International Press Release: FIM ASIA SUPERMOTO CHAMPIONSHIP 2016 ROUND 2 DESCENDS ON PARIS OF EAST JAVA

Image
MALANG, INDONESIA, 29 SEPTEMBER 2016 – The drastic transition from the picturesque, breezy and cooling land down under to a stadium that has hosted thousands and thousands of cheering football fans, will crown another champion this coming 8 and 9 October 2016. The FIM Asia Supermoto Championship 2016 will transform the vicinity of the football arena into a battlefield for 23 international supermoto riders from 14 countries striving for championship points and a victory in Indonesia.
All these anticipation building up to the race can never be possible without the organiser and sponsors pouring their hearts and contribution to the race. The approximately 1.2 kilometers track in Malang will be a competition that will lurch through the riders’ emotions with its whopping one kilometer tarmac and an approximately 250 metres off-road track. The menacing track is set to put riders to the test on their balancing skills, facing seven tight hairpin turns, followed by jumps on the off-road trac…

The Cherating Holiday Makan-Makan

Image
Our 3D2N holiday gastronomy adventure started early, at lunch time and in Bangsar. We had lunch at Anuar Kari Kepala Ikan located behind TMC supermarket in Bangsar. No Kari Kepala Ikan this time but our fried chicken and sotong goreng were equally good and satisfying too! We arrived Cherating at around 4pm and spent the evening taking a dip in the sea and a stroll along the beach. We later decided to have dinner at a beach-side restaurant sandwiched between Holiday Villa and Legend Hotel.  Nothing too fancy. I had the Daging Masak Merah Fried Rice and Hubby & Son had Nasi Goreng Pattaya and also Tomyam. Nothing too shout about but not too bad either.   Breakfast was at the hotel as our room came with breakfast. Simple, standard buffet fare though Hubby was wishing they served Nasi Dagang too. But of course nice la eating breakfast while enjoying the sea view. For lunch, we decided to head out and took a drive in to Terengganu and visited Chukai Town. We were looking for Satar …

Beach Time At Holiday Villa Cherating

Image
For our birthday weekend this year, Hubby and I decided to have a nice, relaxing beachside vacation (read no running in races involved) and we managed to find a good deal at Holiday Villa Cherating.
A last minute deal where we got the Villa type room for RM191.00 per night plus breakfast included. I think we're quite lucky to get it after checking the hotel's website e few times as their rooms were all fully booked!

We somehow got this deal (and room) a few days before our trip to Cherating.
Our villa with a pool-view and the beach is just 200 metres away.
Our room came with a resident cat of our own too! A cat was relaxing on the verandah. Good thing we always have cat food handy, in the car.   The villa came with a sitting area and a nice comfy sofa.
And this twin bed. We actually requested for a king bed but oh well... Hotel fully booked mah. Aircond was good and strong so we had a nice sleep the two days we were there. It's simple but nice and comfy.  The beach at Ho…

Press Release: PUMA ANNOUNCES CARA DELEVINGNE AS THE NEW FACE OF THE ‘DO YOU’ WOMEN’S CAMPAIGN

Image
Herzogenaurach, Germany (19 th September, 2016) – Global Sports Brand PUMA launches their women’s campaign ‘DO YOU’ which aims to inspire confidence in women everywhere. As part of this campaign, PUMA announces they will be working with international model, actress, and activist Cara Delevingne. She joins PUMA’s growing list of influential female ambassadors including Rihanna, who served as the campaign’s Creative Director. “To ‘DO YOU’ is to take ownership of yourself and finding the power within that ownership — it's a very powerful statement,” says Cara. “It's about accepting who you are, no matter your faults.  ‘DO YOU’ is about finding your truth and sticking to it.
I think it's so special because it means something different for everyone. It specifically encourages people to be themselves.” Cara embodies the PUMA Woman.

My Two New adidas Ultra Boost

Image
Yeay! I got new shoes. New running shoes! I badly need to replace my old, yellow adidas energy boost (which I bought at a mere RM250.00 from JPO through a friend). This really battered yellow adidas saw me through 10K, half-marathon, full marathon, 50K and a 60K PBs for the past year. And it's time to bid farewell and find a replacement. I have been eyeing adidas' Ultra Boost range for some time as friends who used them love the shoes but the retail price is so scary ranging from RM650 - RM750 per pair! @.@ So bila see SALE word at adidas store, I didn't hesitate in getting one. A new pair of adidas Ultra Boost bought on Merdeka Day at a hefty 40% off. I would've bought another pair but this is the only one that's in my size. The rest all kena sapu already. Huhuhu But lucky me, a friend went to JPO recently and nicely updated a few friends about the shoes at the adidas store there. At less than RM250 a pair for an Ultra Boost, it's a bargain!

Press Release: THE LONG AWAITED FENTY PUMA BY RIHANNA AW16 COLLECTION ARRIVES IN STORES

Image
RIHANNA AND PUMA REMIX JAPANESE STREET CULTURE WITH A HAUNTING TWIST

NEW YORK CITY, NY (29th AUGUST, 2016) – Finally, the wait is over as Rihanna’s inaugural FENTY PUMA by Rihanna apparel, footwear and accessories collection hits stores worldwide beginning September 7th . No one can forget Rihanna’s debut of this collection last February in New York. Each look was daring, provocative and oozing with attitude and now, it’s available for the world.

Rihanna drew inspiration from contemporary Japanese street culture and tradition for her debut collection with PUMA. Mixing cultural influences with gothic overtones and exaggerated volumes and proportions, the fashion icon challenged the traditional male and female silhouettes and blurred the lines between genders that are often times too rigid for her fashion tastes.
Fans can expect key styles in the first monthly drop including the ground sweeping Mock Neck Maxi Dress and popular Rising Sun Lacing Sweatshirt and Sweatpant. The Tear Away Tr…

My Running Anniversary - A Quest To Be Healthy & Heart Healthy

Image
Today marks the 5th year I had started running. Well, the day I joined my first road race actually, which was a 10K at KLIUC Unity Run in 2011.
Truthfully, when I started running it wasn't so much about losing weight as most people would think but as an alternative to going to gym to keep fit and healthy.

I used to hate running but after I terminated my gym membership I need to find a way to be active and not turn into a couch potato so I gave running another shot.

Fast forward 5 years later and I am still running and hopefully will be for many more years to come and doing it together with my family.

An active lifestyle of course should be complimented with a balanced diet.
I admit, I love sinful food and like to indulge once in a while (or is it once too often?).
But even with a active lifestyle and being more aware about our diet, there is no guarantee that we are as healthy as we'd  like to think we are. There are a number of cases where seemingly healthy runners collapsin…
