If you think Volvo is your old hunk of steel with no taste in design and it’s dated? You guys better sit up and take notice on what I am about to show you, just to start the ball rolling, do check out what new added technology and features Volvo already have in their car system. *Not your typical SATNAV system I would say*
Well, I was given a chance to drive away a Volvo V40 Cross Country for free last weekend, if only I could break the course record for driving down a straight line on the road of Singapore without getting a speeding ticket ( AsIf only that could happen with all the traffic lights nearly 50ft away from each other in the Country we call, Singapore)
Nevertheless I was given the chance to test drive the all new Volvo V40 Cross Country (hope they didn’t find out about my expired driving license) at the Volvo Showroom
Check out the curves on this sleek steel of Volvo’s offering, Imagine I was so enthusiastic about the ride I brought my bike to see if it looks good on the Volvo when placed, and yup it sure fits the bill.
Driving down the road was a real pleasure and in-fact feeling the car in full throttle was like nothing I ever felt, this baby has more feel than the C180, Beemer 3 series, or even the Audi A4 I have driven.
Don’t believe me? go down to the showroom and test it yourself. One you step on the accelerator you will know what I mean by instant power, the car doesn’t vibrate when you power it down the road it just feel so right and smooth.
If you like you can see me testing the car and explaining some of its features or you can skip that and read on the rest of the blogpost
I was blown away by the new technology of safety they have implemented into the current Volvo, I have to say this is really a new level of safety in cars and I hope that all cars in the future if not present FOLLOW the leader.
City Safety is a standard fitted low-speed collision avoidance technology and a Volvo world-first. Designed for safer urban driving and now operating at speeds up to 50 km/h, this laser-based technology can sense standstill or slower moving vehicles in front. If City Safety senses an impending collision, the brakes are pre-charged to act faster on your response. And if you fail to brake, City Safety automatically applies the brakes and switches off the throttle to help mitigate the effects of a collision. And if the speed difference between your car and the vehicle in front is less than 15 km/h, City Safety can even help you avoid a collision.
City Safety is activated when you start the car. Robin asked me to drive closely to one of the cars in front and he told me to relax just ram it in. ( I was like ARE YOU CRAZY, I dont have the cash to pay you if I wreck this car) but evil me went on and accelerated the car and guess what happened? The dashboard blinked RED, like in knight rider warning Michael to stop the car. (I LOVE YOU City Safety)
I have to say I am really a Volvo fan, cause for me Volvo was never about the looks but for it’s safety features.
Here is a Fun Fact, Did you know that Volvo pioneered or rather INVENTED the three point seat belt and never patented it, because they wanted to share the safety of its ingenuity to rest of the world. KUDOS guys
I am totally sold when I saw the digital dashboard that comes standard (swooning all over), the new customizable Active TFT crystal display in the instrument cluster is amazingly impressive, The dash and interior of the new Volvo V40 are really nice and points out the “Design around you”-concept perfectly. It’s very easy to customize the instrument cluster to the color you want and it’s a very cool feature in my opinion. The 3 standard modes (or better said: themes) are: Elegance (brownish), Eco (blue/green) and Performance (red)
Check me out getting in-tuned with the customizable dashboard , Now that’s what I call showing off the leopards spots.
Isaac’s 2 cents worth on Volvo V40 Crossroad
- Customizable digital dashboard
- Car feels sturdy even on top speed (ok dont tell the cops I went 210kmph)
- Volvo’s design is sure a thumbs up
- In build LED eye lid
- Lots of customization for the Volvo
- Cabin is so quiet (super plus point for me)
- Roof Rail comes standard
- Panaromic roof
- Reaction of the throttle response is very good
- All the Safety features of the car comes standard (except for the pedestrian air bag which comes optional)
- Not a Real SUV
- The car would be compact size in my category.
- 4wd version but only an option in the T5
- Cost, Cost and Costly (but if you can afford it, TOTALLY WORTH every Penny)
So if you still think Volvo is for the older folks ?? check out how FIERCE a Volvo can get, Freaking Sweedes are making some serious cars here I approve, certainly wont be finding this one in the Ikea catalog!
Well anyway, don’t take my word for it, Do visit Volvo’s showroom at
Wearnes Automotive Pte. Ltd.

Have you ever wondered what you want to be when you grow up ?
Are we suppose to know what we want to be when we grow up? like when you are 6 years old and the teacher asked you in class.. (insert name) what do you want to be when you grow up? and (insert name) says I want to be a Astronaut, Race Car Driver.. etc..etc.. Well I sure hell don’t know what I still want to be now. Life has so many possibilities and its so dynamic that it changes every now and then. We are a person that has so many factors affecting us everyday in our life decision.
