Merry-go-round ride

Today, i made myself a stupid fool, wanted to act smart like the best explorers around the world but all i ended was, touring around BU areas for no reasons.... damn it.... it was the most horrible session, i eva had on my bus ride... n it was my first but not my last....

well, i gotta admit that RapidKL (U71 & U82) ride was my first since RapidKL introduces plenty of routes to head on to favorite places like One Utama and so on... n the best thing was i can't even get off from the bus when i was supposed to stop... i was shocked... n was speechless.. :(

The nightmare started all the way back from .... here Sri Petaling to.... KL Sentral.....and to
Jalan Tun Sambanthan - Jalan Travers - Jalan Damansara - Duta Vista - Jalan Semantan - Peninsula Residence - Bangunan CIMB - Damansara Heights - Pusat Bandar Damansara - Menara Millennium - Lebuhraya SPRINT - Victoria Station, Lebuhraya SPRINT - Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam Malaysia - Phileo Damansara - Section 17 Petaling Jaya - Desa Kiara Condominium - Damansara Intan - Jalan SS 21/1 - Damansara Utama (Uptown) - Jalan SS 21/56 - Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong - Lebuhraya SPRINT - Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad - IBM Plaza - Jalan Datuk Sulaiman - Taman Tun Dr Ismail - Persiaran Za'aba - Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi 2 - Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi 1 - Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi - Lebuh Bandar Utama - 1 Utama Shopping Centre.... n finally end up in Kepong ... a place which i have never ever visited in my life ....

Oh my.... my advice for today, please do carefully study mapped your route well and don't be a dumb @$$ like me ya... the journey took me around 1 and a half hour ride which i ended myself at Kepong 24hours McDonald area..... hunting for a RM15 ride back to my destination... d@mn it..
