    Car Closest to Formula 1

    Hey guys ! Just curious and wanting to know cars that have a similar technology to what Formula 1 car has. The closest could ever get to a formula 1 car and why. Could be looks, technology, speed, all of the above? you name it. Personally my top 2 picks are the LaFerrari as it is as close as it could get to a F1 car for its technology, and Lexus LFA for its Screaming V10 sound.

    Feeling a little bit emo...

    As the title says, feeling a little bit emotional (no, not cos 7th month and RadX coming out of hell ) So, here goes: Work has been trying and many ppl are resigning (like average 4 per week kind) , stress levels are at an all time high.It's becoming a struggle to decide whether to leave or stay. Decided to go for a walk at vivo rooftop to get some fresh air, destress, take in the sea view, and contemplate my future. Guess what, I bumped into my recent ex with a new guy, being all touchy and stuff, and it was shocking! We still did admit very recently that we had feelings for each other and very recently just met. I wish her happiness but it was just shocking! Supposed to go there to destress but now IDK how to feel! Life has been a series of unfortunate circumstances and quite of a downward spiral of late and I just wanna rant Mods please delete if there's a similar thread or if it's deemed pure rubbish. Also, I realised I'm really pathetic when my good friend borrowed my car to go on a date cos he knows I have no one to go out with (ok maybe I'm overthinking and it was cos he knew I as sick and on MC) Seeking advice on life and whatnot from ma bros here who know and met me, and even those that haven't! P.S if got any single good looking xmm above 20 to intro also lmk HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA JKJK Ok rant over, Peace Out ! #millennialcrisis #help

    7 Thoughts of Life

    1) Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life. Never ask for a lighter rain. Just pray for a better umbrella. - That is attitude! 2) Life is not about finding the right person, but creating the right relationship. It is not how we care in the begining, but how much we care till the very end 3) Some people always throw stones in your path. It depends on what you make with them. A Wall or a Bridge? - Remember you are the architech of your life. 4) Search for a beautiful heart, but don't search for a beautiful face. Coz beautiful things are not always good, but good things are always beautiful. 5) It's not important to hold all the good cards in life. But it's important how well you play with the cards you hold. 6) Often when we lose all hope & think this is the end. God smiles from above and says, 'relax dear, it's just a bend, not the end.' - Have faith and have a successful life. 7) One of the basic differences between God and humans is..... God gives, gives, gives and forgives. But humans gets, gets, gets and forgets.

    New Citreon DS4 - any thoughts?

    Hi All Went to take a look at it in showroom. PROS: nice design both in and out 1.6L turbo engine lots of features included (gps, electronic handbrake, massage function for driver's seat, bluetooth, paddle shift, xenon headlights, DRL, etc) CONS: back space quite cramped rear window cannot wind down no push button start, only turn key no LED taillights no moon/panaromic roof Priced @ $136k (as of yesterday). Slightly more expensive than Pug 3008 although 3008 is actually bigger in size.

    My thoughts for today 28june2012

    If I contribute monthly my money to CPF at 30%++ of my salary, this is to be part of Singaporean membership. I will have no choice but to support for ths scheme. If I willing pay $50k for a COE of my money, this is to be part of car owner membership. I will have no choice but to open my mind to accept and support for the scheme. Including the monthly fuel fees and road tax installment. I cannot be hypocrite to say that the monies I paid towards CPF or COE is against my will and how it was subsequently used, I also have to accept it no matter what. I will stand by my opinion to support the CPF n COE scheme, as it give me a retirement safety net, when I know I will be heavenly rewarded with monthly cash back to tied me over old age. The ten years of COE membership, gave me much pride and satisfaction that I know I have done well financially in life to afford simple pleasures for myself n family transportation needs. Thus I will never be stupiak enough to tell the whole world how rich or how noble or how suckered I am to contribute so much money in order to enter into the membership scheme.

