Boys & Their Toys

Being a new dad pretty much means me is cooped at home most weekends. So last Saturday night me decided it was good time to try out me new toy - a Black & Decker orbital polisher.

Started the wash at 10pm & since this was me debut effort with the machine, it took longer than the usual bicep-powered method. Careful not to scratch the surface, me managed to finally finish the polishing & waxing at the ungodly hour of 3am! (Neighbour thought me was fooking nuts).

But this was the result . . .


Not bad fer a first time if me says so meself . . .


Feeling quite pleased with the effort, there was enough time fer a "small" reward just before the crack of dawn.

ps: Of course, following tradition, if ye wash yer car, it will rain. And since me washed, polished & waxed the car, it fooking pissed down with rain the ENTIRE fooking Sunday . . . Ah well, good excuse to crack open a few more beers next weekend . . .

AD: Wow Macha... good job. Me too lazy to polish & wax me own car, so me just sends it to the car wash near me house.

RM 120 and he does an excellent job. He uses this sealant instead of normal wax...lasts longer. If you can match, next time i come to PuchongBala Car Care Centre lah. hehehehee

About the rain - yeah... i wanted to wash my car yesterday but it was pissing rain all day yesterday. So i said fook it...

PS: Read me blog. Got some updates on me life.

psychomocha said...

Fuyoooo.. Berkilat beb! When I get my Audi, I guess I can send it to your car centre lah and pay in installments. Haha. And did u really drink that much beer in the wee hours of the morn?

anfield devotee said...

premo: I tried me best . . . the beers I mean.

achilles: Used to send to car wash as well but with 4 cras, was getting a bit expensive. So me thought why not? Good way to work up a sweat as well don'tcha think?

bravosx: Just the one matey. Nothing fancy either, just some liquid off the counter brand. Will progress to more expensive products as me gets the hang of this.

psychomocha: Boleh boleh, fer Datin like ye tak de hal, bayaran ansuran boleh diatur.

senorita: Ah ha ha ha. Ye opening bikini car wash ah? Good luck. Sure good business.

Training? Yer customers aren't exactly gonna be the type who will be particularly focussed on quality finish. Just make sure there's plenty of water splashing on yer "workers" . . . cukup la tu, car dirty also nevermind.

nanda666 said...

Good job dude!!! Me gonna let go the beemer soon so no need to polish la...(Or maybe one last time to get better value!!hehehe!!)

So what do you recommend as a family car....the AUDI Q7 looks nice.....hehehe!!

anfield devotee said...

nanda: Yes, audi is nice.

And yes, do give yer bmw a once over & ye will create a better first impression. Most definitey worth the effort.

Do ye really need a "family car" since yer wifey already has a mpv?

FYI, sime darby are offering their last 2 Alfa GTs at a discount of RM205k (RM20k off). Very very nice car.

But if ye looking fer some fun on a budget, ye cannae go wrong with this: http://www.mudah.my/Fiat+coupe+turbo+20v-6423221.htm?last=1

Why waste money paying govt tax?

nanda666 said...

Wife's SUV good for around town only la...4 WD function is used for parking on a curb. (Closest thing to offroad!! hehehe!!)
Most probably gonna go with the Chevy Captiva 2.0 AWD Diesel that does 160km/hr at only 2000 revs!! At RM 160K, it will do great for the drives to tioman/perhentian/redang.
And no need to polish to much either!!! hehehehe!!

anfield devotee said...

nanda: polish tu up to individual owner la. Its called pride of ownership.
