Auto Karmic Experience

I love my car, I really do. It is big, dark and has taken me far and wide all these 3 years.

But I don't treat it as good as it deserve.

Yesterday afternoon I promised the car to have it serviced, but I forgot. And last night I went out with a friend with HIS car, leaving my worthy vehicle at home (which I rarely do).

And this morning, as I was about to leave the petrol station near home for work, my car stalled. I didn't scream, not even panic. Because in the gloom of the morning, I can FEEL my car's smug aura. "Take that you evil driver, you!"

So now I am at home, typing this, while waiting for the workshop to open at 10.00 am. (Maybe I'll take an off-day.)

Treat your machines right. You might never know when they can fail you.


It cost me RM 280 for a f*cking maintenance-free battery, RM 68 for the bloody lubricant, RM 25 for a stupid oil filter and arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! I need to lie down a bit.

You think?

Actually, the price you quoted are pretty standard. Yes, MF battery does cost that much. RM68 for engine oil is pretty cheap, I think he must have sold you mineral oil and not semi-synthetic (which is used in my car), and the oil filter is pretty standard as well... You got off easy, frankly.

Could be worse. Could be your timing belt went kaput. Have you changed your timing belt yet?

Aizan; My timing belt did went kaput last year. :(

Ahhh... I get it. Your PS3 is the love of your life (yet, you ditched it) and your car is the estranged lover.
