Drama - Being resolved

I met the woman who hit and run, as agreed, this afternoon and we went to the workshop to get a quote. She must have been really drunk last night, because she asked me which car she hit... :P Terrible. It was fortunate that she didn't knock a kid or someone taking an evening walk.

But the good thing is that she apologized and will be paying for the damages. And guess what? She knows the mechanic that I brought the car to for the paint job... Hmm... I reckon she must have had her car done there several times.

What a hassle - had to rush back from a seminar in town and had to take half day emergency leave. Anyways, I'm just glad that it'll be over soon.

A drunk woman hit my car!

You would not believe it but a drunk woman driving without headlamps ran into my car tonight!!! There was such a loud bang! And she had the cheek to run off in her car... without even stopping to see the damage she had done!!! I chased her down the road, honking all the way and managed to stop her.... My heart was racing and as I approached her car, there were 3 other blokes who were also charging towards her... she had apparently also almost hit their car.

The woman, a 51 year old, was drunk. My bro said he could smell alchohol on her breath. She was slurring and refused to get out of the car... kept saying she didn't hit anyone. I checked her car bumper and it had red paint on it... and she still refused to get out of the car. Fortunately one of the guys whose car she almost hit had a camera phone (I really should get one!), and later my bro brought my camera and took some photos. Even then, she kept refusing to get out of the car. Fortunately there was this man, who claimed that he knows her, apparently lives on the same road. He said he would talk to her and managed to get her to promise to pay for the damage.

We agreed to meet up tomorrow to take my car to the mechanic to get a quote. I really hope she shows up as agreed and pays without any hassle. Never know what a drunk woman may or may not remember. I've taken down her Name, IC and phone number.. but as you know, she can always refuse to take my calls or change her number. In a moment of haste, I forgot to ask for her IC... I had asked her where she lives, but she said it didn't matter. O dear.... I'm so inexperienced. Should have insisted that she showed me her IC. Anyway, at least I know her number's correct. We'll see what happens tomorrow..... what a way to end the weekend.

I can't believe someone so old can behave so poorly, with so little integrity. Can't believe she tried to hit and run!!! Sigh, my poor little car.

Will post of photos of my car later... when this whole episode is over.

Do these things...

Finally, pumpkin, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy— pumpkin, think about such things.

(Paraphrased from Phil 4:8)

Counting down to Melb

Woke up this morning and realised that it's only a month till my Melb ski trip! Can't wait.. yay! Wish M was coming along though...

Idealistic people make me sick

"We only live life once.... so go do what you need to do with it"

Well, not all of us have the luxury of doing what we want to do and can disregard what others' think ...

(Yikes, I have become a cynic!)

Hmm, truth be told, I of all people have nothing to complain about. :P

I am content. I am blessed. I am loved. Thank you Father for your grace in my life, and for those special people around me that make it all worthwhile.

The day England lost...

I have to write a 'lil somthing about the World Cup.... ok, admitedly I have not watched every single match, hmm, actually not even half of all the matches! But hey, this happens only once in 4 years and so it IS worth a blog. Anyway, England's out! Go, Portugal!!! Ha ha (no apologies to all y'all England fans out there. :P) M & I intended to wear our England jerseys - not that we're fans in a big way.... we're actually not fans at all.. hahaha, but since we have 'em jerseys, what the hey.

Anyhow, that did not workout. It was the evening of W & S's wedding, a lovely and touching one, I must add.... and with all the heat I was much too pooped to go out.

Lovely Wei Lyn...
