“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???
Malakoff 12km Run
Nothing much to say about the race. It was same as last year and a good lung bursting race for newbies. To me 12km run is like a daily training except this one on hilly course. I mean very hilly 2 loops circuit. I met many usual suspects and new people too, and one of them is my blog reader Mr. Burn. Like Burn, Azim & a few others who knew me via my blog, they said they get inspired to take-up running after reading my blog (errr... really?!) Maybe they just trying to be nice to me. Well, I'm glad to be able to help people finding their passion in running. They are slowly improving their performance and even some of them are running faster than me now. Hmmm... I gotta train harder in order to stay ahead of them.
Looking forward to my last race of 2012 on 30th December (if there is no "end of the world " on 21st December).
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…
