What a weekend it was!

To be in Singapore for not only my first time (!) but also for the first EVER night race was quite amazing! I’m a lucky girl…and the envy of a lot of my friends!

I went along with the internal and external AirAsia winners who had won tickets to the race. We were able to enter on all three evenings to catch a glimpse (literally!) of the F1 cars zooming around the track.

Before the first evening I was able to wonder around the city and get a feel for the place. I really liked the feeling of Singapore and of course I went along to the famous Raffles Hotel!

Singapore Sling anyone?!

The first night we were all deafened by the sound of the cars going by – and frustrated that my camera was not quite fast enough to catch a good picture of them!

But there was a great buzz around the place. Bands, drummers, dancers, hawker stalls – it almost felt more like a festival than an F1 race – and with the back drop of the Singapore esplanade it was really something special!

AirAsia was of course very happy with one of our AT&T Williams driver coming in 2nd place but for me it was a great weekend watching a fantastic race. I think I am a new fan of F1 and definitely of Singapore – I’ll be going back there again soon!

I’m the tall English girl in the company and I help organize sport and recreational activities for the lovely AirAsia staff. The perfect job for me as sport is really where my passion lies; anything and everything, I’ll give it a go! Lacrosse is my main sport but over here in Malaysia its played about as much as quidditch…so I spend my time running, swimming, netballing and tennising and soon I will be trying my hand at rugby for the first time – why not?!

As well as sport I love traveling; and South East Asia is an amazing place to be to explore; Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Indonesia – the list is endless!

A friend of mine recently set me a task to visit all of AirAsia’s destinations – I think I’ve got quite a few more to go before that’s completed!

Other favorite things are extreme activities; bungee jumping, sky diving, glacier hiking…next thing on my list is Mount Kinabalu and the Macau bungee which is over 200m, and I will have ticked off another AirAsia destination – get in!

  1. That sounds like great fun. Wish I was there too! Maybe I’ll get a chance next time 😉

  2. It is a memorable race. I am watching livecast whole night. The track is not as bright as day race. Those photographer must have hard time then.
