HIIT The Obesity Charity Run: 7 km run 6 HIIT stations

Image
Ganged-up with FY, we joined the HIIT The Obesity Charity Run at Kota Kemuning last weekend.

This charity run was organised by Anytime Fitness Malaysia for the Great Heart Charity Association (Persatuan Kasih Sejati) and the proceeds raised from the run would be 100% contribute to the association.

Honestly I wasn't so noble lah about joining this event, let the organiser think about the fund raising. I was excited when Theresa first broke the news, so I quickly asked my fitness-partner-in-crime FY to join as a team of 2 together.

Everything was as vague and clueless, up til the very last week only we were announced what kind of workout routines at every station, and OMG it was hard!!

7 km run + 6 HIIT stations to complete:

HIIT station 1: Mountain climber x 50 (left right count ONE)
HIIT station 2: Hurdle jump x 30
HIIT station 3: Explosive jack x 20
HIIT station 4: Burpee x 20
HIIT station 5: Pommel jump x 50 (in, out count ONE)
HIIT station 6: Alternate lunges jump x 30

三天两夜 霹雳太平 生日旅记

Image
生日那几天去了霹雳太平游玩。

近几年‘开发’的北部火车行程真的是太棒了!从玻璃市Arau出发到太平,虽然需要在大山脚转站,可是只用了三个小时,RM14.10。
跟宏宏小抱怨了一下 -- 我们刚在一起的我的第一个生日,住了刚新开张的酒店,在豪华酒店E&O吃自助晚餐 -- 现在,就酱!去一个小地方,住在一个整层楼共用两间浴室的旅馆!
“在一起久了就是酱的咯~你还想怎样?”
也是。。。
而且在某一次我还忘了他为我烘焙的那个生日蛋糕!记得的竟然是我妹!那一天把他气死了!虽然那个情景回想起来蛮好笑的~~~ 我们算是打平啦~~
我们住在宏宏很常住的 Sojourn Beds & Cafe,位于 Jalan Kota。

我们俩都好喜欢太平!它的食物,它的平价,它的景色。重点是吃东西很便宜!哪里还找得到三块半的鸡饭??
重点摘要:
吃喝:
1) 新板华顺烟花炒粿条
地点:Jalan Besar, Jalan Simpang, 34000 Taiping, Perak. (McD drive-thru 对面) 营业时间:拜一到拜六 7pm - 12am 售完为止

一开始宏给我看照片的时候,我还以为这个地方的特色就是那个烟花,食物不怎么样。可是,不是也,很好吃耶!Sorry uncle....

3D2N Taiping Birthday Getaway

Image
Hiiiiii youuuuuu *muaks* *muaks* *muaks*

Had a birthday getaway to Taiping, Perak, with Hon.

Took the komuter from Arau to Taiping is such a breeze - although I need to interchange at Bukit Mertajam station. It took me 3 hours and RM14.10 to get there.

I made a tad complaint about my birthday when we first started dating was staying at a new (refurbished) hotel and a dinner buffet at E&O Hotel, and now THIS - just a getaway to some town and sleeps in a hostel (we took private room lah) with shared toilets!

"Well, this happens when we are together for so long".

Yeah true also. And I sort of forgot about the birthday cake he baked during that 'extravagant' birthday (and Chen remembered hahaha!!! That moment was so funny although I broke Hon's heart :p ), so we are even lah~

We stayed at Hon's 'usual place' - Sojourn Beds & Cafe at Jalan Kota.


Both of us have a fondness for Taiping, be it the food, the price of the food, the scenery etc.

2D3N ICED Conference in Phuket

Image
Went to Phuket for a 2 days conference, a collaboration between UniMAP (my Uni) and PSU - Prince of Songkhla University, Thailand. The schools that are in-charge of this conference are Computer and MicroE, which are not the school I'm in, so I didn't know 99% of the staffs/lecturers there, except Fan Yun haha! I stick to her all the time LOL!

The conference was on Thurs & Fri. I only decided to go two weeks before the date, FY got a lil upset coz she booked flight ticket back on Fri afternoon. If only I decided earlier she would have stayed longer yikes! She is such an angel coz despite my indecisiveness, her offer of letting me crash her room still stand til the very end hehe! She is one of the committees so she gets a free room, and thanks to this/her, I spent so little on this trip!
The bus journey took 12 hours!! I sat until my butt hurts and my back sore.
The conference took place at Graceland Resort in Patong, Phuket.

