Traffic and prayers.
Basically, if you live in KK, you'll have to bear with these two; the traffic and your prayers.
The traffic in KK is totally unbearable. Imagine KL with no highways, elevated highways, too many traffic lights, and roundabouts. Imagine each houses have 2 or 3 cars, and each of it bustle within the city every single day. Imagine KL with unreliable public transportation, no LRT, monorail or a safe bus trip. Yerp, that's KK.
For the past 8 months living here, I already know what time to drive about KK, which route should I take etc. The journey from home to UMS took 15 minutes during a very lucky day, 25 minutes during most of the days, 45 minutes when the traffic started to get bad and up to 2 hours when the traffic is very very bad.
So, when the traffic got really really bad, it will affect number 2: your prayer especially Maghrib.
Office hour ends at 5pm. Maghrib is at 6.20pm. Isya' is at 7.35pm. You'll be lucky if you managed to reach home before Isya'. So I always stopped by at the mosque to perform prayer.
I've been teaching dance at a local school should be nearby the house every evening, but because of the traffic I have to stop at a mosque along the way to perform Asar and Maghrib. The first time I arrived, I had to think hard whether to continue performing prayer at the mosque because the toilets were *gulp* It almost made me cry! Just like how I cried (such a baby!) during my stay in UUM for MASUM, ah well I swear that was the last! I had to tip toed from the ambulation area to the prayer area.
But what should I do? It is the closest mosque :( Guess I have to bear with it or maybe I should call the AJK there.
Oh on a different note, just to share with you syarat-syarat sah makmum, pasal moi sangat dumb masa solat sampai tak kusyuk just because takut solat tak sah, the girl next to me berdiri jauh gile from me and a bit di belakang saf.
I called Obe right after prayer and he clarified some to me; solat sah selagi kita ikut Imam. Berdiri rapat dan tumit kaki di garisan belakang sejadah untuk lebih afdal aje.
I went back home, did some reading, so yes there's no such a thing, wohoooo!
