Car wash…

When I was younger, I used to wash my car myself. It was spotlessly clean, not a speck of dust on it. That was why Stella, on one of her trips here, was shocked when she saw the state my car was in. I don’t get it washed very often but when it gets too dirty, I would just drive to a car wash. After all, it’s only RM10.00 each time.

Well, I have been to a number of places but the other day, I went to this one…

Car wash 1

…round the corner from my house…or if I use the back entrance (which would be the front entrance of the house), it is right at the end of the lane where I live. At most places, they would finish the job in a jiffy and sometimes, it was still wet at some places…or there was still a lot of dust inside the car around the dashboard…but the guy at this place took a long time – well over an hour!

In the meantime, I went to stroll around the shops in the vicinity. At one of them, I saw these…

Free gifts 1

Those must be the leftover or unclaimed complimentary gifts that were supposed to be given away free with the various products. I had no intention of getting any mugs, so I did not bother to check the prices but these soup/cereal bowls were RM2.90 each…

Free gifts 2

Now, I would think that was a bit too expensive. After all, they got them free in the first place. If it had been anything less than RM2.00, I might have bought a few.

Anyway, I was just browsing around, no intention of getting anything and after a while, I went back to the car wash…

Car wash 2

…and waited…and waited till it was done, all nice and clean! It certainly was a job well done and well worth the RM10.00.

Don’t worry! Nothing exciting happened at the car wash and definitely nothing like what you see in this hamburger commercial…

  1. Yay! I’m the first one today. Woohoo… πŸ˜€

    LOL!!! Because I saw on Facebook that you were up at 5.00 a.m. Wah!!! Doing your morning exercise or just plonked yourself in front of your computer? πŸ˜€

  2. Good morning Suituapui! Today’s post is about car wash huh? Well…I always help my wife to wash her car. LOL πŸ˜€ We seldom hit the car wash because there are too many cars there. We did go to the car wash twice this year. And I think it’s the same as the ones over there. Nowadays a lot of car wash claimed to use “snow wash”? Hehe πŸ˜€

    Morning! We’ve got lots of car wash shops here…and like this one, even in the housing areas. My old car – I don’t go often. Maybe once or twice a month or when it gets too dirty. RM10 only so not worth the trouble of washing myself, and anyway, too old and too fat to bend it like Paris Hilton! Hahahahahaha!

  3. And what’s with Paris Hilton car wash? LOL ;P

    Something (s)exciting to spice up your weekend!!! Carl’s Jr’s hamburger for others to drool over…if they are not into sexy chicks. Right, TOC? Hahahahahahaha!!!!!

  4. Snow Wash.. nice name.. sort of implicating gentle shower on yr car… last time i sent my car to caltex, cost me 11rm with vacumm sekali… but some are offering as low as 3rm.. i think that one is automatic car wash… anyway, never tried before cos sendiri wash better… what car polish do u use? i need to buy one to polish the scratches i made the other day lar…

    The “snow” refers to the white foam that they use to “shampoo” the car. We had one automatic car wash here – not very clean but fast and convenient. Spoilt already and we have not had one since – reminds me of the hot car wash scene in Ally McBeal. LOL!!! Can check that out on youtube… For superficial scratches (hasn’t gone through the undercoat), any wax polish will do…but use metallic ones only for metallic paints. Otherwise, you will just have to send to the paint shop!

  5. Damn… and i thought you did a Christina Aguilera and Missy Elliot at the car wash. hehehe.

    LOL!!! Don’t let your imagination run wild, young man! Hahahahaha!!!

    1. Eekks!! If STP did that.. it will be Queen Latifah… yes… Hi Pot.. this is Kettle.. hahaha

      Anyway… 1 hour for a car wash… I’ll pass

      Or Joanne Kam Po Po! I wonder what has happened to that woman! LOL!!! Well, 1 hour’s ok for me… I have all the time in the world! Hahahaha!!!

