Notes:

The Son asked, “Ayah, Faisal nampak kurus tak?”

The Father replied, “Tak lah. Maybe sikit jer lah.”

😦

The afternoon cycle was a killer. I was totally dehydrated and there was no power at all from my legs. I was just wishing for it to be over and done with as quickly as the wind blows. If not for the finger-licking bone steak a.k.a sup tulang merah, that my mum has cooked for breakingfast, and the thought of all the calories I will stuffing myself with, I would not have done the ride.

The feeling sucks. Pardon my French.

Strength training after terawih tonight.

Come on Faisal!!!

Update:

Strength workout done. Phew! Omitted the squats due to precautionary measures. Will test the left knee again and hopefully can resume doing squats next week.

Now MAKAN time! Pulut kuning and its assorted dishes and bone steak are waiting.

Adios!

Notes:

I love Pasir Ris Park and its beach too.

It’s so serene and the view is just magnificent with the lush coconut trees swaying in rythmic motion.

The cool sea breeze always bring respite from the scorching heat and I love seeing the elderlies doing their exercise there. Be it cycling, running or even walking. Even some taichi too.

I hope to be like them when I grow old.

Anyway I’ve slowly regained my cycling strength as I don’t feel as tired as when I just started out during early Ramadhan.

Alhamdulillah.

Oh Allah, if only I can have a partner to go cycling or running with. Make it a lady if possible.
