I've back to Malaysia

To: All my beloved friends

Yes, I've back to Malaysia.  I was back to my hometown around 2 weeks ago. Most of you might not know about it because I didn't tell many people. Sorry for not telling because I do not want to make it into a big issue. However, a lot of friends keep on asking when am I coming back to Malaysia and how was my life in New Zealand.  I keep on thinking what should I answer to those questions? Therefore, I think it's time to tell everyone. Initially I planned to come back in Jan 2012 as I shouted out loudly in Facebook. But, Why am I coming back earlier??? This is because.....

Yup, I met a car accident and my car overturned. Don't ask me why. I couldn't figure out the actual reason until today. No bluffing! That day I was driving on a highway. Suddenly the car shifted to left and I was shocked and turned it to the right. Again, the car shifted to left! And I tried to turn the steering to the right. At that moment, the car lost control and it started turning round and round and at the end, it overturned like what it showed in the photo. That was what I could recalled for the incident.

Some people keep on guessing the reason 'You must be speeding!' 'The road must be wet!' 'It must be something wrong with your tyres', 'You must be...' 'You must be...' and etc.

OK, let me tell you the actual situation. That day was a sunny day, no strong win and I was driving ONLY 90km/hr on a STRAIGHT highway. I didn't hit on something or try to escape from something at that time and the accident just happened like that. Even the police stepped in and investigated the accident, they couldn't get the root cause and the report from the mechanical side showed that no mechanical fault for my car.

The car was stopped turning after it hit on the fencing at the road side. At that time, my left hand was numbed and my forehead was bleeding. I was lucky enough because I was still awake and I was able to climb out from the car. The moment when I was able to get out from the car, there were a few people surrounding me and helped me to lie down as I felt dizzy.

Those who passed by stopped their cars and offered their helping hand. Some called the ambulance and most of them helped to pick up the stuffs that scattered around. The most touching part was some of them trying to push the car awat just because there was a jacket stucked under the car. They wanted to pick up the jacket for us. Huh??? Crazy right?? They were simply too helpful!!!!

We were lucky, we met a lady passed by and she offered to send us back to Blenheim the next day as she was travelling back to Blenheim too. The place of accident was around 1 hour 30 min driving distance away from the town we stayed.

Throughout the whole incident, NOBODY took photograph and NOBODY copied the plate number of the car. Yes,those are typical Malaysia culture when we saw accident happened. And we, as a Malaysian, of course still taking photos of the accident although we were the victim this round. 

We were so lucky because there were 2 local doctors passed by and they also offered their professional help by checking at our injuries. They even joke that all of us will be alright as long as we support ALL BLACK. Haha~ how enthusiasm they were towards their rugby team. Of course, we were sent to hospital by ambulance afterwards.

After we admitted to hospital and some checkup was done, we were requested to return to the hospital again in the next morning. Again, I have to say, we were really lucky. One of the doctor who passed by during our accident was the doctor worked in this hospital. He allowed us to overnight at his house and he even sent us back to hospital the next day. OMG, I can only say Kiwi are too helpful. This invaluable action should be spread all over the world and the world will be more lovely.

OK, back to the main point. During the accident, I hurt my neck and because of that, I've back to Malaysia so that my family can take care of me. I was admitted to hospital for almost 1 week here and I have undergone an operation. So now I am resting at home and I need to rest for another 2-3 months. So friends, I probably can come out yum cha with you only in next year.

Anyhow, I deeply felt that I am so lucky because I am still alive and I am able to write this blog. Sometimes, we will only felt life is invaluable when our life was at the edge of the safety line. Safety belt saved my life in this accident. Friends, remember to wear safety belt whenever you sit in a car, it plays a crucial role during the accident.

Some of you might be wondering, how could I keep on updating my blog since I was in hospital?

Who said I can't?
