Praying for a Prius

Filed under: Uncategorized — delamar @ 4:52 pm

Okay, so today I got the Toyota Prius from Chico. He got to drive it for a week and today it’s my turn to get a feel of this eco-friendly car. Now, what most people worry about…speed freaks like me, at least is…will it be as fast as the normal car? The answer is a resounding — Oh, my god, YES!!!

Granting that I haven’t taken it out of town, which I will soon with the help of some friends hopefully, the way it responds to your speed need is totally awesome. IT RESPONDS! What makes itย  eco-friendly is that it uses both electricity and fuel to get the car going. You lessen your gas emissions when it is using electricity via the battery of the car. Also the battery charges itself! Everytime you step on the brakes, the heat generated is used to charge the battery. Oh, and did I mention it is a super quiet ride? It is. Sometimes Chico and I look at each other as if to ask, “Is the engine on?” Yup, that’s how quiet it is. Quieter than my lovelife. (Oops, I’m blogging about the Prius not love…well, not yet.)

So, as an exercise and to try out something new I learned in my search of truth, love, and light in this life, I will send this request to the great cosmic void believing that whatever I ask for is already mine. I WANT MY VERY OWN PRIUS. There. Request sent.

Maybe I’ll tweet Julia Roberts for tips on the Prius…


  1. oh yeah…after this blog, I want one, too! oh great universe, please grant us our wish! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. You’re gonna own one, Delle! And hopefully, soon, someone else to drive it with. That’s to make sure your Prius won’t be quiet no more. Be safe! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Hey Delle! I don’t pray, but for you, I’ll wish very very very hard and cross every body part I can possibly cross. Perhaps I can also urge my friends who do pray to include you in their everyday prayers. LOL *Hugs*

    I still can’t believe I’m leaving a comment on YOUR blog! =)

  19. ako’y nananalig na!!! delamar! ikaw nga!!! (lol)

    but really, go easy on the car. i know it’s meant to drive ‘economically’ but if you drive it like michael schumacher in a race, kinda defeats the purpose.

    anyway, happy wishing din! ako din sana magkaron! ๐Ÿ˜›

  20. One thing nice about your blog, Delle, is that you have time to respond to our comments – and it feels good to see you doing it …it makes us feel more comfortable, as you respond to us just like in real conversation … and that’s the beauty of blog … surreal and virtual but real and actual … naks!

    • yup, it’s nice to be able to do that without time limit unlike on the show. hey, i think i might use your topic tomorrow for the top 10!

  21. If I was the great cosmic void and had the powers to grant your wishes – I would give you and chico two units each (for coding) hehehe.. and of course i’d get two units too.. But wait, if I am the great cosmic void, would I have any use for the Prius? Oh well, Free Use of the Prius is great.. =)

  27. Wow…a Toyota Prius! One of my dream cars. Hopefully it won’t be very expensive when it hits the commercial market.

    Sounds like the Prius uses KERS similar to F1. Another Wow!

    Congratulations on your new blog. We (me & wifey) are avid followers of the morning rush. Cheers!

  30. hey delle! i fell in love with the prius as well when i first saw it! i always see one in the road nowadays in singapore. kaya lang, kakalungkot ang price. a whopping 100K SGD!!! hanggang tingin na lang ako… unless the cosmic unknown answers my prayers too at manalo ako sa toto (lotto version here), he he :>

    anyways, glad that you’ve finally succumbed to the pull of blogging. may bago na kong pampalipas oras sa office. miss you guys!! i’ll see you very very soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. delle, not yet… wait for an electric car instead or a plug in hybrid. more eco-friendly… Chevy is coming out with a plug-in hybrid later on this year here in U.S… imagine, a car that runs on battery alone… no need to pump gas anymore. if you want more info, google it.

  41. Good morning,

    There are lots of things I wanted to tell you but I’ll just simplify it. You (and chico) makes me look forward to mornings, of course God and family first on mind. Thank you for making me laugh every morning even sometimes people are staring at me especially when I’m in public vehicles. I just don’t mind them I have my own happiness, inggit lang sila. LOL! LOL! I learned a lot from you (and chico), useful things and kalokohan things. LOL! LOL! Simply the best, whenever I heard the word “DJ’s”, the first thing that comes to my mind is “CHICO & DELAMAR”. God Bless. Sana lalo pa kayong tumagal! i โค u.
