Hana Japanese Restaurant

I'm actually testing the blogger application on android.  While watching episode 2 of Last Resort.
Went for 20km run with Daniel and Rizwan in the morning.  It was raining in the morning since 2:30am, so I thought we might just cancel it but if that were to happen, I'll have 3 missed runs last week, instead, waited for the rain to stop at slightly before 5am. 

Slow and easy run, manage to complete it in 2 hours 30 mins while Rizwan went and complete his first 21km below 3 hours, congratulation!

Mount Kinabalu Climb 2012

Super long post.

I have always wanted to do this at least once in my life.  But I always postponed it cause I'm afraid of heights.  Like the thought of climbing/hiking/looking down at high places sends me to a weird place.  I'm scared of falling.  I don't trust anything and everything.  Had an early planned one this year, and got myself the courage to do it!  Finally!  Actually the motivation came when this friend of mine, Blek said he's joining.  HAHAHHAHA it's like if he can do it, I can, but in the end he cancelled to join International Climbathon on 13th October.  I think this plan didn't go as smooth also cause misunderstanding got me cancelled once and I got back in.  I have this 6 months training schedule for my November Penang marathon and manage to slot in some mebbe I don't know 3 times hiking before the actual climb date which was on 2nd till 4th October? I'll get to that soonish.  So I guess, u can say I'm pretty much prepared, not well prepared but prepared enough to do it.

Had some last minute shopping, yeah I guess the thought of it still freaks me out a bit but whatever I was feeling then, I'm just gonna do it no matter what.

Got my gears ready and here we go.

Day 1 - 2nd Oct 2012



Meet up point at Sacret Heart, 2pm.  Arrived early, thought I might be the earliest one there but I was wrong.  Pjal and Rendy beat me to it! Oh darn it!

Hello blog world

It's been awhile since my last update.  Yeah like last July?  I actually wanted to blog about a bunch of stuff but I'm either too busy or too tired or too lazy to do so.  So I guess, maybe, just maybe I should like blog about my last trip? Or maybe about that boardgame that I got for my birthday (in August)?  Hmm..contemplating.
For the meantime, I guess I'm just gonna drop and say Hi :)
Who is going for Penang Bridge International Marathon? I see you there!

Gears of War boardgame + Steam Summer Sale!

I'm gonna start with talking about how my day went on Sunday then about the games I recently bought from the sale and go on to the boardgame okay.

So last Sunday, after a 6 days force rest due to infection on my blister, which, btw is fine now, well in a way of putting it cause I end up cutting off the skin and manage to remove that layering dead skin cells that I had before, felt so good mang,  I don't have a bump on my foot anymore, but everytime stepping on a tiled floor felt like stepping on cold water, I finally went out for run.  Dan, who totally forgot that I was on force rest ask me what time we're starting our 21km run on Sunday.  HOI! Neways, suggested we do an easy 10km instead.  I woke up as early as 3:30am, had a good night sleep perhaps from sleeping at 9:30pm (actually slept so early cause I did an hour on the stationary bike, got so tired), stomach aching from period pain and diarrhea, good lord, got ready and off I go after 5am.

7k Sutera Harbour Sunset Charity Run

I've been contemplating to blog about my KL trip.  It was fun and not so fun for me to the extent that I did not wanna talk about it.  On another note...

It's my 3rd time joining the 7k Sutera Harbour Sunset Charity Run.  No difference between the previous years, t-shirt + registration fee of RM28 (Increased by RM3 I think).  It rained at 3:30pm, do not care, I still just gonna run.  I brought along my camera this time around, thinking that I could catch some familiar faces for some photo.  But I manage to crosspath with some and did not take photo with.  I am sad.  I though, manage to take photo with the bunch that started with me.

17th June 2012

I can't think of a proper title.

My day started pretty fine.  Set alarm at 3am.  End up waking up at 3:30am cause meeting up with Daniel for Sunday morning 15km run at 5:15am.  So, I pretty much planned my morning.  Showered, had 2 banana, I even had time to check social sites in the morning.  Kill loads of time.

