Emirates Singapore Derby 2016 Roadshow

The Emirates Singapore Derby 2016 is taking place on 10th July 2016, a classic run on Singapore racing calendar. In celebration of the Emirates Singapore Derby, roadshows were organised over two weekends giving the public to visit and know more about history of racing in Singapore, getting up close and personal with a horse, allowing you to pat and feed them (at certain allocated timing).

I went for the Emirates Singapore Derby roadshow on 25th June 2016 at Capital Piazza, Outdoor Plaza. There were a few interesting activities that took place during Emirates Singapore Derby Roadshow that visitors to the roadshow can take part in such as the horse pitching competition as well as horse feeding and patting. Besides that, I also learn and know more about the history of the Emirates Singapore Derby from the information boards! One of the highlights from the event for me was the horse patting and feeding session! Check out some of the photographs that I took during the roadshow last Saturday!

Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015

My first hand experiences attending a horse racing carnival started when I was studying in Australia. Initially, I didn’t know much about horse racing as a sports and cultural festival event. During my 4 years of stay in Australia, learning and assimilating into the local culture, I started to know and learn about Melbourne Cup, its roots, festivities, sports and horse racing. This is a huge horse racing carnival and this is a race, the race that stops a nation. That was my maiden entry into experiencing a horse racing carnival.

Upon returning to Singapore, I didn’t go back into attending horse racing events. I was busy building up my business career, business networking, social media networking and also my photography portfolio. Singapore has major horse racing carnivals and they were regularly featured in the papers. In the year 2015, I stepped back into the horse racing carnival and festivities again, with the Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015. I was invited by Singapore Turf Club to the prestigious horse racing event and it felt like my good old undergraduate days in Australia, suited up smartly for the Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015.

The Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015, a prestigious Group 1 racing event on the Singapore racing calendar. It was a fun and interesting time at a glamorous sporting event in Singapore, feeling good to be part of the Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015 racing event. I took the Longines signature cocktail, the Longines Blue, to the viewing deck and prepare to watch the supporting racing action.

Longines is the sponsor for Singapore Gold Cup and we had an opportunity to view the beautiful Longines watches on display at the lounge. The exquisitive range of Longines watches, a well known luxury watch brand globally. They are the perfect time pieces and time keepers for the people who love watches and for those who love sporting events. A perfect combination and partnership for Longines and the Singapore Gold Cup.

The beauty and elegance of the Longines watches, represented by world famous celebrities. It’s not just an attitude, it’s also an aura of pride and confidence.

Watching a sports event live and up close, it is spectacular and exciting, to see, to feel and to enjoy the racing adrenaline, with supporters cheering them on from the sidelines.

At 5:55pm, the main race, the Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015 begun with high speed racing action, cheered on by the crowds as they raced towards the finishing line.

It was a close race, a fight to the finishing line, to determine who is the champion for Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015. Although there can only be one winner, the rest of the racers behind the pack made it a memorable sporting racing spectacle to watch and enjoy for all.

As the sun sets over the horizon, marking the end of the Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015. This was a fun time for me at the races, it’s great to be back again enjoying the festivities and fun of a racing carnival.

Fast & Furious Drifting Action @ Texas Revolution Carnival ~ 9th June 2007

I am a sports car fanatic. I can’t call myself a great expert in all racing cars, parts, modifications, clubs, racing circuits, drifting techniques etc etc ….. Nevertheless, if you wish to chit chat until the sun comes down on racing and sports cars and related stuff, do feel free to drop me an email.

I am a huge fan of Initial D (Anime dramas and movie) and basically anything to do with sports car racing, Formula 1 , GT Races. My favourite sports cars are Nissan Skyline GT-R, Nissan 180SX and Subaru WRX and I have great respect for sports cars such as Honda NSX, Mazda RX-7, Toyota Supra, Honda Civic EG6, Mitsubishi Evolution 6.

During the Texas Revolution Carnival, I was entertained by some great performances of drifting and high octane racing by different sports cars and there were a significant proportion of S14 and S15, driven by professional drifters from Malaysia and Singapore.

Presenting to all ……. some photographs from that Saturday’s hot burning actions,

(1) Police and Thief Story

(2) Drifting

Time to be a drifter ? Hmm ….. Keep a lookout ……
