The Driving Catastrophe!

Hey people! Guess what? I've finally taken my driving test, got my driving licence, and experienced my first drive around the town! Hehe, I must say, it was pretty thrilling >_<

I remember speeding on the Malaysian highways at about 80km/h just on my first drive! Oh, the thrill of it! The maximum speed for the highways are at 110km/h and my instructor, who was sitting beside me was urging me to increase my speed, and to step more daringly on the accelerator ('cos I was like going at only 50+km/h that time).

There was also a couple of times where my enginge died in the middle of the road. The first time in a traffic jam. The second in front of the traffic light and the last time while going through the ERPs. Yes, the government is squeezing the life out of us. Why the engine died you asked? That's because silly me released the clutch too fast despite my instructor's numerous reminders. What can I do? He's speaking in Malay.

Oh yah, and before I forgot, my parents bought me a car too! Oh-pampered-me. Well, not that they agreed to it without conditions. Yes, I'm responsible for driving my brothers (not one, but TWO!) to school now. Not that it's too much of a favour to ask but I couldn't be more glad to help anyway. I love driving! I'll put up another post once I get tired of it. *wink*

They bought me a Proton Savvy, known for its fuel-efficiency and AMT (Auto-Manual Transmission) functions. Here's the picture:


I would have prefered another colour, apple green actually but oh wells.

My first drive in my very own car takes place yesterday. August the 20th while on my way to school. Yes, I'm 17 and I can drive! Yay. Lol. I'm bragging all I want. I reached my school campus safely, but not without choruses of rants and beratings from my mum, preeching me to look before I drive, stop at junctions and to improve my steering skills. Yes mummy, I understand.

Oh and because of my magnificent driving skills, a normal 10 minute drive took another extended 5 minutes and I'm late to class. Great.

Just for you trivial knowledge, the last time I checked, Malaysia's ranked top three in countries with the most reckless driving.

Lol, now you know why.

Haha. I will, gladly - in about 2 years time. That's my probationary period. I can't drive in Singapore with my current licence. Sad, but you'll wait for me, wouldn't you? LOL.
