James: “I know that Tunku is a car lover, particularly fond of sports cars. When did you buy your    first sport car?”

Tunku Laitham : “Like the normal young person, I have always been very keen on sports car. After my graduation from university, I was already on the hunt for a sports car at a budget of course, having just started working. I obtained my very first sports car in 1979. This was a very proud acquisition which I kept for a good six years.”

James : “How many types of sports cars have you driven before?”

Tunku Laitham : “I have always had some form of sports vehicle all these years and if it is not really a ‘true’ sports car, it will be a car that has been upgraded with modifications to the engine or at a minimum a vehicle that have been equipped with some sport body kit.”

Tunku Laitham added : “Till today I have owned quite a few Sports cars from a fairly wide range of makes from both European and Japanese manufacturers.”

He said : “However it is only in the early 2000 whereby I went into the Supercar league with the purchase of a Ferrari 360 Spider, very much like that as shown in one of James Phua’s painting (The stallion and red Ferrari) .This, like a lot of males, was a dream from an early age and the car was loved for quite a while.”

James : How do like your latest baby, Lamborghini?

Tunku Laitham : “2. Four years ago, I purchased a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560. This is indeed a beautiful car, in and out, and a very easy car to drive. I still drive it with pride and joy and the roar of the engine during acceleration is a sound to behold. Rated at 560 horse power, I know that there is a lot of reserve power at any time. Unfortunately there is no satisfying a person, as my eyes are roving again for other sports vehicle. Perhaps the next one may be a more sedate sports car, as age is catching up, but you can be rest assured that the horse power will be no less.”

Tunku Laitham is also an art lover. He likes paintings that generate power of motion. During the interview, I showed him one of my latest artwork, ‘The Stallion with Red Ferrari’. He was very impressed by the horse painting of mine. He commented my horse painting is very alive and energetic, just like my Lamborghini’s horse power.

Tunku Laitham said: “I like the way Phua expressed the speed of racehorse, especially his “Secretariat” series-The Stride of Century.”

He added: “No doubt, in this artwork, James has proved that he reserved to be one of the greatest horse painters in the world. I was impressed by his excellent skills in portraying the muscles of horses. Just with few master strokes, the picture of the horse has become so lively. Look at the windy mane of the galloping horse! It just reminded me of the great feeling when I was driving my Lamborghini………….a feeling of freedom and a fulfillment of success.”

He pointed out : “James Phua did a great job on horse painting, the horse under his brush, revealing the freehand brushwork in traditional Chinese painting and rigorous style in western arts, but also showing the strength, power and spirit to audience, that is why the horse paintings from Phua is well popular in the world of art.”
