By

Clash over car wash

By

After moving out of my parents’ home and living in with my wife in our own new home, I felt a sense of empowerment. I clean the house (thankfully it’s a small townhouse with less than 150 sqm of living space), vacuum, sweep and mop the floors, do the dishes, prepare meals, take out the trash, etc., while my wife goes to work earlier than I and usually comes homes a wee bit later. My wife spent a significant portion of her life in Toronto, Canada, and my folks always said I was a neat freak so we both thought we would try living without household help, American-style so to speak. Every day I end up very tired because I tend to clean the house twice: first in the morning, fixing our bedroom, getting our things for the day ready, and the cleaning part itself. Our place is unusually dusty due to its proximity to construction sites in the area; dust, cement and sand will always find their way into our home. Hence, I have to clean it up again in the evening, before I prepare for dinner. You are probably thinking: What the hell does cleaning the house have to do with cars?!

There is that formal Spanish greeting that warmly says, “Mi casa es su casa,” which translates to English as “My house is your house.” Filipino car owners certainly feel that way when they buy a brand-new car from their friendly neighborhood dealership. They feel welcomed. And as long as the warranties are effective, the car owners regularly bring in their cars for routine checkups, top-ups, tune-ups and repairs.

By

Week after week, month after month, I’ve been writing about car care maintenance tips, and at some point it does become repetitive. Why is this?
