Featured Car: Tomica Suzuki Swift Sport

Without need to explain further, the stickers rounded on the car already told its sport specification.

The blue and red stickers blend well with the white body, the word group N shows it category in the racing group.

This car is designed to participate in Rally Racing, group N allows only minimum modification to its suspension and engine system.

If you find the stickers too striking to you, there is the other yellow Swift in the number 61 box. YeoCP//

Super GT 2008 Round 4 Sepang Race

These pictures from my colleague William during his commercial shoots at Malaysia Super GT race. Total of 25 Giga Bytes of pictures was taken with his Canon EOS 1D Mark III. Pictures were too huge to receive in email, so, I only managed to collect a few from him.

I stop following F1 after Michael quit from Ferrari. I may consider to jump into GT race after went through pictures with him. It is totally different concept from what I knew from Formula One. So, GT500 and GT300, I'm coming. YeoCP//

How Much is Hotwheels in Singapore

Obviously the pictures already told the answer; it is selling at S$3.50 including 7% GST.

You may think it’s expensive over there if you convert it to Ringgit. With conversion rate of 1 Sing Dollar to 2.4 Ringgit, it will cost you about RM8.40.

But, I perceive it as cheaper than Malaysia from perspective of dollar to dollar comparison. With the same amount of salary you earn in Singapore versus in Malaysia, it will cost you lesser there.

By means of stronger Singapore currency, you will find your money valued more. But of course, if you spend your Sing dollar in Malaysia, you will find toys here are dirt cheap, a Hotwheels will cost you S$2.45 after conversion. YeoCP//

Spotted Hummer H3 in PJ Area

I was this H3 on my way home in PJ area near section 14. It was loaded on the carrier truck. I guess, it is on it way to Naza show room.

It is definitely a huge car, the H3 painted in white colour with default rims will look fiercer if it’s in black and 22” blink rims.

Back to State, General Motor is struggling financially, GM is looking for partner to offload from its portfolio. At this present time, the 2 selected companies are Tata and Mahindra.

If the brand name awards to one of these companies, you may not see new Hummer in Tomica line-up anymore. YeoCP//
