You have a very interesting job. Care to share a bit more?
I work for PSA International, which was formerly the Port of Singapore Authority. My job requires me to guide ships from all over the world safely into Singapore waters. Some of these container ships can measure up to 400m!
Wow! I guess if you could steer that, you could steer almost anything?
Pretty much (laughs)! This blue pocket rocket is definitely not a problem. I've had it since it was new and it's approaching its fifth birthday soon!
What's your favourite thing about the car?
I love so many things about it. It's such a great all-rounder. You can drive it leisurely like an 'old man', or you can gun it like the wild thing it is. It's comfortable either way.
Have you brought it to the track?
Only once, but I drive it up north to Malaysia a lot! I've even taken it up to Thailand once! I've shared many memorable miles in this Golf R, it would be very hard for me to part with it. Till this day, it still puts a smile on my face everytime I drive it. I've just wrapped it in a metallic matt blue decal, so it looks fresh enough for a couple more years!
