Petrol and Dinner

It’s been a while since I put petrol in my own car – rif usually does it for me. Yes, I’m pampered that way. I don’t quite know how to put air in my tyres either because he’s been doing that for me too. I’m sure I can manage fine on my own, but since he likes doing it, I gladly let him. 😆

Was on my way to Empire last night and thought I’d stop by Shell in SS15 to refuel. The new petrol dispenser sucks big time. I hope it’s not just me, because that would mean I’m a noob. But seriously, I like the old nozzle better.

If you don’t know how to use the new dispenser, you might end up with petrol all over yourself. That happened to me last night fml. 😥 No wonder my mum and sisters pay RM2 for the attendant to refuel for them. The damn thing disposed petrol on my clothes and bag. So much that I had to run to the bathroom to clean up the mess.

Thank goodness I wasn’t followed or marked, because my friend told me there have been many cases in that petrol station. 😯 And he too, found the new petrol dispenser a pain to use. I’ll just let rif do the petrol pumping from now on. Since he does a better job than I.


Prawn with fried yam. The latter had a strong alkaline smell and taste.

Sat through dinner smelling of petrol, despite washing up twice. Better set reminder to buy lottery ticket. Here’s my dinner of Peking duck, noodles and siew yuk. Didn’t like the noodles, because they used duck meat instead of pork.

Am drafting my Marina Bay Sands post on food and the food pictures are evil, I tell you!

  1. Yiaks…hate the spilled petrol smell. If kena hand got to wash several times to remove the smell. How’s ur baju? Manage to wash off the smell? Though I know how to put air into tyre…but I still get HB to do it. hehehe…=p

      Yeah, quite strong the smell. I soaked my clothes in water overnight. Hopefully no more smell. Hehehe…let the men do the dirty job. 😆

  2. eek. i pump at petron (the former esso), which is splash-free so far. but i must confess that there’s also at least one essential car-related task that i can’t do: i can’t change tires! 😀

      Maybe I should try other petrol stations. Hahaha…you can always call the mechanic. Or call rif. I can loan him to you for a small fee. 😉

    Eh, what’s up with the new nozzle/dispenser? Is it that difficult to fill up? Hope you soaked your dress in soap to remove the mineral smell.

    1. Bangsar Babe

      I also don’t know. It’s tricky to use. The grip isn’t as good and it feels flimsy. Yes, I soaked my clothes in a bucket of soap and water. Hopefully the smell goes away.

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Yes, Shell changed the petrol dispenser. So the new one sucks big time. 😐

  5. Jocesy

    Yea, the new dispenser at Shell sucks.I spent 20 mins standing there, trying to pump and ended up giving up and paid only RM 10. Luckily i found a petrol station which is still using the old dispenser.

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Yikes! It’s so ridiculous. Might as well pump at Petronas…
