Bad News, Good News

=== backdated post : the weekend of 8/8/09 ===

The Bad...
Gu Gu (hubby's sister who's working in Singapore) was here for the weekend. She met with an accident on Saturday night on her way home. She was driving my car, no passengers. The car in front suddenly braked when they were crossing the traffic lights. But she didn't brake in time. So now the car's in the hospital (workshop) undergoing surgery (repair). :D

~ the damage ~

The Good...
No one was hurt in the accident. It doesn't matter how damaged the car is, most importantly no one's hurt.

And The Joyous...
We celebrated MIL's birthday the next day (actual day 11/8). Gu Gu made arrangements to join us in KL for the occasion. So this year, the celebration included all MIL's children (2 sons, 1 daughter and 2 DILs) and 3 grandchildren. We usually only have the full headcount during Chinese New Year. This was a very memorable birthday for her, with many mixed feelings over one weekend.

We went to Mid Valley for some shopping before having an early dinner at Amarin. As always, the food was great. As we're too full for anymore dessert (ice-cream cake), we decided to have the cake-cutting ceremony at home.

my car also kena banged before, behind.. took one month to get it properly done by toyota.. the only problem was the inconvenience, no transport is like... helpless! anyway, what to do.. accidents do really happen and the consolation is that no one is hurt and insurance is paying for the damages.. right?
