Off to the Oil Town!

Guess what? I’m off to Miri in a couple of hours! I’m so excited! I haven’t breathe Miri air since the year 2000! I’m curious to see how much it has changed (or not) and to meet all my old friends, including my bro and cousin who are living there. Thanks to Air Asia (Now […]...More

Anti-sedentary Flabby Ass Cheeks Speaks

My 33-year old body hurts. That’s no thanks to three sedentary weeks. Three weeks without futsal, gym workouts or any other physical exercise (no, sex does not count!). It’s amazing how much damage inactivity does to your body. After postponing my first visit to the gym of the month on Tuesday, I decided Thursday was […]...More

Weight Watching 101

I had the pleasure of going for a body analysis test at the gym the other day.  Since realising how blubbery I was in September last year,  I had not only drastically changed my diet (I have been vegetarian for 4 months, but not vegan) but also hitting the gym regularly with some personal training […]...More

Busted ankle. Down but not quite out.

Futsal night ended in a bit of misery (and lots of pain thrown in for good measure!) on Wednesday night. Just a minute after scoring a goal, while in pursuit of the ball in possession of my Spanish opponent, my left ankle got caught in an awkward position when I changed direction. Heard some unpleasant […]...More

Siem Reap, Cambodia – Day One

I hardly caught any sleep before I had to get up at 5.30am, on a day which usually involves recuperative sleep at the start of the weekend. It was a mad, mad rush the night before to get everything settled – stocking up on supplies, collecting my digicam from Stan, dropping of J’s car at […]...More

Back to Civilisation. Reluctantly.

The moment we alighted from the Air Asia Boeing 737, our skin welcomed the cool air. The heat and humidity that we’ve encountered over the past 7 days in Cambodia and Vietnam became mere memories. Almost instantly, we stopped perspiring. Although reluctant to come home and face the dread of the office come Monday, I […]...More

Cambodia, here we come!

Will be taking a week’s hiatus from the hustle and bustle, and sadly, blogging. I’m off to Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and also Vietnam from tomorrow and for the next 7 days. I promise to take lots of pics (as much as my 20th Century 32MB Sony memory stick can carry) and I’ll be sure […]...More

Me, surprised? Hell no!

March 2 is always a special day for me. (mark that in your calendars guys and girls!) It reminds me of yesterday, and shows me today how much I have moved on and also ultimately, what lies ahead. Outright celebrating with a lavish dinner or party is another thing though. I just wanted a quiet, […]...More

Rock-climbing. A New Found Passion.

Not someone who would stay at home and rot, I joined race partner Stanley for rock-climbing at Camp 5, One Utama last Friday. I have always been intrigued about scaling walls and rock, although I am shit scared of heights. I live on the 17th floor and you will not find me lingering on the […]...More

Move over, 05, it’s 06!

Time flies doesn’t it? It’s bloody 2006 already. I’ve lived 3.1 decades and counting. Bejeezuz. It’s scary, exciting, unflailingly unpredictable. Will I be rich? Will I be famous? Que sera sera. Eh? Nevermind. 2006 is as eccentric and psychedelic as I want it to be. That’s right. I claim rights to two-zero-zero-six. Or two-naught-naught-six. I […]...More

Ankle Transplant Needed

In the middle of attempting bad tackles and shooting from long range, I limped off the Sunway Extreme Park futsal field last night. In pain. Barely 15 minutes of sweat and toil. My infamous left leg again managed a powerful long distance goal before I gave it rest. My left foot has gained quite a […]...More
