[Review] ash be nimble Sports Apparel

Beverly been telling me about this for the longest time.  I have been in and out of the online store every now and then and I finally made my purchase early August 2014.  Okay maybe it got something to do with her birthday wishlist.

Thought I would get her something from there.  So I did, made my first purchase few days after reading her blog post.  Initially, I was gonna get her the Jungle Print Short but I somewhat wanted the same thing so decided to get it for myself first *chuckled.  Bad Massy bad!

So before I get into detail about the product, lets get to know them for a bit.

[Running] Sutera Harbour 7k Charity Sunset Run 2014

This post is long overdue.

I have been running this charity run since 2010 and just like any year, as soon as they are open for registration, I quickly go register, not sure why I am excited all the time.  Registration was at Marina Sutera Harbour the reception counter, you can't miss it.


Eventhough it's short distance and crowded, I don't mind running it.  Support for charity.  Registration fee for adult is RM30 and for students is RM20.  I remembered the first time I went was with my brother.  This year's shirt has a better fitting compared to the previous years. Yay!

[Review] Mi Power Bank10400mAh



The recent hooha for powerbanks, Mi Power Bank.  I know I suppose to blog this earlier like way earlier since the time I got it but I totally forgot about it till today.  But then again, I'd probably need to test it for a bit before I could actually write a review.  So here goes. 

Who would want to miss a RM36 offer for a 10400mAh powerbank? Heck!  My previous powerbank with lower capacity cost me almost RM50 and it works like crap.  In a way.  After awhile actually.  I did some research in the type of powerbank, I was actually interested in a friend's powerbank (can't remember the brand/model) but I couldn't find it.  Somehow this caught my attention and decided to give it a go.  Mind you, I occasionally doubt it cause I wasn't familiar with the brand.

Colourcoil Hasuu Tasuu 2014

Now, if you have been following my blog or you probably know me IRL (in real life), you would probably know me as a runner but all these years, I have always been a road runner.  I had that occasional hiking session with group of runners/friends in the past but never in my million years (exaggerate) would I ever register to run a race that involves trails.  Heck, for the past say 30 over years of my life, my first Mount Kinabalu climb was 2 years ago.  Even if I go Bukit Padang for hiking, I'd probably was doing that to prepare myself for Mount Kinabalu climb or just for fun.

I had this conversation with my running buddy last year, if I could remember correctly, if this did happen? (vaguely remembers) that, if, he runs/completed a full marathon, I would run trails for the first time.  I mean I had always wanted to do it but if I have doubts in my ability, I'd just drop the whole idea.  So, on 1st November of last year (2013), I registered myself to run the Hasuu Tasu 28km trail run (short for HTTR).  And of course in 2014, I was back on running full marathons, had my usual runkeeper training plan and injured while training (mentioned in earlier post).


If you ever decided to join next year, here's the info.: Sabah Adventure Challenge, here and be prepared for it! (I'm serious).

[Review] Kraftfit compression wear

I never like wearing long tights/pants (this coming from somebody who always wear long baggy pants and shirts years ago).  Ever since I started the whole exercise regime (running mostly) and lost a lot of weight, I always opt for short pants, running or casual. 

But since I venture trail running, I have gotten myself an Asics compression tights (if I remember correctly, Rizwan is making me doubting what I bought) from Spotaka, Osaka, Japan last January.  I've used this for road and trail running before but I felt like my abdomen is compressed, so tightly that it's a bit hard to breathe.

Here I was again, researching for the right compression.  Options were 2XU and Skins, but these are so expensive.  I was browsing through 2ndskin and stumbled upon this.

[Marathon] Sundown Marathon Singapore 2014 (Part 2)

It took me a week to write about part 2.  Sorry about that, I was down with sickness and was in a limbo for a week or so, I'm still in a limbo, I'm not sure if it's the strong medicine or the weather keeps making me fall asleep.  Or I might just need my tea fix?  Either one of that.

Back to where I left it off at part 1.  

Day 3 - Sundown Marathon Singapore 2014.

I actually have a vague memory to what I did in the morning, but thankfully I was referring back to my photos and could at least refresh a bit of my memory.  A sign of old age I suppose.  NO!  I refuse! I'm blaming the strong medicine!

I'm typing this post while listening to Seven Lions new EP - Worlds Apart.
