Many of my friends are getting their own cars while I am just an avid rider of public transportation and the loyal user of my parents' cars. No, I am not jealous with them although this is the new millennium's kind of peer pressure from my course mates; and I will never be such a jello unless I get my own SUV one day. And by SUV I mean big cars and big rides which I will try to purchase one day insyaallah ;)
Tell me how many of your friends in college or university who have got their own cars already? Well, many of my course mates have had this luxury of driving their own cars to the faculty, which is a good thing because they will always let other friends to carpool as well. They share their money for travel expenses such as fuel, toll, and car maintenance together; sometimes when it rains in Serdang they will come and pick me up at my residential college.
When I had to go out to Kuala Lumpur for work purposes especially attending events, shopping or food hunting, I would always rent the car for few hours with some other friends for our convenience. Sometimes when I feel like showing off to the public pretending like I am such a rich kid, I rent my friend's Proton Waja, the next day is another friend's Perodua MyVi or to be minimal at times I borrow another friend's Perodua Kancil and drive around town.
See...I am definitely not jealous of my friend's rezki and in fact I am making full use of their blessings. I really hope that more and more of my friends would get their own cars soon so that I would have a wider range of cars to select, maybe a different car for each day in a week? Can you spot the humor/sarcasm here because I am not jealous at all, believe me.
