2017 marks a prodigious 8 years since the car group “Sembakakis (38One Team)” was born. You may wonder why the name? The group started with like-minded Honda Fit/Jazz owners who were residing in the northern part of Singapore – Sembawang, which explains why they named themselves “Semba-kakis”. 38One is simply a direct translation from Chinese.

Regular meetups for coffee sessions, stripping of car bumpers, sharing of “poison” became a weekly affair for the group. The interest group developed strong friendship over time and soon the meetups were no longer only limited to car modifications. From dinner to movies, from house visits to holidays, from car parks to tracks, they have done it all.
8 years is definitely not a short time and it’s with great effort that the group stays well connected over the years despite the hectic work and family commitments. Like most car enthusiasts, changing of ride is inevitable in our COE controlled country. Therefore the group has currently mostly got different rides but their friendship stays strong.
Rides now within the group:
Leslie (Honda Vezel)
Alan (BMW 1 series Coupe)
Eric (Honda Accord)
Cheryl (BMW Z4)
Joseph (Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X)
William (Mercedes C-class)
Lenard (Honda Civic)
Frank (Honda Civic Type R)
Adrant (Kia K3)
Kevin (Honda Accord)
This Pizzas ‘n’ Cars shoot meet in collaboration with us and Carousell Motors for Team Sembakakis is certainly a highlight of their 8 years, and marks a milestone event for them. We wish them forever friends!
