round and round we go

Today i went for my second practical driving lesson.

Mr Ho drove me to a huge carpark in Yishun, somewhere near Kranji camp, and i practiced my clutch control again. At first, he changed gear for me, but while he was on the phone, i jumped at the opportunity to change it myself.

Finally, he taught me something new.

He told me go practice U-turning. I must have went round the carpark 30 times, but it was quite fun. I tried to go faster but everytime i even touched 1000 rpm, the old man stepped on his brakes, so in the end i gave up and drove very slowly.

My car died 3 times.

First time was when he told me to stop the car and i had to depress the clutch a little, then depress both the brakes and the clutch fully. I started with the clutch but forgot to follow it through with the brakes so the engine just died.

I can't remember what i did wrong for the other two times.

I kept smiling because everyone's been telling me that it'll happen and i finally experienced it.

This has been a very boring entry.

(i'm trying very hard to put things behind me, and not only with the incident, but with everything else. can you at least try to be more sensitive to my feelings and not just say things which might possibly hurt me, whether you meant it as a joke or not? everytime i try to tell you that i'm hurt, you get agitated. sighs. it's gonna be a difficult journey for us both.)

I don't want you to think of me as an eavesdropper so I'll just say that I'm listening to music instead of my neighbour's maid flirting with my other neighbour's driver.


I like it when people think of me as an intellectual so I will list a bunch of intellectual-sounding books here, even those I don't plan to read.


Since I can't list my porn collection here, I'll just leave it this way until I can force myself to watch non-pornographic stuff, which may or may not happen.
