Dayuum 2 Year Anniversary

Words by Gilbert

If you’re local to the southern california area, you know when there’s a Guppy Grand Opening, Dayuum is always out there in full force promoting it. This was Guppy’s 8th location to open up and it was actually a pretty huge success as well.  There was lots of foot traffic for a restaurant’s grand opening and there were plenty of people in queue to get into the restaurant to eat at the Taiwanese style eatery.

As well as models in various costumes like Arley Elizabeth, Serena Su, Ashley Clark, Regina Meii, Marie Alvarez and Lily Evans. I didn’t manage to get all their photos though, so I apologize for that.

Formula D Round 7: Title Fight 2013

Words by Gilbert,

As the Formula D seasons comes to another close and a new champion is crowned, the venue returns to Irwindale Speedway. This time, we didn’t have a booth so I just headed to the venue just as it was opening to the public. For future reference, show up early because parking was ridiculous at that time and I almost couldn’t find a spot. On to the show side, I didn’t have track access again so I couldn’t get any of the awesome drifting action so there’s only model coverage from the Vendor spaces that occupy the car show side.

Pacific BMW Accessoryfest 2013

Words by Gilbert.

This was my second time attending the BMW Accessoryfest event and this year was a bit more exciting than I remembered compared to last year’s.  Mostly because they went all out with a full-on fashion show to showcase their apparel and I thought it was fairly well organized. Also, there were plenty of music and things going on throughout the day to keep you occupied, whether it was grabbing some food, getting some beverages from the octoberfest theme-dressed ladies, relaxing in the customer lounge or just checking out the cars that were in the lot.

Of course, being a BMW event, MFest was there with a strong presence and industry regular models like Sandra Wong, Arley Elizabeth and Jessica Weaver were in attendance.

There were also some interesting cars that caught my attention while walking through the lot. Primarily the Steve Urkel car from Family Matters. I remembered his was painted red but I’ve never seen this car up close before.

Dub Show Tour – Anaheim 2013

Words by Gilbert

And this weekend marks another edition of the DUB show tour in Anaheim, CA. I was there only for a couple hours to bring you coverage of familiar models that we all know. I was mostly around the vendor area walking around shooting the booths. With the earliest memory I have of the DUB Show, it’s nice to see that not much has changed and the styling and atmosphere is still the same.

No one likes the TUNA episode 4 – Arley Elizabeth

So here’s the 4th episode of “No one likes the TUNA” episode 4. Still not perfect but we’re trying to get there. Brian couldn’t make it so Xena Kai was gracious enough to fill in for him and she may even return for the next show along with Chaba who also couldn’t make it to attend a cousins graduation. Also, we had a new boom guy who didn’t realize every little shuffle and move he made with the boom mic would translate to an irritating knock and rubbing noise so we apologize for the sound. He has since been horrifically executed and will be replaced by a ladder… Anyways we talk “Fast and Furious 6″ answer some questions, recap Eibach Wekfest LA and Autocon, and talk to “Arsely” Elizabeth… get it!? Arsely? Cause she has a nice arse! JK all joking aside we talk to Arley Elizabeth and anal twerking and anal escapades. The car being shot is Prestige Marketing’s newly acquired GT wide BMW M3 shot by Keith “Keychain” Cheng. Hope you enjoy the show and thank you for watching! If you have questions you can email us at info@noonelikesthetuna.com.

Formula D Round 1: Streets of Long Beach

Words and Photos by Gilbert

The Formula D Season kicks off its first event on the Streets of Long Beach. Traditionally the weekend before the Long Beach Grand Prix and this year continues to do so.  Unfortunately for myself, I couldn’t get track-access so I didn’t get to go up close to the drifting action to shoot the coverage, but I still did my usual thing covering all the lovely ladies working the show.  Although there wasn’t exactly a model lounge, it kinda makes things a bit interesting to find models spread throughout the venue.  Although, I apologize for completely missing the JDM Sport booth, I heard there was a large group of models chilling over there.  Also, I need to give a big Shoutout to Freddie of Autofashion x TrendyVape for giving me a spot to camp out and put my gear down when I needed a break. Also, be sure to check out TrendyVape when you’re down in San Diego for your Vaping needs!

My E-Vic wrapped with the custom Hello Kitty print from TrendyVape. Super trendy.

Later in the day, I spotted a big crowd gathered together in the walkway, so I headed over for a look thinking there might’ve been a fight or something, turns out it was a couple of kids in a dance battle.

Then throughout the day, there was more silliness from the models

Adventures with Big Abe – Formula D Tech Day + Model Meet & Greet

Words and Photos by Gilbert.

Formula D in conjunction with Source Interlink Media (Import Tuner, Super Street, etc) hosted a Tech Day Meet where they had the Formula D cars come into the facility for inspections and what not and people were allowed to catch a glimpse of the cars up close while they aren’t shredding tires on the streets. There was a big turnout as it doubled as a local car meet which followed the Popular Cars & Coffee meets that happen every Saturday morning down in Irvine as well.  In addition, there were several models in attendance signing calenders and cover issues of various magazines as well.

Big Abe’s adventure started with running into Arley Elizabeth and being greeted with a swift kick which caught me by surprise

But the biggest highlight I saw of the day was Abe managed to get not 1 but 2 models to Autograph his neck. I thought that was kinda cool.
