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. It was indeed a fairy … Continue reading »

Taking Selfies to a whole new level

I’ve always been an outdoorsy girl, I love hiking, trail running, rock climbing, swimming in the ocean, cycling on the highways, despite our warm tropical climate, the great outdoors always call out to me. 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 »

On inching closer to 30.

39 days after my last post was undeniably the biggest day of my life. I crossed that finish line in Langkawi, my family and friends cheered, tears of joy were streaming down my face, and I was walking on clouds! It was a phenomenal feeling, a sense of accomplishment so great, I even went on … Continue reading »

T-39 days to the Big Eagle

It’s just a little over a month to Ironman. I had initially wanted to write a post with my thoughts about my whole journey at exactly 30 days to Ironman, but I happen to have some free time right now, and my notebook is fully charged right this very moment, so I figured why not now. … Continue reading »

113 Bukit Merah International Triathlon 2015

All throughout last week I was searching through cyber-space for my past blog entry which told the story of my first encounter in Bukit Merah. I know I had taken part in a tri here before, but what distance, which year, I really could not remember, until I finally found it, my blog post entitled … Continue reading »

Desaru 113 International Triathlon 2015

The Desaru 113 triathlon happened earlier this year (June) than it did last year (August), so it definitely doesn’t feel like enough time has passed since we last bundled ourselves into a car and drove many hours down to this little town called Bandar Penawar in Johor. With the memory of last year’s race still … Continue reading »

twenty.fifteen.

It’s the last day of May and I do realize it has been ages since I last blogged anything. It’s the year 2015, so I guess blogging is considered vintage in this age. I’m sitting on my bed listening to a playlist called “Quiet Evening” on Spotify – something to show the kind of mood … Continue reading »

Being ID’d

I’ve always been a slow rider on my road bike and people tend to say, “You just need more practise, more mileage!”, which is probably true, except that I spend a lot of the time during these rides with these he-kudas and she-kudas (male and female horses…or stallions) riding by my lonesome because I struggle … Continue reading »

113K Desaru Triathlon

I am usually pretty rash when it comes to signing up for races. In the sense that I rarely give it much thought. But for this particular race, I think at the back of my head I somehow felt invincible. I had completed the Putrajaya Ironman 70.3 and although it was the most challenging event … Continue reading »

Ironman 70.3 | Putrajaya

Despite feeling antsy all day the day before, I slept like a baby from 10.30 pm till 4.30 am. I woke up feeling pretty good, calm and chilled out. As if it was just another day. I think at this time, the thought of doing a whole 70.3 Ironman has not quite sunk into me. … Continue reading »
