    Well Ron, it isn't red and hasn't got a prancing horse on the bonnet; doesn't roar just sort of meows( though it has a stylised tiger emblem); 1.3 litre engine that manages 40 miles to the gallon and a top speed of 135 kph; one of the cheapest cars on the market AND it's local made........ It's a Proton Saga! Never heard of it? You're are forgiven - nobody outside Malaysia has.It replaces the old faithful ( sorry another Proton) which I had for 15 years and chalked up more than 289,000 km.

    Anyway thanks Ron and Amey for the birthday wishes.

    OK here's the birthday present from the boys. The boys (3 sons) had planned to give us a surprise 50th wedding anniversary gift for next March - a car to replace the old jalopy- but we jumped the gun, not knowing what they had planned and bought the car. Any way they paid for it and we had an early present. Don't know what they have planned for next March, but I'm sure not another car. Hahaha

    Yes, you have such a generous family! Thanks for the picture of your b'day present. That was a great gift.
    (I couldn't help noticing all that space in the portico- you could hang like a 100 orchids there... )
