A rare Ferrari 599 GTO, where only 599 units of such specimen is available worldwide was caught in a horrible accident involving a taxi and a motorcycle in Singapore. The aftermath of the crash has resulted in the deaths of three persons at the wee hours of last Saturday, taking place at the junction of Rochor Road and Victoria Street at 4.15 am. Reports are saying that the spot is known for being an accident-prone area.

The driver of the fastest road-legal Ferrari, a 31-year-old Chinese businessman was already killed when the paramedics reached him. 52-year-old taxi driver Cheng Teck Hock, also a father of three school-going children and his 20-year-old Japanese passenger meanwhile succumbed to their injuries and died later on at the hospital. The motorcyclist and the Ferrari’s passenger however were lucky enough to survive the crash.

Although police are still in the process of investigating the accident, a camera mounted in another taxi caught the footage of the accident, and almost got caught in it by a hair’s breadth. In the footage, it clearly shows that the Ferrari was travelling in high speeds and ran over a red light, hitting the taxi and barely misses the one recording it.


The force of the crash was so violent that it had totally turned the left side of the taxi and the Ferrari’s front side into an unrecognizable wreck. Debris of both the cars and the motorcycle were scattered all over the road, along with what it seems like an engine, most probably from the Ferrari.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
