Another Disaster

While driving back from office on Monday evening, the traffic was moving smoothly and I used the Smart Tunnel to avoid the jam along Jln Sungai Besi/Seremban Highway. It's very convenient to me as the exit will be near the ramp that links with the Federal Highway, on the way to Taman Danau Desa.

The moment I turned into my garden area and stopped at the traffic light, I could hear some loud hissing sound. What's that??!!??!!?

Next thing, I noticed that the temperature shot way past the midway dot. I knew I was in trouble this time. Off the aircond and pulled the car through and straight to the workshop just next to my condo.

Goodness, one of the main hose connecting the radiator/engine has busted. I could see water at almost every part of the bonnet area as I guessed the hissing sound was the sound of water gushing out of the hose. Walked back home (less than 5 mins walk) as the owner said he would get it done first thing tomorrow morning.

Really thank God that it only happened when I arrived in my garden area. Imagine if it happened in the Smart Tunnel. On the other hand, I would be able to test the Smart Tunnel's emergency response team if my car broke down inside there......hehehe

I live in Setapak and work in Cyberjaya. It's not as far as you think. :)

NOT.

If there was a flood, I think it would be the cables that I'd be more worried about. They don't look completely waterproof.

Mass electrocution is not a very pleasant thought.
