The Ladies of Wekfest San Jose 2014

As every automotive enthusiasts would know, Wekfest has been known as one of the best automotive event across the entire United States. They are known to put all vehicles and vendors through a filtering process to ensure quality is highly represented at all events. With their stop at San Jose, Ca. this past weekend, Aug. 10, you bet this was another hit that made all the Bay Area folks all excited, even us, who are from Southern California. We made the trip and made it a memorable one.

The Ladies of SpoCom Anaheim 2014

SpoCom has always been a favorite of mine when it comes to automotive shows. Even though we’ve missed the one up in NorCal a couple of months ago, we can’t let this one slide and miss the opportunity of joining one of the best in the scene. Like last year, it was held at the Anaheim Convention Center. The perfect spot in the heart of Orange County in Southern California to house hundreds of car builds, a huge stage at the south end for entertainment like the dance and bikini competition, plenty of vendor spots, and a huge model lounge in the middle to top it off. Speaking of model lounge, SpoCom is known to invite the most popular models that are out there so best believe you will never leave this show disappointed, so let me show you what SpoCom had in store for this year’s Ladies of SpoCom Anaheim 2014.

Lori Lin -Up Close and Personal


Name: Lori Lin

Hometown: Bakersfield, Ca.

Ethnicity: Filipino/Chinese

Birthdate: January 28

Sign: Aquarius

Height: 5′ 6″

Occupation: Full-time student

Lori is an adorable and fun loving girl. Even though Lori was born and raised in a small town, she loves the life of the city and knows how to use it to her advantage. Her modeling has quickly emerged and caused a fire storm in the scene. It began to spark last year with the help of her close friend who is a recognizable person in the industry.

Lori loves music, is a creative artist, and a down to earth person who is sending fans tripping over their own shadows. It’s no surprise that this hottie can strike a smile and a seductive stare that could paralyze anyone, even females. Aside from her seksi appearance and loving soul, Lori is a kid at heart who is goofy and a little bit silly. But don’t be fooled by her kind hearted personality and playful attitude, her goals are set on her career and she’s not going to let anyone stop her! Enough of our rabbles, let’s see what she has to say…


DaYUUM: Tell us a little about yourself.
Lori: I love life, I love to laugh, I can’t function without music. I surround myself with it as much as possible. When I hear good music, it makes me dance no matter where I am. I could be in the car stuck in traffic and I’d still be bobbing my head to the beat. I’m goofy and a bit silly but I’ve come to love and embrace all my quirks and qualities. I believe I was born with a creative mind which makes me see and perceive the world differently than most. I’m also a very passion driven person which is why I’ve always chosen a creative based career path. I love art. It’s my core. I would like to say I am a carefree being that is very caring at the same time especially to those I hold dear to my heart. I love the city life but I’ll always be a small town girl at heart. I love God, I love my family, and my friends. I see everyday as a blessing and a new adventure.


DaYUUM: How did you get into modeling?
Lori: My good friend Jofel Tolosa invited me to do a casting call last year and from there I ended up attending my first show DUB Show LA and since then I attended other shows throughout that year. It’s been an amazing adventure and I’m so glad I took that leap of faith last year and tried it out.

DaYUUM: What is your most memorable modeling job to date?
Lori: Autocon LA 2013, I was with R1 Concepts it was so hot outside but that didn’t matter to me because I just had so much fun. I loved being out there meeting new people and being amongst great company. I was also very new to the scene, and I just felt so welcomed and loved. In that moment I felt my true confidence as a model come out and I think it was one of my highest moments of last year.

DaYUUM: What do you think are the toughest challenge as a model?
Lori:  Image is essentially one of the most important parts of being a model, but I think the toughest thing is to not get caught up in the judgement of others whether it be good or bad. Staying confident no matter what people say or how a photo of you turns out is key. Personality and being a good person is always more important than looking good.



DaYUUM: What do you think is the best feature of your body?
Lori: Honestly my smile, but a little booty never hurt anybody.

