I'm still stoked over the weekend's outcome

Are you ballsy enough?

We got balls! Errr.....

...okay mungkin mereka saja. Kami takde. Eheh.

Lomo-nya tunggu. Setahun tunggu baru dapat cuci satu roll filim ini. I heart UWS.

And Meet The Parents week(s). Nasib baik bukan Fockers kot.
Oh ini tiada gambar. Barulah artis kalau sorok kisah perchentaan.
Nanti you all tunggu I kat Bangsar. Ada hotspot kalau nak paparazzi artis macam I.
Nope, bukan kat Telawi. FYI KiMoira was also spotted there once.

Next week, any inquiry will be responded with "kami hanya kawan biasa".
Harap maklum.

If this is circa 1999 I would have probably become a doctor by now hehehe

It's official: I'm a stress junkie.

I whined, complained, got all worked up on crazy loads and deadlines and whaddayaknoooow....full results are out and praise to God for I had passed with flying colours. It's at least 1% doa I tell ya. If you don't ask from Him, you will not get as much as you want for He has the final yay or nay. He will give you access to everything that is required to achieve your target - sufficient brain capacity, good teachers, good friends, last-minute *ehem*, red bull, etc etc

So for the new year should I ask for a gazillion tonne of work at the office to complement the load of my school work so I can push myself towards being on the verge of a nervous breakdown and redeem the As at the end of the semester? Okay senyap sekarang dan ini malam sila tido dengan sengih sampai ke telinga. Ngeh.

In the spirit of the holidays...

Heading off to Dum's christmas do shortly. Wanted to bring a fruit cake so I went to all 3 supermarkets in Mid Valley in search for one but alas it was to no avail.

Out of desperation I bought these. OK apa, fruit cake jugak. King of fruits some more, hah!

Back to being much happier ;)

Hello long time no see!

I miss this space and I'll come back real soon with more silly things as usual. For the next few days/weeks I'm looking forward to:

1) Christmas day - something more exciting-and-nerve-wrecking than the celebration is happening I am "berdebar-debar" so wish me luck!

2) A birthday. Not mine. Surprise plans.

3) Complete exam results - anxious like hell. For the record, I now consider myself "ethical" in conducting business.

4) My sister's hari meminang. Much as I reminded mom to spare me from wedding works, I apparently look forward to sis' big day and I believe that I am gonna naturally assume that crazy wedding planner bitch role anyhow cos I can't stand messy events. Structure people, structure!

(Note to future brother-in-law: I could use a Chanel bag. I'm not fussy with my langkah bendul offering bahhahhhhh!)

5) Going back to school - hahah crazy, I know but I miss the crazies. I do not thrive in a monotonous environment.

6) Starting another crazy year at work. I repeat, I do not thrive in a monotonous environment.

And here's how I did at last weekend's Malakoff 12K Run:

(Click to enlarge, ewah.)

Geng Pelarian

Not bad for no proper training and very tiring days leading up to the race, one of which was KiMoira's awesome birthday picnic (which I, ehem, helped co-organise with Winn).

(Thank you Mr Pillsbury you saved the day)

Ah, camwhore. Biasa ini.

Okay gotta get back to work. Oh wait, lunch time - mari makan atau jalan-jalan di Mid Valley.

Confession of a Conscientious Shoppaholic

A picture speaks a thousand words. This one has nine (9) that speak out loud and you know sins have been duly committed yet again today. Rest assured that 100% proceeds from this rawkin shopping bag goes to charity. Please don't question the content.

Wish I was there!

What could be better than a surprise postcard from a good friend on vacation?

When did YOU last receive a postcard? ;)

Monday, November 22, 2010

Sorry, he is just too HAAAAAAWWWWWTTTTTT for me to ignore

Hahahhaha I don't care I'm totally giddy from this one strictly business phone call. If little silly things make us happy I believe we should just go along with the ride.

Why not? He's hot.

(Ewah rhyme pulak)

Better than bananas

Meet Ickle and Lardee, the shizniest comic ever after natalie dee.
Cuteness overload!

Always the odd one out, me.

One of my favourite places to be in is my car. Alone, when it's raining. And especially in the driveway with the engine turned off. In there I seek solace from all the madness of the world.

Monday, November 08, 2010

Maybe I should really get a new haircut.

"I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight.
But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together."

It just doesn't feel the same. In a make-believe world I am Kate Moss snorting coke.

