So, without noticing anything, I rush to fill up my water bottle~ A minute before left the house, my mom notice my left-back tyre seems to looks weird by saying "It looks like going to flat, hmmmmm...not like the other one". Rushing to work, I answered "I will go pump it after work".
I double-check the tyre condition after I reach office safely and timely. And to assure my eyes doesn't have any problem, I asked Hui Juin to look at if and confirm it was flatting. Yes, the tyre is flatting and it is PANCIT!!!! Grrrrrrr~~ My first time with flatting tyre and first with my Vivi too. What should I do?
The nightmare began when thinking when should I go and change or fix the tyre. I have few options as below :
1) Take half day leave (ANNUAL LEAVE) to go and fix - CANNOT, it will burn my RM100 attendance allowances as it is consider as EMERGENCY LEAVE.
2) Take half day UNPAID LEAVE (where half of it bear by the company) to go and fix - NOT WORTH it, because somehow I no "untung" and waste my one day UNPAID LEAVE.
3) Take"personal time off" to go and fix it - CANNOT, because it will burn my attendance allowances also. WTF!
4) Take "Business time off" to go nd fix it - CANNOT, somehow it need to get my MANAGER's approval, and the consequences I need to come out with lots of reasons why I applied "Business Time Off" for fixing the tyre! WTF again!
5) Somehow, I will need someone helping me to change to SPARE tyre because the tyre going to flat very soon even before lunch. And another thing, I do not know how to change tyre! WTF again again!!!
After further discussion with HR, my supervisor, and Hui Juin, we decided to change to spare tyre at 10am, and take lunch time off (only 45 minutes) to go and "tampal" the hole (if any). The risk that we need to take is, if the process takes more than 45 minutes, our RM100 attendance allowances will BURN!

Hui Juin and I are preparing for the "tyre changing" activity. It was my 1st time changing tyre, and I felt so nervous! Luckily Hui Juin "seems" to know the procedures and be my "sifu" in the whole activity.
She started to loosen the screws by stepping on it. She knew which way to turn to loosen it without trying on both clockwise and anit-clockwise. So, it just takes less than 5 minutes for her to loosen the screws. KHJ, you're so geng chao!! You potential to become foremen if Spansion going to bancrupt!
Meanwhile, I'm trying to find the most suitable place to place the jet, before start jetting up my car. Not easy task, as I don't know where to put! LOL! Once we manage to place the jet on the correct place (hopefully), I started to use the steel to jet up my car. Turning left and right..Phewww!! It's damn tiring, it's like using your hand to lift up the car which weight more than me!
As usual, I asked Hui Juin snap down the process of me who is hardly turning the jet! "Eeee---ahhhhh--eeee--ahhhhhh!!!"
After 15 minutes, we manage to remove the old flatting tyre, changing it with the spare tyre. Phhewwww!!! And luckily it's a cloudy day, we doesn't sweat much! THANK GOD! Actually, now I realized that the process of changing spare tyre is not as hard as I thought. As long you manage to loosen the screws, as long as you manage to jet up the car, as long as you manage to remove the tyre, then you can do it in a snap of fingers!
Maybe I got her to help me for my first time, make me feel much more easier than it should be~ Anyway, we did it!! Malaysia BOLEH! Hui Juin and Elaine BOLEH!!
After further investigation, proven there is a screw buried deeply in my tyre. It must be the screw from my neighbour's construction necause I pack the car in front of their gate yesterday.Cisss~
Now only I know Myvi's spare tyre is so much different in terms of size. It's like at least 2 sizes different as to compare to my 15" tyre. It does not bring any differences after we change the spare tyre, as you can see from picture below..the spare tyre looks even flat as compare to my flatting tyre! Hahahahahaha! But, since we already change it, why not just use it. So, Hui Juin's effort wont be wasted! LOL!
Here I would to thanks KUNG HUI JUIN for lending me a pair of hands to help in chaning the spare tyre! I owe you once, and I'm more than willing to help you to change if your tyre gets "pancit" one day! Choi CHoi Choi! TOuch Wood!! hehhehehe!
They are using the air blower to loosen the screws EASILY and using the GENG CHAO jet to jet my car up EASILY! Damn! It takes us so long and so hard to do that, while they EASILY did it in few blinks of eyes.
