Putra, my hero


Hi guys, I'm back after taking a short break from the blog sphere. Busy following my hubby to check on car auto-parts and accessories shops. We are in the midst of revamping/decorating/modifying our dear car. I know it's costing us a few thousands. :(

First, we went to a bodykit shop called 'Body Art' and after seeing a few catalogues, i was like choose this one or no that one is nicer. Couldn't decide on one. Phew.... But the warning i got from my sweetheart was 'if you were to collide or someone hit the bumpers, it will break easily as they are made of fibre. So think twice before deciding'. The complete bodykit for our Putra cost RM850. My hubby wasn't keen on putting fibre bumpers instead he said it should remain as it is. We did the side skirting only, which was pretty cool.

On the following day, we went to the tyre shop. The guy recommended Proxes R1R tyres for our putra, it seems that was the tyre used in the Fast & Furious. It costs RM1300 complete with alignment. It took almost 2 1/2 hours to complete coz there were many cars already in the shop. So to kill time, i was talking with my love. I told him that as a husband he has to ensure the car is in good condition and with proper facilities before the wife drives the car. As you all know, ladies are always up to the trend and very neat, we don't want to get stuck in the middle of the road, crying for help. He was like 'ya ya papaya only, for a new driver like you, this is really too much to handle, which made me laugh out loud. So cute my darling.

Last week, we changed the door alarm system as well as the lights which costs nearly RM800. And just yesterday, it was sent for some knocking and spray-painting. From purplish-blue, its gonna be mica blue with pearl. And the price for that will be RM2300. Nevertheless, I'm so excited to see the outcome coz i chose that colour. It will be ready in 8 days. Really missing my car. I will post the pictures soon.

P.S. And it's really sad to know on the fuel price now. Normal full tank for my car is RM100 but now i think it would be RM 130 to RM150. How to survive like this with food price going up and fuel price going up? And i heard that its gonna be hiked again. What the hell is happening!

Anyway, its better to upgrade the car and keep it in a good condition rather than buy a new one and pay the monthly installments. I think we have made a right decision in that sense. Don't u agree, prem?
