View all 28 photos...
KLIM...came and left.. hehehe.. this entry is kind of late(KLIM was on 18th March).. finally got to run my first KLIM, and my 3rd half marathon. 1st half marathon was in 2005 in Kuantan.. last year I did register for KLIM, already got the number and shirt, but couldn't run at the very last minute.. family call . anyway, this time i didn't have any excuse not to run.in fact, i was really looking forward to it.. yeah, despite all the training, and circuit runs. went for the 2nd and 3rd circuit.. got fourth place for both.. if dapat 3rd place at least dapat balik the entry fee...huhuh...kay kay... my Kuantan friends came down.. Ganesan , Cheong, Azrul, Sharon, Crystal , Sifu Tan Wah Sing, William and a few more.. oh ya , Jimmy Panjang was around also. Missing in action --> cikgu Lee, Ah Fook, Moto Chai and jimmy topi.. miss them..

well, this entry is specially dedicated to my Kuantan friends.. miss you all soooo much... miss Kuantan alsoo lah... we the Kuantan Pacesetters are a bunch... not only we have all the main races in Malaysia in our group..(duh).. but also our group consists of people from varying age range, background.. we have Poot poot chew.. the funny and sometimes blurry guy who comes to Taman Gelora every eve on his Poot poot motor bike.. we have Jimmy Topi, called topi cause he never comes to Gelora/Bukit Pelindung without his topi.. Jimmy Panjang, to distinguish from the other Jimmy, Ms Soh...coz she's still single..but im not sure if availble.i'll ask her ..heheh.. then we have the ever bising and kecoh Crystal..hehe.. minah ni bising gila.. but he running also not bad. in fact she does run barefooted (like our Sifu Tan Wah Sing.).. who else ?? oh ya, i can't end go on without mentioning Abe Din.. one of the few Malays from the Kuantan group. ha, this guy looks much younger than his age.. ehem... rambut slalu kemas..in fact, the last time i went to Kuantan, he's got a new hair do.. tapi tak pernah lari outside Kuantan... but I believe he'll be running the Penang Bridge Marathon in June this year.. so , watch out Penang..hahahaha.. kay, next next... cikgu Lee !! mana pigi ??? why didn't come for Great Eastern 30k and KLIM ?? miss you and your wife !!!

anyway, hope to see you guys soon ...when ah ??? June !!!! ayyaa.... takpelah, June pon, June lah.. unless i got to Kuantan before that ! Here are a few pictures of us taken in Kuantan and KL...

Thaipusam Festival, Batu Caves

Thaipusam is a Hindu festival celebrated mostly by the Tamil community on the full moon in the Tamil month of Thai (Jan/Feb). Pusam refers to a star that is at its highest point during the festival. The festival commemorates both the birthday of Lord Murugan (also Subramaniam), the youngest son of Shiva and Parvati, and the occasion when Parvati gave Murugan a vel (lance) so he could vanquish the evil demon Soorapadman.

Devotees prepare for the celebration by cleansing themselves through prayer and fasting. On the day of the festival, devotees will shave their heads undertake a pilgrimage along a set route while engaging in various acts of devotion, notably carrying various types of kavadi (burdens). At its simplest this may entail carrying a pot of milk, but mortification of the flesh by piercing the skin, tongue or cheeks with vel skewers is also common. The most spectacular practice is the vel kavadi, essentially a portable altar up to two meters tall, decorated with peacock feathers and attached to the devotee through 108 vels pierced into the skin on the chest and back. Fire walking and flagellation may also be practiced. It is claimed that devotees are able to enter a trance, feel no pain, do not bleed from their wounds and have no scars left behind. However, some of the more extreme masochistic practices have been criticized as dangerous and contrary to the spirit and intention of Hinduism

The largest Thaipusam celebrations take place in Singapore and Malaysia. The temple at the Batu Caves, near Kuala Lumpur, often attracts over one million devotees and tens of thousands of tourists[citation needed]. The procession to the caves starts at the Maha Mariamman Temple in the heart of the city and proceeds for 15 kilometers to the caves, an 8-hour journey culminating in a flight of 272 steps to the top. In Malaysia, although rare, scenes of people from different ethnic groups and faiths bearing "kavadi" can also be seen

Assalamualaikum !!! 3rd Penang International 12Hour Walk.. one memorable and interesting event !!! Been taking part in runs the past 4-5 years..but never a walk !!! i didn't get much sleep the night before.. in the morning woke up 9ish.. and by 11 had to get ready to collect t-shirt and number.. walked around 3km before reaching Esplanade...phew....sweating tak ingat ponya.. it was so hot and terik !! the walk thru Argyll Road, Lebuh Chulia and Lebuh Light was an interesting one.. hehe.. macam2 boleh tgk .. Penangites busy with their daily activities.. and despite the availability of a road map, i still need verbal assistance.. 'Uncle, how do i get to Esplanade'...'Excuse me aunty, macam mana mau pigi Padang Kota?'.. (baru tau padang kota and esplanade refers to the same place..)..patutla aku cari Esplanade kat map tak jumpak...ciss...

the registeration went smoothly..i came in early, and there were so many people.but the crowd eventually built up..no familiar face.. checked my name at the start list outside the building, and then proceed to the counter.D542..deposit (for time chip) RM20..took my shirt,number,booklet..Had lunch at one of the mamak's.. so hungry !!!! the ayam madu so tasty !!!!!!!! haha.. must come again ah..

so back to the room.. managed to nap kejap..5ish already getting ready.. 5.30pm set off..6pm already there.. but this time took a shorter route..lalu area E&O Hotel, Lebuh Farquhar.. sampai sana, dah rama orang...hehe...and yeay...a few familiar faces !! pacesetters from KL !! saw tey,jamie pang,ms foo sook ying,to name a few..

the walk started on time.... no rush..gun went off...and the participants started walking..hihih... semangat,...1st time kan..the guy standing next to me ..(encik halim...or wahid...wahid rasanye..)..regular participant in walking comp.. his advice to me : walk as much as possible... jangan tidur ! and jangan berhenti lama sangat for the food and drinks.. thatz what i did beginning from the first lap... no food and drinks until the 1st hour is over.. basically i only stopped hourly at the food station..giler banyak food.. u can wallop as much food and drink as u can..huhu.. if only they could provide power drink instead of 100plus.. cold and sweet !! but then again, better than nothing kan ! surprisingly i didnt get sleepy after midnite..just kep walking..my own pace.. checking out other walker's style of walking 12hours.. huhu... 12 midnite...nightmate blisters arrived.dah letak dah plaster to wrap some of d toes..but need more ! stopped kat st.johns ambulance kejap coz d extra plaster which i brought not enough !! continued walking without much problem..i couldnt pace with anyone coz everyone in their own time zone.. with they i could only last for 500m with him..i think..

0200 hours : started to get a lilll bit sleepy.luckily they provided coffee.. at the rest tent area, could already see people lepaking, taking their time to chill those joints and muscles.some of them dah sampai cloud 9. me?? continue jalan until the last second.i'm not sure if i was pushing myself..could never tell the limits of my muscles until ........

0500 hours : condemn.........
