i almost lost my best friend on monday.

a horrific car accident happened in kuching on monday just past. 6 people in a toyota. 1 dead, 1 severely concussed, 2 severely injured with broken limbs and internal bleeding. KA and her man got pretty bad bumps on their heads, but they're relatively ok.

still in a bit of a shock when i think about it. as i was reading her email today, my throat caught and i couldn't speak for awhile. such a close, close shave... it could have been any of them in that fatal front seat, or any of the other positions which were pretty bad as well. such a close, close shave with fate... and death.

i shall spare the gory details here, but when i try to see the scene from her eyes, from the words she has put through to me - my mind freezes over in horror.

thank god you're ok, dude. you cannot imagine how fuckin' glad i am.

don't forget you have to come back and watch sin city with me, mmmkay? you must come back in one piece, mmmkay? we're gonna do the runway blading thingy again when you're done travelling, mmmkay?

so much sorrow for the singaporean man who was driving, the man who lost his wife. i don't know this man, but my heart weeps for him... for no one deserves to have a loved one depart like that.

life can be so fragile...

Awfully glad your friend is alright. Hope she's coping fine.

Driving's the most dangerous thing on earth. I think one is more likely to die from a car accident than to get bitten by a venomous spider.

she had nausea for a day, and now feels ok. her man's eye is red and they both have huge bumps on their heads... but they're both quite ok. i hope there'll be no further complications...

thanks girl. :)

dangerous drivers = murderers.

dangerous drivers = murderers.

I agree. And "if you drink and drive, you're a bloody idiot."
JVdrag0nette on October 7th, 2005 05:45 pm (UTC)
for sure!

a bloody idiot who will spill the blood of the innocent!

i don't know details... but i won't be surprised if the driver of the van who hit them was.

driver of the vehicle that got hit was sober for sure.

sorry to hear that...
JVdrag0nette on October 7th, 2005 06:02 pm (UTC)
thank you. :)

it's really scary... but i'm really more glad than anything else that she's ok.

awww - bad news for some, but good news that angels were there to look after your mate ;o)

never have i felt such terror and relief all at once.
The Citygentcitygent on October 8th, 2005 04:18 pm (UTC)
rollercoaster moments :o/
JVdrag0nette on October 8th, 2005 06:53 pm (UTC)
yeh... :/

relief more than terror though, that's for sure. :)

It's a relief to hear she's ok although it's sad about the others who weren't so lucky.

i often tell myself that everything happens for a reason.

during these times, we are reminded of how fragile life is...

JVdrag0nette on October 7th, 2005 05:48 pm (UTC)
very sobering indeed.

it could have been anyone, anytime. and i start to think of everything i wanted to say or do before i depart - and there's just too many...

we'd thot sim was at fault but an eyewitness later came and told us that the van that hit us was behind a car who'd slowed down to let us pass - the van didnt see us when he overtook the car at the junction. which goes to prove that cars dont kill people. careless people do.

seems like the main errant activity on the roads of malaysia is - overtaking. :s
