numb....

I have been training for the 10KM run lately, either on treadmills and on the roads but mainly on treadmills. I guess I will likely run for 4-5KM initially and then, repeatedly walk and run for the other 5KM while enjoying the sceneries and taking pictures... LOL. However, I noticed one of my legs always felt numb especially the feet and lower calf when I have ran for 30 mins. I was wondering could it due to the knee bands I was wearing which might be too tight. Well,need to do some research. Lina and other runners' blogger - Any advice? :)

I had lots of western food lately where I had one in Hard Rock just few days ago and another one at Swensen. I ordered a Sirloin Steak again which comes with a drink. Their steak is not bad though not the best, but it's good enough for lunch.

opps ... I signed up !

Oh ...I was back in Hard Rock cafe last Thursday for their set lunch in Resort World Sentosa. I always like their lunch set as it came with a nice soup, free-flow drinks, a Haagen Dazz ice-cream as well as the main course, which they have 2 or  3 choices for you to choose. And, my colleague and I were being served by a pretty lass. They always have gorgeous waitresses there.

I chose a vegetable soup over some green leafs salad for appetiser

Free-flow of drinks ... I had Ice lemon tea

My main course - Fish and Chips

And a delicious raspberry ice-cream from Haagen-Dazz
At the same time, I surprise everyone as well as myself for signing for the Standard Chartered Marathon in Singapore, which is to be held in Dec 7. And, great that two of my colleagues joined me but then, one of them is doing the full 42km marathon while my other colleague and I will be doing the mini marathon of 10KM...hehehe... Anyway, don't laugh yet as I usually can run only 5KM, thus, doing double of my 'limit' can considered a feat la... I will try to run 6KM in my trainings. :) It's considered a challenge for me though I always exercise but running long distance is another story.

Need more speed.....

Well, I upgraded my broadband last Monday and was real busy for the past few evenings, after my workouts. I almost slept at 1am+ every night. I seldom upgrade my broadband package and only did a re-contract each time with cheaper rates. However, at a slow speed of 25mbs and with so many packages out there where some even reaches 1Gbs, I decided to upgrade but still, to the cheapest plan that I can find. It's 100mbs only where compared to my 'speed hungry' friends, its considered quite modest. Anyway, with the new modem cum router device from Starhub, I was only able to hit 10-20mbs on wifi though I managed to get 100mbs by connecting with my notebook via a LAN cable. Thus, I got busy researching on how to improve the speed by checking on the forums and discussing with my friends. I decided to use my three year old router by bypassing the router function in the new device and it seems better, I got 40-50mbs. My old router can support up to 300mbs but still it cannot reached 100mbs. Thus, I learned some tips on fine tuning the speed of the router by downloading an app to analyse the busy channels that my router was running on and then I chose a less crowded channel. It slightly improved the speed but still not good enough. Thus, I guess the best option is to get a new speedier router but before I did that, my kind colleague decided to lend me his 1 year old spare router to try it out. I can buy from him at a half price if its works fine.

Meanwhile, after a long workout tonight, I decided to have a warm Sapporo Miso Tonkotsu Ramen.It's been a while since I had it and it's so nice to eat it again.


Have a good weekend, folks!!

Simple food for someone who lost a tooth ....

Finally I can eat with the other side of my mouth where the extraction took place last Saturday, though I tried to be careful and grind the food slowly. Thanks for all the well wishes in my previous post as well as sharing your stories on toothaches and fear of dentists. Its indeed therapeutic ! In fact, I noticed I have lost 1.5kg in three days, probably due to the light diet like porridge as well as simple diet like the below. My family and  I was at Teck Sing Restaurant in JB which is famous for their herbal chicken or known locally as 'paper wrap chicken' with the locals. The chicken meat was soft since it was steamed with herbs and it really absorbed all the fragrances of the herbs, which makes it very delicious. This is a must ordered dish whenever we are there. I was also interested in their curry fish head which a lot of folks ordered but I guess I have to leave that for the next trip.

This restaurant has been in JB for a very long time and also very popular with Singaporeans, as it was just a short drive from the Woodlands CIQ, at Taman Sentosa. It's very difficult to find a parking there too!

The herbal or paper wrap chicken

Other than the chicken, we ordered mostly simple and soft food like the below. It's also good for the children to have something easily digestible.

Long beans cooked with meat

I love their bean sprout...yummy

And this is especially for me - Japanese tofu with mushrooms.
My appetite is back but hope I can maintained the weight that I have lost! LOL...

Wrong timing!!!

 I travelled to Seremban to celebrate my father in law's birthday last Saturday during the Hari Raya Haji's long weekend, and it seems a good weekend but a breakfast spoilt everything. I was having a simple breakfast with coffee and bun only but somehow, one of my wisdom tooth seems bit on something hard in the bread. There was no pain yet as I finished my breakfast but that side of the tooth gradually beginning to exhibit some sensitive kind of pain and after a little while, it began to pain. Since we needed to go to Seremban, I got myself some pain killers hoping that it will go away and might be gum problems. However, the pain affected me and I asked my wifey to take over the wheels when we were around Yong Peng.

The toothache started showing its menacing side when I reached Seremban at my in law's place. It got more and more painful and I needed to take two Panadol Actifast to control it. It helps for 2 - 3 hours and it came back. I tried Panadol 650 and its also the same. There were no dentists over the long weekend too. I even woke up in the middle of the night due to the excruciating pain and have to take painkillers in the middle of the night.

Back to JB and I quickly called my dentist and oh man ... he was on leave till Nov. Thus, I gotta go to another clinic which always gave me the shivers somehow.  I guess probably it's due to their ambience or something. Consulted the dentist and it was confirmed it's my wisdom tooth which needed to be extracted. However, the dentist refused to extract yet as the tooth was still painful and instead gave me antibiotics, anti-swollen medications and stronger painkillers. It was a tough three days as I was getting more and more nervous waiting for the procedure on last Saturday. It's been a long while since I had my last extraction and I was really nervous about it. And, well its finally done.

Meanwhile, I discovered a newly open Japanese restaurant at Permas Jaya and decided to try it. I didn't note down the restaurant name.

Ebiko Sushi for my kids

Sake Maki - my favourite sushi. 

Miso Ramen for my wife and little princess

Teriyaki Salmon for my kid

And, Shioyaki salmon bento set for me
The food seems good, and I may visit this restaurant again! And, I have to eat my bento and sushi at one side of my mouth!
