Pinky on Scooter

My 9-year old daughter on her almost all pink get-up. I just picked her up from her school thus still on her pink uniform, pink school bag, pink lunch box, and the matching pink helmet. She was waiting for me by the scooter while I bought food for our dinner that night. And suddenly it hit me. My, she looked so sweet in all pink that I immediately took my mobile phone and took a snap of her. Ain't she the cutest?

On all pink get-up! 
Aboard the white scooter!

On the other hand, the white scooter is our daily service to and from school. It's a 1997 model SYM (Taiwanese company) scooter at 125 cc. Vintage I say LOL. It's a second hand one (I can't afford a brand new) which I bought for, guess how much ~ at only 332us$. Unbelievably cheap, right? And it's a low maintenance (well, except that we changed a new battery and new front tire last year) and so low on fuel consumption at only 4us$ per week. The most convenient part is, I get to drive it in and out of our campus. Such privilege is only offered to the university staff and its PhD students. Luckily I'm one of the students and thus given with a silver sticker (stuck on front board). Ain't that so great!

Scooters in Taiwan are by the way so popular. There are about 10 million scooters in the country, giving it the world's largest per-capita ownership level. Around our campus alone, parking spaces are so crammed with scooters. Ah you can't imagine my difficulty on parking late at night back in our apartment. So crazy.

Parking lots around the campus are crowded with scooters. 
The parking lot outside our college/department (and with my kids on pinks).

  13. i totally agree, very punked-up in pinky stuff:)

    the scooters are interesting, at least, not unlike here where cars of different types were the biggest volume of traffic causes in city areas.