  6. Hahaha!!! I think if they have something like what’s in the video, the business will be so damn good πŸ˜›

    I can imagine! The queue will be miles long! Hey! You’re good at washing cars! Perhaps you can open a car wash and do a Paris Hilton! Gee! Rich in no time at all! Hahahahaha!!!

  7. I don’t have a car here in KK. So, no car wash! And I can claim myself to be an environment-friendly person. And a miserable citizen without a car! What a day – when people can spend 10 ringgit and see so many things without spending a “sense”, while I walk and use public transport. What’s more – the bus and taxi fares will be up from Aug 1 – between two sen to RM10! Should not check your blog so early in the morning! LOL

    You can have any car, as many as you want…anytime! LOL!!! And I’m sure your staff there will be more that willing to give you a lift to anywhere you want to go. Haiz!!! Some people have all the luck in the world! Hahahahahaha!!!

  8. Yucks!Paris Hilton,I am no TOC but I don’t like Paris H. either, give me angelina jolie anytime or best still Brad or Clooney doing the car wash!LOL! Which reminds me I also have to bring my car for a wash in the drive thru this afternoon before picking the kids. Now water restrictions still on, can’t wash our own cars.

    Gee!!! If I were to post a video of Pitt or Clooney acting sexy at a car wash, what on earth will people think? Of course, TOC would be delighted… Hahahahahaha!!!

  9. Good morning STP! When I saw those mugs pics, i thought the car wash sells them. LOL.

    LOL! No, they’re from the one of mini-supermarkets nearby… I just went browsing.

  10. one hour for a car wash is too long for me…..

    I’ve been to faster ones…and then you find places that are still wet and inside, around the vents and the corners – all the thick dust not wiped away! But of course, since I’m too lazy to wash myself, I couldn’t complain… Better than not getting it washed at all!

  11. Oh so you already had your car washed at our neighbor’s house? And I thought I’d be the first, lol!

    Sure is a convenience to be able to have your car washed properly, by your very own neighbor, kakaka~

    You! So young, fit and strong!!! No excuse for not washing your own car! Hahahahaha!!!

  12. SIR!!!! still driving ur old proton wira??? when are you going to buy a new car??? hahaha

    When?…..When my kind and generous ex-students pass the hat around to collect enough money to buy me a nice new car! That should give you a fair idea as to when that will be – NEVER!!! Hahahahahahaa!!!!

  13. If the service is good, then should be worth the money.
    I had a bad experience before with the one in Relau which they broke my water sprinkler for the windscreen and my adjustable plastic aircond in the car. No idea what you call that.
    Can you believe that?
    I promise to myself I won’t go there anymore.

    I love the mugs!
    Do you think the cereal bowl is enough for you? LOL

    Ya, some places here, they employ those young boys – school dropouts who do not seem very reliable and the bosses do not supervise. I wouldn’t wanna go to such places. Ah well…if it’s not big enough, I can always have a second helping…and a third…and a fourth… Hahahahahaha!!!

  14. 1 hour for a car wash? I think that’s too long for me! Unless got other things to do while waiting!

    Maybe they should have a small eatery to make some side income from customers who are waiting there. Haha!

    Talking about car wash, I haven’t been sending my car to the car wash for a very long time! Can’ even remember when was the last time I sent it over! Maybe 6 months ago? LOL!

    Yeah, they should. At places where there’s a coffee shop nearby, I would go over for a drink and something to eat while waiting but unfortunately, there’s none around this one. There’s a hair salon though…so next time, I can go for a shampoo at the same time. Kill two birds with one stone… Gosh! You’re so young – should wash your own car yourself! LOL!!!

    P.S. Your site’s affected by “malware” (That’s a virus, I guess?)…so I had to go “back to safety” before I could post a comment.

  15. What’s inside the hamburger commercial ? Hehehe

    Youtube blocked on campus? …..A skimpily-leather clad Paris Hilton in all sorts of suggestive poses! Don’t watch!!! Hahahahaha!!!!
