well i am just going to shorten this blog cause the one that i written had a error and everything in it was completely wiped off when i was about to publish it, F#$K .. then again,i wont be shortening it cause i just wanna blabber about everything. I just feel like pouring it out.. sigh.. bear with me lah,
ok whats with the title you say ? well its actually a magazine for adventure touring and some traveling stuff, i am not sure (hey editor have this mag been published yet or is it coming out soon) well for one thing i am sure that i did a shoot for them for the October issue for the magazine, and the best part i think its a 2 page article featuring me, YES ME ! haha, ok i think its one page.. gimme some glamour can. Everyone wants glamour right ? well in this article it will feature me as a nomandic adventure junkie land in ayman term a crazy traveling adventure person.
Well for instant let me tell you why i was chosen, Ahem Ahem, its cause of my resemblence to that good looking Hong Kong star (ok ok that unknown HongKong guy sitting in the bar..okok that hongkie guy walking down the street.. okok that guy who was just asked about his background over lunch, aik this is degrading..ngek ngek ngek)
ok to be honest its cause of me doing crazy stuff when i am overseas, did you know that i bring my running shoes when i am on trip, its not for me to walk in it when i am there, but to go running when i am in the country, its sorta like exploring the place, exploring the nooks and cranny of the area where you cant see when you are with a tour, oh when i go on holiday i never follow tour, its always planned bus trip, MRT, ERT, LRT, TUBE or walking and last resort.. taxi is when i am in a hurry, but usually MASS PUBLIC TRANSPORT is the best, i like t when you sit on a foreign bus and hear the people talk and see the way the react when a foreigner weilds a camera and start snapping pictures. haha ..
ok back to my running shoes yes my might running shoe follows me where-ever i go, let me clue you in on the Best Three spot for my running escapade in the foreign land (and sorry no pics cause i dont carry a cam when i run)
1. Bangkok – Lumphini Park
you ask why ? cause i feel like i am in Hong Kong, well i was in Hong Kong but this beats Hong Kong, there is this park in the middle of Bangkok City at Ranma 4, its situated near Suan Luam Market and do go there as early as 7am cause thats the time where you would see ladies and families in the park doing thier daily exercise, oh why hong kong its cause when i told you its situated in the middle of the city, yes the towering skyscraper and the sound of bus, mrt, and cars moving along side the park makes it like HK, it reminise cause the people there are all Thai (whom look like chinese) you would see some expat running also but i usually dont bother as i am too busy looking at the scenery around this park, its just Breathtaking, only disadvantage is the Air around the park when you run to near to the street.
2. Melbourne – Monash University
you ask why? well i was in the campus as my cousin was doing his training for soccer, so i ended up doing my rounds in the field nearby (wow its 8pm and the sky was still bright) or was it the floodlight nearby? haha .. cant remember, but it was perfect, running here is like having bigger lungs and non-existance sweating glands, the tempreture was so cooling that when i was running like the 5th round it was still like my first, can’t really sweat yo, cause of the air, and its a bit too cold, but still its really cool to be running in weather like this. Catch up with Cous to play footie for a while, kicking the ball to no man’s land, hey BeckKeong teach me how you bend it like Keong ok.
3. Brisbane – Queensland University of Technology
you ask why? well its cause i was staying near QUT and the area was hilly, i tell you Brisbane is my home, if i was not wrong i think i was born there but brought here to Malaysia, its beautiful the air is crisp and the hills and slopes not mentioning all the active people. Went to play tennis around that area with some friends, so after finishing a game or two, i went rounding the premises, i was over at the Track and field and saw a couple of girls running, hehe.. ok i wasnt as fast as them but sure hell i wasnt following them ok. Why QUT cause its really big space and lots of beautiful hills.
well so much for my running trips around the world, lots more places but none can challenge that three top places to go for a short run.
oh ya.. the guys in the picture are professional photographer (long hair dude, ERIC and red tshirt Shawn) saw a couple of his shots for the mag, really cool, hope he used it cause i look menacing man. well till OCTOBER we wait then. Should i scan the mag out ? or should you guys just go flip it at the bookstore. I hope he will pass me the cd of all the pictures.. maybe i can post some here as my avatar. Till then take care and as always CATCH YA LATER and god bless !
