Queen of the Universe
Midweek Wednesday. And I am still recuperating from the mad-ass weekend I had. I spent a total of $70 in petrol, just driving all over Singapore, doing things I needed to do to catch up with my driver friends. HAHAHA. The best must have been driving The Gap, with R in the passenger seat, constantly giving confusing signs with his hands, not that I could see, because hello, it's DARK, and telling me in half panicked balls-in-throat tone that I'm too close to the curb.|
Hurhur accidental payback for all the times I sat in the passenger seat and him doing his racer moves. R not only for Rockstar okay, R for Racer. LOL.
I've covered East (Tampines/Bedok/Pasir Ris/Changi), West (Clementi, CCK, Bt Panjang), North (Yishun/Woodlands), South (Telok Blangah/Keppel) and Central (Orchard/River Valley). I've gotten a taste of assholes who speed up once you signal your intention to change lanes, I have been charged cut throat prices for parking (airport!), I have lost my way a few times by taking a wrong turn/exit and I have encountered idiot pedestrians who cross carparks like it's a park with lush greenery and beautiful flowers for all to admire.
I also got a fine.
Not for anything traffic or parking charges related, but for littering. From the drivers seat, where I was parked and taking a smoke. Flicked my cigg butt and there, out of NOWHERE, some aci rempah woman for NParks appeared and demanded me for my IC.
I consider doing a so-mode-ti-be on that woman and her equally erm, lame mat partner, for working such a nasty job, issuing summons to people.
What a weekend it was!
I slept very little, to make use of every bit I spent on the car. Which I absolutely LOVED. It was a Honda Fit, good machine it was, just messed me up a bit when I needed to park because I guess I wasn't used to the whole hatchback thing. Driving Abang or Iqa's car was easier because it was smoother (bigger engine capacity duhhhh) and was a sedan. Driving my Dad's was totally stressful because it was such a long car. But the Fit, I was in love. Though again, R kept having to remind me that going under 60km/h on the expressways was considered road hogging.
I am a very happy camper. Also a thankful one because I didn't get into any mishaps, like accidents or anything like that.
And so, a Car Fund has been set up. I want to buy my own. Nevermind the crazy amount of money involved in that. I can stop eating for all I care (which I should, really) coz I really really really don't want to take public transport anymore.
Also, I have bumped into a GAZILLION amount of cute guys at petrol kiosks and I know they didn't walk there. Fine place to cuci mata really these petrol kiosks. And they are right, view from the driver's seat definitely looks different. When I'm driving, and when I'm getting out of the car HEHEHEHEHE.
Oh but the alarm thingy for the car drives me crazy. I have no idea how the shit works and it keeps going off on me, making me look like a typical bimbotic lady driver. HAHAHAHA. Not complaining. It ups the cute factor I guess.