DaYUUM: 3 words that best describe you and why?
Lori:  3 f words. Free spirited, Fun loving, and Friendly. I’ve come to love the person I am and I feel most myself being free and unrestrained. Although that doesn’t mean I have no boundaries it just means I love embracing my true essence as a person and living like the sky is the limit. I also love to be goofy and laugh. As much as possible I love being happy and don’t like wasting emotions on negativity unless it’s absolutely necessary. Lastly, I love to connect with others and I try to always see the good in everyone which is why i’m happy meeting new people.



DaYUUM: What is your favorite food?
Lori: I love all types but sushi has to be at the top of my list. I also have a huge sweet tooth!

DaYUUM: Do you have any talents that would surprise anyone?
Lori: I love Art. It is my first love in life and my main way of self expression. I like to paint and draw and immerse myself in pretty much anything artistic. I believe that is why I love modeling also, because it is a different form of art as well as self expression. I also love makeup, and can make people look like zombies and monsters with movie magic make up techniques.

DaYUUM: What type of music do you listen to?
Lori: Every kind, it just depends on my mood but Hip Hop always makes me wanna dance. EDM also always puts me in a good mood no matter what is happening in life.



DaYUUM: What are your hobbies?
Lori: Art, Movie watching, Sight seeing, People watching, Modeling, Traveling and Shopping.

DaYUUM: Turn ons and turn offs?
Lori: I love, love, love, somebody who can make me laugh. I love to laugh and be goofy. I want someone who makes it hard for me to stay mad at them because that’s how hard they make me laugh. Laughter to me is happiness, and you shouldn’t forget to have fun with whoever you’re with. I also love a confident man, it is such a turn on when they know they’re great. On the flip side, there is a distinct line between confidence and arrogance. Once a man is too full of themselves, and overly flamboyant about their lifestyle it is a major turn off. I also don’t like guys who smoke and drink too much. Although I like to have fun, I also I enjoy quiet nights in.

DaYUUM: What do you think is the most romantic thing a man can do for a woman?
Lori: I think the most romantic thing a man can do for a woman is simpler than it seems. When you really get to know her and know all the little things she likes and what makes her happy, I think it is the most romantic thing to do all those little things versus an over the top trip or expensive gifts.




DaYUUM: If you can go on a perfect date, what would it be?
Lori: It would start on a sunny California day, on the beach with a pier, playing arcade games, talking while taking a light stroll along the beach, laughing, then riding the ferris wheel while taking in the sights and enjoying each others company. A cup of coffee sprinkled in there somewhere would make my day 10x better!

DaYUUM: What is the craziest thing a guy did to get your attention?
Lori: Decorating my car, and house on Valentine’s day. Another is driving all the way to my hometown while I was visiting my family to see me as a surprise.

DaYUUM: Who is your celebrity crush?
Lori: James and Dave Franco. They’re talented and good looking. I think they have a unique, cool quality about them that makes them sexy.



DaYUUM: What is your dream car?
Lori: Mercedes Benz SLS AMG or Nilo’s NSX.

DaYUUM: What are the things you would never leave without?
Lori: Keys, Wallet, and Phone.

DaYUUM: If you can go on a vacation anywhere, where would it be?
Lori: Paris, it’s such a romantic and historically rich place. I would be constantly mesmerized.




DaYUUM: If you were given a power to save the world from harm, what would you do and why?
Lori: I would like to be a time traveler so I could prevent dangerous situations from occurring.

DaYUUM: Do you have any quotes that you live by?
Lori: I have two.

“Set your life on fire, and seek those who fan your flames.”- Rumi

“You either like me or you don’t. It took me twenty something years to learn how to love myself, i don’t have that kinda time to convince somebody else.” -Daniel Franzese

DaYUUM: What are your goals in the future?
Lori: Eat, Pray, Love.




