Hot Import Nights 2: Car Show In Manila

Friday, April 26, 2013 Stef dela Cruz 12 Comments

I’m into expensive cars – don’t judge me. I’ve always dreamed of having a vintage Jaguar XK140 parked in the garage. The key word here is “dream”, because I’m sure I’ll never be able to afford a luxury car in my lifetime! And perhaps that fact is the perfectly tangential segue to the car show on April 20 to 21, 2013, called Hot Import Nights 2: Manila.

I know, I know, my segue needs work, ha ha! But in case you’re as eager as I am when it comes to cars, you might want to attend HIN2: Manila – that’s short for Hot Import Nights. They will be touring around the Philippines and visiting Baguio, Cebu, Bacolod, Iloilo, Davao, Pampanga, and my own province, Pangasinan! Woot!

Hot Import Nights 2: Car Show in Manila

During the press launch of Hot Import Nights (HIN) 2 in Manila, I got the chance to meet the hot girls that came with the hot cars: Eva Skye, Jeri Lee, Nicole Duminie, and Dannie Riel. They signed a poster for me – and I’m giving that poster away to one lucky winner next week! Read on and find out how you can get your hands on this poster, signed by all four beautiful girls.

Jeri Lee was part Filipino and it showed. “As they say, it’s more fun in the Philippines and I truly believe that,” she said, gamely smiling at the crowd. But if you’re thinking of taking her out on a date, I’m sorry to say that Jeri Lee is in a happy relationship. Aw, too bad for you guys!

Perhaps you’d have better luck with Nicole Duminie because she’s single and looking! When asked what her favorite car was, she pointed to the Genesis car. Whoever has test-driven the Genesis, raise your hand!

Just in case these pretty girls caught your attention (aside from the cars, of course), here’s your chance to win a HIN 2: Manila poster, autographed by all four ladies!

  1. Yes Deftly Car is necessary in this polluted and fast moving traffic. It matters luxury when and what brand we choose. When a family with more than one kid deftly cant go together for a shopping / movie or even to drop the kids to school in motor Cycle. As of my view luxury comes when a family choose second car for prestigious issue when one is more than enough.

  3. Yes,Cars are a necessity for large families (such as vans, etc) to get you where you need to go. I'm sure not that many people enjoy having to pay gas weekly at such high rates either. However, let's say you win the lottery. Getting a car and moving into a new house instead of limiting improvement to a current life position means you are eager, greedy, flashy, and want to travel down a luxurious path.

  4. Cars are necessities. How else can we travel long distances comfortably? They're part of our daily living and for most men who are fanatics, their car is their extension of their being. If I would be a car I would be a Lamborghini Ankonian LOL

  5. In the Philippine setting, having a car means having to buy and maintain it. It takes too much on the budget so I say it is a luxury.

  7. I personally consider it as a necessity. Sure, it might cost a lot to maintain a car but costs can be reduced by making good choices on the brand and make of the car. Good habits can also contribute to reducing costs. I always arrive at work early, I can handle my time better and save a lot of it as well. Lastly, I don't worry much about availability of public transportation ,whatever time it is.

  8. Necessity. These days, more and more people, whether poor (only some though) or rich have their own cars. It’s not only for the convenience when traveling but for easing up transport of goods as well, and also for running various errands.

  10. For me having a car is very necessary to every person. It has a lot of advantages if you have a car, but sad to say I dont even have a car :-(