We can plan and arm ourselves with goals and aspiration but things affect us like family, friends, time, strangers, forums and now even worst.. this thing called the “INTERNET” . I can tell you internet is a sure wonder of the world, heck Award it the NOBLE PRIZE for all I know, without it you wouldn’t be able to read this right now. The internet sure has gotten us all up to speed in fact too fast for my liking. Life is not slowing down. People are not spending enough time with their families, children and friends.
I am not sure if you realize this, but I feel that everyone these days are so impatient. On the walking pathway, on the road.. etc..etc.. I do blame this on the connectivity of Internet that we have. Remember how we receive our mails in the past? not electronic for sure but snail mail, wasn’t it a joy when you got your hand written mail to you from your pen pal from another country (do they still have that). These days its just WHAM BAM THANK MA’AM no thanks to Skype, Viber, Tango, Kik, Chat Roulette, Google Voice, Grasshopper, VoXoX, Vbuzzer.. I can go on and on with just VoIP and I have not started with the instant messaging. The art of hand written letters are long gone,
Everything seems so instant, Does the word “Stop and smell the roses” means anything anymore? I see families with many kids but parents that has no time to play with them. I see friends living in the same town but yet only manage to meet up on their BUSINESS trips in other countries. I see neighbors but I don’t see smiles. What’s Happening World ?? really What’s Happening?
Just expressing this feeling I have in my heart, I want to share “The Paradox of Our Age” with you.
So please take some time off, spend it with the people dearest to you, have a good look at them, cherish the moment. What ever hatred you have with them forgive and forget. Life is too short for all the squabble and fights.
Life is not all about making BIG Bucks but rather spending BIG Laughter with your loved one. Do share , reblog , re-tweet , stumbleupon if you agree with “The Paradox of Our Age” some where along the line.

It’s no secret that if you’re overweight, you’re going to suffer from a number of negative health risks. Everything from high blood pressure to the development of diabetes to a higher incidence of stroke can be linked to being obese or overweight, and the numbers are rising in terms of obesity in nearly all states.
But, one connection that sometimes goes overlooked is that of body fat levels to your cholesterol levels.
Let’s take a closer look at what this is all about. If possible try to go for a check up on your triglyceride level. I know I have not done a full body check up since like forever. I know I will be needing to book one soon and hope you do to.
The Diet That You’re Eating
The very first thing that you need to consider regarding your body fat level and how it relates to your cholesterol is how you gained that body fat in the first place – the diet that you eat daily. Those who are quite obese and who are carrying an excess of body fat often got this way because they are eating far too much fast and convenience food (or I would like to call it processed food).
They didn’t get that way because their diet was too full of fresh fruits and vegetables along with whole grains and lean proteins as these foods are naturally lower in calories and you just wouldn’t eat enough of them to accumulate that degree of excess body fat. Because of the types of foods they’re eating, this means they will have higher intakes of saturated fat and cholesterol, therefore this will cause their overall cholesterol level to go up.
While in a few very rare cases if someone was feasting on healthy fats (such as consuming high quantities of nuts, nut butters, and healthy oils) each day in addition to their usual diet that could cause them to become overweight without suffering high cholesterol, those cases are far in between.
The Lack Of Exercise
The second major reason why being overweight or obese can cause you to have high cholesterol levels is because the second thing that most of these individuals are doing is not exercising.
Being overweight is attributed to too many calories coming in while too few calories are going out. This is accomplished through that higher calorie diet along with the lack of physical activity to burn those excess calories off. Those who are exercising regularly and who are still at a slightly higher body weight may not see nearly the same degree of blood cholesterol levels as those who aren’t.
Exercise does help to combat high cholesterol levels so this on its own will definitely provide some benefits.
Even still, if you’re exercising but eating a diet high in saturated fat you’re still going to be running into problems as far as your overall cholesterol profile goes.
So there you have the information you need about the connection between having high body fat levels and having a high cholesterol level. It’s vital that you do take your body fat level seriously so that you can gain control over it and avoid all the negative health consequences that come with high cholesterol.
Fauja Singh with the Olympic Torch during the relay. Picture: Thomas Fuchs
A man believed to be the world’s oldest marathon runner has announced that he is to run his last marathon in February.
(From left) Jordan Andrew and Fauja Singh during the Olympic Torch relay. Picture: Thomas Fuchs
Fauja Singh, 101, of Goodmayes will run the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon.
