Calmness and Frenzy

on Tuesday, May 17, 2011
So guess what i resigned from my job... :) Yayyy!!... Got a new one will join on Thursday... Kinda excited i think... Lets see kya hota hai....

Last week was pretty hectic... A friend who lives in Sweden these days was in town so had one of those all party week.. Plus since i quit the old job so my week was free... The week kinda started on a Saturday as me and some of my friends picked him from the airport around 4 Am at night... We had been out roaming the streets before that since we thought it was better than staying and waiting for him at home.. After picking him up we searched for a nice place for breakfast... Ended up at karachi company... After alot of gup shup over breakfast went home around 6.. Slept till 2 PM... Made a plan to go to Lahore... Left home at 4 PM in our first car (later you will understand why its called the first car).... Near the motorway toll plaza saw the car heat up indicator... Turned towards home from the toll plaza.. The car really got heat up and after using a lot water bottles and stopping by the side of the road reached home...

Changed cars went on our way again by 5 PM... This time managed to cross the toll plaza.. Even the Chakri service area where we stocked up for the journey ahead.... after like 10 minutes from chakri this car also got heat up... Stopped the car again poured some water into the radiator... On our way again thn after 5 minutes the engine heat up light came on again... Out of water this time... Asked for water from the cars passing by which was quite a scene.. The wagon walas and the truck walas and the suziki daba walas i have realized now are the most helpful in these cases.. One truck driver even stopped and tried to fix the car but by then the damage was almost done.. The engines gas kit was blown... Called the motorway guys.. They came after like half an hour or so.. They said we had like 2 choices either to wait for the toe truck which could take upto 2 hours or we try to get our car slowly to balkasar ( 25 KM away) where we would have some mechanics to fix the car... Tried to make it there by driving very slowly and using alot of water bottles which we had gotten from various people... But the car was in a pretty bad condition so decided to stop the car and call the motorway police again.. They came by and suggested us to stop a truck which can toe us to balkasar ... So finally an oil tanker was stopped which toed us to balkasar with our car literally inches away from the back of it... Finally reached balkasar at around 10 PM.... Yes it took us that long... :P

Finally found a mechanic there which told us that it would take us 3 to 4 hours and we would be free by 3am to 4am... So parked our car there went to a local truck driver hotel for dinner... Which was really good... Had alot of fun over what has happened to us... After dinner and alot of cups of tea went back to the mechanics around 1am and he was still opening the car up... He seemed to have opened a VTEC engine for the first time in his life... :P Anways long story short... After alot of discussion, Gup shup and we playing practical jokes upon each other the car still hadn't been fixed by 5 Am... So we hired our sweden wala friend a car to lahore as he really had to be in lahore in the morning... Me and 2 of my friends stayed with the car.. Went for breakfast from the same hotel we had dinner at 6 am..... Came back around 7am... The car was finally fixed and ready to go by 8 am and we reached our beds by 10 am as we entered isloo at the time of rush hour....

LOL... and this was only the start of the week... :)

To be continued for the rest of the week i guess....

Even after having such a bad car-day you all weren't much bothered by it and kept enjoying which is pretty good. I guess good company can make even a bad time seem fun. Waiting for the update :)
