Much ado about Royce

When we were in the city, we visited the state museum, the only one in Sabah. They say that our visit to Kota Kinabalu is never complete without checking this place out so we included it in our itinerary. Anyway, I enjoy visiting national museums.

Like in any other museums for that matter, taking photos inside is not allowed. We had to check-in our cameras at the counter before we went inside the main entrance. But before that, we had to satisfy ourselves by taking photos of the bulding. One memorable display we found was a blue Rolls Royce.

The famous Rolls Royce mark, The Spirit of Ecstasy, and our reflections.

The king of Thailand has a custom made royce but instead of the 'spirit of ecstasy' the symbol of the king is in its place. ;)

@Jim: that's interesting. i think most important people wanted their own Royce, customized too. in every society, owning a car is a statement, it says something about you and the life you lead.

@Dong: really? i am always in my most eager mood when i hold my camera.

photo cache: i am not into cars either. it's a guy thing i think. but i don't like flowers either so i don't know where to put myself in the stereotypes. yea, i like that composition too, the facade of the museum provided a nice frame for the Royce.