Last year he became the country’s oldest Olympic torchbearer during the relay, and he also took the flame when it was in London in the run up to the 2004 Athens Games.
Fauja started his career as a marathon runner at the age of 89 and ran last year’s London Marathon in a time of seven hours, 49 minutes.
Speaking of the secret to a long life, he said: “I am told vegetarians tend to live an average of six to 10 years longer than meat-eaters do.
“Age may bring wisdom, but if you want stamina, endurance and a lifetime of good health, turn to nutritious vegetarian foods.
“I attribute my longevity to simple Punjabi vegetarian foods, such as chapati, dal, sabji and saag.”
The year 2012 has ended, I have to say that 2012 was a tough journey for me with many high and lows, maybe the prediction of the Feng Shui saying that my zodiac year for 2012 will not be good and maybe its true. I wouldn’t say its all that bad. I would say there was more high than low for me , with the coming 2013. I am praying that it will be better.
My birthday just passed, mum, dad and E always celebrates this special celebration of birth with me at home, that is how I celebrate my bday with much peace and quiet maybe that is how I want it? its been many years now that it have been celebrating my birthday with my loved one at home.. counting down either in another country or at home but never at parties or countdown festival, and yes if you are reading it right my birthday falls on the end of the year where Billions of people celebrate with me (that is how I would like to think of it..LOL)
This coming 2013 there will be changes, and this changes to be made will be big or I would say HUGE.. lets just say I am on a journey to the unknown, do wish me good luck and if everything is in order it definitely will change my life for good or bad I don’t know, all I know now is that I will still continue to strive to help beginner runners (wanting to run), people who wanna be triathletes by motivating them this 2013.

About TERRY FOX RUN
The Terry Fox Run is named in honour of Terry Fox, a Canadian amputee runner, who attempted to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. The Terry Fox Run is now an international tradition with countries around the world staging annual events in support of Terry’s dream of finding a cure for cancer. In keeping with Terry’s dream, the Terry Fox Runs are volunteer-led, inclusive, non-competitive and have no corporate sponsors.
Terry was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and raised in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, a community near Vancouver on Canada’s west coast. An active teenager involved in many sports, Terry was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) and forced to have his right leg amputated 15 centimetres above the knee in 1977.
While in hospital, Terry was so overcome by the suffering of other cancer patients, many of them young children, he decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. He would call his journey the Marathon of Hope. It was a journey Canadians have never forgotten.
After 18 months of running over 5,000 kilometres to prepare, Terry started his run in St. John’s, Newfoundland on April 12, 1980 with little fanfare. Although it was difficult to garner attention in the beginning, enthusiasm soon grew, and the money collected along his route began to mount. He ran 42 kilometres a day through Canada’s Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario. An entire nation was stunned and saddened when, on September 1st, after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres, Terry was forced to stop running near Thunder Bay, Ontario. Cancer had appeared in his lungs.Terry passed away on June 28, 1981 at the age 22.
A Canadian hero was gone, but his legacy was just beginning.To date, close to $S700 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry’s name through the annual Terry Fox Runs held across Canada and around the world.

Well million of other fans loves and adore it but definitely not me

Anyway I wanna share this hot off the press news on this Amazing New Nike GS2 boots
Nike GS 2 boot delivers seamless ball control, low environmental impact
Nike Football’s lightest, fastest and greenest production boot features All Conditions Control (ACC) for enhanced ball control in both wet and dry conditions.
SINGAPORE, 27 NOVEMBER 2012 – Today Nike Football unveils the second generation of its Nike GS boot, the Nike GS2 – the lightest, fastest production boot Nike has ever made and the most environmentally friendly boot available. Nike GS2 also features All Conditions Control (ACC) technology, which delivers enhanced ball control in both dry and wet weather conditions.
The Nike GS2 will be worn by some of Europe’s best young players including Theo Walcott, Eden Hazard, Raheem Sterling, Mario Goetze, Christian Eriksen and El Shaarawy. The new boot features a classic black and white upper that contrasts with bold All Conditions Control (ACC) insignia with a safari print found on some of Nike’s most iconic shoes.
The Nike GS 2 boot is constructed using renewable and recycled materials, designed for explosive performance on the pitch and lower impact on the planet. Every component has been optimized to reduce weight and waste, creating Nike’s lightest football boot ever at 160 grams (size 9).
Conceived and engineered in Italy, the Nike GS 2 features recycled and renewable materials throughout the upper and plate design. A bio-based traction plate made primarily from castor beans ensures strength and flexibility on pitch, alongside a sock liner made from 100 percent castor beans. The boot laces, lining and tongue are made from a minimum of 70 percent recycled materials. The toeboard and collar feature at least 15 percent recycled materials.
