My Real Birthday Crasher

Yesterday was my birthday and today I’m still in the mood of celebrating it. Even it was spoiled by my boss phone call. The mood is still here. Burried deep inside my heart. 🙂 Everything went smooth. Today was still my off day, untill this evening.. when everything went berzerk! It was even more bad and much more worse than yesterday. Today will be my good lesson and I will remember it until the day I close my eyes… Alhamdulillah, God still let me watch / walk / feel / touch / breath the air in this unique world…

I had a massive car accident today, this evening… And I almost killed my self in the crash. I was driving at 135-145km/h (as usual and not fast enough.. at least for me) in a two lanes flyover with bends. The flyover was quite high butd I never know or care about its height…

I was driving as usual that evening. Heading to RHB Bank to pay my home rent when I took the corner (heading to left) as usual (touge style) only to find out someone, somebody did purposely spilled an oil on the road especially on the corner part. Without any warning, my car started to spun out in a fast manner moving to the left towards the guardrails that prevent ‘Sopit’ from jump off the flyover and I know, with this kind of speed, I could easily crash the guardrail and fall off the flyover before landing on the ground.. with explosions perhaps before I’ll burn to death and a torn body to pieces…

By this time, I’ve realize how my four tyres has loose its grips on the road. Thank god, I didn’t panic and still can push my brain to think a better solutions before I fall off. What I do was, twice of clucth kicking with drop shifting and kick the accelerator hard to make my RPM gone crazy and counter-steer of course with some little e-brakes help technique.. Finally I’d manage to change the direction of my spinning car. Moving from left to right direction now.. But I still can’t stop the car from spinning as I guess the oil on the road was too much and still fresh and wet.

In a split second, I hit the guardrail on my right side with my back bumper crash on it first before the back side of my car joined them.. I finally stopped. But hanging in a middle of a divider with the back side of my car is now facing the coming traffic from the other road and the front side of my car’s facing the going traffic.. I breaks not only the guardrail, but my back bumper, under carriage and some part of my car body.

Thank god i’m still here writting and posting this up, after I settled everything.. And I almost involve in a fight with a 5-6 tow trucks attendant since I blame them all that they are the one who did purposely spilled the oil and pray for someone to crash on it so that they could get extra ‘income’ for the day.. Why and how I come to think that they do these ‘dirty job’ purposely..? Because there was two tow trucks and more than three cars complete with walkie talkie up on the flyover withing a second after I carsh.. Luckily, they never fight me back.. And I ask them to handle the traffic flow while I need sometime to move my car from being stuck in the middle of a divider and collecting my bumper to put it on my back seat.. Syukur alhamdulillah… I’ve survive and only suffered a few cuts on my finger and legs…

WARNING : The flyover location was in Klang, Selangor with so many of similar accidents happen. There are more than three car has fall from it according to the police. The flyover was located on top of a roundabout called ‘Bulatan Simpang Lima’…

I was celebrating my birthday at T.G.I Friday, One Utama when suddenly my boss called me on phone and ask me to come over to office and help him settled up some jobs. Are you kidding? It was my birthday and my  off day for God’s sake..? Where are my other office staffs? But never to disappoint him, I finally ate my chocolate cake in this bloody office…

This really make sense when you are working in a M E D I A company…

Semalam Di Aceh (Yesterday In Aceh)

Map of Aceh
Aceh. The place. The place where it used to be known as the ‘Serambi Mekah’ (The corner of Makkah). The land where it all started for the ‘Malays’. The land where the Islamic religion first rose in the Malay Archipelago back in the 11th Century. Now, Has been torned apart to pieces. By The Republic of Indonesia. Dutch Colonial. Tsunami. Western ideology through multi-national products. Tv shows. Magazine and et cetera. Then come GAM (Gerakkan Aceh Merdeka / Free Aceh Movement). Try to bring back Aceh and its citizen back to their roots. Back on their glorious days along with Melaka, Demak and Majapahit era in the 13th-14th century. Where Islam as the main religion and believes. Including its laws and traditions. But… Sad to say, their intention was being hold back by the Republic of Indonesia and they’ve been drag into a guerrilla war for a year with the TNI (Tentera Nasional Indonesia / Indonesian National Army).

GAM Army

I remember spoken to one of Acehnese. And what he told me makes me remember it until now..

Tentera GAM udah turun dari gunung! Mereka-mereka ini akan membawa kita semua pulang ke jalan asal. Pulang ke serambi Mekah yang sebenar. Aceh akan merdeka juga akhirnya..!

But still Aceh is Aceh. The people are still there hanging on those lullaby memories. Still hope and wish to be free on their own. To stand on their own feet. Not to rely on the Republic or any other countries. I personally believe that Aceh is strong enough. They’ll be on their own someday.

I also remember what the Malaysian goverment has said to GAM during the issue was hot on every home TV.

We will not involve in any of GAM activity and their activist. We will not tolerate this and will never send any help to GAM nor the Indonesian National Army.

I personally have nothing against on what the goverment has said. But being someone with a strong history knowledge and background, I doubt that..! Aceh has helped us a lot during their glorious era. Back in the 14th century. Aceh helped us settle any of our religious misinterpretation and a lots more. And the bast part above all, They’ve helped us during the war with Portuguese in 1511. Aceh helped the whole battalion of army led by the well known Laksamana Hang Nadim, Son of Laksamana Hang Tuah. In 1516, Hang Nadim attacked Melaka with the hope of recapturing it from the Portuguese, but the attack was unsuccessful. In 1524, Hang Nadim also besieged Melaka with the help from Aceh, Java and Demak in the hope of preventing food reaching the town. After 24 days, the Portuguese were relieved by reinforcements from Goa.

Gerakan Aceh Merdeka

Afterall, the Malaysian has involve in freeing Timor Timor which now known under the name Timor Leste. And they got nothing to do with any Malaysian. And they’ve turned to be a non-muslim country – independently – not attached to the Republic of Indonesia. So, why can’t we help Aceh? Set them free. So that they can be on their own. Plus the Bonus part is that they’re Muslim. Not like the Republic itself…
