Summary for today...

Headed out to lunch with Mom, sis, her 2 kids and maid at 3pm and went to Tesco's Penang outlet through Jelutong. Once you pass the post office, numerous banners hanging from the street lamps could be seen pointing the directions to Tesco. Followed, followed, followed and the banners now had several signboards to accompany it. =|

Parked near the entrence of the car park and walked a bit to the shops. Trollies were placed near the automatic sliding door with a request to take trollies at the second floor. Walked aimlessly through some of the shops. Blah blah blah blah blah and Popular book store was in sight. No words could describe my feelings at encountering a shop with very little reading material. Seriously, this was sad.

Proceeded to the hypermart and nephew slipped into the shopping trolly. Bad idea. Walked and ran along some aisles before he decided to stand up to grab some ice from the fruit juices. Bad idea. I turned the trolley at that exact same moment and he tumbled down. -__- Eh, bumped his back and head but he was strong enough not to cry out loud. Although he said he didn't felt pain anymore, he just became a quiet person after that. I rubbed the back of his head and held him close to me. His mom never saw it though, but I had to spill the beans. Maid was being nosey.

Alrighty then, everything went fine until we had to return. Damn, where was the exit road? We were at a junction where a signboard said Gelugor was to the right, since we weren't going there common sense says that the correct way would be to turn left. Wrong. We ended up in dark allies and dead ends along with 2 other confused drivers at the government Marine apartments. Tried asking other people along the road but it turns out that they were foreign workers. o_O To cut a long story short, we found out that the way to Gelugor was the only way out. Talk about a long way back...

Of course I felt guilty when I accidentally injured him. Now if he were to be perpetually non-bursting with energy and occasional violent randomness, I'd actually like him.

If your nephew isn't very badly or seriously injured, there's no need to feel excessively guilty. After all, it was just an accident.
