.. And We're Off...

In the Exora now, aiming for our first destination Segamat. Overall, am satisfied with Exora with hubby as driver, Kimi as co captain, my mom and I and baby Hannah on the 2nd row and Haikal conquering the last seat.

Exora is spacious, ample leg room for the 2nd row. Haven't tried the 3rd myself but for Kimi and Haikal its ample space. The dvd is just ok. We got the Exora Bold so there's leather seat, a good thing for us with young kids, esp with the splashes of milk, snack foods and sometime barfs.

The reverse parking camera is also a plus. However, still need to use our parking skill first as it didn't account for side obstacles.

Radio and sound is just fair. Seats are fairly comfy (will update you later after I finished the 8 hours drive).

The dashboard is definitely boring. Jz functional, and nothing special. Quite like the led lighted display actually, so the meter is easily read. Also there's a meter stating how many km left with fuel. With full fuel, it states 450 km. We shall see if its a fuel saver machine.

Exora in Da Houz..

Think the happiest when Exora is home, definitely would be Kimi n Haikal.

Now both would have their own seat. At the back of the car, with clear view of the DVD. I can imagine their excitement to settle down tonight during our half way journey to JB.. Kerteh to Segamat would take around 4 hours. Then we will be staying at KopTown hotel. Kinda like budget hotel nowadays than actual hotel because they are newer, good new beds, cheaper, better tv as well wifi. Like KopTown is offering RM88 per room with 1 breakfast. The only downside of budget hotels everywhere is some rooms do not have window so a bit stuffy.

Anyway, haven't seen my Exora in person yet. Will do a review tomorrow when I had an actual physical experience on it.

Here She Comes! My Exora..

The past few weeks I had been busy, then hubby decided to indulge Kimi's wish to go to Legoland again during school holiday and for that, we will need a new ride :)

Things to do for buying cars are easier now that in 99 when I bought my Iswara. Payslips and IC jz to be scanned and emailed. Sms's to follow up status to Proton dealer and bank.

Wasn't very optimistic to get the car as my commitment is high. So, was surprised to know that the loan was approved. Me as main borrower and hubby as guarantor.

We pushed the dealer and banker a lot hehe! Less than a week (deducting some days I was on holiday).. Then last Sunday, I need to take another holiday to sign agreements and signed some docs at JPJ to sell off my car, get the NCD as well as buy my IC based registration no.

So.. See the elegant brown Exora there?! In prison and desperately need to get out :P

Can start pick it up at 4 today, hubby will do it as he is nearer. Then tomorrow, a quick sojourn to Tok Bali for an event, then back to Kerteh.. Drv down to Johor.. Stop over for a night rest at KopTown Bajet Hotel Segamat.. Legoland again?! Amansari Stualang Laut then BATAM!!!!!

Yeah.. massage here I come :)
