to kill a mocking bird

it was approximately 3.34pm. i had a late lunch and was heading back home, very sleepy indeed. it was drizzling in subang. but the rain had cleared when i reached shah alam. glad that i was just minutes away. dreaming of my comfy bed. just couldnt wait. i could see birds flying. happily. 50 meters more and BAMMM!!!! it happened. or was it more of a . DUKK!!!

i hit a bird. DUKK!! on my windscreen. did i? did i kill it? i continued driving while looking at my rear mirror. oh shit.. its still alive. but it's not flying. i could see the bird panting its last few breaths. oh dear. what do i do. i reversed my car.. and got out of the car. oh dear. its breathing. but its dying. oh dear. what do i do.

i went in to the car. drove into the driveway.. and screamed..... BIBIKKK!!! WASIAHHHH!!! Wasiah come running with a baby.. my brother's. Wasiah.... baby langgar burung!!! Jom jom pegi tengok!!! (Wasiah.. i hit a bird... come lets go and see). I took the baby from her. as we both ran to the bird. It wasnt breathing as fast as it did earlier. infact it didnt move very much. slowy Wasiah picked up the bird and brought it back home. a few minutes later.. it stopped breathing.. and by then nothing could have been done.and so we buried the bird.

minutes later... more birds came around.. chirping. probably paying respect and mourning the death of a beloved friend.

this may seem quite funny.. but it breaks my heart to see it die. how could i have killed the bird. who would have thought that i would kill a bird today. sigh. happy thoughts to think of for tomorrow.

Hey Juli,

its Kai from the Perhentian Islands.

Stay these days in the Cameron Highlands and am on my way to KL. Mid of next week i should be there.

But about the bird. Dont wanna smartass around. The only thing i can say is what i learned on my journey.

Trust your fate. Everything happens exactly like it should and there is no way of escaping or influencing it.

But there's still one thing to do if you want to make the best out of it: Think about what you could learn out of it for your future and the bird died with a purpose ;)

Looking forward seeing you guys in KL !!!
