Learning the road

It has been one of my new year resolution that I will work towards my driving licence.
I am glad to say that I make that step today and started on my driving lesson.

Say what you may, but I have decided to take the less popular path and sign up with a private instructor.

After my not so fantastic dinner at Delifrance Lot-1, I went down to Bukit Gombak MRT to meet the instructor, which seems to be a rather experienced instructor with many years of experience written on his face.

I guess its a bit unbelievable for someone in their early 30s to take on to the steering wheel for the very first time and I keep getting this question for the first 15 min of the session... but... truth being so, what can I say.

I was quite taken back when the car keep stalling when I get behin the wheel, but as the session went on, I start to get smoother and stop throwing everyone in the car all over.....

Managed to at least get on to the second gear without a dent on any car and absolutely zero road kill.

The scary part is that, my instructor will like me to be on the road at the next session....So, if you happen to be anywhere near Bukit Gombak, Bukit Batok, Choa Chu Kang area... stay clear of the road and if you see me behind the wheel of the L plate... please hor... Siam as far as you can.

The most impt thing when driving is confident. Remember, you control the car, not the car control you. :)
