Near Miss

The scene where a small Kancil reversing straight to my car as I was looking for a car park was still fresh on my mind. My car stopped behind this Kancil as I wanted to get into a nearby vacant car park, but the driver was unaware of my presence and took the liberty to reverse straight to the left of my car rear portion. I panicked and pressed the horn but the horn button on my Kelisa was rather small. Could not gave him the warning and to my horror, he drove right to me. I couldn't do anything and I could only see his car appearing closer and closer. My car jerked a little when his rear bumper touched mine.

Oh freak!! Gotta fork money to repair my car this time!!

Got down my car and checked the damage. Thank god that there was not a scratch or dent on my car!! Phew!! The driver got down and checked out his car, and then came to me.

Since both our car were not damaged in any way, so we considered our case closed.

But I was still shaking from the near miss incident. Things could go pretty ugly if he had reversed his car at a speed like a Formula One driver. What ever it is, I don't want my trusty lil' Kelisa to get into any accident at all. It has been almost one and half year since I last bought this car from a second hand dealer in Jalan Kuching.

It has served me well and I am satisfied with it. Never mind if it is a small car, as long as it can get me from point A to point B safely and reliably, I am satisfied. It may not be fast and does not has a sporty look, but I am glad it is economical and fuel efficient. Low car insurance, road tax, and consumes less fuel comparatively to other cars on the road. It has no fancy CD player or hi-fi car stereo, but a cassette/radio player is what has accompanied me throughout the time stucked in traffic jam or on a long journey outstation. This tiny car may get bullied occasionally on the road, but I am fine with it cause I will have the last laugh when it comes to hard-to-find-parking-spaces or in a narrow road.

Yeah, a wise decision to get myself this car. But need to be extra careful as this car has to brave itself against the big bad world out there. Have to defend it against the nincompoop Malaysia drivers who thinks that the road is a Formula One track!! Must protect it at all cost.
