So after watching "The Backup Plan" with JW, we got into my car and drove to town. Destination, Mayflower Hotel. Earlier, I downloaded a few pictures from Google Maps and saved it into my iPod.
Once we reached Dataran Merdeka, JW's dad called. We told him we were nearby. We then missed the turning into Masjid India so we had to make another round to get back on track.
Followed the map till we saw "Semua House". Checked the map and decided to turn right. It was the wrong turn. So, we had to drive a while before we got back to Dataran Merdeka.
Whose fault is it? Me. Should've read the map properly.
We did this another 2 times before JW got angry at her dad for constantly calling and shouting at her. She called her mum to explain. Actually, her dad has every right to be shouting. Obviously he was VERY WORRIED. She understood the logic, but still cried.
Whose fault? JW. She should have stayed calm.
Still could not find the place. So I called Dad. Told him where I was and where I want to go. Then, he gave me a few directions. Had to ask him to stop because I couldn't hear him talk.
Whose fault? JW. She could have spoke softer and again, stay calm.
After following dad's directions, I ended back at the SAME PLACE! WTF.
Whose fault? Me. Should have filled dad with more details.
Thanked dad and drove another 2 rounds. Still could not find it. I then suspected that the building we keep seeing but can't reach is "Mayflower" hotel. Couldn't reach it because of the One-Way Street.
So, we drove ANOTHER round before we managed to finally REACH the hotel. JW's dad was already down there waiting. Said goodbye to her before driving off.
What did I learn today?
- Don't rely TOO MUCH on Google Maps.
- Better to recce if possible.
- A little more of the KL roads.
Oh, and that's not all...
Back home, I told mum roughly what happened and why it happened. Then, talked a little bit about JW. Then, mum told me that dad told her, I was sending "Julie's Mum back".
Whose fault? DEFINITELY ME!
Didn't really make things clear with my family. It's about time to MEET THE PARENTS! :)