    Singapore - My thoughts

    For many years, I have contemplated writing this post but procastinated because of sloth. I have finally mustered enough conviction to do so. I was born and bred in Singapore. In the course of growing up, I have seen Singapore change in many aspects. The physical aspects today are a far cry from what we had in the 60s and 70s. Tall glass-cladded skyscrapers line the cityscape juxtaposed against carefully conserved and prettily painted shophouses. Transport infrastructure has expanded to cover the island and link the ends of Singapore in a network of expressways. HDB flats are no longer monotonous slabs of concrete and metal but have evolved into resplendent edifices boasting glass and designer trims. The people of Singapore have changed too. As a young boy, I always felt that people were helpful and my neighbours were always ready to lend a helping hand in any situation. Folks that I met in the street had ready smiles on their faces and were not always in a rush to somewhere. Fast forwarding to present-day Singapore, it seems that Singaporeans have lost that element of kinship and closeness. We now cocoon ourselves in our own private worlds, walled up by the music that we blast into our ears. Surrounded by people yet I feel a sense of loneliness. Smile at people and they think that you are either nuts or gay. What has happened in the last few decades to result in this multi-dimensional transformation of the ugly but sincere duckling into a beautiful but proud swan? Personally, I feel meritocracy has played a large part in this. The drive towards excellence coupled with the hunger that people of the early years had pushed the cutting edge further in all areas. Building after building were torn down and replaced with awe-inspiring towers. Cars did not live past their first decade and were scrapped in their infancy because it made more sense economically to do so. As the humble folks found material success, their pride swelled and arrogance naturally set in. In their minds, they made it because they were superior. And to them, the folks who didn't make it (materially) deserved a poorer lifestyle. Their children, born into material wealth, were served by their helpers and did not develop the humility that their parents and/or grandparents once had. They are of the idea that they deserve everything that they have. 物极必反,乐极生悲 In English (loosely), anything carried to the extreme becomes negative, even happiness. While meritocracy serves its purpose as a guideline, it becomes the stake in the heart of a nation when it is the only driving principle of the people. Without tempering meritocracy with compassion, it is a lethal blade that lops heads off mercilessly. Only with compassion can meritocracy produce the optimal outcome - a nation of intelligent, driven and caring people who are diligent yet care for their neighbours. There will not be a need to teach graciousness (if it can be taught in the first place that is) for it is a natural product of compassion. Singapore is now a beautiful shell that is slowly losing her soul, a beautifully made-up lady without nary a personality. After reading all of the above, you probably think that I am anti-PAP for their policies are widely thought to be the key in the transformation of this country. That could not be further from the truth. I believe that a country is defined by people who share a largely common vision and set of goals. While PAP has been instrumental in kick-starting the transformation, the people were the key drivers to make that transformation blueprint a reality. Therefore neither credit nor fault can be attributed to just the incumbent party. We, the people of Singapore, share the credit and fault. Many netizens channel their anger and frustration into words and behaviour that reek heavily of anti-PAP sentiments. The online atmosphere is so heavily charged with negativity and hatred that it has become stifling and even unnerving. Yet, one needs to recognise that this is a natural development. Puncture a balloon and the escaping air comes out all at once. The accessibility of the Internet is the needle that has pricked the balloon. And the angry voices that we hear online is the repressed air that is suddenly freed. The rule of the PAP is paternalistic. The government is the father and we are the children. Policies were set and we listened and followed. That worked for the first couple of decades. The old guard in the PAP were a highly talented and very driven group of people whose motivations were closely knitted with their love for the budding nation and her people. In the formative years, their guidance helped light the way for a country which was just coming out of the darkness of the separation from Malaysia. The policies that governed the spheres of Education, Housing, Transport, Foreign Affairs, Defence and more were brilliant in spite of and, especially because of, their pragmatic focus on the fundamentals. It was about equipping a young nation with the tools and capabilities required to first survive and then to grow. We were innoculated with the foresight of the old guard against the turbulence of the region that we are in. Sadly, the policies that we had in the early years did not keep pace with the rapid growth that Singapore experienced. Increasingly and more often than not, we reacted rather than preempted. The focus that we had shifted away from the fundamentals because our perception of the fundamentals had changed. Moral education was one of the focus areas in the early days of primary and secondary school education. This was done away as the focus shifted to the academics - the hard sciences and mathematics. The ranking of public schools and the unofficial tagging of the KPIs of people managing these schools to these rankings resulted in the commercialisation of these operatives. Schools focused on aspects that would help in the ranking and conveniently threw out those that did not. Moral education was one of the lambs that were sacrificed. Singapore today is tightly connected to the rest of the world. Information flows to and from Singapore in a blink of the eye. The pace of life has accelerated to that of the global economy. Amidst the hustle and bustle of connected living, we have failed to realise that we are slowly losing our soul as a nation, losing our human touch as a people. The old lady on the street collecting cardboard boxes is an unseen part of the landscape. She represents the forgotten and imporverished minority who are unable to keep up with the high speed changes in the country. She does not even know where she can get help. She just lives her life as she knows it, hour by hour, day by day. Dinner for her is a bonus, not a given. Whose fault is it that the old lady has been neglected by the largely well-to-do society that does not need to worry about their next meal? It is all our fault. Not just the PAP, not just the leaders but every single one of us who are better off than her. Do we care enough to even just turn our heads to look at her when we walk past her? And if we do gaze upon her hunched back, do we care enough to offer her some help? The voices online scream of leadership that has failed to serve this forgotten group but do we pause to consider that we ourselves may be guilty of the same crime? At the end of the day, it is not about pushing blame from the people to the leaders to the people. Everyone is at fault. We live our lives day after day pursuing the latest gizmos and nicest holiday trips. If we have enough for a holiday trip, do we not have enough to give to that old lady down the street? Why push the blame to someone else when we ourselves are negligent also? It is time we wake up and grow up. And stop being indignant little children thinking only of our own misery and unhappiness. Familiarity breeds contempt. When the going gets tough, it is always easy to blame the boss, blame the government, blame prataman, blame the police, blame the bloody arrogant army guy. It is always easy to blame everyone else except ourselves. Guilt is one of the most sickening feelings that man can experience and many of us conveniently avoid that by pointing the finger of blame somewhere else. The more blame we can pile onto someone else, the better we feel. Yet, how many of us really think about the blame that we ourselves deserve? After all, we are people of the nation, are we not? Let's start looking at ourselves and think about how we can honestly make a change within ourselves and do our part for the people around us. If the government is not listening, talk to them. Visit the MP (whichever party they may be) and speak to them instead of just grumbling online about the policies you read of in the newspapers. If you disagree with their policies, speak up and let them know. They are human beings after all even if some of them may think that they are smarter than the rest of Earth. The key is in working together with the people who do care and get more people around you to care. It is not about revenge or purging the people in power because of your personal hatred for them. It is about recognising that there are strengths in the existing established system. It is about recognising that these strengths can be complemented by what you or your party can offer. It is about making a difference in our own daily living through the willingness to grow and mature. Don't just harp on Mas Selamat's escape and then keep mum when asked whether WKS should be fired - Walk the talk and offer working solutions not more problems. Don't just work up people's emotions and hope that people will vote because they get emotional - Guide them, teach them and help give them wisdom. Don't just destroy the established system that the nation has built up over the last few decades - Work with it and make it better. If you are doing all these, then you are just fighting for your own selfish desires and not for the people in your community because you do not think about the future for them. Singapore is becoming a pretty but empty shell. Let's work together with the people who have the passion, experience and capability but needs a bit of knocking on the head to bring her soul back. Lastly, lest we forget, at the end of the day, be it WP, PAP, NSP, we are still the people of Singapore.

