Kanjo Inspired : Aqwa's Honda Civic EK3

What's up guys, for those who followed would already know how far I've been. But recently I felt I wanted to return to my roots. In Malaysia there are a lot of Civic users, but these particular one had a bit of history with me. Before I was any good with the camera, I was already practicing on shooting cars and Aqwa's Civic was the first car I properly shot.
Throwback: Aqwa's EK3 in 2011
Fast forward to 2014
When I first met Aqwa, his Civic was a very typical looking Civic you would find in Malaysia with a JDM look. Sitting on Advan rims, standard offsets and a slight drop. Now it's all different now. Still keeping it clean but now with some colour on those Work Wheels. According to Aqwa, he did his car according to the Civics from Osaka JDM which is running a stock engine, having a decent stance but most importantly keeping it clean.

We first had some coffee at a restaurant in a dark area of Puchong, to me it was the perfect place to shoot so we ended up doing some shots just 500 meters from the restaurant. After that, at 12 midnight, we went out and rolled on the Damansara Puchong Highway.

As it rolls, I realized how this car adapted from two different styles over the past 3 years or so. Yet it still kept clean and admirable. I wouldn't be surprised since Aqwa isn't into the pursuit of horsepower and drag times like most Civic guys. I guess that's why he calls his car 'Puteri' ('Princess' in Bahasa Malaysia).

MC got bored so he photoshopped Yoona from Girls Generation and turned it into a movie poster.

But looks ain't always how it seems. After shooting, we hung out and talk about their weekend adventures highway boosting with their crew that they call themselves 'LowJunkies' as the live with the code to have both form and function. I got to say, these boys don't f*ck around.
