After the run ...

I was having a mental block yesterday as to what to post for my blog and thus, delay my next post till tonight, while I chilled out surfing the net yesterday. After my run last Sunday, I am back to my routines where I workout as usual from Monday onwards as well as managed to ran 5KM on Monday and Tuesday, though my thighs and calf muscles still sore. Lots of folks congratulated me as though as I finished a full marathon. hahah... I also played badminton tonight and it was kinda tiring as there are only 4 players, for 2 hours. Anyway, have had a good workout and will be resting next week where I will be on leave.

Meanwhile, during lunch today, I had the Singapore Hokkien Mee which I didn't eat it for quite some time. Mixed the sambal and the lime drops with the noodles together and it was so good and delicious, especially when it is hot. With the dried out banana leaf at the bottom, it makes the dish even more appetising. It will be great if the prawns are bigger where somehow, the prawns and sotongs are hidden here. 


OK, a short post for today!:)

  1. Ooooooo...Singapore Hokkien mee!!! I love that so so so much!!! I love it even more when served in the dried leaf (it's not banana lah, some palm leaf or something - quite hard one) like that - they also use it to tapao the mee and just tie with a string, very environment friendly. Gee!!! This brings me back to 1973 - miss it so so so much!!!!

  8. It's not the distance but the courage to start and finish that matters, Chris.

    Congrats again on your maiden 10K race. :)
