Alvin & Elizabeth Wedding Dinner - Raffles Marina on 25th November 2006

Alvin & Liz, a great couple, knew them when they were fresh undergrads entering the University of Queensland and I somehow became their "Big Brother" and took care of them (my juniors) during their initial months of transition from a rat race country to a laid back country.

From knowing them, helping them and watching them how they became a couple till their wedding day, it had been a great journey of friendship and fun, becoming a tour guide (bringing them to tour around Queensland), display model answers (university assignments). I was honoured to be invited for their wedding dinner on 25th November 2006, witnessing their solemnisation with their fellow peers, Seb and Ally, at Raffles Marina.

A Beautiful Sunset for Alvin & Liz

I also took the opportunity to help this lovely couple to shoot photographs, for them to have extra memories of their "Big Day". With the couple's kind permission, I would be displaying some of my humble photographs.

Dedicated to a lovely and friendly couple, Alvin & Liz !

Singapore Motorshow 2006 models

The role and presence of models at motorshow and car racing events are of great significance and publicity, e.g. F1 racing, JGTC races and motorshows worldwide.

Typically, whenever there are such events going on, there would be lots of fans/people attending and you can simply find many many pictures of beautiful models on photography forums and their own personal websites.

I would like to take this opportunity to display some pictures of our beautiful models at Singapore Motorshow 2006, for their professionalism and lovely smiles that adds a different magical spark to the Motorshow 2006.

Dedicated to the models of Motorshow 2006 .........

Thank you to all the lovely models !

The "Skeleton" of an automobile ?

Folks, when you own a car, do you ever wonder how the skeleton inside really look like ? Besides, opening up the car bonnet and looking at the engine enclosed compartment, where else would you be able to look at the chasis and engine etc when you only go to the mechanics.

During Motorshow 2006, the manufacturers "opened" up their car engines and allow the visitors to have an idea of "what is really inside my engine". Car owners would have a better understanding of their cars and how the "skeleton" looks like.

Back to the Future - Cars

The world today is blessed with advancements in technology and scientific advancement. Looking around us, we humans can be very dependent on computers, mobile phones, internet (look who's blogging), travel and cars of course !

Motorshow 2006 did have some pretty interesting futuristic cars on display, they looked really cool and awesome. However, whether those cars would be available in our Singapore roads in the future would be of great interest.

Now, take a look at these unique and beautifully designed cars of the future

Nevertheless, we cannot forget our historical automobile

Formula 1 racing cars @ Singapore Motorshow 2006

Motorshow 2006 was graced by the presence of Formula 1 racing cars from Honda, Toyota and Ferrari. Even though there were only 3 models being showcased, it was still a great time to see them in Singapore. It would even be more exciting if Renault, McLaren Mercedes and the other F1 racing cars could make an appearance too at the motorshow.

Many visitors to the motorshow were happily taking photos of the Formula 1 racing cars and with F1 calender races in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Shanghai (China), Suzuka (Japan) and Melbourne (Australia), we Singaporeans are pretty near to hot, fast & furious, adrenaline racing action within 1 to 8 hours flight away (Not to mention Live TV). Looking back at the motorshow , Singaporeans are fanatics of cars (national obession ?? .... confirmed + guaranteed !!).

As you folks can deduce, I watch F1 races and I am a self-confessed car fanatic, love watching F1 races, street races, JGTC, Initial D etc etc..... Schumacher & Alonso gave F1 2006 end of season races very exciting to watch. With Schumi retirement, maybe the rise of Raikkonen, Alonso, Button ?? Let's wait for Season 2007

Looking foward, I would love to travel to any of our friendly neighbours cities and watch F1 action live at the track, bringing my telephoto lense and putting it to the test and limits. Kuala Lumpur sounds like a good destination as it is really near to Singapore.

Maybe I should consider becoming a race driver (WRX street racer), seriously ....
