Standard Chartered KL Marathon | Seeing Is Believing

Wakin' up at 5am on a Sunday morning (okay, I snoozed 5 times and make that 6am) isn't really my forte. But what kept me pumped was definitely something worth the sacrifice! 

The annual Standard Chartered KL Marathon took place in the heart of Kuala Lumpur last Sunday, 24th June and about 28,000 participants ranging from amateurs to elite runners, and 1,400 runners from 40 different countries took part in the race [details taken from]. Can you imagine how huge this whole event was? And, I was definitely honored to be invited to run with the SEEING IS BELIEVING kids, again after the Fun Run held last month at Putrajaya. 

Due to the major road closures (literally the entire KL City) and I figured it was going to be a problem even getting into KL. And hence, Cheryl and I somehow came up with an alternative which I thought was brilliant. Parked our car at the Kelana Jaya LRT Station and took the train all the way to Masjid Jamek and then travelled on foot to Padang Merbok.   

But no, we weren't the only geniuses. The park car was full even before the sun rose. And the station was filled with SMURFS! (The blue shirts, and hence .. :P ) But its so great to see people actually waking up and making effort for the run, better still its for Charity! Kudos people x 


But I must admit, it was a whole new different experience to be taking the train (instead of the conventional way, driving in to KL) and walking in the midst of the concrete jungle. You don't get that very often, do you? Especially not KUALA LUMPUR. But kudos to the team for such efficiency. All the early warnings and heads-up(s) sure came into good use. We were provided a list of road closures even days before the marathon. If not for that, I would've been late for the run *thumbs up!

Dayang was a great running buddy. Couldn't ask for more! 

Praise the Lord, I completed the 5km run and came in 5th! Well, can't be compared to those who actually took part in the full-marathon/half-marathon. Cheryl made a good joke though, "Well, I think our run is probably the marathon divided by 5, or maybe more!". Haha I can't complain, it was certainly a great experience and I already cannot wait for the run next year.

Special message to Intan: I hope you're feeling well and recovering. Sad that you couldn't join us but I'm sure I'll be seeing you real soon!

Edgy Wed

[Short snappy post] 

Felt abit edgy today. Didn't wanna wear any of the plain white tees & that's when my Christian Audigier came in handy ;) Put on my biker's jacket and a black Armani jeans. If only I had my Harley Davidson to complete my look! 

Thank you momsy Ooi for the tee! Mad love! 


Totally dig this pair of Ed Hardy Forever Dydo Boots. 

One of those days when you feel like smiling isn't the way to go. Sometimes, faking a smile & move on is probably the only choice you have. I have so much gushing through my mind and yet, feeling totally incapable of doing them all at once. Anyway!

p/s: I hope the interview/audition went well. Keeping my fingers crossed. Can't wait to share the good news.

Hot Guys Who Cook | Diva Universal

"Fastest way to a man's heart is through his stomach", yep- the cliche saying that we've been bluntly following for the past few decades, no?  Since we are all living in the 21st century..what about a little change for us all ? We'll have HIM doing the cooking and we ladies, can finally lay back & relax. 

That, you'll have to find out yourself. Lucky me, I have experienced it myself, (well, probably not physically but visually) watching HOT GUYS WHO COOK during the premier at the Food Studio, Mont Kiara last week! 


18 gorgeous men from all over Asia have been selected to dish out their kitchen tricks to woo the ladies in DIVA's latest reality TV series, Hot Guys Who Cook. In every episode, the hotties will attempt to cook up a storm in the kitchen, bringing candid humor and making quick snappy meals as they spill  their dating tips and a whole lot of juicy stories. These hotties are amongst the famous faces in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and The Philippines. We ladies will have an array of hot 'dishes' from Deejay, Actors, TV hosts, a former F1 driver and models.

They're hot, they cook, so much fun- what else can we ladies ask for?

Food Studio: Very pretty ambience with complete cooking utensils and facilities.
I should consider taking up cooking classes there!

 Here's only the 3 out of the 18 hotties in the upcoming reality TV series Hot Guys Who Cook. 

Peter Davis 
This half English, half Chinese Malaysian model turned actor is a long way from home, having started his finance career back in England. Voted by MSN Malaysia as one of the top ten rising entertainment stars in 2009, and named by MSN Singapore as one of the 12 fighters who will take Southeast Asia in 2012, it remains to be seen if he can add chef to his ever growing resume! 

 After 15-years in the industry, this Thai-American host/model Utt might be considered well seasoned, but he's also served up to some of the most memorable moments on the small screen, as the host of music, entertainment, travel and supernatural shows, to many live events across the region.

George Young 
A lawyer by trade, this half Greek half Chinese model turned presenter has graced television screens in Britain and across Asia. This Singapore-based artiste recently finished a box-office run in the Bollywood film, Jhootha Hi Sahi and is busy keeping his schedule busy with an Asian film project, as well as with TV commercials and magazine stuffs. 

Very charming in person. George's pretty chatty and friendly too.

 Hot Guys Who Cook is a DIVA Original Production and will be premiering this coming 25th June, every Monday at 9pm. Ladies, get your couch and popcorn ready! These hotties will be cooking up a storm and make sure you're ready to deal with it ;)
