Good Things Come In Small Packages

Image
See see see! Small items. In cute, eco-friendly box. From Modbox. And what a treasure trove inside. All sample sized, so that I can try before I commit and shop for regular-sized items. If anything doesn’t suit me, then I don’t lose out much. If I like, then can proceed and do online shopping at Modshop. (And ooooo can accumulate Modpoints too. I likey)
It’s a neat idea, right? Choosing beauty samples in case anything might not be to your liking.
And after realizing that you need more of the small packages, go ahead and indulge on bigger ones!
A beauty box comes with a choice of 3 product samples of my choosing at a price of RM9 and once I made my choice, it’s processed and my beauty box was sent to me within 3 working days. Busy people sure would love this option. Sample first. If like then buy regular size.
RM9 for a box of beauty samples of your choosing, and get it sent to us is rather a good deal. There is a delivery charge of RM6 for Peninsula Malaysia and RM9 for East Malaysia…

Press Release : Spreading More Than Goodness On World Milk Day

SPREADING MORE THAN GOODNESS ON WORLD MILK DAY Dutch Lady Malaysia gets Malaysian children
to Drink.Move.Be Strong through Jr. NBA programme Petaling Jaya, 14 May 2014 – In celebration of World Milk Day this year, Dutch Lady Malaysia will go beyond spreading the goodness of milk with a campaign that helps Malaysian children adopt an active and healthy lifestyle.
Aptly named Drink.Move.Be Strong, the campaign essentially encourages children to drink one glass of milk a day and spend one hour a day on outdoor exercise.
Putting the campaign into action, Dutch Lady Malaysia will present the first Jr. NBA programme in Malaysia. Under its Drink.Move.Be Strong campaign, the NBA’s international youth development programme will serve as a vehicle to promote physical activity through basketball participation.
Rahul Colaco, Managing Director of Dutch Lady Malaysia, said the Jr. NBA programme promotes not only basketball participation, sportsmanship and teamwork, but more importantly, an active lifest…

Everyday Is A Good Day

That should be how we look and tackle each day, shouldn't we? ^^
Don't have anything much to blog. Probably a blogger's block at the mo'. Hahaha
Don't worry.
I'll be writing more posts soon, in case anyone missed me. LOL

A Night Fun Run In Cyberjaya

Image
A first for me. Running the route, that is. My first time running in Cyberjaya, running in the Firefighters Cyberjaya Night Half Marathon last night.
I didn't exactly jumped to register when it first opened. The inaugural event was held by a first timer if am not mistaken and I do have this thing about just joining any race organised by any Tom, Dick & Harry. Anyway, that later changed and I registered on the last day of the early bird (or last day of registration or something...)
There was a bit of glitch come race kit collection day. While the 10K runners could collect their race kit the week before the event, the 21K runners had to collect theirs on race week. Friday or on race da itself. Something to do with the event t-shirt, I heard. Unlike other road races, the organiser provided different coloured tee for the 10K and 21K runners which is actually kinda cool for me. You can differentiate the different categories just by a glance at their t-shirt.
Some runners grouched …

Gong Cha Truck For Parched Throat!

Image
I had the luck of enjoying Gong Cha drinks served from a Gong Cha truck twice. 
One time at Mid Valley City Charity Run. Another was at the Butterfly Walk /Fundraising event. I tell you, a cup of cold Gong Cha drink is such a heaven-sent after a workout or on a hot day.
That’s why I’m imagining how nice it would be if a Gong Cha truck with a truckload of Gong Cha drinks of course; can make an appearance at one of a running event that I’ll be doing on June 15th at  Lake Garden; which is organised by a respected runner and friend. Imagine us 200 runners enjoying a cold Gong Cha after a few hours of running. Bliss…
And since this is a running event - imagine the photo opp with the drinks and the truck too! We runners love our photos! LOL
Sounds great, don’t you think?
Fingers and toes crossed! I really want to have a refreshing GC winter melon drink!
Must. Have. Icy. Cold. Drinks! LOL

A Walk In The Park

Image
Let's see... how long has it been since we made a point to walk around Taman Tasik Cempaka in Bangi? Ages!
We always come to the area near the park for our dinner or to "lepak" at McD but not so much to enjoy the park. My last blog post on our "training" at Taman Tasik Cempaka was in 2012! (Read here) Used to head there once or twice a month, run a bit and then visit the Pasar Tani nearby and buy "Nasi Ambang" for our brunch. ^^ Had lunch at McD on Sunday and enjoyed a spot of caffeine too so we decided to burn the calories consumed (well, a bit of it, anyway) with a stroll in the park. ^^ Let's start our walk! The weather was nice for a walk too. Taman Tasik Cempaka is quite nice, if not for the fact that it's rather dirty. Rubbish strewn everywhere! I mean, everywhere!

That said, the facilities are in good order. Two big playgrounds for kids to enjoy. Workout spots with most in good condition.
Son loves trying out the facilities.
Anyone rea…

Saturday Double Fun Run

Image
Saturday, Son had a school activity so rather than just lepaking around waiting for him to finish; we hanged-out at Lake Garden and did a bit of run.
The plan was to do as many loops around the lake until 12.00pm. Started a bit later than planned, at around 8.am (which of course, my normal time to start a run anyway...)
9K into the run it started to drizzle and it was a downpour soon after that. Seeing that there was no thunder and lightning, I continued on and even hubby was doing his loops in the rain. Man, it was super nice to run in the rain, I tell you. I wasn't alone too. Apart from me and hubby, there were a few guys who were running in the heavy rain. ^^
Stopped earlier than planned and managed to do a 3-hour run because Son called to say that he had finished and asked us to fetch him.

I did 21K and hubby who was more relaxed than me, did about 13K.

We headed to Putrajaya after dinner for another run. A group run organised by le Sabuns Ultra Group. It's a monthly orga…
