2 Fast 2 Furious

Raft3r is one terrible driver.

I disregard traffic laws, drive away from apprehending traffic enforcers, enter one way streets, park wherever I want, and step on the gas pedal like there is no tomorrow.

I first learned to drive by taking our then Toyota Corolla for a spin when everyone has gone to bed at night.

I would quietly open the garage and sneak out. Of course, folks at home would notice I took the car out when they see bumps on the Corolla the following day.

After several years on the road and a lot of trash talk exchanges with bus and cab drivers, I am quite adept in driving around the metropolis.

I remembered my recent Majuro trip. They only have one main road that leads almost to everywhere. They have no traffic lights. No traffic enforcers. Plus, the speed limit is only 25km/h!

Raft3r drove there, too. Chickens on the roadside constantly ran for their lives.

Kaya pala ganun itsura ng CRV mo. He he he.
Remember dahil sa iyong driving skills nahulog yung mga lumpiang shanghai na handa dun sa blessing ng friend natin, pero binalik lang natin sa bilao at pinakain sa mga bisita and in fairness lahat sila sarap na sarap. Ha ha ha.
