weekend project part 14

Half of last Saturday was spent at the workshop, getting my *CLK serviced and what not. Obviously I had to drag Lil Bro along, after I almost break down his room door coz waking him up is a task on its own. pfft. I knew I should've sent it for servicing earlier because the longer I wait, the more damages there were. Imagine that I had to change my tires, all four of em! tsk. The old ones are already bengkak and botak licin and the mechanics told me that if I drive fast, they could explode. But then how fast can a CLK go, right? Right? No wonder the steering wheel feels different lately. When the tires are changed, the brake pads need to be changed as well as apparently the old ones are already worn out. And then there's the air filter thingy, spark plug thingamajiggy, this oil, that oil and one thing leads to another pfft and before I know it, it cost me a whopping 619 bucks. Phew. That is a lot for a CLK. I mean, it's not even a real CLK! Unless of course if they were mencekik me even though I’m a loyal customer. I tried to bargain here and there, batted some eyelashes and gave my cutest smile ever but it didn’t work. Damn it. Speaking of mechanics, I was wondering, how hard is their work anyway? Some of the Malay mechanics were not fasting that day and they openly smoke and drink (milo ais, sirap bandung and orange juice pulak tu!) in front of us, tanpa rasa segan silu. Well, I wasn't fasting as well but I did not drink in public (even though McD is just across the road and I can literally hear chocolate sundae calling my name). Oh well, who am I to judge, right? and....one of them also had the cheek to ask for my phone number! I mean puuhhleezzz.
By the way, the road tax is expiring end of this month so insurance and road tax need to be renewed asap. By asap I mean before raya so that I could claim my RM625 rebate to cover the whole thing could go jalan-jalan berhari raya. Now the CLK feels like brand new, what with new 'shoes' , brake pad and all. So who wants to go on a ride with me? haha.
and so my dream(s) of driving a mini and/or vw beetle shall remain a dream. for now...
