Decided.

After reading so many reviews on malaysian cars (proton, perodua) and foreign cars (suzuki, toyota, honda);

I have decided that IF...i were to buy a car...i'd buy the Suzuki Swift. ^^

Actually, I always have been having an eye on that car ever since it first launched. Credits to the information given by forum members in Motor Trader and also some videos I watched on "youtube.com". Now I am more sure than ever that this would be my first choice for my first car.

However there are a few drawbacks about the Swift;

1. has very little luggage space. Not very good for travelling unless it's just 2-3 people.

2. Some complains about the ceiling of the car not being made with good enough material resulting in loud noise when it rains. (but the current white kancil i'm driving is way worse so I guess I can live with it.)

3. Some Swift users complained that when shifting into reverse gear the car jerks a bit (for auto). But maybe that's because the engine is very powerful?


So far, these are the only drawbacks I've heard/seen/read online.

Now for the good parts...and ONLY...the good parts. =)

1. Very good stability and can take good corners even at high speeds. One of the forum members in Motor Trader said "try driving it down Cameron Highlands, you'll definitely enjoy the ride down."

2. FC (fuel consumption) is around 0.138 cents/km or 13.9km/litre. But i think it's for the 1.3...not the 1.5.

3. Seats are extremely comfortable, and the interior design makes the Swift an even enjoyable ride.


I've got lots more to say, but unfortunately I've gtg. Watching "How to Train A Dragon" with my lil sister.

In conclusion, i'm going to get a Swift. =] (when i get the money)

Ciaoz peeps. =P

For all the stupid things...

I feel sorry for myself.
That i can just take you for granted.
And not bother about how you would feel.
How selfish can i be?
You do not deserve this from me.
Countless times, i have broken your heart.
But still you forgive...even though you were hurt.
Still you cared...even though you weren't cared for.
And still you loved...even though i loved you less.
How could I ever thank you enough for the things that you have done for me?

I'm sorry.

For all the stupid things...
I have said and done.

I never meant to hurt you.
But each time I do, i learn to love & appreciate you more.

Thank you, for everything.

Yo people!

I dunno how many times i've tried to revive this dead blog but to no avail it just dies in the end anyway.

Was forced to live without internet for a painful 1 month, hence the reduced ability to update FB and also my blog. Have been resorting to cyber cafes but didn't go often since i was so damn broke/didn't wanna spend unecessarily.

But thankfully, I have an awesome dad who knows how to get things done. He is a highly-skilled consumer right's negotiater. All i can say is, he really knows how to play the cards in his hands well. =]

ANYHOO,

It's been a while. A lot of things have been happening. I went to Kuala Terengganu for the first time. And also got to experience what it was like to venture deep down into the interesting parts of the historical city called Melaka. My very first time going to Jonker street too! =D

Other than that, my life in the past few weeks have turned out to be what I would call, "pretty dramatic". It's like a storybook that never has an ending. It just keeps coming and coming. Getting a bit tired of it actually. Can't take it anymore. But i'm glad some of the issues were solved. The remaining ones are just up to the other party to deal with it. I could only do so much, the rest is up to the other side.

Sometimes I wonder why I force myself to hold back to make sure my actions don't affect the people around me. It's not like I'm shootin' at em with a gun or something. It's just something that would make other people feel whatever they wanna feel. (Obviously hurt/offended/uncomfortable)

But i do, in the end. Somehow. Makes me feel so shitty but for the sake of jaga-ing the other person's feelings, i do so. Despite me going thru this, I don't regret. Because I've learnt a lot of things through these tough times. Correction, dramatic times. My dad once told me;

"The best school in the world is experience, but it is also the most expensive one."*so true*

All i can say is, i'm truly blessed. =]

Well, I guess that's all i have to say for now. Take care blog. Don't die again.

Love,
Benson.
