Hari Raya Wishes From Me and PROTON Design

Hari Raya Wishes From Me and PROTON Design

We’re now at the last weekend of Ramadhan, about 4 days away from the biggest celebration in the Muslim calendar. Indeed the festive spirit is being felt and the usual signs evident all around. This year I’m opting out from the journey balik kampung and staying in the city to celebrate low key in a classic metropolitan style. Every year on the first afternoon of Raya I would usually pay a visit to one of the malls nearby. I would be in full Raya garb so you can imagine the looks I get from the crowd. They must be very confused. Why is this Chinese bloke wearing full baju Melayu gear on the first day of Aidilfitri?! Hehe.

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all readers of this blog, friends, family and business associates a great Eid Mubaraq. Enjoy your long weekend with visits to open houses, rekindling relationships, enjoying the food and for the kids, your duit raya!

I will leave you with a short video done by PROTON Design, a yearly thing we do to welcome Syawal. Take care, be safe and be happy!

KLIMS 2010

The Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show is now on at Putra World Trade Centre and will end on 12th December. Have you visited? Try to avoid the peak times because it can be so crowded that you won’t be able to move let alone take pictures to fully appreciate the exhibits.

PROTON Design is out in full force this time round, showcasing not one but five designs, specifically 2 concepts and 3 show cars. Dubbed the Pahlawan Series it is a testament of our abilities to develop practical and emotive designs which illustrate our vision of the immediate future.

Do visit the PROTON booth and be part of our Styling Digital LIVE Studio. I’ll be there on and off so give me a holler should you see me!

PROTON’s 25th Anniversary Website

As PROTON officially kicked off its 25th Anniversary celebrations recently with a Gala Dinner, some other events also followed suit. There was the launch of the Limited Edition ‘tiger inspired’ Exora, Persona and Saga. Last week was the refreshed Exora with a new interior colour scheme and exciting Plum Red exterior colour. Today, the official 25th Anniversary website went LIVE and it certainly looks like a happening place to share your stories, participate in contests and read about what’s new relating to the celebration. Click HERE to access the site and be a part of Malaysian automotive history! (and see if you can find my story in there somewhere!)
