Today, another busy weekend. Wake up around 6am the morning, to prepare for Tomb Sweeping. Everyone in the family is going except for Carmen, dear and my 2nd sister in law. 17 family members plus 3 relatives, total 5 cars.
Initial plan was start our journey at 7:30am, but we delayed 15 minutes. Nirwana Memorial Park, 45-60 minutes of car journey from my house, located in Semenyih, further of Kajang. At first we followed each other closely, but not even 10 minutes later, I lost them, they are further in front of me. Luckily I still remember the way to Semenyih, because my colleague stayed in Kajang, in the middle way to Semenyih.
After passing by my colleague house, 10 minutes later I saw the road was jam of cars, all stuck in the traffic. That’s the only way to Nirwana Memorial Park, so have to queue. After hour and hour later, I still stuck in the traffic jam. This time, my relative call me, he asked me to use the outer lane, then only queue in front of the junction, else queue like that will don’t know what time only reach there. I follow his advice, so drive out to the outer lane and queue back in the junction, it was really fast. I know is bad, but something have to act bad.
At last we reached the Nirwana Memorial Park at 12 noon. Almost 5 hour’s car journey. We do praying in front of father graveyards. We spend another hour there, the traffic outside still jam. We took another way back, some sort of jungle road.
After another hour plus of car journey, we reached home around 3:30pm. We had lunch on the way back home. Is really tired after driving whole day. We hope next year we can go early to avoid the traffic.
