Engine not starting

Few days back I was taking my time browsing some half-cut shops in USJ with 2 friends, as we attempt to go back to his factory, my car couldn't be started. Seems the ignition is working however there was no response on any ignition, even after hard pedal press.
So suspect that the fuel wasn't pumping in to the throttle body. Darn it, workshop had to be found. Thank god I have my friends with me, we pushed the car around 600 meters to the workshop (half-cut areas sure got few workshops!) and luckily the workshop still not closed (almost 7 o'clock) !
After simple diag of changing relay seems does not solve the problem, afterwards the car had to be left at the workshop with me digging my friends backseat, tired. Main suspect was the fuel pump, which had to be replaced with a used one that cost me almost RM200. New ones could be around RM300-Rm500, according to the mech-assistant... I wouldn't know.
After all that, Remp-IT was on again to make sure the pump works as it supposed to and results are no downing.

Yeah... also cost me an Emergency Leave.
Boss, forgive me.
