VSO enroled me at the Honda Safety Driving Center in Paranaque for a week-long motorcycle driving course. While my Hippo batchmates returned to their respective hometowns/cities after our WRV, I stayed behind to learn skills and techniques needed in driving and handling a motorcycle in various riding/driving situations. In Kenya where I will be placed, I will be commuting from Mombasa to Lukore by motorcycle that will be provided by VSO Jitolee.
The driving course was easy pero akala ko lang pala yun! I had some repeats dahil hindi sila masaya sa performance ko. I needed to perfect cranking and braking, at kung anu-ano pa. Grabe, I thought I wouldn’t pass and would be forced to cancel my already booked flight back home at higit pa dun, I would be paying for the extra sessions straight from my own pocket kapag nagkataon. Buti na lang, the instructors were very patient to guide me from one technique to another, and they were strict at times when I seemed to be not paying enough attention. Kaya sa inyo, mga bossing, saludo ako. Salamat sa inyong tiyaga.
Now that I have the thumbs-up sign from the HSDC, it’s time to see how I’ll fare when I’m already in Lukore. Sana di ako nerbyusin! hahaha.