DaYUUM: Shout outs and last words?
Lori: I would like to thank my family first and foremost for always loving and supporting my dreams no matter how outrageous they are. Big shoutout to all my friends who have always believed in me and had my back. You know who you are. Thank you to both my family and friends for holding my hand through every struggle, celebrating with me through every victory and loving me despite my imperfections. Thank you to Jofel Tolosa for getting me started on this wonderful journey. I can’t thank you enough for introducing me to my new passion in life. Thank you for seeing it in me even when i didn’t. To my DaYUUM family and friends, thank you for being so genuine and for accepting me as part of the crew. You are an absolute blessing to my life. So thankful to have met you all and it has been so much fun every step of the way. Can’t wait for what this year has to offer. The sky is the limit, for sure.

We want to thank Lori for giving us the time and opportunity to get her featured. She will be one of our DaYUUM Hunnies who will be joining us this year at upcoming shows, events and more shoots! We are stoked to have her as part of the DaYUUM family! Till next time and happy reading!

Emmy – Up Close and Personal


Name: Emmy Briones
Hometown: Philippines/Chicago
Ethnicity: Filipino
Birthdate: May 27
Sign: Gemini
Height: 5’3″
Measurements: 32-25-33
Occupation: Hospital biller/scheduler

“A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears.”

This beauty who considers Chicago her home, but began her modeling career in Las Vegas is starting to catch fire into the scene with her great looks and engaging personality. Emmy never had any thoughts of modeling especially into the automotive scene until she was asked by a friend to take some shots for fun. From then on, she never looked back and has been doing editorial/fashion shoots on occasion. Her appealing style, playful nature, and goofy attitude are some of the unique personalities this woman has. Not to mention, her sense of humor is always up for something fun. Just talking with her is enough to bring anyone out of the dumps as her hyper active personality is contagious. Let’s get to know more about Emmy as we ask her some questions that you guys would normally do.



DaYUUM: Tell us a little about yourself.
Emmy: I’ve always worked hard for what I wanted.  I take my career seriously and I put 100% into everything that I do.  I am very goofy and I love to enjoy my spare time with my friends and family. On my day off you can usually find me relaxing at the beach with my puppy enjoying the sun.

DaYUUM: How did you get into modeling?
Emmy: It’s funny because I never really considered myself a model.  I always thought you had to be over 6 ft tall to really make a career from modeling.  One day a friend of mine who is a photographer asked if I wanted to pose for some quick shots.  I agreed and I loved how it felt being on the other end of the camera.  It came natural to me and I never looked back.

DaYUUM:What is your most memorable modeling job to date?
Emmy: Each modeling shoot I do is unique and I always try to make the best out of my time with the photographer I am with for that day.  One of my most memorable shoots was the time I dressed up in Star Wars gear.  I was a sexy Sith and I got to play with some light sabers which made my day.  I am a huge Star Wars fan so I had a lot of fun on that day.




DaYUUM: What do you think are the pros and cons of being a model?
Emmy: I think there are challenges and rewards in any industry you are in.  I would say there are definitely a lot more pros than cons.  The photographers and people I meet and surround myself with have been wonderful.  I love to associate myself with positive people and I have been lucky enough to have that in my career.  Of course, with success comes those that try to bring you down. I just learned to focus on the good stuff and just be the best in everything I do.

DaYUUM:What do you think is the best feature on your body and why?
Emmy: I’ve always been told it’s my big, round eyes. They can be very expressive and I think it says a lot about my personality and mood. It’s a toss up between my eyes and my smile as I was told.

DaYUUM: 3 words that best describe you most?
Emmy: Ambitious, goofy, and sincere.




DaYUUM: Do you have any quotes that you live by?
Emmy: You sleep with an itchy butt, you wake up with a smelly finger! haha  jk! Life is short, make each day count!

DaYUUM: What is your favorite food?
Emmy: I can never get enough of Filipino food.  Yum! I dont eat meat but I’m always down for Thai and Italian. Oh, and Ramen and Sushi of course!

