Do you remember the feeling when you thought you’ve finally found a parking spot in a mall or around town, just to find out that it was already occupied by a motorcycle or another small vehicle? Apparently, not only Malaysians have this feeling.
For us locals, we’ve gotten used to this disappointment, but how about foreigners who recently moved to our country?
Recently, a British man took to his LinkedIn page to share his story of how he came to dislike the Perodua Kancil which never fails to put him disappointed when looking for a parking spot.
Andrew Martin, Co-Founder at South Asia’s Leading Digital News and Content Marketing Platform shared how he has come to hate the automotive icon, the Perodua Kancil.
“I think it was designed just to inflict psychological torture!!,” he wrote.
He said that he has been driving driving around malls’ parking lots such as Mid Valley Megamall and One Utama for 10 – 20 minutes desperately looking for a parking space only to be disappointed when he found a small tucked away Kancil occupying the space.
“Only to find when I get right up to the space, that’s nicely tucked away out of sight and not visible until you get right up to the spot……is a Perodua Kancil parked right there….agghhhhh!!” Andrew said.
We feel you man
In the comment section, netizens said they can definitely relate to his pain.
“You are officially a Malaysian. Only Malaysians can understand this.” a netizen said.
“Malaysian had grown numb with the psychological torture and false hope from the Perodua Kancil during our search for parking.. apart from Kancil, u better be careful for Perodua Myvi.. they can inflict the same emotional damage as Kancil do..” another netizen shared.
Despite his bad experiences with the automotive icon, Andrew has shared positive stories of his time in Malaysia, like how amazed he is by the people here being multilingual and how he has assimilated into the Malaysian culture.
