Unusual Sights

Today, I saw 2 things that you definitely DON'T see every day.

The first occurred while I was driving to church this morning. We weren't moving as the traffic lights were still red way in front. As we begun to move, a few cars in front of us, I kid you not, suddenly came a small herd of stampeding juvenile COWS (they looked rather young and small) out of nowhere from a junction! The beasts literally stormed across the road. Most of 'em managed very clumsily to avoid the on-coming vehicles left and right. Sadly, one of them slammed forcefully head-on onto the left side of an unlucky Kembara, just a couple of cars ahead of us. The impact shifted it sideways and the front windshield was almost smashed. I could see from behind that it was badly cracked, and the front left side of the car was badly dented. I don't know who were most shocked at the time. The people watching it happen, the mother and daughter inside the Kembara, or the cows that came rushing out suddenly into a very busy road. Oh, and behind the cows was either small horse or pony (are they the same thing?), following suit in the stampede, which was more peculiar. Seriously, this was really dangerous. If a small cow could do that to a car, imagine how gruesome it would be if it was someone on a motorcycle. Mum was both shocked and in awe by what we saw, but she didn't notice the cow slamming into the car, coz she was busy counting the number of cows...WTH -_-"

After church, we head for lunch at some kopitiam in Island Glades. Before we left, I had to pee and I think the uncle that went in to the male toilet needed to take a crap. Took damn long leh. So, I had to go into the ladies, which was right beside it. It could only occupy one anyways, so I wasn't risking any sudden screams from the opposite sex. When I stood over the squatting toilet, I was met with a strong gush of wind from above. I looked up and LO AND BEHOLD, there was a mounted electric fan, strongly blowing directly at anyone wanting to use the toilet. And this was in a single person toilet! This is just as peculiar as the air-cond in the gents @ Coffee Island in Penang, which blew cold air to the patrons in the face while they relieved themselves at the urinals. Peeing and pooping very hot hor?

Can you imagine the damage if it was an adult cow? The fans are there to keep the toilet floor dry!

Same with Dimsum Food Restaurant at Macalister. Air-conditioned toilet despite it's a non-ac eatery.

William: Yes, exactly! I think an adult cow would be almost twice the size and might have even tipped over the car. So freakin' dangerous!

Need to allocate a fan in each toilet meh. Waste money leh.

Chris: Oh izzit? Haven't been there yet. It's still weird tho...
