Hello everybody…

 

Ahhh… I was off for 2 days and it felt really good. 

Why?

Well.. because 2 days ago.. I went to the track in Sepang. It was awesome. Let me tell you how it went…

 

My brother Amir (we call him Dong) called me the night before to inform me of the track day. I said to him..

“Bring it on brother..”

So.. he was to bring his Nissan S15 Silvia and me and my Type-R. Then I remembered my 2 buddies Putra & Yusmar. Called them both but only Yusmar could make it.

Aahhh.. so now we have 2 type R’s and 1 S15.

The track opens at 10am and we were all at Dengkil by 0930. And when we arrived at the tracks.. I was excited to break my R’s virginity.

 

Fellas.. this is the reason for people to buy the Type-R. To test it on the tracks.

So.. after rolling it out from the pit lane.. I started testing out the R.

I was a bit gentle on the brakes and didnt turn really hard but i kept the revs high. Just to test how it handles. Man.. I wish I could explain better but it felt like it was on rails. I’m impressed. The power kept pulling all the way to the red line and the steering is very responsive. 

I took it around a few laps then came in. Brought Amir & Madduck (Yusmar) a few laps then I wanted to time myself. 

After exiting turn 15, I floored the baby and took all 15 corners a bit more aggressive than before and I came up with a lap time of 2mins 47sec. To me.. thats good for my standards. The top speed on both straight was 190kmh

190km-h

Anyway.. the feeling was awesome and I’m proud to say that the Type-r is a bloody good car. But then again, not many would appreciate the noise and the discomfort. 

 

So..ok lah.. enough about cars.. lets talk about photography..

 

I love photography.

 

Ok done. That’s it on that topic. 

 

Hahahhaaa…

Yeah.. ok.. it was lame.. again.. 🙂

So.. previously, I was in Frankfurt. It’s Spring now and I did shoot a colleague. I think its nice. What do you think?

Thanks for dropping by.. 

Cheers.

 

P/s: so.. if people call me Mr 2min 47 sec.. it’s because of my lap time okay.. and NOTHING ELSE. Lol!!!
