"Reverse right... Oh shit! F*ck! Reverse left! Left!"

Back home early today after passing my Class 4S driving test.

Felt really nervous until I found out who the tester was. Haha it was that friendly fat Indian guy whom everyone loves, so there wasn't much pressure. He cracked a few jokes that made me laugh. A lot.

Well for those who don't really understand the title, basically in the case of trailers, you first have to steer left in order for the trailer turn towards the right side. Only then can you reverse right to align the vehicle with the trailer and have your vehicle moving towards the right.

Well, nothing much has happened, so I'll end here.

A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square - Vera Lynn

Heard this song on the radio during Sunday duty. Love this kind of music.

When two lovers meet in Mayfair So the legends tell
Songbirds sing and winter turns to spring
Every winding street in Mayfair falls beneath the spell
I know such enchantment can be
'Cause it happened one evening to me

That certain night, the night we met,
there was magic abroad in the air,
There were angels dining at the Ritz
and a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
I may be right, I may be wrong,
but I'm perfectly willing to swear
That when you turned and smiled at me
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square

The moon that lingered over London town;
poor puzzled moon, he wore a frown
How could he know we two were so in love,
the whole darn world seemed upside down
The streets of town were paved with stars,
it was such a romantic affair,
And as we kissed and said goodnight,
a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square

Our homeward step was just as light
as the tap dancing feet of Astaire
And like an echo far away,
a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
I know 'cause I was there, that night in Berkeley Square
