Chris wanted to buy a car. Honda City 1.5 VTEC. Since he is a foreigner, he needs some help during the negotiation process. Hence, my boss and I accompanied him to Honda’s showroom.

Chris: I think this is a good buy.
Boss: I don’t really like the color. Too bright.
Me: I’m loving it.
Boss: Don’t you think the color is so feminine.
Me: I don’t know about the color, but I think this is the ladies’ car. What do you reckon Puan?
Boss: I still don’t like the color.
Chris: I shouldn’t bring you guys in the first place.

For the record, he bought that sexy car. Now, he is our favorite chauffeur.

Message to Chris:
Since you’ve already paid for the car, I got one small request. Please leave that car with me once you decided to go to another country. I’ll take good care of her.

Here are the two reasons why I’m marrying my wife.

Reason # 1

Me: Instead of going to Europe, for a change, let’s go to Syria or Jordan. I would like to visit the Palestinian refugees’s camp.
Wifey: I’d like to. But I have one request though.
Me: Dear, for you, anything.
Wifey: Buy me a boot first.
Me: A boot?
Wifey: Yeah, the one that Norzie* wears when she visited Palestine's neighbours before.

Reason # 2

After watching the 2005 British Grand Pix.

Wifey: I prefer to be second.
Me: Huh.
Wifey: Yeah, they won a crystal trophy**. Isn’t that cool?
Me: And?
Wifey: All my brochures would look nice in that trophy.
Me: Luckily I’m not an F1 driver.
