Celebrating The Birthday Month With A Bang

September is a special month for us.
Both Hubby and I celebrate our birthdays in September.
September is also our wedding anniversary month.
There were special celebrations that we arranged for the month. Some we did, some we didn't manage to do due to unforeseen circumstances.

But all in all September has been a good month, hazy weather notwithstanding. ^^ We were supposed to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary in Merapoh, doing The Magnificent Merapoh Trail (TMMT) together.
But fate has other plans and due to work commitments, we DNS (Did Not Start) the run. Both of us work on the day of our wedding anniversary so I decided that it would be fun to hit the treadmill and ran 16K, to mark our 16th anniversary. Hah hah
And as a compensation for not going to TMMT, I signed up to The River Jungle Marathon (RJM) instead. It was super fun, although I ran in RJM alone this year compared to last year when we both ran in RJM for our anniversary. I actually signed up for a 10K run the S…

The Journey To Run An Ultra-Marathon Along Historical Road (Rekishi Kaido) Of Kyoto

Let's see...
The plan to run on my birthday started early. I wanted to do something special for my 40th birthday and as usual, it involved me doing some running.

Actually, I wanted to do Craze Ultra last year on my birthday but Hubby said "don't even think about it". Huhuhu
I looked at a few options and came across Tango Ultramarathon which is a Silver Label race awarded by IAU (International Association of Ultrarunners) through Runner's Wellness website and after a few inquiries made on race details, race area and accommodation, I finally signed myself up to the 60K category in April this year and to run in it a day before my actual birthday.

A birthday present for myself.

Billed now as an International Friendship Race because there is no border in running.

How very true.
Seeing this at Sports Entry website was a reminder not to take the race too easily.

But I figured, with all my heat training in Putrajaya, I'd be able to handle Tango Ultra. Heat wise lah.

PRESS RELEASE : Stay On Pace With 21 Faces Of The Standard Chartered KL Marathon

Kuala Lumpur, 21 September 2015

For many Malaysian runners, the Standard Chartered KL Marathon has created many fond memories, such as running their first Marathon, or a start of a journey into distance running. For KK Yum, this year’s Standard Chartered KL Marathon will mark his 6th time running the event, and he will be part of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon pacers.
He and 20 other pacers will be tasked with ensuring runners are able to cross the finish line in their desired times. The task however will not be an easy one, as pacers will need to stay focused throughout the challenging 42.195 km course. However, KK Yum is determined to motivate runners from start to finish.

He says “I love to run and I think it is great fun for everyone. As a pacer, I want to motivate runners and hope to put some “liveliness” into them. I look forward to sharing great moments with my fellow runners on race day as a pacer!”

A Night At Palm City Villa, Kuantan

5 years ago, if you asked me to stay at a budget hotel, I would've hesitated; preferring well-established name hotels instead.
But with the mushrooming of plenty of budget yet modern hotels, staying in one has stop becoming an issue.
Especially when the focus is of the place we visited and not so much spending time in our hotel room.
We tried the Golden Roof Hotel when we visited Taiping for King of Bukit Larut in April and really love the modernity of the place. 
For only RM98 per night and right in front of some good eateries and right smack in the middle of town, it was a great choice for us.
I was looking for a hotel to stay in during the Merdeka weekend when we went to Kuantan for my Brother's wedding. I had at first chose and booked with two hotels, Cathayana and Rocana Hotel which had rates of around RM150.00 per night. But then, my Brother noticed this hotel and booked a few rooms for the family as we cannot book them online. But anyone who wants to book o…