My run was pretty okay but I'm frustrated that I couldn't finish it at one go.  Manage to run 12.34km today with additional 2km to finish.  Oh my right foot, why you so painful?  Got something to do with the monthly "aunty visit" is making my back pain.  Actually, I feel sore waist down.  Initially I thought it might have something to do with my last Tuesday 10km attempt.  Broke my record for 10km in almost 59 mins woot?  Yes, achievement unlocked, so proud of myself.

Look at the condition of my current shoe.  After 6 months, yes, I use 1 shoe for training and race.

Super Dungeon Explore Boardgame

Gee, where do I start?  Now before I get to talking about this boardgame, I was gonna blog about the food I had this whole week.  But then again, I'll probably gonna reserve that and blog about it like after this or next time, depending on if I'm lazy or not.

But I will definitely start with how my day went and talk about the boardgame as we go.  

Ahhh the usual Sunday morning run.  Slept early as usual the night before, I think I slept around 10pm, set alarm for 3am cause I thought I might need to eat something, I do not like to be late.  What bums me, I wake every hour like seriously, it's not that I couldn't sleep, it's just that everytime I wake up, I thought I had like at least 3 - 4 hours of sleep, I guess that did not happen.  I know this cause I check my phone/watch the moment I wake up, maybe I should keep track of my sleeping hours again with that phone app called SleepBot.  Seems to work the last time but I think I stop using it cause I got lazy of pressing it everytime I go to sleep or wake up.  Hehe.


This was around before 6am.  Dark clouds everywhere

[Boardgame] Mage Knight Boardgame


So, last 18th April 2012, my friend, Daniel has been talking about this boardgame, it was released around end of April and he finally received it on 8th May 2012.  Right after BIM.  Talking about good timing huh?  Scheduled to play the game on a Sunday which happened yesterday.  But before that, here's a link if you're wondering about this game, here.

An introduction to Mage Knight:
The Mage Knight board game puts you in control of one of four powerful Mage Knights as you explore (and conquer) a corner of the Mage Knight universe under the control of the Atlantean Empire. Build your army, fill your deck with powerful spells and actions, explore caves and dungeons, and eventually conquer powerful cities controlled by this once-great faction! In competitive scenarios, opposing players may be powerful allies, but only one will be able to claim the land as their own. In coöperative scenarios, the players win or lose as a group. Solo rules are also included.
Combining elements of RPGs, deckbuilding, and traditional board games the Mage Knight board game captures the rich history of the Mage Knight universe in a self-contained gaming experience.

A Touch of Evil: Something Wicked Boardgame

I think I better do this and get it over with.  And since that I'm in that state where I'm completely and utterly annoyed at this hour (I revisited some thoughts and I'm at a unhappy place, this is a good distraction), might as well blog about this or it won't happen.

This will be the third (3rd) time I'll be blogging about this boardgame.  The difference is, this is an expansion.  Not a completely different boardgame but the map is connected to the previous one.  I firstly gotta thank Ripz/Blek for letting us play after BIM.  Yeah I sort of threatened him to let us play.  My bad.  I didn't wanna spend my whole day resting, I'm naturally stubborn.  Thank you.

But before we get to the boardgame part, I just gotta say, I just finish watching Battleship, I love it! :)  Especially the part where they use that old ship.  Okay, enough spoilers.  Lets get to it.

More info. about this boardgame at BoardGameGeek.


Unboxing.

Borneo International Marathon 2012 - My First Marathon Experience


The Full Marathon table.  So empty.


Collected my race pack with Daniel on 3rd May at Suria Sabah Shopping Mall.  I do not like this number.  I'm very particular with my BIB No.  Yay for freebies though.  Oh yeah, S size shirt is big!  I look like I'm wearing a rugby shirt.


I bought these.


Full Marathon race route.


Cut story short.

Sew the shoulder part of this vest.


To make it look smaller somehow.

Race starts at 3am.  I had slept at 5pm the day before and was having trouble sleeping, I keep waking up for many different reasons.  Alarm set for 10pm and I'm up.  Had banana for breakfast and was out around 12:45am.  Initially I planned to leave around 12 midnight but someone told me that's too early.  It rained.  Oh gawd so cold.  I was contemplating whether I should try the calf guard or not, end up not having em cause I having train in em yet.

