“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???
Genting Nite Run
Some say we're crazy, some say we're nuts... welcome to the Wacko Club! 17 of us ran up Genting Highlands last nite. It's an annual activity during Ramadan as some of us cannot train during the day due to fasting month. Did my first run and bike last year, hence I really look forward to it this year. We started from McD Genting Sempah around 2245hrs. First half 11km to Gohtong Jaya was easy peasy. Some stretch along this route was pitch black. If you don't wear reflective jacket or blinker, there's no way a driver could see you running. We regrouped for a short break at Gohtong Jaya. The second half was like hell. Total distance was only around 9km but the route was 100% uphill - some as steep as 45 degrees. Although not as painful as Marathon, the last 5km to the top - every 100m - was extremely torturous. I made it to the top around 0300 hrs. We regrouped again at Starbucks, First World Hotel before heading back to Genting Sempah for sahur.

I have been dreaming of going for a honeymoon in Bali since the day I got married... I mean since my first marriage in 1999. But I never had a chance to go until the second marriage, although it was 16 months after the actual ceremony...hehe.
It was an impromptu action, Fiza decided to go and I just follow her along. She said, let it be a birthday treat for me. The place so beautiful, we had so much fun together there and we fell in love with each other all over again.
People said Nusa Penida is like Bali before it was commercialized. Not many tourists coming here, and to get to the tourist spots you have to ride a motorbike or car very far on the treacherous long winding bumpy road. If you never ride a motorcycle, it is not advisable to ride one here, better hire a driver. You also need to be physically fit to explore these places which involved hiking through dangerous steep slopes and stairs. But the view was breathtaking and you forgot all the struggles once you reached the spots…
