The idea of parking the car in the industrial area for the trip to Batu Caves during Thaipusam came from my sister who has parked many times before but not at night and certainly not when creepy characters are lurking in the dark alleys. Image source: Google Map
It is has been a long weekend for me. We managed to get some outstanding things done during the holidays but it comes at a price – body aching and foot pain. It gets worse once I reached the office, only to find urgent things to be done in the next 2 days and a meeting scheduled at night in KL.
Certainly, this is not the way to start the week.