Bicycle Touring: 2D1N Raya Trip KL - Bentong - Raub

Image
*Photos courtesy of Hon, Weisto, Rex and JH

10 of us going, 11 of us coming back.
No, we did not bring any 'entity' back with us. Uncle Sunny went a day earlier than us and came back with us.
Verdict: 2D1N cycling trip is too damn tiring :(

Genting Sempah - Raub:
Distance 96.7km Moving time 5h43m Average speed 16.9km/h Elevation 1874m.
Raub - Genting Sempah: Distance 69.8km Moving time 4h38m Average speed 15.1km/h Elevation 1572m.
We gathered at Genting Sempah McD R&R as the take off point. Luckily for me and Hon, we managed to find a mamak shop opened at Batu Caves to have our breakfast, the others had to make do with the only stall opened at the R&R.

It was drizzling with light rain on the departure day so we had to delay our departure time from 7am to 8am as the rain slowed down a little. The first 10-20km was mostly downhill so it would be wiser to go on a better weather.

On the way, all of us had a fair share of whining, rain-mud puddle + bad road condition = pain…

Dating on Two Wheels: 3D2N Hatyai (again...)

Image
Again again we went again...

Maybe the food, the expenses, the people, donno, both of us have some kind of fondness for Hatyai LOL.

This time around, we were all gung-ho after our first experience, no fear no nervous no nothing muahaha!

Unfortunate event still happened though LOL. I went back to my house to take my passport, when Hon reversed out from the house, we heard a loud bang from the back tyre, and there it was a nail sticking into the tyre! Since it was very early, 6 am mind you, we had to waste our time at McD while waiting for the workshop to open, which, in the case of Perlis, good luck finding any workshop that opens before 9am.

Perlis Marathon 2016 - 5 km

Image
Quick update!

Joined the 10 km category last year; this year I joined the 5 km category together-gether with Hon.

Yeah I know right? last year 10 km this year 5 km. Eeeeeeeveryone was like: "Why you terbalik/'topeng'/reverse one?? People usually 'upgrade'; YOU on the other hand..."

LOL hear me out.

Fit Malaysia Perlis 2016

Image
Few weeks back I've seen people checking my blog with keyword 'Fit Malaysia Perlis 2016', which would definitely lead them to last year's event. Despite my itchiness effort of writing a prequel post prior to this year's event, I don't have any idea what to write coz... there's just ain't anything to write about. Anyway...

Fit Malaysia (FM) Perlis 2016 was held at IKBN Kuala Perlis on 8th May 2016.


FM was held before Perlis Marathon this year, and since we were somehow registered as a member under Rainbow Jersey Team website (the main organizer of FM), we were notified through email regarding the event. Since I did online registration on the FM Run the same time I registered 5km Perlis Marathon (more about the 'downgrade' of Perlis Marathon run later), I didn't bother to check the verification/confirmation email because I more kan cheong on the Perlis Marathon registration - cause it involved payment.

This year, I didn't register for the …

2D1N Teluk Intan Foodie + Wedding Trip

Image
I admit the dual-lingual post is just to boost my reader statistics lol. Please bear with me.

Last weekend, me and Wendy (and Jayden, her 9mo son) went for a 2D1N trip to Teluk Intan, Perak for our housemate, Nad's wedding. The main agenda was the wedding, the next important mission was of course the food lah!!

My responsibility for this trip was a rather big one (or I just perasan you don't say), because we have a 9 month-old toddler along who still is recovering from his fever, and I am the main planner for this trip! Woah I haven't do such thing for as long as I can remember since I've been together with Hon coz that's his thing! I felt kinda nervous, with a kid summore. I viewed it as some sort of training for myself haha!

Since Nad's Akad Nikah or wedding solemnization was on Friday 3pm, we departed from Perlis that morning assuming we manage to catch that time.

WTF Google Map your 4 hours plus ETA cannot trust one! We planned to depart at 8am, but you kno…

两天一夜 安顺游记

Image
够力,又来到一个我想写双语游记的时候了...

