bad things come in threes
after the driving lesson this morning, i felt lousy. lao instructor was upset with me again. this time, it's about backing out to a corner or reverse to a corner. she could not explain what she wants me to do and i was at a loss. to make matters worse, i kept making mistakes and she blew her top.

i'm not sure whether i was supposed to calm her down or should she calm herself down. she is a instructor and i am sure she has experienced this all the time so why get so upset. at least, she is being paid to do her job. while i have to pay to suffer. i would rather be in her position.

i was preparing lunch when i burnt the stir fry pork cubes. i have to rinse the frying pan twice to get rid of burnt stains. i know i should be more careful and i will do better in cooking.

just when i thought about this, i placed frozen crabcakes in the mircowave oven for five minutes. when it was about time to remove the cooked crabcakes, i realised that the crabcakes are burnt.

bad things come in threes alright. i should be angry or annoyed with myself for being so careless and stupid but amazingly i was not.

i will do better in driving and cooking.
