If you’ve ever gotten caught in the rain riding your bike, you might have noticed that the most soaked-through part of your body was your knees and thighs. Here’s an answer for that problem: Rainlegs, which are made out of wind and water-repellent parachute cloth. This unusual $43 garment rolls up into a very small package that you wear around your waist like a belt, and then if you get caught in a cloudburst, you simply roll them down and cover up those legs. These look like they would work for runners and walkers, too, where even when you have a raincoat on, your legs get soaking wet in a downpour. It just happened to me the other day. Now if they can just come up with a solution for that wet-back-from-the-tirewash problem, we writing riders of the blogosphere could stay completely dry while riding in the rain. Or we could just stay inside in our pajamas.
just a short one today, cause went to De Hair Loom to cut justin’s hair, and waited for baybie’s perm to be done, me and Jus went to have a drink, we talk about the usual till this funny thing came up, well the topic of conversation was about life, and life it was, we were saying how we should not take life for granted.. this that.. money hard to come by etc..etc.. yada yada, but he mention this about LUCK, well its really true to know that EVERYBODY hhas luck on their side, its that god gave everyone equal luck in life,
This luck we are talking about is LIFE’s LUCK, it might come early and it might come later in life, there was this guy who had a tough life in the first 40 years of his life, he struggle in life just to make do with his life, he just had the worst luck oh his time, unimaginable stuff happens to him like being robbed, off and on jobs this and that, when his luck came.. it banged him like he can’t believe it, he struck the lottery like nobody’s business every month 2 to 3 times and its not winning 100 or 400 bucks its by the ten ‘s of thousand, and it was close to a cool million by the year end, well i dont know if you agree with me or not, but i do believe that everyone has equal luck, Jus says that it will come now or later or evenly distributed.. but to me, I say, some people just have all the luck ! :)

haha, i had hopes i had dreams to be in a special elite force, like some super starship troopers or some deathstar storm troopers or even the REBEL force but most of all this elite team is really realistic in terms of a TEAM.
whats this all about ? well its actually TEAM POWERBAR, paw wehhh !! okok ..
Team Elite Program was started in America 15 years ago. Currently US have more than 8000 athletes and influence on board. In Malaysia, it was started in 2002. This year, Malaysia has increase it members up to 26 athletes. Team Elite is a program in which it will support athletes so they can achieve their goals, while also allowing PowerBar to achieve its goal. It is a “win-win” program for the athletes and the brand itself. Just as our athletes look to PowerBar to fuel their successes, we look to our athletes to fuel our success through endorsements and exposure they bring to our products and brand everyday. The athletes that been selected in Team Elite program are not only stellar athletes, but also a leader in their community. These are athletes of all levels, from up and coming young athletes to top age group, from amateurs to professionals. In short, these athletes will become PowerBar ambassador. We are not only focus on core sports such as athletics, triathlon swimming and cycling, but also concentrate on sports that is quite popular with the mass that can bring out the best of PowerBar products.
well, to be honest, all sports I do ler, but its just so great to be sponsored, imagine bearing a name on your shoulder. now why would you want to let It down, the responsiblity is given, so why not go all out and win something, but still i dont take that into account just because someone sponsor me I go win, even without sponsorship, i have been a motivator for many already.
oh why i wrote this out is cause i receive a letter today from Nestle products sdn bhd. NO NO its not stating that I am a elite member already, its to tell me that to wait and see if I am selected by early Jan. so wait for updates to see if I will be advertising and being a spoke person for them. no doubt if i am They will see Powerbar name go far far country. Cause i am planning to join alot of races out of Malaysia next year, already inline Thailand, HongKong and maybe Macau. see what happens and wish me luck !
Been hearing lots of break up stories , some anand facts of the day
- More often than not, breaking up is as hard on the person ending the relationship as it is on the person being broken up with – don’t assume just because a person is breaking up with you means that they no longer care about you, caring about you and wanting a relationship with you are not one and the same.
- Nobody likes to hurt another person, especially somebody they have been close to, and it is often very easy to guilt trip somebody into staying with you when they are trying to end things. Resist this urge! When you use guilt as a way to stop a break up you not only cheat yourself out of having a good and true relationship, you foster resentment in the other person which could lead to greater pain and heart ache in the future.
- Being broken up with does not mean that there is something wrong with you; it just means that there is something that is not working in the relationship. Try not to take the rejection too personally. Remember that lots of great people have had failed relationships – the fact that the relationships failed says nothing about their value as a person. The fact that your relationship failed likewise says nothing about you as a person.
- It is all right to cry, get mad and feel hurt when you are dumped. These are normal natural feelings. Just be sure that you let your feelings out in a safe place among friends or family. Do not make your ex the target of your feelings, even if they have done something to deserve your outrage. The sooner you let go of the other person, the sooner the healing can begin.
- Breaking up is never easy. You will have good days and you will have bad days. Take it one day at a time and don’t beat yourself up if you have an overly emotional day – you’re only human after all.
