it came to my senses

Finally I came back to my senses once I got home yesterday. You see I was browsing through all protons, which were showcased at ground floor here in my office. It felt as if I had to have that shiny orange 1.6 Neo. My emotionally-reasoning was based totally on,.. well,.. emotion…
1. Between Neo 1.3 and Savvy 1.0 – the difference is just a few thousands.
2. Between Neo 1.3 and 1.6 – the monthly installment difference is barely RM50.
3. Well, it’s hip and young and vibrant.

Upon seeing my kids running to greet me I realized I need to get back to the basics of having my own small car. SMALL, I repeat. It was supposed to help us save some petrol expenses and to save that ‘saved’ portion and not to spend on something else, in my ‘emotional case’ yesterday, it was obviously on monthly installment. Then it won’t make any saving point, right? Savvy is like a need while Neo is a want. It’s only a second car anyway. We won’t be driving it long distance. I bet it won’t even leave KL! (and I am not even hip, vibrant and young. Told you, I’m boring)

*slap* *slap* *slap* *came back to my senses*

We’ll be visiting Perodua and maybe Naza before finally deciding on either Savvy, Kelisa or Kenari (thanks IV for the inputs) or MyVi. We’ll see lah how.

Anyway, much to her grannies excitement, Kakak is so wanting to spend a week or two with Atok and Wan. We’ll be sending her off this weekend BUT if she changes her mind on Sunday, I’d be more than happy to bring her back to KL. So far, she’s still holding on to her decision PLUS she insists that she has to have Iman around while in kampung (much to their grannies ‘gasps’ and ‘laaaaaa…. pulokkk’ and their Mokkucu’s ‘Iman???.. Kakak sorang je tak boleh ke?’) See, how famous that little fellow is. It’s not that they don’t like him but with him and and his antics and activities, he’ll sure have them on their toes all the time including sleeping time. For all you know, in the wee hours, you’ll be awaken by his cries with him nowhere in sight. Just look for him in the kitchen, near his formula can, he’ll sure be there. Gosh, I miss them already. Anyway, that will permit us ample, peaceful time to frolic around.

Honeymoon eh?

ajzie ~ si kakak yang nak sangat balik kampung, ummi tak suruh pun. in fact dalam ramai2 cucu tu, dia ngan adik dia je yang boleh tinggal ngan atok dan wan. 1st time kakak kena tinggal when she was just 4 months old.

syikin ~ yep,.. dah banyak kali dah. memula disebabkan kerja yang banyak outstation. lepas tu masalah dgn babysitter. sekarang ni anak yang willingly nak bertemankan atok ngan wan diorang.kali ni tak 'seriau' sangat sbb kami di KL aje, tak jauh mana. masa gi korea tu resah gelisah jugak. ye lah, kalau apa2, bukannya dekat nak balik.

Ummi,
juz wanna share my opinion abt the cars.

I owned Savvy (1.1 cc), for about a year. Baru je renew roadtax last week. I am not sure whether Savvy ni jimat minyak sebab saya tak pernah buat comparison dgn kereta lain. Tapi sebenarnya my main reason masa beli Savvy ni dulu memang nak jimat minyak. Normally, when i pumped in rm57 (full tank Savvy, setakat ni) I can go as far as 460km. Does it make sense to you? Jimat ke? What say you?

anonymous ~ thanks for the input. i, too will have to refer to my husband but i think cheaper than our kereta sekarang. kalau full tank goes 460km, that would mean around 9-10 to-fro trips ke ofis.
