Nature Walk, City Syle. Revisit. Longer Trek.

Well, not exactly trekking. Just walking. 3.5 hours of leisurely stroll; looking, touching, sniffing and even licking at interesting stuff. We walked 8km two weeks ago (blog post here) and decided to explore further this week and did 5km extra. 13km.

We started from our usual starting point, parking our car at the usual spot at Taman Canseri. From the usual route, after around 3km, we decided to check out route nearby the P15 apartments;
No car parks here unless you park at the apartment blocks nearby.  Despite close vicinity to housing area, not a single soul was seen here.
A bit of steep climb here.

Then we decided to check out a camping site. The entry point of the site makes it look like its un-enterable... (if there's such a word)
This part of the route was so uninteresting that Zaini turned around  and asked whether I want to continued on. We did...
and saw a route. TERUS!
Some of the trail. Nice. Pity it was so short.

In Search For A Waffle

The Daddy wanted to eat waffles two weeks ago, and off we went to Cheras to find one, one fine Saturday night.
Somehow, we ended up eating other stuff that night. Coney Dog for the Daddy and Mommy & the Kiddo had Supreme Dog. We had wanted to eat something else but the only menu that was shown at the counter was the SenSavers (which was ONLY applicable on weekdays 12pm-3pm) and we were there on a weekend. At night.
The on-duty manager and staff weren't that helpful with suggesting the menu either so no waffles were ordered that night. It was either the value sets that we can't order or limited ala carte options. Weird...
Actually, what happened to their combo meals? Not offering it at Damai Perdana branch, I wonder? Mommy decided to try their Cheesy Macho Nachos. Verdict? Look at it. Does it look at all appetising??? Then again, Son seems to like it just fine.
We had the other side dish that was on promotion too - the onion rings and fries. My advice. Save your $$$. Skip…

Play For Your Drinks?

Your isotonic drinks?
But Mommy said don't play with food! But this is too cool not to! Hah hah And this is not playing with food. But for food! 
100-Plus, the first isotonic launched in Malaysia 30 years ago; has this nifty interactive vending machine out at selected locations to celebrate its 30-years legacy in Malaysia.
100-Plus launched a "Win the day" campaign by putting out the first interactive vending machine in Malaysia. Isn't that cool or isn't that cool? *rubs hands in glee* Perfectly harmless looking vending machine.
Can find these on selected dates at selected venues, as listed :

The Indulgent Parents

It's the school holiday. Year-end school holiday.
Son has no structured holiday activities. No holiday camps enrolled. No motivation camps or anything of the sort.
Mommy and Daddy do try to make sure he does something productive during this school holiday. But then, Mommy and Daddy aren't that serious making him do "useful" stuff.
He gets to play with his computer a LOT, I'm ashamed to admit. Though sometimes Mommy tried to make him do other stuff. Like drawing. He likes to draw. ^^ Mommy and Daddy even allowed him to play this. 
Once a week. One time. One play. Twice, if it's a treat.
We are too darn relaxed with our child, I know. Ah well...

Dream Believe Become

Earlier this year, on April 7th to be exact; a group of women (and some lucky male pacers) ran in the first women marathon in Malaysia. In this region. You could say, we ran in a historic event. We were a part of history. The first group to run in the first Malaysia Women Marathon in 2013! Don't play play! Registration is now open for the sophomore effort of the Malaysia Women Marathon (MWM) and can be made through; details can be gotten from MWM website or its FB page too. Mark the date for MWM 2014, ladies. It's March 16th, 2014. In Shah Alam.
You have 16 weeks to train for it. Heee...
The first running clinic for MWM2014 was held last Sunday at Kedai Kopi in Dataran Kemerdekaan, Shah Alam and there were some very special guests at the clinic. The training venue was a bit secluded so some participants (and even guest!) had a bit of trouble finding the place. But we know the place to go now, for the second training clinic, right? ^^ Krazirunners "reps&q…

Putrajaya 50K, A Hot Run Under The Sun

Firstly, thank you to Suzie and her hubby Arman for allowing us (me & family) to be involved in this. We didn't do much, we were there just to kepoh-kepoh on event day. Well, actually Zaini and Raimie helped out. I just sat around for a few hours. :P
Putrajaya 50K was not a race but rather a supported and organised LSD around Putrajaya; for 50km, starting their run at 7am. And yes, there were crazy people who signed up for this! I mean crazy in a good way lah! ^^
Details of the final route can be seen at Pacat Adventure Team's blog. First order of business, registration. It's important to have all runners accounted for. Then, a briefing about the route and safety measures before the start of the run. We can't let them off before a group photo(s) while they were still fresh, can we? Photo time!  At the water stations.
This is a 50K LSD. Not just a normal run. Hence, the water stations were stocked up with not only water and 100-Plus, there were Coke, bananas, bread…
