Sekali lagi bertempat di Yahoo Dome, Fukuoka *tempat yang sama yang I jumpa org2 jepun gila anime tu*; telah berlansungnya Fukuoka Custom Car Show 2011 pada 19-20 Feb 2011 from 9 a.m - 5 p.m. Kat bawah ni I quote info pasal Custom Car Show ni yang di war-warkan untuk promosi.
February 19 (Sat)-20 (Sun)
First held in 2010 by a group of amateur custom-car enthusiasts, this event attracted 22,000 visitors. Now back for a second year, around 400 tuned-up, modified and customized cars and bikes will be on display at Yahoo! Japan Dome. Aspiring customize-rs should check out the custom shop display booths and parts shops too.
Untuk kali ni, I tak perlu bersusah payah memujuk hubby untuk bawak I ke event tu, sebab hubby sendiri yang terlebih excited yang nak pergi event tu berbanding I. Walaupun kena bayar 1000yen (~RM37) untuk admission, hubby tetap bersemangat nak pergi event tu. Luckily we get to park our car at the nearest car park; thus we don't have to walk so far to reach the event hall.
My little prince is not being so co-operative on that day as he has just wake up from his baby sleep. Thus, he demanded untuk di dukung the whole time. Aiyarrrkkk, dah la tu nak berdukung dengan mommy je..dengan daddy kejap2 je;lepas tu nak mommy je dukung. Tak pasal2 naik muscle habis tangan mommy, terus jadi Yatie Gagah dan bukan lagi Yatie Chomeyl
Amongst the many VIP styled and Kei cars there were quite a number of local Kyushu and Fukuoka based workshops and tuners in attendance. I don't really get the idea of how joyful it will feel for the owner to spend really big and huge amount of money to modified their cars, but I guess it's the same feeling when I get to buy new handbags + shoes + accessories to wear along with the clothes ~ maybe.
As for me, I just take lots of pictures with the car and doesn't really bothered about what type of modification has been going on; on that particular car. The cars were arranged based on it's type such as VIP-car, K-car, truck, MPVs, sports car, race car and motorcycle.
URAS had the largest stand in the hall, greeting attendees at the entrance. All of the well known URAS cars were there, including 4 Door R34 Skylines and the Tokyo Auto Salon winning Wagon R.
At first, both hubby & I feels like the motorcycles displayed there were far more interesting than those modified cars. We spotted a c50 that have been totally modified into a stunning green bike that it is hard to recognize it's initial shape.
+- kalau dapat bawak ni, bestnyaaaaaaaaaaaa -+
+- motor Honda C50 yang sungguh hensem, rasa macam nak beli bawak balik bagi kat abah -+
Another interesting motorcycle that caught my attention on that day is a bike named "BLOG100". Selaku blogger, jadi terlebih excited lah bila tengok ada perkataan BLOG tertera pada body scooter itu. Terus tergedik2 posing dengan motor BLOG yang ada penutup kepala-tak basah masa hujan-sesuai di applied untuk motor2 di Malaysia. Dah la tu, design untuk stand tu sama dengan design jacket yang I pakai hari tu ~ memang sehati sejiwa seblog setegar lah eheh.

There was also a dance competition running on that place and we were able to see one performance from a group of young dancers. Superb movement and great choreography; sampai I pun tergedik2 goyang badan sekali masa tengok diorang menari.

As usual, dekat auto show biasanya memang ada gadis seksi yang posing kat tepi kereta; pastu pengunjung2 sibuk2 ambik gambar gadis seksi tu bukan nnya tengok kat kereta ~ what the heck. I ada jugak offer hubby untuk posing dengan gadis2 tu, tapi dia tak nak. Hubby cakap tak cantik eheh; dalam hati berbunga2 seronok lah sebab hubby tak mengedik nak posing dengan diorang. End up hubby posing dengan Goku je, dan I lah yang sibuk2 posing tepi gadis2 seksi itu ngeeee.
+- gadis2 seksi dan mak budak yang tak berapa seksi serta bapak budak dengan Goku yang tak seksi jugak -+
Among the cars displayed on that day, my favorites goes to two pink cars. Gosh, the color of the car is lusciously beautiful. Inside the car, there were also some miniature handbag hanging near the mirror; and it's cushion is also covered with pink leather. My oh my, I was awestruck the moment when I saw it; that it took me few minutes to pick up my jaw that felt drop on the floor .
+- perhatikan muka Nazhan yang tak redha dan memberontak bila mommy paksa ambik gambar dengan kereta Hello Kitty -+
+- super-excited tengok Honda Odyssey warna pink luar & dalam sampai tak peduli kat kamera dah. Jalan laju2 ke arah kereta nak belek puas2 -+
While hubby favors the cars with outstanding tire/sport-rims and the most ear-banging sound; installed with big speakers inside the boot as well as equipped with several screens to watch a music video. I cant stand the loud sound as it made me feels dizzy. You can even see that the speaker is 'jumping' few inches from it's casing as the consequences of the loud music played inside the car. Pekak telinga makcik yang dah kertu nih.
+- sport rim yang seksi2....gerammmm tengok -+
+- aksesori untuk mempercepatkan proses pemekakan kepada telinga -+
Overall, it was not that exciting to attend this event as I expected it to be. We might have to go to Tokyo Auto Show to feels the excitement as we wish to have. Hopefully, ada rezeki bolehlah nak tengok Tokyo Auto Show nanti, Insya Allah.
