"WICKA"





My son and daughter had been asking when I would  bring my car home from the dealer shop. I was a bit unsure last Sunday to reply coz I'm confused whether to be happy or not for having this car as a gift for my passed birthday about 10 days ago. I just told them , when I have nothing to do on Monday or maybe Tuesday , then I'll take it home. My son called it a "crap" the moment he saw it in the dealer's shop not knowing it was my car. He even told me I must be joking if it was my car coz it's not really his type . You know what type of cars boys like and this type I had doesn't even come close to his taste ! What can I do ? I just told him, I'm happy to have a car. No matter what it is , old or ugly as long as it takes me to my destination in 1 whole piece, I'm thankful !



It's a used 2003 Mitsubishi Magna Executive Auto Sport model. It was well maintained eventhough there are some minor scratches. I had driven it for test-drive and it moved smoothly the way I want it to go. The color is not also that bad  coz I like red to dark red colors most of all .



I personally named my car "WICKA" which for me means wicked angel. Wicked referring to me , angel for the car. But when I searched the internet for the word Wicka , this is what i found which is very interesting :

Wicca (pronounced /ˈwɪkə/) is a Neopagan religion and a form of modern witchcraft. Often referred to as Witchcraft or the Craft,[1] its adherents are commonly referred to as Wiccans, or as Witches or Crafters. Developing in England in the first half of the 20th century,[2] Wicca was popularised in the 1950s and early 1960s by a Wiccan High Priest named Gerald Gardner, who at the time called it the "witch cult" and "witchcraft," and its adherents "the Wica."[3] From the 1960s onward, the name of the religion was normalised to "Wicca."[4]

and what is more interesting about this name I had given my car is that :
"Wicca" pronounced (Wik-kah) designates a male Witch.

OH My God ! Now my invented name gets even more creepier !
Well anyway, I had already officially cast the name on my car "WICKA" and I had hanged my self -made beaded Angel charm by the rear view mirror for luck and protection.


I'm not superstitious but oh well, I like to see this Guardian Angel hanging infront of me everytime I drive "Wicka" on the road. I'm sure my new buddy and I will have lots of fun exploring places here in Perth, Western Australia.
