Johnnie Walker has been the sponsor of McLaren F1 team for one year, so they brought the MP4-21 to Taiwan for a PR event. Though this MP4-21 is only a "show car" or just a model car, shining body still attracts people's attention.

Sometimes I wonder it was a good idea to have Jonnie Walker as a sponsor? F1 racing car should keep running, but the slogan of Johnnie Walker is "keep walking". That made McLaren's driver keep walking instead of driving. I couldn't forget how far Kimi kept walking in Monaco GP.

Recently I am planning to get a new car to replace my current 5-year old Premecy with almost 100,000Km on it. During the car hunting , there is a conflict "needs vs. wants", do I need just a car for transportation, or I want an import car for transportation and for FUN?

There is almost a one million NT dollar difference between the price of domestic cars and import cars. The quality of import car is so impressive and attractive, but the price is not so friendly.

Though I was not a good student, I still remember what teacher said in the first class of Economics, " the Economics is caused by unlimited wants vs. limited resources." It is really true!
