P driver

Well, it was a breeze for my girl when she went for her 'undang-undang' test. She did in Malay and she fared well. Then came her driving lessons. She only had 5 two-hours lessons before she went for her driving test. Few days before her test day, her instructor asked me if I wanted to pay some bribe for her town driving. 

I told her that I never paid any bribes before for my other two girls. So I wouldn't do that for my youngest girl too. But I heard stories from others that the tester would purposely fail the learner at least once. Well, I wouldn't like that so I consulted my husband. He told me to just go ahead with their suggestion.

So I paid extra just to make sure my girl passed her driving in town. The parking and the slope testing would have to depend on herself. Luckily, she passed both the parking and the slope.

I was away when she did her test. I got her message that she passed! Great news. Of course, when I came back from my holidays, I let her tried my car Corolla with the manual gears. It was scary for me as she couldn't get used to it. I have to switch to my Unser which is automatic. That is fine for her.

I will let her practice now and then but I wouldn't let her drive to school as yet.

And four days ago was her birthday. I bought her a cake from other cake shop and not from my regular shop as we seemed to be buying the same kind of cake each year.

We love this cake very much. It's yummy as it's chocolatey with blueberry jam.

  2. Happy Belated Birthday to your youngest daughter! Since your two daughters passed their driving exams without any bribes, I believe your youngest daughter would be able to pass without the bribe too.

    2. Didn't your 2 older daughters take their driving exam at the same test center? You mean last time they did not do this (fail those who did not give extra) and now they do?

  21. even when I got my license, my uncle bribe them
    so we, me and her wife could get a license even
    without doing the practical exam

  22. hmm i think you did the right thing
    although it wasn't right at all,
    i mean even if your girl's skill was enough
    it would be wasted because that scumbag will
    fail her
