"I love biking, snorkelling and playing almost all kinds of sports. I also love driving, both in the city and out of town, particularly to Pak Chong every Sunday. I am choosy and particular but use my cars for a long time. I don’t like to keep changing. Normally, I’ll change every 100,000-200,000 kilometres. My two previous cars were ES 300s and I have been wanting to use a hybrid car but small, compact Eco cars seem to dominate the market." 

"Then in 2009, when I was about to change the car I heard that Lexus was going hybrid. So I went for a test drive and chose the RX 450h. The car looks so cool with good performance, impressive acceleration, easy to drive and quiet. Particularly when using the power system, there is no pollution at all.

Driving long distances is fun, taking bends at high speed on the highway can be controlled at your command. System changing from engine to electric motor is very smooth, not jerky, unlike other brands where you can feel the jerk. Above all, it has great fuel economy.
