Is easy not to notice the flashing low fuel warning when you are driving on a country road with such breathtaking scenery. I pulled into an unbranded gas station at the kampung.
Petrol pump attendant Ahmad Burhani asked me if I want the fuel in a ketchup bottle, cooking oil bottle or a mineral water bottle. Only RON 95 grade is available and it starts at RM 2 per bottle.
Ahmad, who is autistic, makes a decent and honest living catering to local motorcyclists who find it inconvenient to ride all the way to town just to re-fill. His father buys the fuel for him.
The affable guy suggested I take all bottles, thinking I was planning to drive all the way to Pahang.
I didn’t even know the Orang Asli kampung and jungle trail can lead to Pahang. Another adventure for another day!
The petrol station’s security guard is a goose and it needs to go for anger management. It kept charging at my knee.
