Happy Chinese New Year first and foremost to all our readers! CNY gatherings can lead to the best of times or the absolute worst depending on who you ask.
Other factors such as the company present at these gatherings, whether it be family or friends, could also make or break what is traditionally supposed to be a time of joyous celebration.
A Myvi user had to experience what he thought was going to be a lovely CNY dinner with his friends that ended up being a roast session by his entire ‘friend group’ who kept questioning why he continued driving a Myvi.
According to the Facebook page XUAN Play, the Myvi user who had traveled back to his hometown wrote an anonymous confession to them detailing the ordeal in a justifiably bitter fashion.
The dinner started off lighthearted with the friends trading various stories amongst each other about buying new houses and cars, which the Myvi user was happy to hear.
Somewhere down the line, the conversation got a bit heated and the Myvi user was caught in his friends’ crosshairs, who each questioned why he’d chose to keep driving a Myvi.
One of them allegedly told the Myvi user that he’d look “more successful” if he traded in his current car for a brand new BMW.
In his anonymous post, he asked “So what now? Are you saying that I can’t sit at the same dining table with you guys if I’m driving a Myvi?”
He ended his post by proclaiming that he’ll pass on any reunion dinners in the future stating that “This friendship is full of rivalry and mind games, I’m so tired of it.” following that up with “Next year, SKIP!”
Many netizens, came to the Myvi driver’s defence saying how he’s better off without friends like those (which I wholeheartedly agree with) while others defended his preferred vehicle of choice.
“As long as you know your achievements, then that’s all that matters. Let them talk about whatever they want, just smile and forget about it,” commented one netizen.
Another commenter insinuated how his ‘friends’ might just be flaunting their material possessions to project an image, and also said that he’s seen Myvi drivers who live in mansions and luxury car owners who live in humbler abodes.
Out of all the supportive comments the Myvi user received, I think this one’s the best as they advised him to “Tell them Myvi is Malaysia’s supercar. It can fly, it can go underwater, but BMW can’t do that.”
If you’re Malaysian or have simply just witnessed the King of the Highway’s antics, you probably know how true that statement is.
Heck, there are even people who swag out their Myvi’s and live in them. Goes to show, you can’t beat the King.
