Feel like a VIP

Not too long ago, I signed up for a Proton Exora VIP test-drive session and was lucky to be selected to join the event. I don't know what's in it for us that signed up but I just did it anyway since hubby and I were both interested in MPVs if we were to buy a new car one day. So it was nice that I got selected and I get to bring hubby along. The sad thing is we're not allowed to bring children along. Luckily I have my babysitter to turn to.

We were one of the early birds to arrive. So we got to enjoy breakfast longer.

Each couple were given a clipboard. This is part of the itenary for the event.

I even got a chance to meet a celebrity mommy blogger, Merryn. ;) One very hot mama.

There were brief talks on parenting issues as part of the programme.

Fullhouse Cafe in Sunway Giza Mall. Quite a cool venue to host the event. This is where the talks and briefings were held. Not to forget the meals provided too! That car is so super cute!

Do I look like a reporter? I'm suppose to be a VIP ler.

All the participants for the event. Everyone was excited to take the picture that we shielded the poor Exora car at the back. LOL.

All set to go! I am test-driving first. Route was from Sunway Giza Mall in Kota Damansara to Desa Parkcity in Kepong.

The car comes with GPS. (for high line in Exora only) 

My dear hubby testing on how it would feel to be a passenger right at the back row.

It's his turn now! What a poser.

When we arrived in Desa Parkcity, we were taken to the car park near the park for a performance test-drive session. The aim was for us to test the Advanced Braking System (ABS).

This was the car we drove. Nice?

One of the challenge for everyone to participate. The challenge is to put all the luggage, golf bag and a stroller into the boot as fast as we can.

While I was on my way to the washroom, I can't help but to snap a pic of this beautiful scenery of the park in Desa Parkcity.

Look at all the Exoras lining up.

We were treated to more food and talks when we returned to Fullhouse Cafe in Sunway Giza Mall.
All in all it was a good experience as I've never been to a test-drive session before. It was also not a normal test-drive as we had the priviledge to do the performance test-drive. What's more to be treated like a VIP. The Proton team were also very helpful and friendly. We were all given a series of questions to test our knowledge about the car and also 2 challenges to perform like the Storage Challenge and the Blind Fold Parking Challenge. It was great fun and everyone returned home with a prize, voucher and goody bag! ;)
