World Kidney Day

By Aiman Cheah Tiong Chap

Date: 25 March 2008
Time: 7.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m.
Venue: Hospital Serdang

I happily went to Hospital Serdang on 23 March (Sunday) for the walkathon. I was surprised to see the banner stating that the event was to be held on 25th March! My daughter was a bit disappointed because she has brought her colour pencils and crayons for colouring contest.

Just for the fun of it, I asked the nurses at the reception regarding the date. She informed me that the newspapers had printed the date wrongly. Wah, like that also can, ah? Why can the newspapers make correction on the following day? I saw some quiz forms placed at the counter. The closing date was earlier. Anyway, she asked me to answer the questions. I told her that the closing date was over. She said it was okay. So I filled up two forms as my wife was busy handling Akmal. I were given two ‘tak nak’ buttons as a momento.

Thought I could take part in the walkathon but then the last date for registration was on Friday, 21 March! (I guess if I ask, I may be given the green light to join too. Anyway, I thought that would be tricky as I will be traveling from Rawang on Tuesday and have to take my wife and daughter to school and kindy respectively.)

So we headed to Carrefour in Midvalley because the day before I could not get any Frisolac 3. I was surprised that the new packaging RRP was at RM39.40. I used to buy the old packaging at around RM33. Sale price was at RM28.99. I was not sure if there was any limit. I grabbed 6. If the limit is 3, then I’d handle 3 and the balance would go to my wife. Bought some muffins for tea at Duta Palms and Anglers Club, Rawang in the afternoon.

Afiqah was happy at the resort and so was her brother. They enjoyed playing in the water. Unfortunately, in my hurry, I had forgotten to bring their float and ball. Anyway, one boy in the pool was happy to play his ball with Akmal.

I was surprised to receive a call the next day, saying that my wife had won a prize for the quiz. After putting down the phone for a few minutes, my mobile was ringing and was informed that I, too had won a prize. We were invited for the prize giving ceremony. I was told to go to the auditorium at 8.30 a.m. Actually, there was a forum. It was informative because the speakers were kidney patients. Before the forum, the answers for the quiz were discussed. I got one wrong answer. Actually there is 1 out of 10 people who will have some form of kidney problems. My answer was 1 out of 1,000!

Our prizes were ceramic Snoopy mugs with lids and teaspoons. I regretted that I didn’t ask about the walkathon earlier. The participants had nice collared-t-shirts. The first three got hampers, 4-10 some form of presents and all got their certificates and trophies! Never mind a small one. It would be a good remembrance. We were all treated to lunch. However, I had to skip it because I need to fetch my Afiqah. If they had informed me earlier, I could have savoured the dishes.

Oh, for a free event, the walkathon participants were given breakfast after the walkathon. I feel the event should be held on a Sunday if they want more people to participate – no lunch or breakfast pun tak per lah if they need to cut cost. People come here to enjoy themselves and to be enlightened on kidney health. It’s a shame that the auditorium is only half full.

Company Xplorace 2008: Pulau Perhentian

One of my company sport club grand events this year was XPLORACE 2008 at Pulau Perhentian, Terengganu. It was 2D1N event held last week 19-21Mac. Every year they organized treasure hunt event to south till Johor, north up to Bangkok, west cross to Pangkor and this year to east coast, Pulau Perhentian, Terengganu. Seem no car can drive, explorace is suitable around the island

For me.. after years of working, this was my first time involved in out-door sport club event. But itu pon terpaksa pi, coz i'm went as a committee.

With 4 buses x 40 passengers, we move from Gurun, Kedah at 10:30pm (Wednesday) and did subuh prayer in Besut Jetty. Every-body seems very excited including me and most of us never been there. We had local meal, nasi dagang as breakfast at jetty before jump into speed-boat.

Baca doa selamat sebelum bertolak. Kawan depan dah lena siap

Breakfast @Jetty Besut

Tunggu bot

30mins later or 8:45am, we reach at Perhentian Island Resort. Fuh! The water is clear like looking thru mirror. Could see groups of fish playing around the boat jetty and the beach... Oh! Cilakak i wish i could join the mat salleh girls with bikini laying under sun. Doing nothing. Just put my sunglass.

Fantastic Island

Last group sampai

Pasir pantai halus, putih dan bersih. But satu benda aku 'marah'... ada minah jogging dengan ipod pi-mai-pi-mai depan aku while waiting other group sampai. Menyirap - Mau aku tukaq to running gear and join her.

