Got this in the mail…
A man was driving down the road and ran out of gas. Just at that moment, a bee flew in his window.
The bee said, ‘What seems to be the problem?’
‘I’m out of gas,’ the man replied.
The bee told the man to wait right there and flew away. Minutes later, the man watched as an entire swarm of bees flew to his car and into his gas tank. After a few minutes, the bees flew out.
‘Try it now,’ said one bee.
The man turned the ignition key and the car started right up.
‘Wow!‘ the man exclaimed, ‘what did you put in my gas tank‘?
The bee answered,
Yup! I found it! Well,actually the woman who mend a drink stall at the UOA food court found it. Alhamdulillah!
The picture above is specially for Lollies who was wondering how in the world that a car can be started and stopped without using the key. You just need to remove the metal piece where you normally slot in your key and the white thingy is what was left after the piece was removed. So dah kira bogel la tu… Then you just need something, such as a screw driver to put on the black circle so that it can be turned. Turn clockwise to start and the other way to stop. Senang je kan?
Anyway, back to the missing key. The next day, before going to get the key set replaced, we (this time the whole family joined the search) had decided to make another visit to the food court at UOA as it was already closed the night before. Tak puas hati punya kes la ni. I went straight to the last place that I stopped on that fateful evening.
“Ada orang tinggal kunci kereta tak?“ I asked a woman there.
“Adaa…” and she gave me the key!
“Thank you very very very much!”
Lega gila rasa masa tuh. Since I got back the key and there was no need to get a new key set, we drove over to Ah Heng’s workshop. Ah Heng was the guy who macgyver-ed the ignition system. Since he dismantled it, it was best that he put it back together.
In short, after a brunch at Q-Bistro, the car was up and ready…
Last but not least, thanks to Inar and hubby for helping us in getting the car temporarily fixed while we looked for the key. You guys truly rock!
Jangan lupa check your spare key ha!

I read on the Saturday (6/12/2008) Star newspaper that the driver of the car or the fourth person who has no seat belt to wear at the rear seat will not be fined although the law is there after taking into consideration the rest of the factors involved.
*** updated ***
Come 1st January 2009, Malaysians are required by law to wear the rear seat belts while traveling in a car. I have nothing against that law as it is for our safety and bla bla bla… The law states that all the rear passenger of a car must wear the safety belts and therefore, it is against the law to carry more than three people in your back seat since there are only three seat belts available.
Now, this is the thing that hit me. Like being hit by a balloon filled of water. It’s not painful yet a bit unpleasant and made me wet…
What about those family who has four kids? Let’s say they are aged 5, 6, 7 and 8 years old. Are you going to leave one at home just because of the new law? What happened to the family holidays and Cuti Cuti Malaysiathat the government has been eagerly promoting? They would tell you go buy an MPV or get a second car. Or worse still, just leave one behind…
They don’t care. Those people who got together and come up with this law don’t care. They are one of those who are provided with a car by the government and with their fat salaries and “other” incomes, they can then by a big fat MPV for their wives. Why should they care?