DaYUUM: Do you have any talents that would surprise anyone?
Emmy: I love to play instruments.  I am pretty proud that I can read song sheets.  I am pretty good on the piano and I can sing good as well. (plus i can fart and burp like a man lol. or i can pop one eyeball by just using my facial muscles. lol)




DaYUUM: What type of music do you listen to?
Emmy: I listen to mostly 80s, new wave, indie type of music. My top favorites are The Cure, The Smiths, Metric and The Killers.

DaYUUM: What are your hobbies?
Emmy: There is nothing more satisfying to me than putting on my pajamas and curling up to a great book.  I also love watching movies, A LOT of movies, especially if it’s Star Wars, from a comic book, anime, cartoons, and sci-fi. I love to cook and watch football too!

DaYUUM: Turn ons and turn offs?

Turn offs: Cocky guys, bad hygiene, rude behavior, disrespectful people and someone who can’t carry a conversation with me.

Turn ons: Genuinely nice people, someone that does unexpected sweet things for me, good fashion, politeness, a HUGE sense of humor and someone who’s not afraid to be silly.

DaYUUM: What do you think is the most romantic thing a man can do for a woman?
Emmy: Coming home to find dinner is made, flowers on the table, sweet background music, maybe even a candle lit bathtub session. Oh and finding the dishes washed the next day. My heart would melt!




DaYUUM: What is the craziest thing a guy did to try to get your attention?
Emmy: A man drove to Vegas nearly every weekend to win me over.

DaYUUM: Who is your celebrity crush?
Emmy: Aaron Rodgers. I had a mini breakdown when I saw him for the first time when I went to Green Bay for a game!

DaYUUM: What is your dream car?
Emmy: A Lamborghini.





DaYUUM: What are the things you would never leave without?
Emmy: My puppy, phone, curling iron and lip gloss. They said you can tell how much a woman takes care of herself by how she maintains her lips.

DaYUUM: If you can go on a vacation anywhere, where would it be and why?
Emmy: Paris. I took French lessons and I’ve always wanted to practice.  (and Amsterdam for reasons i cant say on here…jk lol)

DaYUUM: If you were a superhero, who would you be?
Emmy: Psylocke.  She is from X-Men and she is telepathic and telekinetic.  She is a former fashion model and martial artist. Thats for Marvel. I would say Wonder Woman if i have to pick from DC.

Kuya Model Expo 2

February 22nd, 2014, R1 Concepts La Habra, CA. – The place where Kuya Model Expo 2 was held this year. We were invited by our friend Abe to be a part of his yearly event and to set up a booth. This event was a great event for models to have a safe outlet to introduce or reconnect themselves with the automotive scene. The event had 2 model lounges good enough to house at least 70 models. A large stage was set up for a bikini / lingerie show hosted by model icon, Jeri Lee.

A Siren Named Serena

Photos by: Jae Alba

serena-0020For you that follow us, in the short 2 years we’ve been around you know that we like to work with fresh faces and grow with them in the industry. We’ve done pretty well in the past starting from Alisa to Marissa, Ashley, Amanda and the other DaYUUM Hunnies we’ve worked with… Last year we introduced Serena Su, from the first time we meet her at one of our meets for Guppy House, we saw something about Serena that made her stand out. She was bubbly, friendly, funny, sarcastic, and adorable with an awesome smile, but most of all, she was very down to earth that we quickly had an immediate connection with her.

We soon invited her to join us to a few of the shows, but Serana was a bit nervous being she has never really worked any car events before so we assured her that we would help her out so she can get use to the crowds. WekFest Long Beach was her first event with us, probably the biggest show of the year – haha. To our surprise however, Serena adapted well to the whole scene and receive instant recognition by a lot of people and photographers in the industry. Serena enjoys challenges, intellectual and very well groomed and fit gentlemen (that pretty much leaves us all out), Music, singing, dancing and is currently going to school to become a registered Nurse as well as a fitness guru.

We’ve watched Serena escalade fast in the industry the entire 2013 show season, from a rookie to a veteran in the show circuit. Like the other DaYUUM Hunnies before her, she too became a SEMA model for our good friends at Vortech Superchargers thanks to Neil Tjin of Tjin Edition. We have no doubt Serena will go far in this industry should she choose to stay and in whatever she puts her mind to, she will be a huge success. We hope to work with her again in 2014 and wish her nothing but the best.

