Car 101


3 days ago, the air condition of my car totally failed to ‘deliver’ the cool air while I was driving… I pressed the button many many times..it didn’t works. Shucks!..Called my better half and started to blabber blabber, “ I asked u to check tht day..bla bla bla..” “ I checked laa…twas doin fine..bla bla bla”, “ Then why it is like this.. blab blab..”, “ are u gonna scold me now while I am doing this…@#$%^” “ Yeah of course..m terribly warm and when I am warm I am very angry !@#$%” ( a normal kinda conversation )

Then after we met, he said it might be the fan motor or something and can cost up to nearly rm300. I was like oh dhang!...mid month ni…ok nemindlah waitlah a while. And then he said, “its okay I’ll get it fix day after tomorrow ya..just be patience, I’ll try to go off from the office early”. Ya okay .. sheesh

Yesterday, I had to do a lot of driving around….and its hot hot hot…and if its raining also hot!...Stucked in a stupid jam some more..Friday-raining-accident-everybody go off from work-kinda-jam.Yeah! can imagine aaa…

Called up my better half, “Where are you?” “Still here ( at the office)” “ What!..yre suppose to be on the road now..jam..raining..what time yre gonna reach here..the workshop will close..bla bla bla”, “ Can u please be patience..theres things that are not under my control @#$%^”

So I slowly drove around ( waiting for him ), picked up my kids, bought dunkin donuts..yummy..cool me down a bit.. and its getting dark.

“Where are you?” “ Still stuck in the jam in Jalan TARazak”, “Oh God”, “Theres this woman lying on the road, dead..accident..car..bike..crash..bla bla” “ Adoiii..its getting dark…I go to the workshop first lah..i’ll wait for you there”, “ Ok good idea..wait for me to nego the price”

Off me go to the workshop which is about to close.

Mechanic played along with the switch first…opened up the engine. Nothing wrong with the motor, only the switch. I asked, “ Kenapa dia rosak aaa..”,“ Lu dengar ini…” he shaked it, the switch has ticking ticking sound, something lose inside it… “OOOO…Okay..berapa?” “lima puluh lapan”, “Haiya bro switch kecik 58 ka” “ Original maaa..oklah..55”

Me was very happy *grinnnnnn”…

Called my better half again, he immediately asked, “So how much?”, “55”, “Huh?..What?”, “It’s the switch”, “ OOO..wait for me to come and pay, m near already” “Paid”, “O okay, we go for dinner after this” “ Okay..heheeee..” happyyy…that means he has a little extra, kaching!

Whoaaa… I felt like a hero, I can ‘manage’ the car by myself…

After dinner, “ Yang, can u fill up the air-tyre ..” *grinnnn*

Change tyre?..what is that??..touch wood..hey..i was taught to drift not fix cars hehe

okay ...okay..one fine day i will find the courage to learn ..ahaks

PEACE

Oh, I so know that discomfort.

I was driving my dad's old car for a while and his car's aircon totally out for a long time. Rather, if you have the aircon on and kena jam, enjin panas. So drove with no aircon for a long while. Malu to give people a ride also, because they'll be like in a sauna.

But I am blessed with the fact that having been driving for the last 16 years, I have never need to pay for any of the car. Kereta buruk asal can jalan I am thankful. Got wheels will go. :)
