How would you react if you have to do something that you've never done before? Panic? Scared? Or just do it! For me, if it's something very new, if I have a choice, I'll try to avoid doing it, but if I am left with no choice, then...redah jerrrr. Last Monday morning, after sending Syahmi to school, I realise that the front left tyre was lack of air. But I just dismiss the thought, hoping at the same time, it is that way all the time. But towards evening, it didn't look too good. I sms-ed hubby and he told me to drive to the tyre shop nearby and ask them to check. Tried giving as many 'reasonable' reasons to avoid carrying out that 'job' but to no avail. Hubby said, if I didn't fix the tyre soon, then the condition can be worsen. Oh oh.. I wouldn't like that, definately. So yeah, took the car keys, start the engine and off I go. It took less than 10 minutes and my tyre's fixed. All I have to pay is just RM5.00! Not worth all my tensions! Hahaha...
Moral of the story : Perkara kecik jangan diperbesar-besarkan! Belum cuba buat belum tahu susah senangnya!
