It was the first day of Level B1 Spanish class. Since I didn’t manage to replace the battery the night before, I had the feeling that Buruk (I’m sooooo going to call the old car “Buruk” from now on) would throw tantrums again. Coincidentally, Angah had to fly to Singapore early in the morning. So I asked him to leave his car with me, just in case.
True enough, Buruk wouldn’t start, yet again.
And my class was at 10am. Great.
So I used Angah’s car over the weekend.
Since Buruk couldn’t move an inch and I had no idea how to replace a car battery, I had to call the insurance company, yet again. And they sent over a repair man, yet again. The guy tried to jumpstart Buruk, it didn’t work. The engine just sneezed and died. The guy said it wasn’t the battery, because if it was, the engine wouldn’t die on its own.
“Ini dia punya enjin total body dalam ada kotor. Bila you start dia bukak, lepas tu dia tada tutup habis, itu pasal enjin mati. You kena pigi hantar workshop. Kasi cuci itu dalam.”
Somehow his explanation made me thought of Caltex Techron commercial.
Angah needs his car back today, so he has to send me to office and then only he can go to work. I will have to find someone to send me home later.
Buruk will be sent to the
In the mean time, my dad asked me to stay put with Buruk a little while longer.
“I know you are getting tired of it, but remember it has done us a lot of jasa!”
Perhaps Buruk just can’t wait to retire!
