P license 。P驾驶执照

P驾驶执照已经跟我两年,今天总算是最后一天了!
P driving license had followed me for 2 years; today is the last day of my driving probation.

由于我生日在九月份,考完SPM就到外国旅行,加上17岁那时还参加了国民服役第三届的第二批,一直到服完役后我才考我的驾驶执照。
My birth date is on September, after my SPM I went for holidays, then after that I was in the third series and second badge of National Service, until finished my National Service only I took my driving license.

很幸运的我一次就考上了,而且是靠我自己的本事。(我没有贿赂考官!)
I am very lucky as I passed my driving exam during the first time, and also it’s all by my self.( I didn’t bribe the examiner!)

拿到驾驶执照的那一天是29/06/06。两年后就是28/06/08。
The day I had my driving license was 29/06/06. Two years later would be 28/06/07.

今天以后,终于可以拿下车上的P牌粘纸。呵呵呵!
At last I could take down the P sticker on my after today. Hohoho…

新幼儿园

在新的幼儿园教并没有想象中辛苦,或比较难。虽然星期一第一天到那里时,Ms.Lai就一直告诉我那里学生的程度并没有Malim哪里来的高。可是我教他们时,并没有Ms.Lai说的那样。我并没有教得特别辛苦或不高兴,反而好像学到更多东西。

那里有安亲班,所以早上和下午的老师会有点更动。早上包括我在内有六位老师,而下午两点时两位老师会先下班,另一位老师会进来叫那些小学生。我们这几个老师也会一起帮忙。

说真的那里的人对待我非常的好。也许是Ms.Lai在我来之前讲了很多好话。第一就是:我是大学生,而且是要读医科的大学生。第二,我长得漂亮又好看。这样难免会让人留下个好印象。就连学生Ms.Lai也会特别的介绍我。她会说:这是个漂亮又性感的老师,是有位学生告诉我的。

只是,我觉得有个老师好想妒嫉我。我对这种东西太敏感了,只要我觉得一点不对劲,我就会开始惕防这些人。毕竟我也遇上不少类似的事。

这位老师大我一岁,可是在这行做了4年,就是说她spm后就开始当幼教。第一天时我还觉得她满友善的。Ms.Lai都会叫她带领我,而我不明白的地方都会问她。可是第二天时,她就真的让我很不爽。

当时Ms.Lai就给我一张记录学生的数学程度表,她看到了就问:为什么你有这个我没有?为什么Ms.Lai没给我?
“你问我,我怎么知道啊?是Ms.Lai给我的你应该问她吧!”我心里想。而且她也没有教数学啦!给她有什么用啊!

过后她就很顺手的翻我的书包,而且是很光明正大的!好想那是那个书包的主人!当时我真得很不爽!我书包就在我隔壁,而她就那么顺其自然的在翻,好像那个书包就是她的,问也没问过一声。如果真得那么好奇,至少也问一声:“我看你书包一下可以吗?”

我才不相信人家翻你的书包你会不在意。而且向我这种超级不喜欢人家动我东西的人,更加让我很不爽。我看到了却没说什么,是给她脸,可是她翻了又翻,没完没了的。翻还好,她的目的还不是为了要看我书包里有什么,然后她也要有吧!这样很过分也!就这样一个举动就让我很反感。不需要别的事就可以让我认定她不会是我想认识的人。

我还是觉得她有样学样,什么都要和我一样。毕竟是我抢了她‘最年轻的老师’的位子。呵呵!好心点!我做到7月中好不好!

适应

新的地方、新的环境、新的同事、新的同学,又要开始从新适应。

今天我到总部去上班,最近太多是发生了,根本就没有时间让我消化一切。总而言之,我现在调去总部上班了。是Ms.Lai拜托我的,所以我也很不好意识拒绝她。

Ms.Lai在前两个月被调去总部管理幼儿园,当时我们Malim的得知消息时也有点惊讶。然后Malim那里就换了新的副院长。那个副院长是没有经验 的,之前她的工作是个室内设计师,她根本就没有本事管理一间幼儿园,连去巴刹买菜也像要她的命,一个月后她就辞去那分工了。当时我们的幼儿园就好像发生内 部纷乱,没有了主管哪会不乱啊?

