More Showroom Babes @ KLIMS 2013

KLIMS-Babes-F09

Ford’s Showroom Babe, Nui Nuy on duty at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2013

The Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show is coming to an end soon. The constant stream of visitors to the show just proof that no matter what’s the condition of the economy, cars are still man’s object of desire. Some buy cars for fun, some for showing off but some out of sheer necessities for their daily commute. Due to the high import duties for cars in Malaysia, many Malaysian in their lifetime will not have the opportunity to own one of those fancy dream cars. They could only come to this type of motor show to view and ogle their dream rides. Since most of those million dollars cars like Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Roll Royce, etc were not on display, they could do the next best thing…. ogle at the beautiful showroom babes on duty at the show. I would have to say, most of these beauties are world class by any standard! If you do not have the opportunity to visit the show for whatever reason, feel free to get to know these ‘pretties’ here. There’s no entrance fee. 🙂

Auto Show Models @ Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2013

KLIMS-2013-models-A13

Professional Auto Show Model has come a long way in ensuring a successful motor show. They are first and foremost very attractive, friendly, model trained and well verse in the specification of the vehicles they are attending to. They used to be just eye candies in any auto show but their professionalism has seen much improvement over the years.

Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2013 is back again this year after a ‘no show’ last year. Unfortunately this year, the auto show has somewhat shrunk in term of the number of car manufacturers and companies taking part. Off hand, I could see the absence of Proton, Malaysia’s own auto maker and Naza, one of the biggest auto importer in Malaysia. I don’t particular give a hoot about Proton since Proton cars are all over the streets and dump sites. If anyone wanted to have any inkling of what’s coming out from the Proton stable’s they just have to visit Mitsubishi and Honda booths and they could feast their eyes on what’s coming out from Proton in the next 30 years. What I miss was Naza’s stables of Imports like Maserati, Ferrari and other exotic parallel imported models.

The major European marques like Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Ferrari, Land Rover, Jaguar, etc have been avoiding the Malaysian Auto Show like it’s some kind of bubonic plague. I don’t blame them as Malaysian Auto Industries are so protected and inward looking, they would rather spend their money in Thailand, Indonesia and Philippines. Malaysia is just too small a country to have it’s own auto brand, coupled with uncompetitive local market, lack of brains behind the brand and the zero level of automotive technologies. They should just close down already. Period.

Malaysia Grand Prix Sale 2013 Launched

The beautiful fashion showcase in conjunction with the launch of the GP Sale.

The beautiful fashion showcase in conjunction with the launch of the GP Sale.

Kuala Lumpur, 16th March 2013

The Formula 1 Grand Prix returns to Malaysia this year, and with it, comes the exciting Grand Prix Sale which takes place from 16th March to 7th April, sweeping the nation with 23 days of glorious discounts and promotions.

The sale, which is supported by the Bukit Bintang-KLCC Tourism Association, was launched by Tourism Minister Dato’ Sri Dr. Ng Yen Yen at the Bukit Bintang entrance of Pavilion KL.

This was followed by a fashion show by models and production company Andrewmodels.

These sale campaigns and events are part of the Tourism Ministry and Tourism Malaysia’s initiatives of turning Malaysia into a leading international shopping destination, which has received international recognition. Last year, Kuala Lumpur ranked second best shopping city in the Asia Pacific according to the latest Globe Shopper Index, while CNN report listed Kuala Lumpur as the best shopping destination in the world.

Last year, Malaysia received 25.03 million tourists, with tourist receipts amounting to RM60.6 billion. Shopping contributed to 30.7% of the total tourist revenue, with a grand total of RM18.56 billion.

There’s no denying that tourism played an important part in the economic development of Malaysia. I just hope the government will be more proactive in improving the few sore problems that affected KL in particular – taxi service, cleanliness, snatch thieves and transportation issue in general.

Super GT Queen 2012: Round 2 Audition @ Pavilion KL

Malaysia very own Motorshow Bombshell, Leng Yein posing with fellow judges, Levin Seow.

It won’t be called a Car Show or Motor Racing event if there are no beautiful women or sexy race queen to be seen. It’s even more pronounced if the racing event is imported from Japan, the land of raising sun famous for manga, anime, cosplay – gothic or otherwise, sexy maid cafes and everything cute, weird, sultry and out of this world!

But hey, if you are in dream land now, snap out of it! This is Malaysia. You ain’t going to see any sexy or “poke eye” clothing on any of these beauties here. But at least you can always imagine the sexy Leng Yein posing on top of her pink Hummer….. yummy!

