So, how was your weekend?
Hope you had a good one 'cos mine was spent on a hellacious 6-hour bus ride from Kuching to the ulu Saratok, which the bus OF ALL DAYS chose to break down on a hot 35 degree day, leaving us having to wait for FOUR hours until reinforcements arrived and drove us to our destination.
I'm blogging from the comforts of my "hotel room" via GPRS right now. By "hotel", I meant converted shophouse located above a local fastfood chain. Any by "room", I meant ant-and-cockroach-infested pig sty. Nothing says I love you more than a Saratokian cockroach sharing the same bed with you.
On a different note, I have to say I'm completely BLOWN AWAY by the amount of support I have received so far regarding the marathon.
Initially I was only expecting 2 corporate sponsors max, but I've ended up getting much more than that. Heh, I think I'll go down in history as the most unqualified athlete ever to receive sponsorship deals.
I'll definitely be donating part of the proceeds to charity. Maybe the National Society of Marathoners Who Passed Out Before Completing The Race. I heard they need help.
Heck, one guy even suggested betting on how many kilometres I could achieve before I pass out/give up. He offered RM100 for every km I reach, or I'd have to pay him RM100 for every km I could NOT finish. I didn't accept the offer.
Thanks a million to everyone who offered words of encouragement. Sorry I won't be accepting any personal donation as I have nothing to give in return.
As for the others, I'd reply all e-mails when I return to Kuching tonight yea?
Food for thought.
Kenny: I'd like to date girls who are carbon copies of myself.
naeboo:Eww... that's BORING!
Is it better to date somebody similar to you, or someone whose differences complement you?
