SYDNEY - Lamborghini Club Australia "The Bull's Roar" Magazine features Lora Christelle Lim's Writing and THE SG SISTERS!


Lamborghini Club of Australia - The Bull's Roar Magazine - Issue No. 70 - Sept 2015 - In the midst of moving into my new home, I forgot to update my address. Luckily, Secretary/Treasurer of the club - Gary Overs was kind enough to deliver the magazine to me in person and we had a short coffee session to chat over upcoming Club events. This newly printed Lamborghini Club Australia Magazine has a different feel to it as the club has changed its editor and printing company. I love the new look, creative design and the glossy new pages. This is definitely a new improved version of the Club Magazine and I hope the team will continue their great work producing our club magazines!

THE SG SISTERS visits the official Lamborghini Factory/Museum & Ferruccio Lamborghini Family Museum in ITALY - I discovered that my name "Lora Christelle Lim" was actually printed on the cover of this magazine! WOW! In this magazine, there is a special feature about how my sister Sara Shantelle Lim and I had a truly wonderful time visiting the official Lamborghini Factory/Museum in Bologna as well as the Ferruccio Lamborghini Family Museum in Funo. Special thanks to legendary ex chief test driver for Lamborghini - Valentino Balboni and Fabio Lamborghini who provided really kind and warm hospitality for our entire family during our visit in June 2015. It was an epic birthday celebration for my sister Sara as we had a private Italian gourmet lunch with Valentino Balboni the man himself! It was a really special and memorable trip as I met the only son of Ferruccio Lamborghini - Tonino Lamborghini in person and also had a private lunch with Fabio Lamborghini after a special tour around the Ferruccio Lamborghini Family Museum :)

Lora Christelle Lim's writing - It was great to see my very own writing and photos being published in print and in the most prestigious Lamborghini Club Australia magazine. I am totally ecstatic and shared the great news with my family and friends. I must say it has been a great honour and privilege to be a member of the Lamborghini Club of Australia where everyone in the club is equally passionate about exotic cars and are genuine Lamborghini aficionados. We can seriously marvel over the beauty of cars and chat about them all day! I have made great friends with the awesome people in the club and not forgetting John Edwards as well as Gary Overs for organizing all the fantastic drives for all club members. I am looking forward to the next club event!

SYDNEY - Kensington Street at Central Park Sydney - First Hawker Centre in Sydney - SPICE ALLEY


Kensington Street
Central Park, Sydney
Sydney's first hawker centre!
Address: Beside Central Park and Sydney Central Train Station
Opening Hours: 7 days from 11am-10pm

CEO and Chairman of Frasers Property Australia - Dr Stanley Quek & Lora

SYDNEY - KENSINGTON STREET - CENTRAL PARK - SPICE ALLEY - Many Asians living in Sydney can now rejoice as a brand new hawker centre named "Spice Alley" has just recently opened right in the heart of Sydney city beside Sydney Central train station and opposite UTS University. Chippendale's major face lift to become a great entertainment and vibrant arts hub was the result of the interesting foresights of Chairman of Frasers Property Australia - Dr Stanley Quek and the Executive Director of Greencliff Realty - Marcus Chang. Tucked away in almost a very "secret location", Kensington Street is a tiny lane alley with terraced shop houses that reminded me of Haji Lane in Singapore. The once forgotten terraces of Kensington Street is now Sydney's vibrant, characterful and creative urban laneway that houses restaurants, cafes, art galleries, innovative shop retailers etc. giving the place new energy, new purpose and new allure.

SYDNEY'S First Hawker Centre - Spice Alley - open 7 days a week - is simply a heaven for foodies as the place reminded me of my favourite hawker centres in Singapore as there were so many popular hawker dishes made available for diners to order. Most importantly, the place was brand new, clean and all the dishes were reasonably priced around AUD$8-$12. Diners can order food over the counter and the food was cooked really fast without long waiting times. Delicious local delights included Roti Prata, Murtabak, Penang Fried Kway Teow, Hokkien Prawn Mee, Wan Tan Mee, Katong Laksa, Chatterbox Chicken Rice, Roast Duck Rice, Crispy Pork Belly Rice, BBQ Satay Sticks, Timsum (prawn dumplings), Fried Crispy Dough Sticks, Congee etc. 

SPICE ALLEY ambience - Tastefully decorated with hanging red and yellow chinese lanterns above our heads, the courtyard filled with wooden tables and chairs provided a relaxing dining atmosphere. Even the cutlery provided were disposable wooden forks, spoons and chopsticks. Unlike most hawker centres where you will leave feeling smelly due to the smoke from cooking, this place was airy with occasional breezes and was exceptionally clean for a hawker centre. The hawkers here were extremely polite and cheerful. One of them even said to me "Enjoy your Meal" when I collected my food. Such impressive customer service! The place was not too crowded, spacious and creatively designed. Everyone was having a good time enjoying the food in the courtyard.

Singaporean chef Alex Lee cooks up a storm in the kitchen

TOP ASIAN CHEFS - Famous Asian chefs such as Alex Lee (ex- Temasek and Ginger and Spice), Uncle Jim (Uncle Jim in Mosman), Old Jim Kee (Hong Kong cuisine expert), Bang Luck (Mama's Buoi) etc. opened their stalls and helped create Spice Alley to become a top dining destination for all Asian food lovers. This place is a must visit if you love and appreciate Asian Hawker style food! Tantalise your taste buds with the wide variety of dishes from the Singapore-Malaysian, Thai, Vietnamese, Hong Kong stalls etc. You will be spoilt for choices! It is casual dining at its best!


FINAL VERDICT - Having tried a wide variety of food during my first visit, I was deeply impressed as all the dishes were authentic and tasted incredibly delicious! Some dishes even taste better than those served back home in Singapore. This place will definitely be my regular place to dine in Sydney! I only wished this place existed earlier so I won't miss Singapore's food so much!

INTERESTING PAYMENT MODES - Kindly note that the hawkers here do not handle cash. Customers are encouraged to purchase a card at the front reception, load it with value before proceeding to the various stalls to order your food. Otherwise, simply present your credit card when ordering for easy payment by using the pay wave function. Hi-tech, efficient and hygienic!

Mad about Cars - Sports Car Club Singapore (SCCS) forming SG50 Logo at Tanjong Pagar Railway Station


Sports Car Club Singapore 
#SG50 Celebration
Forming SG50 at Tanjong Pagar Railway Station


Can you spot SG50 in the photo above???

The Making of SG50 Sign by Sports Car Club Singapore


SG50 Celebration in Singapore - Recently, Sports Car Club Singapore (SCCS) formed a SG50 sign at The Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. Most of the SCCS members were involved. We took around 4 hours to complete shifting and moving everyone into place. It was super fun! At the start, we all gathered at a public car park near Vivocity before we convoy down by Car Type to Tanjong Pagar Railway Station where all the exciting action took place. There were different types of cars including Mercedes-Benz, Maserati, Bentley, Lamborghini, BMW, Porsche, Audi, Nissan GTR etc. It was an incredible feat to position every car in a strategic position in order to form the formation of the word "SG50" in perfection. It required full cooperation and patience from everyone who was involved but guess it was a memorable thing to do as part of Singapore's SG50 celebration!!! I love Singapore and am proud to be a Singaporean :)

Here are some photos taken with some of the SCCS Members...




This was what we used to capture all the action from the sky... Aerial shot!
