It was a night of mayhem! A red and loud night where the closet Ah Lian in me was let loose. A night where I let my hair down and drank to my limit.
Everyone that night was PUMA-fied. Some to the extend of dressing from top to bottom all in Puma outfit all in red. It was Puma’s Red in My Head Circuit Party, in line with the F1 season. Free music, free party, free flow alcohol! With all the stress and tension within me for so long, all these were enough to squeeze out the ah lian in me.
ZOOM! ZOOM! ZOOM!!! That’s all I heard on Friday and Sunday. My eardrums hurt like hell can? But its all worth it because I got to experience my very first F1! In fact, this year, there were so many blogger related activities and invites surrounding F1, I’m sure some of you out there are feeling breathless after the long weekend of F1. So exciting right? Hope next year, FIA will recognise us as media and give us accreditation to attend F1 as press. Ok, I am dreaming… coming back to reality, here’s my experience with 2009 Formula 1 Night Race Singapore Grand Prix…
On Friday night, Abang and I headed over to catch the F1 drivers practice. Since its a practice day, the crowd was sparse. But this gave us the opportunity to enjoy the experience without having to squeeze with the crowd. Being able to stand up there on the roof top to watch the drivers practice is a big thing for us already. Real great feeling!
So sad right? Long weekend but I’ve to work (together with my team). But to make it less sad for us, I want you to come join us
at work for fun this long weekend!
Last Sunday, it was Minmin day! It was THE day that Abang and I will always look forward to every month.
That morning, we picked Min up at 10am and head over to Kallang for breakfast. It was something we don’t get to do often. After breakfast, we headed over to Sims Drive for a K1 race with fellow blogger friends.
The concept of K1 was born when CS Racing and the Singapore Motor Sports Association came together with one common goal – to develop the future of Motorsports in Singapore by raising awareness and interest among the community.
There was also a F1 model car on display for photo taking and display of photos from past F1 seasons too. Infusing the F1 experience even in the neighborhood. How I wish the K1 karting experience would be around Sengkang! How can not take photos since we’re there leh?
Before getting ourselves into the race, everyone will have to sign an indemnity form. Maciam like sign our life away lah! But this is necessary for all such activities. Nothing to worry about, cause safety always come first for the organisers and helpers at the carnival.
Minmin wanted to drive around the circuit too, but she’s underage. So we took a photo with the K1 karts instead. She was a little shy as usual at first, but eventually went for it, the temptation too hard to resists. There was also a little boy who was crying out loud at the carnival, wanting to join his elder sisters and father in the race, but he’s way too young for it. The organisers pacified him by bringing him in to take a shot with the K1 kart on display too. This display is for use at the safety talk prior to every race.
Experience with the kart was fun! Though speed limit was capped at 25km/h for safety reason at such carnival, driving the K1 kart around the narrow circuit was still quite a challenge and still as exciting. I’m sure the other bloggers who were there all have their stories to tell. Links to their post at end of this post. Abang went for the race too. He loved it! And we’ll be doing it again!
If you would like to give K1 karting a try too, head over to their carnival over the next few Sundays! Each race at $5.
