Emirates Singapore Derby 2015!


Attended the 20th Emirates Singapore Derby 2015 recently!

with my partner Elaine.. who is a blogger as well.

Trying to imitate a pose by Aaron Kwok. Ahem..

My partner Elaine.. isn't this shot very nice?
Definitely.. cos it was taken by me! :P

We were each given these to bet for each race.. the winner who guessed correctly will win a Chopard pen.. And we had a winner from our table that day! :)

Horse 10 for the Emirates Singapore Derby 2015!


After the race.. the jockeys have to weigh themselves with the heavy items placed at the side so as to be qualified for the race.

And this was the jockey for the winning horse of the Emirates Singapore Derby 2015!
He was asked to say a few words about his win! :)


After that we proceeded to the Level 4.. where it has a breath-taking view of the racecourse!

The next batch of horses coming out from the parade ring!
Parade ring is a place where the racing horses would parade themselves in front of the public so that they can decide on which horse to bet based on their judgement on the horses.


Horses are really very nice animals.
I hope to own a horse one day.. and spend some of my time with them.. :)

At the Level 4 here.. specially for VIPs.. they have the Best Dressed Contest! Interesting! :)

A photo with Claire! :)

And a new friend here.. Jing Ting whos really sweet n friendly. :)

Also not forgetting a photo with my good friend HP! :)

It was my First time attending the Emirates Singapore Derby!
It was a Great Experience!

So what's in the Goodie Bag?

 Heavenly King Aaron Kwok inside the Goodie Bag! I mean he's on the Winning Post magazine in the goodie bag. Isn't he really handsome?
A booklet for the Emirates Singapore Derby 2015
It contained these information.. Programme Highlights, How to Bet, etc.
And these were the races on that day! :)
Here are the items specially from Emirates!

And there is one more gym bag from Emirates as well.. and I gave it to my partner, Elaine!
Hope she likes it! :)

Last but not least.. there's an Emirates Bear also..
And I gave it to Elaine too.. so that she has two bears and her kids wouldn't fight! Lol.

All-New Volkswagen Passat 2015 Media Launch!

At the All-New Volkswagen Passat Media Launch on 29th July 2015.

First.. Introduction by the Managing Director of Volkswagen Singapore, Steffen Schwarz

Followed by James Page - General Manager, Marketing

And lastly, Colin Yong from the Public Relations & Communications

 As you can see Volkswagen Passat is ranked No. 1
hence clinching the Car of the Year 2015 title.

The past 7 Generations of Volkswagen Passat!

Wrapping up!

 The Passat Comfortline version.


Very nice seat controls on the side..




The Passat Highline version.



When the brake is engaged, the LED rear lights will switch from horizontal light signature to vertically oriented brake light signature which produces three vertical lines.
The visual signal change makes the brake lights more perceptible, and this increases traffic safety.
I personally feel that this is COOL! :)


This is another Highline model of a different colour.

Nice food and desserts served at the launch.
I must say that the desserts are really Good!
From the Regent.

The green one is a dessert with Pistachio and the purple thing is actually a very soft dessert with cream in it. And the macaroon is the BEST I've ever eaten! It's not very sweet like those I ate outside. It is just nice and delicious! Thumbs up Regent! :)



So Volkswagen gave me a Passat?





Yes.. they gave me a very nice display model of it!
I think its a very good goodie bag item for car launches! :)

Its a pretty simple but yet exclusive media launch.
I had good opportunity getting up-close to the car and also got to sit-in and have the first-hand feel of it!


At the media launch..
I also got to see editors like David Ting from Torque magazine, Deborah Tan from the Material World and Rene Kevin Anthony from REVV Motoring!

Thanks Volkswagen Singapore for the invitation!
