being a busy parent can make you lose time for a lot of things. the weekends aren’t for relaxation but for doing those things you couldn’t do while rushing off to work — ironing clothes, doing the laundry, cleaning the house, folding dry clothes… and here’s one that i wish i could easily do as i did before: washing the car.
it was therapeutic for me when i washed the jeep and the car sometimes. yes, my arm hurt the next day from buffing the polish but it was enjoyable. in a limited space, washing a car is such a hassle. you have lots of things to avoid bumping into and getting wet. so one evening on my way home, i decided to get the car washed ‘professionally’ nearby.
Xpress Autoserv is along Esteban Abada parallel to Katipunan Avenue. i only had time and money for a car wash (P120) but i really wanted to have the car waxed, specially now it’s rainy season.
i arrived with two others being serviced. i just got my valuables out of the car, left my bag and some change and other stuff inside. when i said i was just having a wash, they immediately went to work. now what’s included in your P120-car wash? a foam shampoo, wiping of interior panels and dashboard, vacuum of interior, washing of mats, and tire black. all that done in under 30 minutes!
some would complain of swirl marks. but we don’t own an expensive car. besides, swirl marks can be remedied later when i can get the car detailed. (i’m planning on doing that. specially to remove those battle scars the car has acquired throughout the years). for now, the wash to remove dirt and grime on Percy is enough.
