New toys for old car

Last night I bought new toys for my old car. First item, a new Car Entertainment Head Unit (Kenwood KDC-MP3036AX). Second item, a new car security alarm (Viper 350HV). Both my old Sony CD player/radio and Crimestopper car alarm didn't work anymore and since it's more than 9 years old, I guess I just replace it.

I love the front AUX input. Now I can just connect my iPod using cable to the player. Don't need the FM transmitter.

As for the new security alarm, it have a cool blue LED status indicator. I told the guy installing it to put it somewhere where it look nice.

World record run

Saw this in the Borneo Bulletin today. Haile Gebrelassie set a world record in a men's one hour race running 21.285 KM. Wow.... that's half marathon distance in one hour. It probably take me more than 2½ hours to run that distance.

3 laps JP run

I need to clear my mind today. My brain felt tired writing a technical proposal due to submit this Monday. Decided to go for a long run after work since I always feel much better after every run.

Did 3 laps of the route below and completed it in 1 hour 6 minutes, total distance 9.68KM. Not bad!

Kampung Sukang

On the way back from Kampung Melilas last Monday trip, we stop over at Kampung Sukang. Kampung Sukang is 2 hours boat ride from Sungai Mau. It's more develop than Kampung Melilas. There's a Police Post, Health Clinic and a Multipurpose Hall & Government Resthouse which I didn't see any in Kampung Melilas.

The exerciser

Jerudong park jog

No running for today. Feeling abit tired and my left calf muscle feeling a little strain.

Anyway... yesterday after work I went or a jog at JP. I don't really say it's a run as I'm doing it at a very slow pace. Did 2 laps of the blue route and 1 lap of red route below. Jog for around 53 minutes. I was targetting to jog for one hour but my left calf muscle gave up. Felt satisfy after the jog.

On a different note, I was surfing the internet last night and found this site. It's a camera review site. Apart from reading the reviews, you can also watch the review. Take the Canon G7 for example. The video tour link here!

No Melilas

Yesterday, me and my colleague was suppose to do a site survey at Melilas. We started out our journey from office (Kiulap) around 7:40am. I've already made an appointment to meet up with a couple of Telbru staffs nearby Sungai Liang Mosque by 8:30am.

From Sungai Liang we drove to Sungai Mau which is around 10 to 15 minutes drive at Jalan Labi. At Sungai Mau a small boat waited us to bring us to Melilas. Since now is a rainy season, I was told that it should only take us around 3 hours to reach our destination by boat. If it were dry season it can take more than 4 hours to reach there.

See the map below to see where is Melilas.

Boat from Sg. Mau
Almost one hour into our boat ride suddenly our boat engine broke down. The boat driver told us that we have no choice but to row back to Sungai Mau. 5 minutes then we saw a boat approaching us... it's the Melilas Imam going back to Melilas. We stop him... our boat driver ask him if he can pull us back to Sungai Mau which he willingly accepted.

It took almost 2 hours for us to go back as we can't really go that fast! We were actually lucky.... for one hour I didn't see any other boat pass by us.

Going back to Sungai Mau

We decided to go back home and will arrange another trip early next week. Reach home... took a nap... then decided to go for a run at Jerudong Park area.

Also manage to do another Jerudong Park run today. Will post it up tomorrow.

Canon G7 Accessories

I already got the camera. Now which one should I get next from my accessories wishlist?

From Canon G7 brochures
Wow... Canon even have a waterproof casing for the G7. Probably I should take up diving!!!

Speed week

The missus and Syaza went for a day trip to Miri today. Send them to their cousin house before 6am. Went back home but can't sleep, text him whether there's a Jing Chew session this morning. Had breakfast with AnakBrunei and his missus, Ber, Nikonian and SoulJah at Jing Chew.

After breakfast decided to stop by Jerudong Park to take some photos and videos of the motorbike and go kart race. Met up with Aku, Airbiscuit, Jim and RJ63. He was also there!

Guess who?

I wonder what he shooting at?

Motorbike racers got to wait for their turn for the time trial. Each rider given 3 laps for the time trials. First lap is just a warm up lap. Fastest time from lap 2 or 3 taken to determine their pole position.

After the motorbike time trial it was the go-karters turn. I was expecting to see the race but decided to go back home as I was feeling tired and sleepy. Not sure what time they started the race today!

Here's a video for the motorbike time trial.

BTW... thanks Ber for lending me the flash! Let me test it out for a week. Oh... thanks for the breakfast also.

Note to myself :
  • Haven't been to the gym for 2 weeks already. I got to start going to the gym again for my regular exercise.

Just came back from Empire cinema watching Ocean Thirteen. Good film but still think Ocean Eleven is better. I think I want to watch Ocean Eleven back.... got to buy the DVD.

Outdoor run

After work instead of going to the gym, I decided today I do an outdoor run. Went to Jerudong Park. I've not run around Jerudong Park almost 6 months. It was nearly 6pm so I decided to do 2 rounds and try to finish my run before the azan.

My run route
Based on my previous measurement, one round is approximately 2.3KM therefore 2 rounds should be 4.6KM. However, my Nike+iPod is showing that I had run at a distance of 4.21KM. Hmmm... doesn't really matter, so long as I get my exercise today I'm happy!
