When You’ve Hit Rock Bottom


Most of the times, the closest persons that you love suffer the most when you’ve hit rock bottom and you think you could not get your shit together.

This rock bottom shit, is likened to driving a car in a flash flood. You know how KL is famous for its flash flood due to bad irrigation in certain parts of the city. You think you have the SMART Tunnel to save you from all these trouble. 20 minutes of heavy rain and you can see cars floating at the road next to Semantan MRT station.

Anyways, I digress.

Back to this rock bottom shit.

My dad used to tell me that when you have to drive your car in a minor flash flood (you dont be idiot by driving through a flood), make sure you engage the gear to 2nd gear and for God’s sake, KEEP ON MOVING. If you still drive in D , the gear will shift and water will get into the engine.

I can tell you, that certain Mr Steven the mechanic will have a tough time telling you how many zero’s in the bill that you have to fork out.

Coming back to being at a rock bottom situation. This Ramadhan has been tough. Testy and all that. I have stopped counting how many times I had to pull myself together and just. move. on.

For, there are light at the end of the tunnel.

Although, it did not meant death either.

(Although it did came to my mind that this might be my last Ramadhan on this earth. Which might not be good. There’s a very spoilt husband who does not know how to pull the duvet together. There are 26 kitty cats that will annoy the shit out of him too)

So, just like driving a car through a minor flash flood.

Keep on moving.

We don’t want the water to get inside the engine.
