F1 Sepang and Brazil here i COme~

Okay you know, i had the BEST time EVER in Sepang Malaysia. The REdbull people who sent us up were amazing and i have to thank them SOooooo much for this opportunity. The F1 itself was a brilliant experience that I wouldn't give up . The sound of the engines starting up at the grids is overwhelming and it sets your heart pumping as the adrenaline rises to a height I never felt before.

I can't believe i went and it happens to be out of the 10 Formula Una girls, I was chosen to be the lucky Female to go up to BRAZIL... for the F1 races there for about a week in October. Oh man.............the thought is just sending me nuts already.

Shit, looks like i have the travel Bug.....ahhaha I've unintentionally travelled all over this year and i still have 3 countries to go to this year, perth in 2 days, Brazil in October and Miami to see my cousin Mai end of year!ARHGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG I was psyched about being sent up to Sepang to watch the F1 and didn't go there to shop like some (okay i'm mean) so this has been the biggest bonus so far by winning the Malaysian F1 formula Una.Okay i'll stop gushing....this was how my weekend went...*takes a HUGE Deep breath*

Thursday 5th April ~~~~
I hadn't finished packin til like 5am, didn't sleep much, like 2half hours.Had to be at coach destination at 8.30am where we went up to Malacca first for lunch then we reached our Apartment Suites at the Pacific Regency in KL. I shared my room with a girl called Angeline, and it was really spacious with a massive bathroom, what every woman loves. We hit it off really well.
That night we had a welcome dinner in the hotel's 23rd floor restaurant and then a party up on the 33rd floor where it was a pool and bar area that was open-aired and Petronas towers was shining bright in the distance.Ended up there till the end like 2amplus and i got backed, showered and slept like 3.30am.

Friday 6th April
Struggled to wake up at 7am, and get ready for breakfast and still look good. HEaded upto Genting to try the Sky enture which is a huge Airtunnel which blasts winds of 193km/h so you can have the feel of Terminal Velocity, much like Skydiving. We were suited up and each got 2 trys. It was such a blast *how cliche* and I swear they could have dumped me there for 2 weeks.

Had lunch and there was a free and easy for 'shopping' would you bloody believe it! AHAHh shopping in genting?? I went around with another chick Alex and we took stupid photos that ended up appearing in the Redbull bulletin. We were all given cameras to take pictures, the winner was angeline in the end! Anyway, after all that we head back to the hotel to refresh, have dinner and then drinks at some tapas bar and the to Maison, where everyone had a WILD timepartying.

SO much redbull, Vodka, lychees, oh it was crazy partying with the girls, the redbull management, people from Singapore...oh the list goes on. This was teh most fun night that EvERYone let lose and went Loko!!!!haven't dont that in a Long WHile..i guess What happens in KL stays in KL for some..heheheh!!!Both nights most girls left early, and usually only me, Alex and Esther were left to party on, the true party addicts , ahahah .What was messed up is at 3 when we left, the cab driver sent us somewhere else, and our hotel was only 5mins round the bend. Ended up half an hour stuck thru a dodgy lane, where we locked our doors out of fear.Arghhhhhh, well we got back grumpy tired and another mornin to wake up early too.

Saturday 7th April~~~~
This was a VERY importnat day and I had a special outfit fit for this day that i had bought to look good. I wasn't relalyhung over, i'm surprised, but i was up at 7am though i slept at 4am!!!
I woke up extra early to have breakfast at 7.30 am, so i could come back up and get ready doing my hair and makeup and dress and shit. Was a long task to look good, but well it was all really worth it. It was the day at the Sepang Circuit and it was BLisTering HOt. We walked in and you could see like 40-50 photographers at the entrance to the paddocks gates and tehy clicked away like mad yellign to turn to them and all. We were all briefed and again at 11am we had Champagne brought to us once again. Was mad, guess the europe detox was made up in these 4days!

We finally got to see the cars in the paddocks and we had some other shoots on location and interviews. We watched the qualifying races and head off back to the hotel where we had to redress in half an hour and change then went out for dinner at Shangri-la hotel with the redbull guys and drivers from torro rosso. We then headed to ZOuk where the red bull party was. Sorry but ZOUK KL is SHIT.
What a disappointment. I thought it looked completely cheap looking. VIP was crap too. Was black paint and some old lookng furniture.Man, if not for the company and alcohol i would h ave left early. But h well i gt COMpletely TRASHED, but I think cuz i had 9 hours sleep in 3 days and my body just crashed.

SUNDAY 8th April~~~~
I wore jeans and a white top and my favourite white cowboy hat that i Never have an occasion to wear to.Was bloody hot and once aain was champ[agne early in the morning for the welcome and teh time came and i was announced as the winner to head Brazil. I guess well i could have been somewhat alot more enthusiastic but i couldn't even muster a big fat fake smile. I felt almost bad for winning and then i thought well... looks like noone else is gonna talk to me the rest of this trip. Anyway this was an added bonus to the F1 Sepan Trip. The races were crazy when they started. The sound of tall the engines when started was hypnotic and powerful. Well my friends all know im an adrenaline junkie, so this relaly kick started my motor. In the end my favourite Alonso won crippling Raikkonen, and the young blood Hamilton took a surprsing second for me. I can't explain all i felt just being there and i dont wanna babble any further, just go if youhave the chance next time!!!!!Well we had a super long coach ride back...argh i was a grumpie mess, hehehe, anyhow this is way too long so i will leave you with the photos!!!!!
