I woke up and hurriedly took my bath. When everything was ready, I searched for my car keys but to no avail. I looked under the pillows, the mattress, inside the refrigerator, the dustbin, under the sofas while reciting Surah Ad-Dhuha, but yet to be found.
I sat on the sofa and called my housemate while turned on the Astro watching Sony Ericsson Tennis tournament highlight.
"Manap, ko nak kuar ada nampak kunci keta aku?"
"Takde plak. Keta ko ada tak?" (Afraid due to our broken house experience)
"Ada...hmm..mana la aku letak. Baru sehari tak letak kat penyangkut terus tak jumpa"
"Ada la tu"
Then I searched back my room, inside the wardrobe, under the files when suddenly a message came in.
"Hi Hasnul. I caught a cold fever. I'm on MC today. Please let Ayman knows". My team member texted me saying she won't be working today.
Then I texted Ayman, also my team member. "Ayman. May tak datang. MC. Aku lak tgh cari kunci keta dari tadi tak jumpa".
I kept on looking when I gave up at one point, leaning on the sofa and texted Ayman again.
"Man, tak jumpa la. Nak naik moto takut balik2 keta takde. Leh tak bawakkan laptop aku break semayang jumaat nanti. Aku nk work from home laptop kat opis"
It's already more than an hour of search. I sat on the sofa when I touched something inside my bag's front pocket. There it was. My keys. Fart!!! I've already scavenged the bag through all of the pockets but the front one was missed and there it was hiding quietly. Arghhh!!! I texted Ayman that I'm on the way to the office. But when I was about to leave the house and wanted to switch off the Astro, I couldn't find the remote!!!! Farttt!!! I swear I used it to change the channel just before I found my keys!!
Already late, I just switched off the main power and went to the office. While setting up my laptop, browsing through the emails, my housemate texted me.
"Tabu, aku cuti hari ni. Dok umah. Baru buat Medical check up. Mana remote Astro"
"Ada kat situ2. Tadi aku carik kunci keta aku"
"Patut sofa berterabur. Weh, tak jumpa pun. Ko letak mana?"
"Ada tu..usaha sikit. Paling kuat pun tercampak dalam bilik aku...errr..jap aku try tgok kot ada kat beg aku"
Well, I just thought that the last thing I knew was that the remote might be in my bag. But I honestly didn't think so. I strolled towards my cubicle because I was about to have my prayer break and was standing at my friend's desk. That's when I was burst out loud. A blue slim Astro remote was inside the side pocket of my bag. I think if it's alive, it might be smiling at me.
I called my housemate
"Tak jumpa la..nanti la aku carik. Nak tido. Penat"
"Mmg smpi kiamat tak jumpa"
"Aku bawak opis...ahahahahahahahahahahaaaaa!!!"
"Sial la koooo"
Haaahhh~~~~~~ Nice Friday. Yours?? Tak pasal2 kena balik gak nanti sebab malam ni semi final malaysia lawan china. Mampus aku kena belasah housemate takde remote. Sebenarnya my plan was to stay at the office and play tennis. Huhu..Demmm
