For Sunday

Image
maybe I'll step out looking normal and like other runners.
Or maybe, I'll go out for a half-marathon run around Bukit Jalil in the Brooks Half Marathon this sunday in this : OK. That white blob will be on the back, not the front. Just too darn lazy to take a front & back photo. Haha
Zaini knows me well enough to be completely ambivalent about my choice of outfit and ambivalent enough not to show any embarassment to acknowledge that it is his wife in this outfit. *love him to bits*
Gotta wake up super early on Sunday as the run starts at 5.30am! @.@

Anyway, me and the bunny ears sure had a lot of fun together. We ran Men's Health & Shapre run 2012 together. Then we went to Taiping too. The last outing together was at MPIB Run 2013. My first run for 2013.

Why do I wear it? Because I do not want to take myself too seriously and I want to go out and run and have FUN! That's why. ^^

Fun-Filled Saturday

Image
Who would've thought I'd wake up at 4.30am on a non-race day on a weekend to go out running? With the boys waking up without my prodding too! This must be my lucky day! Jamie's eleven.
The reason we went out at such ungodly hours to go to Lake Garden : joining the GCAM 2013 - Team My in Training. Session #4.
Followed speedsters Jamie, Nick and the lovely PifflesInc doing two loops around the lake before the 7.00am session. Thank goodness they were doing a "tok kok" pace run otherwise I wouldn't have been able to follow them! huhuhu
At 7.05am, the group run started. We did a loop around the lake before tackling the deer park incline, pass the Bird Park then to the foot of planetarium hill and the mosque before heading back to the lake for another loop. Hopping like a bunny. Hahaha While waiting for Mommy, Raimie & Zaini did a loop around the lake too. Raimie needs to train because his mommy had registered him to run with her and daddy in the Pisang Relay…

School's Out

Image
for many years for me but got a bit nostalgic about it today, triggered by some discussion I had with HHBC members earlier this morning. 
It started with Anay talking about his parents, then about some bloggers asking him info on Muslim food in Japan, which lead us discussing about Halal food and then I told them a bit about my old school. Yes, the hamsap people of HHBC can and do talk about serious matters and not only about hamsap things. Right Meow and SK? ^^
Anways... school days.
I don't have a lot of photos to reminiscence about my long ago schooling days. I hate taking photos. I don't take them much these days unless with my family and when I'm running. Shocking huh? LOL Primary school. Methodist Girls School or Sekolah Kebangsaan Perempuan Methodist. I used to wear a badge with MGS wording and not like the one above. I'm OLD. Huhuhu
Nothing spectacular in primary school. I was just an average student. Rarely got top 3 placing. Only hovered around top 10. Not t…

Mommy's Day Out

Image
on most Sundays, involve this : A CNY run on Sunday, Feb 10th with Gaited Community members. We ran up all the way to the peak of PICC hill and got to enjoy this view : but not before suffering climbing up PICC with a 696 elevation gain. *pant pant* 
Raimie's Mommy managed to do a 23km that day. Running in a group can be really helpful in pushing oneself (albeit no matter how slow mommy ran) ^^
This was done last week. 26km. Alone. Raimie's daddy would usually accompany mommy at the first 5km and the last few kms during her long runs, but last Sunday he just wanted to walk instead of run so mommy had to suffer alone. 
Pushing oneself at the last few kms alone can be really hard, physically and mentally. Mommy sure appreciate group running more now. And why do mommy  been logging all these kms on her two feet lately?
and taping her feet (especially the blister prone left foot) and slathering Vaseline on her certain parts of her body just so the blisters are kept to minimum and…

Saturday Outing

Image
Just got home after spending the whole day out. *blergh*
We accompanied FIL to SK Bukit Bandaraya earlier as he's picking up the BR1M2.0 RM500.00 there. I must say, total chaos at the school. The road leading to the school (heading to Bangsar Shopping Centre) was totally jammed in the afternoon. Saw people shoving, pushing, littering, quarreling and all around bad behaviour while waiting for FIL to exchange the voucher to cash. Who cares about the elderly or the infirm? Push them to get to the front of the line! Nobody seems to take notice of the MC's plead for a more orderly queue. :( 
Then, after sending FIL home, we continued on to Putrajaya as we wanted to eat sate Kajang for dinner tonight. But before that, a bit of exercise to work up the appetite. ^^ We went for a leisurely walk at the hilly Taman Saujana Hijau in Presint 11.
Lovely view right? It was absolutely nice to have a walk or jog here. Breezy. Can't beat the view from up the hill. We walked 3+km up to the …

For Our Loved Ones

Today is a special day. For our lover, for our family, for our friends.
Yes, I know some of you will say that you don't need today to show your love to that someone special. True. But then, what's the harm about being joyous today? After all, what's wrong about celebrating love? Much better than harbouring hatred to each other, right?
Show your love today. Everyday. Don't wait till one day it's too late and all you can say is... "I should have done..."
Here's a sweet song that I do enjoy a lot...

Back To The 1990s

Image
So I was watching 2012 KBS Song Festival on TV. There's this segment where the current idol bands showcased hit songs by idol bands in the 1990s and I couldn't help but smile at how nostalgic the 1990s tunes are. Korea has Shinhwa, HOT, g.o.d., Sechs Kies, then you all know NKOTB, Backstreet Boys, NSync, the Brits with Take That, Westlife, Boyzone and Malaysia with Nico, 4U2C, Feminin... Memories... ^^
1990s. The time of my youth. The time when I first had my crush. When my heart was broken. The time when I had dreams. Big dreams. But also the time of extreme loneliness for me. A time when insecurities held supreme too. A time of outward fearlessness.
It wasn't a happy time (well, at least not until the late 1990s ^^) but I looked back at those times fondly now. I used to erase any memories of my childhood because it was a tad painful but I guess with "old" age came acceptance of life and life lessons. 
And whaddya know... there's a Korean drama got me rem…

A Cert With A Photo

Image
I received this certificate of completion for a run I did in November today in the mail. I posted about the run here.
It's rather nice to have a cert with a photo, don't you agree? Even with a bad timing like mine! huhuhu

Is it too early to wish all my Chinese bloggers a Happy Chinese New Year? ^^
Wishing you all, luck in the year of Snake and may you be happy, prosperous and in good health for the year. :)

Sometimes, It's Not All About Winning

Watch the clip. Please.
A good reminder for us to stop and think that life is not all about us alone.
