Yummy Burgers, Juicy Fried Chicken And Great Coffee At Harley's Burgers and Roasters, Cyberjaya

Image
If you read our earlier post, we did an 18K walk around Taman Botani and Taman Wetland Putrajaya on Saturday.

And what would be perfect for us after the long walk? Enjoying some nice makan.
We decided to try out Harley's Burgers & Roasters in Cyberjaya and head there for dinner, feeling ready to eat a whole cow even. Hehe

Harley's Burgers and Roasters is an American fast food concept restaurant serving delicious, tasty burgers that can be customised, fried chicken and creamy milk shakes. Their burgers are grilled-to-order concept which ensures that it is always fresh and juicy.

Inspired by “In-N-Out Burger” of California, Harley's serve delicious burgers that are 100% beef & Crispy Fried Chicken. Their food are made fresh daily from premium ingredients without any food additives or preservatives. Even their sauces are made in-house.

Checking Out The Eco Trail Putrajaya Route

Image
Hubby and I registered to run in the 30K at Eco Trail Putrajaya on Oct 26, 2019.

The run will be held in conjunction with the 80th Anniversary celebration of Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) in championing nature conservation and wildlife protection through research and advocacy in Malaysia.

There are 5 distance categories offered - 80K, 50K, 30K, 15K and 5K.

Putrajaya route is not a strange route for us as we used to train here and even did long walks with the family, like the stroll we did at Taman Wetland ages ago (blog post: A Stroll In Taman Wetland or Sunday Outing with Hubby or the 50K LSD that we did in memory of a friend who had passed away which we called "Darussalam Fun 50").

Admittedly, we haven't done much running or walking around Putrajaya these past few years so we decided it would be nice to re-visit the route and also check out part of the Eco Trail Putrajaya race route before race day.

And we decided to make a video of it and share it on our Facebook pa…

My First 10K At KL Standard Chartered Marathon

Image
Yup, I finally decided to enter a 10K this year at KL Standard Chartered Marathon (KLSCM). And for the first time since joining KLSCM (or what used to be called SCKLM - ask the mayor about this name change lah) from the year 2012 , I started my run in front of Sogo which was where all 10K categories were flagged-off.
For 10K, there were the Speed category which was flagged-off at 6:45 am, Cruise category (flag-off at 7:15 am), Leisure category (flag-off at 7:45 am). I wasn't expecting to see any familiar faces at the 10K as most of my friends did either the half marathon or full marathon.
I was quite surprised to see the ever jovial Mohan Marathon also doing the 10K and we entered the pen together.
Thanks for this photo, Mohan! 2019 is my 8th participation in KLSCM but my first ever 10K.
This year I also did the Run for A Reason, which is a charity programme for individuals to fund raise for their chosen charity partner.
I chose The National Cancer Society of Malaysia last year, …
