[Event] MILO Malaysia Breakfast Day 2019

MILO Malaysia Breakfast Day 2019 returns for the 7th year!  2nd year for me.  One of the most anticipated event of the year for me coz of the fun games and goodies.  The one in Sabah seems to run around August.  Next one will be in Kuching, Sarawak on the 25th August 2019.  Estimated 5000 participants this year which was held on 4th August 2019 at Padang Merdeka Kota Kinabalu.  It's a short 3km run and everyone can join in.  Fun run, non competitive, but I still see people running at 3 or 4 mins pace per km 😂

I arrived early and got in line slightly later to take photos, also said hi to Cassie from afar, am surprised she noticed me from the crowd and said "Hi Mas", pemes sis sekejap.
