Of disruptive trainings and kampua noodles...

The haze seems playing hide and seek with us. There were days when it was so bad that I gotta do my runs in the gym, which was packed with people. The treadmills were all full house and I gotta wait for my turn in order to be able to run. And, I dislike running  too long on a treadmill as I usually ends by 5 KM. It's too boring already though I can do some pace runs like 4 * 400 meters in a fast pace. However, I usually just do a 5KM run after a strength workout and leave for home. Then, on a nice day where the haze decided to take an 'off-day', I will try to take the opportunity to run outdoors.

Anyway, this episode of haze has somewhat affected my humble training for my half-marathon scheduled in early Dec for the Standard Chartered run. Hopefully, the situation will improve as days goes by... It got better today and yesterday and I managed to do some outdoor runs. I really enjoyed the fresh air , especially after the rain in the evening and had my wish come true yesterday night. A treadmill run is still not as enjoyable and good as an outdoor run.

Last Sunday, I patronized the newly open branch of Let's Eat restaurant at Taman Johor Jaya. The menu is basically the same as their Taman Molek branch but they included a few items here. There was some nyonya kuihs as well as kampua noodles. I heard a lot of this noodle and glad to see it on a menu. Thus, I ordered it. I am not sure how the good ones tasted like but I do love the texture and springiness  of the noodles. It was nice and great to have some wantons there too!

  6. yeah the haze was very bad the past week but I think it is getting a lot better now.. having said that, the measure of air pollution index is different in MY and SG.. MY air is always "healthier" than SG due to the index albeit breathing the same air.. xD

  7. better to cut down outdoor activities if the air condition is not good.. hmmm, true enough for people who likes marathon and running outdoor, stuck on the treadmill in the gym would be so boring, but no choice la~~:)

  9. I am curious which gym you hang out? It seems small as you always had to wait for treadmills and even shower cubicles! I am happy the haze is almost gone today. Hope it will not come back again, shoo it to the south!!!! Wakakaka

  12. It is true that bad days when haze hits the town, the gym was so occupied, especially the treadmill. I had the same problem in my gym. Sigh!

  13. Iced tea for a change?? The noodle looked good. More like wanton mee to me.

    Hope the haze episode will end soon. Something we are not so look forward to.
