Accident 2X

When my hubby and I were travelling back to SP last Friday, it was rainy and the road was slippery. We normally travel back at night after dinner, so last Friday was no different. Hubby drove our Myvi 1.0 SR 1000cc manual :P back to SP every week, partly because the fuel consumption is lower. As such, our car will only travel comfortably around 90km/h, anything higher will put a strain on the engine.

While we were on the highway, hubby saw a motorcycle moving uncontrollably on the left of the road. The motorcycle is actually very much far towards the left so I didn't noticed it at all. Suddenly the motorcycle crashed to the floor and swirled rapidly to the right, dragging a trail of spark and stopping right in front of our moving car. Panic flashed across my mind and I was thinking that we sure going to hit the motorcycle.

Amazingly hubby took a quick look at the side mirror for cars at the back, hit the brake, and turn the steering wheel to the right and then left again. As you know the floor was wet and slippery, I felt that our car was moving like ice skating on the highway, and within a second we have avoided the motorcycle and everything was behind us. Both of us were shocked and didn't have time to recover until minutes later. We realised how lucky we are to avoid the accident.

Then why is Accident 2X? Well, ironically when we travel back to penang the same weekend, another accident happened. This time, a pack of goats came out from nowhere and crossed the road. This happens after toll plaza and we were travelling on a single lane road joining to the double lane highway. At first a few goats crossed the road and we slowed down our car but not stopping as there is another car at the back. After we saw the road's clear, we proceeded... suddenly another goat jumped out from the bushes and was immediately hit by our Myvi. Oh no...Anyway, this can't be helped. Do they need to put up a sign that goat crossing the highway?

After that hubby inspected the damages and luckily, no dents or scratches, just slight dislocate bumper(easily fixed using hands) and a missing bumper screw.

ai yo.... gotta drive carefully, especially on long journey. though going back to SP isn't far, but on the highway it's advisable to be more alert.