But 9:30am, we changed to official tee and listen short briefing for committee. I was assigned to capture event photos. Wuhahaaaa.. meaning i can go anywhere with my dig-cam equipment.


With 48 team waiting, we split them into five groups to start all the 5 tasks concurrent. Each team consist of 3 members need to completed all tasks around the resort such as
1. Fish catching
2. Build sand castle
3. Jungle trekking
4. Crab catching
5. Save the balloons
6. Fear Factor

When the wisel blew, i was busy running, capturing, and snapping photos in 5 different locations.

Looking for clues

Crab catching

Menangkap ikan pakai tangan

Jungle trekking

Kawan ni.. cukup banyak

Sand Castle

Save the balloons

Last event - Fear Factor. Makan limau+ulat dengan roti sapuan telur mentah. Glup!

Until 2pm all teams completed their tasks and i captured more than 300 photos. - Ceh! i should get one DSLR laarr. There were alot of shots should be better if using DSLR. eeemmmm..

Result will be announce during dinner, so after lunch we're free - aktiviti bebas!

I took apportunity to try snorkeling for 3 hours at 3 different locations. Fuyoh! Ikan cantik. Aku ingat rupa depa macam ikan temenung or cencaru. I brought together biskut ikan and feed in-front of my google... huh! mak aiihh gelojoh. Kaler merah, kuning, biru, oren, belang hitam and macam2 saiz.

Going for snorkeling

Lastly we searching for penyu. After 15-20mins boat-around the favorite locations, suddenly the tekong said..
"Tu dia.. kat bawah! Cepat terjun!!"
Kabush! - kosong bot.
Kitaorg ligan penyu. Besar siot. 2ekor.

The dinner and karaoke end until late mid-night. 11pm - I said good-night to party. Had my own agenda next morning.

After subuh gajah :=) Sunyi, sejuk cuma bunyi ombak. I changed to tight, serelom stokin and put my pegasus. Yeah! morning run! I love exploring new places by running. Went to other-side of resort, trail-run thru jungle trek and 4-5 kali depan resort for 30mins (ingat jauh..)

After breakfast i went for canoeing for an hour and swim in pool (actually i try swim in open water but my phobia too strong and i almost drown - breast-stroke save me).

1:30pm - I said bye-bye to Pulau Perhentian and heading back to Jetty Besut.

Report Amazing Kidneys Walk

By Aiman Cheah Tiong Chap

Date: 16th March, 2008 (Sunday)
Time: 7.00 am (registration). 8.00 am (Walk)
Venue: Taman Jaya Recreational Park, Petaling Jaya (Opposite Amcorp Mall)

This is a charity walk. Non-competitive and the purpose is to create awareness of the importance of kidney and how not to abuse them.

I reached the venue at around 7.30 am and quickly reported for the event. I went late because I have pre-registered for the event. I was informed that they had run out of adult sized t-shirts. It was fine with me because it was not compulsory to wear them during the walk. I took the small one which fitted nicely with my eldest child. I planned that she should wear it for the colouring competition to be held in the afternoon.

Mr Louis Cheong Koon Hoe had started the warm up session. I just joined him. I have always enjoyed the warm up session by him in various charity events. He is also a technical official with the FTAAA.

The walk began after all the speeches. We had to walk two laps which were about 4km. However, I think it was less than one km per lap. I did about 6 minutes per lap. There was no way I could go that fast because I was not fit for a race. I took the lead after half of the first lap. It was a good exercise and continued doing 5 laps. Took it as training as I completed the first two laps in about 11 minutes. If it was a race, I would not stand a chance to be leading. There were three ‘good walkers’ and I have never "outwalked" one of them.

There was lucky draw after the warm down session. Not lucky this time but no one walked home empty handed. We got our goodie bag at the Amcorp Mall.

I returned to Amcorp Mall in the afternoon for the colouring contest. There were two professional looking young artists. They brought along their 'table' for colouring. They won hands down, clearly a class above the rest. However, my daughter was very happy because she was judged 4th. She was so proud. She owed it to her mummy who coached her on which colours to use. Not too bad for a 4-year-old child.

I may go to Serdang Hospital next week for another walk. I guess it is also a non-competitive walk and probably no goodie bag because it is free. There will also be colouring contest and healthy cooking demonstration. It should be a good family event. I may go for another screening test because I am not satisfied with the result especially on cholesterol.