You want an orange but an orange you don't have. Will you be content with an apple then? Maybe. You can get the nutrients all the same. An apple won't hurt your tummy like an orange would. And everyone knows an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

But alas you're still your stubborn self and you seek for an orange despite knowing how much it will physically hurt you. There will be a point in time when hospitals may deny you. You don't care for now.

Self mutilation comes in so many forms. Sad but true.

Saturday, November 06, 2010

I'm just going with the flow. Let's see where the current leads me to.

Water, in whatever packaging or branded as, is still water - a natural element composed of two hidrogen and one oxygen molecules. We get added benefit with the content of some - minerals and added nutrients - or non-fancy water at its basic form. However since water is merely water and nothing else, much effort needs to be invested so sales can be made. Gimmicky marketing stunts need to be pulled so we forget what it actually is.

I liken this analogy to men. They are basically made up of the same chromosomal composition for one or the other. When X crosses with Y, whatever additional 'X-factor' brought into the picture is merely a bonus so it can somewhat bridge them males to us the double Xs. No matter what they look like, what their jobs are, where they are from, how many certification they hold, etcetera etcetera.

Isn't it frustrating when one drinks the Evian or Smart Water ('zero calories', heh) one finds that they taste no different than the 80 sen hypermarket house brand water? So there, ever wonder why we hear the phrase 'Men, they are all the same' so often but the equivalent for women is hardly in existence?

Go on. Shoot me.

Akon adakah aku poyo macam kau?

Been eating a lot for the past few days for I had (good) company so I thought I've got my regular appetite back. Now sitting alone at the dining table I have to force myself to finish half a serving. Self pity mode dah.

I am either being affected by loneliness (ewah) or sebenarnya rindu kehidupan endah di 2nd college zaman muda mudi dulu.

Isk nasik ayam hari selasa tengahari tu memang paling sedap dalam dunia. I rindu makcik2 dewan makan juga :')

WANTED: Cute bums Chubby cheeks

My mind has gone all twisted again and I so want one of these now. Don't know why but I kinda sorta feel that I look like his real mommy in this pic. Oh Rizky if you really are my baby I need not go to gym and lift weights no more...

Maternal instincts, sometimes I just wanna scream 'screw you' at cha!

Friday, October 22, 2010

GBFF, half the time I don't care if they gossip & sorry they seek answers from you

Ever feel like you're trying hard to force yourself to do something that you have no interest in but one that everyone says is 'good for you'? (No, it's not tomorrow's accounting test. That's given. I enrolled myself in school by choice.) Just over a year ago I wouldn't have thought twice about doing what I'm committing myself to do for tomorrow and you know I have been more adventurous in the past if you have been a busybody (about the mundane and silly things I do) for a while. No need to ask around why I am so complicated. I like things to go my way or at least result in the way I expect them to. At this age it is exhausting to have to deal with changes and surprises. They say it's like getting on a bike, you never forget how to cycle. Sure, but you also never forget the times you fell off the bike and tumbled down the hill and scraped your knees till the insides showed. Yeah, I can never forget the bleeding raw flesh to this day. What if this time around it's the same? If hurt and pain can be avoided why go that way?

Yeah anyway so I'm doing this thing tomorrow. Battling my inner self which only wants to curl up in bed detached from anything exciting. Talk about the demons within.

Fight nadia fight. Haih...

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Yeah I haven't really whined much

"RM0. Dear valued customer, your BlackBerry service is now back to normal. Thank you for your patience."

Ummmm...thank you?

Sunday, October 17, 2010


Yeah insanity suddenly diluted by 50% via conference BBM with the home screen image ladies!!!!

*nangis homework terlampau banyak. Esok kena pegi FRS course and any accounting knowledge I have is whatever minimal I gained from school, of which 65% I tak fehem.*

Saturday, October 16, 2010

I have to stop talking to myself like this

So long as there's distraction. Next Saturday. No excuses. You never know when you may be ready so just go for it. It's okay, Dane is there. Dane has always been there.

November December January and she'll be back to calm you down again. With goodies from Boxing Day sale. *winks*

New handbag here I come ladidadida :D

Eat your own words if you can't move your shoulders tomorrow Nadia!

From today onwards Thursday will be my official gym day.

From today onwards Thursday will be my worry free day.

I'll try body combat again next week and hopefully my underarms aren't the only spots that sweat. Apa lah yang orang kecoh-kecoh sangat ngan body combat tu?

Lari rules. Yeah.

