लेजंग काउ kejang
"lejang kau kejang-lah." said the mechanic.
"what the hell does that supposed to mean?" i replied.
"it means your lejang - cram a bit, like muscle cram?" the mechanic continued blabbering all the stuff which are sanskrit to me.
i asked him to start the engine and show it to me. he did. he twisted the key and straight away we could both hear funny sound coming from the V4 engine.
it sounded a bit like "ughhh... arghhhh... arcckk!"
"what the fuck? did that come from the engine? it sounds like ..."
"a guy having cram? yeah-laaa... told you what?" said the mechanic
"how much?" i asked but i guess he could sense that i was worried more about the dent in my pocket rather than the engine.
"about 2350, friend friend... if not probably about 2500..."
"are you sure lejang i kejang?" i asked.
he paused for a bit. took a deep breath, shooked his head and walked off.
