Beep Beep, Broom Broom

The much awaited driving lesson finally pushed through last Sunday night. I chose the time setting because 1.) Geoff would be asleep by then 2.) There are very few cars in our strip of practice area. First thing I asked Babe: Mag-aaway ba tayo after ng lessons naten? Sagot nya: Hindi naman siguro. Sabay smile  🙂

Babe mentioned that we will do the atras-abante lessons, and as he was backing the car out from the garage, I can’t take the smile off my face (sings “I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it! heehee!).

First lesson: Make sure everything is in place; side mirrors, seat is well adjusted,

Second: Be safe. Check the emergency break, and that the shift is in neutral. Start the engine and tapakan ang clutch (left) and brakes (center) at the same time.

Third: Shift feet from brakes to gas (right) very lightly while very slowly releasing the feet from the clutch.

Babe: Make sure dahan dahan ang apak sa gas, and the meter should not leave 1 1/2 gauge

Me: Ok (nakapako na ung mata sa meter gauge).

Babe: Then dahan dahan lang dapat yung release ng clutch para hindi ka mamatayan ng makina.

Me: Ok (dahan dahan na umapak sa gas, but released the clutch too soon) Sorry Babe!

Babe: Ok lang yan, basta dapat light lang.

Me: Ok (try again, mga 5 times, same pa din, kumakadyot pa din ung makina) Arrgh! One last Babe!

Babe: Ok (Napa-smile na lang, pero pawis na!)

Me: Trying my best, naka tutok pa din sa gauge, biglang napa-apak ng bongga sa gas! Shoot!

Babe: Babe! Buti na lang naka emergency brake pa tayo! Ambilis ng harurot nun!

Me: I know! Sorry! Sorry! Promise, one last na lang!

Me: Tried again, this time, umabante ng mga 5 inches, hindi namatay ang makina, pero nabigla na naman sa brakes. Screech!

Me: Ok na ako. Next time na lang ulit Babe (hehe!)

Babe: Giving me additional pointers, blah blah (nakalimutan ko na kasi), sabay sabi; Galing galing naman!

Me: Haha! Ang hirap pala mag drive!

Meet Leni :) Soon, matuto din akong magdrive (Bwahahaha!)

Meet Leni 🙂 Soon, matuto din akong magdrive (Bwahahaha!)

Weekend Visit and Babe’s New Baby

So, after a few days of not being able to post anything, here I am, ready to document some exciting and fun filled days we had.

Thursday, the new “babe” arrived. Babe was so ecstatic and just could not hide it. After wanting and lusting (lusting talaga? haha!) for so long, he finally have his hands on Z. Z is Babe’s new phone. It is a phone from Sony, and it is an Xperia Z model to be exact.

I like the phone because it is purple. According to the website, it is also waterproof, shatterproof, scratch proof, and baby proof. These “proofs” I have yet to test as the hubby does not want to take any chances in testing the device. The phone itself is fast and unlike the previous touch screen phone that he had, I find texting pretty easy with this phone. I also like that our Internet connection is cooperating, thus, Babe was able to install some games and applications that I liked.

Come Saturday, we went to Fairview to visit my sisters in law. In addition, Babe was also intent on having Leni (the car), fixed. Unfortunately, we were unable to have Leni checked, however, the little baby had fun.


Can you see the joy in the little boy’s face?


Thank you Tita Jen!

Side kwento: Since the main purpose of our visit was to have the car checked, Babe felt bad as it was really unfortunate that we were unable to do so. It was raining kind of hard and we heard this awful sound again, coming from the back of the car, bandang gulong. Babe suggested that we head back, and I asked what the next plan was after heading back. I’m not sure what happened, pero Babe still went on and drove real slow na lang until we could not hear the noise anymore. He had Leni checked the next day, and it turned out that the hub connecting one of the back wheel was loose, while one was cut into 2. It was pure luck that we were able to go home safely.
