My old girl

The "old girl" here is my car. More than 12 years old Toyota Corolla, that has been faithfully bringing me to where ever I want to go. On the day I went to hospital to deliver my Baby Jay, my "old girl" broke down that evening. Under the heavy rain. My SIL drove my car that day and it broke down just at the big roundabout to BDC. I even drove it the day before and nothing happened. We sent the car back to my dad and he "kaw tim" my car and it stayed idle throughout my confinement period.

It turned out that the tubes to the water tank broke and leaked; so thank god it did not affect the engine. And now I am back to drive my "old girl" to send my girl to pre-school and Baby Jay to nanny's house and back. And hubby also scolded me "Why you didn't check this and that?" and I simply replied him "I only know how to drive the car." So in the end hubby just told me to remind him in the future to check on my car's battery, water etc so such incident would not happen again. *wink* I am leaving this checking stuff to him; he should know cars better than me!
