Happy Birthday to me!!

Aston Martin DB7 as my birthday present! ........I wish! Well, a girl can dream can't she?

We had a couple of gift vouchers to be used at Drivers Dreamdays. These guys are the organisers of a fun day at the race track where you can test drive the supercar of your choice. And so I chose the super-sleek and uber-sexy Aston while KL pitted his strength against the wild and bucking-bull of a Lamborghini.

After a few laps with a qualified race intructor, we were let loose on the track. Nothing, believe you me, nothing prepared me for the exhiliration as I eased down on the pedals and heard the engine revving up! The scenery simply flew past me in a flash and the din from the engine somehow tranformed into a soothing symphony of power. These cars were certainly made for the race course as we thrashed it around corners at high speed and slammed down the accelarators on the straight stretches. I mean, what else can you say when you are hitting 0 to 100km/h in less than 5 seconds?? Well, KL said he "peed a little".

All in all, a wonderful day out as we watched other dream-drivers have their go at other supercars (Ferrari, Porsche etc).

Catch me with if you can!