I though arrived at Stadium around 1am and waited for maybe half an hour okay fine, I waited in the car for roughly 45 mins before I finally got into the stadium compound cause I wanted to go to the loo.  Oh, on another note, I parked my car nearer to the entrance this time after what happened last year when I parked my car near the gate.


Meet up with Daniel after done with my "business" and he check-in his baggage.  Met Marjie and KD.  Warm up with Daniel around the track and waited till 3am.  I was a bit surprised with the number of people taking part in the Full Marathon category.  I think I got so nervous that I went to the toilet few times before the race starts lol.  There aren't a lot of people.  Say like probably around 200 more or less in total?  And most that I saw were elite runners.  Met quite a number of people that I know from the jogging track and Sunday runs.

Oh lord.  Kanchiong.  And when it was nearing 3am, mind you I was sort of trying to fix my running shorts when they announce start.  Wait, where is the gun shot/initiate.  I think both me and Daniel were a bit confused with that part.  Off we go!

Oh yeah, there were I think two (2) sub 530 pacer and one (1) sub 4 pacer.  Recognize them with the balloon (this reminds me of Penang).  We started from the stadium heading towards KK passed Jesselton Point head towards Tg. Aru roundabout and make a turn there.  Water station at every 3km but I didn't see toilet though.  Where was it?  Along the road, got supporters, ambulance and police ready.  Best cheer is along Warisan Square.  I swear they were the loudest till I ran faster lol.  But somehow volunteers this year look less than last year.  Paced with Daniel with a comfortable pace below 7 mins for 10km, note to self, stick to water instead of 100 plus at the beginning.  I think he keeps checking on me ask if I was doing the right pace cause felt like I was running faster, but actually it felt easy.  Crosspath with some familiar faces and said hi.  Slight feel of fame cause I know so many people lol.  Lotsa support from runners I don't know.  Super fun!

I'm starting to lose sight of Daniel when I slowed down at the water station and went on my own till 14km.  That's when everything starts to get screwy.  I started feeling a bit gassy.  Tried to burp it all out but somehow it gave me stitch.  So, I tried to shake it off by walking a bit and it felt better except my legs suddenly felt heavy.  Oh lord, WHY?  Tried to keep running, I think I end up run walk run walk till I crosspath with the sub 530 pacer and I went with my target speed again which is below 7 mins.  Till I passed Jesselton Point roundabout where I stopped and walk again.  Crosspath with the group again and started pacing with them at 8 mins pace.  Motivating pacer, he was so loud and it was fun.  Gave me some advice and said I shouldn't worry about my pace and just have fun.  Actually when I was pacing with them, my right foot were in so much pain already.  Managed to push through till 22km till I fall off behind again and start to run walk again.

Ran alone, this is when I crosspath with tons of my friends who's doing Half Marathon.  Keep pushing, my pace were everywhere.  Keep psyching myself out.  I keep telling myself that I can do it.  Yeah run run run till I crosspathed with the sub 530 pacer and he was checking on me.  I told him I was too tired, I think that was at 28km and he gave me energy gel Espresso flavor.  I don't take coffee but just chuck it all in.  Heck I just passed a water station so I was having the aftertaste for more km.  But it helped a bit with the energy level cause I was feeling at the state of kapootness.  Passed the 2nd checkpoint and was trying to reach the banana station at 31km I think, nearing university apartment.  Took a banana and chuck that in too, I need water!  Run walk run walk, heck I was calculating my time and thought if I could maintain below 7 mins pace I could reach less than 6 hours.  Did not happen.  Legs were dying.  Everytime I tried to do it, I went too fast and too tired too quickly.  That happened a couple of times.  It was around 8am that time and the sun starts to shine.  Oh so brightly.

After an excruciating 6 hours 6 mins of pain, I finally reached the finish line.  I think there will be some fugleh photos of me walking in pain lol.  First time is the most painful.


Group photo with CSPians :)


Thanks Jna for the photo.  And congrats for completing first 10km in 1 hour 4 mins woot!  Remember my previous blog post about her injuring her knee?   Damn you crazy!  In this photo, of all categories, we all finish our race yay~

Results are out today.  More, click here.

