh my god??? salah block kot...?? Then I realized, it is not THE mentioned carwash. It was the OTHER carwash. There were more than one carwash at that area!!! ...Astaghfirullahalazimm.....
Apa punye direction niii...???

Moral of the story again......same as above..maleh nak cakap bykk...

SIGH....

HAHAHHAHAH.. aku tak leh berenti gelak!! tolong!!

hucs, kalo aku pun sakit jiwa dpt directions cam ni. Pernah dulu nak gi kenduri kawin kwn aku.. Ikut map pun buleh sesat dekat sejam!

Sometimes ppl take for granted the area that they live in coz they r used to the place. Yang kesiannye, pelawat2 yg tak biasa dgn tempat tu la..

Takpe, rumah aku senang je nak cari.. jemput le dtg bila hubby dah pindah KL nanti :)

I had that experience as well..went for a wedding, at first couldn't find the house via the map provided, then called a friend a few dozens time until I decided to pull over to one of the stall by the road, had my rojak, mee goreng and cendol and went back back to my place for a good sunday rest...didn't even reach the place...
