Away from Singapore for a fortnight, I reached Singapore only on Friday evening.
Although tired, I was jet-lagged and could not sleep until 5am.
The sun was already midway by the time I roused from my slumber.

I inserted and turned my car
An unfamiliar choking sound.

The car did not manage to start.
I clanked the key a few more times but the vehicle refused to cooperate.
Giving up, I decided to go back home to find the cause.

Getting home, I compressed the button on my PC.
While loading the Windows OS, a dreaded blue screen of death appeared.
Then it prompted me to reboot the machine.

I was unable to rectify the problem.
My PC appeared to be dead.

Needless to say, it was a terrible Saturday for me. Ho
Jetlag, car breakdown and unbootable PC, all in one day.
Bad things happen in threes.

In yet another sleepless night yesterday, I thought of the day’s events.
A realization came to my mind – in life, bad things does not come in isolation.
They almost always occur together.
