Yups, again in a Honda. My previous media drive with Honda was in July 2010, when a bunch of us had a blast in a half day drive in the Honda Freed.

Oh memories! And who can forget my infamous picture? Hehe.. ;-)

Incidentally, I was at the Asian Auto Ambank – Fuel Efficiency Awards 2011 Dinner just yesterday nght and the Honda Freed won the 1st price for the Compact MPV segment, gurgling only 6.1l of fuel for every 100km drive.


The Honda Insight won too! It came in 3rd place in the Hybrid category, at an impressive 4.6l/100km, behind Toyota Prius 3rd Gen and Lexus CT200H. Congrats Honda!

And today we shall see the Honda Insight in action!
Our itinerary is looking good; starting off with briefing at The Bee (NOW!) and upon flag off we are headed for Avillion Port Dickson for lunch. The Amazing Pace game runs concurrently with the first leg of the drive, with each driver behind the wheel for about 40 minutes before passing it onto the next driver.

Lunch is at Avillion Port Dickson. This is going to be my first time at Avillion. I have heard much praises about the resort and finally I’ll get to see what’s the fuss is about.

Our luxurious rest stop tonight came in the form of  Philea Resort & Spa, the first and largest log resort chronicled in the Malaysia Book of Records, which prides itself on being an eco-friendly resort. Built using natural resources, I was told that Philea is an indulgent and modern wellness retreat built within pristine greenery.

Oh my, I can’t wait! Stay tuned alright, as I will try to update as much as I can. Follow me on Twitter @wackybecky and FB for live updates!

Tomorrow we are hitting Thistle Resort at Port Dickson before finally arriving back in dusty KL at 4pm. So it’s a 2D1N trip, all thanks to Honda Malaysia! 🙂

Meanwhile, check out my wacky Honda Freed experiences below. Pics and videos included! 🙂
