“He’s a bit colour blind,” says Grace Ong, Public Relations Manager, about her hubby Francis Tan. “He painted a pane on our wooden gate a completely different shade of brown from what we wanted.” As always, Business Director Francis, 40, has the last word. “She’s just exaggerating. It wasn’t so bad really, except that I had accidentally bought a teh tarik coloured paint instead of a ‘kopi’ shade.”
“See? That’s why he needs to have me tag along everytime we buy something,” counters Grace.
Indeed, KL-ites Francis and Grace, who have been married for almost ten years, enjoy ‘taking the mickey’ out of each other throughout the interview, as With DREAMS talks to them about their life with their Honda cars. Francis drives a CR-V while Grace enjoys getting behind the wheel of her Civic.
“I’m a really practical person and I enjoy the great outdoors,” says Francis, who goes on outstation fishing trips with his family and a few friends at least once every two or three months. He tells us that his CR-V is the perfect partner for his kind of lifestyle, which also includes mountain biking and nature walks. “I love its road handling, especially when I take the smaller country roads,” he says, adding that among others, he especially enjoys playing Morissey, Depeche Mode and The Killers over his car stereo to which he connects his iPod.
“I prefer R&B and especially those 80’s tunes. It picks me up especially when I have to put up with the daily traffic. It takes me about an hour to get home to Bandar Sri Damansara from my office in the city centre in the evenings, but the Civic makes it bearable. And I really love its look, especially from the front,” says Grace.
They are joined at the photo shoot by young Ryan, their 18-month old toddler who isn’t taking to the bright lights and strange faces around him very well. But soon, after much cajoling and being given his favourite toy car and duck by the camera crew, Ryan manages to calm down and have his photo taken.
“Our priorities went topsy-turvy after Ryan came along, but once we got used to it, it’s been a real joy,” says Grace. Most days she picks him up from his Aunty Jean’s house in her Civic which is fitted with a child seat.
“He’s just beginning to speak and I kid you not that one of his favourite words is car,” she adds.
The Tans spend most weekends at home, with Francis laying claim to being the master chef in the family. “I do a mean baked fish,” he announces. “Yes, yes. The one where it came out steamed you mean,” laughs Grace. “But I must say I do enjoy his Pandan Leaf Chicken and Cantonese noodles.” Francis beams as Grace goes on to explain that her husband is so proud of his kitchen exploits that he even takes photos of his dishes. “So it’ll be easier to place my order next time when it’s her turn in the kitchen,” quips Francis.
Though seemingly opposing characters, they do share a lot in common. “We both love to travel, especially overseas. In fact, we’re planning a trip to England with Ryan at the end of the year,” says Grace. They both also enjoy a trip to the bowling lanes every now and then. “Of course I always win easily,” says Francis. Another thing they have in common is their love for Honda vehicles. “I used to own a City previously while Francis had an Accord. I guess it comes down to trust and familiarity. And we feel that way toward Honda cars,” explains Grace.
“Of course, Honda’s advanced technology like the i-VTEC engine is comparable with the best in the world but to us it’s things like safety features that are more important now with Ryan on-board,” says Francis. “Totally agreed,” says Grace. “Ah for once! See, there’s hope for her yet,” says Francis as he playfully nudges his wife and they proceed to strike a pose for the next photo.
