It's been a full year since the first time I stepped into the driving seat with the intent of maneuvering the machine.
And what a year it has been!! Driving around Penang in only one type of car(the only carS I've ever driven are both made in Malaysia, both Perodua cars(screw Proton/EON for their money making schemes!!), the Kancil- also known as the 'milo tin on wheels' and the more reliable Myvi) has been quite an experience. Oh wait, there were those times when dad let me drive his 1996 Toyota Prado as well... big cars always have a feel-good factor affecting you, trust me.
I remember during my first few outings I couldn't really control my car yet, and I tend to step on the throttle when I reach sharp turns(yes, I managed to steer it...with a little bit of difficulty...but do not try this, because it IS a foolish move). Experience gained, I managed to get myself involved in one or two accidents that quite dented my confidence... but learn from it, and pick yourself back up, and of course, be more careful the next time =.=
I remember during my childhood years, when I was around 5 or 6, I would like to be seated in the driver's seat whenever dad went out of the car and called me to wait inside. Mum and Dad always warned me against even laying a finger on the gearbox.
Made me wonder why in my kiddy years :D
I would step on the throttle(right one in the picture below)and listen to the VROOOOOOOM sound humming from the engine of the car. And also don't forget the rising of the rpm meter as well XD
