30th May 2007 - Opel Manta... Part 2

sorry for the delay....

_______________________________________________________________________________

we reached Kampar at about 11am.... Rajen wants to eat... again.. come on man.. we just had breakfast before getting on the Metro bus... We walked over to the 'food court'... it's only about 2 minutes walk... the place is huge... didn't take any photos of that place... i regret not bringing along my digital camera...

We sat down at one corner of the whole place...ordered our food.. Rajen had the cheapest Char Koay Teow in Malaysia... I had some Hor Fun...

-> Rajen's food... the Char Koay Teow is only RM 2 man.. it's the same bloody price with the bus ticket to kota raya... ahahhaha

While eating , Rajen called the seller , Mr Peter , and asked him to meet us at the food court.... we finished eating , we went outside to see if he's there... after about 20 seconds , Mr Peter came honking in the soon-to-be-Rajen's Manta...

The car is cool... very old school... nothing is changed on the outside... still original.. Peter is suprised to see that me too have a goatee... can't a chinese man have facial hair??? he seems to be a nice person... then we went on to the car registration people to change the ownership of the car to Rajen... everything is so near in Kampar... it's just like a 2 minutes drive away..

We were there for about 45 minutes... Peter talked alot... maybe a bit too much.. i got bored at times... but he said something which made an impression... he said that we're still very young and 'WE HAVE GOT Nothing TO LOSE!!!'... very very true.... anyway , he got that phrase from some local TV game show...

We went back to Peter's house to lepak after that... again.. it's about 2 minutes drive... oh yeah... for the whole journey in the manta , i was at the back seat... it's like a freaking moving sauna man... and as a champion , I wore a black 'Saosin' t-shirt... which helped me absorb more heat from the direct sunlight... -you've got to pay to look cool in a black t-shirt

Peter's wife gave us 100 plus to drink (thank god)... they are a simple family.. simple house , helping their children to babysit their grandchildren while the baby's parent works in KL... their daughter is working in singapore...

Peter showed Rajen some vital information on how to operate that delicate piece of 'junk' called Manta.... Rajen will be the third owner... it's almost a 30 years old car... all the parts are still the original parts... of course it's delicate... it looks fragile from certain angle...



-> Mr Peter...the friendly con artist in disguise..

-> Mustang look-alike...

-> mean , lean , machine...


-> the logo damn cool right??

ok... this post is abit too long... damn bosan for me to type already...i've sum it up quickly ok...

After Peter's house , Rajen wanted to drive to 'town' again to change the engine oil and everything else...but the driver's seat just won't budge.. end up , Peter drove us again...

We changed the engine oil , air filter , i think that's all... oh yeah.. the engine oil change only cost Rajen RM 5 for his workmanship... We had lunch (eat again... i think there's seriously nothing much to do in Kampar besides eating...) saw 2 cute cute girls at the restaurant.. as usual , didn't do anything regarding that...

-> the engine...

-> the car with the hood opened...

-> The sohai with the car..

-> the mechanics..






-> the side view..


Now it's time for Rajen to drive..

RAJEN!!! you continue from here....

V|vac|ous said...

Of course China man can have facial hair think olden days emperors dynasty. Chinese Drama as seen on tv ! They they fly here n there ! Even kill bill the china man has really really long facial hair.

peter is not a sohai... that caption refers to the picture where Rajen is next to the manta...

i dunno how to arrange the photos and caption properly... that's why the uploading tools for Blogger sucks...

Gregs said...

Wah, she's got a nice heart. Between rajen and peter she assumes the sohai is the latter. Lets be honest, between all of us here, when you mention the sohai with the car, we faham faham on who u are referring to already lah.