上个星期来了新的副院长,这次的副院长还好,算是有很多年做幼教的经验,很多是她都会一手包办。好不容易一切平静下来,Joslyn与玲姐的关系开始破裂。

我真得没想到当幼教也会有那么过的是是非非,还有小人会陷害你。当幼教还以为只是和小孩相处,却没有先到同事之间也会有人想要陷害你。很庆幸的,这一次我 竟然可以避免被针对。当和一班很单纯的小孩相处时,人性邪恶的思想和丑陋的一面更突出。原来成人的世界里试那么地复杂的。

Ms.Lai上个星期打电话给我,问我是否可以到总部去帮忙她。原本我是拒绝了她的,因为我剩下一个月的工作时间,七月中我就打算辞职了。而且到新的地方 又要适应新的环境。我在Malim那里都教得好好的,每天还可以看到我亲爱的学生。可是Ms.Lai在过两天后又打电话给我拜托我,她问了两次,我真得很 不好意思要拒绝她。所以我还是到总部去帮忙了。

今天第一天上班,难免会手忙脚乱。而且那里学生的程度并没有Malim那里的学生来得好。那里老师的调动太大了,很多学生的学业多多少少当然会受到影响。那里的学生不只有华人,还有马来人和印度人,而且还有两个智障儿。他们两个还是亲戚关系,真得很可怜。

虽然第一天手忙脚乱的,最重要还是我已经尽力了。我一直提醒自己,一定要尽我全力做到最好。

才离开我以前的学校一天,我已经开始想念我以前那里的小孩了。

送机(二)。departure (2)

续......
continue......




一个星期已过,我还没写送机的情况。
One week gone, and I still not yet post about the departure.

那天是星期六,前一天凌晨4点多才睡,我早上八点多就自然睡醒。看着身边的敏和珍睡到那么甜,想要继续睡却怎么也睡不着。就一直躺到九点多才起身,上上网。
That day was Saturday, the day before we slept at 4something in the morning. But I woke up at 8 something in the morning naturally. Watching mei and Amanda sleep so soundly, I also wish I can continue my sleep but I just can’t. then I just lye until 9 something only wake up, went for online.

Vu早上有个考试,考试后一点多,我们便一起去吃午餐。吃完午餐便在他回家收拾。三点多我到他的家时,他的一群朋友都在他的家,就一起欢送他。拍拍照、说祝福的话等。
Vu had a exam in the morning, after his exam was 1 something in the afternoon, we went for lunch. After lunch I sent him back for packing. I reach his house around 3 something, his friends was gathering at there, having farewell and taking photos.

拍照后我们便出发了。
After that we were on our journey.

抵达LCCT是已经是check in的时间。我们去登记时,那位服务员说现在马上要进去登机处。他也感谢我送他到这里,然后给了一个拥抱,我们也叫对方保重。
It was quite late when we reached LCCT. We went to check in and the people in service said what they have to go into the departures immediately. Vu say thanks to me for sending him there. And then give me a hug and we wish each other take care.

看着他进关却失去了感觉。当时,我什么感觉都没有。伤感?没有。不舍?没有。就是没有感觉,什么感觉都没有。我当时突然觉得自己很无情。是我无情?还是因为太多感情了,突然间什么感情也感觉不到?
Watching he walk into the departure gate, I don’t have any feelings at all. Feeling sad? No. Totally don’t have feelings anymore. That time I felt that I am quite mean. Am I mean? Or I had too many feelings, until I can’t feel my feelings at that moment.

还是因为我太坚强了?我并没有让自己特别坚强啊。
Or I am too tough? I didn’t make myself to be tough.

我真得找不到任何理由来解释我没有感觉。
I really can’t find any reason to explain my feeling-less.

也许,我早已做好准备。
Or maybe I already prepare very early before.







Vu's keychain. hahaha...

送机(一)。departure (1)

失踪了好几天,现在也应该浮上来了。
i have been lost for these few days, it's time for me to reappear.

上次Vu来马六甲有告诉我他将要离开马来西亚,去Melbourn深造。他一直叫我在周末时去cyber找他,可是我真得很懒惰要上去cyber。
last time when Vu came to Malacca he had told me he will be living Malaysia soon, further his studies in Melbourn. he keep on ask me to go to cyber in the weekend, but i am lazy to go up.

过后他告诉我他将会乘坐6月14日的班机离开马六甲。我突然有一种冲动想要送他那一趟班机。挣扎了很久,最后还是决定要去。
later he told me his flight will be on 14th of june. i suddenly have the eager wanted to send him until the airport. after struggling for quite some times, i decided to go.

