“A divorce crushed my heart, but not my spirit. I swim, bike, run for my kids, for my health and for my soul. I trained like a man possessed. I compete because there's no greater high in the world. I have heroes but don't see myself as one. I'm an athlete, just like you.”
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.

Last time I raced in Desaru was 6 years ago. It was Uncle Chan's event but now a Singaporean event company took over it and because of that the race fee was exorbitant!! Unfortunately, I don't earn in SingDollar :(
