Lux Car

Seen, on Bintan Island's Port - the local head honcho's entourage. Everyone, Singaporeans included, is ordered to stand aside, while the chief and his wife and his family walks to their boat. Notice the license plate, BP 1. Well, it isn't Air Force One, but these chaps are big enough to command Singaporeans to stand aside while they walk past.

The only thing is, they are driving a Toyota whatever, and not a Toyota Lexus. So much for a display of royalty and power. Probably on a budget now that the economy isn't doing well?