上个星期一开始计划我的行程。星期三问 a mei 是否可以去她的宿舍住一晚,反正她们也认识Vu的,也知道他要离开了,只是她们现在正面临大考,不知道会不会打扰到她们。a mei 很乐意让我在那里住一晚。当天晚上我通知我妈妈,星期五放工后我才上去cyber。
i plan my trip on last monday. on wednesday i asked a mei weather i can stay at her hostel for one night, they also know Vu and know he's leaving soon. only that mei are facing final exam and worry of bothering them. a mei willing to let me stay there. then that night i inform my mom that i'm going to cyber on friday after work.

星期五抵达那里时大约9点多晚上。先去找a mei和amanda。然后Vu还在他的学校LimKokWing彩排星期六的show,要我去接他。a mei 就很想去看LKW有什么show,我们就一起去接Vu。送他回家清洗后,我们就到O-Town去吃晚餐。
i arrived around 9 something on friday night. i go to mei and amanda's hostel. Vu is still at his college LKW, having some show going on, then want me to fetch him after that. mei wanted to go to see what's going on so she followed me. i fetch him go back for shower then we ahead to O-Town for dinner.


O-Town.


吃晚餐后,我们就约Vu家的那一群越南朋友到Putrajaya的那几个地方去。拍了一些照片,又弯了几个地方,就好像回到以前那样。上次我、a mei和amanda读完foundation要离开cyber时,也是去了O-Town,然后又到那putrajaya桥,拍拍照聊聊天的。一直到晚上3点多我们才回去。
after dinner we invited Vu and his vietnamese housemate to putrajaya and a few places. after taking some photo, we round a few places, just like back to last time. last time when mei, amanda and i finished our foundation and leaving cyber, we also went to O-Town, then putrajaya bridge, took some photo, having some conversation. we went back around 3 something in the morning.


Vu writing his own name.


stupid motto: buat kerja.


group photo with vietnamese guys...


at putrajaya bridge


upper: 3 of us with Vu.


me, amanda and mei


四点多我们才准备要睡觉,睡觉前我们仨躺在床上聊天,回想起以前我们和那一群越南朋友是怎么认识的,迷迷糊糊地睡着了。
4 something only we're prepare to sleep, three of us lying on bed and chit-chatting, think back how we know these group on vietnamese friend.

迟来的祝福

致:我的好朋友--秀贞

不知何时开始我常常把我想对我朋友说的话通过这里来表达。刚刚我读过你的部落格,发现原来你也有那么一段很难忘的童年。反问自己难忘的童年到底是则怎样的。我好像已经很久么又会想我的童年。而我的回忆都只回顾到几年前。

非常抱歉我没有祝你生日快乐,说真的我是忘记了,是不是很不够朋友啊?不知道什么时候开始我已经不再像要记住那些生日日期。偷偷告诉你,有时连我妈妈的生日也会搞错,很不孝吧!呵呵!说到你的生日我就会想到当时我们在国民服役的那个时候,当时我出营了还会去跟你庆祝生日。现在我好像已经没有那种‘心’了。我也不知道为什么。你也可以查查我这部落格里不知道已经向多少个人因为没有祝他们生日快乐而向他们道歉。

像当年,我都会记得每个朋友的生日日期。我会想很多很特别的庆祝方式,或送他们一些花心思的礼物,又或者寄一份卡片加上一封信之类的。可是近年来我都不再做这种事情了。就好像失去了那一份诚意。可以说现在我根本就没记住那一个朋友的生日。

虽然我们不常见面,可是每一次我们见面时都会了很多很多的话题,场面也不会冷掉。这是我非常非常珍惜的一点。友情得来不易,要维持一段友情根不容易。当我知道你面对那么多的不愉快时,我并不能帮上什么忙,但至少我可以借你我的耳朵,让你跟我聊聊你的心事。

我以前也会借以要是我的朋友没有祝福我,所以我当然明白你的心情。但是现在我并不会很在意这一切,反而会害怕它的来临。说真的,当我们小时候是却盼望长大,长大后却像回到小时候。你不要看我这个样子,我小时候可是没有朋友的。我也不知道为什么,是能以‘他们都妒忌我’来安慰自己。有一个记忆我非常清楚,那就是有一次我在学校庆祝生日,那时候每个人都想接近我,那一天他们就当上我的好朋友。所以我知道真正的友情是很难寻找的。很可惜的,我很多段的友情都是不欢而散的。

只希望我们的友情可以像我们在营里的那个时候。当时的我们就是那么的要好。完完全全不认识的两个人在那么短的时间就变成那么要好,而你也是我唯一出营后还一直保持联络的朋友。要是你觉得祝福是很重要的,我从今天开始会牢牢记住你的生日的。呵呵!在这边许下的第一个承诺给你。哈哈哈!

