I remembered taking a ride on a big ,long Mercedes that cost RM 750,000!.Honestly, it was VERY difference from my old Mercedes. I fell that my mercedes just like an old Datsun 120Y (my dream car in 1980) ...

Abedib,
The picture was taken at Suria KLCC, yes? The one I love is just next to it. Convertible... :-)

Jamie,
Yes,the photo was taken at Suria KLCC.The Convertible is not suitable for me at this age;-)

My dream car is one that is self-cleaning, never needs to be serviced or repaired, finds parking spaces in the blink of an eye, never gets a speeding ticket, gets everywhere on time and in complete safety.

Assalamua'laikum,
Well , talking about dreamed car ...In 1995 , while waiting for my flight to London from Lyon, I bought myself a model of quite a luxurious car.The colour of the little model car was grey.I brought it home and placed it on my office desk.When my office mates asked me about it , I told them that ,with my salary I could only dream about owning it.Subhanallah ,to my surprise , in 1997, we got a REAL car and the colour is exactly grey .Whatelse can I say except to thank Allah .I never have thought my crazy dream became true.

Waalaikumussalam Rozidah,

As they say:"Be care what you dream.It may come true".

In the case of Martin Luther King, he was shot when he said:"I have a dream...".

Someone I know recently bought a Ferrari costing a few Million. I was thinking what I could have done with the money- a house, a nice car, and I enough money left over to start a small business.

Assalamualaikum pak Adib,

Reminds me that a colleague of mine just got one of those as a birthday present from her husband. Five years back she was driving a Kancil.

Some people are just .. lucky, I guess.

Your post about a 'dream car' provoked me into writing about something else. My own dream of life!

I'm dreaming of a good life, actually.

So what does that really mean?

For a start, I guess a roof over your head. Affordable housing could be a good initiative for any caring government. It's still not that good in this country of ours. A simple house could sets someone in a region of RM25000 the least. How could anyone earning RM500 and below dreams of owning their own house with that income. It could be a possibility if only a decent system to be put in place to ensure each and every individual could be helped into owning their own accomodation. A state-run housing board could ensure a minimalist accomodation for everyone. Different sets of housing could be catered for that purpose. The same housing board could also necessitate for an upgrade for anybody who has the need for one, be it for the purpose of 'enlarged' occupant numbers of a change of life-style neccessary to reflect an improvement of earning. Utmost task to this 'hypothetical' institution is to ensure a HOME for each and everyone of us.

Next is employment. Creation of job and the facilitation for employment for everyone. Each individuals should be able to earn a living, in an honest way. To serve this purpose, a decent system of education should be put in place. Free education for the masses up to the highest possible should be made available. Alternative education institution should also be made available for those who are not profficient enough to go through a normal academic learning system, so as to prepare these classes of individuals into a vocational streaming, so that they could employ their expertise in some kind that could help them earn a decent form of income. Education should not be a businese venture where it would be a hindrance to the development of human resource for the country and beyond.

A good social welfare sytem is also necessary to ensure the well-being of citizen. Healthcare provisions should be made to the maximum in order to facilitate a healthy set of community for the nation development.

Infrastructures to support a good living would also include affordable, efficient public transportation as well a well-coordinated network of transportation system. People could move about their life with more ease and interactions between communities and regions be facilitated further.

Well, well, well. So, where do all the monies could come to facilitates all the above. A well structured tax system that tax earning of individuals fairly and to distribute the wealth of the nation equally to all is the ideal solution. Remember that each and everyone of us are related to each other, by virtue of being the product of the union of Adam and Eve, the first two living person on earth. Do unto others what you want to do unto you. Happy neighbours would ensure happier communities and insyAllah, A GOOD LIFE for everyone.

abedib, lama dah tak baca blog abedib sbb pc saya rosak, ni dah ok. i have a wonderful dream.....nak miliki latest Treo

last tuesday i went to naza brabus showroom jln maarof, bangsar. car salesman is my fren, was entertaining a client (datuk). it happen to be the datuk know my big brother so we struck a conversation. he ask me "wan , bila nak beli?" i utterly said "InsyaAllah one day!". only people with BIG dreams can say that.

I used to drive the orig Mini and loved every minute of it. This new one is overpriced, becos of its BMW premium. The boot space is another matter and the joke is that this MINI has its glove compartment outside! No, I had the same prob when I was driving the orig one. Just ignored it and used the back seat as the boot. But it can be a pain. For its price, one can get a nicer car with better drive and even a sun roof, which is more convenient and works just as well as an open top car. (My own fav is a roadster (Mazda Miata!) Seriously, it was a pain esp when trying to ferry friends, and on rainy days, folks find it hard to struggle out a 2-door!

Anyway, many new cars from Toyota and Suzuki have this low-slung look. Check out the ISTs and Swifts (http://www.championmotors.com.sg/showroom/new_swift/new_swift.cfm?id=1)The best is that they can be cheaply modified for better performance (which was what the orig Mini was good for). Happy driving!