- Break ups are often followed by one of the parties starting a new relationship and when this happens it can bring up all sorts of old feelings. If you thought you were over someone who broke up with you and find yourself upset at the news that s/he has moved on, rest assured you are normal. Let yourself be upset, it is part of the healing process.
- Acting out in anger is never good for anybody. After being broken up with don’t spread mean or spiteful rumors. Don’t betray former confidences by telling old secrets to others. If another person was involved in your break up resist the urge to slam them behind their back. Acting vicious only makes you look bad and any satisfaction you may feel will be short lived. In the end this sort of behaviour will only make you feel worse.
- A big part of the pain of breaking up comes from a feeling of embarrassment. We often fear how the situation will look to outsiders. Refuse to be embarrassed, even if you did something outlandish to cause your break up. Letting go of the embarrassment will help you move on to the healing.
- Nobody ever deserves to be hurt. Your ex does not deserve to be hurt because you are hurting. Your ex’s new love interest (if one even exists) does not deserve to be hurt just because you feel jealous. You do not deserve to be hurt, even if you acted badly and caused the break up. Breaking up hurts, but it doesn’t have to be made worse by holding a grudge or drowning yourself in a pool of if only’s. Deal with the reality and let go of your anger, the pain will disappear more quickly if you do.
- Things may seem bleak now but you never know what the future may hold for you and your ex. You may get back together someday. You may not. Either way it is better to let go of a faltering relationship while there is still some caring left between the two of you. If you play it out to the bitter end and leave your ex no choice but to hate you to get rid of you, you close the door to the future. Bowing out graciously leaves room for a future relationship with your ex, even if it is just as good friends.

I thought that I needed to insure my bicycle against theft. I’ve heard that bikes get stolen every day in my city and I want bicycle insurance to cover my investment. I am very careful about locking my bike up every time I get off of it. I use a really nice U-Lock and wear the key on a chain around my neck. I found out that one of my friends was dating an insurance salesman and contacted him with my questions.
I asked him about bicycle insurance and he said that my homeowners or renters insurance policy would cover my bicycle if it was stolen. He said that there were a lot of limitations and exclusions, though. He said that my bike would probably have to be stolen from my home to be fully insured.
I was thinking that if I had bicycle insurance and my bike was stolen, insurance money would buy me a new one. That turned out to be untrue. The agent I talked to told me that if my bike was covered, I would be reimbursed for the value of a new model, less depreciation for every year old my bicycle was. I’m thinking that, depending on the rate of depreciation, I may end up owing money if my old bike was stolen!
The agent I talked to told me that I had to maintain good records for bicycle insurance. He told me to take a photo inventory of my possessions and to keep receipts. He also said that any time I am making a claim against an insurance policy for theft; I need to have a police report attached to the form. It is also very important to be accurate when declaring the value of the property stolen.
On usual lazy Sunday morning, I was suppose to be out doing my training, but this time I did not, as I have already lapse two weeks in my training already, knowing that Kuantan Tri is near yet I am still sitting down and doing nothing much for training,
so ya back to my lazy ass on this Sunday, I was on my Friendster account and i decided to click on most viewed profile, and guess what i see, i see lots of pretty girls with sultry pose, but when you decide to click on them and see this hilarious similarity in them, well what’s the similarity you ask? its the friends that they have, its usually 900+ friends and this is not only one account that they have but 2 to even 3 accounts, this girl i seen has already 26th account, click here for 26th account, that that makes it 26000 of young people she knows, how ridiculous can that be? that’s like a small nation, is she the queen ? well i don’t know ! maybe. and for those who have like 5 to 6 accounts ? maybe the rule the island of Kurkorubora near off the coast of Kazakhstan
Friendster is becoming a haven for guys to perve and satisfy their sexual needs as you can see picture comments stating that they want to fuck, they want to do this do that.. sigh, what’s wrong with you guys ? What happen to constructive criticism go get a life you doofus. Not to mention that there are accounts solely for lesbianism, wow, everytime when i clicked on one of these account i would always tell myself, oh great another GOLD MINE! its true, you would see this girls in pose that makes even Playboy look demure, and yet this girls are only 20ish, but hey can’t stop em and don’t want to stop em too !
I’ve also notice that some girls rip off other girls picture and pose it of as themself? why in the world you do that for? what do you gain from this ? i am really baffled with this move? can someone tell me ? why why why ? this morning itself i have seen this picture in three accounts, you tell me which is the real person ? Evelyn, Shuang or Sayuri, i cant tell if either one of them is the real person,
Why is people misusing friendster in this way? I have found that Friendster has really help me connect to my friends who are god knows where in the world they are, but yet it acts like my personal address book, I can msg them anytime I want, or telling them how we need to catch up on life. I do not add people I dont personally know and yes i only have a few hundred not even touching 400 people in my list, and some on this list are clubs and association that i affiliate to. anyway I think Friendster is great so use it dont abuse it ! Catch ya later !
ps: my Friendster account, just drop by and check it out
