what a day...

today i can safely say that i has been a day full of jinxes for me....*sigh*.

it started with the trip to the dentist. ok, i know dentist's visits are not something all of us looking forward to, but cannot help la sebab i need to take care of the gigi esp now...my gums have started to bleed everytime i brush my gigi, which i've made to understand is normal for preggies.

nasib baik no tooth decay (which is normal for preggies too) or gigi berlubang lagi...so kali ni kena scaling jer...jer tu pun sakit tahap dewa ok? esp bila kena bersihkan kat area dgn gums...i was yoga breathing je throught the whole ordeal! itupun ada kala tak tahan and berkerut muka, pipi semua....darah tu, takyah cakaplah kan?

i was mega-relieved when dr dah start polish the gigi and by the time i keluar the dentist, i can rasa like the whole mulut sakit macam bila you main dgn ulser mulut. pedih but twistedly sedap and sakit.

after lunch, i terus tunggu cab nak balik rumah ke B.A...it has been such a long time since i naik cab to go anywhere. even nak ke dentist pun my bro yg hantar sebelum dia kena pergi bengkel etc... why naik cab when i have a car? my bro took my car since he just got into an accident the nite before (nasib baik keta je teruk, not him!).

tunggulah cab, agak lama gak sebab the bus stand is tepi highway and semua org as usuallah bawa laju and takkan nak duduk kat lane paling dalam kan? so sambil menunggu langit pun dah gelap...risau gak sebab i tak bawa payung ke apa...plus kl dah lama tak hujan...

in a way, luck was at my side when a taxi membuat stunt dr lane tengah terus ke the bus stop, close behind hin the was a bmw...dia berhenti dekat i and i teruslah naik...he was a pleasant driver, very the alim...why i say alim?

because sepanjang dia nak hantar i dari taman melawati to BA, dia dok ceritalah pasal remaja zaman sekarang with their bad attitude and PDA melampau sini sana tanpa pikir orang lain, and persiapan utk puasa...

although what he said meant well, but i couldn't help and terpikir : "does he think i'm a remaja yang pregnant tanpa kahwin"...*sigh. really.

but i appreciated his kindness esp when he picked me up and buat lagak ngeri tu sebab dia tgk hari dah nak hujan and i looked desperate to go back...

sampai-sampai rumah, satu lawak pun berlaku. i don't have the housekeys! my parents were away for a trip to utara and will only sampai malam, and my bro has my keys! (the housekey was with the car key).

sitting at a bench bawah porch, with a pile of letters i took from the mailbox, i was marah and frustrated...and then hujan pun turun dengan lebat sekali. i pun menagis sekali dgn hujan tu...

as i was sorting the letters, i tgklah ada surat from lhdn for me....memula ingatkan my cek dah dapat coz they owe me about rm390 from taxes yang terbayar lebih. jangkaan i salah sama sekali! instead, they want me to pay rm133 for cukai! i was flabergasted, i was in disgust. i was blardy mad.

here i am, sitting alone outside my house and tgh hujan lebat and dapat surat lhdn suruh bayar to them! what made me angry was the fact when i filled my borang cukai, ada staff lhdn yang tolong i! so, kalau i salah isi, maknanya staff lhdn tu pun tak reti nak isi borang cukai lah kan?

and you know what, dalam surat tu, it stated : sekiranya tuan tidak berpuas hati dengan taksiran ini, tuan boleh merayu terhadapnya dal;am borang yang ditetapkan dalam had tempoh yang dinyatakan di muka surat sebelah. walaubagaimanapun, cukai kena dibayar itu mesti dibayar sepenuhnya.

what the heck??? dahlah nak kena isi borang, lepas tu kena bayar lagi and then, i think my borang tu akan hilang dalam the stupid birokrasi thingy for God knows how long...ntah-ntah until i isi next year's borang pun tak dapat lagi...

ok, maybe i isi salah aritu but then, it also meant the kakitangan are not berpengetahuan no?

i'm going to lhdn office and suruh diaorg kira balik my cukai. kalau i salah, oklah meant i salah and i will pay whatever that needs to bayar. tapi kalau i betul, mmg nak je i sekolahkan lhdn balik. next friday lah kot baru pergi since i'll be on leave that day.

since i dah sensorang, fitri suruh i call a cab to go to my in-laws. call one cab company, tunggu for about 20 mins to half an hour, then baru diaorang call kata "no cab". then call lagi satu company, luckily ada tapi have to wait another berapa minit ntah before sampai...

and being pregnant, suddenly i nak ke loo tapi takkan nak membuang kat tengah-tengah padang and kena basah sebab hujan kan?? tahan je lah.....which can be really hard ok?

bila dah on the way ke taman tar, my bro called and tanya where i was...apparently dia dah habis check his car and about to leave the bengkel to go home...*sigh*

sampai je taman tar, takde kereta depan rumah and my heart stopped for a while. "are they out too?". nasib baik ada orang..! lega gila...

i was rushing coz i needed to hantar a few questions to this one pr for an email interview. and i taknak dia call i to remind me lagi..(dah banyak kali call, tapi i asyik lupa + busy). dah settle everything, after about 2 hours di taman tar, my bro finally sampai and we went home...

without anymore bad lucks...oh what a day!