我还要说一次非常非常对不起没有在你生日的那一天祝福你。但是你要记得,即使没有人祝福你,你也要让自己在你生日的那一天活得最最最开心。你也一定知道靠自己还是最可靠的,不是吗?

这一份迟来的祝福,希望你不会介意。虽然不常找你,但是你在我心里是有位置的。只要你需要我时,我一定会出现,就像以前那样的照顾着你。

加油哦!
生活上的不如意并不是发生在你一个人的身上。
校园生活的不愉快也不是只有你感受到。
和家人相处的困难不只是你又,因为家家都有本难念的经。
要常常提醒自己:我每一天都要活得跟好!



p/s:你的名我没写错吧!是不是一个很好的井进步。呵呵!开玩笑的啦!

祝你生日快乐!很迟很迟的生日快乐!




永远的好朋友,
淑琳上。

passing afternoon

today's weather was so great.
repeating listen to Passing Afternoon by Iron and Wine.
i am lost in my own world.
kinda like today's afternoon...
i'm willing to spend every afternoon like this......
it's very peaceful.

今天的天气特别好。
重复听着 Iron and Wine 的 Passing Afternoon。
我已沉没在自己的世界里。
蛮喜欢这样的中午...
很愿意每天的中午都这样度过......
真得很平静。




Passing Afternoon
Artist(Band):Iron & Wine




There are times that walk from you like some passing afternoon
Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon
And she chose a yard to burn but the ground remembers her
Wooden spoons, her children stir her Bougainvillea blooms


There are things that drift away like our endless, numbered days
Autumn blew the quilt right off the perfect bed she made
And she's chosen to believe in the hymns her mother sings
Sunday pulls its children from their piles of fallen leaves


There are sailing ships that pass all our bodies in the grass
Springtime calls her children 'till she let's them go at last
And she's chosen where to be, though she's lost her wedding ring
Somewhere near her misplaced jar of Bougainvillea seeds


There are things we can't recall, blind as night that finds us all
Winter tucks her children in, her fragile china dolls
But my hands remember hers, rolling 'round the shaded ferns
Naked arms, her secrets still like songs I'd never learned

There are names across the sea, only now I do believe
Sometimes, with the windows closed, she'll sit and think of me
But she'll mend his tattered clothes and they'll kiss as if they know
A baby sleeps in all our bones, so scared to be alone

travel in Malacca

Last week, Vu told me he would like to visit Malacca in the coming weekend. At first he says he will come alone... then I tell him to invite some friend and come together with him. Few days later he said 2 friends will come along with him. Until last Friday he says only one friend coming to Malacca.
上个星期Vu说他想在这个周末要来马六甲。刚开始时他说只是他一个人来,过后我建议他不如约一些他的朋友一起来。过了几天他说有两个朋友会跟他一起来。一直到星期五时,他说只有一个朋友会跟他来马六甲游玩。


I was worried at first cause I am not very sure that he will come or not. As before, another friend of mine promised twice to come to Malacca and visit me but at last canceled the plan.
刚开始时我有点担心的。之前我的朋友两度答应我说要来马六甲游玩的,但是每一次在最后一分钟时才取消他们的行程。



Friday (30/05/08)
today was parent's day in the kindergarten that I am teaching. This is the first time I have to meet the parent and talked about the kids that I’ve taught. Quite nervous at first but luckily everything went so smoothly. Don't have parent which complained too much about our teaching. Feel excited the whole day and also Vu is coming today. He sms me at night saying he is on the way to get bus in Pudu to Malacca. The bus departs on 10pm and only will arrive on midnight I guess. So I waited for them until pass 12 midnight. They arrived quite in time. Vu and his friend, Edward will stay in my house. I pick them up and they had supper in my house.
星期五(30/05/08)
今天在我工作幼儿园那里的家长日。这是我第一次需要单独面对面那些学生的家长讨论他们的孩子在学校的情况。开始时是有点紧张,还好一切都那么顺利。还好那些家长不会有很多问题的关于我们的教学。今天一整天都很兴奋,也是因为Vu今天将来马六甲。晚上时他告诉我他的巴士出发时间是10点晚上,我想他们到达的时间也大概是午夜12点。他们到达时间也蛮准时的。Vu和他的朋友,Edward会住在我的家。我在他们到达我家然后吃了宵夜。



