How often do you actually leave your cars with the valet? I know most of my friends who have extremely lowered cars find it difficult to maneuver in basement parking lots especially in KL, tend to leave their cars with the valet. Most of the time, ironically, the valet’s will have a clause to say that they aren’t responsible for any of the damage. I guess the case in the image above is taking it to the extreme.
Nancy posted this on her twitter which was then followed up with a story at Car Throttle. It shows a grim picture that not everyone is a professional or may act in that manner. I guess with all the Top Gear episodes where JC turns off the traction control and then power sliding on the track, this valet must have been trying to do the same. Of course, the end results is definitely somewhat of a difference.
After a nice relaxing weekend two weeks ago, I was hammered with a long and busy week. Firstly I attended a two day seminar at the Renaissance Hotel where I checked in there on Wednesday night till Friday then followed with a quick flight up north to Langkawi with the Stories team for a wedding shoot on Saturday.
It was the first time I stayed at the Renaissance Hotel here in KL. I’ve shot there a couple of times and have seen the rooms there but my stay there throughout the two nights was a pleasant one. I had two beds to myself in the room (until now I have no idea why the firm books those rooms) and the room was fairly large. Still they can’t compare to the rooms where I stayed in the Marriot in Putrajaya.
After the 1st day at the seminar, a group of us decided to walk over to the Asian Heritage Row (located next to Sheraton along Sultan Ismail) only to be greeted on a Thursday night, a completely empty street. A lot of the bars were being renovated and those that were open, were completely empty, lest for a few tourists and our group. Apparently everyone has decided to party at Changkat Bukit Bintang according to one of my mates.
On Friday evening, I flew off to Langkawi only to be greeted by a delayed flight but at least the delay was only an hours delay. The shoot started on Saturday morning at The Westin in Langkawi. The resort looked stunning, one of the best looking resorts in Langkawi. I shall leave the details of the wedding for another blog post
On Sunday, the sky was very clear as we were flying back to KL and I managed to take a couple of shots of the scenery with my iPhone.
Thats one of the islands around Langkawi in the photo above.
I managed to capture a shot of the Penang bridge when we flew over Penang Island and Butterworth.
After a couple of rounds of playing “Flight Control”, I noticed that we were flying over PJ and I could actually see my apartment from the plane! Wo0t!
Can you see where Sri Hartamas is in the image above?
Anyway when I arrived back, I noticed this array of supercars parked in front of Tropicana City Mall. There were a huge number of Ferrari’s, Porsches, Lotus Elites, a couple of Audi R8s and a few Lambos.
Everyone was crowding around the cars, taking photos with a couple of the models there as well as with the cars themselves.
Then something caught the eye of everyone’s attention. I was also struck with shock, everyone just turned around and started looking at a car which drove by. It was the first time for me seeing this car on the road, the license plate showed that it was totally newly registered, probably a day or two ago. The driver inside had a wide smile because his car caught the attention of all the passers by amongst all of the super cars. Heck, it even made me turn and capture it on camera.
It was the brand new Proton Inspira!!! First time seeing it on the road leh….
