You would know who's Herbie if you've been exposed to something called the television... It's the car with plenty of emotions and it's own character
On the better side of things, here are some really fancy VW's :
A colourful 'Combi' van
And some radically airbrushed Beetle
Seriously....it was showing the Animax channel via a projected 40" screen in the inside
As things was getting really HOT out in the mid-day sun.....I spotted a TOPLESS
and also an extremely RARE model
Through the windows of a 1964 VW Combi
Here's something for a good cause.........
It's the Telur Rangers to the rescue against the selling of turtle eggs.
A pix with Patrick; The CHAMPION of the most ORIGINALLY RESTORED beetle
Patrick's home is a dedicated museum to the Volkswagen Beetle......
To check out Patrick's extreme and in-depth love for his car go here
It's definitely a pride to be an owner of these classic VW's against the modern motoring era of today

Thanks to CK, it's all paid for! We checked into Thistle, Johor Bahru; which was formerly Hyatt.
One can expect lots from the service and deco if it's something from Thistle, and they sure do know how to impress their guests.
Classy-simplicity is what I would label this hotel .
Cell members of JB-4
Later that nite, I was made a VIP guest of a Freedom event, which Calvin and his team put together at Disc0very, Holiday Inn Plaza
DJ Soul T from Australia spinning tunes from the genre of Hard-Trance
Some dancer also from Down Under which costs a whopping $20k
Though I'm not really into clubbing, what's coming up next really impressed me.
See those lines that is being 'drawn' across the board?
It's something new in the lighting arena called, Mapped Projection.
Controlled via software, the projection areas were mapped before hand and thus the image accuracy
Happy clubbers showing off their dance moves
The man behind it all, my long-time buddy, band mate, school mate, church mate, Calvin.
The brains behind events like these, Calvin, who works for JTI is responsible in the marketing sector of things.
Managed to take our first ever public bus ride from Larkin Bus Station into Singapore the next day, we ended up having brunch in Paragon Mall at Orchard.
Some dim sum and siew-loong-pau
Don't let this pix fool you, the food SUCKS! I can only taste nothing but flour in that bite.
Anyway, we headed to Swee Lee Music; The MOST important place in our itinerary this weekend.
I would call this place the Toys 'R' Us for every musician.
Calvin's a happy man after splurging over $1.4k on the stomp box and case which comes with power adaptors and other necessary input/outputs.
We then met up with Josie, another long time friend who is now working for SIA
Josie took us to this nice Jap restaurant at Raffles City Mall for dinner.
Only here that they serve..well...food that actually HAS some flavor to it.
As usual, Josie's talk of a short-walk became like an hour on foot around the city.
Seen here is the Singapore F1 race track along Nicoll Highway
The annual Vertical Marathon is held in the building on the left:
We walked and walked till we end up at Clarke Quay
More on Clarke Quay's happenings when we're back here to celebrate our birthdays in October!
