Dubai Marathon 2014

My first and last 10KM run.  I was expecting 2 hours, but I finished it 1:45, not bad.  But the pain after the run was like "I will never do this again" :)

I am okay for 5KM and 3KM fun run :) only.

Anyways, I had a good time and experience with my running mates.

8 hours of sleep! Yehey!

I am happy today!  I slept for 8 hours and it feels good.

This is my first time to experience the 8 hours sleep for 2014.

"The Conjuring" with my friends.

This is a late post as I recorded this on August 2013.

My friends and I was courageous enough to watch "The Conjuring".  So, I recorded our mixed reactions.  The 60 minutes video was squeeze to 29 seconds.

2 Things that switched a rainy day to a wonderful day.

Being sick is not an excuse not to be crafty today.  It has been a year and I just have to finish this project that I started.  It took me 12 minutes to finish it up and 12 months of laziness.  :)

Thanks to my friends that supported my artsy mode and for donating all these beautiful memoirs.

More drinking session to all of us for 2014 :)  Happy Days!

Woke up today craving for a delightful breakfast.

I prepared:  Sunny side up, oven baked turkey bacon, toasted bread with "I can't believe it's not butter", fresh squeeze orange juice and coffee.
