SWINGING

This was taken on Father's Day. Took the boys out to let off some steam at the neighbourhood playground. I carried my camera along as playground is always a good place to record the kids in their full earnestness.

Managed to snap a handful but I took a particular liking to this one. Click for bigger picture.

Swing Eiddin, swing.

FOCUS TDCi IN NST'S CBT

The object of my current desire, the TDCi is being reviewed in the CBT pull-out of NST today.

The writer heaped praises on the car notably on the powerful diesel engine, its equipment level, the torque and the traction. The writer did not touch on the handling though.

On the downside, the writer highlighted the sluggish downshifting (whatever that means) and the fact that the Focus and all its variants will be made obsolete within 2 years.

The writer however gave a more believable fuel consumption estimate - 55 litre for 500-600 km - compared to some reports on the web which boasted that the car can go 800 km with 55 litres pumped in its belly.

Sadly, whatever it is that the car has to offer, at RM128,888 OTR w/o insurance, the TDCi remains well beyond my reach.
