Baby you canNOT drive my car (ever)

Among the many dreams that I have, one of them included driving my very own first car. The things I have planned for my baby and I to do together, the blings I'll accessorize her with, the places she and I will travel to. Haha. ;D

I'm no expert of cars. To me it's just another shiny (if I have it my way) accessory whose sole purpose is getting me from point A to point B safely and in style. So if you're a guy and you're reading this, forgive me and my lack of knowledge regarding automotive. Because as long as the car is red (as in bright shiny red), compact and looks nowhere near a Jeep Wrangler then I hardly care less about trivial things like torques, engines and acceleration performances. Which is why I've enlisted the help of my dad and Rashid (the only guy friend I know who has vast knowledge about all things automotive) when the time finally comes for me to shop for a car. They can worry about all those technical stuff. =D

When I was a teenager I was in love with a Lexus, specifically the RX350 model. I have a thing for cars with big *ahem* butts. The bigger the boot, the more I could squeeze in my shopping bags. Of course, I was too "young" to know about the harsh facts of life that unless I marry myself to a Tan Sri (preferably son of a Tan Sri) there's no way I'd ever have a Lexus parked in my garage before I reach 30.

Then a few years ago I developed an obsession for a girl's car. Because they're kind of cute, small and usually come with a big rear end. Heh, no pun intended to all girls. And I just love a chick car in red. (Being that red is my favourite colour).

There was the Volkswagen Beetle. Come on, how can you not fall in love for a Beetle huh? It is so adorable that I had to smile almost dreamily each time I saw one passing by. A red shiny beetle is just the perfect statement a girl needs. Young, fun, gorgeous and in control. ;p

Then came Perodua MyVi. Malaysian cars never looked this good. Not since Proton Perdana anyway. It was love at first sight with that compact, red vehicle. *Sighing wistfully*

There was also the Suzuki Swift. Kind of edgy but still fun looking. The price however made me think twice about possible future purchasing.

And finally came Kia Picanto. My friends told me about this actually. Something about Naza Kia doing a promotion to make it a more affordable car. Hey, as long as it's not a fugly family car, mini and comes in red, I'm all game.

I might need a name for my baby. I've a friend who owns a white Kelisa and she calls her Snowy. Another friend named her orange Savvy Charlie. ;p
