More Driving Self-Reminders

Stopping and Moving on a hill slope (upwards):
1. Step on the accelerator.
2. When coming to a stop, Clutch, Brake, free gear and handbrake.
3. To move again, Clutch, Gear 1, Accelerator and hold, Release Cltuch halfway and hold, release handbrake.

Under normal circumstances, after getting into gear, release handbrake, then go for the accelerator.

Three-point turn:
1. Enter close to the left-hand side. Turn right at almost 90 degree angle, so that the car is facing the right fully, stop. Free gear.
2. Turn the wheels to the left fully (four 360 degree turns of the steering wheel, I think). Get in Reverse gear. Move, then stop at an appropriate distance.
3. Turn right fully and then get into Gear 1 and go.

Parallel parking:
1. Go right next to the first pole. Move forward by keeping an eye on that first pole by looking backwards. Keep on going until the fills one side of the back window. Stop.
2. Turn the steering wheel at a 360 degree once to the left. Get into Reverse gear. Keep your eye on the right side view mirror, making sure that the back tire touches the white line of the parking box. The tire should not be too far outside the line, or too far inside the line, it should be ON the line. Stop.
3. Turn the steering wheel fully to the right. Still in Reverse gear, move while keeping an eye out so that the back of the car does not hit the pole. Stop.
4. If the car is less 'senget', turn left at 360 degree angle twice, if it is very 'senget', turn left fully. Get into Gear 1 and move forward slowly until the middle pole is aligned to the middle of your car, stop. Straighten the tires.

To get out of the parking box, Turn left once or twice and reverse, keeping an eye out for the back poles. Stop, then turn right fully, in Gear 1, move out slowly.

Betrayed by the worst atrociously shameful mark of femininity, the shy, embarrassed, immature, self-conscious, awkward, school girl blush in the presence of a drop dead attractive member of the opposite sex. *facepalm* I'm gonna be fricking 21 years old, hormones, please stabilize.

If you have not read this book, get you hands on it quick!
Yes, I'm serious, it is that good.

simply because it is unforgivingly, brutally honest.
What I love of this book is basically the fact that not a single word has gone to waste. Every single description is relevant, and makes for a pinpoint analogy of each scenario in the book. When you traverse each sentence, you already have an idea what the author is trying to portray in the way he describes what the characters do, wear, walk, talk. the simple gestures represent the very soul of the culture so imminently depicted in this book.
And the main character, Balram, seems so real that you could almost believe that he actually runs around in the streets, er, slums of India. The complexity of emotions and the inner turmoil he felt as he expresses his views on the issues.
The author's ideas of a new-age caste of small-bellied and big-bellied people and the Rooster Coop has been compellingly displayed along the storyline, and y…

Sang Bayu Membisikkan Rinduku Kepada Samudera Cinta-Nya

Menatap kebiruan
yang disulam hijau permata
hamparan keindahan luar biasa

Mutiara jernih
ibarat sungai yang berlari
membasahi pipi
sekali sekala jatuh ke pasir

bayu dingin yang mengelus
membelai-belai wajahnya yang lesu
muram dek cuaca yang mendung
awan-awan kelabu
membaluti langit yang biru,
suram di lubuk kalbunya

meronta-ronta hatinya
mencari nikmat ketenangan

meronta-ronta jiwanya
mencari kebenaran hakiki

ingin saja disapu
debu-debu penipuan
yang mengaburi pandangan mata hatinya

rindunya pada Kasih yang suci menggamit lagi

ampunilah hamba yang hina ini.