School is sexy

It could be the lack of sleep, lack of good nutrition or excess of sugar (think red bull, popcorn, butterscotch bread, oreos, bahulu, mcdonald's pancakes) that makes me all giddy and looking forward to today's presentation.


Monday, October 11, 2010

Don't assume that this is all about school

Go to sleep and worry about what comes next later. It will be like this for quite a bit anyhow (a lot of bits and pieces scattered everywhere even). Only those in the same boat empathise with you. Hold back that grudge, difficult as it may be, because rewards come in many forms.


Tuesday, October 05, 2010

Today I'm thankful for:

Distraction overload.

An old friend who lent me her time to hear me cry, scream & vent my heart out, dropping everything she was doing knowing I needed her right at that moment.

A concern friend who helped me put things into perspective despite the harsh truth.

Thoughtful new friends who gave me hugs when I least expected them.

The parents' good news.

...and so much more.

Today is better than yesterday, and tomorrow will be better than today.

Conscience. Empathy.

Two things we should not expect everyone to have, even amongst those closest to us.

"People aren't moved by logic. People are moved by stories and drama and hints and clues and discovery."
- Seth Godin

Sometimes I wonder if you keep reading because I'm such a drama queen. Sometimes I wonder if my dramas are turning into a soap opera. Perhaps soap opera is good. It always has a huge following.

But as per most daytime tv ratings dwindle over time because even dramatic gets stale.
I need to start auditioning for new roles.

Tiba-tiba I rasa nak pegi 'talent scouting' kat Ironman punya event

Overheard (via Google Talk):

‎​"kalau dok kerja macam ni, kalau ada husband, husband pun lari"

>>> Ewah ewah...ugut gua ka Nizam? I tau I mintak favour dengan you. Kuala Krai pun Kuala Krai la.

Hello kita semua kat sini kan mostly macam gini pehtu berani selamba kodok masuk opis lambat. Okay fine I je perangai buruk macam ni.

Tapi kan, kalau ada husband berlari lagi bagus. Senang I nak bagi arahan pegi collect race pack. Ye Nizam anda pun bleh tumpang sekaki kirim collect race pack kawan-kawan punya pasal I kasi can.

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

The night seems promising

Here's a sneak peek into my current life. I wonder who coined the term 'part-time' studies when it consumes my time rather fully. Be it at work or at places other than school, assignments are taking permanent seats at the back of my mind and occupying whatever available time I have on my hands.

I know, I know, you must be thinking million others are also going through this so I should stop whining. But I'm probably not as young as they all are okay?!

Okay menceceh je banyak. Keja kat depan tu belum siap2 jugak. Dah. Benti ngomel. Sambung homework. *baik cikgu*

Maybe a half marathon would heal the pain

McDonald's Olympic Day Run

6.95km, 1hour 10minutes
1 power bar
1 red bull
4 hours of sleep
0 dinner
Hurt, a lot of.

Have you ever tried sleeping with a broken heart?

You could try sleeping in my bed.


There's a staple food in my menu lately.

iWant MacBook je sebenarnya kot

It's official. I'm a very difficult person to work with.

The imperfect perfectionist I am. Master Yo-duhhhh.
(Get it? Yo-duhhhh. hehehe I think this is funny okay sendiri buat kelakar sendiri gelak adalah pathetic oh well)

I think I should hold a kenduri to thank my groupmates for putting up with my temper. Kesian them, dealing with a grumpy old spinster is not a walk in the park. What more with one who behaves like the Windows OS.

It's time to move on. It's time to change.

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

There is no umpire in this match (not made in heaven)

Strike two. One more and you leave the batter plate. Wait, you or me? Yeah it should be you cos I think I'm the one pitching the ball.

As always my throws don't fall in the right zone and after four tries you get a free walk. But did you ever realise that a free walk only gets you as far as first base? To return to home base you need other people to give you the leverage. Do you think you can complete the whole inning on your own? There are no other batters after you, you know. Please realise that you're a team of one, and unless you hit the ball way beyond the outfielders and do a home run there is no way you will inch any further. Again, a free walk gets you only so far.

I know that the more I practice, the more I can perfect my pitching. Maybe you should improve your techniques so you swing the bat right, or work on your timing so you hit the ball on target. If all else fails you can just bunt. As long as it works you should try.

In the meantime, I can settle with training sessions without you. At least I have friends who can play catcher. Baling bola kat pagar pun okay. Ada jugak tempat I nak mark target.

