Not The Worlds Greatest Blogger

My favorite blogger manages to put together a sensible, well written blog every day. Life with a Myvi is intended just that, a tale of living with a Myvi, major events, funny stories, places visited, etc. Alas, I am not a very attentive blogger, life is so busy that bloging items get overlooked. So far this year we have been on three holidays in FTP, but not one has been mentioned. Perhaps I had better show some photos of FTP on his various holidays.

1. Peebles:

In Febuary we traveled to Peebles a small Scotish border town on the River Tweed just below Edinburgh. FTP took four adults the 338 miles there almost non-stop, and we emerged without much discomfort. We stayed in a holiday apartment on the main street. FTPs Peebles holiday snaps ~

2. Romney Marsh:

Deece and myself went down to Romney Marsh in April and camped at Romney Farm. We were keen to see Dungeness.

New Perodua UK Website - At Last.

The UK Perodua website was to say the least poor. If the website was my first contact with Perodua, I would more than likely have never got past the first page!

Fortunately, Perodua now has a new UK website, its just so much better than the old one. Hopefully, the inquisitive will get past the website and visit the dealer now.

With the new website comes a useful new page, for people like us who have our car serviced by a non-Perodua dealer. Currently our garage gets photocopies of any information they need from our Perodua dealer; but the new page allows garages to obtain workshop manual details for the Myvi by e-mailing Perodua. Hopefully, this will reassure more people who do not live close to a dealer that a Myvi is a viable car to own.
