Cursed

Last night I went to Mid Valley Megamall, one of the biggest and most crowded shopping malls in the Klang Valley. I went to the mall alone without any companion. After I finished my business at the mall, I went down to the parking ticket payment counter, paid for the ticket, went out to the car park area and ........ I couldn't find my car because I forgot which bay I had parked her! (my car even has a name).

I have been to Mid Valley Megamall quite so many times but to tell the truth, every visit to the mall will end up with me seeking for my car (or my sister's/brother's/friends'). I always have problem with car park at shopping malls.

I still remember how horror I felt when I thought that my car (my mother's actually) had been stolen when I forgot which level I had parked the car at Bukit Jambul Shopping Mall in Penang. It was almost 2 am in the morning after my buddy and I had seen a mid-night movie (that movie was Elektra if I were not mistaken). When I noticed all bays at the mall's car park were unoccupied and my car was nowhere in sight, blood suddenly rushed quickly to my head. I almost cried because I was sure that the car had been stolen and I did not know how and what to tell my parents. Abah is going to kill me!. That was what I thought at that moment.

My sister once said jokingly to me that I always have problem with car park at shopping malls because I have been cursed. It was a really funny thought but I sometimes wonder maybe it's true because I couldn't help myself when I have to seek for my car at the huge, complicated and congested car park every time I go to Mid Valley Megamall.

kalau kat klcc, you can pick out a card indicating which level you park your car just before you enter the mall. it's quite helpful.

Mala, kat Sunway Pyramid pun ada sistem macam tu..sbb tu parking kat Sunway Pyramid x jadi masalah.. in fact kat situ setiap parking bay ada sensor, kalau occupied lampu kat atas merah, kalau vacant, lampu tu warna hijau. Sgt2 hepful.

Aku pulak kene curse, evrytime aku dah park keta, dah jln beratus tapak, aku terpikir, aku dah kunci keta ker belom..
So I ended up going back to the carpark just to make sure.. *sigh*

kah kah kah. lain kali amik gambar tiang terdekat ngan keta kau. itu la pedomannya.

zyrin said...

aaa... do what i do. lepas park keta, whip out your hphone, pastu ambik gmbr tiang sebelah ;)

Naz said...

Hadi/Muzie: Next time mmg kena macam tu la nampaknya!! =)

Farah Zahirah said...

Lepas ni ikut jer nasihat hadi tu.... tak pun ko tekan jer alarm kereta ko kalau keta dekat dengan ko dia akan berbunyi kalau tak memeang ko kena menapak la cari kereta tu.....

Aku pon ada masalah yang tak ingat keter dah kunci ke tak padahal perbuatan mengunci kereta tu mcm tindakan refleks je setiap kali keluar kete. Still, nak gak patah balik and check. Masalah tol.

But baybeh, kalau dah selalu sangat tak igt tpt parking, have u not learnt your lesson already? hahah hafal la no parking & lot pertama ko jumpe lepas masuk mall. Dulu aku ada masalah ni gak, tp aku start realize mende ni bebetul menyusahkan aku. Hahaha tu yang aku berubah dengan mengambil langkah menghafal secara serious tpt aku park. Haha :P

Anyway, I don't think it's a curse. :)
