sis Lucky, lakasan nga lang siguro ng loob talaga.. May times pa din talaga na may nginig tuhod moments ako esp kpag trucks and buses nkkasabay ko. I agree with you, hindi ko din pinapansin yung mga bully drivers, hindi ako nagpapaapekto khit minsan nabubusinahan ako:) sige sila na! lol:p

last day ko na tomorrow sa driving lessons ko... though kinakabahan pa rin ako at natatakot, i could say na mas naging confident ako ng konting konti kesa nung hubby ko yung nagtuturo sa akin...now, i would have to try driving our own car (crossing fingers) at sana makaya ko 'to...

Hay, ako naman kasi si taranta... Or baka natataranta lang ako dahil kasama ko si hubby everytime i drive, natatakot kasi ako sa kanya, minsan kasi nabubulyawan niya ko hehe...

Last night after watching a movie, ako nagdrive pauwi... Pumayag si hubby kasi he wants to see kung kaya ko magdrive pag gabi... Bago pa ko nakaalis sa pagkakapark, mga 3 times ako namatayan hahaha!  Di pa kasi ako masyadong marunong magreverse...

Sabi ko kay hubby gusto ko dalhin yung car ng di ko siya kasama... Ang sagot sa kin, "OK lang naman, basta wag lang ako makakareceive ng tawag......" Hahaha!

Ako, twice ako nagdriving school! Ang problem ko kasi is yung hanging andparking. Pero sabi nga nila, sa practice lang daw talaga gagaling. So kanina, nagpractice ako ng hanging sa subdivision namin. Pagconfident na ako, try ko na main road. Lakasan nga daw talaga ng loob. haaay... magkano ba yun? :D

Automatic na lang ang pinapadrive sa kin para di na ko mahirapan. Ngayon, mejo kaya ko ng ipark sa garage naman yung car. Dati kasi pinapagarahe ko pa sa iba. Parang ngayon, mas excited na ko magdrive sa highway. Sa susunod baka kaya ko ng dalhin sa duty yung car.  ;)

I drove at aguinaldo hiway the other night, walang laman ang highway kase it was midnight already.
Si hubby lasing so ako nagdrive, pero he was guiding me, as to switching gear, naka 4th gear ako pero 60-80kph lang takbo ko, kahit pala ganun mabilis na din ang takbo ng sasakyan, feeling ko sobrang bilis na....parang mas gusto kong may kasabayan na sasakyan kesa sa wala at solo ko ang kalsada, feeling ko kase parang liliparin ako hahaha.
Nakapagpark na din ako sa palengke hahaha, di ko lang kaya ang parallel paraking talaga.
Mga sis always practice driving kase pag ilang days di kayo nakapag drive, makakalimutan nyo na or parang maninibago ka ulit. Gaya now andito si hubby so sya lagi ang nagmamaneho.
So far he is proud of me na hehe, yung naka incline at traffic na pagmamaneho di ko pa nagagawa. Ok lang naka incline basta its moving, di ko kaya yung hihinto at aabante after ilang minutes hahaha feeling ko may maatrasan ako.

Tama practice lang ng practice at pasasaan ba at magagamay mo rin ang pagdadrive.  Been driving for almost 11 months now.  Di naman na ako kinakabahan masyado, mas kinakabahan ako na magmali ng daan at maligaw LOL!

^same tayo sis. hindi na ako takot magdrive pero takot akong maligaw kasi kung saan saan ako lumulusot. Nakakatuwa lang kasi minsan nakasunod na pala sa akin si hubby. Pati sya naliligaw na rin. :D

I can finally say that I have already overcome my fear of driving. Lakasan lang talaga ng loob. Nakaya ko na din magdrive sa EDSA pati sa Commonwealth. Nadadala ko na lagi yung car sa duty ko at everyday sa Commonwealth ang way ko. Parallel parking na lang ang di ko kaya. Convenient din kasi ang magdala ng car kung minsan kasi mas mabilis ang biyahe compared sa pag-commute kasi mejo matagal at mabagal.

I found the determination to drive when the need critically calls for it. My kids were about to start schooling and hubby's work required him to be a weekend father na lang. I needed to learn. So ayun, I enrolled in a driving school in QC. I practiced almost everyday routing quezon avenue to commonwealth, EDSA-BIR road, timog-west avenue. Whenever I got the chance, I practiced. In a few months time, kinaya ko ang EDSA, NLEX, SCTEX, provincial roads.

Feeling ko pag kinaya mo na ang EDSA, the rest will follow.

I was enrolled in driving school but never got the chance to attend it. Hubby's cousin taught me how to drive (I have a bit background) so navigation is easy peasy for me. Comment nya lang sa akin is "mapag bigay daw ako" lol! He trained me so well in parking, dun siya nag focus sa akin, gusto nya pa lage reverse parking ::) Pag kasama ko siya at nagpa-park ako medyo natetense ako kasi bumababa pa talaga siya sa sasakyan at nakatayo sa harap ko at pag may mali ako, sinesenyas nya sa kamay yung ikot ng manibela, na lalong nakakapagpalito sa akin ::) :P So, what I did, after I delivered my children to school nagpa-practice ako ng parking ko. Thank God okay na ako sa parking lalo na sa reverse parking, mas gusto ko yung isisingit ko siya, kesa sa walang katabi, kasi nawawala ako sa linya, lumalagpas  ::) parallel parking naman, okay narin sarili kong sikap hehe I have yet to overcome EDSA and NLEX can't wait :D

btw, isa sa mga natutunan ko, take your time, pag may nakapila sa likod mo or bumubusina, okay lang yun basta importante makapag drive ka ng tama. Dati kasi na iilang ako pag may naghihintay sa akin na mga sasakyan sa likod, hindi ko makapagdrive ng tama pag natetense ako ;D

^Same here Sis mas gusto ko mag park kapag may kotse na nakatabi, or beside sa poste kase yun yung guide ko.  Mas gusto ko rin reverse parking lalo na kung empty ang parking space, kase nakikita ko linya ng parking lane sa side mirror ko.  Basta ako sa side mirror lang talaga nakatingin kapag reverse parking.  Di ko masyadong type ang parallel hehe.

Dito naman sa Dubai ang kinatatakutan kong daan is Sheikh Zayed kase ang bibilis ng sasakyan. Pero naconquer ko na rin fear ko sa daan na yan hehe

^Same tayo Sis.  Ganyan din ako before.  Pero once na nasimulan mo na tuloy tuloy na yan.  Saka di ka naman pababayaan ng instructor mo.

My first class nakakaloka coz I have zero experience in driving...ang ginawa ng instructor ko pinadala agad sa akin yung kotse at kaunting briefing lang nung nasa car na.  Ngatog ako, tapos busy pa that time sa daan, at sa may Al Quoz pa (industrial area) kaya ang daming malalaking truck at bwiset na drivers.  Nakasurvive naman ako.

That's why you have to triple your road reflex and care kase minsan kahit gano tayo kaingat, yung nasa paligid naman natin ang hinde nag-iingat. Always be on the defensive side chaka lakihan mo palage ang tancha mo. Better safe than sorry.

Yung fear ko of driving wala na. More on natatakot lang ako maligaw, o kaya masiraan ng sasakyan, o kaya yung walang mahanapan na parking slot...
