Hometown Vacation

After my car was robbed, I didn't manage to find a replacement window on the same day since I'm using a Nissan 180sx which is pretty rare here in Malaysia. And finding parts for the legendary car can be quite a chore sometimes. Parking the car in the city without a window is way too risky. So, I decided to go back to my hometown in Seri Manjung, Perak (which is about 4 hours drive) until my friends at Drift House manage to find me a window. My folks' house is a gated bungalow and I'm sure my car would be safe and I'll have peace of mind. Luckily, Drift House called me up a few days later with good news. They've found me a window! 

In the meantime, I met up with some Manjung drifters and decided to join them for a drift event in Kampar, Perak. We gathered at a workshop in Lekir before we head off to the drift tournament. It was a VERY hot day. I couldn't stop sweating!

The convoy to Kampar was great! We had about 24 drift cars (I think) which made it a pretty amazing sight. Our team (Manjung Drift Team) manage to get 3rd place in the overall drift / autokhana time attack. I didn't take part though! I was just there to support and help them change their tires. LOL  Since I didn't bring along my drift rims, all I could do was watch and yell.

Oh, this is my cat, Biby, which was not harmed in any way during 
the drifting tournament. She's just sleeping in a weird position!