Saturday (31/05/08)
I don't really plan my trip actually... I will be their tour guide for this few days. I woke up at 9 to get ready then give them a morning call at 10am. Can’t believe they just can't wake up when I knock the door. I have to call Vu's phone to wake him up. We had breakfast in my house as my mom was so eager to cook red wine mee sua for them. They like it!
星期六(31/05/08)
我其实并没有真正计划我的行程的,就走一步算一步吧。早上九点我就起身了,准备好后才叫他们起床。他们竟然没有听到我敲他们的门,所以我只好打电话给Vu叫他起身。我们在我家吃早餐因为我妈妈很像要让他们尝试我们的红酒面线。他们也很喜欢的,还说很香。


After breakfast, I just use the Bukit Cina was as I want to find the Taming Sari Tower. Surprisingly I found it accidentally. It is just beside the Malacca Megamall or so-called Dataran Pahlawan aka DP. So I just parked my car there and we were buying the tickets. Luckily I went to buy that ticket. Quite expensive though. It cost RM20 for adult. But if you were Malaccan then they will give you 50% discount. So I buy the 3 ticket for RM10 each. They were just so lucky to have me as tour guide. The time spent in the tower was just 7 minute. The view is not bad, but for me I don't think I will spend RM10 to go up there for the second time.
早餐后我们便开始我们的行程。我就用了Bukit Cina的那条路就是为了要寻找那个马六甲刚刚建的塔。很惊讶的我竟然可以误打误闯的找到那个塔,就刚好在Dataran Pahlawan 的隔壁。放好我的车后我变去买票。一张成人票竟然是RM20。说真的是有点贵咯。还好是我买票。那个售票员问我来自哪里,我说我是马六甲人,他便要求我的身份证证明,然后他会给我50%的折扣。所以我就买3张票10块钱的票,反正他们也不知道我的朋友来自哪里。我这个当导游的还真不赖。那个塔在空中旋转的时间也不过是7分钟。风景是很不错,可是对我来说我想我不会再花我的10块钱在上去第二次。



Taming Sari Tower


view from the tower


a phone booth that attracted our attention.


Then we go to the A' Famosa, St. Paul Hill, museums, St. Francis Xavier Church, the red house and so on. After that, we had lunch in Sushi King. I planed to bring them eat the famous Malacca Chicken Rice Ball but I just can’t find that shop. I guess it was shifted or closed. Then Edward wanted to eat Sushi King so we just go there for our lunch. After our lunch is nearly evening, we went to seaside to watch sunset. This is the first time I really watch sunset. It was so so so so fun. They took so many photograph and we are having a very good moment.
过后我就在他们到马六甲古城、三保山、博物馆、教堂、红屋等。过后我们就在Sushi King享用午餐。我其实是要带他们去吃古城鸡饭粒的,可是我却找不到上次我去的那家餐馆,可能搬走了吧。Edward说他想吃Sushi King那我只好带他去吃咯。吃我们的午餐后已经是接近傍晚了,我们便到海边看夕阳。这是我第一次真正看夕阳。真得很好很好玩。他们也派了不少照片。我们也度过了很美好的时光。

Vu you look better here but Edward, what are you doing? haha...


professional photographer


the sunsets-taken by me











this is the best sunset that i've took. even the professional photographer is so impressed with me. wuahahahaha.... Vu didn't believe that i took this photo. he insist that i copy from the way he took the sunset. even Edward didn't took as well as mine. omg... i should change my course.




