They say a woman will not marry a man who have nothing. Well, let me tell you a story. A love story, if you will. I did. I married a man who had nothing. I met my husband for the first time when I was 17. He was my college senior and he had nothing to offer. Being just a student, he had no car, no house, no money, no nothing. All he had was a third or fourth hand old motorcycle, and he used it to fetch me around on our dates and when we got married and had a son two years after that, the motorcycle was still our main vehicle. We built our family at a pretty young age and we were still student then. Raising a family was tough, especially when you are struggling to keep your grades up in college, but despite the lacking of material things that could make our daily lives better, it was still the happier and less complicated times. Things were so simple back then and we had more time to spend with each other. Unlike now, we have almost everything; a car, a house, money to spend and yet, time is a rare commodity. Ironically, that’s the price we had to pay in exchange for economic stability and all the lavish and material things that we have now.
Things may not be the same as before, but we do appreciate what little and limited time that we get to spend together these days. We both make a point not to stop dating and travel to interesting places together every now and then, and our most recent one was a 2D1N escapade in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.
As mentioned in my previous post, we were invited by Maison Moments to experience the MAD scooter during our stay in Port Dickson.
I may not say it earlier in my previous post, but being given the opportunity to ride on those electronic scooter somewhat allow both my husband and I to travel back in time and reminisce our earlier years together. You see, after buying a car, we somewhat got rid of our motorcycle and never rode on one since then. The MAD scooter is probably the next closest thing to riding a motorcycle, I guess.
Thistle Port Dickson was the location of our first riding session. The place itself is quite laid back and picturesque.
Checking out our rides. Kid was excited about it too.
Listening to instruction on how to operate the MAD scooter before we ride away.
I’m not much a two-wheeled vehicle rider. I was always the passenger. But my husband is an excellent rider, and he was so excited during our first riding session.
Check out my husband’s commentary video on MAD scooter.
My husband recorded this with his smartphone while riding the MAD scooter in Thistle alongside with other invited bloggers. Pretty cool, huh? But guys, please don’t do this when you ride on a MAD scooter. I wouldn’t recommend recording or snapping pictures while riding like my husband did. It’s not really safe and safety should not be compromised during all MAD rides.
The MAD ride in Thistle Port Dickson is pretty easy and leisurely. There’s no challenging route or difficult slope for your to deal with.
The MAD ride in Thistle Port Dickson is perfect for family who wants to take a relaxing evening stroll at the resort with a beach in the background.
Life is so funny. I used to want to give all I have to gain financial stability and all the material things, but now, I wonder what I can give to return to those simple and uncomplicated days again. But then again, no point being wistful. Whatever it’s worth, I’m glad we get to spend our time riding MAD scooter in Thistle Port Dickson. It was indeed really fun and memorable. I really enjoyed the adrenaline rush and the little trip down memory lane. I wish I can do it again, someday.
