Murphy's Law

Yesterday was fine until the end of the day when Murphy decided to show up, and he showed up at the worst time possible!

I was at a customer's premises on Pulau Brani, quite an inaccessible place without a vehicle. Lo and behold, just after parking the car, the first symptoms showed up. The car cannot be locked with the remote key. After fiddling around for a while, tried starting the car and the car refused to start as well! @#$%!

Managed to somehow lock all the doors manually and went for the meeting (late of course). The meeting was pretty short and in a while I was back at the car again. Finally, decided to call it a day and come back the next day with a spare key. I suspect the car is not able to recognise/detect the current key that I have, meaning I cannot remotely lock/unlock the doors and also the immobiliser is active.

On the way home, Daniel Powter's "Bad Day" was playing in my head almost through the whole journey on the train.

Today I am going back with the spare key and pray that it works. If not, the plan will be to get security clearance for a tow truck. Freaking Super Sianz!

The spare key didn't work and it was a mini project by itself trying to rescue Bubbles off the island.

Bubbles is now resting in the hospital at Leng Kee. Hopefully she will get well enough to go home tomorrow ...

Bubbles had to be brainwashed at the hospital to regain her sanity. She is now safely back with me at the office, will take her for a nice dinner and bath later on.
