KL Marathon 2008 - Race Day Updated!

I am quite disappointed. Even though it has yet to start. Recent workload has piled up and family commitment do affect my training schedule. Should not have any excuse anyway. Else, it would soon become a habit... Well, let's see how far I can go. I won't force myself until stupidly, injure myself. Mentally, I am prepared. Preparing for the worst. No regret as I did not give out.


I took 2 days off to settle my errands in Msia. Then, Qing Ming on Sat. It was tiring. I don't even remember to buy any PowerBar/Gel for this race. It just showed that I'm not taking seriously in this race. Or, not able to.

Woke up at 3am and just drank a cup of milo. Crazy, I can't find any solid bites for my stomach at home. Meeting ameba & Rwen (the one who had given me the idea to GAVE UP) at Dataran Merdeka. And, the 'Tiger' showed up too, coming for a free run. Hmm, I should have given him my bib!

From the start, Rwen had suggested to just run 27KM, the point when we wil turn back to Dataran Merdeka. That's luring, with my poor condition. Ameba kept coughing. I didn't aware that she's sick. Poor 'bride'.

I was hungry. And, it's the 1st time that I felt so sleepy while running. At 10km mark, I think the 'threesome' (Rwen, Ameba & Me) were already set the mind to stop at 27Km, with tonnes of excuses. Tiger had tried his best to wait for us but soon, missing in the bush of marathoners.

1st Failed Marathon. Not shame of it. Glad instead as being part of it.

Overwhelming Day - GE2008 on 8Mar

Stranded in Sg due to work commitment. But, what a historical day it was.

I slept until 830pm so that I could be awake later midnight for work. Then, my bro MSN me 'KAU LAT' and paste a link to me.

What a news. Penang Falls to DAP is the headlines. The following news, need no further telling. OVERWHELMING!

Back to the office, some of my colleagues also alerted me on the election news. Actually the TV channels here did bring the news LIVE! Then, came the news of BN 2/3 DENIED which was still unbelievable.

I was very much in excited mood all night long. Sharing my joy with my fellow Malaysian colleagues here. One of them, a Malaccan was so gung-ho that he went back to vote and came back to report for duty. For me, just too far for me and no bus ticket avail anymore. At least, I donated $ to the opposition. Guess that's the least I can do.

The new HOPE
5 new states changed hands. No one would buy that story the day before. A tidal turns into Tsunami indeed. Like the ultimate mandate given to PM last term, the oppositions better live up to the promise. Else, the Rakyat will show what they are capable of. Rakyat has done it once, we won't be shy to decide in the next term.

Syabas, Rakyat Malaysia.
