Just Another Day..

.. Well, not exactly.

I kinda ran out of ideas to put as the title.

Today, my housemate, a.k.a. my brother's friend since secondary school, just went back to Penang to celebrate Chinese New Year.

Okay, to make it easier, the housemate's name is Siew Keat. Also known as Teoh amongst his Australian friends.

I must say that I owe him quite a bit because he's been driving us around since I arrived in Tasmania. It's awesome to know someone who has a car. And it's great ot see him again. We've been friends for probably 11 years now.

But he left, and my brother will be attending an armour party at Lencheston (SP?). So, I'll be home tomorrow. Great.

Anyway, a friend I just got to know through my brother's ring of friends, Jasper mentioned something new to me. In fact, everything is new to me today. It's called Targa. It's like, an association on enthusiastic drivers or racers get their cars of whatsoever and compete in this. Like, if you were watching Top Gear - during the Classic Car challenge as well, you'd be able to see a lot of familiar cars driving around. The best thing compared to Malaysia is..

.. Malaysia, you don't get them to sponsor such events and associations. Because if they do, they tend to wait for you to get in the car, and as you're about to race off, the car gets stopped by police asking for bribery.

So, we had a look. We dropped by to see the drivers when they were resting at the hotel, but most importantly, we could check out the cars being parked there. And they don't mind at all!

Saw a couple of familiar cars, and unfamiliar ones, which is pretty awesome.

For the supercar fans, I only managed to see the Lamborghini Gallardo and the Aston Martin Vantage. Awesome-ness..

The rest were the usual. Japanese tuned cars - Subaru Impreza WRX STI Hatchback, Nissan GTR, Nissan Skyline GTR R-33 & R34, etc

Check thepictures out in Facebook, for the moment, here are a pinch of my favourites..