The difference between the SUPER GT and other races is that it is one of only a few races in the world which allows fans to get up close and personal with the drivers and cars.

Hopefully the new organizer will inject fresh ideas and better perspective for the benefit of the sports in Malaysia.

Models at KLIMS 2010

One of the most beautiful model at Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2010. She was friendly, hard-working and very courteous towards all the kids and parents that wanted to photograph with her Toyota FT-HS hybrid.

The Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show is coming to an end soon. Finally, I have visited all the major manufacturers’ booths and are now more informed on the latest car models from the various brands. I have also taken photographs of most of the models on duty at their respective booths too.

I am quite impressed with all the efforts and preparation put in by the various manufacturers. They deserved a round of applause. It’s a pity that some manufacturers decided not to take part in this fantastic event. Overall, the turnout was quite good and many photographers like myself took the opportunity to improve our photography and model-search skills.

With that in mind, I dedicated this posting to all the beautiful, intelligent and hard-working models that have to work very long hours during the Motor Show. Thank you for posing tirelessly for all the demanding visitors. 🙂

Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show ’10

KIA is showing off its All-NEW Sorento in a big way..... The sexy new Sorento is matched aesthetically by this lovely model in all departments, especially the design and look departments. It no longer lack the character and creative initiative that so defined the Japanese and German motor vehicles.

Kuala Lumpur International Motor Shown is back in 2010, after an absent of almost 4 years. While there are many more bread and butter cars on display this year, there is truly an absent of a few marques that  truly defined the Malaysian car market in total.

The European marques like Audi, BMW, Land Rover, Mercedes Benz, VW and Volvo are clearly missing from this edition of KLIMS’10. So is Ford from US. Why? Has the challenging motor vehicles sales environment in the past few years taken its toll on these manufacturers? I doubt so. Or are they collectively trying to send a message to the government and their customers that they are unhappy with the state of motor vehicles well-being in Malaysia?

With all the protectionism mentality shown by our government, I really do not blame them. No wonder most of them chose to invest in Thailand, Indonesia and China. I for one, is very disappointed with their absence in KLIMS’10. Actually it’s not much of a car show without those heavy weight players. I hope they will take part in future motor shows or maybe they should organize one just for the European marques. Otherwise I will have to attend the next Thailand Motor Show. I heard this year their motor show was fabulous. Sigh!

Michael Schumacher blazed Kuala Lumpur City Center with impressive F1 Street Demo

Michael Schumacher, the 7-time Formula 1 World Champion, although out of action for 3 years, is still the crowd favorite in the Petronas Formula One Street Demo. He is seen here exiting the pit for the start of the eagerly anticipated street demo.

In conjunction with the coming 2010 Formula One PETRONAS Malaysian Grand Prix, PETRONAS has lined up a series of “Pit Pulse” activities to hype up the promo. Centred at Jalan Binjai in KLCC, the PETRONAS Pit Pulse event will host a bunch of activities including promotion, merchandising booths and exhibits, go-kart and F1 simulator challenge as well as live performances by Malaysia’s top artistes. For more information go to their website: http://www.petmos.com.my

However the main highlight and THE must-see event of the week was definitely the Formula One Street Demo. This is the first time Petronas is staging the F1 demo on the street of Kuala Lumpur. No details were too small or overlooked in planning and staging this FREE public event. Even a fully functional pit stop was constructed at the Pit Pulse for the viewing pleasure of the public. And when the weather was not cooperative, free rain ponchos were distributed to the public. What else could you ask for? A free message maybe…..

Lotus F1 Racing car unveiled in Kuala Lumpur

The actual Lotus F1 racing machine was unveiled yesterday at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur's main concourse area yesterday.

Kuala Lumpur, 30 March 2010. Kicking off the F1 season in Sepang Malaysia, Lotus Racing held a homecoming celebration at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur where all three drivers – Jarno Trulli, Heikki Kovalainen and Fairuz Fauzy – unveiled the stunning green-and-yellow Lotus Cosworth T127 for the first time to their adoring Malaysian fans. I find the team colors a little bit garish for a race car. That’s just me. But who am I to complain if they can do the job they were designed to do – to win races! So far they have been doing quite a good job. The recent 13th placing by Heikki Kovalainen at the just concluded Melbourne Grand Prix augured well for this brand-new outfit. Hopefully the team could bring more racing honor to the country and market the Malaysian brand far and wide.
