BugFest 2010, Johor Bahru!!!

in search of the bug's life story had brought me down to Johor Bahru. also, embarked my first visit to Johor Bahru! cy & i took the midnight train, we had the deck coach. super comfy!
we couldn't sleep for the night, then we take a stroll from front deck till the end! cool!
after 8 hours of goodnight sleep, we got to Johor Bahru! and cy's friend, Tham & Kenneth already pondering upon our arrival at the station, with his bug with Bra.
see what i mean? bug with Bra.
Kenneth is from Hong Kong. Yes! this bugger flew all the way from HK for this event! Bugfest 2010! and he has 3 bugs and 1 super fine Karmann Ghia in HK!
0830. we got to Sutera Mall, where Bugfest held. wasn't that much bugs yet.
and a Karmann Ghia...
and a few bug van...
by 1000. bugs are flying in. flocking the Bugfest! let the feast begins!!!
now. here's one particular bug i need to say something. this bug is a masterpiece. detailed. rare accessories.
even the bug master kenneth, agape. tham was drooling and cy's pants dropped.

and all of sudden, after lunch hour, downpour like no one else's business.
we were trapped at the Sutera Mall which doesn't has a Cinema! from Right. Kenneth, me, cy, Ming
and we were trapped in the mall playing chinese chess and lost to this little 7 y.o. prodigy!
thank god the rain stopped after an hour, all bugs are soaking well, all wax are effortless. how sad.
that's me and Tham's bug with bra...
Party crusher! stupid Johore's Kenari! fugly to the max! get lost!
the boy and his chum.
Khoo and his Samba!
VW is so bored.
a fine lad came all the way from Penang, it took him 11 hours drive... madness! and another lads with his son, drove 18 hours from Kelantan!
it was so hot and humid... so many people and bugs... so hungry and so smelly...

we brought Kenneth to one of the local finest cuisine...Secret Recipe... we wanted to try the bugger restaurant, but it's a steamboat! too heavy for hi tea boy!
cy and i with the bug with bra...
met new friend...BK, that's his wife and cute little boys at the back. not his back! at my back!
night falls fast. it's around 2000 already, and we'd been here for almost 12 hours! without bathe! owh me lord!
and finally! the result released at 2130! the best bug's engine goes to! Stephen the king! one of my newly met friend =) his wife and his mechanic
everything sums up at 2200. we were exhausted and smelly, and hasn't have our dinner yet... tham brought us to Chinese cuisine...
after a good night sleep, we went back for the vintage car and motor show! from Left, BK, Gary, Tham, Cy, Kenneth and me!
and here's come the vintage machines!
