Happy Birthday Ayah

Kek kemik sikit.

Wife still dalam "pantang". Until today dah 17days so i decide to make a simple celebration @house. Bought an ice brownie cake from Wall's and kids were jumping looking at lovely ice cake. Yummmy!..

Plus another year on my age = 33.
Plus another "calit" = 3.
Time goes faster.

Syukur alhamdulillah atas rezeki yang diberi, tapi kita musti usaha. Rezeki tak datang bergolek. Cari yang lebih untuk membantu yang kekurangan - another wishes on my birthday..fuuhh!

Report: Shoe String Run

Event: Shoe String Run
Organizers: Touch 'n Grow Community Support (TGCS) with the support from Tri Action Sportz
Date: Sunday, 20 April 2008
Venue: SRK Bukit Kemuning (2)

I must say that this is the event that I find most difficult to get to. The organizer has overlooked my request for directions to the venue/office to collect shirts and running number.

Actually it is quite easy to get to the venue. Use KESAS Highway and head towards Shah Alam. Exit at Kota Kemuning when you see the sign. Keep straight until you come to a roundabout. Take the second exit (12 o'clock turn). You'll see the directions to Surau Al-Hijrah about 100 metres before you reach the second roundabouts. Just look out for the sign to Surau Al-Hijrah. The school is before the surau. And before the school is SMK Bukit Kemuning. If they had told me this, I could have found it without any problem...

Woke up late again... Too tired after sleepless nights to prepare for exam and submit assignments. The CPU also felt the 'heat'... working about 12 hours a day continuously for 2 days and decided to break down. The back up computer has problem when logging in to jaring!!! All these don't help to speed up my work.

Got ready by 6.05 after morning prayers. Carried my son who was still sleeping to the van. Luckily, there was no protest! Unlike Afiqah who has been following me to run when she was as young as 6 months old, Akmal stays home most of the time because he tires every one out.

My daughter was very excited because this was her first 'competitive' run. Even the day before she had asked me to pin her bib and tried on the oversized t-shirt. She wore it anyway.

Although I registered for three persons, in the morning I told the organizer that only two (Afiqah and I) will be running and they made a note on the reporting sheet. Not making note also never mind... sure won't be among the winners... As usual, I would start from the back when I sensed that I would not be competitive. We jogged lightly. I was actually surprised that she could continue for almost 20 minutes! I was too busy to have any sort of training! I used to walk with her to the grocery which is about 25 minutes' walk when I was free early of the year. I gave her a 'lift' after the water station. Too heavy for me... (15.5kg) so I could last for about 50 metres. She walked all the way to the finishing line.

Completed the race in 37minutes 22 seconds. It was certainly a good accomplishment for a 5-year-old girl (to be precise 4 1/2 years old). Perhaps, she could be among the 'challengers' when she is 9 and 12 for aged category races...

She slept early and well at night and luckily no aches this morning. Got a 'grilling' from my brother-in-law. Should not to be too harmful because I did not push her... I agree that 3km is a bit a tall order for a 4 1/2 - year-old kid. I chatted with her all the way to monitor her breathing. If she could chat, surely the pace was not 'demanding'.

The sponsors were very generous. There were ample of muffins and drinks. Afiqah told me that she would want to run in races again. Probably, I'll return for the event next year...

My Girl

Long time i not posting any report or news. Many thanks to my friends who contribute/feed me with event update especially my guest writer Aiman and friends like Tey, Alex, Najib, Rozmi and a few more. Runners out there, who would like to post any event experience, comments, report, tak puashati kaa.. you're welcome here. Email it to me.

Lately i having a very hectic working schedule - training, report writing, documentation, servers/database backup/recovery, appraisal review, shifting to new financial year, bla.. bla blaaa... and miss running for 2 weeks that including swimming and cycling too.

This morning.. i looked at shoes rack - slipper or sandal? i took my Pegasus+ and wear it to wet market - jadik lah..

Beside reba-reba kerja yang bertimbun, i'm also not frequently online. Even my web-mailbox got tonnes of unread mails. I just open and read a personal message. News-letters, RSS, job-recruitment.. berlambak.

To make it worst... - Telephone line along my housing lane kena curik plak since late March. Mangkuk-hayun!!

Already a month report to Telekom, they said they will fix it within 2 weeks but... janji manis. And i received full monthly bill for streamyx which i unable to use.

Mengkuang Dam
1st week of April, i attended a week training at Kulim Hitech. After training session i went to BM Leopard "nest" - Mengkuang Dam. A very nice place for jogging, running, walking and taking deep fresh air.

I join Alex's running training. He took me to trail run thru rubber plantation and climb a nearby hill and after 20mins we reach hill peak. I could saw Bukit Mertajam town, Penang Island and Kulim town at my back.. fuh! such beautiful scenery.

And we continue ran back to Mengkuang Dam thru different route.

Farouk, Alex, Aku and Heri

Next day.. i join PakYa. Lari dengan dia kat Stadium di Kulim. We ran together on stadium track for 30mins. Fuh! seksa sungguh lari atas track. i kept on looking at stopwatch. Nak habiskan 10mins on track pon rasa cukup lama.

Before heading back, i had refreshment and a cup of milo at PakYa house. - Thanks.

For the first time, i miss the KLIM this year. I would like to post the reason... but had no opportunity to do it dengan telepon kabel putuih.

Actually i was in stand-by mode. We (+wife) expecting for 3rd child. The due date was 10 April and 2 week before, i slow abit my workouts. Get home earlier and drawn an "escape route/plan"

Alhamdulilliah on 12 April @2:57pm, I was promoted to Sergeant Haris :-) The 3rd child is girl. Both of them sihat. 3.27kg in weight. But this time wife said sakit sangat-sangat compare to previous delivery. She was in labour room since 8am and doctor had to induce her.

Next day we bring the baby home - She so beautiful and her mom too.

Another ritual as a father (placenta + limau nipis + salt + jarum) tighten in plain cloth and place-in tempurung (jantan-jantan: tempurung yang ada lubang) and buried in-front of my house.

Walking Tall 2008

By Aiman Cheah Tiong Chap

Venue: Taman Tasik Titiwangsa
Time: 7.00 a.m.
Distance: 3 km

This is a non-competitive walking event. More of raising awareness of cervical cancer. I reached the venue at around half past seven. After registration, I was given a t-shirt, a cap and a towel. The health screening 'booths' started early. While waiting for the event to start I went for the normal tests - blood pressure, blood glucose test and BMI. The organizer temporarily stopped the screening test to encourage participants to join the warming up session. Then, the walk started at around 8.15.

At first, I walked with my daughter for about 10 minutes. Then, I decided to return to look for my wife and son. Oh, actually, they had not gone far off from the starting line because Akmal refused to walk and just sat on the pavement! I guessed I did walk for more than a km although I did not sweat much as it was at a snail's pace. We joined the rest to the finishing line and collected our goodie bags.

After that it was the lucky draw sessions. Prizes were Cornell electrical products - I guess there were about 20 of them. Luck was not on my side again this time although it was real close to land one. The MILO and Gardenia van came during the lucky draw session. We get our 'gluten bread' before heading home at around 9.30 a.m.
