Farewell Blue Dumpling
25 November 2021
The Blue Dumpling is gone. Rehomed, not dead.
A humble ride, Perodua Myvi with the heart of a lion.
The Proton is Malaysia’s first car, the Perodua is its second car. That would be the 'dua' in Perodua. A Daihatsu chassis with a Toyota engine. A unique blend of average. Dumpling, because it is round, like a dumpling. Blue, because it is blue.
An unremarkable car capable of remarkable feats. Two trips to Thailand and a colossal journey to Laos. The first Myvi to Luang Parbang, apparently. A round trip over 5000km taking three weeks.
The first Perodua in Luang Parbang?
