A Car With No Gas Or No battery... Or Both?









A few days ago I went to Putrajaya to do the rock-climbing. The place is awesome due to it's safety environment and it's challenging yet efficient challenges it provides to others because of the stages of difficulty available for both amateurs and experts to try. The crashmates provided to cushion the fall were very thick and wide! I went there and I was surprised to see this fact because it seems like a very suitable playground for us who do Parkour to practice there. However, due to our coolness, we decided not to misuse the main purpose of the place. Obviously, it would be irritating for others to see many other people crashing at their place doing different things which are obviously not meant to be done over there. Even I myself would be irritated to see others misusing the place which is originally meant for other things. Therefore, we mostly do the rock-climbing... and sometimes do some flips in between to balance things out. XD


HOWEVER... This post will be entirely about the title has been stated above. Previously I wanted to elaborate about the experience I had regarding the rock-climbing, but something more interesting occurred on the way back... Well, the story goes like this...

We were tired... Our fingers were already weak due to it's over-usage in one day doing rock-climbing. We went back using Siddiq's car. The same car we use to get there in the first place. On the way back, we were laughing as we were examining the pictures we took during that day itself because of the poser-like pictures it appeared to be. Suddenly, Siddiq's car's engine suddenly stopped working. We were like "Holyshit", I don't want to push this car!! So we slowed down the car a bit while shifting the direction of the car towards the left side of the road in order to make it easier for others to go pass us. We even turned on the hazard light. I forgot to mention that the car's engine failed us when we were waiting for the traffic light to go green. The car behind us was stupid, he waited like a moron and did not overtook us. I was like "Woot!? Don't you even notice the hazard light!? What's the motive of the hazard light if others could not comprehend that the car is having a problem!?". The car behind us still persist on waiting for us. Even my friend had to open the window and wave as a signal to the car to move on.

Siddiq turned of the engine and tried to start the engine again. After a few tries he managed to do so. We were like "Pheewh~! Lucky~!". But then after we drove away from there, the car's engine failed us again. Again we did the same method to restart the engine. This situation goes for about another 3 times until finally the engine failed us totally. Siddiq then said "I think it's because the car ran out of gas...".. I was like... WTF!? Why didn't you refill the car's fuel then you over-confident fool~! Then he argued back by saying "It's not my fault~! The car's indication for the fuel thingy didn't blink at all! How was I supposed to know the car was about to run out of fuel~ U fool~". Yes, very high ego he have.

Well, obviously that was the most logical explanation why the car stopped. Because the lights were still available, the water was enough, and the car was not over-heated. Then we decided to push the car towards off the road to make it easier for others to pass us by. At first I was the one who managed the wheel while Acap and Siddiq was pushing the car. At first they pushed like morons and still the car did not budge... I then said to myself "Weaklings~" as I hear Acap complaining "WTF!? Why is the car so heavy!?. I then noticed that I forgot to release the hand-brake. Weee~! So I released the handbrake. They continued their struggle to push the car... They were doing it soooooo sloooooooow!! I got pissed and then I said "Switch lah! So lazy la acap, u control the wheel". Obviously it was because of Acap because his hands were in the weakest condition compared to us all due to the rock-climb thingy. Siddiq was like "I am okay, its just that Acap is already too weak~". So we then pushed the car... It did not even budge at ALL!! We then complained "WTF! Acap! Release the handbrake!". He then released the handbrake. But pressed the brake instead. This goes on numeral times because of the trouble we had communicating with each other, lol. Acap was like "Woot!? You guys told me to press the break, I press la!". Until finally we reached an understanding with each other and managed to push the car successfully.

