special report (long and winding)

1. Christmas holidays

double pay always make ppl happy. boxingday shopping? i have to say it's much hyped than what it is around here. hopefully the bank wont be the ones who r still smiling comes january.

2. Garuda tergaru2

well done m'sia. a very impressive all-round performance, other than the DM, he still need to work on movement and quick passes. 3-0 seems enough to bring home the throphy. but this is football, who'd have predicted we'll win by a comfortable margin like last night? who'd have thought football can bring ronaldo many places? hot places, cold places?

laser pointers? it's the Indons who will need them, to assist with some accuracy. not that im supporting the dumbass brat who spoilt the match and the sweet win.

3. Ashes

ayam gila oz boxing day 1st innings. very slim hope left for the oz to win the urn.

4. Tour Down Giler 2010

the plan was a 48kms cycle up Mt Lofty summit again, but this time via Gorge rd, which shouldt take more than 2-3 hours. but... something didnt go to plan.

in red: the deviations.

there are a few things i learnt:

1. They have a really2 poor signage around the hills area
2. Google map is not that reliable
3. to bring a map next time/gps
4. who's up for cherry picking? apple picking? lychee picking? strawberry? let's cycle there.
5. keep urself hydrated. i only had coffee n biscuits for breakfast n 2 short choc bar all day.
6. the signage is really bad around there. ah i already put it at no 1 but seriously, it's really bad.

somewhere between Ashton-Summertown. a really steep descend. u cant see the bottom when u r on top of the hill, n u cant feel the steep climb due to the carrying speed when going down.

the stats: (if u r into stats)
total kms: 124.94 km
max speed: 78.0 km/h
average speed: 22.0 km/h
total time cycling (berenti solat n mkn2 donat umh sarah excluded): 5h37m25s

could have gone quicker if i know my way around, nevertheless a very very embarrassing average speed n time.

i was quite disappointed that i only reached the Crafers after 100+kms, and i think i made the right decision of not climbing up the summit, n just enjoy the ride downhill from there. what a memorable christmas day for me. suprisingly, it wasnt too tiring at all. i was working 12-8.30pm yesterday. double pay beb!

(sarah kate scale rosak, kne tambah 2kg)

the thing is, we only can now our potential if we push ourselves hard enough.

have a blessed holiday. stay blessed!

ps: any good opinion on this? i dont want to walk around with ppl thinking i'm having a semi erection.
