New Gear On My Back

I always wanted to have a CamelBak since the first time I saw people using them. Although it is not yet widely being used for long distance runners or triathletes, this water container + mini bag pack has been widely used by most mountain bikers.

And yesterday, my dream came true. Thanks to a good friend of mine, I managed to get myself a CamelBak Classic model, with a wonderful (read: affordable to my standard) price tag.

Soon, you’ll be seeing me using this.
A sip from EnAikAY’s Mobile Teh Tarik will cost you RM0.30. But, since you are my lovely blog readers, I’ll give you some discounts. Three sips for RM1.00. Amacam?

All this while, I am only dependent on my two 300ml Fuel Belt bottles which I’ve used since 2007. I’m planning to start using the Camelbak which enables me to carry 2ltr of fluid (max. capacity) for my long rides and runs. Plus, I can also carry my camera, cell phone, gels or energy bars, maps, compass, mini pump, spare tubes, car keys, wallet, bike tools, lemang, ketupat, lontong, satay, dodol, Almond London, tart nenas… eh, eh, tersasul la pulak.

On another note, I had a bad pain in my right ear since yesterday morning. The doctor said there might be some kind of infection in my ENT department, since there’s also a little lump developed on the right side of my throat. I’ve been prescribed with antibiotics and some kind of eardrops. The thing I hate about having to take up antibiotics is that, I have to complete the dose in timely manner without any miss, three times a day.

And the reason I came up with this entry, is because I just remembered I should be taking another antibiotic and the eardrop now.

hope nothing serious on the ear infection.
Waa nice camelbak, ehem...

It feels like there's a water inside the right ear. Berdengung and berdesing once in a while. If it doesn't subside by tomorrow, i'll take a second opinion.

P/s: and i get to know my blood pressure was 120/70 yesterday... nice.

oit, panjanglah pulak .. sowiee

June Malik said...

eh, u feeling better tak?

gerbera said...

Camelback tu letak sirap limau.Marbeles!

Hopefully nothing serious with ur ears infection. My friend dulu sakit kat dalam telinga, then bila pergi jumpa doktor,doktor korek2 keluar piece of plastic. Magic tak? Magic ke ngeri?

..::EnAikAY::.. said...

June,
Yeay... u've updated your blog at my comment area.. hihihi.
P/s: any comments longer than 30 words can be considered as a blog entry.. no? :)
Ops.. thanks for the reminder... time to take another antibiotic.

Meeza,
Yes, sirap limau air. Sure laju air tu habis (larian tetap slow).
Itu bukan magic atau silap mata tu, itu namanya silap telinga!
