    btw, saxon,
    dont give up thinking of a ride.

    when you get your dream DSLR setup, you'll need a ride to bring it around.
    nothing beats the convenience of having your own ride.

    and though it deems 'unaffordable' to you now, all you'll need to do is to save up for the downpayment.do not take high loan.
    pay a minimum of 30%, and that'll bring your instalments per mth down considerably.
    all the above, of course, is only applicable if you know you wont be out of job for a while.
    else, it's a risk you'll have to take.

    you can do it lah.and so can everyone who's gonna take their D test in this thread.

    ALL the BEST guys.

    I already paid BBDC enough to get a D300 with some spares, maybe for a MB-D10.

Also never go up in a highway before!
    However, due to poor parking skill, scatched my car just on the second day while try to reverse park after work. It was damn heartache man!!!

    actually in tighter carpark...what i do is to pull the handbrakes and let the car skid a bit so the back is easier to get in...after a while you will get the hang of it...

    The tyres will play a part too right? Do you need to accelerate a lot when you pull the hand brake?

    But I don't think this is healthy for the tires, right? Anyway, after a while, I don't have any problem doing reverse parking in 45 degrees now, in fact, often I can be quite accurate and park right at the center spot of the parking lot.. though sometime still need minor adjustment lah... Hehe...

    I found out that a 'good' place to practice parking is try to park at IMM over weekend and during the period hours during the weekends. Even driving out of the parking lot can be quite a challenge already. Haha...

    Once I was at Suntec City, one stupid Subaru driver parked at the open space just oppsite my parking lot and I had a hard time to drive out due to lack of distant and angle to turn. Fortunately the driver wasn't in the car, I had to do many small turn in a ver tight spot and actually had to use my bumper to push a little on the Subaru in order to get out of the parking lot. All the drivers on the lane waiting to pass me watched with their mouth wide open as I intentionally 'bang' on the Subaru. Haha....

    Haha... Nothing happen of course, to the Subaru or my car, cause it was really a very gentle bump. I was quite amazed with my control as well. Hehe...

    Good thing also the Subaru owner/driver didn't come back in time to see what happened, otherwise, think he/she will surely KPKB one or even want to claim damages for repair. But who's fault in the first place right? He parked illegally on the lane and blocked others from coming out from the parking lot.

    Single white line, TP sure catch those who park there. Common.

    What if the car is parked reverse and facing oncoming traffic? I wonder how many points will that driver gets if I post the pic online.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!
