In Love.. Naza KIA..Valentine's Day 2012

Came upon this advertisement from Kia promoting Valentine's Day contest
"Sexride with Kia Forte Koup, Valentines-2012-contest"

Since we owned a Naza Suria KIA car, am thinking of to try our chances to win a rides with this sexy Kia Forte Koup and might put this car in our plan as second choice for next car.
During the first year of working after graduation in Year 2006, the first car we aims were NAZA Kia... Suria.. our first car who accompanies us for 4 years of Valentine's Day!!

I always like this car when first find out the car from nearest dealer near Sri Petaling. Our first impression towards the car was at a glance from the image of the Suria appearing in the local dailies, the new Naza Suria gains a slightly sportier facelifted bumper with a different foglamp design as well as a new mesh grille sporting the Naza logo. This car is so perfect for two of us who need only a minicar and the budget was just fine.

From the front end of the car, it always give impression it looks like a old man with mustache. Look at the photo, doesn't it look like an Charlie Chaplin moustache ^.^ who guide us to drive carefully and watch out whenever driving on the road.

This car has a 1.1 litre SOHC engine which we thought might be a limits travel to some places but actually it was not. Ever since we bought it, it has companied us travel to lots of places in Malaysia such as Penang, Malacca, Kuantan, Cherating, Johor and etc.. So far, it never make us dissapointed.

From up the Hill Genting Highlands

Johor Bharu                                      
Down to South 

We were happy to be able reach designated destinations around Malaysia from North to South without have to take long journey bus which is tiring.

With this blog, we wish to given chances rides with Kia Forte to go further up.. maybe to oversea such as Singapore, Thailand or other country for incoming 2012 Valentine's Day celebrations while adding memory to the days with KIA model car.

Of course with additional spending money while on our ways to our next journey with Kia Forte Koup
