From Cjay to Karyas

Karyas is a 93 model Daihatsu Charade. By the way just a trivia, Daihatsu is now fully owned by Toyota

After our car accident last May 2018 with my wife Raq kay Cjay (my Liteace van) akala ko hindi na ako ulit magda-drive.

Thank God there’s no serious injuries on both of us.

Then comes December, when I got hold of my new wheels, (actually its an old car hehe) and named him Karyas because of the sticker left behind by its previous owner.

Karyas is a 93 model Daihatsu Charade. By the way just a trivia, Daihatsu is now fully owned by Toyota 😀 Karyas is just a bit wonky ng mabili ko, the usual of course sa mga lumang auto, pero running naman, but still need a couple of tuning and makeover sa body at mechanical parts, overall I’m satisfied naman, and hopefully magsama kami ng matagal at matiwasay hehe.

Easter Sunday Bonding at San Mateo Rizal

A bright Sunday morning! 

What a nice day to go on a road trip, family bonding and some spiritual moments; and yes, that’s what we did!

Armed with a downloaded Google Map, we took off around 9am from our place in Novaliches. Our target location is the miraculous shrine of Our Lady Mary Mediatrix of All Grace Chapel, which is set on top of a hill in San Mateo, Rizal.

We got lost for awhile around Parang, Marikina but manage to get back on tracks after maneuvering two or three times, that’s when we saw the Virgin Mary statue from afar, I know were getting near but upon seeing how high the place is, I started to doubt my 23 year old Cjay (van) could ascend gloriously on the almost 45 degree uphill road all the way to the chapel.

Kudos to my Mang Boy (my mechanic) for the tuning-up my van a week earlier, Cjay traverse it quite easily up to the top, I’m stoked! Akala ko talaga papababain ko mga pasahero ko eh hehe! It was very rewarding when we reached the chapel at around 11am (19 kms kasama na yung ligaw dun hehe), the whole place is serene and holy, we can see clearly the Makati skylines and nearby cities plus we’re all astonished of the beautifully crafted bronze head of the Virgin Mary. We all spend time praying, candle offering and of course some photo ops for souvenirs.

Afterwards we go for a refreshing swim at Villa Diaz also in San Mateo. I forgot to took photos there because I’m always at the pool 😛

 

MFest at Clark International Speedway

Any one can drive a fast car, few can drive a car fast.

Nasty but true! That’s the tag line used at the MFEST Philippines event held last Saturday April 12, 2014 at Clark International Speedway in Angeles, Pampanga.

 

How I’d wish I’m one of the participants, I bet I can nail 7 secs at the drag race haha! (in my dreams) Well, not bad, as I preferred to be one of those stoked spectators who spend the day watching drag race after drag race after drag race (every 5 minutes, whew!), by the way, there’s also some drifting happening adjacent to the drag strip, and anybody can view the whole action from the 3rd floor of the CIS building.

 

The first 8 sec. in the Philippines – Nissan GTR

The distinct scent of burned rubber and roaring engines dominates the whole place, plus the cool cars (BMW, Porsche, Corvette, Hot Rods, muscle cars, etc..) and of course cute babes coming from all directions! I then found myself literally having selfiesta all over the place haha!

and of course, save the best for lust este last pala 😆