After the sun set, I bring them to the Malacca River. I was planning to bring them to sit the Malacca River Cruise which brings you along the Malacca River and there will be some people explaining the history of the river and also history of Malacca. But when we reach there only I realized there were some events going on. That day was Malacca River Feast. We heard that there will be firework around so we plan to stay until we see the firework and also go to the boat. But until the firework was over only we know we are not allowed to go on the boat unless for the VIPs. Saw Gan Tian Lu and Ali Rustam though… nothing special because I don’t really like him. Sorry to say about that.
看完夕阳后,我带他们到马六甲河。其实我们是像要乘坐船游玩马六甲河的。到达时才知道当天有很盛大的马六甲河庆典。过后听说会有放烟花。他们为了要拍照便打算留下来。放烟花过后才知道我们不可以乘坐轮船,他们只给那些大人物上船。看到马六甲市长Ali Rustam和YB颜天禄。并没有特别感觉,我并不是很喜欢他们。


the clown


he/she is was trying to attract my attention.


the partner.
they scared a lot of kids. haha...


posing for photograph


they want to bomb the boat that the chief minister of Malacca went into.
this is just so damn funny.




this 2 picture taken by Vu. now only i know he likes to take people's backside.
i give you mine la.....


It was quite late already. So we either go to have our late dinner or go to Jonker Street. The roads on weekend in Malacca are all jammed. We are stuck in jammed more then on the place we wanted to visit. We decided to have our dinner as we are hungry and tired. I bring them to Portuguese Settlement to have out seafood dinner. Edward was so happy that he can have his favorite seafood at last. We only order crab and fish. Edward was satisfied as he can eat crab at last. He seldom eats crab since he came to Malaysia. He is an Indonesian Chinese.
是有点迟了,而且一直在塞车。马六甲的周末总会在塞车中度过。我们只有去吃晚餐或去鸡场街。最后我们也决定去吃我们的晚餐,因为我们都有点累了。我便带他们去葡萄牙村吃海鲜。Edward很开心因为他最喜欢吃海鲜了尤其是螃蟹,和我一样诶!他说自从他从印尼来到马来西亚后就很少吃海鲜了,因为他的朋友并不喜欢吃,而且嫌贵。我们只点了螃蟹和鱼。


In conclusion we just didn’t go to Jonker Street, quite a waste actually.
总结是我们没去鸡场街,其实有点后悔。



Sunday (01/06/08)
We had breakfast + lunch together with my mom as she really wants to treat them a meal. So we had dim sum near my house which is quite famous. Edward and Vu say some of the food taste alike in their country. They also get to eat Nyonya dumpling there. We were just so lucky to get to eat the dumpling as it was sold out at first. Then later another stock came in. Their friend also called them to try that food if they have chance to come to Malacca. According to their friend it was the famous food in Malacca.
星期日(01/06/08)
我妈妈一直想请他们吃一餐,所以我们便去吃点心,算是早餐+午餐,当是有点迟了,快中午12点了。他们说那些食物的味道类似他们国家的。他们还说他们的朋友教他们来马六甲就要尝试马六甲的Nyonya粽子。


After our brunch I bring them to temple. There were two temples which is famous in Malacca. So they just took whatever picture that they need for assignment and we just walked around the old streets. They bought some souvenirs there. Then we had our early dinner in the Jonker Street. At last I have the chance to let them taste the Chicken Rice Ball. Then we still go into some shop and didn’t realize that the time passed so fast.
吃完后我带他们到青云亭拍些照片。他们也在那里买了一些手信。我们也到处去走走。过后我们来到鸡场街。我终于有机会让他们尝试马六甲的古城鸡饭粒。用餐后我们还走了一家店面,然后就没有发现到时间的流逝。


They bought the bus ticket back to KL at 5pm. Then the time was 4.45pm and we were in a rush. The traffic was jammed again and caused us stuck again in the jammed. We arrived at the Malacca Sentral just in time but the bus leaved. We are all so speechless and just laughing. If there were no bus left then they will stay in my house for another day and leave Malacca the next morning or they have another chance… that was waiting for buses which going to KL and have empty sits. There was no more ticket to go back to KL as all the tickets were sold off. So the only chance we have is just waiting. We heard there was another bus at 6pm so we wait for that bus.
由于他们买的车票是下午5点的。当时时间已经是下午4.45了,很匆忙的赶去车站,然后又塞车。当我们到达车站时刚好5点,可是巴士刚刚开走,就在我们面前离开,令我们措手不及。当时我们都不知道说什么好,只是一直笑。如果真的没有回去KL的巴士他们就只好再住我家多一天,隔天早上才回去。在不然就是等下一趟巴士,看巴士司机要不要载。所有去KL的车票都以售光,我们唯一能做得就只是等了。过后听说6点还会有一趟去KL的巴士,我们只好等那一趟了。



I just hate bus!
我就是讨厌巴士!



