Q: Has your profession ever affected your car choices or your driving?
A: In my car choices, yes. Being a brand ambassadress gave me the opportunity to learn more about different cars, car parts, car products, and car services.
Q: Where did your FD’s design inspiration come from?
A: This used to be a stock FD in bluish silver color, and then I had it modified. I really intended for it to just change in color from orange to purple after that, but I decided to modify it all the way and make it look like a Type R15-inspired Honda Civic FD.
Q: How about future plans?
A: I’m still thinking about it. Maybe another color change or another set of wheels? Who knows?
Q: What do you look for in a vehicle?
A: I consider performance, modifications, and of course, reliability.
Q: How did you get into cars?
A: It started back in college when my friends and I used to watch racing events. I also remember my dad teaching me how to drive.
Q: What’s the special bond that holds you and your ride together?
A: Through ups and downs, from road trips to selfies, from sickness and in health, from boredom to happiness, and even happiness to being loveless. We’ve been through a lot!
Q: How about funny stories about you and your FD?
A: Too many to mention, really. And I’m glad my car can’t talk. It knows all of my secrets!
Q: Do guys react when you tell them that you’re into cars?
A: It’s pretty common nowadays, but there are still some who wonder why.
Q: Do guys have to be into cars for you to notice them?
A: Not necessarily, but of course, I need them to understand my feelings toward cars.
