Hey peeps…

Whoah.. It’s been very hectic lately. With work and all. Busy like hell lah.. Hehehhe…

Anyway, even though I was busy, I did manage to squeeze in a story I did about flying. It’s very interesting. Very entertaining. In other words, very nice lah.

Here it is:  The A-Z on how to be a pilot

Do have a read if you’re bored.

Ahhh… now comes the best part. About them flying cars. Not literally flying lah, but if there were wings on my ride, it should get airborne.

A few weeks ago, there was a private track day. I was lucky enough to enter as someone pulled out last minute. It was a few days after the F1 race so, the rubbers on the track really helped. Will share some images and a video made by my friend.

Here’s some pics pulak…

Well peeps, if ever you need to vent your frustration by driving like a mad man, this is the place to do it. Racing on the road is dangerous. Do it legally on track. This is a community message by ari7474.

Thanks for reading.. and oh.. Happy Labour Day! 😀 😀 😀

Let me tell you that since my last post, there has been plenty of happenings in my life. 

Some ups and downs that really shook me a bit but it has stabilized a little now. Things have settled in and I can story a bit laa what happen. I’ll tell you about the “ups” okay..

 

“Say again??” What.. you want me to tell you what happen now..?

You’re so excited that you cant wait another minute to hear my story???

 

Oh well.. if you insist.. who am I to resist right.. hehehe…

 

Last week.. jeng..jeng..

 

jeng..jeng..

 

suspense is building up eh..

 

cold sweat is trickling down your neck..

 

jeng..jeng…

 

TADAAAA!!!!

Cool kan..kan???

I’ve got an idea.. why dont ya’ll go and check it out and tell me what you think.

What? You dont have time to do so?

Eh.. Come on laa.. It’s really nice.. Got nice pictures and all.. Very pretty. hehehe..

 

 

And then.. guess what again?

I went to the Sepang track with all the other Type-Rs. It was a really good outing with those guys but the main thing that made my day was.. I broke my own personal best time. Just like Usain Bolt. I broke my own personal world record. Previously, it was 2min 47sec but this time, I did 2min 44sec. That’s shocking news kan.. I shaved off 3 seconds. And I was wearing jeans some more. Imagine if I was using shorts and didnt eat breakfast and go poo poo before the session, I could cut down a few  more seconds kan. Sure become very terrer and then Ferrari would call me up to replace Massa and all.. Haish..

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

Picture was shot by Madduck 😉

 

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?

Oh shoot.. Its late and I have to sleep coz I’m working tomorrow. anyway.. will update more when I have more stories to yap about. 

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!!!
