Anime Cars Festival in Odaiba

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

A festival in Japan called “Itasha G Fesuta” took place last Sunday, November 9  in Japan which featured around 450 cars. It was organized by a popular Japanese graphical magazine. The term “itasha” refers to cars which have been illustrated upon by anime, manga and video game character decals. “Itasha” is also a transliteration of “Itariasha” (Italian car) which often connotes fashionable design.

Subaru Forester 2008 Launch

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

I attended the Subaru Forester Launch with my dad last July 2, 2008 at EDSA Shangri-la Hotel. It was a great event, with lots of food, drinks and cool gifts. The new model is superb and definitely roomier than the previous model. They also redesigned the exterior and looks more modern than the 2007 model which I already own.

We didn’t get to explore the vehicle that much while in the event because we were enjoying the finely cooked roast beef they served!  We can always get to see the car some other time and even test drive it. Hehe.

Check out what they gave to those who attended. It’s definitely adorable! XD
