I was actually taken by surprise when I tried to make my way on time for the Golf GTI35 Party at Kallang Airport last night.
I was already running late getting to the north end of the premises, where the map of the event said I should head, when I got stuck in a queue of VW Golfs trying to get into the premises as well.
I felt like an imposter (I drive a Volvo) trying to gatecrash, but I was helpfully guided by a flustered valet operator asking me to try my luck coming in from Nicoll Highway.
I managed to park a distance away and walk to the entrance of the party, which I might add, was really quite impressive. This had to be one of the more flamboyant car events I had ever attended.
mrbrown was just as impressed as we walloped the food on offer in between taking photographs of the cars and people.
Even if you’re not a GTI fan (there’s a gallery of GTIs from Marks I to VI), you’d appreciate the scale of the party (today and tomorrow 10am – 9pm) – there’s food, games, stilt walkers.
And don’t worry about the inclement weather we’ve been having – most of the party is under cover in Kallang’s old hangars. Go join in an have some fun!
