“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???
Newton Run 2013
It was my final event for 2013. I never miss sign up for race every year and this year I was planned to run as fast as I can in my new Sketchers Go Bionic. This shoes should make me run faster because it did change my running style. On the race day, Eena requested me to pace for her. I was a bit baffled when a fast runner (Eena is sub 4:30hr marathoner) requests me to pace, I accepted the challenge because I was expecting to be dropped by her half way. Fortunately, I'm the one who pulled her throughout the race. Either I run faster now with my new Go Bionic now or she was slacking up with her training. Anyway, we clocked 2:46hr for 25km distance. In fact it wasn't bad timing at all for a hilly course in Bandar Kinrara.
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…