How about you? You have a plan yet?

Nizam said 'You yang pilih jalan ni'

Sometimes you just can't help it. And it's given that nobody can help you make things right.

Saturday, September 18, 2010

Your boyfriend would have hit 'like'. Naseblah ini bukan FB. Haha.

20 years ago I questioned my parents' decision to have another child (mungkinkah eksiden?). Like, hello? I had enough to deal with with one sibling why the <insert a child-friendly curse here> am I being subjected to further annoyance from another? My future wasn't looking optimistic anymore with potentials of rivalry and fights for attention and birthday presents and bloodyhell I was definitely gonna be sent packing to some boarding school in no time so they get better care at home! Tengok, hyper-critical dan suka over-analyse sejak kecil.

Tough years ahead for the little one for I was always being difficult with her. Ya dia juga spoilt brat mau manggis jam 10, 11 malam pun ayah sanggup keluar pegi main road batu 10 kat gerai2 tepi jalan tu cissss. I mau kaset OAG kena tunggu perut kena belah apendiks baru bleh tuntut okay takde kaitan sekarang dan Radhi OAG itu adalah loser with a capital L.

Safe to say that things have changed for the better and little that I expected back then that tonight she would be the one consoling my tears. Nangis lagi laju tau bila adik kecik kata 'takpe kak ingat je Tuhan tarik satu nanti lagi baik dia bagi kita lepas tu'. 'Kakak selalu stress je kat fb, kakak jgn la buat Nya nanges'. Paling takbleh tahan 'pegila kawin cepat2 duduk dgn abang F duit dia banyak kan, kakak x payah keja bestnye'. Ewah wah wah...bab duit laju je kau excited ye? Cittt. I actually find it cute because despite some maturity gained over the last few years she's still the same little tyke I grew up with - obses mau hidup kaya (sebab tu dia mau jadi dokter gigi pasang gigi emas muehehe).

Okay now I feel like rummaging the photo drawer for pics of you at pre-school age. Kau sebenarnya kiut juga masa kecik, tembam mata bulat dan suka buat muka aksi bila amik gamba. Dasar natural-born camwhore. Oh maybe I was just jealous of you when we were young cos come to think of it, it's probably why I always sulked and all grumpy in pics. Ya hodoh betul I gemok tembam dan muncung.

Dan you adalah Nyanya yang kelakar pelik sejak kecil dan menghiburkan. I lef yu little one. Be done with school quick and fix me some gold bling choppers woooooot!

Sayang weih

Sangat best rasanya bila ada orang boleh tolong review kerja sekolah, bagi additional input, recommend ideas, betulkan grammar. Best jugak bila ada problem kerja ada orang boleh dengar dan paham dan relate dengan problem kita. Something I never experienced back then. One can be very stupid in younger years. Dang.

Adik-adik sila amik pengajaran ye?

List yang bosan

  1. My feet are killing me. Another long day in heels tomorrow. Sneakers should be made office staple...sigh.
  2. Hair needs wash & blow tomorrow morning. So not feeling event-ish at the mo'.
  3. My eyebags aren't as worthy as the likes of Vuitton.
Sangat bengap sekarang sampai list pun 3 benda saja.

I don't have room for anything else in my head at the mo'. Shitezzzz.

Fact: Everyone is self-centered

Semakin lama semakin diva. Penat nak layan. I juga tak pandai berpura-pura. I just wanna shout out loud 'You're not the center of the universe and the world does not revolve around you!!!'.

I am Malay. How?

An article on TIME: Living in Malaysia's Melting Pot - http://www.time.com/time/photogallery/0,29307,2013703,00.html?

I am proud of my roots but I do know that I also can't afford to live in denial. While going through this photojournal, I thought a lot. I also felt compelled to forward it to my young, naïve classmate who thinks politics (the Malay kind if you know what I mean) makes the world go round.

Girl you should actually be ashamed of your 'fight' and please acknowledge that I pity you and your upbringing. I bet your parents deliberately forgot to teach you that politics mean CAKAP BANYAK, HABUK TARAK, KISS ASS JE LEBIH. I'm not even apologetic with my loathe towards you.

It's Ramadhan and I can't contain my pent-up frustration. That's the only disappointment I have with myself. Other than that, I'll just go strictly business. No more Miss Nice with peeps who don't know how to reciprocate. There are others who better deserve my attention.