All Conditions Control (ACC) technology is created by a special treatment during the development of the upper materials to deliver a consistent feel on the ball at all times.
The Nike GS 2 includes the following performance, recycled and renewable materials in the new boot:
Traction plate and stud configuration:
Nike GS 2 traction plate combines a high performance chassis with a strong responsive and agile form. The sole plate is made of 50 percent renewable Pebax® Rnew (a plant derived material made with 97 percent castor beans) and 50 percent TPU, made from renewable materials.
The traction plate includes a minimalist diamond-silhouette spine, which provides optimal flex and agility in plate performance.
Anatomically positioned studs maximize speed in multiple directions to ensure responsive and assured movement on pitch.
Touch and control:
A solvent-free Kanga-Lite synthetic toe box provides zonal reinforcement for exceptional touch and control. The synthetic upper also supports lockdown on midfoot and arch area.
All Conditions Control (ACC) is a special treatment during the development of Kanga-Lite that delivers an optimal touch and feel of the ball in all conditions.
The lightweight sockliner has no topcloth or screening, eliminating additional weight, materials and processing.
Stability and support:
Anatomical and asymmetrical heel counter and heel bucket locks the foot down for stability and support. The counter is made of Pebax® Rnew, derived from castor bean oil.
Nike GS 2 will be available to pre-order from November 23 and to purchase on December 1 on Nike.com.
Nike GS 2 retails at SGD $399 at Weston Corporation from 1 December
It was a night of exclusivity for Nespresso on that Friday, exclusive invite-only soiree for many celebrities and selected people. It’s not called the Nespresso 2% for no reason. Every Nespresso loving fan would have killed to have themselves invited for this event. It was a night of letting your hair loose and have unlimited coffee and delectable finger food.
Venue for the Nespresso 2% event was held at this quaint gallery hidden away on 28th Fevrier at Jalan Kilang, There was even a valet waiting to park your car when you arrive. All I can say is that it is only befitting for such an event like this.
They had this cute little game where you need to stack the capsules together to win a prize, I tried and I was the winner of this (NOT) I only manage a measly 3 stacked .. Su had like nine stacked .. I heard the REAL winner had 13 capsuled stacked back to back. Well I am sure he already had like 4 cups of espresso before his attempt
Food .. glorious food, ok don’t be drooling on your keyboard now
What really was cute was that they had built two counters with raw ingredients like Chocolate, pineapple bits, vanilla, rose essence, and the Nespresso Citiz machine standing by for you to make your coffee concoction, Cute barista was stationed to assist while you browse for all the Nespresso recipe on the screen available. Elysia choose the Ice Caramel Coffee with Caramel Drizzle. Taste like a Ice Caramel Machiato but with deeper coffee essence (just the way I like it)
for more delicious recipes you can always Nespresso
Vodka laced coffee.. or was it the other way round, for me to know for you to find out.
Nespressotini check out the video of how Mark prepares the Nespressotini
#slaphead I just realized that in the end of the video I can’t even remember the name of drink Mark was preparing which was Nespresso Martini after
Seven One glass. Coffee and Alcohol are not meant to be paired together since I am a Nespress coffee and Absolut Vodka lover.
I swear I was only drinking coffee (That is all)
Jack and Rai party with us at the Nespresso event. would like to Thank Nespresso for providing this opportunity for having me at this wonderful event
This 2% was just the start of something even bigger, for more information do visit http://www.nespresso.com
Last weekend, I was invited to for a event where Timberland Watches was in collaboration with Safra,This collaboration was called the SAFRA TIMBERLAND 40,000m Challenge.

It’s been a crazy month for me with my training for all my runs especially the upcoming TNF50, If you guys didn’t know I sprained the sole of my foot on my regular weekend training three weeks ago. I feel terrible and I feel depressed to be honest.
I don’t wish for any athlete to be (more…)
Training partners are always great in terms of being motivated and seeking advise.. no matter doing triathlon, Ironman or Ultra running, that is why I frequently used this hashtag #foreveralone cause I am more often than not alone when doing training.
Training for an event demands much from an athlete such as mental focus and more importantly discipline in all aspect of schedule, diet and workout.
I met Zurairi by chance, one day when I was training but I will not expound on that part, as he already had explain of our moment in his featured article. Do read up on his write-up as guest post on his determination to be a Triathlete (if you say you can’t, this post might change you) Do follow him on Twitter @arieternity where he shares his passion for triathlon.

