Anyhow... i think i'm a decent driver with a reasonable road sense, one who's not a speed demon and has a nick of being able to park any vehicle in tight spots. I remember one nite when i was on a date with my recent ex, she said that it was impossible for me to fit my dad's wira between 2 cars and one of em narrow streets in desa sri hartamas. Well i proved her wrong. Lol.
Me : Pa, the volvo brokedown in bukit tunku.
Dad : What's wrong with the car?
Me : It just died whislt driving and now i can't start the car.
Dad : What sound does it make when u try to start the car?
Me : erm... kakakkaakakakakaakaka (something like dat)... then i pandai pandai said 'maybe its a problem with the starter' (like hell i know what a starter is, or if there's such a thing as a starter in a car)
Dad : Probably. Do u here a spark sound at the end as u try to start the car?
Me : (wtf?)... errr... 'No' (guessing)
Dad : could be the plugs are out
Me : err.. i guess.. (what is he talking about.. what plugs)??? maybe you're right Pa,.. its a problem with the plugs... i think so too
Dad : hmmm... are u sure the battery is working fine?
Me : (confidently).. yes... the lights are all on! (1 point for me)
Dad : hmmm.. (deep thought)... perhaps it could be an alternator problem.. its not charging up right or at all...
Me : hmmm... i didnt think of that Pa, (what the hell is an alternator?) that could be the reason eh.... (so that Dad wont go on in French)... Pa, tell u what, i'll leave the car here first, i've got my friend to fetch me... i'll go have lunch... then try to look for a foreman to check the car....
Dad : good idea... no point asking Afro (our family mechanic based in Cheras).. to go all the way there...
Sigh... after the conversation, i felt so like a blonde.... what the hell was my Dad talking about? How does he know so much bout cars? and how come i know jackshit?
To Dad... THANKS! YOU're THE MAN!!!!!
That's me and the damn car, with me trying to start the car whilst the foreman (from the net) investigates!
That's what's wrong with the car. U see that square thing, connected to the round thing, with the black thing, and the 6 cable thingy, and the fully rusted thingy, with the oxidised thingy and the white cap on the blue shit... oh whatever... who am i to kid?
