Maintaining an Old Car vs. Buying A New One

Let me tell you about the car that I drive.

I’ve been driving the same car for the past 12 years. It was a gift from my father after my SPM examinations so that I could drive to and from college every day comfortably.

Over the years, both my friends and my family have constantly told me to buy a new car like most other people do, but I have so far resisted the urge to get rid of my beloved car. As far as I’m concerned, I love my car, it has sentimental value to me, and because of how many hours I’ve spent behind it’s wheel, I’m an expert driver when I’m driving my own car.

Riding on a motorcycle makes all of us more vulnerable as compared to sitting in a car. It’s part of the risk of riding a bike, but it’s also for the thrill. For many years, motorcycle manufacturers have been working to increase the safety of the riders with technologies like inflatable vests, smart helmets and others to increase the protection on the riders. Some are successful, some, not so much.

So where will the next inspiration come from? Well, German manufacturer Bosch thinks that the next big break may come from space, the final frontier.

Balik Kampung - Rent or Drive Your Own?

The festive season is just around the corner. For many of us, that means long drives back to our hometowns in our cars, packed with family members and relatives, sitting in terrible jams in every direction on the nation's main highways.

What if, instead of driving your own car, you used someone else’s vehicle instead? Sure, you could try and borrow a car from a close friend or relative, but that could be an awkward conversation trying to convince someone to lend you their car for a long road trip.

SMART Goal Setting

Whether or not you realise it, your day is full of goals.

Adjusting to New Environments

College is the beginning of the rest of your life, in my opinion. From the point you enter college to the point you go for your first internship, followed by your career and all the jobs you will experience through your life, one of the most important skills you can have is this: knowing how to adjust to new environments.
