Its been a while since I updated my website, well its because I was on a long and strange trip recently. 

Starting with Penang for a few days.

Photo taken by a friend... out of focus ... *sigh*

Then down to Kuala Lumpur, finally went down to Sepang International Circuit. Yes there were cars incoming!!!

Then off to Tokyo, Japan for a few days. Very nice city, must go back to visit some day!

Me being a tourist. 

Actually Ive been back for over a week. But was kinda busy with stuff, finally got time to start sorting out the photos. I'll try my best to process my photos and publish them. Hopefully wont take years to do that :)

Till then, Cheers

Old School Convoy TWO Serian

So after the previous Classic Car Convoy, two weeks (11.03.2012) later we all headed out again for ANOTHER convoy. I think because the previous one we didnt get to play much, as the rain was pretty heavy. No one had anychance to show off their rides :P

And after the convoy, we were a CLUB (if you drive a classic, we want you!). Looks like many clubs are getting it on in Kuching these days. Good sign!

Okay, so as per usual it started way early in the morning. The convoy gathered at the usual meeting place and was suppose to start going at 7.00am. I arrived at 6.50am. Umm.. haha! So I did not manage to capture much photos at the gathering place. 

Then we headed off towards Serian. It was a relatively sunny drive with spots of rain here an there. But a much better drive than previous trip :) I was busy running about mounting my trusty Sony DSC-T90 here and there trying to capture some footage which I had in mind since last convoy. You can view the finished 'product' at the end of the post. You can skip ahead if you do not want to read my mumblings :)

After a good hour of driving we finally reached Serian. We kind of caused a scene by showing up in such volume and variety. haha. Becaused we were parked between the only petrol kiosks there, most heavy trucks and such could not get to their fuel~ haha ! 

Moke! This ride is so cute! 

Fast bugs! Could not catch up!

Bug Bums hehehe

Silly grins :)

It was difficult to take any photos with traffic slowing down to admire all the classics on display. So after 15 mins I gave up trying >_< and headed for morning coffee at a nearby kopitiam

Then it was decided we should continue the journey to Ranchan Pool. Some decide to head back to Kuching by this point. Serian to Ranchan Pool is just a 10 mins drive away. Have not been there in ages. If I had known we were headed there I would have brought my towel and have a go in the pool!

So while everyone was busy resting under the shade. I was out trying to capture some images. Turns out I did not take as much as I imaged. =\ Or hoped.

Then we all decided to head back down to Kuching. With a slight detour unknown to many. 

We actually stopped at Siburan, community hall or something. Didn't know it was open for public I just followed in. :) Loved it because finally, out of the SUN!

Six Totoya Celicas.. Three by same owner >_< (envy)

Very mint Mini. Love the er... colorful color! Hmm.. very mint fresh! 

Golden bug!

While we were lining up the cars for a group shot. We seemed to have attracted a large crowd. People were piling in and taking posing and taking photos with the car. Haha it was a real slight.  

It was fun. Took me a while to complete the video, as I shot nearly two hours of footage, and had to compile it into under 10 mins video. So enjoy it. Play in HD if your connection is fast enough. 

Warning: The video gets very dizzy in the middle (4 minute mark on wards). Sorry about that, I was under the influence of flu medication when I was editing the video. 

So that concludes our little trip on an early sunday morning. Thanks for taking the time to read, if your interested to join us with your classic ride.

More photos at club facebook gallery. And some more at my facebook gallery.

Just back

Just landed back in Kuching today after a weekend over at Miri. I was there for work and also over the weekend paid for my own accommodations and such to see the Miri annual drag race. 

Miri SkyIts good to be back in Kuching! With all the failing broadband which I have been hearing people complain over the weekend. At least it works sometimes, Celcom 3g in Miri is just sad. =( Just wanted to share the above image which I shot at the race track at Old Lutong Air Strip. Man, it was a bloody hot day.

More pics to come at http://www.kaichia.com and more details on the trip later la...

 

Time to rest my weary head! Good night all!
