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! :)

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