上个周末去了一趟两天一夜的安顺之游,主要目的是要参加Nad(马来室友)的婚礼,次要当然是吃吃喝喝啦~~

话说这次的旅程我的责任满重大的(很多时候都是我自己perasan罢了啦),因为这次同行的是Wendy(另一位室友)母子 - 九个月大的 Jayden ,全程由我主导,而且自从跟宝贝宏在一起后每次的旅途都是他在规划,这次我要自己规划,还要考虑到小baby,算是给自己一个training啦 哈哈哈!

由于 Nad 的 Akad Nikah (伊斯兰教法上的正式合法结婚)在星期五三点举行,我们在当天早上从玻璃市出发,想说应该来得及赶上。

Google Map 是怎样算 ETA 的啊,说好的四个多小时呢??

我们比预算的八点迟了一个小时出发,结果差不多四点才到达安顺。赶到 Nad 的家时人都解散的七七八八了~~

Wendy 在 Booking.com 订了这家 TnT Novelty House 的民宿。

随便地在 Google 找到他们的blog,感觉上满不错的。

7D7N Bangkok 2015: Wang Lang Market

Image
Good thing I kept my notes and itinerary and everything in Evernote, so even though the trip was on May, I can still recall things haha. And luckily no one is keeping track so I can still talk about it although it's been almost a year ago.

As briefly mentioned in the earlier post, Hon and I went to Bangkok 1-2 days earlier than our other two friends. Hon prepared all of the itinerary for this trip (which is an extremely rare case because he is a man without planning but he has his reason), FC introduced him to use Evernote and it is like the best tool ever!!

We had the whole day to ourselves since one of our other friends would arrive later in the evening. He let me choose a location as our dating spot. On his notes, something along the line that said "famous among local for food...." immediately caught my attention, and I said "THIS ONE!! Let's go THERE!"

So, Wang Lang Market IT IS!

Note: Hon and I, we both share similar interest/taste in traveling - we ar…

ETS Experience: Arau - KL Sentral - Arau

Image
UPDATE (June 2016)
1) Latest info regarding application of KTM i-Card (info here):
Starting on 2nd May 2016, application can only be made online at the KTMB website http://www.ktmb.com.my/. Application at any KTM's ticketing counter is no longer available, not even KL Sentral. The application fee is RM35 (inclusive of GST and delivery fee). The processing of your application and the card delivery is within 14 working days from the day you did your application and the card will be delivered to you based on the address you provided.
- You can now buy tickets online at the KTMB website too with the Student i-Card, with additional RM2 fee on top of it.

2) Starting early this year, KTM has added few (I not sure how many) Padang Besar - KL Sentral trips per day (that's the route I take note coz it concerns me LOL) but those trips take longer times to arrive - 5++ hours.

Dating on Two Wheels: 3D2N bike touring to Hatyai, Thailand

Image
Side note: 1 month's effort of diet + exercise, spoiled in just one week of CNY break. Yay!! (NOT)
Hon and I, we are those 'random planning' kind of couple, so this bike touring thing happened kinda 'randomly'. 
Hon has been talking for ages about bike touring, ever since he got his Lerun mountain bike (MTB). That has been one of his dreams for many years and now that he has a bicycle (and THREE now lol), bike touring is some sort of his ultimate goal. I totally love it but too bad I don't have the time commitment at the moment.
I realized that we haven't been to trips recently and there's a window during the weekend before CNY break that I can squeeze a domestic trip, and I suggested it to Hon, and we kinda agreed either in Penang, Taiping or Ipoh for that weekend.
Then, there comes the randomness within a week before the actual event.

New Niece: Soo Zhi Xuan 苏芷萱

Image
Since I wrote about Shirlyn, it's only fair to write about my new niece Zhi Xuan too.

Haha maybe I'm the only one to think that LOL!

16th Nov 2015, eeearly morning about 6 something, I woke up, turned on my phone and I saw several WhatsApp messages from our sisters group, At 5.30am Chen said she felt the pain and going to the hospital, then I slept back.

Got excited also lah coz OMG OMG OMG the baby is coming!!!!!!!!!

Woke up again at 8am and she said she's still waiting for the doctor and to be admitted. Several messages going around like she's been admitted, delivery room still occupied, this and that.

I got up, morning bath and getting ready routine, got out of the house, had breakfast and by the time I reached lab at 10.30am, message came in said she's delivered!

OMG SO FAST!!

I've heard about people go into labor for hours and some even days, I expected the news to come at least on the noon or something, but that was FAST! Quickly demand for pictures!!
