On Tuesday evening, my 5 year old 'Cendol' Ice Machine got a new look!
Why, because my son-in-law came home on that evening and asked if he could paint my ice machine with another colour! I said,' Of course Ok!'.
So, he set off to work immediately. I think he finished the work (painting all over the 'old' green colour) almost midnight.
But he was called back to the ship (he works offshore) as there was no one in charge of the small barge that night. And he didn't come back home until Thursday morning!
The first thing when I woke up on Wednesday morning was to check how it looked like after the painting he did. All the parts were dismantled and to my dismay the paint was still sticky to my fingers, means not really dried up yet. And even if the paint had dried up, my son-in-law wasn't around until Thursday to put back all the parts together. Zu and I wouldn't know how!
So I couldn't open my stall on Wednesday! Hish I thought, too many off days already. I was off last Saturday, then on Monday now Wednesday! Too many off days like this 'nanti sure kena gulung tikar' he he...
Okay, my son-in-law came around 9am on Thursday and he said he was going to put back all the dismantle parts then. Meanwhile after really checking on the paint we both agreed it was still rather 'printy' (if I press my finger on the paint I left my fingerprint on it) and my son-in-law said I better leave it another day again to dry.
I was pretty disappointed, I had got every thing ready and done with the preparations in the kitchen. Then I thought about it again. I said to myself,' Oh well, all right, another day.' I was in the 'what to do' mood already.
So today not selling too :(
I continued my housework in the kitchen.
An hour later I went to the front door when my son-in-law called me to have a look at the machine.
I was pleased with what I saw :) My ice machine looked as good as new!
See, Isn't it 'handsome' and has a new look now? :) okay, okay, 2 complete days not selling! It certainly was worth it ha ha...
This colour... I like it. Now that 'steel' looking thing on the right is the motor of the ice machine. When 'on' and connected to the electric plug, that motor moves the drill down onto the ice that makes the ice move round over the sharp blade underneath it. Ha ha.. I am not sure if you understand what I try to explain :p But that's what it does.
Whatever...to a 'Cendol' seller like me, I MUST protect that 'motor' from ever getting wet, by water or by rain. That is why I always 'bandaged' it (motor) with plastic and taped when the ice machine is in 'operation' and at all times. If the motor gets wet it will not function and the ice machine will not be of any use to me.
The 'old' green colour which have got rusty. Not very nice looking. No wonder my son-in-law wanted to paint it.
Now... I like!!
