This is the day. The day of my JPJ test..wahahaha... i'd dreamed about this scary day for weeks. I really hoped that i can pass both tests. When we were in the car this morning.. on the way to the driving school, abah gave me some tips about how to control the car whn the car reached the hill. And i felt quite confident with my self. But it was all back then, before i entered the nhr driving school office.. As i entered the office (located at sec 19) to make my payment (RM 130!!!) i heard two aunts and some kakaks were sharing their stories together and their story was somehow scary! I cant help myself to listen to their experiences..wa....there goes my confidence.
We arrived at Seri Muda test center at about 9a.m and we had to queue in a veeeeeery long queue just to register. Looking at the enormous crowd, i prayed hard, hoping that I will not finish mine at 7 p.m. I was asked to wait at Pondok B until they called my name..There I met two new friends. Nashita, she's 18 and Rizwana, (wana) 19 :) they were really helpful in reducing my nervousness..haha..As we were waiting for our name to be called, we talked about everything.. university life, our feelings, ..and we also talked a lot about our favourite driving instructor Mr Tee. (it turns out that the three of us have the same pak cik garang as our instructor) wakakakaka.... it's good to know that there are actually many people suffering like me..having him as the instructor.
While we were all looking at a Kancil car which is struggling to make a move on the stupid hill, Nashita's number was called. The officer told loudly that the person whose number was called had to move to Pondok C to undergo the bukit-parking-three point turn test first. Then he also called my name. OMG! Suddenly i felt my stomach churned. I'm going to die! I'm scared weh. Luckily I had Nashita to speak with..huhu...While waiting for my turn, i looked at other people..and when i looked this time a lot of people failed the bukit test!!!!! Oh my God this is not happening!!!!!!!!!i shout in my own thoughts..weh giler glabah! Looking at people failing is a very good way to lower your confidence. Perfect..just perfect.
They called my name!! before i had the time to calm down my self.. and manage my stress. NO IT'S MY TURN NOW! Feeling helpless and unconfident, i walked forcingly towards the kancil which seemed new but unfortunately it's not as new as it looks. Wawawa... I opened the door, entered the car and drive the car up the stupid hill. The tyres successfully parked on the yellow line..thank God. I pull my handbreak and the JPJ officer asked me "awk nombor berapa?".
"39" i answered.
"alia nadhirah?" he asked again.
"ye betul" i answered him.
"ok, kalau dah bersedia angkat tangan" he said
i raised up my hand..and started doing what i supposed to do (i think..haha..) to move the car down.. actually i had already sensed that i'm going to fail this test...so...congratulation to my correct sense.. i really failed the bukit test. my failure was caused by my bengongness plus the stupid handbrake which refused to move...and not to mention i was really gubra and unconfident. When I thought that the car is ready to move forward, the car betrayed me by reversing backward (a little ok!) when I pulled the handbreak. "Ya Allah, memang fail la ni" And the ofcourse, the officer proudly told me.. "ok, tarik handbreak tu. kamu fail.. dah turun" aish...geram giler ni.
As I saw many people did the "bukit" test 2 times, i asked the officer. "Knape? Saye baru buat bukit sekali je"
Then the officer answered "Memang sekali je. Org yg buat 2 kali tu sebab mase kali pertama, tayar xnaik kat line 2. Kamu xboleh..tayar kamu dah ok. Dah turun cepat."
And I was like "huh?? aish.....geramnye!"
I signed the form..with kandas on it..cis! and asked the officer again whether i can proceed to do the on-the-road test and he said yes u may..
End of the story of my bukit test..and i went back frustratedly to the Pondok B and waited there for my name to be called.
5 minutes later and Nashita came. She passed the parking test. hoorray for her!! We waited for wana to come and decided to buy some drinks first as there were enormous crowd waiting to be called. Wana also failed at the Stupid Bukit..huhu..so I've a friend here...
While we were waiting endlessly under the pondok, we saw many incidents.. most of the incidents were very disturbing. Let me tell u some ok? The first incident involved a girl and her a stern looking jpj's woman officer. The officer never smile, even once..and her looks give people a warning " dont u ever try to mess up with me! ." I mean it! She's the only heartless person I ever saw in my life.. why?? ok, how can she heartlessly failed a girl just because the girl accidentally hit the divider? AND THE POOR GIRL JUST HAD DRIVEN ONLY ABOUT 50M FROM THE STARTING POINT!!! it was just a small mistake and the divider is very low. The poor girl was asked to stop right away and she was instructed to switch place with the officer..which means that the girl had made a mandatory mistake and failed her test. WHAT?? i cant accept it, if i was that girl.. we watched too many people failed in that woman's hands.The three of us gathered our energy and pray hard with all our might. "ya allah please, please, i DONT want to be tested by her." waaaa, i dont know how to describe my feelings.
At last my name was called at about 12 noon. Lucky for me i didn't get that woman officer. Instead, i got a handsome guy as my examiner. He is a stylo man. huhu.. As I entered I said "Assalamualaikum Encik" just like what farah had taught me with the aim to bodek. He asked "Name sape?"
Again, I told my name. And then did all the six items..u know what they r right? Huhu.. I noticed a bad sign.. he also never smile.."aish ade harapan cam nk kantoi je ni.." this time i refuse to believe my sense..gagaga..."alhamdulillah, xmati enjin..dh la cuak nih" as the car successfully moved i cant help to speak in my own world. The journey went quite well until i reached the second roundabout. Huhu.. the car engine went off as i let go the clutch to soon. huish..this seemed like a BIG TROUBLE MAN!! Stupid me. I was so lucky that the guy didnt ask me to park at the side and switch places. aaaahhh.. i was so relieved! i said "maaf ye Encik" n continue driving happily. Oh, there is still a long journey to go! I woke myself up and continue driving. I'd only passed thru 1/10 of the whole route and already i'd made a dangerous mistake. oh no..sigh..
Along the journey, the handsome but heartless officer kept sneering at me. Cis cis cis!!!!!!
Among his sentences "Gear kereta ni ade brape?"
I didnt get what he wanted to say and just answered "5, nape??"
haha..I was driving using the third gear at 40 km/h and was too scared to change the gear into four. Again, another mistake..lalala....
Alhamdulillah, I managed to reach the finishing point.. without switching places :)
My heart was beating like crazy, will i fail again???
ALHAMDULILLAH I PASSED YEAY. as i signed the evaluation form I cant help from glancing at the box..hehe..
here are the comments written on my form=
guna isyarat lampu/tangan=tindakan tidak sempurna
guna brek kaki dan tangan dengan betul=brek tangan lemah
mggunakan gear sesuai mengikut kelajuan=tidak lancar, gear 3 dan 4 tidak sesuai
above all i managed to get 17/20..and also 2 new friends :)
now i have to learn very hard to pass my bukit test.
