vvroom vvroom~

Attended the trade preview of the Singapore Motorshow earlier in the day..Couldn't spend much time there as we had to rush back to office for a meeting. Managed to meet my clients and check out some of the cars on display!

See the car I'm standing next to in the picture above? That's the prototype of the first Suzuki car! So cute!! We nicknamed it the Hello Kitty car! Couldn't resist taking a pic next to it. Lao chabor with old car..so apt :P


Huey Jiuan & I~

Met Cris, one of last year's New Face girls at the Subaru booth..! Look at the difference in our height!
The models are paid very well for the shows.I heard it ranges from $800 to about $1500 per day (excluding deduction from agencies)
And the show will be on for 11 days. Good money leh!

these lamborghini made us all drool~~~

After leaving the Suzuki booth, we only had time to check out the stunt performance by Russ Swift, the world's number 1 precision driver and the world record breaker for reverse spin and parallel parking. He was invited back to Singapore again by Subaru to thrill us with his nail-biting stunts. It was my first time watching such a performance (yeah lah, very suaku) and I tell yah, my heart almost stopped several times while watching the adrenaline-pumping action.

He broke the world record for the shortest time to do 10 donuts (car rotations). I think the previous record was abt 15+ sec..he did it in 14 sec.The cars doing such stunts in movies like Fast & the Furious and Initial D are mainly 2-wheel drive but he's using a 4 wheel-drive WRX here. I heard from the Subaru guys that he'd actually did abt 13 sec during his practise yesterday so I'm sure he'll go on to break his own record some time during the next few days at the Motorshow!

Here's the record winning performance =)

Russ and the crowd celebrating when it was announced that he has broken the world record.

High-speed parallel parking stunt..

This was awesome..Russ doing his trade-mark two wheel car maneouvre..

Too bad..no pictures of chio race queens but just pop by Clubsnap tomorrow..I'm sure you'll see a lot of pics of them there. Most of them weren't on duty yet when I was there and I understand that majority of them start work officially tomorrow. Some of this year's New Face girls are engaged by the car distributors as models so I may pop by there again. Will be heading down to a party by Subaru later and Kelly Rowland of Destiny's Child fame will be there. I did see her at the Subaru booth this afternoon but she was being interviewed by Jamie Yeo..

that's her with the long hair on the right...


Popped by the party with abang for a short while..my other half had to fly off tomorrow and he hasn't packed his bags yet..Managed to take some pictures & videos though!

Subaru flew Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child fame all the way to Singapore to perform at the Singapore Motorshow. She also made an appearance at the party, singing about 5 songs.Here's a short clip.

the "Kitty" car is very cute esp with those seats!

that's alot of money for a few days of work. Those girls are lucky.

yah..that's what i told suzuki's mktg manager! those checked seats were sooo cute and retro!!

Yeah lor! alot of dough right? pays more than what some of us earn in a month. but to be fair, it isn't that easy. the distributors are quite strict in their selection of the models..they don't just choose those who look pretty. the girls have to be able to talk quite well too (they must 'sell' the car mah)..and they gotta stand for the entire day!

*GASP* That lamborghini! Sibeh CHIOO!! Wowww.. Jade Cole is 1.8?! She looks a lil' short on TV though. The rest of the contestant from ANTM must be damn tall.
Nov. 10th, 2006 04:40 am (UTC)
im not exactly sure abt the height but someone mentioned it so i assumed so hehe..
i think most of the antm girls are fairly tall. the shortest is probably abt 1.71/2.

Nov. 9th, 2006 11:00 pm (UTC)
Was Jade as unbearable in person as she is on TV?
Nov. 10th, 2006 04:39 am (UTC)
i didn't really talk much to her but she was actually very sweet & accomodating..not the diva that is portrayed.

Nov. 10th, 2006 01:30 am (UTC)
Cool, you have a photo with Jade!!!
Nov. 10th, 2006 04:42 am (UTC)