    Mercedes S 500L- thoughts and opinions

    What do you think of 2007 S500's for sale? Any reliability issues? The multi-contour seats attract me to the car a lot and that grunt of the V8... Please voice your honest opinion's. Thank You!
  16. Been a while since I started any thread on MCF... I'm driving a almost 2 years Honda FIT RS. My daughter was recently added to my family lineup so I have now 3 kids (6, 3 & 4 months). Due the my daughter's arrival, I must now get a maid to help out with the chores and the kids. Of late I find that my car is a bit cramped even for the current lineup. Add a maid into the picture and it'll be more cramped than ever. My car would be 2 years old in Dec 2010 and was thinking of changing to either a Civic or Stream of the same age Dec 08 or Jan 09. My question is that is it wise to take a 7 year loan on a 2 year old car? If you have other makes in mind, please do share. Also do share what are the considerations that I should take note of. Your thoughts please...

  20. One day, the young lion asked his mom: "Mom, where is the happiness?" Mom replied: "It's on your tail." So the young lion keeps on chasing his tail. But after a whole day of trying, he failed to get the happiness that was on his tail. Then he told his mom about this, his mom smiled and said: "Son, you don't really need to chase after your happiness, as long as you keep going and moving forward, your happiness will always be with you." Wish everyone of you find your happiness. You can't decide the length of life, but you can control how you want to live it. You can't control the weather, but you can control your mood. You can't change your look, but you can smile. You can't control others, but you can control yourself. You can't foresee tomorrow, but you can utilize today wisely. You can't win everything, but you can try your very best to achieve that. Hope everyone can face the daily life positively and always happy...

    Food for thoughts

    What is the difference between Self-employment and Business? Many people thought they are in business when actually they are just self-employed. I believe that there is a difference between owning a business and self-employment. Owning a business is when the business continues to run when the owner is not around, whereas self-employment is when the owner has to be present in order for the business to continue its operations. Thus, if you need to be there to run your shop/business and if you stop, the business cannot go on, then you

    TOP TEN THOUGHTS FOR 2008

    TOP TEN THOUGHTS FOR 2008 Number 10 Life is sexually transmitted. Number 9 Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die. Number 8 Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich. Number 7 Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks. Number 6 Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs. Number 5 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing. Number 4 All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. Number 3 Why does a slight tax increase cost you $200.00 and a substantial tax cut saves you $0.30? Number 2 In the '60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal. AND THE NUMBER 1 THOUGHT FOR 2008: We know exactly where one cow with Mad-cow-disease is located among the millions and millions of cows in America, but we haven't got a clue as to where thousands of illegal immigrants and terrorists are located. Maybe we should put the Department of Agriculture in charge of immigration. And the BONUS thought for today
