There is a Hokkien saying that goes something like, “Chiat bee mm chai keh” or ‘Eat rice but dunno the price”. It applies 101% to me. We went to change four tyres today. Our credit cardd cannot get through because the computer line was down between the car tyre repair shop and their merchant bank. So, I asked my atm why not pay by cash. In all the din and noises, I earlier heard RM300+.
“Aiyor, pay cash lah.”
“You siao ah, where to find? I don’t carry so much.”
I stood up and offered my wallet. Damn belagak like dat ‘cos I have RM50 in my wallet mah…. LOL. It is RM300++ PER TYRE, woman! Duh! Where to dig out RM1,200++ from your pocket? Spare tyres, you got a lot lah.
In the end, my kids and I ended up as pawns whilst my atm ran to the nearest ATM to withdraw the money in a heavy downpour. *roll eyes*
Then, if water (sui) is any indication of plenty of money pouring in, we will be extremely rich. Few weeks back, my car was leaking from the clock. We thought it was just dripping some water from air-cond condensation but it turned into a waterfall (when the car was parked). So much so that the towel we left in the car soaked up gallons of water when we wringed it. Turned out that the sun roof has some pipes that was blocked by fallen leaves.
It rained like more than twelve hours today. And another car leaks. This time from the back roof. Haih…..this is what locally made cars are.
So, everybody, got buy 1280, taruh big-big in Da Ma Cai, Sports Toto, Magnum and illegal betting. If strike already, sponsor me a Satria Neo.
