And when you googled for " Crocs and Escalators" there are many more reports out there just in case you are nor aware of it. I cant believe all these is happening but the story are indeed genuine!!!!

Dog Catching Competition

As you have read in my recent writeup on the above, as well as a site that you can sign up for a petition against such barbaric act.

Now to make it more interesting since Majlis Perbandaran Selayang had started it, there was a suggestion by some readers on this article which are as follows:

Haza suggested:


I suggested:

Jamie suggested:

Someone in The Star suggested:
~ does the municipals have the guts to do it!!!

Malaysia Government:

Does the first two options make a lot of sense to ensure safety and harmony in the country vs those barbaric act of MPS. Cast you feedbacks to me.

If he can run, why cant we....

A 72 year old veteran, succeeded in his application to run in this year ING New York City Marathon. His weekly mileage to train for this race is 80k per week. He definitely doesnt looks like a 72 year old man. He is so agile and his movement is like a young man. His heart, definitely younger, bigger and stronger than anyone else. So if he can run, why not we !!!!!!

Cinya SALUTE him, all the best to you in the coming ING NYC Marathon.

We have all kinds of competition in Malaysia from sports to anything ~ you name it, we have it. And now the Majlis Perbandaran Selayang had been so damn creative that they organized a Dog Catching Competition. Read more about it here. What a barbaric act!!!!!

But are we all taught to be caring to all kinds of living creatures that God created (whether if you are a Muslims, Christians, Buddhist, etc). This barbaric action had caught lots of attention. To read more and support action against this insane proposal by Majlis Perbandaran Selayang, go here. And here

Mizuno Wave Run 10k

This is my comeback race after been dormant for almost 1 month. To be exact my last race was Aug 5. No running what so ever since then. The day didnt started on the right note cos I overslept!!!! Only woke up at 6.00am ~ no time to do the morning business, no breakfast, blah blah blah.

Luckily the race site is in town else there is no way I can reach on time. Managed to find a parking slot at Bukit Aman. The place was already in full swing with activities having runners all ready for the race. Did some stretching and warmup, and as usual bumped into some running frens. Time to walk down to Padang Merbok at 6.45am

Met some PMs at Padang Merbok and by 7.15am all runners were requested to masuk kandang and be ready for the race. As my fitness sucks big time, I put no pressure on myself to run a fast race. To me any thing under 60mins will be a BIG BONUS for me.

The race started on time, gun off by Datuk Siah Kok Chi. From the very beginning I was running very cautiously so as not to burn myself out since we have to take on the Double Hill and the last uphill towards the end near the Forestry Department.

First 5km was ran under easy pace and consistently I was able to maintain a 5.30min/km pace. I was really surprised that I can do that even when my fitness is not up to mark. Decided to maintain this pace as long as I can, and I shud be able to finish the race under 60mins if I dont slack.

At the Double Hill stretch I slowed down just to conserve my energy. I took the uphill with ease and in no time I am out of it and onto the hi-way leading towards the Forestry Dept. I took on the last uphill stretch without any problem and turning towards Tugu Negara. At this point it shud be around 2km from the finishing.

I turn on my turbo (as what PM1 always do) and start to potong sayur from here onwards. Was cruising at faster pace and reaches Tugu Negara, then turn left onto Jalan Parlimen. Maintain my turbo pace and crossed the finishing line in 56mins38secs under a Garmin 205 measured distance of 10.6km. Was quite satisfied with my timing although a sub-55mins will be even more appealing but no complains under the kind of fitness I am at currently.

So this is the last race before the 1 month break for the Hari Puasa season where our Muslim frens will be going thru. And this will be a time for me to regain my fitness.

SELAMAT HARI BERPUASA to all Muslim frens.
