Car is so expensive

1st July, Sun

It didn't occur to me that 1st July is Youth Day! In fact I never knew. 

Sunday has always been a family day, so it was a pretty peaceful afternoon with the family before sending the brother back to camp. 

#lunch. So big pack because mummy packed for me! 😉 (Taken with Instagram)

My lunch, packed by mummy from her canteen. 
Too much rice for me to finish but have to, because the mum sits beside me to force me swallow down every grains.

It’s July! And the #jollibean addict is back! :D  (Taken with Instagram)

Bought Jollibean after sending the brother off! :D 
It's July so I didn't break my promise!

2nd July, Mon

Youth day holiday! Yay! 
I still have work to do though, to 'supervise' the renovation at home. 

#homemade #mantou for #breakfast! :D (Taken with Instagram)

Homemade mantou

Daddy loves mantou because he said it's more 'filling' to the stomach and I have to agree. Ate 4 of them and I wasn't hungry till late afternoon!

Anyways, I sent the car for servicing after breakfast and I'm $1200 poorer now. Car is a very expensive thing. 

Why so much? 
1. $300 for servicing
2. $400 for replace of tyres
3. $500 for spraying and touching up of scratches 


You must be wondering why I need $500 to do the scratches? Sigh, I didn't write about this, but last week my car was being scratch by some unknown idiot when I parked it at Pasir Ris central. The scratch was really big and bad to the extent that I have to replace the whole front bumper. So that kinda explain the whole $500 thing and justify my point that owning a car is expensive. 

Of course I can live without fixing that scratch, but no. It's too ugly! I cannot. 
Oh, I did spend my day cursing the person who did that and I think god can understand and forgive me.

Yups, so I went to a workshop in Sin Ming and the people there are really nice! The boss kinda 'educate' me a bit on driving and things. We chatted a bit and he thought I'm a frequent driver because he said he can feel that I'm a confident driver from my driving skills! Oh man, wished my dad was around to hear that! But of course I didn't leave my car to him because he sweet-talked me! Haha! 
The funny thing is he tried to psycho me to drive my car more, because he thinks it's a pity that I'm a 'weekend-driver'.

Oh ya, the $1200 hasn't include the $140 that I spent last week on my car. 
By the way, I'm not taking any cents from my parents. So how broke am I? Do the calculations.

Anyways, the boss was really nice to drop me off at Bishan such I was 'car-less'.

Hopefully these can last though my attachment! :D  (Taken with Instagram)

4 boxes of oreo as snacks for the remaining 3 weeks of attachment.

Love #oreo ? Let’s be friends! ^^  (Taken with Instagram)

I think not much people are aware that I'm quite crazy for Oreo too.
Actually I contemplated buying Jollibean, but I think I want to leave with good impression for my colleagues.

Ripped off from the web, true story I guess?
Have fun reading!

1. Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

2. Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the football before helping around the house.

3. Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!

4. A Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer quickly to No 9 for the meaning of nothing.)

5. That’s Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

6. Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you’re welcome. (I want to add a clause here - This is true, unless she says ‘Thanks a lot’, which is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say ‘you’re welcome’ - that will bring on No. 7).

7. Whatever: Is a woman’s way of saying, “F— YOU!”

8. Don’t worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking ‘What’s wrong?’ For the woman’s response refer to No. 4.

9. Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in “Fine”.
