I didn’t know what the hell was happening throughout the race. Car comes = people cheer, another car comes = people cheers, no car = no cheers.
There weren’t any huge screens to guide us or inform us on what is happening throughout the race. So there we were, baking under the hot sun while being irritated by insects that crawl up our feet. The enthusiasms of the people were gone by the 20th lap. Before that, everyone was screaming and cheering as the race starts.
Formula 1 was great. Well worth the experience! Thank you Steph and Nik! 😀
Well, parking was a pain in the ass. The roadside was filled with cars and the nearest empty spot was miles away from the stadium. However, I found a parking deep inside a plantation. It was filled with bushes and grass. It’s somehow illegal but we had to pay RM10 to park our car there. I had to bang into some bushes and tall grass in order to park my car.
But it was worth it as it was near Sepang track.
Steph and Nik gave me 2 Hill Top tickets. I was hoping for a grand stand ticket actually haha.
Abby Lu, PS, Kiang, Hen and I sat on a grassy hill top over looking 2 corners of the track. The grand stand was far away hence we couldn’t see the start up. As the first lap goes on, everyone stood up to cheer. The piercing sound of the engine wasn’t as loud as I expected. Thank god I didn’t waste my 5 bucks to get earplug from a vendor outside the stadium. Speaking about vendor, the place was swarmed with hawkers selling drinks and food.
Our corner was well fortunate to see an engine blow up. The car was blowing smoke and the driver had to be sent back with a kapcai (low grade motorcycle).
We didn’t stay for the prize giving ceremony cause we couldn’t see a thing. Everyone was rushing out by then. Cars were stuck for hours trying to get out from the parking. I, on the other hand, left the place smoothly. Thanks to our illegal parking operator.
ATTN: My pictures looks a little bit grainy. I’ve no idea why. Further, the scanning process made it even worst..fuck..
