I have definitely been neglecting this blog. All due to the more consumingly addictive games in Facebook. Words are unnecessary in these games.. which unfortunately does not bode well for me (i.e. ignoring writing.
My new ride has been without music for the last three days (grumble grumble).. So i sent her to the service centre just now. i am back at work, (using precious working hours to blog), and will retrieve dear Pegasus later at three. I will have to postpone some other errands which I had earlier planned.

Trip to Labuan- Part deux

Well, sis will(according to Hokkien tradition) officially belong to the Chua household. :).. She looks right at home with them already. We, of the Malitam clan, fit right in any situation..just as long as we are treated right..but isn't that the norm..

Me, my pegasus and I

After driving second hand cars all these years, I finally have a car that has my name on the car registration card stated as a first owner.
My flightless horse, my silver pegasus, my Persona. Why Persona? Why not?
I know many a friend would say, oh, why Persona? Most have this idea that I should drive something hardy and powerful and strong like a Rav4, baby Prado, la la la.. I would, if they were paying for it. hahaha....
Anyway, a buddy drove me over to Proton Edar Inanam (Happy Birthday again, friend) nearly noon. The pegasus was already waiting for me there. All ready for me to take charge and say heigh ho silver!!.. After signing a few more papers Mary brought me over to the car. We walked over towards the service center (where all the cars were parked) and saw it..bearing the old number plate of my previous car). She had given the keys to me earlier and so I pressed the button and the door gently beeped it's approval for entry.
I opened the back door first and started to tear off the plastic coverings. Asked my friend to help me on the other side of the car. No point keeping the plastic for show. I know it's new and that's all that matters. No need to have it in place for all the world to see.
After clearing the seats off the plastics, we both went in and sat inside. Me on the driver's, Guitarman on the other side..excitedly going over the buttons and finding out their functions.
Anyways, driving this automatic transmission is quite the experience. I drive automatics every now and then (me mum's Matrix) but I found out that driving my own automatics for the first time gave me the jitters.
I also went to Han's Car Mart this afternoon to have the windows tinted. Bought an air freshener too. My nose seem to not able to fully accept the new car smell. I finally reached home around 8, feeling tired.
Tired but glad.

not yet..

Wishful thinking. nope.. not going to be a mama today.

Come to mama

So. Today's the day. If all goes to plan, no hitches, i'll be bringing back a new ride. I am going to miss this black and silver ensemble. Really really going to miss him.
Off to have my breakfast of half-boiled eggs, some milo and a donut perhaps.

adieu and greetings

Come Thursday
Will bid adieu to a loyal companion
sad but it's got to be done
will miss the power
it gave me
feline machismo

but the line will not be cut
a part of it
will remain
and live on
in the new fly machine

come what may
bring it on.

Visited the Lok Kawi Ramadhan Stalls. A lot of authentic semenanjung cuisines here. Why do I say authentic? Most of the sellers are the wives of army staff (mostly not from around east malaysia) who are very much skilled in cooking the food they are most familiar with. Food, food and more food...

I love this! Blue rice..a quartered salted duck egg..some dessicated coconut..finely shredded cabbage, bunga kantan and long beans (raw)..batter-coated fried fish..and this thingy inside the chilli..chilli n prawn paste..delicious curry-like sauce.


It rained hard early this morning. Made me doubt just for a second if the trip to Togudon would go on as planned.

The Pegasus

Ms Mary called..enough to slowly rouse me from my late afternoon nap. Informing me that the new ride will be arriving next sunday. 13th to be exact. Telling me to go over the bank and sign the agreement, in anticipation of the coming wheeled Pegasus. Righto. The call came about half past 6pm. Working overtime eh. Workoholic?
Some parts of me feel relief, that soon i'll be mobiling around with a ride with an automated transmission. With the jam that's going around these days. Oh, 'these days'? The only time the road's not is when it's not peak hours.
