Weekend Story: New Car + Other Stuff

With the arrival of our new car last Friday, we are back to paying monthly car amortizations starting April. I had mixed feelings about this as I initially wanted to use our old car as long as possible. But after understanding where the hubby was coming from, I gave in to his plea and went on to co-sign the car loan with him. Wives should listen to their husbands, sometimes, hahaha.

We sold our old car (thank you and goodbye, Nissen!) to buy a new one (hello and welcome, British!). It was another adult decision that we’ve both agreed to make. So help us God. Now we have a better car that could get us from point A to point B more comfortably and with greater efficiency. For one, it has automatic transmission. The car is now easier to drive for us. Also, it’s diesel, not gas, which implies cheaper fuel prices. Actually, based on the hubby’s thorough research, he found out the Hyundai Accent 2017 has more pro’s than con’s. It’s really just a matter of how the driver uses it, good practices, proper maintenance, and all.

While we think the car is a wise buy, it still is debt. Five years worth of debt, to be exact. We pray for stability in the next five years so we could finish our car payments with our heads still up. πŸ˜›

As for our weekend, it was fine. We spent Saturday in Manila and Sunday in Bacoor. Below are some highlights of our weekend:

  1. Ganyan na ganyan ako nung kumuha kami ng koche. Hahahaha!! Pero now, no regrets talaga. Kasi sobrang kelangan namin and pag nag compute kami, laking tipid nya padin. At ang di matatawarang comfort. Isa sa mga inisip ko yang Accent na Diesel kaso medyo tight na sa budget, mahigpit na sinturon ang aabutin namin. So we went for the next best thing for us.

        1. Hahaha, ako nga rin di masyado makapagbloghop ngayon. Pero babawi ako soon. Miss ko na rin magbasa ng blogs nyo. πŸ™‚

          Super busy sa work, waaaaah! πŸ™

  2. Congratulations on your new car! Looks promising ang Hyundai Accent ah, tapos Diesel pa.

    If you don’t mind, bakit pala British? Hehe.