We’ve put together some cool pictures throughout last year, hope you enjoy them and thanks again to Serena for repping DaYUUM. Peace and much love.

For booking info please contact Serena on Facebook at Ms. Serena Su, Instagram @Serenasuu











That Girl Chaba

Photos by: Jae Alba


chaba-3I’ve known Chaba for a few years now, we met in the show scene. She’s a very cool, creative, warm, friendly, eclectic, independent, and a well spoken young lady. She also enjoys, old skool hip hop, dancing, and yes fellas – slammed nicely fixed up import cars Ka Ching!… She happens to own a KA7, a.k.a. Acura Legend, creatively she name it Zelda after the popular Nintendo game, The Legends of Zelda. Oh by the way, did I also tell you that she’s freaki’n Hott? lol A perfect DaYUUM Hunnie wouldn’t you say?

So when I put together the new look for the DaYUUM / AirREX NSX and it was ready for a shoot, Chaba was the first person to came to mind because of her style and personality. Chaba can easily pull off any style a photographer or company is looking for from glamour, sporty, bikini, or the cute girl next door, she can easily adapt. Chaba has a very cool, chill, unique urban vibe that’s truly her own. With the help and artistic eyes of Jae Alba and Max Montenagro, we set out to capture it on camera in DTLA and I think we did just that.

I want to thank Chaba for the time and patience she had with us. We hope to work with her more in 2014, she’s not only beautiful and gracious, but a good friend. So thanks Chabz =)

For bookings, please email her at and follow her on IG @Chabawokee.

Now kickback, chill, and enjoy.














SEMA Show 2013 – The Ladies of Sema


We all know SEMA is one of the biggest gathering of everything about automotive and this year marks another impact in the automotive industry. According to the press release, this year’s presence have recorded the largest amount of companies involved and gathered under one roof tallied in its history and I’m pretty sure that goes the same way in attendance as foot traffic was out of the ordinary. As you may all know, last year, the crew decided to pick cars that made it as their personal favorites out of the show for coverage and that’s not going to change this year but we kind of feel that wasn’t enough to sooth you guys viewing pleasures. We decided to add more content out of the SEMA show to give you guys more feel of how SEMA is being done every year. As most media people that got credited to cover SEMA, 90-95% of this coverage are all new cars, new products, and everything automotive related and we all know that’s not all that is there. Of course promoting a name brand is the top priority of these companies and to do that, they usually hire the top, well known gorgeous women in the industry. To these ladies, if they ever get hired to work for SEMA, they know they’ve made a name in the industry and kind of reach the top of their career and that is what we’re trying to show you as the other content for our coverage of this year’s SEMA show. Here are the ladies of SEMA 2013.

South hall is where all the wheels and tire companies are located and if you haven’t been to SEMA, this is the place where most of the models are in attendance and that is why I decided to cover this part of the convention first to get it done with. As soon as I enter the hall, I was greeted by the girls of Falken tires booth as they are placed right by the entrance doors. First off, we have Katie Carnes as she was posing right by the 2010 Falken Porsche 997 GT3 RSR ALMS car and also handing out falken playing cards and lanyards.



Here’s Julie Galindo signing autographs and giving posters.



Here’s Miss Juliana Daniell taking pictures with fans and posing for us.



Also found a blonde hottie, Miss Rebecca Garcia taking some snaps for us.



Also spotted Miss Randyl Dawn taking pictures with fans so I joined the crowd and snap some pics as well.




