Thank You For The 7 Sunny Years, Sunshine
According to the Cambridge Dictionary, a car is a road vehicle with an engine, four wheels, and seats for a small number of people. To most people, a car is a just vehicle or machine to take them to places they want or need to go. But some people treat their car as a pet and give it a name. I am one of these people. I used to have a car that I called Sunshine. In today's post, I would like to share with you guys about Sunshine. Btw, I'm going to make this post short. So let's begin...
Sunshine is a yellow color Perodua MyV S.E 1.5. I bought Sunshine in September 2013. At that time, I was about to start my internship with Grup Buku Karangkraf (GBK)- one of the Malaysian publishing companies. GBK is located at Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. So I need a car for work and traveled to Shah Alam.
Me and my Sunshine. Standing next to her makes me happy ^_^
After I completed my MBA in 2014, I landed a job at Jabatan Perdana Menteri (JPM), Putrajaya as a contract civil servant. I continued to drive Sunshine. My relationship with Sunshine improved better when I was working at JPM. I started to feel more comfortable driving the cute yellow car. Perodua MyV has a good engine and the handling is easy to compare to other cars that I drove before. I'm not a good driver and sometimes I get scared holding the steering wheel. But Sunshine made it easy for me. Because of Sunshine, I become a confident driver. Besides, Sunshine made me the independent woman I always want to be. Because of Sunshine, I can go anywhere I want without asking my Dad or Mom to send me to the destination. The sunny yellow car also made me look trendy. I always like yellow color cars. I think yellow cars are trendy and lovely for girls.
After the General Election in 2018, I lost my job as a contract civil servant. Since that day, I had a hard time finding a stable job and became a freelancer. And since I'm only a freelancer now and rebuilding my career, I am not able and can't afford to keep Sunshine. So I had to let her go although it was hard for me. We were so attached and had seven sunny years together. Sunshine has been a good car for me. With Sunshine, I'm able to drive well, become a good driver, and independent woman. Sunshine has done so many things for me. That's why it was hard for me to let her go. She is already like a family to me. She's one of the best things that I ever had.
My last picture with Sunshine :'(
I wish to keep Sunshine as my forever-and-ever car. But what to do? No money, no talk. I just have to let her go. Maybe it's for the better. Insya'Allah. Plus, we can't hold the things we love forever. There are times we need to let go of the things we love and let it be happy with a new owner. What I'm saying is love needs sacrifices.
Thank you for the seven sunny years, Sunshine
Last week, 14th September 2020, a used car agent took Sunshine away from me. I was sad and almost cried :'( However, Sunshine and I had a good farewell. Thanx to the used car agent. He took me for a long ride on Sunshine. So I had almost the whole day with her. After the used car agent dropped me at my front door, all I can say is "Bye-bye, partner.......thank you for the seven sunny years". Yep, I had seven sunny years with Sunshine. Sunshine did not just make me a good driver, but she also makes me a better person overall. As a former owner of Sunshine, I pray that she will meet a new owner soon who is a much better person and driver than me. I also pray that Sunshine's new owner will love and take good care of her more than I do. And if Allah S.W.T allows me, I would like to meet Sunshine again in the future. Insya'Allah. Aamiin.
Ok, since I already promised to you guys to make this story short, I'm just going to end this post here. Thank you for reading. Have a good day. Till we meet again.......

