Formula Drift S’pore 2011: Tall, cute and dangerous

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

When a guy is tall and handsome, he’s dangerous – because he is a telling recipe for breaking hearts.


But when the guy is tall, handsome and a drifter, that’s even more dangerous!


I finally had the opportunity to interview Jo (Wattanaporn Phungpearn) of the PTT Performa Achilles Team. First noticed him back in 2009 and found him really cute, but he’s not very well-versed in English and I can’t speak a word of Thai so I couldn’t strike a proper conversation with him.


This time at Formula Drift Singapore, I had the help of the emcee Max (Thai guy who lived in the States for 8 years and hence speaks GOOD English) who acted as my translator! [THANK YOU MAX!]


Wanna find out how Jo got into this sport? What he does in his free time and if he prefers boxers or briefs?


Then check back often and wait for me to post up the interview I had with him!