Next to the Falken booth is the Cooper tires booth where I spotted Miss Saundrine Lanouette who is from Ohio. When I asked for her name, I kind of didn’t understand her so I asked for her Instagram and just followed her so its easier to remember her name and not forget for the coverage but then she told me that was a slick move to get the ladies. *blushed* (don’t be copying my moves guys haha) I swear its for coverage purposes and not like I asked for your number! haha just kidding! She’s a cool chick! Nice meeting you Saundrine! sema2013-0095-3

And that concludes day 1 of doing the south hall coverage of SEMA 2013. I’ve had 2 days left to cover the central hall and north hall and at the same time the outside venue of the convention. the next 2 days, I decided to do the central hall first as it covers the biggest space and amount of companies are mostly in here and do the rest of north hall and outside venues after since only a few models were working here, I decided to combine and do those areas last. Right when I entered the central hall, these two lovely ladies greeted me with a smile but then again I didn’t get a chance to get their names.

At first I thought these drinks had some type of alcohol in it but it was just orange and cranberry. I was about to camp out at their booth and stay there to just get the drinks but regardless, those cups that looks like big shot glasses with neon lights on it are so cool they even ran out.



Outside the Spec-D tuning booth were these two sexy ladies, Miss Amanda Shaw and Miss Elizabeth Michelle posing to take pictures with fans.

SEMA always happens every year but even then, if you didn’t get a chance to attend, there’s always us media to cover the event. Until the next time. Enjoy. Peace. – Jae

Spocom Hawaii 2013 Recap Part 2 of 2


Almost a month ago, the DaYUUM crew traveled to the islands for a mini vacation and to also participate in this year’s Spocom Hawaii, one of the biggest shows that hit the Rock. Part 2 of our coverage from Hawaii is where we cover the ladies of Spocom. We figured, a show wouldn’t be a hit without the ladies playing a big role right? An event that features appearances from the island beauties like Ashley Cee, Cherry Lei, Tia Morales, Pualei Lani, and Aussie’s Rosie Ly, to the beauties of the mainland like Ashley Vee, Jenn Q, Christine Mendoza, and the Jaro sisters just to name a few, what more can you ask for? Here are a few of the gorgeous women of Spocom Hawaii 2013 in part 2 of “Ladies of Hawaii”.





First off, our DaYUUM hunnie from Hawaii, the lovely Madoka joining us alongside with our partners at AirREX booth.






She also started a new trend on how to make selfies with a GoPro3 with the help of Scottie pushing the remote triggers. Ya’ll have seen here first, or maybe not, but who cares we haven’t seen anyone do it around the scene so we’re claiming it. lol




Next we have the sexy and alluring Miss Pualei Lani working with Kloud Kartel vapes.





Then I passed by the Race sauce booth and I spotted this cutie by the name of Kara,


I believe her name is Michelle Dang being lovely for a shot.




Michele Tamura has no problem posing for the camera and is all smiles and charming.



Then I saw the dancing queen of Hawaii, miss Cherry Lei showing her talent at the race sauce booth.



Behind our booth is Subaru of Hawaii and this gorgeous lady caught my attention. Meet Tia Morales. Two words, Simply Stunning!



Also one of the models of Subaru Hawaii is this sexy chick, Kitiya Mae.



The sexy girls of Nexxen tires walking around the show, Jordan and Kiani.



One of the main attractions of Spocom Hawaii, this gorgeous lady, Christine Mendoza causing a crowd at her booth Geisha lounge.



Along a packed Geisha lounge booth, are the two gorgeous famous sisters, Dawn Jaro and Justene Jaro.



This amazing woman, Ashley Cee always know how to please the crowd with her very sexy look.



Here are the lovely ladies at the model lounge. Starting off with the sexy accent of Aussie’s hottie Rosie Ly.



Miss Elizabeth Tran who’s also from the mainland was also in attendance.




Ashley Vee was causing lines and a crowd of photographers as usual with her sweet and approachable appeal. No wonder that made her the favorite of the show. She knows how to take care of her fans. She also won the bikini contest.



Miss Nikki Jaded, one of the island hotties was also in attendance at the model lounge.



Miss Lauren Lala always looking good posing at the model lounge as well.



The pretty Shauvon Pham who’s also from Socal was in attendance and is posing and signing pics at the model lounge.



