Busy month of July


It's been quite a month for me, I was involved in this motorsports show as a tv host, pretty last minute but hey it was hell of a ride.

Started off in Jakarta, followed by Bangkok and then Germany + Switzerland!

Didn't really take many pics in Jakarta and Bangkok but i was glad to meet up with my uni buddies Timmy and Angie in Jakarta! thanks for coming out to hang guys.

anyhow, here's some pics rather than me talking kok...

I stayed in a small town called Bad Betrich, which is about an hour away from Koln, and 1 hour and a half away from was filled with old geezers....i think it's some kinda retirement home area thingy...but very peaceful, filled with restaurants and hotels.

the flowers are just amazing in Europe.

and the Hotel i stayed in Bad Betrich also happens to be the hotel the Swiss team stayed in for the World Cup '06. That's Johan Vogel from AC Milan(i think he's still in AC Milan).

The famous church in Koln.

Then it was work at the Nurburgring, one of the cars displayed just outside of the track.

I was one of the VIP Guest with the BMW Sauber F1 Team as Petronas is the main sponsors for the team and also sponsors for the tv show i was hosting. Those buildings on the right are actually trucks that transforms into hospitality booths.

This is the BMW Sauber F1 Team hospitality camp...

and here's how it looks like inside.......

Free fine dining food, free drinks (booze included! haha) and hot babes serving as waitresses...oh yeah, no complaints!

and Robert Kubica was sitting next to my table

I also had the oppurtunity to interview Nick Heidfeld

Saw Ralf Schumacher, apparently he's a hit with the ladies, but not too much of a hit on the track

Felipe Massa

Boris Becker, and i missed taking a picture of Quentin Tarantino, he was one of the celebrity guest

Barbara, Germany's next top model

Then we went o Hinwil in Switzerland to check out the BMW Sauber F1 Team facility, i got to see how they built the steering wheel, the car, the engine and a whole lot of other shit.

F1 in Europe is a whole different experience, i would really recommend anyone to go for it.

Anyhow, i'm back in KL now, it's time to focus on Estranged for now. I heard the guys wrote some new stuff while i'm away, i can't wait to hear it.

It's gonna be a tough year end for us, lotsa work. We gotta look for a bassist, record the demo for our album, and of course keep doing shows for the time being.

I cannot wait for the second album.

See ya.