Bad news, my pace "hancur" tahap gaban and did not reach target which is sub 5.  Good news, I've completed my first marathon within the time limit and I'm not the last one to reach the finish line.  Yay~  Thanks Daniel for grabbing me a drink, I think when I reach, my legs were in so much pain I can't stop complaining about it lol.


Head off to McDonalds for McD breakfast.  HAHAHAHAHAHA I think not enough liquid I was chucking the food till palate burn.  My eyes went all teary instantly.  It was Penang all over again lol.  Only that time I actually cried cause I was in so much pain.  Tried to ease up a bit with ice.  Yes, sometimes Massy does the silliest things.  Walked to Warisan Square for ice cream after that.  Surprisingly, no leg pain.  The only pain I'm feeling was coming from my foot.  I think my toes were swollen too.

Planned for a boardgame session the same day around 5pm.  I didn't nap cause I was so hungry that I couldn't stop eating.  I'll blog about the A Touch of Evil boardgame expansion set next post.  Thanks Blek eventhough I had to force him mwahhaha.  Oh god, I'm so evil.


1 Full Marathon medal and 2 Half Marathon from last year

All and all it was a good an fun race.  Well organized but why so little people sign up for it?  At least the finisher shirt I can wear this time.  Not as big as last year's.  Water stations never run out of water, except the banana station, Y U NO energy gel?  And I only spotted 1 toilet after 1 Borneo.  The road starting to get filled with cars nearing 9am.  The last few that haven't arrive lmao.  Good job!

See you again next year.  Not sure if I'm gonna do another Full Marathon or Half Marathon.  We'll see.

What's this year's plan?  SCKLM - Half Marathon in June and PBIM - Full Marathon in Nov.  Hopefully I can do better this time around.  Too disappointed with my performance for my first marathon.

Till my next post.  Thank you for reading.

Yes yes, this post is a bit messy cause I'm still tired and a bit lazy.  Oh!  On another note, I think I lost 3kg from that run lol.  Gaining back a bit of the weight and start recovery run tomorrow.

Oh and if you're wondering what happen to my palate, so I woke up this morning and were in so much pain, decided to go to work and thought I could just hold it in, but pain was too great.  End up going to the doctor's for medicine.  Still in pain though.  I need painkillers!

And, remember when I said I feel no pain except on my foot?  Started feeling it last night, I'm blaming the aircond.  Woohoo! Whole body pain.  Especially my shoulders and foot.  Lets do this again, Yay!  I need new running shoe :( no money.

A Touch of Evil boardgame: Advance Mode

Contemplating, I wanted to blog about this but I got this lazy bug keeps getting to me.  Today, am gonna force myself to complete this post somehow, RAWR!

So it was a holiday last Tuesday.  I went for my run in the morning after 4 hours of sleep.  Thank god for auto body clock or I won't be able to wake up for that run at all.  Initially, set the alarm for after 3 hours sleep cause I came back from a party and slept at 1am.  God, I was seriously tired.  Like in the state of sleeping in but I thought to myself, this weekend is the race, I might as well get myself up and do it!  Manage to complete my run faster than I should, couldn't maintain my marathon pace cause I keep going faster lol.  Must maintain that pace, if not I think I'm screwed.  Finish at around nearly 8am, omg so hot!  I felt like roasted chicken.  Went to breakfast at Kedai Kopi Janggut, yummeh fish mee soup.  Went home, omg! I can't remember what I did after that till blackout around noon.  Planned a boardgame session with some friends but the place we wanted to go also no electricity.  And the roads are jammed because of the cycling event, Borneo Tour? Tour Borneo?  Most of the roads are closed and some of the traffic light are out.  Stayed home and napped near the balcony for wind.  Woke up at 2pm and by 3pm went to Kuya's house for boardgame.  Strong wind is strong.