Jenn Q. from the bay also came to play and is busy posing for the camera as well.


This trip was full of epicness. For it being the first time on the island, it was a memorable one. Even though it was only for 4 days, spending it with the crew was a rush, we spend a lot of good times together. With the crew being around and meeting new and good people, it felt like having a vacation with your family. I would’t trade it for anything else.

On behalf of our crew, we would like to thank Spocom and to all the people that we met, new or old, for having us again and creating memorable times and laughs together. I am definitely not going to miss the next one. Hope you guys enjoy and thanks for viewing!

SpoCom Anaheim 2013 – Part 2 of 2

Part 2 of SpoCom Anaheim 2013 show is where we cover the women of SpoCom. It is known by many that SpoCom is one of the top events to showcase not just about cars, but it’s also considered to be flocked by famous models in the industry. With the collaboration of HIN, having Dannie Riel on tour this year by their side as spokesperson and miss HIN 2013; special guest appearance by Tera patrick at the model lounge; the dance competition; and of course, the bikini contest, what more can you ask from a show?

The only thing that surprises me is how huge the line was just to take a picture or autograph with Dannie Riel. From the moment she arrived, till the closing moments of the show, the line was insane. I didn’t even get a chance to snap some photos of her since the security around her gave us media peeps the look of death and telling us to stand in line even if we’re flashing them our badge/wristbands. I mean what’s the point of being media if we can’t cover the main attractions of the show? Unless if only i was somewhat famous nor had someone went to go walk with me (*cough “Denny” cough*), my chances were zero to none. I know she is famous and has everyone following her around the world but the amount of the crowd on both of the main model lounge and SpoCom model lounge just amazed me on how she outnumbered them. Enough of Dannie, here are the pics.

There were more other models who were in the show and yes including Miss Dannie Riel whom I didn’t get a chance to snap pics with due to them being crowded with other photographers and fans but I just did the best I could to cover every hottie that was in attendance. Apologies to the fans of these models whom I didn’t get a chance to take pics with but maybe next time, I’ll come more prepared. All in all, this was another big turn out and huge success to SpoCom for having a top notch event. We definitely had fun and thanks for having us to be a part of a successful show. Hope you enjoy our coverage. Until next time. Peace.

DaYUUM “Trippple Threat” Angels

Not everyday a person has the opportunity to photograph a beautiful woman, let alone three at the same time. We had the chance during the summer to do just that with Edwin from Evolve Photography. We brought in Edwin because of his experience, creativity, and his workflow is flawless. It was also the a special moment where we were able to gather Marissa, Ashley, and Amanda together for a single and group session.

We used Infinite Auto Design in Huntington Beach as our studio for the day. The owner, Brian, allowed us to take over his establishment and moved props around as needed. The shop has ample amount of space for the types of shots we were looking for. Mark from Rehv Clothing kindly brought over his bike for us to use as well. For some of the shots David from Guppy Green House lent us his C63.

With these shots, I hope you guys can experience the beauty in these pictures as much as we did. Special thanks to Edwin, Mark, David of Guppy TeaHouse, and of course the DaYUUM “Trippple Threat” Angels, You can visit them at SEMA 2012 with the AirPower Group (Vortech, Paxton, Lysholm) at booth# 23063

Also, visit their pages on Facebook. Marissa Hiroko, Ashley Clark, and Amanda Kerr.

For more pictures, check out there individual Up Close and Personal features: Marissa, Ashley, and Amanda.

Here is a nice behind the scenes video by Mikey Dang of Photo MD.





Amanda Kerr – Up Close and Personal

I guess I could consider myself lucky to be in the automotive industry and for such a long time. I dig meeting new and interesting people at the shows and meets we go to. It was at one of those meets that we were invited to earlier this year at Fontana Nissan that I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Amanda Kerr for the first time. She was modeling along side our very own Marissa Hiroko, they seemed to get along so well that I thought they were long time friends, but to my surprise it was the first time they met each other and it was Amanda’s very first venture into the automotive car scene, although she has been modeling and doing fashion shows for a local bikini company for a while.

