My neighbore can be...a Malaysian?

The first day we moved in, my hubby told me that there is a Proton parked just outside the building. I was surprised! I have never seen a Proton (a Malaysian made car) in France before. Literally nobody knows about it. I thought maybe the owner is a Malaysian??? But so far I have not seen an Asian face in this building :-(.

This car has not moved since we came, it might be abandoned.

Even though some of the French have visited Malaysia, they still don't know that Malaysia has it's own brand of car. They were counting the number of French cars there, which is rare, and had to acknowledge that Malaysians are crazy about big cars from the Japanese manufacturers. In France? Yeah they will tell you French car is the best in the world!

    Hehe I doubt it is belong to a Malaysian. As we know how bad is proton car. :P

    It should belong to a French or a foreigner. :D They don't know how bad is a proton car.

  2. That proton is actually the generation of cars still engineered by Mitsubishi. So, technically, its still a Japanese car, just packaged in Malaysia.

    You could ask to borrow the car for your wedding. Hahahaha!

  3. cirnelle is right... it's a japanese car after all. so... in france... it's not the best car since it's not french.

  4. Maybe the owner bought the Proton fed up with it.......intended to sell but nobody wants to buy, so he left it to rot there. :P

  5. Hi Bee Ean,

    So have you found out if your neighbor is a Malaysian??

  6. BeeEan,

    Thanks for visiting my blog.
    It would be nice to have a Malaysian neighbor.

    Can masak2 together and chit-chat about our beloved country.

  7. Bee, thanks for dropping by to my blog. Do you mind if I link you to it?

  8. kuanhoong,
    You could be right, I haven't seen any Asian soul here.

    It would be nice to have a proton as the wedding car, haha, why not. But I haven't seen anybody in that car though.

    I always thought Japanese car has good quality. So if Proton is Japanese, then Japanese car is bad??

    Seriously I think you are right. The guy didn't even put a notice on the car to try to sell it. Maybe he's on vacation? You know everyone here is on vacation now.

    aiyo I don't know what owns this car lah. Maybe I should put a notice on the car, ask if you are Malaysian please contact me something like that.

    cat cat,
    Yes, it would be wonderful to find a Malaysian living just in the some block.

    sure you can link me, I linked you to my food blog already.

  9. Hi, maybe you can smell for curry through the exhaust pipe! Hey, I've got a Proton so don't knock it!

  10. Just out of curiosity, did you find out who's the owner of the "Pronto"?

  11. No I didn't have time to check out the owner. In fact the car was gone since mid Aug. So I guess it found her new owner.
