Working at Honda?

I was working at Honda’s Showroom (KAH Motor) while I waited for my car to be repaired since 0830 this morning. One thing Honda has done right is the 3S (Sales, Service, Showroom) Center.

Compact design

I took my Honda City to an air-cond service center behind Petronas at Taman Peringgit Jaya for a service.