Jna's Surprise Birthday & A Touch of Evil Boardgame


5:15 or was it 5:20am, I can't see shite capta'n, oh but I see stars!  Too bad my phone camera couldn't capture that beautiful sight

I started my day by waking up way too early for my Sunday run.  I arrived at the track early, like 15 mins early.  Saw a lot of runners started running around 5:30am.  In a big group.  Went to the toilet before my run and when I came out from the toilet, oh lord,  stray dogs, I mean usually I just couldn't be bothered by it but there were more than 5 of em and I was walking to my car, towards Jna when the pack started running towards me.  Mind you, I'm not such a dog person that I sometimes freak okay, see my house have dogs and years ago, I would get my mum or siblings to put them in cage everytime I go out, yes, till mum told me to get over it and I don't have any problem ever since.  But in this situation, oh god, I think my heart dropped man.  Seriously, my heart were beating so fast it's not funny.  And as I was saying, I stop walking halfway cause I heard em steps and I looked at Jna, I think I nearly wanna cry.  I was like thinking okay, I shouldn't run, just walk quickly towards Jna.  Surpringly, they stopped running towards me.  Relief!  Gawddamn stray dogs WARGH!

All in one update

BIM (Borneo International Marathon) 2012 is nearing.  I'm excited and anxious at the same time.  I think reason why I'm not getting enough sleep lately.  There's been ups and downs during my training, the best part is running faster and maintaining my pace, bad part is my body got so tired that it keeps giving up.  I'm frustrated sometimes.  But I guess cause I don't know how to relax?  Like seriously relax?

My smelly wet New Balance

Anyways, it's taper week and I'm back on track.  I manage to maintain my pace at 6:28 mins for 14.09km today, it could be better if it wasn't because of the rain at 6 something this morning, but am still proud of myself.  Heavy rain!  It felt like I was being pushed with that strong wind, I couldn't be too skinny now, cause last I check, I weight around 46.5kg which is bad cause I lost 3kg muscle :(  too much cardio?  It's okay.  Lets just leave the weight at that till after my full marathon.

Had Ngiu Chap for breakfast.


Notice how the photos aren't center?  I take using instagram lol

Went home, thought I would sleep but I end up staying up playing Borderlands on steam and unlocked 2 achievements.  I'd play longer but I had to go out for boardgame at 2:30pm.

I've been off facebook for 3 weeks now.  It felt good and bad at the same time.  I needed some of the updates but it's too much of a distraction.  But here's another problem I've encountered.  Instagram!  I've been on it since 4th April, I've uploaded over 200 photos, WTH is wrong with me?


Crazy or not?

I must be on a blogging spree

I'm making time to blog lately.  I think I found the reason why.  FACEBOOK! Gawddamn facebook been sucking my life all these while till I don't have time for anything.  Yeah, one of the reason for deactivating myself.  You're not gonna take my soul!  Damn YOU!

Anyways back to what I was suppose to blog about.  Boardgames yes! :)

But before that, I have no idea why I'm feeling extremely hungry, till the extent of emptiness since last Sunday.  Did I not eat enough food?  What is going on?  Maybe "nippon flagging" soon?

Update on my injuries:

  • The rib is fine, no signs of pain.  I also ran out of meds.
  • Starting to feel twitch on the right leg from last Sunday run.  Yes yes, I gotta be careful next time.  Again! 
  • Body were all sore this morning like a piano fell onto me.  But I'm feeling quite fine now.  Actually I haven't shower yet and still in my working clothes lol.  Talking about being enthusiastic.

The Sunday running encounter

Scheduled 22.53km run today.  I've improved.  So happy.  But before we get to that, lets rollback for a bit.

The night before, I slept at 10pm.  After watching episode 2 of the tv series Touch.  This series is nice, it's that dood from 24, right?  I don't really like him but somehow this one is good.  Woke up at 11pm twice because of nightmare.  Trying to recall if I watched any weird horror movies lately.  Somehow, it was a creepy weird dream.  It's like I was going to a public toilet and the shower in one were on and next thing you know somebody is choking me.  Dafuq.  I can't brain this.  I couldn't sleep after that.  My alarm was set at 2am.  So for 2 hours I was looking at the ceiling.  Sad case of being scared.  My sis went to Kundasang with her friend.  I would have gone if I don't have scheduled run today.

Finally get off from the bed around 2:05am, you know that feeling when you get extremely hungry that you feel empty inside?  That was my morning feeling.  So, I thought maybe my final medicine for the rib pain made me hungry.  Hey, I had dinner the night before and that doesn't seem to cover the whole emptiness.  Showered, ate 3 bananas and drink water.  Feel slightly better.  Did some browsing till 3:20am.  Stomach ache, went to the toilet twice.  Oh lord.

