>Yesterday Earth Day was abit bored as my customer suddenly had to go outstation and had to cancel a detailing session, so, i decided to detail up my own ride as it was lacking some love lately.
The hilarious thing was, i woke up at 9.30am and thought it was a working day, panic! rush to the showers and was looking for excuses to tell my boss, then i realize =.= it was a saturday
Anywayz, my car was well maintained as i really had a passion for detailing and polishing it with hand before i got in touched with the detailing circle.
Some teasers before all

Lesson learnt from this session,
if ur pad it not big enought, dont force into right places!
watch out of sharp areas, pads might get damages or cutted!!
like KC says to me, the best detailing is the owner! its true
