Ratu Sesat

Anyone remembers the story of me going through Damansara to get back home from Tugu Negara?

Or of a year ago when I lost Nik and just went straight on the highway heading to Shah Alam?

Or my countless stories of taking the wrong turns, and u-turning back...or sometimes I don't even take the u-turn and just find the next exit that's familiar.

But most times I'm not lost but just missed out on the right exit and ended up further from my destination.

Reckless? Irresponsible? Careless? Dumb? Or plain stupid for not 'planning' ahead? You choose.

Today I got lost again. But as usual, it was caused by my negligence to read the signboard clearly. Or maybe blame, as the above-mentioned Nik does, on Malaysia's signboards that are Instead of heading to KL from Shah Alam, we (me and Adilah) were heading for Sabak Bernam. After I "touchED'n'WENT", we were both speechless as the scene was...unrecognizable. When Adilah spoke up I said, "Well, at least it's pretty in green." Then of course she screamed at me and asked me to take the u-turn and alas we were back at square one: in Shah Alam. I just so happen took the flyover instead of turning left. Small mistake :p

Anyway, after laughing our ass off, Adilah said, "Aku tak penah tak sesat kalau naik keta ngan ko long distance (figuratively: I always got lost with you)." And then I told her of what Diana once said, "There's always an adventure whenever I'm in the car with you (something like that)." I know it's my fault because the time that's wasted was of mine and others. But come on, admit it, it's when we're lost that we bond either through laughter, cries, screams, or just by seeing new sights.

I know that's what happened in the car today :)

Ok don't laugh...

I actually cried listening to Britney's new songs. ...OK I may be exaggerating. I didn't exactly weep, but tears did come down my cheeks. I'm OBVIOUSLY going to buy her album this week (which came out last Tuesday on her birthday). I was just doing a bit 'pre-shopping' as I went through her songs online. And three songs caught my attention: 1. My Baby, 2. Out From Under and 3. Blur.

The first one is obviously about her sons. The second one is actually a cover and I found the original version yet I like Britney's more. It's about letting go of her past and you can really hear the regret in her voice and her wish in trying to make a new life. And the last one really touched me. It's about her state of...being high. Of not knowing where you are but wanting to get home. She's really turning a new leaf after all that had happened last year :')
