thus i asked of the fuel station worker for the direction to the golf club. he gave us a negative respond. i said thank you and went back to the car. i wanted to gave up. but then, i decided to ask again, but this time, to a 40 something guy who was filling in fuel for his car besides our counter. thankfully, he knows exactly where the golf club is! he gave me EXTREMELY CLEAR directions to the location. he even repeated twice. i was so thankful to him! thank you sire! did you get the lesson here? if you want to know where the golf club is, ask the guy with the expensive car. not vice versa.
after getting our instructions, we drift off again and was praying so hard that Allah will smoothen our direction to our destination. i followed all the right roads until one part, where, sobs sobs, we got lost again. at this time, it was already 8.30pm. the talk started at 8pm. but thankfully we managed to u-turn back and somewhat, somehow, miraculously,(see, i am bad at memorizing complicated road directions) found the correct road and finally, VOILA! we saw the KGPA sign board. i actually screamed in the car, shouting at adyla 'OH MY GOD ADYLA!!! yeay!! we found it!!' yes, we were overjoyed with happiness. after all, we had been looking forward for the talk since last week.
but, i guess it was really not meant for us to attend that talk. we actually found the location (it was right in front of me), but i was driving on the wrong lane, and thus had to follow the traffic flow. at that point, it was already 9.15pm. i was very devastated. tried to find a way to u-turn but there was none near by. that was the moment where i actually gave up totally on attending the talk. thus i drove all the way back into KL. i am actually very grateful to adyla for staying cool and calm and cheerful through out the journey. if otherwise, i'm pretty sure things will turn out a bit ugly. thanks dear =)
so, after the failed mission, we decided to go for our dinner. in the hope that good food will cure our sadness. we went to the naan place at jalan medan tuanku and enjoyed some good tasty dinner. and we drove back to MMU after that.
the thing is, i was devastated. if you were with me you could tell it. but, i did one fatal mistake during the journey. only adyla and i know. i think, for that, i don't deserve the knowledge that was being given at the talk today. my reflection of the journey was simple;
the knowledge is not for me to hold, yet. not for us to hold, yet.
