Borneo Auto Show & Gathering Festival 2016 in Miri

Borneo Auto Show & Gathering Festival 2016 happened on the 1st and 2nd of October this year at Boulevard Hypermarket’s car park, Miri. For those who wonder where Boulevard Hypermarket in Miri is, the address is: Lot 2528, Jalan Boulevard Utama, Boulevard Commercial Center, 98000 Miri, Sarawak. This auto show was organized by Miri Auto Event.

I dropped by at the festival on the second day (2nd October 2016) to snap some pictures to share with you all. My spouse and his friends, who are members of the unofficial JDM (East Malaysia) group, were also there displaying their vehicles. Members of the group also include car lovers from Brunei.

Our wonderful friends from Brunei also shown their support for the auto show.

It was the first time my spouse and his friends joined an auto show. They had been quietly appreciating the cars on display in previous years’ auto shows.

The guys had breakfast at Motown Motor Coffee before going to the auto show.

It was a scorching day. My face and arms are still tanned from being kissed by the 2nd October sun rays. Thus, my color is two-toned now. Macam two-toned chocolate mousse!

when-i-grow-up-i-wanna-drive-a-sporty-car

When I was young, I did not collect pictures of Disney princesses. Instead, I cut out and collected pictures of sports cars from newspapers and magazines. lol

I just wished that the allocated venue would be more spacious. It’s a pity we do not have a gigantic and comfortable indoor exhibit space here. Many people ‘hid’ under the tents while others seek shelter under some trees. I escaped to Boulevard Hypermarket to do some shopping and enjoyed the air-conditioning.

Raise your hands if you are Nissan fan. :-) I noticed there were more Nissan sports cars in this auto show compared to previous years’ auto shows (in Miri).

Which one would you rather go to – a beauty pageant or a car show?

The unofficial JDM (East Malaysia) group members appeared on the second day of the event, as many of its members were unavailable on the 1st day.

skyline-r34-gtt-and-mazda-rx7

Nissan Skyline GTT R34 and Mazda RX-7. Nak dengar pantun merapu I lagi? :D “Nissan dan Mazda turun ke pasar, punggung siapa lebih besar?”

Ceramic Pro – J Auto Works (Miri) was one of the sponsors for this event. The cars displayed under their tents are not associated with the group that my spouse is part of. Though, I must add that some members of the unofficial JDM (East Malaysia) group happened to be customers of Ceramic Pro Miri too. That bright Pikachu yellow on the Skyline R34  (seen on above picture) is not paint but vinyl wrap, wrapped by Ceramic Pro – J Auto Works (Miri).

I took a brief tour and snapped several pictures. I might have missed some spots, so if you happened to be participating in the event but could not find picture of your vehicle inside this post, I sincerely apologize. It does not mean that your vehicle didn’t catch my eye; I’m the type who sees beauty in everything and wants to capture everything on my camera, alas, I was in a rush to handle some matters later that day.
