*Malaysian’sDriver

Malaysian’s drivers are absolutely discourteous. We call ourselves chivalrous but on the contrary, we are. I despise drivers, who are boorish, intolerant, arrogant and think that they own the road! I am neither an expert driver (based on my previous drift experience) nor a very polite one but I still consider other drivers.Since I am a part-time driver for the sem break(I drive my two little sisters to school)these what have I encountered:

Firstly, I don’t jump queue and maneuver easily, I respect other cars

Secondly, I rarely honk at other drivers’ coz I can’t be honked as I get scare effortlessly whenever people honk at me.

Thirdly, I smile. Yes I put on a bright smile. Because you see in my urban village, the road here are all narrow-even tho many actions have been taken to broaden them-so it is a huge possibilities to stumble upon other cars from a difference way. Whenever this happens, one has to retreat or give way and every time people make way for me to go first, I smile at them or nod.

However, the thing is with our drivers are (parallel to the above):

1st: They think they own the road so they jump queue as if they are the only tax payer in Malaysia. I detest this kind of driver.

2nd: Our drivers are indeed kind, they honk a lot to make us realize or make us awake even the honking sound is not necessary, at all. As if, they are the only person who is in a hurry! Duh!

3rd: We smile or nod as a token of appreciation if somebody makes way for us to go first. I always smile but it is not been replied reciprocate-ly. I feel like a stupid clown whenever I put on my brightest smile no matter it is them or me who give way. Nod or smile Sir, it’s easy, not just speeding and paying no heed to the one who is so kind to make way for you!

I don’t care if u ride a luxurious car or whatever car it is but respect, it’s all that matters.

Mdm Norsiah: How much do u spend for all the accessories??

Me: Countless mam, countless..it somehow boosts up my self-confidence.

Madam Norsiah once asked me during our 3rd test. I was flattered. A lecturer ask on my dressing, my style. The accessories she pointed were my 2 rings, my right-hand glove, my lock-shaped necklace,a couple of bangles, my silver-stud belt and of course my black eyeliner. However, my black painted nails, my stripe pink scarf, my three types of bandanna, my left-hand gloves are excluded as I don’t wear them that day. The way she laugh was an indicator that she was amazed of this student of hers. I think.

I don’t consider myself as an emo. Perhaps because my hair is not truly emo yet(sigh..sigh). Call me freak, weirdo, I care not.Because this is Me. I always stumble upon this situation where people often forget my name but they say the remember my style very well. See, one doesn’t have to be outspoken or ‘mencapub’ to get attention. Each and every time I walk pass the TESL square, always these couple of eyes will stare at me. I would retort with my smile regardless the way their stares are. Smile is the best technique to win a heart, I read that in a book.