My Journey to be Triathlete
After my Kidney Transplant in 2008, (Previous post) , I decided to exercise because my doctor told me to control my cholesterol level. I also wanted to exercise because keeping fit and healthy will ensure lesser complications due to my condition. After 3 months rest from the post operation, I realise my fitness level is very low after I was struggling and panting after climbing the flight of steps at the overhead bridge. I realise that I need to start soon.
I started with very light jogging around my neighbourhood. It was about 1.2km route around my block of flats. My friend also introduced me to swimming. Mr Razib is a triathlete and he taught and coached me the techniques of swimming freestyle. In 2008, I started (more…)
One day Fab the next day Fad this is the evolution of modern fitness by http://www.todaysfitnesstrainer.com/trends-fitness-evolution-modern-fitness/
It was amusing to see how many of them fitness regime that has come and go. This compilation fitness evolution is very good
People are suckers when it comes to fitness, if one celebrity goes on diet and clearly shows that the weight-loss is a miracle worker, 80% of people would want to try it cause it SHOWS, that is why beauty magazine is a NO NO, it only make you depress
Do you self a favor, write down your fitness goal, be it walking / running 10km or 100km, just write it down and pin it up somewhere visible to you, work towards that fitness goal and am sure you will (at least try) be fitter and feel better. I sure am not the fittest before in school, being called fat kid was a norm. I have no hard feelings, I am who I am.
Getting a fabulous body is not everything, its getting FITTER, please know the difference.
Some people are sized differently but they (more…)
What time does your body clock say?
If you’re a busy mom – or anyone who achieves a lot – you may be used to pushing yourself hard, even through periods of exhaustion. You may know that you’re a high energy person in the morning or a super-efficient night owl. If you feel your energy change the day, you may assume it’s because you couldn’t sleep, you’re working too hard, or your blood sugar is low. And those factors may indeed be at play.
But there’s another reason, called your circadian rhythm. And if you’re not tuned in to this natural body rhythm – or those of the people around you – it’s time to put this idea to work. For example, if you’re a parent, you may know that kids tend to melt down in the late afternoon. If you know there is a biological reason for that, you can plan around it.
All living things have a built-in 24-hour pattern of activity. Working off cues such as light or the timing of meals, this rhythm regulates everything in our body, from when hormones peak and we feel sleepy to how high our blood pressure is — even the time of day we have the most muscle strength.
But there’s more… Ever wonder how you can feel sleepy, but it eventually passes and you feel more energized? Within our circadian rhythm, we also have predictable 90- to 120-minute energy cycles, from sleepy to alertness.
How to rock around your clock
1. Map your energy rhythms. Observe how you feel throughout the day and note your personal peaks and valleys. (A shot of E6 can help you move through the lows, because let’s face it, the world can’t always wait!)
2. Plan your challenges: If you know you’re a morning person, put your heavy-lifting tasks at the top of your day. Schedule breaks for when you know your energy is low. You can even plan meetings at work or activities with kids around natural body rhythms — and make things timelier for everybody.
I did my final paper about a “No Smoking Campaign” I was from a PR background and I wanted to write something that was close to my heart, and boy did I went ballistic with the stats and numbers, I went all over government bodies, NGO and smokers. Compiling data and research from past years and each of its campaign.
All I can say is that smokers are winning this war (Sigh) and people are just not worried about the effect of smoking and their health. I really hope that I can make a change in people’s life, so far thankfully I come from a family that do not smoke and are pretty much sports loving background. Mom was a sprinter for her school days, Dad was a tennis player and manager for the state club, 2 Sister was a tennis player and softball player representing the school. I was playing tennis for my club and representing state for my cycling days. So I am pretty proud that we don’t smoke and are all pretty healthy.
I hope people will change and I do believe that doing sports will curb your addiction to smoking, I respect the decision that you decided to smoke, but do you think its beneficial? carefully think about it.
Gonna share with you this advert that (more…)
Don’t take your health to seriously ? well sometimes you need to because its good for you.. If you wanna lose weight, simple, just watch what you eat, if you want to look good, get fit. Fitness and watching what you eat is truly a great combination. I believe in it 100%
Think those diet pill and slimming centre is going to help you? I don’t think so, in fact it might do more harm. Yeah I know the magazine articles telling you that this and that diet product works and everything, or even maybe this and that fitness product to cut your tummy or tight is a miracle worker,
The only way I feel to lose weight and ensure it stays off is LIFESTYLE Change .. be discipline and you will be rewarded with renewed energy!
