The Wheels of Fate

Yesterday was quite a day. I promised my special lady that I would meet her at KL Sentral for berbuka puasa at Subway. Of course, no one could anticipate what was going to happen next. On the way back from school, our car got punctured (by natural causes, I presume) and so we spend quite some time to get that tire changed. The spare tire, while not totally out of comission, wasn't fully functional either. It had too little air. A note to all you drivers out there. Always, always remember to check you spare tire often. You'll never know when you need it. So then, there was a need to stop at the gas station to fill some air. Oh, it was around this time that I realized I totally forgot about Asar prayer. Bummer...

With the tire problem out of the way, the driver (Ali G) left me somewhere close to Universiti Station cause I needed to get on an LRT to get to Sentral. I got on the thing right in the nick of time. If I had arrived at the station even a second later, then I would definitely have missed it. So I got to Sentral at about 6.40. Still some time left for me to perform my prayer. I saw Soya first and then headed to the surau. Lo and behold, my friend from my school days was standing there in front of me. I haven't met her for a few years and KL Sentral would probably the place which I least expected to see her. Wow, pleasant suprises are actually...well..pleasant.

Anyway, the point I'm trying to make here is that how each sequence of event leads to another. If the tire didn't get punctured, if we hadn't need to fill in the spare tire with air, if I could't get on that LRT, and if I performed my prayer at school, I probably wouldn't have seen my friend there. Now I know why they call it the 'wheels of fate'.
