1977 Safari Rally Kenya

From the gruelling 1977 Safari Ralli in Kenya comes this 3rd place victory by the Team Lancia Alitalia, this time its a Lancia Stratos HF driven by Sandro Munari with co driver Piero Sodano with a final classification time of 13:14 on 5949km with 81 time controls, they where 2:09 behind the 1st place Bjorn Waldegard and Hans Thorzselius in a Ford Escort RS1800.

I hope to get the 1:18 Kyosho version someday.

This is the 1:43 scale version by IXO

My Son's First Diecast Display

This is one of the reason why I am busy these days, I'm proud of my son Kenshin's first diecast display. SM Annex mall invited our group DCPH to hold a diecast exhibit last week, and it should've been father and son display but they where short of glass display cases so I decided its Ken's turn to display for a change. Although he didn't have a chance to help me arrange his collection because he still had school the following day and ingress was held late at night, my wife helped me arrange them. Then last weekend we all went there to check it out.

Next post would be with our other members display collection.

Fifa World Cup 2010

Ah yes!! one of the reasons why I was preoccupied these days aside from work hehe! I'm a soccer fan ever since my grade school days when we would play morning noon til early evening. Pele, Beckenbauer, Platini enlightened me with their kinds of plays, This three where my hero, and after their retirement, I grew cold to soccer.
But getting older has got me back to loving the sport, with players like Zidane, Ronaldo, Kaka, Ronaldhino, Rovaldo.

Brazil was always my top choice, but I always like Italy, Spain, Germany and France and Argentina.

FIFA World Cup 2010 matches like these recent games, a perfect example would be between Germany and Spain kept me in the early mornings. (2:30am)

My favorite shirts nowadays...

and since Spain won over Germany...
goodluck to both the Netherland and Spain!

I also hope Germany gets 3rd place on Saturday!

Congratulations to Spain for winning the 2010 FIFA World Cup!!
