lucky us

we came back to KL on sat noon. then our car's air condition decided to stop working after we have sent off hubs' auntie back to setapak. hubs along with his cousin bro, went around setapak to find mechanics. he found two shops, and both telling him that the car's air compressor has died on us. siao liao. cialat. and both the shops quoted between rm900 to rm1200 to change a new compressor. when hubs told me, i was having cold sweat. sigh. we decided to get 3rd opinion. we drove home, without the air cond & sweat like nobody's biz.

we couldn't do anything as the next day was a Sunday. i was asking around for mechanic recommendations which frens can trust. as i know nowadays, they will "cut throat" whenever possible. sigh. my prayers were heard when cookingmomster called me up saying her hubby wants to speak to my hubs. then it is decided that they will pay a visit to a mechanic fren of sue2 on monday, which is today. so we still gotta wait, didn't want to drive out as the car has no air cond. torturing man.

then i msn my bro in law, asking if he is up for lunch & a movie. one hour later, he popped by to pick us all up & we proceed to IOI mall to have lunch & then watched Percy Jackson & the Olympians - The Lighting Thief. we enjoyed the show, and i simply love the history of the Greek Gods & their beautiful names. it fascinates me. hehe! as for dinner, we had another couple frens who came over & picked us up & we head to oldtown. i dunno if any of your kids are having the same antics as my lil missy. recently, she refuses to eat her food. lunch or dinner, she will only takes a little & refused the rest. i tried forcing, coaxing, bribing & none of them will work! im at my wits' end. why won't she finishes her food, she used to eat well. sigh.

anyway, monday came. hubs together with sue2's hubs, Suki went to look for their mechanic fren. and here i was at work praying & mumbling to myself, the air cond compressor better not be dead, or i will be! dang dang dang! then good news came about! hubs SMSed me, told me the mechanic found something else was faulty & it only cost rm400 to have it replaced & fixed. the car's air cond compressor is still in good working condition! THANK YOU GOD! and more importantly, THANK YOOOOOOOOOU COOKINGMOMSTER & SUKI. if it's not for you guys, we couldn't have solve this problem soonest possible.

Oh..very lucky indeed. *phew* The movie you went sounds interesting. About lil missy's change in appetite, maybe it's due to her recent recovery from fever coz Gwen's appetite isn't good as well.
