Grocery shopping

Yesterday I did my groceries and after all the shopping I pushed my cart straight to the carpark and not look left and right to avoid the temptation of buying things that would be of no use whatsoever. Especially if there's a RM5 shop lurking around somewhere.

I reached my car and pressed the remote alarm button. Nothing. I tried again. Nada. Saya ketuk-ketuk lagi. Namun masih tidak berjaya. Saya garu dagu.

By this time the security guard who does his rounds on his bicycle arrived and asked me if everything was okay. I informed him of my predicament.

-Hmmm. Akka sudah salah kereta ka?
-Eh betul ni kereta saya. WUM.
-Akkaaa...ini kereta W-Yu-Yen. Tadda Yem.
-Oh. Saya sudah salah kereta la.
-Tadda apa nanti saya cari kereta Akka.

And he rode off and came back later with the exact location of my car. We went there together and he even helped me unload my groceries into the car boot.

-Terima kasih adik. Nasib baik adik ada. Boleh tolong akak.
-Sama-samaaaa. Sikit sajaaa. Sini pun worang selalu lupa mana parking kereta.

Ya la adik. Tapi ini Akka lain punya worang. Yen sama Yem pun tadda baca.