She had a fresh look which is what we are always looking for to represent DaYUUM!, she also had a great smile and very pretty eyes (oh and legs for days did I forget to mention that ? ha). She reminded me of some of the old school models of the past before anyone with a bikini and a mini skirt became an instant import model. Since her and Marissa worked so well together I asked Amanda if she would like to represent us at the Motion show in Long Beach, this was the start of a friendship and working relationship with Amanda

In the beginning, Amanda was a little quiet, but as we got to know her more and more at shows, meets, shoots, long drives and eats of course, we got to experience the humorous, talented, ambitious foodie that is Amanda Kerr. I suppose I can write and tell you all about her, but then I would just bore you. So instead I asked Amanda to have lunch with me so I can ask her some questions and she can tell it to you all in her own words, this is how it went:

DaYUUM: Hiya Amanda, though people see you with us at the shows, tell me about yourself? Your background and where you’re from?
Amanda: I was born and raised in Southern Cali and grew up mainly in Huntington Beach. I moved around a lot when I was younger but I have spent most of my life in Huntington. I am a certified makeup artist and hope to be doing makeup at the MAC counters soon, as well as help promote Bacardi and Grey Goose at the nightclubs, bars and grocery stores.

DaYUUM: You also have a very unique look, what is your nationality?
Amanda: A lot of people think that I look Persian or Armenian but I’m not. My mother is Puerto Rican and my dad is German/Scottish.

DaYUUM: Wow such an interesting mix what part of each culture do you like the most and which side are you closer to?
Amanda: I love Puerto Rican food! My favorite are platanos, which are fried bananas. I think it would be so cool to visit Germany or Scotland one day, they are both beautiful places. I would say i am closer to my moms side. My dads side of the family is a little more relaxed and my moms side is loud and crazy

DaYUUM: You mentioned that you want to go to Scotland and Germany, you like traveling and where have you gone so far?
Amanda: Yes, I want to travel a lot in the future! So far out of the US I have only been to Mexico, but I would love to go all over the world. I love learning about the different cultures and food! and Yes I am definitely a foodie and am always down to try different types of food!

DaYUUM: So what are your favorite foods to eat and cook?
Amanda: Mexican or Italian food! I like to cook chicken enchiladas and Mexican rice when I have the time. Or taquitos with homemade guacamole!

DaYUUM: I know you like to sing and dance, when did you start and what else do you like to do on your spare time?
Amanda: I started singing when I was 8 years old. I was inspired by Christina Aguilera and to this day she still inspires me as well as Lauryn hill and Aaliyah. I like to listen to a little bit of everything though, from R&B to rap to rock and Dance has always been a hobby of mine. I have been dancing and cheer leading since I was 7 and I cheered a couple years in high school. In my spare time I like to be laying out at the beach or doing makeup.

DaYUUM: Tell me your likes and dislikes ( turn ons and turn offs)?
Amanda: A turn on for me would have to be a guy that has goals in life and is motivated. Im a busy woman so you gotta keep up with me! I think confidence goes a long way too. I like guys who can make me laugh and be genuine with me I can’t stand when a guy is too into himself or doesn’t know how to take care of himself! Bad hygiene or messiness is a major turn-off.

DaYUUM: What are your ambitions and short term goals for yourself?
Amanda: I would say i am a determined person with a lot of ambitions in life. One of them is to get my degree in fashion merchandising and to possibly have my own line. And I hope to be on the cover of a magazine too! Either an auto magazine or Maxim would be nice

DaYUUM: Do you have a life philosophy?
Amanda: Yes, If you want something bad enough in life I believe that you can get it! As long as you believe in yourself enough and always stay positive no matter what

DaYUUM: and finally, any shout outs and how can companies and Industries people can get a hold of you?
Amanda: Of course a big shout out to the DaYUUM crew you guys are awesome! As well as Kerryann De La Cruz and all of my supporters! I can be reached at twitter, facebook, instagram, and email.
