Auto & Event: Charged Hong Kong - May 2015 Gathering

The EV owners meet-up on 29th May at Jockey Club's Happy Valley Clubhouse was our third major event since Model S arrived in Hong Kong and the Tesla Rally last year. It was also my first time to attend as Tesla Motors Group Representative of Charged Hong Kong. Many thanks to all committee members of Charged Hong Kong for this nomination.

The weather was not exactly helpful that evening. Drizzles added extra work to the staff as they had to shift tables to maximise coverage. Mosquitoes started their dinner early as I counted more than 10 bites on both my forearms and my neck despite having repellent OFF! applied, while our dinner started late as the food was not ready until almost 7:30pm.

However, despite all those glitches, all members still had a great time mingling. Laughs and jokes were radiating out from my table in particular and attracted many other to come and join the fun. We had such good fun that everyone found it difficult to leave!

The barbecue lamb racks and sirloin steaks were among the tenderest and tastiest I have ever had! Definitely the focus of the meal! The rest of the food was alright.

At 9:45pm, 15 minutes from the end time of the event, my wife and I bid the rest goodbye and headed back to our car. I wanted to take some photos of the EVs with my DSLR before leaving and just as I was getting ready, everybody else came down to the car park at the same time. Before I could make sense of the happening, fellow owners were already moving their cars to park next to one another.

Thanks to their effort, I was able to take some awesome photos.

I suppose it was because our gadget king Bill was about to leave and so everyone else who wanted to check out his Teslamobile took their chance for one quick glimpse of his modification work.

After that night, I was already looking forward to our next gathering! I will have gifts to donate for the lucky draw next time round!