sedihnya.. saya pulak terasa sayu dengan kisah Sunshine ni. insyaAllah awak akan jumpa dia lagi lainkali. mungkin berhenti disebelah dia kat mana2 traffic light. 😊ReplyDelete
Kan......Aamiin. I hope to see Sunshine driven by a pretty lady or handsome guy. Insya’Allah.Delete
Aww Fadima, I'm so sorry you had to part with your beloved car. We were in a similar situation a few years back when we had to sell our car that we called Yarry. (It was a Toyota Yaris!) To this day, we still miss him and talk about him often. As I'm sure you will with Sunshine!ReplyDelete
I see......Yarry must be special to you.Delete
Aww! Saying goodbye to your beloved car sucks, but getting a new one is exciting!ReplyDelete

But I’m not getting a new one at the moment. I’ll be only getting a new one when I become a writerprenuer.Delete
That's such a little cute story. I really hope you will enjoy your next car as much as you enjoyed sunshine.ReplyDelete
Oh, Fadima, I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye to Sunshine, your first car is always special but it's good you have so many wonderful memories xReplyDelete
Oh I’m sorry to hear that, may everything will be fine for you from time to time. It’s cute and heartwarming the way you viewed your Sunshine. Indeed when we have a car that long, we tend to feel the love towards it right. Stay strong and may your path will be ease next and after.ReplyDelete
Auwww......that is so sweet. Thank you and Aamiin 💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛Delete
Kereta yang banyak berjasa dan menjadi kenangan sepanjang hidup kita ni memang sedih laaaaaaa bila dah tiada. Nasib baik ada ambil gambar. HeheheDelete
7 tahun memg lama.. Siapa tak sedih kalau kereta dh lama kita pakai kemudian terpksa dijual. Semoga awak dapat rezeki lagi baik lepas niReplyDelete
Baca kisah kereta u pun dah sedih nie...benda yg kita sayang mmg sukar nak di lupakan. Tak apa insyaallah ada rezeki.lain menantiReplyDelete
Insya’Allah. Itú yg saya percaya. Just be positive with it. Allah S.W.T kalo nak kasi kita sesuatu yg baru DIA akan tarik yg lama dulu kan.Delete
Tak apa, nanti ada rezeki dapat yang lebih baik lagi yaa.. untung owner baru tu dapat kereta u yang u jaga elok selama 7 tahun..hope owner tu jaga baik juga macam mana u jaga dia..ReplyDelete
Insya’Allah. Saya doakan owner baru Sunshine lebih baik dpd saya.Delete
Understand how you feel my friend. Not easy to let go especially 7 years is not a short time.. Moga dimurahkan rezeki soon!ReplyDelete
Sedih bila berpusah dengan kereta kesayangan kan. Bukan mudah nak let go sebab dah guna selama 7 tahun kan. Kalau saya sendiri pun sedih tauReplyDelete
ala sedihnya...sentimental value kan..esp untuk kenderaan yang banyak berjasa kepada kitaReplyDelete
Hmmm.......apa kan saya.......masa mencemburui kita.Delete
kadang kadang ada orang tak faham kenapa ada "barang" atau harta yg memang kita suka, kita jaga dan sedih bila kehilangan. sebab orang tak tau sentimental value yg kita rasaReplyDelete
That’s what I’m saying.Delete
This is a very beautiful story, I'm sorry for you. But let's hope the best.ReplyDelete
Great post! Aww that's so sad! The car looked lovely!ReplyDelete
It is lovely 😊Delete
This is such a lovely post. Its such a shame that you had to get rid of sunshine but at least you have some great memories.ReplyDelete
Yep, beautiful memories to cherish.Delete
Awe what a cute car! Happy 7 years to you!ReplyDelete
7 sunny year........Delete
So sorry you two had to part company. It's strange that we can get so attached to things like cars, but we still do.ReplyDelete
Hopefully, your next car will be just as cool!
That because those things help you to become a better person and give you lovely memories.Delete
Aww what a sweet car!ReplyDelete
It can be so hard to say goodbye to your first car. I know it was for me with mine too. It sounds like Sunshine served you well, though! How awesome to have a bright yellow car. Such fun! �� Alison, A Sustainably Simple LifeReplyDelete
Yeah, yellow cars are lovely and trendy. I hope my next car will be a yellow one as well 💛💛💛Delete
Oh wow your yellow kelisa looks so cute and fun! I have one kelisa also mine is silver color.ReplyDelete
Sunshine is not a Kelisa. She’s a MyV.Delete
Hi Fadima it's difficult to let go of something that was important to you I can relate all you can do is to just hope for greater things coming your way. Thank you for sharing your story.ReplyDelete
Sigh 😔 but I’m still keeping my mind positive about it 😄Delete
I'm sorry you had to get rid of your car! That's a bummer. I hope things get better soon and you can find a car that you like just as much :-)ReplyDelete
Setiap orang ada kisah tersendiri dengan kenderaan fav masing2 kan. Tinggal kenangan dengan sunshineReplyDelete
Mana tau masa hadapan lebih baik
Aamiin. Thanx Lia.Delete
