Alright. Today I'm a bit free. No overtime and no business meeting. So, I went to car wash. Do not ask me why I don't wash myself, suppose you already have the answer. Or should I say I hate wasting water? :P
Around 4pm went out to car wash at Relau. Glad that mom and sister want to come along so I won't be so bored. I used to go to the car wash with machine just because I hate waiting. But sadly the one in Sungai Dua closed and I have no other solution but to go to the one that using hands. When I reached Relau, I realize that I haven't bought any snacks and drinks for waiting later. So, I went to the petrol station nearby and instead of buying some snacks and drinks I put petrol and pumped my tyres. Alright, the petrol was RM75 because still got some petrol before I filled in. That was not surprise with the oil price increment. But I was shock when I paid for the snacks and drinks. 4 drinks (2 coffees, 1 chrysanthemum tea, 1 ribena) and 2 chips cost me RM13. Can you imagine how expensive the foods now? Gosh!
I drove straight to the car wash. It was just opposite the petrol station. There were few Indian workers. I talked to one of them:
Me : Hello
Guy : Hello
Me : I want to wash and vacuum. How much and how long I have to wait?
Guy : Do you want to clean your engine too?
Me : No
Guy : RM10 and there are 5 cars queuing
Me : 5? How long I have to wait?
Guy : About 2 hours before your turn
Me : Alright then, guess I do not have choice
Waited under a tree with mom and sister enjoying our snacks and drinks. Even though we hide in the tree shade, trust me it was so hot! How I wish we have 4 seasons :P
Out of my expectation, it was faster than he told me. Thanks GOD! Last time when I went there, they washed first then vacuumed. This time they vacuumed first then washed. Whatever... as long as my car is clean I do not mind.
Do you wash your car yourself? If not, do you go to the car wash with machine or just bare hands?
