Jazzing into 2017

Happy New Year, y’all! It’s been a while since I’ve updated. I know, it’s entirely my fault for neglecting updates on Singcarpore. But, life happens. Yes, that’s another excuse. Why can’t I stop making ’em? No, I don’t make excuses.

So, what’s happened? The Jazz has since gotten into 2 accidents, 1 minor (I smooched the rear of a VW along the PIE-CTE (AMK), and 1 major–I got sandwiched between 2 vehicles along the BKE driving behind a Maxi Cab with a loaded van trailing me. That happened during peak hours. In that incident, a motorcycle fell and all vehicles behind the motorcycle braked in time except for the van behind me.

Suffice to say, I got rear ended into the bum of the Maxi Cab (who ferried passengers!) I’ve since received a letter from the police stating that the van was at fault.

At times, I think I should just stick to public transport. See, the Jazz acquired scrapes on the front right lip and left side skirt–the same sideĀ also fell off in and unfortunate incident. I’ve also had my the front lip crushed on December 31st, 2016.

I used a plastic bag to hold the skirt and prevent it from falling.

I know, what a way to end the year.

Note to self, when the carpark is full, do not attempt to go up a makeshift ramp when the angle is blatantly steeper than what your clearance can handle. I’m looking at you, Popeyes @ Tebing Lane.

The lip couldn’t be saved.

But you know what? It’s nothing. Scrapes, bumpers, lips, fenders, skirts–they can all be repaired. What matters is that I am here, very much alive and writing.

And I thank you all for reading my humble blog. I am by no means a car enthusiast. What do I know really? But, stick around, and let’s put a little spin on automotive-things in Singapore, on Singcarpore.

P.S. I will create a category and talk about cars I will never get to drive in Singapore. Because my pockets don’t run deep and I am but a mere peasant.

See y’all in 2017! Wait, we’re already here. See y’all, again!
