Ryan and I drove up to Mount Faber next. That was a nice test of the Polo's engine, I thought. The car took us up with no problem. And I am not that light, you know that, right?
Ryan also took the opportunity to try the Hill Hold feature. On a slope, if you stop and lift your foot off the brake pedal, the car is supposed to continue activating the brakes for 3 seconds as you transition over to the accelerator pedal, to keep the car firmly on the slope without rolling back.
Did it work? Yep. But I wished Ryan had chosen to try this without me in it.
I know what you're thinking, what are two grown men doing up in Mount Faber? Romantic as the view was, once again, I was with the wrong person (like our Ratatouille Paris trip). I would have preferred seeing the view here with my wife.
Our next stop was Sentosa, and we gave out lots of goodie bags at the the Imbiah Lookout, Beach Station, and Palawan Beach.
We drove past the big Merlion and it loomed over us.
We were a little worried about the weather but so far we've been very blessed. When we broke for lunch at 2pm, the rains came. Then when we finished lunch, the rain stopped.
