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! :)

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
