[Running] – Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2013 Officially Dated, Registration Starts At The End of January

We are only 18 days into 2013 but looks like the marketing engine for the country’s premier running event - Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM) - has been turned on. Yesterday, SCKLM has officially announced that 30 June 2013 is the official date for this year’s event via its official Facebook page.

Furthermore, SCKLM’s official website has been taken over by a clock that is ticking down to the first day of SCKLM’s registration which (by my calculation) should take place sometime at the end of this month. Interesting...

The SCKLM is going to be the most important event for me this year as I’ve already aim to obtain a sub-60 minutes finish time in the event’s 10km category. As some of you might know, I will step up to half-marathon only and only if I manage to achieve that target exclusively at SCKLM. Yup, only there.

With around one month to go before I kicked off my 2013 season (cewah, sounds like pro jer) starting with the Safari Zoo Run 2013 12km in Singapore, the SCKLM’13 news makes me even more excited to train…starting this weekend. :D

[Running] Nike We Run 2012 Southeast Asia Adventures - Stop 1: Snapshots from Kuala Lumpur Pt.1

My Nike We Run 2012 adventures begun right here in Kuala Lumpur for a very simple reason: it is the first one in the series for Southeast Asia. I would say that the 2012 edition is the most unique We Run KL that I’ve participated since the first one in 2010 because it takes place in early evening as opposed to early morning as per previous editions.

It is also the biggest We Run KL so far with 15,000 participants ceiling limit - which were all gone within 5 hours and 7 minutes after Nike opened up the registration process. Out of those 15000, 12000 - still a massive number - of them actually made it to the starting line on 13 October 2012.

Aight, enough chit-chat, time for them photos! Click on the link below to start.

[Running] - From KL To SG To PH: My Adventures At Nike We Run 2012 Series Throughout Southeast Asia

Between 26 August and 15 December 2012, Nike held the We Run race series for the fourth year in a row and this year’s series takes place in 34 cities across the globe which involved close to 400,000 runners.

Out of those cities, three of them are in Southeast Asia.

The first is our own Kuala Lumpur, second being down south in Singapore, the third one is in Manila...

...and I ran in all three of them.

Here is the story of my experience at Nike We Run 2012 series throughout Southeast Asia.

Stay tuned for the first part of my Nike We Run 2012 Southeast Asia’s journey coming your way later today. First stop: 13 October 2012 - Kuala Lumpur.

[Swoosh] - No Cup Is Safe When World's No 1 Golfer Rory McIlroy Meets The Legendary Tiger Woods

If you haven't heard the news yet, the current world's no 1 golfer - Rory McIlroy - has signed up for Nike which put him in the same establishment as...yup, the legendary Tiger Woods. Obviously, this calls for a friendly showdown.

As usual, yet another excellent advert by the people at Wieden + Kennedy - the long time agency for Nike. It is always a pleasure to see their work whether it is for the Swoosh such as the hugely successful Write The Future campaign or for other companies such as the awesome Old Spice Guy advert.

[LULZ] - When Driverless Car Goes To Drive-In Fast Food Joints

So, what happened was that Rahat - a magician with awesome sense of humor - decided to embark in yet another journey to make the life of the people at drive-thru joints very colorful. Or damn right scary, if it is done late at night:

I personally would be like "WTF SON" and recite some holy verses in a snap if this happened to me.

On another hand, I wonder if anyone drive-thru personnel out there have encountered such experience before - whether just a prank or in extra-terrestrial way. Let me know if you had such tales, would love to hear your (lulz/spooky) stories.
