We got a little less than two hours sleep before we setting off for the next leg of our rally. We did manage to catch a lovely sunrise at our cove. Sigh, such a nice luxury catamaran we were on but so little time. Here are a few shots to make you drool.
Our first stop for Sunday was East Coast Park. After some McD's for breakfast so we started our meet the people session (we WERE in white). The response at East Coast was great. People came up to chat with us, ask us about our drive so far, and to check out the Polo. I signed an autograph for Angus, a young fan, and we took a photograph with his family.
Ryan was most eloquent and helpful with folks who wanted to know about the car. I swear he can be a car salesman. I think his liking the car himself helped him to articulate what was neat about our Polo.
We made our way to Katong Village next, where we had lunch in Katong (delightful Marmite chicken and char siew there), then we were off to Bishan Park to give out goodie bags to joggers and folks walking their dogs. We made a stop at AMK Central too and could not resist queuing for the Bubble tea at Koi Cafe, near AMK Hub.
I think I got a little too ambitious with my order and asked for a large for Ryan and me. I ended up with enough pearls in my large Bubble Plum Green Tea to be a meal. Ryan had a large Bubble Milk Tea and also had trouble finishing it.
Benjamin Heng, Carolina and the rest of our rally team very quickly gave out our goodie bags to the shoppers at AMK Central.
With that done, we headed back the Volkswagen centre, our final checkpoint. It was a zoo there, with people waiting to test drive the Polo. Even our rally car was quickly pressed into service to help with the test drives.
I wanted to have some ice cream or three at the showroom but my brain was too tired to even think of asking for a scoop. And also, I was still burping bubble tea pearls.
Time to koonz. I will share more photos and video when I am sufficiently rested from our 30-hour adventure. I will probably be dreaming of 7-speed twin clutch gearboxes and bubble tea pearls.
