Was told to report at sharp 4pm @ Bar Madrid, Jaya One. So, packed my bag & left home at 3.15pm. I wanna be there early as I'm not too sure of the actual location. Was lucky to get a cab but goossshhhhhhh that traffic!!!! 10 minutes to 4pm and the cab just turned into Jalan Universiti. Thought I 'd be on time but, oh NO! Made that wrong turn to Damansara & heavy traffic due to the Malaysia Boleh most famous road widening project. So near yet so far . .. .. .... sigh . . .
2 more minutes . . . . less than 20 meter in front I asked the contractor to remove the closure for us to make a U-TURN! Whoa lucky he bought my story (that I am late for a life or death competition . . . . wakakakakaaaaa) . . . ..
I was on time for the reporting but I wasn't the last to report. Pueh Tian & Khoo Yit Kiat were there & we just hang around waiting for the gun off time. While waiting we saw Alice from Wonderland strolling in to the reporting counter ;P
hhmmmmm.... is she going to run in that??
Tigers on shopping spreeeeeee......... go go go !!!!
1st task - tweeting @ HQ pub
After each task, we have to run half a circle round the complex for the 2nd, 3rd ........ and collect all 4 stickers & some Tiger Beer souvenirs at each check point. At one of the joints, we were made to eat that darn spicy chicken wing that almost got me choke . . .aarrrrggggghhh :(
Chilled Tiger beers on the house . . . .. ..
There was a lion dance performance. Snapped some photos of the tiger . . . . yeahhhhh thats the whole purpose of this run - to let the hair down & have FUN
The 3 lucky winners of the rm8,888 Dream Prize - CONGRATULATIONS!
The whole evening (after the race) sharing the same table enjoying the beer, food and sharing his humility but didn't cross my mind a tiny bit about him. He was such a friendly, down-to-earth guy. Great personality, humurous, jovial, friendly & chatting away the evening like good old friends.
Yup . . . thats Kris Law. Who?
So, I log on to his blog on late Sunday . . . . . . . what a nuts I'd been? Really? So, I did a little research (well this is definitely not me coz' I am not a movie maniac & I'm a no-no busy-body). Out of curiosity, i ran a google search to confirm his 'claims'. . . . . . . and . . . .
Just wonder if he will mail me a copy of these movies if I request for one? Yeah, he is a good writer too. So, do drop by his blog at http://krislaw.blogspot.com/ to view his blogging & get closer to this talented down-to-earth young man.
I dropped out of Putrajaya Marathon and opted for the Tiger Run instead because I haven't really recover from my cold & I doubt I can complete my marathon without doing more damage to my health. So, I just hope perhaps I could get one of those small prizes from Tiger Beer since there are only 88 participants.
But, I supposed God works in a miraculous way as the race was a total new experience in my running years. This time around I was in touch with so many young & talented bloggers instead of runners! Weird, ya . . . .
What a Great way of ushering in the Year of Tiger . . . . . . sharing the joy of a running friend who won his dream prize & meeting so many young, talented, vibrant & positive minded people!
Thanks to Pueh Tian (runwitme) for sharing
Thanks Tiger Beer & Nuffnang for a great start for the Year of Tiger!!!
