Brooks Half Marathon 2014

Yup, that's right folks... as for one of my 2014 resolution, it would be stopping myself into partaking any more running events. Over the period of 365 days in 2013, I've ran about 15 events, that's like more than a run events per month.
However due to my absence in the running scene for a month quite recently, well bad habit don't die down eh? well I've enrolled once again for another half marathon organized by Brooks Malaysia.



The event will be held at Bukit Jalil, the same place where the event took placed this year as well... speaking of Brooks 2013 event, it was poorly organized with a puny trophy cup instead of a proper medal. Overcrowded runner in small path ways, bad P.A system, insufficient water stations, lazy design of finisher-t , and etc... which kinda tarnish Brooks name, but they did jump the gun and blame it on the organizing team instead.

2013 swag


Brooks apologize for marathon 2013 -  http://brooksmalaysia.com/2013/03/29/brooks-half-marathon-2013-report/

But let bygones be bygones, aside from the bad organizing this year, I'm hoping next year event would be far more decent due to its hefty price of RM 75!

Route is just the same like this year as well.


Anyway can't complain much, will be doing this and maybe Penang Bridge run as well for 2014. So till then... peace out!

2013?

After many many moons of not updating my blog, I've came to a conclusion at the brink of closing it down, or leaving it to rot...



but turn of events, I should start picking it up back where I've left off. Now, now let's not get so mushy mushy and personal. It's a blog for what I feel like sharing the stuff I take interest on and what I feel for the sake of sharing it... wait did I said it twice? oh well as long its not too personal...Who know's things might get ugly, very ugly..

Quite recently I've been doing 1/4, 1/2 marathons, yea yea I know, skinny boy is doing more skinny things.... but hey do you know I haz the beer belly!! even on my mis-adventures of running, that stubborn fat really keeps on hugging to my dearest ABS.



Moving along, Been watching lot's of movies recently but just plain lazy on review most of em. (just caught Frozen, Police Story 2013 and Secret Life of Walter Mitty) might as well  blog about that in the weeks to come.


Had some ups and down in my personal life, didn't manage to get to where I wanted it to be but still making effort in working things out. (come on, everyone does have their ups and down.)


Recently daily for a past 2-3 months spending devoted time of mere 1 hour on some mild exercise. Probably I shall blog about that too after some result shown (fingers crossed). Plus some fundamental I've been staying faithfully.


Getting into mobile gaming, testing a few freemium games and also stringing my MMO cravings on Final Fantasy XIV.



All in all , for this year , the most precious thing that I've ever experienced is and without any regrets but a lesson to be is, "could it be your partner, a friend, pet bro or sis, they will eventually fail you. But never forget the closet thing is right under our nose which is, family. Thanks Mom for always been there for me, through thin or thick, sweet or sour, she is my dearest breath giver to my life over this mere 31 years. Really thank you form the bottom of my heart. No words can utterly explain how much gratitude I've owe her throughout the years.



Okay enough ramblings, close of getting too personal already. Cheerios and looking forward for 2 0 1 4, till then peace out.!!!  (saving my stuff for future post)

Police Story 2013: Oh Jackie


Manage to grab this screening to watch my man, Mr. Jackie Chan. Well, well firstly he did mention of retiring from action movies since his last movie, Chinese Zodiac 2013. However you know, we still love this 59 action kicking Chinese actor.



Do note this is a spin-off from the other police story movies where it tells a story of a police dad seeking her daughter in a town in China for reconciliation after a fiasco during his wife death at a hospital.



The scene start with a dramatic preview of the ending where Jackie is pulling a trigger of a gun to his head. Shocker right? spoiler at the beginning of the show. Well you be the judge after watching it to clearly understand why he did it so. Another shocker was , Jackie has a new hair cut! Probably to fit in as a China policemen criteria.



Surprisingly, the action in this movie has been considered milder compare to the previous installment of the franchise. However there is more of a darker feel towards the whole movie as well as the seriousness of dialog between antagonist and protagonist can be felt through out of the movie.



Most of the actors are from mainland China, therefore I've heard from a friend that they were pretty famous over there. As for some of their acting skills, certain times the fluidity of their character actions doesn't present well on the big screen.



All in all, I do like the moral of the story towards the end, where is all about past regrets which may not be fixed but to be a lesson learned. A bit of cheesy plot twisting as well but this might not be Jackie's best movie of the year but then again a more serious side from him on the big screen which is a plus side.



I would give this movie a 7/10 but for movie goers , I would recommend this as a rental instead to watch at home since the movie ticket price now of days is so bloody expensive lately!