After we pushed the car. We were clueless as we did not know what to do. Luckily the location we were currently at was near Abudi's house, so we tried to call for his assistance via the phone. He was in UIA PJ, so we thought we could have his brother assisting us instead. We then knew that his brother was on his way back from Serdang, so we had to wait there until his return. We were bored like hell. It was hot and boring. We played around with the camera and then came out with the idea to take pictures with it! Here are some of the pictures we took to express how bored we were! XD!a

As you can see, that was how boring it was. After that we decided to walk to the gas station ourselves to kill time. We left the car behind with the hazard light on so that others could easily see the car and avoid it. Abudi told us via the phone "It is freakin' FAR!! Its not worth it!!!". At first we pondered to ourselves about it, but then the boredom won. So we went there walking in darkness. It was SOOOOO FAAAARRR!! But when we walked, we didn't actually notice how far it was until we finally take a look at how far it actually was again. We walked to the gas station. It was far I tell you... As we were walking there, we noticed how dark it actually was and feared that the cars went through there might actually hit us because that area was known for how crazy people actually drive their car. So we walked and walked and walked... Suddenly we heard dogs were barking and were running towards us. At first we were alarmed but then we noticed they were locked behind a gate, so they could not get out. We tried to ignore those two dogs barking their lungs out. But we then noticed that we could not properly see the fences... So we increased our moving pace just in case the dogs could actually find their way and slip through the fences and bite us. However, I was actually prepared to kick them as self-defense, lol.

We then finally saw the gas station from afar! Wooohooo~! At last! We then continued walking... Then suddenly, Abudi's brother approached us from behind. He was in the car in the passenger's seat with his sister who was driving the car. All that walking for nothing, what a waste of energy, but at least it killed the boredom! So we entered the car and went to the gas station. The car we used was awesome, there were like multiple mini-fans inside the car. I just wanted to mention that even though it was unnecessary, heheh. Abudi's brother provided us the bottle to insert the fuel. At first we thought that RM5 was enough to fill it full. But then it turned out that RM5 only filled a quarter of it... Hoho... So we went back to the car. We filled the gas inside the car, showed our gratitude to Abudi's brother and sister. We wanted to give the bottle back to them but they told us to keep it instead, so nice. Then we went inside the car! We wanted to start the engine, FAILED.... Yes! FAILED!! Awesooome!! Again we tried to think why such thing occur. Siddiq came out with the solution that we need more fuel, RM5 was not enough. However, I told him that it was actually enough.. Until finally, we noticed that the light of the car was dying out... Yes... Due to repeated attempt of trying to start the engine and leaving the car behind with the hazard light on, the car ran out of battery... Nice...

Abudi's brother called siddiq and asked whether the car was fine or was still in the same condition? Siddiq replied it was still in the same condition. Not long after that, Amir came to the scene! Yay! But he is not the savior, he is more like a spectator... Then suddenly Abudi's father came to save the day! He brought the "jumper" to save the day~! However, he was awesomely STRICT! I was practically scared of his behavior, so "garang". At first he told Abudi's brother to open the hood of the car, but it appeared that Abudi's brother had some problem doing so because he does not know how to do so. Then Abudi's father scold him and said "Bukak la depan tu, xreti ke nak bukak hood kerete ke? Tarik je la bwh tu" something like that la but with a "garang-like" voice. Then came the "jumper-device" thingy. He told Siddiq to flash the torchlight properly and told Amir to do the job quickly, hahaha, it was funny seeing such situation from afar, wee~! Then it was complete! Abudi's brother closed the hood of the car and then the side mirror of the car suddenly fell off and went into the drain. Abudi's father then said "Terima Kasih!" to his son. Lol, then his son had to pick it up from the drain. He was very "garang-like" to an extent that I decided not to thank him personally in order to avoid him getting more angrier, lol.

Then the car functioned normally!! Yay!! To put it simply! Siddiq was OVER-CONFIDENT~! Because of him being very confident that the car has enough fuel, the car failed us... This gave me and Acap the trouble of going through things that we did not expect to encounter. We practically had to wait in darkness in sweat. Not only that, Siddiq's action also gave trouble to Abudi's brother and sister as they had to take us to the nearest gas station in the middle of the night. Also, because the car ran out of fuel, we had to repeatedly try to restart the engine and leave the car with the hazard light on to an extent that it ran out of battery. This basically gave trouble to Abudi's father due to the fact that he had to come to scene and help out. Not to mention, Amir was also troubled with although he was not much of a help to begin with.

In the end, I shall summarize this in Malay... Siddiq berjaya menyusahkan kawan-kawan, anak orang, adik orang, abang orang, kakak orang, dan juga bapak orang.... Just because he didn't refill the car's fuel earlier. Yay! So cool~!
