If you were a taxi driver in KL, and you wanted to make your taxi stand out — y’know, to attract business — what would you do? I’d probably give the car a good scrub, and use some nice air freshener. in fact, I’d go out of my way to get a unique air freshener so my customers would have fond memories of riding in my cab. Well, that’s not the approach this taxi driver took. Instead of a clean and unique smelling car, this taxi driver thought it’d be best to superglue more than 750 toy cars to his… car.
Last Thursday and Friday I accompanied Kelly on a business trip to Singapore. I’d never been before so it was an opportune time to go (with company-paid accommodation) but also because three of my former clients were now working in Singapore, and I managed to organise a lunch for us all while there. I spent my time taking wandering around and taking photographs at various locations along or near Orchard Road, but a particularly cool location I stumbled across was the Mint Toy Museum.
While exploring Bukit Bintang last night, Kelly, McGauz, and I went into a toy shop to look for a gift for Kelly’s niece Alannah. There was nothing of too much interest, except of course, the 1:32 scale model of the legendary Malaysian-made Perodua Myvi! And it came in the same colour as our actual Myvi! And at RM49.95, it was almost the same price :P This morning I had a close look at the miniature car and was astounded at the attention to detail it has.
