dan si buruk masih merajuk

Saturday morning...

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.

Sunday evening...

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 shrink mechanic tomorrow to get his brain engine checked. Fortunately tomorrow is a public holiday. Need to make the arrangement today though. The mechanic may close his shop to join Maulidur Rasul parade tomorrow. Who knows.

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!”

Oh well...

Perhaps Buruk just can’t wait to retire!

Kalau pokok buah tak berbuah, kita ugut dia dengan meletak parang kat trunk dia "aku tebang baru tau, tak nak berbuah" dan kebetulan, dia akan berbuah. Why not you do the same to si Buruk Busyuk :kau tak mau start, aku jual kau kat besi buruk...Anyway, dah sampai masa tukar kereta, dieya!

i'm trying hard to understand what the repair guys is trying to say...

can't imagine which of the engine part he's referring to:
teka teki--> apa yang bila buka dia tak tutup habis?