The 6pm bus arrived then we waited for the passenger to go up the bus first. Then I was going to the ticket collector to ask about the permission weather he would let them to get up the bus. There came another guy which also a bus driver I guess wanted to let his so-called-relative (anak buah) to go on the bus. Then the ticket collector says: you don’t ask me but the bus driver, I’m just the ticket collector.
六点的巴士到达目的,可是我们得等那些乘客上完巴士。当时我正要去问那个收票员问他是否可以让我朋友上这趟巴士。刚巧就有一个男人,也是巴士司机问收票员可以让他那个所谓的‘亲人’上巴士,那收票员说他不能做决定,因为他并不是巴士司机,巴士司机就在前面。


I was just beside him then I heard that conversation, then I just rush to the bus driver and ask for his permission. He just says that we have to pay again for the ticket to him. (Malaysian will understand what he means). Then I say sure I will pay him. Just at the same time, a few more people came and say they missed the bus before and wanted to get up this bus, especially the guy which also a bus driver wanted to give his ‘relative’ to go on the bus. The actual bus driver was not very happy and says that he already promised to give us first. Then the guy went up the bus and count for the sit which is empty. Then he says there are 7 places. I just feel that we might have the chance to get up that bus.
听到他们的对话后,我就一马当先走到那个巴士司机的前面,问问他是否可以让我们搭他的巴士,因为我们错过上一趟巴士。那司机只是说我们得服过那车票的钱给他。(明白明白啦!)。我便说我当然会给钱。刚好那个时候就出现了好几个人,他们也是因为错过巴士而要搭这一辆巴士,尤其是那个要给他所谓‘亲人’的那个男子。那个真正的巴士司机已经开始不高兴,他说他已经答应让我们先上。那个男人便走上巴士算剩下的空位。他说还有7个空位。我当时觉得我们有很大的机会可以上那巴士。


There were like a small fight going around. The guy which wanted to let his relative go up the bus call his so-called-relative to go up the bus. Then the bus driver gets angry and chased him down. He says this is his bus and he has the rights to let whoever he wants to get to his bus. Then another Malay lady also wanted to let a young lady to get up the bus as she also missed the last bus. The bus driver says the bus was full, he even take out a list to prove it. Then the lady was like ‘we are Malay so you help a bit la…’ But damn luckily, then bus driver says No. He is based on first come first served, and we are the first to come to ask him. Then the lady still trying to persuade him but still failed. The bus driver just insist that he will only follow order and his principle—first come first served. Then the bus driver was calling the last call for that bus. Some of the people was trying to get in the bus but stopped by the driver. Then he just let Vu and Edward go up that bus.
当时就好像发生一小段的插曲。那个所谓要给他‘亲人上巴士的那个男人就叫他的‘亲人’上巴士,弄得那个巴士司机很不高兴,马上喊他下车问他要干吗?他还说他要处理我们这一边的两个人先。他说这是他的巴士,他有权力要给谁上。这时候就有一个妇女来,她也是因为错过巴士想要来搭这一趟的巴士。那巴士司机就说已经满了,还拿出名单给她看。然后那妇女就好像‘我们都是马来人你就帮忙一点啦…’可是我们是超幸运的,那个巴士司机说不行就不行。他说他是先到先得的。谁先来问他就给谁先。那妇女还是不断的想要改变他的注意可是还是失败。那个司机就是坚持他的原则。然后那巴士司机直让我那两个朋友上巴士。


I was so relieved and feel better. I just feel that I caused them to miss the bus. I should drove them to the bus station earlier then the departure time of the bus. Luckily they found a bus and a bus driver which wailing to let them get on the bus. And I also feel lucky as I just step to the front earlier then other people. If not I don’t think they would get to the bus so early.
当时我真得松了一空气也觉得好一点。总觉得是我害到他们错过他们的巴士的。我应该有时间观念,早点带他们到巴士站等巴士。还好我们找到肯让我们上巴士的司机。我也觉得很幸运早一步问那司机。要不然我朋友也不会搭上那一趟的巴士。


The bus just left right after they went up the bus. As I watched the bus leave, my heart sinks deep down to nowhere.
我看着他们上巴士后便出发。看着巴士满满的离去,我的心也不知道已经沉没到哪里了。
