It's hard to say Goodbye

I finally sent my 'Min Pau' car off to the 2nd hand car sales dealer yesterday *sob* I never really expect my heart to be this broken having to trade my car for a new one. As i was leaving the place, i caught a final glimpse of it parked at the side of the road, and i can feel one part of myself being torn away *tears*

Hubba was teasing me crazy about how i always get so attached to 'things' and i have to learn to 'let go' because it is all part of life. 'But it was my first car...' i whimpered ;(

5 years ago, mom talked (forced) me into getting my own car because she doesn't want me to hog onto her car. I was pretty reluctant because i was earning peanuts (still am, only my peanuts have become cashew nuts now) and i really HATE driving in Malaysia because Malaysians are generally bitchy drivers and one can just die while trying to get a parking.

Nevertheless, i still got myself a car, bought with my own hard earned money and i loved it to bits because it was my 'perfect' little 'min pau' (bread) car. Not because i had to eat bread to support it (lol) but because it does look like a loaf of bread! XD And it's been a full 5 years of togetherness. Anyway... before i bid her final farewell, i made sure i had memories of her from all angle...

Unusually empty. On my way to send her away...


Everything i will miss about her...
From feeding her to taking a sneak peek from the outside to check if i've locked her up safely...


The paper work to transfer the car ownership, and new paper work for my new partner in crime (coming soon).


And whenever i see a loaf of bread now, my heart will ache a little.


*sob* i miss you 'min pau'...
