The journey started with me & Suresh heading down to Nilai to meet up with the rest. Since we had 2 CRZ's to drive, we zoomed down and we managed to reach Nilai in really good time :) The torque in the CRZ i was driving was amazing and the power...Oh Bliss! As we arrived at Nilai, we waited for about an hour for the rest to come *grumble grumble* but oh well, we just chilled out and took some pictures of the lovely cars!
If you want to get a chance to use a hybrid, head over to http://bit.ly/IQcsrI and you can rent a Honda Hybrid for 3 days 2 nights to test it all out for yourself!
The drive down
The 2 sexy ladies
As the rest came, we cruised all the way down to Tebrau, Johor where the event was happening. Honda had a whole carnival set up for anyone to come in and enjoy its activities. Honda went to a great extent to educate the public about hybrid technology and how it saves your pocket & also the environment.
We went into the main showcase area to see what its all about!
Myself, Ashley, Sydney, Cynthia, Jillian & Suresh
A concert will be held at night!

As we entered the main tent, it started up with an educational tour of what Hybrid is all about. Discovering what Hybrids are all about and also how it started with Honda
The Discovery Area
There was an activity with a 2 seater bicycle which allowed the guest to learn more about how the Hybrid works as it eases the fuel consumption with an electric motor.
Other than that, in the discovery area, there was a simple game which children could play with to control the car using just the pedals. The main objective of this game was to go the distance with the Honda Hybrid Simulators
After the discovery section, we headed off to the Inspire section. There was a movie theater which one of Jinnyboy's videos about the Honda Hybrid was playing. We were also able to create our own virtual Hybrid Car through an interactive touch screen game. Pretty cool!
The last section of the main canopy was the Ignite Section. where we were able to see the cars for itself in all its glory. Guests were able to check out the cars, the specifications, its designs and get all the info they need from the Honda promoters there. I would say all 3 areas gave lots of information and also it was a fun experience!
The Emcees giving out Honda Merchandises
Interactive iPads to tell us the specifications and makes of the cars
Informational boards about the Honda Hybrid Family
The Honda Insight
The Honda Jazz
Just like our 2 CRZ's
The Hybrid Cars are fitted with Integrated Motor Assist (IMA)
Heading outside, everyone was able to test drive the Honda Hybrids as there are plenty of demo cars out there to test drive! I would be pretty much happy to know, yeah there is a car waiting for me to be driven and I wouldn't need to wait long queues. More than that, anybody who test drives the Honda Hybrids will be able to get a free T shirt! woohoo
With the Honda Insights out there
Since we're all the way in Johor, there was one thing in mind which was to eat awesome food! Since Suresh & Cynthia were from Johor, they brought us around to eat some yummylicious food
Our first food destination was Restaurant 3327 with its famous claypot curry noodles & claypot chicken rice
Claypot Chicken Rice
Claypot Curry Noodles
Claypot Loh Shu Fan
We returned to the Honda Event area in the evening to catch a glimpse of the concert. The turnout was quite good as the local crowd came in to enjoy performances by some of the bands and artists performing that night.
There was also free popcorn & cotton candy. Time to get fat and happy =D
some activities going on stage

Continuing our food hunting, we decided to go for a steamboat Buffet. it only costed RM20! omg it so cheap I can die. we ate to our hearts content and took some awesome shots of the cars at night!
Our night shots:
I wanted to upload some of these photos at night, using the Mobilelink app on my Samsung Galaxy S4, I managed to transfer photos from my Camera to my phone! Of all things, camera photos still portray one of the best qualities there is in photography, and to do live updates with it is even more awesome as I can show really great photos!
Samsung's Mobilelink which allows me to transfer photos!
As morning came, we headed for our last food destination which was "The Toast". They serve good Mee Siam and of course all great Malaysian Favourites! The prices were really reasonable as well so we ate till our hearts content!
Mee Siam with Otak-otak
Kaya Butter Toast with soft boiled eggs

Our crazy table
As for our last destination before we headed back, we headed over to some old Heritage buildings to get some last pictures of our cars
I wanna thank Donovan & Honda for allowing me to be part of this journey! I also want to thank Suresh & Cynthia for bringing us around the awesome places. It is so hard to go back to my old car once I've driven the CRZ, dang!
