Scheduled only 2 classes today to complete 600 and also to wake up early & have our Altis registered at the LTO. It’s a miracle – STICKERS ARE AVAILABLE! Apparently, motorists won’t get 3 pieces anymore – just this one, which should be placed on the windshield. However, the new plates I paid for 2-3 years ago are still not available, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be getting them. *rolls eyes*

I was supposed to go to SM Taytay for a foodie meetup earlier, but I had to absent myself because of some car problems, plus I could not access an Uber nor Grab car. Aside from an old battery, our Mazda is really old, so I will have him checked by our trusted mechanic on another day. I don’t want to let go of that car because of its sentimental value: I learned how to drive in it!

A few days ago, I noticed that the handbrake of our 17-year old (well-maintained, mind you hehe) Madza 323 wasn’t working properly, so I took him to our suking Petron service station this morning (also for its regular change oil/tune-up session). I was so lucky to have parked in a not so awkward position because once I did, oh no, he wouldn’t move any more! Super just in the nick of time! While examining the back tires, I asked one of the mechanics, “Kuya, anong papalitan?” (What needs to be changed?) He kept saying something that sounded like “freak show” or “friction.” I Iaughed so loud when I bought the needed parts; he said “BRAKE SHOE”! 😀

Change oil & tune-up for our well-maintained, still in good condition, almost 16-year old Mazda 323. 🙂

Relieved that one car registration is done; annoyed that there are no stickers yet (again, LTO?!).

Yesterday, I was supposed to use our Altis for my errands, but it wouldn’t start! I checked the receipt of our last car battery purchase to confirm my hunch that it was out of juice and voilà! It was purchased on September 12, 2010. I exercised my haggling skills and had a new battery delivered today. Thank you, Kuya Rick of BatParts Supply Company!

Claimed my Palmolive gift pack yesterday, opened it today. Good timing as I already need to stock up on shampoo, conditioner, and soap haha 😀 In the afternoon, I bought a new tire as I had to use the spare last week because of a flat tire. Driving without a spare is never an option. 🙂
