Did I just buy a car?

Yup.

Today I bought a VW Golf 103 TDI..

Deposit paid…

The only problem is I don’t know the colour.. =_=; Why did I have to go today on a public holiday when they can’t check with the supplier??

I put down my preferences in order for United Grey, Deep Pearl Black and Candy White. Note, I didn’t want the 3rd option (being white) so why did I go with one again? Damn you dealer, as nice as you may seem you did trick me didn’t you? Well.. it was my first time buying one independently.. *excuses*

Also being a girl who frequently changes her mind also does not help! Originally was going for black (it looks smexy~) but experiences tells me its too hard to keep clean!! So in comes the choice of  grey being the alternative and white being forced option because I don’t particularly like silver or light blue.

It’s like waiting to find out whether my baby is going to be a boy or a girl or an alien o_o!

Will find out tomorrow!! Meanwhile I’m going to try to pray for grey, the in between of black and white XD

Car on fire

I was going to do a very belated birthday photo post~ actually almost 1 month since..  coz well..

Life. It happens. XD

Like what happened to my car just last Saturday. It was on fire.

I’m okay though but my car is a total write off. My first car too, only 5.5 years old… so sad. How did it happen??

Apparently.. something to do with the oil cap being missing! That is very important. Not that I messed with it, actually I have no clue why this happened to me since I don’t look under the bonnet unless I’m filling the windscreen wiper water. Lucky I pulled off into a service station where the smoke from my bonnet alerted an off duty fireman and police man to come help me!

My boss also was near by and came to organise the rest of my work day and help out (as I was traveling to work at the time). Although I did get told off (nicely XD) my the station manager that if it happens again I shouldn’t pull into the service station (she did praise my because I did park away from the pumps!!) because they had to shut the pumps due to the possibility of an explosion o_o~

Still it’s good because going there I managed to find a lot of people to help me and I’d still do it again if *touch wood* it happened again! Wish I could have thanked those people properly but I was on the phone the entire time =_= Probably something they are used to at accident scenes!

So here’s the bad photos I took yesterday with my ipad2 when I went to collect my personal belongings from the car (as it now belongs to the State government XD) to mourn the lost of my Holden Astra

Looking perfectly fine on the outside ~ almost like new!

but like they say ~ its whats on the inside that counts!

So now what? Well .. its time to look for a new car~ Suggestions are most welcome! I’m currently thinking about upgrading to an Audi A3 or a VW Golf/Polo depending on what amount I’m willing to spend~

So I guess this happening has a good side to it. I got back from the insurance more than I expected and will end up with a new car and a valuable lesson learnt! First time I had to deal with a breakdown on my own, I now know what to do and surprisingly, I wasn’t freaked out at the time but looking back I do feel a bit traumatised knowing it could have been worse.

Very overwhelming when you are by yourself because you will be constantly on the phone to the insurance/towing/family and trying to talk to all the people at the site helping out.

Hmm, I started off wanting to do a birthday photo post and it ended up being all about my car. So I shall just dedicate this entire post to the happenings on my car since I think happy things should deserve its own post too.

Hello iPad 2, how I compare thee

Hi all~ today I’m bringing you a blog post from my *new* iPad 2! Which I was very lucky to get from my beloved family and friends ^^* THANK YOU ~! ♥

iHika came to life 11.11pm Friday 29th weighing in at 613 grams and although not big at 16Gb – its not the size that matters its how you use it !

My brother was holding it at the time it woke which I saw was 11.11pm so I quickly grabbed it off him to take a screenshot but it changed to 11.12 D:

After I handed it back, he was trying to slide to “unlock” the screen but it wasn’t working because he was on the screenshot photo *LOL* nice job me hahaha~

OH! Hello world I has no sim card – this is the screenshot photo lol actually taken yesterday

Yes, I still have the wrapping around it and made a slit for the plug to go in XD ~ Need to leave it good condition until I get a screen protector and cover of some sort..

I also don’t have a stand yet.. but Yoshi makes a cute and practical stand plus he’s huggable =3 and FACT – I got Yoshi last year for my birthday from my bro Shin ! Yup~ I waste my time reading a lot of Flipboard..

(more…)

Love love ekilove

Last month was a busy month for me~ it the midst of all that there were bigger things happening in the world.. Its all so sad… also I’m very relieved that people I know were not hurt and are okay and that there are lots of people supporting them.

One person being the lovely Eki ~ I couldn’t help but order when  her shop EkiLove was donating 75% of her proceeds to Japan which is always a good reason to spend money =3  Plus her handmade things are always so pretty~ On top of that there is free shipping for orders over $85 US and she includes a sheetmask and nail stickers as free gifts.

Ordered a total of 4 items but I only took photos of two of them ^^; One was a gift – it was the Love Neko necklace and the other was the Vintage floral bow headband – I was wearing it at the time XD

Everything comes nicely packaged *happy*

Sparkle Sparkle!! Moon and Star necklace / Elegant Hime bracelet

Please support EkiLove and Japan

I’m sure Japan is on its way to getting back to normal soon, they are so efficient like that! Must make my 7th visit there soon =3 Perhaps when my brother Shin finally gets over there in October! ((Even though you were suppose to go this month in April – it was the best decision for parent’s piece of mind Mum and Dad will be happier knowing you are safe.))

Pray for a better 2011 and no impending doom in 2012!!

MIA for 2 months

So…

.. been out of action for about 2 months now.. what the heck have I been doing with myself~?

1. work issues – may be getting my own shop soon?

2. family issues – 3 family members been in hospital

3. life issues – energy out to the first 1,2 issues leaves me with not much motivation for anything else – including hika-p.com

Three things that make life life right? Oh and in the middle of all that I did take a very short holiday to Malaysia and Singapore.. so…

Will starting posting more shortly~! Things are starting to get back to normal so check back in a week?

Here’s a picture to entertain you in the meantime
