The acrid smell of burnt rubber filled the driveway of our Alabang house, testimony to the difficulties I was having with hanging starts. I kept releasing the clutch prematurely, resulting in rapid backsliding down the steep incline. I think I spent half an hour on that slope, and had to content myself with the awesome achievement of slipping back only a foot before the car started moving forward again. I need to work on that more before I trust myself out in traffic.
I had no problems driving around, though, aside from always wincing whenever I thought I passed something a little too closely on my right-hand side.
I wonder if I still remember how to park.
