Switzerland - The Rides Part II

So here are some shots of the bikes I saw in Zurich.

Not sure what bike is this, but it looks damn nice

My personal favourite, the VRSC V-Rod from Harley Davidson

Switzerland - The Rides Part I

Back to work today. Monday always sucks. Liverpool beat Blackburn 1-0 last night, yay!

Got lots of things to update, don't know where to begin. Probably start with the cars and bikes I saw in Switzerland. By the way, I saw more Audi cars than Benz in Switzerland, hmm.. I wonder why?

Anyway, here are some of the shots I got from Zurich.

The 3.2-liter V6 Chrysler Crossfire and the 5.3-liter V12 Jaguar E-Type

The 3.2-liter V6
Alfa GT

The 6.0-liter V12
Bentley Continental GT

Awesome machine with twin turbochargers that delivers 552 bhp

Not only it capable of reaching 100 kmph in 4.8 seconds, but it also has centrally mounted analogue clock by Breitling, cool huh?

We were preparing to leave Zurich and then I saw a glimpse of this:

The 6.0-liter V12 Aston Martin DB9

I thought I won't be able to see another DB9 upclose again, until we were on the way to have Thai food for dinner in Luzern..

The individually hand-built beauty DB9, parked by the road side

Even the famous Vanquish was built from DB9 prototype

Somehow it makes you feel like.. Bond, James Bond

Stay tuned for Part II - the bikes.

Flying back to KL tomorrow

So I'm almost done here in Switzerland. Today will be my last day in Luzern office, and I'll be flying back with Mae tomorrow noon. It's 1:30pm here at the moment (7:30pm in MY), and I've attended a few meetings/discussions. It will get even busier for me, as we still need to shop for some chocolates as souvenirs, and the most annoying thing: start packing! Hope my luggage fits.. finger crossed :P

In the meantime, some photos before I resume blogging next week.

Taken at Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich, where all the big shops are located

The Swiss Alps as seen from Luzern

Later folks. Happy Easter and have a wonderful weekend. Ciao!

Snowing in April Spring

Finally I'm able to update my blog. For the past 10 days I didn't have any chance to read or update blogs. Probably it's a good thing coz I was able to spend more time with Mae here in Switzerland.

Was in Bern last Wednesday for some meetings/presentations. The weather was really unbelievable. In the morning, it was OK, then it started to rain around 8:30am, then it snowed at 10am, then it rained again during lunch time.

The rain stopped at 1pm, and then the snow came at 2pm, and from then on none stop snowing until the entire landscape became all white. Truly amazing considering the Swiss was still enjoying 20+ degrees only the week before.

They say nowdays you'd experience all 4 seasons in April. I totally agree now. Awesome.
