20 Minutes of A New Beginning

When I first took my Undang test, it was 2 years back, before I entered college...Due to some circumstances ( mum was afraid that I would drive and run away from college, perhaps), I did not even go to the amali class and so did not get my 'L' license..

2 years has passed...I still couldn't drive, let alone have license...I pitied the 2 men in my life that got to be my driver wherever I need to go...I couldn't stand it any longer..I was envy to see almost,if not all, of my friends could drive themselves anywhere....

Finally, I had the opportunity to be at Kuantan for 6 weeks...And God bless my parents that they asked me to take my license without me asking them first...=)

So, I got a teacher and registered for the 5 hours seminar....The first time I was in the seminar was boring and the second time was actually torturous...Passed my second Undang test within a week and I was eager to go for my amali session....

For 6 long hours, all of us stood outside, under the scrothing bright sun, to listen about different car parts and its functions....I don't really think that any of us could concentrate to what our teacher was actually saying as we were all sweating like a pig and counting the time to end our session....

After everyting was done, my teacher asked his friend ( another car instructor) to send me home...The first 10 minutes of the journey, he told me almost all my attitude based on what he read on my face...I can't help it but agree what he said was actually true...

So, when I told him, I have not drive even once in my life, he stopped his car by the roadside and asked me to take over....At first, I was practically begging him not to let me drive as I do not wish to murder an innocent person or get myself killed....

But he asked me to relax and said all I need is to obey his instructions....That's when the adrenaline kicks in...I took over his place and obeyed all his instructions...He was suprised that I can actually change gear without any problem...

He only needs to guide me on handling the steering wheel and asked me to slow down when I drove above 80km/hour...

When I reached at the front of my house, I was so glad that noone was killed....I can actually drive, it's quite unbelievable actually....I'm so proud of myself and can't wait for my formal and legal lessons to begin....=D

And that was the 20 minutes of a new beginning and chapter in my life...