Note: This is an exhaustion and lack of sleep entry. Imagine the amount of anger if I have all the energy.

Had I been so passionate, serious and hardworking in my undergrad years, I probably have become a doctor by now. Medical doc that is.

Heh. Seriously?

Correction. Had I not gone through all the class-skipping, procrastinating (when it came to assignments and exams and programming homework yucks) and spending more time than I should have in co-curricular projects, I would not have appreciated the decision to pursue a career in this line and eventually subjecting myself to another two (view to three) years of mental agony of this thing called graduate school.

A presentation on Tuesday, another test on Saturday and another boring post. Sorry folks, school, as we always remember it, is bo-ho-ring. I love this going back to school thing on the basis of gaining new knowledge and getting formally educated in business theories (your turn to say 'yuck!') but it's subconsciously eating me alive.


Note: The writer is having problems articulating her feelings on the eve of her first mid-semester test. She acknowledges that it is already 11pm and the clock will continue ticking. There are papers, notes and stationeries strewn everywhere in the tiny physical domain she calls 'room'. Honestly, her heart is just not in it much. The only comment she has for now is "Sod it! Kalau ingat jawab, tak ingat belasah je lah tulis apa-apa pun. I'm halfway thinking of changing my major already anyway."

Trying not to*

I sent my lecturer an email and in return she sent me a single line reply which has neither impact nor use. Can't say I'm not frustrated.

When you have decided to teach, do it whole-heartedly. If you can't be bothered to serve beyond class hours don't call yourself a teacher. This clearly shows your email address is published only to comply with bureaucratic rules.

Homework 2: Kohlberg's Stages of Moral Development

I know Kohl's.

I know Berg(dorf Goodman).

...and my morale is usually at its lowest in such environment. Swipe that card and regret later.

Bolehkah saya jawab homework begini, Cikgu? Muehehe....

Monday, July 26, 2010

Excuse my language




Sekarang kau ingat tak apa pasal masa dulu selalu ponteng sekolah? Ya, sebab kau selalu tak siap homework. Sebab kau suka tengok tv, baca buku cerita, main beskal, bergayut talipon, daripada buat homework. Simply put, tak suka buat homework. Meh.

Sekarang 3 hari, 3 malam, 1 homework 2 mukasurat selama itu amik masa. Itu pun baru draft.

Sekarang ingat tak kenapa kau tak suka bila kena buat homework dalam kumpulan? Sebab last2 kau jugak yang kena siapkan, kau jugak yang tak senang duduk bila orang lain tak bergerak walaupun kau sebenarnya tak minat buat homework.

Human beings don't evolve much apparently. Haram jadah kalau macam ni la gayanya sampai 2012 nanti. Cilakak cilakak cilakak.

What's YOUR date night like?

Dear God,

I am thankful for the times when he isn't traveling on weekends.

I am thankful for the weekends which he has the luxury to stay home and not being summoned to the office.

I am thankful for the rare occurrences of stable Internet connection in his building.

I am thankful that only Skype is blocked in that stupid country. Damn you Emiratis!

I am thankful for the first few minutes of high quality web cam stream from his end so I could see his face, live, thousands of miles away. You know how much I miss him.

I am thankful that World Cup is over so we could resume with video calls and not having to make do with non-quality voice calls.

I am thankful for his efforts to allocate those precious hours just to talk about and listen to my nonsense. All the while having to stay on the only spot in the house with good connectivity.

I am thankful for his proposal to pencil in another date tomorrow night to make up for the upcoming weeks when he will be away (again).

I am thankful that he still stands by me despite whatever that had happened.

I am thankful for his return to my life, without which I believe would not have made me the (perhaps slightly) more grateful and patient person I am today.

I am thankful for having the conscience to always thank You for all these and more.

And so I hope You will continue to listen to our prayers and ease our way through this journey towards the next 'milestone' somewhere in the very near future.

And the adrenaline still runs high...hopefully till end-2012

7 days and I still haven't decided to get those killer sexy heels. They're not even THAT expensive.

7 minutes and that's all I need to sign on the dotted line for the content of the brown box above. Good for up to 42km. Yes, full marathons.

My NEW life: Hectic. Crazy. Gosh, classes!

