“A divorce no more crushed my heart, in fact I'm glad it happened and I met my new sayang who is lifting up my spirit. I swim, bike, run because she says so. I trained like a mad man being whipped from behind. I compete because I always want to beat my sayang in the race. I have heroes and one of them is my sayang. I'm an athlete, but like nobody else.”... try to be funny ehhh???
My second trip to Sydney from 20th - 25th August, after the first one 4 years ago. It was still winter and bloody freezing cold, raining nearly everyday. Went there for a job but managed to get one day off and the last 2 nights I stayed at backpackers' hostel. I love Australia, love the city, the culture, the people and weather too. Hope the next trip gonna be for good one.
The weather is sooo nice
David helped me a lot with my ANZ IPT tracker. Thanks Mate!
IDC ANZ's MD... Graeme Muller, as an avid triathlete, he invited me to join Sydney office so that we could train together. Grame, if u read this... oh yes I want to work in IDC Sydney.
AU$17.90 a nite is a good deal to stay at hostel. A nice one, worth every cent.
An amazing looking flowers can be found at Botanical Garden.

The first and last I did this race was in April 2008. I had very bad allergic after the race and MC for 2 days. That's why I never take part in the race any more after that. But this time around Fiza registered for me. Five months prior to the race day I only had one training session in the pool with 2km distance and after the bicycle accident my arms hurt badly if I do repetitive strokes. How am I going to finish this?? My target is to finish it, don't care about the timing. However, with minimal training I got minimal result, I managed to complete the race but missed the cut off in just 2-3 minutes after caught in the strong current. As expected, I was MC 2 days due to skin allergic. :(
