There were 8 in all, ranging from frogs, mice, snakes and one large monkey (!). Thank goodness there weren't any boars involved. A few weeks ago, while on an early morning run, hub had to maneuver over three crushed boar carcasses on the road. It was a mess. Thing was, he didn’t know then what they were because it was pitch black and prayed it wasn’t human. A few hours later, when I was on my way to send my son to preschool, they carcasses were still there. Pity the nasi lemak lady whose stall was just a meter away from them boars.
Anyway, Road kill Run was cut short to 7 miles due to unavoidable circumstances such as
- We had one full day of house hunting ahead so we wanted to start early.
- Malas ( okay, this one is avoidable but blaaaahhhhh)
Our prize for completing the run in just over one hour is nasi lemak ( menambahkan lagi mandom) and cheers from the kids for getting back before 8. Even my mom exclaimed, “ Wah! Finished so early!”
So we inhaled down our nasi lemak and rushed to town for our house hunting session. And OMG, nobody warned me house hunting in Taiping is such a pain in the rear. We went through 2 days of search and we’re still left empty handed. It’s so mentally and emotionally exhausting. I’m so grateful that the kids weren’t whining or anything. They went through it like it’s just another jalan-jalan session and only piped out “ Kami lapaq” during lunchtime and took naps when they were bored.
Anyway, just this morning an angel in disguise called up saying he’s got a house available for me. The location is fantastic, the price negotiable and after the weekend’s nightmarish search, this seems all too good to be true. I’m trying not to keep my hopes up but I CAN’T HELP IT.
We’re off to see the house this evening so everybody keep your fingers crossed.
Unnnnhhhhhh ( bunyi semua orang meng crosskan fingers sekuat hati sambil menutup mata).
