It's very sad when someone whom you're once so close with, someone you appreciate so so much, is now nothing but a stranger to you.
The most familiar kind of stranger.
This post is so sad it needs no title.

It was my 2nd time riding up to Balik Pulau yesterday, and fuhhhhhh!!! It felt great. =)
Unlike my first time, which I struggled all the way, started with a slight pull on the inner thigh, to cramping calves and toes; then I had to stop twice because both my legs were cramping so badly that my toes were on top of one another (very hard to explain laaa).
But this time, even though it was tiring and still teeth clenching, I didn't stop. I just keep pedalling and repeating to myself: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me - Philippians 4:13. And true enough, I did. =) On the way up, I received so many thumbs up from fellow cyclists, and that was the little little encouragement I needed. Google maps said my route takes 37 minutes drive and is a total of 22.7km to reach Balik Pulau market; Dreamer's meter said the same about the distance (minus 1 or 2 kilometers), and I took 45 minutes to cycle up there. Not bad what right..? =)
I wish I could show you the beautiful sunset scenery I saw while riding up Balik Pulau, but sadly I was in such a rush to training I couldn't stop to take any pictures. Next week perhaps..? =)
So my legs are super jelly now. It's jelly-er than jelly beans. =P I've been trying to walk elegantly at work today while having sore thighs and jelly knees. Cycling up to Balik Pulau for floorball state training, then some physical workouts.... Fuhhhhhhh. =) K.O. Really K.O.ed. However, it was a satisfying night as I proved myself stronger than I thought.
Now fingers crossed that my girls can go for Merdeka Cup, so we can go to KL and claim back what's ours:

Dreamer has been complaining to me why didn't I show her off with her new wheels, so here's a post dedicated to her. =P
Dreamer has recently been "blessed" with a set of 2nd hand full carbon wheelset
while I burn a hole in my pocket. And I would like to take this opportunity to thank a very good friend for giving up the wheels at a very good price for me. =) And that fella is none other than Deswyn. Talking about Des, it is actually because of him I was exposed to floorball in the first place. But let's not make him feel too good about himself if not later he show off. =P
Anyway, back to the story, Des is now in Kindu, Congo for work. Why Congo? Follow his blog to learn more about his adventures and dreams. =) And because of that reason, he has entrusted Maddog under my care and also sold Maddog's wheels to me.
[Ma new babies. They make me fly.]
Everybody say Hi to my pup - Brownie!! =) Emo la that dog.
[Maddog & Dreamer before the switch of wheels]
I actually switched my wheels and put it unto Maddog, not exactly appropriate, cos it's like putting a Perodua Kancil's wheels onto a Ferrari. =.=" But it's better than leaving Maddog wheel-less, paralyzed and immobile. =( No no no. Can't do. So til Maddog's master gets him a set of new wheels, he has to hang on to my humble wheels first. =)
[Meet Dreamer with her new wheels]
Ain't she sexy?! ;)
[Mom took this picture of me when I was getting ready for my ride =) ]
The new wheels indeed felt sooooooooo good. Smoother, faster, lighter, sexier and yeng-er. Haha!! Just makes riding 10 times more interesting. =)
1 more month to my first 85km. *Nervous*

But still, thought you deserve this birthday shout out. =)
Still showing off your Mont Blanc wallet ey? Haha. =)
I know you've been really busy with work lately, and it's really tough and all, but remember that your strength comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. And when you get frustrated with work or your employees, think about my embarrassing car park incident or the rugby action. Hehehe. =)
I lift up my eyes to the mountains
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip.
He who watches over you will not slumber,
indeed, He who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you,
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm,
He will watch over your life;
The Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
My prayer for you, His promise, your source of strength.
Once again, Happy belated birthday, Captain Awesome. =) Loves.