Saturday, April 07, 2012

Good Friday Thank God

I couldn't do my Thursday scheduled run due to rain.  I was pissed cause I thought I wouldn't wanna miss any this month cause it's the final month I get to train before the actual day.  No, I'm not overtraining though I injured my left rib.  Still manageable.  Nothing serious, don't worry.  I've also gone through some personal issues (truth hurts but that's how life is).

Oh did I blog about my smartphone.  Yes, it's finally back.  My data totally wipe out but they upgraded the firmware.  Gingerbread!  Faster than previous.  But it's still wonky when I charge it.  In the sense that I couldn't play with it when it's charging.  But overall it's good.  It's like a sign to start anew.  Re-installed some android apps that I used to use.  But the best apps that got me hooked would be instagram.  Since I got this installed, I've been posting photos like madness.  I must be crazy.  Been trying to refrain myself not to post everything lol.

A random plan just for us girls (Me, Jna, Sakuya and Amber).  With all the stress and issues lately, we decided to just go to one of the island, in this case, Manukan to de-stress.  Initially it was an incomplete pack but at the very minute, everything work out fine.

Woke up early in the morning, had my bag all packed, went to Sakuya's house around 7:30am.  Went to supermarket to get some supplies.  Left my car there and 3 of us carpool to Jesselton Point.

Amplang!

Yay~ Sakuya went to Tawau for an event and bought me a big pack of amplang weeeeeeeeee.


Hot pack


Funny looking hot pack.  I was asking my mum if she have this thing cause I have to place warm water on my rib three (3) times a day for 15 mins.  Mum actually have those hot/cold pack but I was too lazy to wait or do anything with it.  Initially I wanted to just use a water bottle but somehow the thought of sleeping with a water bottle doesn't seem fun.



Monday, April 02, 2012

What is up with this heat?

I mean seriously.  Why is it so hot? Every night, I sleep, I have to turn on the aircond.  Sometims I end up waking up and turning the aircond off cause it was too cold but sometimes I end up waking up again cause it was too hot that it's giving me rashes.  Gawddamnit!

On another note, remember how wait, did I even blog about me twisting the veins around near my left ribcage like 2 Saturdays ago?  Anyways, if I didn't then yeah I sort had that going on, it messed up my nerves and breathing.  I got it fixed early last week but it didn't went away.  I actually felt like running with a burden on my sides during my last run sessions.  I think it totally screwed me.  Didn't complete my last week's Saturday run.  I only manage to complete 5.6km when I should be doing 9.66km.  I know for a fact that my breathing was messed up cause when I stop, I see stars.  That did not happen for awhile.  I mean like the last time I see stars were like a year ago, maybe, when I was running around the park and went hiking after that.  Yes yes, I should have taken a breather but I kept going.  Not enough oxygen, yes yes, I know.

Free body analysis

It's been at the park for quite some time.  I mean the free body analysis banner.  I got curious.  Who knows my body fat % is off the chart right?  I always wanted to go and check but I'm either too focus with my scheduled run or I don't have friend to go with me.  Today was a different story.

After my failed run today, I think I ate something I shouldn't the pain came back after I went to fix it yesterday. It's so frustrating.  My rib felt like it's being crushed when I walk.  I'm back to no laughing and coughing.  I had to end my run before I could reach 4km.  Meet up with my friend and walk with her for 30 mins.  Mind you, that walk wasn't pleasant.  I was groaning all the way, trying to adjust my body so I won't feel it.  But I was complaining the twitch that I wanted somebody to break/kick me so it'll somehow fix it.  It's so annoying, it's driving me nuts.

Going to get it check again tomorrow.

The weight loss journey

I was browsing through some old photos in my facebook album and found this.

Le fat meh :(


New Year of 2009 with Sakuya.  Holy shit! Look at those arm.  WARGH so fat oh me.

Holy shit!  I was overweight back then.  Like over 60kg.

