Kimi Has Arrived

Besides Dad and her furkids, Mama's other passions include her rides. Just like us, they are also named after famous people. (Cars have personalities and souls too, she said.) The elder one that stayed here with Tom and family is Ms Sophia (as in Loren), a large black automatic sedan while the younger, that I used to go gallivanting with in Sydney is Mr Kimi (as in Raikkonen, the former F1 champion), a cute white tiptronic sedan.

Now, together with our boxes in the container is Mr Kimi. It took a while to get Mr Kimi out of the port, there were taxes and charges and what not to be paid before we could see him. Thus he was delivered a week later than the other boxes. Mama was so happy to see him that she hugged and kissed Mr Kimi in public when it was delivered. tsk tsk tsk... Shame on you, Mama.

As the battery had gone dead due to prolonged non-use, Mama and Dad had to buy a new battery to get it going again. Mr Kimi was towed from the port to our house. He's not allowed to roam the street until he's legit, anyway.

Mr Kimi upon arrival. Isn't he handsome?
Mama inspecting her darling Mr Kimi. The whole condo complex inhabitants could see her hugging and kissing him. Shame! Shame!
Mr Kimi is undergoing a process of turning him into a Malaysian (no...he doesn't need to sit for any citizenship test). Dad is taking care of everything....inspection, insurance, registration while Mama is playing ignorant....teeheehee. Mama said she took care of Mr Kimi all by herself for six years in Sydney so now it's Dad's turn. In return, Dad is allowed to put his name down as the second driver in the insurance document. Come on Dad, something is better than nothing. What if she had put my name instead? A driving cat? Woohoo!!!!

As for Ms Sophia, she'll start a new life as a staff member of Mama's company. She's been useful as goods and people carrier all these while anyway as she has a big butt boot.

Mr Kimi is having a make over as we speak. Dad says he needs a new paint job and touch up. Whatever that means. As for his new identity, we'll only get it next week or so. No, he's not under any witness protection programme. He's been a good citizen of Australia and hopefully a better Malaysian. purrr....meow!

CfS,
do you know that i call my youngest and only son by Kimi Raikonen,
untill some of my frens ask me, is kimi Raikonens name registered in my son Birth certificate.
i m a big fan of Kimi,
like him since his first appearence in Australian GP with Sauber and as a rookie, he got 4th palace in his first debut ..
thats why Ronn Denis immediately took him to mclaren replacing mika hakkinen ..

but i like to see his fighting sprit while in mclaren rather than in ferrari ..
he won the championship just because Mclaren have two good driver, lewis hamilton and alonso .. both arguing who should be treated as first driver, in the end giving advantage to kimi winning the championship by 1 point ..

kimi oh kimi ...
main lumpur la engko sekarang ...
(a rally driver )

Amanda said...

Mr Kimi is very handsome! Tobi likes to go for car rides very much!

Malay-Kadazan girl said...

Wah boleh pergi banyak ronda-ronda.

Photo Cache said...

I know people who name their cars, but our Mama and Papa don't.

Happy weekend. Are you going out for a ride with Mr. Kimi soon? WE don't like car rides.

Emma and Buster

Oskar said...

Nubbin wiggles,

Hello dear! What a handsome Mr Kimi! I can understand why your mama loves Mr Kimi so much.Wah nanti Mr Kimi bole balik KT lah!

one of Fae's humans said...

i'm glad Mr. Kimi finally arrived and in good condition! i hope turning him into a Malaysian isn't too expensive because i'm sure it was REALLY expensive getting him to Malaysia in the first place!

Welcome to Malaysia, Mr. Kimi! Kimi certainly is very handsome and I think you will all have many enjoyable years with him.

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Carolyn,
Mama bought Mr Kimi because of me. She was happy using public transports in Sydney but once she "gotchaed" me, she reckoned she needs a car to take me to the vet. So, no cause for jealousy there. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty CS,
Is Ms Aga cute and sexy? purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
tsk tsk tsk...poor Mr Bikey. He deserves a name. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Jul,
You sound like the Minister of Tourism. har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Uncle Aby,
Do they show the WRC on Malaysian TV? That's what I miss most....free sports channel! Hmmm....it's uncanny how you and my Mama have so much in common. First it was Olivia, now Kimi... purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Amanda,
Tobi can join me on the rides. Am sure Mama won't mind. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

MKG dear,
Ronda-ronda? That's a good word to learn. Yesss...I like that. purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Emma & Buster,
Only my Mama does. My Dad doesn't name his rides. At least one pawrent is sane. But....which one? purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Oskar dear,
Would you like to ride along? It will be fun. purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Nana,
Think of a name! Think of a name! What about Kitaro-san? purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Au & Target,
Come have fun with me and Mr Kimi. purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Lady of Leisure,
Hmm....are you serious about this Nikki and Arri thingy? Anyway, Mr Kimi will come in handy as the bridal limo, eh? purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

TK Sensei,
If we balik KT, we'll pay you a visit and take you for a ride in Mr Kimi, OK? purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Fae's human,
Malaysianising Mr Kimi is quite expensive but not as expensive as getting him here in the first place. Getting his import papers in order is not an experience that Mama would want to repeat. Ever. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Anon 8:22am,
It's OK. I'm not jealous of the kissing and hugging in public. Just ashamed. har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Paula,
I can't wait that long. What if I meet another feline before November? purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

CO78,
You too sound like the Minister of Tourism. purrr....meow!
