^Minsan naisip ko gawin yan. Pag binusinahan ako bigla akong pe-preno (reasonable distance ha wag naman yung gitgitan na wala na time mag preno nasa likod mo). Kaya lang baka mabangga pa ko sa pagkamaldita ko. ;D

Madali lang daw mag drive ng bus, magaan ang manibela. Yung haba lang ang problema.

okay lang na businahan ako pero wag lang yung talagang tuloy tuloy. yung mga iba kase ganyan eh.

once ginawa na sa akin yung todo busina, as in sunod sunod talaga, sa sobrang inis ko super binagalan ko talaga yung pagdrive ko and when magoovertake na siya eh binilisan ko talaga at naiwan siya. naalala ko pa nun, nung oovertake na siya pinatay ko aircon na car para mas magaan ang takbo + inopen ko window ko para makita niya na girl driver ang oovertake-an niya then when the guy saw me, i sped off. akala niya porque girl driver mabagal magdrive.

^ yey to you sis!

kapag nakahang nga pala kayo, you can use your handbrakes. timplahin nyo muna and kapag timplado na ang gas at clutch, pwede ng unti-unting ibaba ang handbrake.

if anyone has been to shangrila mall's P4 parking, namatayan ako dun sa ramp nila na saksakan ng slant. naka-45 degrees slant na nga, naka-curve pa, ang sikip pa! gas fueled corolla pa ang dala ko, mas mabilis yun umatras kapag nakahang compared to diesel engines. wag nyo ng itry kung hindi pa. pero handbrakes ang nagsalba sa kin dun. umatras na nga yung car na kasunod ko nun nakita nyang naghang ako e.

now, sa traffics naman at nakahang din. handbrakes pa rin ang solusyon. at dagdagan nyo na rin ng hazzard lights. i always make the car behind me not to make tutok. to do that, malayo pa lang yung car sa likod dapat nakahazzard ka na. and let go of the brake for a bit. to imply na umaatras ka - para hindi sya tumutok. kung di nya ma-gets yun at naatrasan mo sya. hindi mo sya responsibilidad. kasalanan nya na nakatutok sya sa yo. kahit di ka pa nakahazard. normally, kapag ginagawa ko ito, kalahati ng sasakyan ang layo ng car behind me. hehe! scare tactics!

Naku I hate the carpark at Shang kase ang tarik. Ok lang ngayon kase we're using an automatic car. Eventually I wanna drive a manual car talaga para masanay talaga ko. Now hubby wants me to be really road-worthy first hehe

si hubby kasi ang gusto nya ang unang matutunan ko ay yung defensive driving pero para sa akin di ba dapat mauna muna yung lakas ng loob sa kalsada bago yung defensive driving? haaay.. im so confused.

medyo pressure sa part ko kasi lahat ng dina-drive kong sasakyan ay puro brandnew (by the way, 3 mos. ago lang talaga ako nakahawak at nakapag drive ng sasakyan in my entire life)

^IMO, defensive driving comes in as soon as you're confident/road worthy na. Nung una kase, tarantahin ako cus I was so nervous na madikitan and pag kasama ko si hubby lage akong 'ano gagawin ko, ano gagawin ko??'. When I got used to driving, quiet na lang sya sa tabi and would let me do my own diskarte especially if it's traffic or masikip. It's really important to be a defensive driver especially here in the Philippines but that'll come pag confident ka na sa road :)

^Correct sis hehe. I always tell my hubby beforehand to control his reactions when I'm driving kase may pagka-nerbyosa ko so hinde pwede yung mga bigla syang mapapasigaw or whatever.

papa ko before, nun tinuturuan nya magdrive ang mama ko, nasigawan nya. ayun gas ang inapakan instead of brake. nabangga sila sa pader. hehe! kaya nun tinuturuan nya na mga kapatid ko, natutulog sya sa byahe. at ako naman, nun nag-aral ako, hindi ko sya isinama. hahaha!

nakakasira talaga ng diskarte kapag may kasama kang passenger seat driver. tapos sisigaw pa. kaya pinili ko nun na mag-isa. husband (boyfriend then) ko nun ang kasama ko. nawawala ang nerbyos ko kapag ninenerbyos sya kasi natatawa ako. hehe! ang problem ngayon, hindi tuloy sya matuto magdrive kasi natrauma yata sa akin. kaya ako ang designated driver.

hassle talaga kapag nagaaral ka magdrive tapos sisigawan ka. siyempre ang tendency mawala ka sa concentration. kaya before bumili ako ng murang kotse, mga 35k na galant, tumatakbo pa naman, ginamit ko 'yung para mag-aral magdrive. kasi kahit may driving lesson, dapat may follow up practice ka sa bahay. at mag-isa lang ako nag-ddrive noong nag-aaral palang ako.. kabado pero at least nandoon ang focus ko sa highway at kahit businahan ako ng mga sasakyan kasi bago palang ako, wapakels ako.. :)
Blah blah blah!

^onga sis dapat talaga may practice car na mura lang yung tipong hinde masakit sa puso kapag nabangga hehe. minsan kase dagdag pressure and kaba pa pag maiisip mo na mahal yung gastos sa car pag nasagi or nagasgasan. my hubby bought 92 super saloon na matic din para mapag-practice ko. ayoko sana ng matic kase hinde din mapapa-practice manual driving skills ko but last year kase i was preggy and he didnt want me na mahirapan sa pagtimpla-timpla ng clutch/gas/break. now, we're selling the car na para we can get a new one.

^Mejo mahirap nga yan sis. Pag patalikod kase mas nadadalian ako kase may side and rear view mirror, pero kase kotse dina-drive ko. Pag van mukhang mas mahirap nga. Kaya mo yan sis. Napansin ko nga mas madiskarte ako kapag wala hubby ko. Pag anjan kase sya umaattack palage ang pagka-dependent ko sakanya hehe

baligtad naman ako. pickup ang gamit ko at mas nadadalian ako magpark paatras kaysa paharap. kapag paharap palaging tabingi ang park ko. yung parallel parking din hirap ako. pero yung patalikod ang favorite ko. kapag kotse ang gamit ko, parang nabababaan ako kaya hirap ako magdrive. parang feeling ko kakainin ako ng buung buo ng mga nakakasabay kong sasakyan na mas malaki sa akin.

Paying those driving schools won't be worth it, why?
I tried two driving schools when i was 21, walang kwenta. They would just ask you to step on gas and just drive tapos shift gear, achieve 20kph before shifting(which is one stupid technique) after an hour every day, wala lang,ubos na binayad mo.
 
fortunately, i found someone smart to teach me skills, and i finally learned!
