With so many pictures taken during the meet, there’s always bound to be those that didn’t quite make it into the writeup, so here they are in no particular order.Read more "The cutting room floor. Cars & Kopi Spring 2020."
Hello 2020! It didn’t seem that long ago when we last had our Cars & Kopi meet and with this gathering coinciding with the local Chinese New Year long weekend, I honestly didn’t expect much of a crowd figuring most people will be busy with their family visitations. Boy was I wrong. It turned out […]Read more "A new decade. Cars & Kopi Spring 2020."
After a short hiatus of about half a year, it seemed like a pretty good time to have another one of our auto-otaku gatherings. It’s been a rather interesting year for the local automotive enthusiasts with several events held throughout the year, a reason why I was initially hesitant to have another Cars & Kopi […]Read more "A Superb ///Morning.

Which is why […]Read more "The Fun & The Curious: Visiting the 2019 International Mini Meet in Bristol"
Over the weekend, one of our automotive friends got married and I guess turning the Church carpark into a mini Cars & Kopi meet was a fun way to get the day started! Everyone came in their rockabilly best. (Or best-ish) Have you seen a better looking Wedding Car? This group represents quite possibly all […]Read more "Cars & Wedding: Congratulations Nat & Chris!"

For those few of us, driving brings us joy and anxiety, fascination and frustration, excitement and relaxation. These […]Read more "Drive to meet, meet to drive."
When it comes to how we perceive time, humans can estimate the length of an event from two very different perspectives: a prospective vantage, while an event is still occurring, or a retrospective one, after it has ended. Our experiences of time can also vary with whatever we are doing and how we feel about […]Read more "It’s a d8te! Cars & Kopi Spring 2019"
Would you believe it? It’s been 5 years since we first started having our series of regular automotive gatherings and 5 years since we started calling our little breakfast meets “Cars & Kopi”. And sometimes, even I find it hard to imagine it all started from a handful (you could literally count with one hand) […]Read more "The Simple and Small one – Cars & Kopi Winter 2018"
