^sis,lakasan lang ng loob ang driving lalo na pag manual kase may tendency na mamatayan ka ng makina pag kulang ang tapak mo sa clutch, ako kase if hindi ako naglakas loob eh hindi ako matututo.

when iniwan ni hubby yung car sa office ko kase may lakad siya eh i drove it. malakas lang talaga ang loob ko. tinuruan na naman niya ako eh kaya alam kong kaya ko na. kaya ikaw sis, kaya mo rin.

Wag kayo masyado ma conscious, madami malalakas mang asar, kahit mga hindi marunong mag drive aasarin ka (yung tipong gusto mo sabihin, ikaw kaya mag drive?). Masyado mabagal, nasisingitan, namamatayan, kinakabahan, etc.

Basta ikaw may hawak ng manibela, ikaw ang bida. ;)

^that's the right spirit. for me not to be swayed by my disappointment whenever engine dies on me, i always remind myself that those who're seemingly critical of noob drivers were once novices themselves, baka mas grabe pa sila hehe.

 Especially in this country where the overwhelming gender bias against lady drivers makes it more challenging to confront and come to terms with manila roads and the manual machine. Haay, I really need to conquer my machine :(

Kakatuwa naman meron in palang kagaya ko na frustrated driver kaso lang until now hindi ko pa rin kaya. lakas ng loob pa lang kulang na kulang na ako. super natatakot ako na parang masasagi ko yung mga nasa gilid ko. 3 times pa lang ako nag try, si hub instructor ko pero hindi ko kaya though i have a feeling na hindi magaling magturo hubby ko.

I still have fe more months to learn how to drive kasi we'll be migrating to another country and being able to drive is a must! Hinahanda ko pa sarili ko sana by next year mawala na ang kaba whenever hawak ko na ang manibela.
i love life..

join ako mga sis. ;)

nakakafrustrate talaga sa una, lalo na kapag namamatayan ng makina. one week straight na akong nagpapractice driving, pero problema ko talaga yung pagdating sa mga intersection na kelangan mag stop, laging bitin ang pag stop ko sa mga markings kase daw nagneneutral ako agad agad.. natatakot kase akong lumagpas sa stop light hehe.

ako nga sis matagal napahinga pero nung nagdrive ako uli eh okay naman. namatayan nga ako ng engine pero deadma lang. lahat naman ng nagddrive eh namamatayan ng engine kahit once in their lives and lahat naman eh nagdrive eh nagstart sa ganun.

_sugarnspice_, ako rin sis, I hate intersections kase nakakabitin diba? pero sanayan narin lang siguro. basta ako pag nakaneutral & hand break, tapos pag malapit na ako mag- go eh ilipat ko na ng 1st gear before ko release yung handbreak... para may bwelo ako agad...

ako kase sis pag sa stoplights, pag last few seconds ready to go na ako para hindi ako mabitin or businahan ng mga nasa likod ko. alam mo naman ang mga lalaki, pag nakitang lady driver ang nasa harap eh iba ang ugali ng mga yun... akala nila hindi us magagaling...

^^^Pag kunyari mabagal yung nasa harap mo tapos binusinahan ka ng nasa likod mo, aba eh businahan mo din nasa harap mo. Ikaw nasisisi wala ka naman kasalanan hehe. Parang pass the message lang.

another lady driver here. sa lahat ng bagay sa buhay ang pinaka-importante ay ang lakas ng loob. the same goes for driving.

i was a late bloomer when it comes to driving. all my brothers and sister learned to drive at the legal age for a driving license. i never learned to drive until i was 25. so kung tutuusin nerbyosa na ako at that time kasi mas maganda matutunan ang pagdadrive at your adolescent age kasi mas malakas ang loob mo.

i had a nonpro license just for id before. pero i know kung paano mag-atras abante. and with all the pangarals na narinig ko na while my father is teaching my siblings, alam ko na lahat - by theory. one time, i asked papa na dadalhin ko yung sasakyan to a friend na malapit lang. pero ang totoo from valenzuela to paranaque nagdrive ako. with boyfriend beside me who knows nothing about driving. ang joke noon sa amin ng papa ko, "nakabalik!" well, kasi daw he thought hindi ako makakabalik. LOL!

and so there, i am still driving now. not as fast and the furious as my siblings pero i drive. lalo na nun manganak ako. mas bumagal pa ko magdrive.

haysst! sa mga pabusi-busina, lalo ko binabagalan kapag bumubusina. minsan mainitin rin ulo ko pag magdrive. pero binabawasan ko na ngayon, kasi kapag napapamura ako, ginagaya ng anak ko kaya stop na. hehe!

nakakaaliw lang ang mga expression ng mga mukha nila kapag nagitgit mo tapos makikita nila lady driver.

oh, one more thing. i remembered from the news sabi nila hindi daw kaya ng babae magdrive ng bus. wth! hindi ako naniniwala. baka panisin pa natin sila. kaya mga girls, itaas ang bandila! hehe!