Back then, I was wearing baggy shirt with baggy jeans.  I think I was wearing a US or was it UK size 14.  XL all the way.  *sweat.  No self confidence.  I'm very aware of my body shape and I do not like to show my fat.  I'm not like people who can work their fats when they wear tight clothes.  I hate the way I look most of the time.

Vaguely remembers the actual date when I started jogging.  But I remember it was the time when my bro got dump by his gf (best days of my life) and we were driven to lose weight that time.  It was some time around mid of 2010.  This post shows that after 3 months, I lost 10kg, well roughly.

Sunday 25/03/2012

Here's what happen yesterday.

It's been almost a month that I am smartphoneless.  It's so hard cause I love taking photos and stuff but unable to do so.  It's killing me.  Le sad.  I think I called the service centre like a couple of times but they told me that they try to rush it so I can get it this Thursday.  Not happy.  I wanted to get a new phone but no budget for it.  I'm sort of saving money for an apartment.

Slept around midnight the night before, woke up 3am for my 5am run.  16.09km scheduled run.  My sides were still in pain but I refuse to give up.  Ran with Daniel.  Just the two (2) of us.  Everyone else couldn't make it.  Unable to maintain my pace, stomach ache and the strain near my left rib were too great, tried to pick up the pace but I end up finishing it in more than 2 hours.  That's for going too fast the day before.  I had an 8.05km run on Saturday and that went great.  I did a 6:11 mins pace for that.  *slow clapping at self.

Daniel's Surprise Birthday 2012

I always get nervous when I plan a surprise party for him.
  1. The where, when and how - cause he can smell it coming from miles away.  Especially when it comes from me.
  2. Present - there's a limitation to what I can get for him.
  3. I sometimes run out of ideas what to write on the cake.
But, with the help from my circle of friends, I manage to pull something.


This year, I initially wanted to just treat him for dinner somewhere he never been and just got him a present, and with the ongoing training for my first full marathon this year, I feel kind of tired to plan one but in the end decided to just go with it.  Discuss it with my chee mui.  Plan to do it at Seven Sea Restaurant but went to that place too often recently.  Sakuya suggested we do at Fullhouse Lifestyle Store & Cafe at Suria Sabah, besides, he haven't been there yet.  *chuckled.

Arkham Horror Boardgame

On a Wednesday night?


More info at BoardGameGeek, here.

We started a bit late, like around 7:30pm.  And this game takes few hours to finish.  But there's only 3 of us.  Le sad.


I played this game before like few years ago but my memory failed me.  Vaguely remembers everything.  To play this game, we need a big table.  1 long table not enough.  We need 2.  Unless you already have a big table then this is not necessary.

1000th post after 2 months of silence...

I'm sorry for the lack of update.  Lets just say I'm less motivated to blog these days.  I'm losing my mojo.  Or mebbe the Full Marathon training since end of last year made me so tired that everytime I got home, I got so lil time to do things.  Okay, wait, wait a minute, I have time to do other things, just when it comes to blogging, my brain gets really tired.  But I'm back now.  And I'm gonna talk about boardgame.   Oh! I realize that if I turn off my computer when I sleep, I sleep better and I wake up early and feels energetic.  DAMN YOU energy sucking mechanism!  Stop sucking my energy when I sleep.  Yes, it took me this long to realize that.  Or mebbe I refuse to believe that le computer sucks energy :)


But, before we get to that.  I wanna say thank you to Sakuya for cooking Japanese curry rice for me yesterday for lunch.  I super <3 it!  It's delicious! :)  Oh, there's little rice there coz I'm minimizing rice intake.  Heck, I don't each rice that often.  I eat pasta though :)

Luk Luk Outing

This was suppose to be a random 3 8 outing but end up to be something else.  The initial plan was to do it at Tanamera, Lintas Square but that place has been close for renovation for weeks.  Decided to move it to Lido Square for Luk Luk King!

Definitely a good turn out.


Price range from RM1, RM1.20, RM1.50 and RM2 depending on the stick color.  And four (4) dips to choose from.


It's 2012 and I've been neglecting my blog

I actually was gonna blog about my year end trip with the CSPians but I got lazy and busy all at the same time. I will probably find some time to blog about the most shortest post first and finish it with that long year end trip post.

Please bare with me.
