Words by Gilbert for DaYUUM.com

Big Abe has been a figure in the import industry for quite a while now and when he puts together a show, he really puts together a show. The Kuya Model Expo/R1 Concepts: Holiday Edition is the 3rd expo that he’s put together inviting many of the lovely ladies in the import modeling scene to gather and just generally have a meet & greet as well as photo op for their fans in a centralized environment. There was also a Car Show happening, some Vape related vendors coming out to showcase their latest products, even a bit of street food action with Belly Bombz Truck and Yeti Tacos on the scene feeding hungry fans and models.

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.

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

SEMA Show 2013 – The Ladies of Sema

sema2013-0192

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.

She’s a cool chick! Nice meeting you Saundrine! sema2013-0095-3

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

Mash Up! Three – Highlights

MashUP3Mash-UP! Three is our 4th collaboration with the Guppy House chain and each event we try to change it up a little. Mash-Up! Three was a celebration of Guppy House’s 8th location and our 2 year Anniversary as a website. We also felt that a charity was necessary, therefore we contacted the guys at Infinite Auto Design to put us in touch with the We Strong Foundation. We chose We Strong because of what Wayne (@waynestrong) is doing. Wayne’s battles with Leukemia gave him the urge to give back to the people that may have it worse than him. Wayne had friends and family to support him and felt that others could use the same encouragement to stay positive and be strong. We thank everyone that purchased a reserve spot and raffle tickets because it all went to a great cause.

I woke up Saturday morning to an email from Danny Nguyen to let me know highlight photos were ready to be download. We chose a dedicated photographer because with all the running around trying to get things handled, it’s rare that the team has time to capture the event. Danny has a creative eye and awesome with night shots so it was fitting to have him shoot the event. Some of you have already seen his work on JDMZipTies.com.

Events aren’t as easy as some may think, especially organized events. Permits, planning, staffing, organizing, purchasing, blah blah blehh.. All take time and money. I would say, I wished I could have planned logistics more smoothly but the early morning complaints from neighboring business didn’t sit well with me, or was part of my plan since the 3 others we planned went without a hitch and had 110% support from surrounding neighbors and the city. Chino Hills, was a bit, ummm… different – to be politically correct. Therefore, half of our planned area was cut short. I’m not 100% sure where the breakdown was, but a phone call and an email from the complex lawyer wasn’t the communication I was hoping for. I’m still perplexed on how they got my email and cellphone number. I’d rather save that type of surprise for an unclaimed bank account that had billions of dollars in it.

Overall, I felt the turn out was good, good only because I’d rather see all the cars grouped together rather than seeing a sick Evo next to a stock 4Runner, it just kills the buzz, at least for me, but what can you do when you’re dealing with public space and bitchy neighbors. Scion Evolution did a great job helping us with the logistics and keeping it real. It’s amazing how many people will name drop just to get through the ropes. Evening name dropping people that are no longer in our family.

We try to mash things up with different styles of cars and talents. Since we are passionate of street art we brought out one of our favorite graffiti crews, NASA. NASA has been around for at least 2 decades and has then moved on to other aspects of design such as apparel and footwear, so its nice to see them out to support.

MashUpThree_2013-9322Here is Just195 in action. This wall also acts as our photo backdrop.

We like a diversity of cars whether its American, old school, new school, it’s all in the appreciation of the enthusiasts individuality.

Of course, Mash-Up had to have some eye candy.

MashUpThree_2013-9400The lovely Regina Mei (@reginameii) was also in our model’s lounge and taking pictures with fans.

Our grand openings are nothing without music and talent to go with it. DJ Skitz (@deejayskitz) from Awthentik Vibes was our VJ for the night and simply killed it.

MashUpThree_2013-9496Kat Gutierrez (@ig_kat) was quite mesmerizing. She even stopped this young stallion in his tracks! I think he approves.

MashUpThree_2013-9509

MashUpThree_2013-9515Capturing the event was David, the owner of the Guppy House chain, operating his remote control drone.

In between the go-go sets, we had some raffle prizes that were donated by many awesome supporters such as Rehv Clothing, Wheel Warehouse, DC Sports, AirREX, Scosche, Vaping LA, IZZI Gadgets, and Cadence Acoustics. All proceeds from the purchase of raffle tickets went to our charity, We Strong Foundation.

MashUpThree_2013-9707The raffle was handled by Paul Dabao (@Van_DaYUUM_Paul) and Antonio Sureshot (@antoniosureshot) of Motor Mavens (@motormavens), with assistance by the lovely ladies from our models lounge, Regina Mei (@reginameii), Serena Su (@serenasuu), Ashley Clark (@ashhhhcee), and Arley Elizabeth (@arrrrlz).

MashUpThree_2013-9620Gilbert from ITsJDMYo! won some goodies from Scosche.

We tried to add a little halloween spirit and held a costume contest. The winner of each category won $100 cash money and $100 gift card to Guppy House. By the time we held the contest it was kind of late, so some of the participants didn’t want to participate anymore or had already dispersed. The contest was split up into 2 groups, scariest/original and seksiest.

MashUpThree_2013-9796The scary and original group we had Braelyn and Shawna as zombies, but ultimately Caption Hooker, Ronnie took the $100 prize.

In the seksi portion, we had Lilly Evan (@sexylillyevans) dressed as your fantasy (“whatever you want me to be” as she described), Ashley Clark as a Mermaid, and Kallita Daniel (@kallitadaniel) as Princess Leia from Star Wars.

MashUpThree_2013-9804From this pic I’m curious on what Captain Hooker and Rev Run (@dayuumnilo13) was looking at.

MashUpThree_2013-9836the winner ended up being Kallita. It was kind of funny because she wasn’t even going to compete – thinking she wasn’t going to win, until I literally dragged her on stage. Really, I did… And guess what? She took the $100 and the gift certificate!

We took a short break before the final raffle.

MashUpThree_2013-9869Here is Joey from The Chronicles‘s Q posted next to our booth… His Y33 is so clean, fresh, and DaYUUM!

MashUpThree_2013-9972For our final raffle we had Serena and Kallita to help out.

MashUpThree_2013-9902

MashUpThree_2013-9932Virgil was winning everything in sight, include Cadence sub woofers, Scosche headphones, Vaping LA juices and accessories… You name it, he has it.

MashUpThree_2013-9954Here is Kallita receiving a winning ticket.. This girl also won a boat load of stuff.

MashUpThree_2013-9983Before giving out our final raffle, we had Wayne from We Strong Foundation say a few words.

MashUpThree_2013-9996Lastly, the IZZI Orbit, AirREX gift certificate, and Scosche headphones was drawn for this lucky winner.

We had Danny stick around to take some group shots in front of the completed photo backdrop done by Just195 and Rich One of NASA Crew. I don’t like having my picture taken so it’s even more awkward when I initiate them, but I always feel it needs to be done. Especially during good times like these, you want to record events not only in your mind but visually. It helps you remember a timeline of life.
