PharmFreak got this very hardcore drug stall feel to me. They could be a good brand to come over to Singapore but some how most of their most effective supplement won’t be able to enter the Singapore market due to some banned ingredient by the HSA.

The moment the cloth comes in contact with my skin, it like air condition! This material is suppose to work with water, yes that means your sweat! EVEN HOT WATER! Gotta check it out!

CSC Run By the Bay 2013!

motivation
you can do it!

I would like to thank NutriFirst for sponsoring the CSC Run By the Bay. Special help from Doris and Yang from CSC for getting me the tag to run. Fresh air and great running group during the race made this a truly enjoyable one.

Met some great running – a lady who tried her best to follow up despite her gasping for air.

A 60 years old man who is running at a good pace

a petite young lady who i gave up chasing after the 12km mark! She was really quick; she can still have time to do a selfie while running.

Lastly there is this ang mo lady who I met during the last 2km, she told me she would catch up and over take me and she really did catch up in the end and we finished the race together.

Strong is no longer a word that only man can use.

Tape on with my Gasp and Vibram 🙂

Quality is not so bad, slightly stickier than RockTape so when you are trying to peel it off it hurts alitte more. Price is much cheaper but limited design. ($20 a roll)

Free Amino Energy and Optimum Pre Samples give away! gotta try them for my workout!

Run Timing

Immediately after the race there is ice cold 100 plus and banana together with the medal given to you. No queue any way regardless is taking your bag. There is a red bull and milo station there as well. (free milo and red bull) Overall it is worth the trip and i would love to go again!

Despite having a bad ache on my legs due to legs training on a Thursday i am still able to clock a decent timing. Most probably it is due to the highly motivated group of runner who is around and my HIIT training! Next up will be aiming for my 42km standard chartered run! More Hiit to come!

 

 

Dive with Fishermen Scuba at Pulau Dayang

logo fishermen
Fishermen Scuba Logo

 

Fishermen Scuba is one of the oldest dive school around, they are very strict with their standard and always watch for safety. You can be sure that you are in good hands when you dive with fishermen team!
Located next to paya lebar mrt station. Take exit C once you arrive, less than 5 mins walk you will be able to reach them.

My second time diving with them, overall it was a pretty good experience.

fishermen scuba bus
Our Bus to Mercing

We left fishermen at about 8pm and arrived woodlands checkpoint at about 9pm, huge jam there and it took quite some time for us to go in. *take note they will ask each of the diver to pay $10 ringgit so we can keep our equipments and bag on the bus. They use this to clear the customs.

Dive Gear and my bag pack for me and my buddy

There will be one stop before reaching Mercing, so better go to the toilet at woodlands checkpoint or at the stop(petrol kiosk). We arrived at Mercing about 150am.

Took a 4 hours boat ride to arrive at Dayang, there is a aircon cabin below but i choose to sleep at the 2nd deck as i get motion sickness easily in air conditioned room.

Boat, Fishermen, Scuba,
Fishermen own the boat!

Check in to our room at Dayang, air conditioned room 2 king size bed for 4 person, the only bad thing was that there was no water heater for the shower. Electricity will be off for a certain time slot around 9-5pm.

Woke up at 730am to get prepared for our first dive! You wont have much time to sleep, try to sleep as much as possible on the boat and on the bus!

sinus, block nose, mucus, zyrtec-d
My Magic Pill

Pop a Zyrtec-D (you can get it at your guardian pharmacy.) This will help with my sinus as it dries up the mucus and helps me to equalize better during the dive. Take 1 tablet every morning 3 days before the dive then take 1 tablet every morning before the dive!

Fear of Drowning while Diving?
Diving is a safe sports, if you follow the dive master instructions, know your equipment well and stay in a group. The risk of drowning is very low.

Do you need to know how to swim to dive?
Nope, you just need to be comfortable in water to dive.

Thanks for reading!
