Selling Old And Getting New After Chinese New Year

Since the day we test drove the Suzuki Swift, Andy has been giving some suggestions on which car we should get for my girl.  At present we have two cars and we thought of selling one away and get a newer one.  In fact we have put up an advertisement online to sell off one of our cars because at the moment, both cars are sort of "too big" for my girl.  She needs a much smaller car, something with 1100cc should be fine with her.  She just wants to drive it around her college vicinity and to move around just around the small town.

That was why we went for the test drive the other day but we did not really like the model.  We heard of the New Automotive Policy recently in the papers and now we are awaiting for the new car rates.  Some of the car models we have in mind is Myvi, Atos, Hyundai I10 and the last choice is Viva.  I think the latter should suit my girl fine, the car is small, easy to handle and save petrol consumption since the petrol prices have risen recently.

A few people responded to our online advertisement on the sale of our present car.  One have seen it and has given a good price.  However, I am still undecided whether to sell it off or not, I am kind of sentimental when it comes to cars.  I treat my cars like my "babes"... LOL... Day in and day out, I have been sitting in this car for years and it has kind of gone through many "experiences" with me, if you know what I mean.  LOL.... Well, I guess I have to let it go one day... meanwhile I will look into the car loans and their monthly installments, check whether I could still afford to pay since I am going on retirement "soon."  There won't a new car for the new year, too late for that but I surely will spend more time with my "babe" during Chinese New Year!

  3. My mechanic says don't buy that - buy Toyota...or even MyVy, better - all the parts same as Toyota's...but maybe different at your side, service better, parts easily available - any brand.

  4. If you ask me:
    1) Myvi (always my first choice, don't ask why)
    2) Honda City (they have dropped the price and the current price is cheaper than Vios)
    3) Almeera (they say it's a good buy, but it's "big" and "bulky", not "see mun" for girls, haha)

  7. I test drove a Viva two years ago and did not like it. The car feels too light - very wobbly. Have you considered the small new Picanto?

    1. Yes, I heard Picanto is not bad.. KIA but no second hand value... But then all 2nd hand cars normally have no value, right?

  8. I think Myvi is a good choice. Just nice. My son bought Myvi last December with a rebate of RM1500. Heard people say Viva is very light & shaky.

    1. Yes, I have a Viva before... but no power steering so very hard to drive.. sold off liow.. if I buy this time, I will choose a power steering one.. but most probably wont get one because driven before.. maybe buy 2nd hand MYvi..

  9. There's banks who are offering good car loans nowadays, just have to get the right one for your needs! :)

    I'll go with a MyVi also, it's easier for spare parts and I heard good stories about the gas mileage. Hope you get a good deal on your car if you sell it.

    Happy CNY to you and your family Reana! :)

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
