Burst and A Car Detail (This week's Photo Hunt)
I'll be honest here: I've never been a car enthusiast. Not only am I someone who prefers walking or taking public transportation to driving myself about in a car but I've never cared all that much about car details, including their styles, horse power and such. And when I did own a car (a necessity in public transport unfriendly Malaysia), I really just looked upon it as something that would get me from A to B, C, etc. rather than, say, an extension of myself or, worse, status symbol.
Nonetheless, every once in a while, a car will actually catch my eye and make me feel compelled to take a photo of it -- and I can see that an owner of a vintage car like the one I saw on display at a temple fair would come close to bursting with pride, especially when (s)he sees other people admiring and closely poring over various details of the car.
And while the combination of car and Hello Kitty is likely to make many people burst out laughing, it's more likely to cause me to make "oooo!" sounds and fish out my camera to snap photos! In most cases, the Hello Kitty components come by way of items displayed inside a car but, at Sanrio Puroland, one can behold a thoroughly Hello Kitty-fied car to pretty much the last detail!
Even then though, I actually don't aspire to own that car. Instead, I'm just content to include a photo of it in this week's entry for Sandi's and Gattina's Photo Hunts -- and hope that the sight of it, and the Hello Kitty plushie-laden car, will bring to a smile to my fellow Photo Hunters' faces. ;b
