I'm Officially Scared

October is here and I'm really scared, my friends.

Reason 1: I'll have half marathon this coming Sunday at Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2015. I've very little training, way lesser than the training I did for my first half marathon at Nike We Run KL earlier this year.

Reason 2: Hours after the half marathon, I'll be heading to an outstation assignment which is expected to be the highlight of my carrier. I've receive the agenda for this assignment and it is...a little bit overwhelmed. It has been a dream to see the places in this assignment...but I'm very scared of not able to deliver the story that I want to share with everyone.

Reason 3: Less than 2 months left before I become someone's husband. Man, marriage. Who would have thought.

So, yeah. I'm really scared, man.

[#music] Lost In You by Garth Brooks/Chris Gaines

Have you ever tried to look for an old song that you heard during you growing years and finally found it again after so many years? Well, I did recently and man, it was such a joy.

Seriously, you won't believe how long I've been trying to find this song: Lost In You by Chris Gaines - the pop alter-ego of country music superstar, Garth Brooks.

[#musicmonday] Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars

With the super funky melody and golden voice that Bruno Mars has, Uptown Funk is one of those “perfect” radio song that my ears needed in the era where too many songs on the radio are singing about asses.

However, there’s one particular part of the lyrics that really got my attention.

[#Nike] Roshe Flyknit: When Simplicity Meets Innovation

The formula is rather simple: pick one of the most popular style as of recent and then come out with a version that is built using the equally popular method of shoe construction. That's the Nike Roshe Flyknit, for you.

Truth to be told, the Roshe Flyknit is not exactly a new release as it has landed in selected stores such as Sole What outlets since few months ago. Then again, new colors were released in February at Nike Sportswear retailers throughout the world including Malaysia since last month.

#MusicMonday: Stay With Me by Sam Smith

So, my KTM 200 Duke broke down today. For the first time since I bought it in 2013.

I'll save the story for other time since it is rather long. The whole ordeal was almost 11-hours, after all...yup, my Monday totally gone with the wind because of it.

Nevertheless, when it broke, Sam Smith's Stay With Me immediately popped up in my head and was on repeat continuously (in my head, still)  till now. Could be because I'm really wishing for speedy recovery of my bike which is the only personal mode of transportation that I've at this moment.

Guess I might have loved my bike that much (no offence to the missus)...but paying the repair bill later is still going to be a bitch apparently, as hinted by the mechanic.

Oh man... o(╥﹏╥)o

#MusicMonday: Baek by Joe Flizzow

So, Flizzow's Baek is the second video that the famed rapper has shot in New York many months ago with the first being the critically acclaimed (baru menang Juara Lagu kot) Apa Khabar. Apart from the scenic view of Brooklyn, the video featured plenty of cameos.

See if you can spot them below:

IMHO, the video is just like the song: playful. I'm don't know how having Brooklyn and cameos in the video helped convey the meaning behind the tongue-in-cheek song but...somewhat, I kinda understand. Well played, Joe. Well played.

All in all, ok lah, not bad. Just that, IMHO, Flizzow might have took too long to release this video. Remember, this song came from an album that was released in 2013.

Also, I realized the intro and the ending of the video are slightly different from the song. If you have Spotify, you can take a listen below. Mmm hmm. :3

Farewell 2014, Hello 2015: Thoughts For The New Year

2014 has been an interesting year. There were many great things happened in 2014 but those are now in the past and no longer on my mind apart from them being happy memories and motivations for the future.

What's actually on my mind as we transition from 2014 to 2015 are the many promises that I broke throughout the year. I truly apologize for all that and I'm striving from now, on the first week of the new year, to make things better in 2015.

Again, please accept my sincerest apology. Let's work to make things more awesome in 2015... together. It is going to be heck of year, hopefully. :)
