Our Wish was slightly overdue for its service so as we were planning to ziarah MidValley, we decided to take care of this @ Mutiara near d Old Klng Rd area with Awateef tagging along. Later we had our lunch @ Mid n I also came across a Mazda exhibition there. Took some time to browse thru Mazda's latest offerings while my Sayang n Awateef were busying themselves in Jusco. N as a result of Fahim's urged to gently touch a vehicle in front of him recently, I took d car for a minor body massage in d afternoon @ Sg Rasah. Looks like today is revolving around our rides huhh
Mutiara...this place really looked like a Wish Clinic...all of d cars being treated when we were there were Wishes n in various degree of mods.
@ Mid later...lunch time @ Kenny Rogers...it was only about noon but d perut dah berkeroncong...may be due to waiting time @ Mutiara earlier. BTW...I was wondering why keroncong was chosen to symbolise when we r hungry...why not ghazal, dondang sayang, boria (d Sg Pinang one of course) or dikir barat...
n at one end of Mid, d Mazda xhibit is on...with people seating, touching n imagining things here n there
...but d star of d show must be d new facelifted RX8...with d amazing 1.3 (yes...it was that small) rotary engine. I tried out d back seat...n it was quite ok provided d driver is not too tall
n putting on JC mode here (Jeremy Clarkson laa)...d multi-function steering wheel of d Mazda6 really is a laugh...looks like it was done by someone who did not finish his design school. It really has d look of d controller of boomboxes from d 80s favored by breakdancing crew then... hihi (si JC ni kan memang suka kutuk kaw-kaw). N to ask u to part with RM178k for this is really something...but driving-wise it may not disappoint as much. N d salesguy even urged me to go to his branch for a test drive.
a case in point...just compare it with d Merc's steering...simple kann. This was taken much later...when Fahim picked me up from Sg Rasah
but back at Mid...b4 heading home...a pit stop @ Big Apple jap...for some NY-finest favourite snacks...donuts
@ d Gardens...d Xmas deco r oredi on display...n may be Mid will follow suit soon kott
