It came as a surprise when Volkswagen Singapore offered the Scirocco to me for a test drive. As the current 2015 model is Euro 5 emission standard and is no longer available for sale in Singapore, technically this blog review is not to promote sales…

As my own Volkswagen Jetta approaches the first 15000 km, VW Singapore invited me to review the Touran, a 7-seater MPV. Since its debut in 2003, this all-new second generation model launched in 2016 offers new design, expanded interior space, lower weight, efficient engine. The…

This year, I managed to attend the Singapore Motorshow 2017. Last year I was invited but I was down with a terrible illness.

Buying the Volkswagen Jetta is probably one of the best choice I have made in a car. Not just from a consumer perspective, but also from blogging. After publishing my blog about the Jetta, I was subsequently contacted by VW Singapore and offered me opportunities to…

For a sedan driver all my life, test driving the Toyota Fortuner is quite an experience that will not come by frequently. The Toyota Fortuner 2.7L dual VVT-i is the much-needed refresh of the line since 2005 – 11 years later. I had a shock…

I was really delighted when Volkswagen Singapore contacted me to express their interest to loan me the Sportsvan Highline for a review, after they read my blog on the VW Jetta. My initial thought was: are there significant differences compared to my Jetta? After a 3-day test…

I recalled a true story where my colleague “lost” his car in a HDB car park. To add to the panic, it was a new car. He kept walking around the vicinity and wondered how it could have been “stolen”. An hour (or less) later,…

Now that I have driven 1000 kilometres on the road with the Volkswagen Jetta 1.4 TSI Highline with 7-speed DSG gearbox, it’s time to pen down my opinions about this new ride. Without a doubt, it has taken me some time to get used to…

I was lucky to be able to buy my first car in 2007 at a low price thanks to the low COE. And thanks to my blogging habit, you and I are able to reminiscent the journey in 2007 from these posts: http://musicphotolife.com/2007/07/test-drive/ http://musicphotolife.com/2007/08/more-test-drive/ http://musicphotolife.com/2007/08/my-first-car/…

ASUS line of business has mostly been computer hardware and accessories. So it came as a surprise that ASUS has launched a car camera in Singapore. I requested for a test unit and they promptly delivered for my review. I have a car camera for about 3 years…

My 8-year old daughter came up with a list of reasons why she likes the Volvo S60 T5 Drive-E car which I reviewed a while back.   1. Cool wheel rims (I have to agree!). 2. Side mirror closes when the car is parked, and tilts down when…

Yesterday, while driving out to buy back breakfast for the family, I noticed a warning light on my dashboard. Instinct told me that it cannot be. I service my car faithfully every 10,000km, and I service at the official Chevrolet Singapore service centre, Alpine Motors.…

The Jabra Freeway is a speakerphone for your car that connects to your mobile phone via bluetooth and allows you to answer or make calls without wires and hassle. I had a go with the review unit and here are a list of nice features.…

My dad got passes to the Formula 1 Grand Prix Day 2 (Saturday) race at Zone 1. Thanks to dad, I experienced the F1 race for the first time. NX11 16mm F2.4 1/350s ISO100 Instead of bringing my bulky DSLR, I brought the compact Samsung…

Rainmaker

November 23, 2008 1

The next time I needed rain, all I do is to send my car for a car wash. After a week of cumulated dirt, tree sap, and bird shit, I decided to send my car for a wash today before lunch. Actually, I was supposed…

This morning I had to travel to work by public transport as I sent my car for 10,000km servicing to the authorised service centre. Initially I dreaded the thought that no longer can I get from home to office seamlessly. But as I got on…
