07022018 Y U no drink?

On the left, we have Mr. Jolly coming in at RM1.49 and on the right, its Mr. Anglia at RM1.79. Who will win?

In all my Life, I don't really consume alcohol much and in fact, in our household, we just don't drink. So, once in a while, if I really need to, it would be in small quantities. It's not that I don't like the stuff but I am quite annoyed with their side effects.

You know, pink faces, headaches, loud heartbeats, and the more serious repercussion: Gout.

Anyway, maybe it's due to age but tonight, I find that I can handle the 1% Shandies better without the normal side-effects. When I was small, drinking Anglia Shandy was like entering a new World. It tasted so unlike Coke, Root Beer or even Sarsi and yeah, that woozy feeling.

Is VeeChai Sipping or Guzzling?

So, how does this car of mine fared after all these years? It's a nimble little guy who can twist and turn in most Urban spaces, has the power when I needed it and most importantly, is quite economical to run.

The MyVi has already taught me to be a light-footer and use slopes to my advantage too. Maintenance so far, to me, is quite reasonable despite what others may say and its always by Perodua (well, 98% or the time). After more than five years, there would be some serious maintenance going its way soon.

What I love about the MyVi is that it does help save petrol on the condition that you know what you're doing. Here's a summary of what I am trying to say, or at last could recall:

Normal urban driving with Aircond on: 14.5Km/L
Highway driving with the Aircond on: 16Km/L
Highway driving with no Aircon but with OD: 18Km/L

Yeah, you got that right. It's due to the new driving style where I don't use the Aircond much. I drive to work in the morning, and return in the evening, where everything is cool, unless it rains. Then I need to switch the Aircond on to make sure the windows don't fog up.

Let's take the latest data. Last week, I pumped in RM50.00 worth of go-go juice which at RM2.30 per litre, gives me 21.74 litres in the tank, giving me 394.7Km of tarmac. That puts me at 18.15Km/Litres.

Just as long as I don't keep turning the OverDrive off. The BUTTON which you need to PRESS to turn it OFF for more TORQUE.

But acceleration is so much fun...
