Answer to the Stowaway Passenger Quiz


Hmmm… seems like nobody hit the bulls eye. The answer is actually a…

…SNAIL!!!

Yup, it’s a small snail sitting on the windscreen. Somewhere on the Karak Highway, it glided to the roof of the car and most probably blown away because when we arrived at the rest area I searched for the snail but it was nowhere to be found. I was sitting at the front seat and was able to snap a few photos of it. Scroll down to have a look!

We found it on the hiding behind the wiper after passing the Gombak toll.

Later it moved from left to the right side of the windscreen and started to climb.

It's already climbed higher than it's previous position but climbing at a very slow pace.

A few minutes later, it moved a few centimetres higher up. I guess it wanted to have a better view of the highway

The snail can now feel the wind pushing it upwards

The snail's desire to get a better view drops while his fear of getting blown away suddenly struck it as it glided up the windscreen assisted by the 'kind wind'

This was the last photo I was able to capture. Later, it glided up to the roof and disappeared. The poor old city snail who thought of moving to a nice town in Terengganu is now lost somewhere near the highway and had to learn to live the country ways. What a disappointment! 😦

Ps; I am now on my way to Terengganu accompanied by hopes of meeting Uncle Azahar at Zainun’s Nasi Ayam.

  1. So sorry Aiman I just could not meet you today. I have got a very important meeting today, if not I can sure join you and family there.

    It is true with what they said – we just plan but Allah decide.

    If it was a snail in your case, we had a toad as a stowaway. It was in my son’s sneaker. I was driving from Kemaman to Ipoh. Suddenly I felt a slimy thing moving against my feet. I groped and caught it – it was a toad. Then I stopped the car and released the stowaway frog at Tapah R&R

  2. What a huge creature! Not so little, after all.

    Pity… when the wind blown him/her, his grip came to a halt! He shouted, Helfer, helfer !! (ask dad for the correct spelling)
    He floated in the air, over your Citreon Evasion, !!!! Dropped! Crushed his shell. Hurt? Yes of course he was.

    Disappointed? Yes. He was unable to reach Terengganu… no less… even the Karak Highway… he was run over by another MPV driving behind yours…. he went dead not buried but flat on the road… sob, sob, sob!

  3. WOW.. where did the snail come from?

    anyways, i am also amazed with your grammar.. It’s perfect! 🙂 have a nice meeting there..

    see you!

  4. Dear Kak Santi,
    The snail? Probably from my house. Where else could it come from? 😉
    Thanks for your kind words but I must thank mum too. She’s the one who had been helping me all along. The meeting didn’t even exist as Uncle Azahar had a very important meeting in Kuantan. 😀
    Thanks for visiting my blog and do come and read it again.

  5. Dear Aunty Emy,

    Hahaha 😆 … I love your snail story. It’s really funny. Btw, behind us was not a MPV. I remember not seeing an MPV for quite a while. There only other cars and a few lorries. Let’s change the words. ” He was run over by a lorry driving behind yours” 😀
    An another thing, dad said that ‘snail’ is a female and the correct spelling would be ‘helfen’. I don’t know whether it’s right or wrong if it’s not for dad. But what I know is that if the snail loves to learn Spanish (like me), it would rather like you to change it into ‘Ayudeme’ 😉

  6. It have been such a long tym since i last commented ur blog… U noe how busy a p6 was . i also took JSLA. it is compulsory nowadays. come n visit my blog. BYE

  7. Great! You did the editing for me… Pity, I have just misplaced my Deutsch dictionary…

    MY! Was I amazed to know that my comments put you in stitches… hihihihihi.

  8. Dear Ayuni,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, a primary 6 student must be very well organised or else he/she might end up failing in the examination. Good luck! 😀

  9. Dear Aunty Emy,

    I didn’t edit the word myself, but dad did. But the story, yup, I did it myself…

    I still haven’t finish reading all your post. Quite busy nowadays and since dad had his new laptop, he became even busier. One of the only time when he’s not using the laptop is at my grandma’s shop but then I would be too bus helping mum.
