This house with its ornate fencing and peculiar design has been featured in the local magazines for its aesthetic look. The inside of the house has a staircase that you usually see in a Hindustani movie. The signboard clearly shows you the business Puan Sabariah is in.
The owners of the mansion.
A Lamborghini or a Ferrari in the compound would complement this house.
Going further I saw this yellow hovercraft on its trailer wheel. A hovercraft in Pasir Mas is a rarity indeed. With a vast marshy areas around Rantau Panjang it must be extremely handy to go around the marshland to hunt or just play around. I was told the owner often use this hovercraft.
This worker posed beside the craft to show the relative size of the craft.
The pilot will sit infront. The craft is powered by a small car engine.
While buying my newspaper on the return ride home I saw this sleek car pulling off. The car's engine didn't roar so much so I didn't realise it came to stop right behind me. The awed look on the face of the newspaper man made me turn around and I too was amazed by the sight of the car. I grabbed my camera which was in my camera bag and managed to take these two shots. It was a Lamborghini no doubt. Its the Gallardo. The last time I saw such a car at MOFAZ KL, it was a Countach and was tagged at a cool RM4.5 million.
He came to buy a newspaper too so I guess he must be a local coming back to the parents house.
There is only one family in Pasir Mas who can afford and would indulge in such luxuries as I have seen sometimes back one of them driving a Mercedez 500 CLK. I rode to that house and true enough, the car was parked in front of the house.The Merc was in the house compound too but I wouldn't dare to go inside to take a picture.
I requested one of the family members whom I know to get the permission for me to post the picture of the car infront of the house and I have their consent. Emir not only managed to get me the permission but also some informations about it.
Depending on the specifications, a Lambhorhini Gallardo costs between RM1.75 to RM2 million in Malaysia. A full tank can easily fill RM300 worth of petrol at the current price. That will take the car a distance of 300 - 400 kms depending on the road traffic. The owner did a test drive at Sepang F1 circuit and he managed to top 230 kph. How is that for speed?
