2017, over and out.

It’s less than a week to Christmas, and before the festivities and *ahem*¬†debauchery begins…(and by debauchery, you know I really mean, I’ll wake up at 8 am instead of 6, eat pasta on non race days, drink 1 maybe 2 glasses of wine, go to bed at past midnight, run ONLY twice a week, and … Continue reading »

On money. and life.

Today has to be the gloomiest day of November. On top of the non-stop pitter-patter of rain outside my balcony, I come across not one, not two but three pieces of really sad, depressing news. It’s no wonder people stop reading the news, and start focusing on pictures of food instead. Because the real world … Continue reading »

#RoadtoGurye

Fit Your Bike to You

So I’ve always told people that I am not a very good cyclist. I struggle on most of the uphills, the dragon backs, the Bukit Hantus, the Brogas female or male, and when it comes to the flats, I can’t quite bring my speed to keep up with most of my friends. For one thing, … Continue reading »

How to be a Happy Bride

It’s been 3 weeks since I stuffed my boobs in a nu-bra and a gorgeous white wedding gown, had Hollywood standard make up and hair styling (like seriously, Taylor…whooo?), and felt like the Duchess of Subang Jaya as I dreamily got whisked away by Gary, my charming Duke of Damansara.

Because of that, anything that says its water-proof, shock-proof, scratch-proof, (idiot-proof) always bling like diamond to me and I’d be drawn … Continue reading »
