Temporary Car Radiator Fix using Steel Filled Epoxy during CNY

I discovered there was a few hairline cracks on my car's radiator top during the eve of Chinese New Year. All the mechanics in my hometown are already closed that time. When I called up a few mechanics, most of them told me that they will only open for business on the 8th day of CNY and the car radiator workshop would open on the 10th day. Therefore, if I don't get something done, I would not be able to drive back to KL or use my car during that time. Waiting in my hometown till the 10th day would be a no no, because I need to get back to KL earlier than that.
Luckilly, the hypermarkets are still open for business and I found steel filled epoxy that can be used to temporarily repair radiators in a DIY shop there. I mixed the epoxy with the hardener and patched up the leaks on my radiator. After that, I managed to drive back to KL and the radiator only lost around 0.5 litre of water. LOL!

Ummmm...I'm not technically-inclined. Anything, I'd just call the mechanic.
