Race pack collection for Sundown ...

I always enjoyed those major marathons race pack collection (REPC). They always held in fabulous places like Suntec City or Expo and it's very orgasnised, with lots of exhibition booths on sports stuffs, where I can go around to visit after collecting my race pack. Well, thank God I felt better with my injury and managed a 12KM run last Thursday without much problem. So, I guess I will be running my second Sundown Half-Marathon after all, without much expectations except to finish the race and get the medal. And, yes, I will have to sleep during the day before and after the race, on Sat and Sun cos I be 'doing night shift' on Saturday night/Sun wee morning...LOL. The good news is I will be on my mid-year leave after the run.


A nice screen advert to welcome the runners at Suntec City for the race pack collection

Entrance to the exhibition hall and REPC. I was an early bird where I reached t here at 11+am on the first day. They opened at 11am.

At the 21KM booths, not so crowded then!

The short queue with lots of counters opened. I always collect my REPC on  the first day to avoid the crowd, I only waited about 10 mins.

Time to check out the exhibition booths

More booths, I got myself two energy bars for the run

Somehow, this year has lesser booths compared to last year and some prominent brands are missing, but I still enjoyed going around. 
After I am done with the REPC, I decided to go to Paparich in Suntec for lunch as I needed to rush to a meeting nearby. This is my first time in Singapore's Paparich, so I thought it's a good idea to check it out. The services was good and the ambience seems nice until more crowd pack the restaurant during lunch time. It's definitely more expensive there if we compared with the exchange rate with RM else, it's almost the same price but in S$.


My cuppa coffee, I think Malaysia's Paparich coffee is better though this one not too bad,

And, a fried rice with fried chicken and egg for me. 
My meal cost me around S$22. And, will forward for my first night race in 2016 this Sat. I did enjoyed my last night run in 2015. Have a good week!

    1. Yalor!!! Over RM60!!! Maybe they have standard prices - RM22 here, SGD22 there...and Australia AUD22 too. Used to be like that at places like McD or KFC last time. RM6 in Malaysia, 6 pounds in the UK. Sure pengsan, if convert.

    2. But even if RM22 for that, I must say it is already too expensive. Never mind, people earning SGD, very the kaya. Hehehehehehe!!!!!

    3. I think even in Malaysia , paparich is not cheap. And that's one reason I seldom patronize in JB ... Hahahah.. Though I love their kopi.
