Yesterday evening, we went to Queensnbay Mall. Son is driving. (he is 17 years and 3 mths, btw) He had driven several times with his friends but this is our first family car ride. Oooh…scary………It rained very heavily. There was a major jam along the coastal road but it was on the opposite direction. Due to something on the Penang bridge, I think.
So, I stole a photo with my ciplak handphone camera. Momentous mah. I did step on the imaginary brake (read the old post!) eventhough I was sitting at the back. I sat in the middle seat so that means I was terrified, okay? Nothing in front but the open space. His driving is okay with the pointers given by his papa and his daring nature. But it is too freaky for me, certainly. My two middle sons said “Kor-kor driving is better than yours lah. At least he go at the same speed (which is fast). Not like you, Ma. You suka-suka slow, suka-suka fast. Somemore kor-kor no G-force like papa. (G-force means you swing from right to left when the car turns.)”
It was a long, long ride due to the partial jam and the rainy condition. So, I teet-teet-teet and SMS.
“Woi, me riding son driving. Get your Penang ahbengs (tow truck operators) standby wokay?”
SMS reply from blue hair AhBeng taikor: “Need outrider escorts or not ar?”
On the way home, some of the roads were a bit flooded and he drove too fast and splash huge amount of water on people standing by the roadside. OMG, it wasn’t intentioally, so God bless them please. My son is n00b and cannot estimate the depth of the water and the damage it can cause. Sorry to those whose stall kena splashed with water and those people standing there to buy things in the rain. Manyak-manyak soli.
So there, another big leap forward to manhood for my kid. And a step forward for me as a mom.