You would have to kill me to stop me from doing this

Siapa kata lari bukan team work? From pre-race planning ('Oi esok korang pegi mcm mana? Jom sama2 aku amik kau, kau dan kau') to post-race ('Ko kat mana? Aku baru sampai. Dia, dia dan dia dah sampai belum?'), everything is done with the 'team' in mind. Yes we may run individually but there is always another one of you somewhere near whether slightly ahead or behind you. And you subconsciously do look out for each other. When one of you scores a personal best everyone responses in awe and shares the joy. When joints hurt help is aplenty to stretch your limbs out till the pain subsides.

A few days after the race you still talk about how you did, the route and discuss the shoulds and should-nots so you do better at the next event. And yeah, other people start to stay away from you because nothing else gets talked about except running. Heh, biarkan.

So today they asked 'What are you running for?'. I would say 'everlasting friendship'. Who knew old acquaintances from high school and colleagues could one day (now) become your good friends? Every now and then someone new joins the gang. Passion brought us together. Bliss.

We may not be good enough to win the prize money but this is a far better victory :)

For the sake of my (future) dentures I have to happily let her go

Ya, sayang kat budak kecik ni sebenarnya. Sangat menghiburkan dia. Sunyi la rumah nanti. Tak ada lagi orang I mau bebel mengomel atau bising2 lagu boyband Korea dalam rumah untuk setahun ni sampai la dia balik bila dia cuti sekolah.

Nanti bila I pun cuti sekolah I pegi lawat you kat India sana nyah. I ajak Kakak KiMoira sekali. Kami boleh belagak diva kaya kat sana nanti kan? Kita makan hotel ye? Heho.

*so sad I can't send her off at the airport*

Feels surreal, no?

I itch to write. I know I have a lot to say here. I know for sure that all that have happened this week call for response(s) from my end. I know I should react. I usually do. Perhaps it's just too much that I am now just. plain. overwhelmed. (+_+)

Digital = Analog? NO WAY!

Fine, I don't use iPhone. Ergo I can't get my hands on the much flaunted about Hipstamatic. But who need Hipstamatic (or iPhone, heh) when you are from the original clan of the good ole plastic, analog cam enthusiasts.

Hidup filem!!!

Paying Homage to Carrie (and Stanley & Anthony)

See shoes.

Touch shoes.








Hati tersentuh gembira melihat newlyweds ini. Nonton World Cup di jalanan with hubs embracing wife lovingly, protecting her from the throng of crazy smelly football crowd.

Here's a special entry for you my dear Nonz & Haleem. May little you's come along real soon :)

If you just happen to land here by chance, hello! Welcome! Lotsa silly content for you to kill time with here ;)

If you stumbled upon the site, and you have made repeat visits, SUPER!

If you actually Googled your way around to check me out, then I must be THAT appealing to you. Ooooh autograph?

Pre-workout snack.

Silap beli, I thought I took Greek style. Apparently whoever made this yoghurt had excess of green ink and so they printed all labels in it regardless of product type. Harem. But taste-wise it is oh-so-sedap. And this combo is also higher in protein, lower in sugar compared to regular prepackaged flavoured 'gurt. Unfortunately I don't do much fresh fruit cos it is so leceh. Buy one kilo, eat one, the rest goes to mush. So fruit conserve is the way to go.

Try this. Better than ice cream tak tipu.

Happy Anniversary Sayang!

One year ago we nervously crossed the start line at sunrise. And we (okay, I) fret over broken promises of naners for runners. And we had long queues for water and medal collection. But we also had nicer race kit bags, stronger knees and were more morally conscious about errr....our running categories and what came with it.

Today, in the spirit of running we left the pain at home and ran honest-to-God for fun. Yes we wanted to mark this milestone and share the memory with our great-grandchildren someday (ok gila corny). But since we also look forward to still walking, not limping, 30 years down the road we opted to delay doing the Half to some other time lah.

Okay we kinda jeopardised our morale and claimed some 'items' we probably should not have. Bahahhaaaa....jangan tanya apa. Harusla bawa pulang some keepsake memento bila sudah bayar RM45 dan masuk lari.

I redeemed my conscience by letting go of my banana to a well-deserving 10k participant despite actually looking forward to devouring it in peace later (sebab dia buat muka kesian mintak 'nad u tak mau pisang tu kasi kat I la'). Orang ini tiada dalam gambar atas sebab-sebab merahsiakan identiti. Eceh.

Okay dua orang itu dalam gambar I sangat sayang. U know, I tahan airmata cross finish line pegang tangan sama mereka :')

Snow White & the 8 Dwarfs?

Apparently my 5-year-old cousin believes that she should not be left out of the picture. Haha cute.
