09.00 am – Had breakfast.

09.30 am – Filled in RM50 worth of Petrol.

Pumped in about

250kPa worth of pressure to all four tyres.

Went back to Hoe Hin, the car workshop I do not like going to but have to,

located opposite Lam Wah Ee

to let Mr Hoe Hin fix his mistake.

The visual difference from when I gave Hoe Hin the car last Wednesday was the semi-fixed scratch,

fixed front right bumper and

the fixed, smooth car doors.

The things that were left untouched was the back right bumper and

the missing 2.

(PS : Do you know where I can fix number plates for a reasonable price in Penang?)

Kiam chai boey.

Nescafe coffee.
