Last Friday was Deepavali so we had an extra day of ‘weekend’. It was a long weekend for me, which felt quite short as it was filled with many interesting things I managed to do as a mean to rest my brain from the hectic work life. I’m still busy with work, so I hope I’ll go along with photo-log this time around.
It became the day where EnAikAY turns into a DIY (do-it-yourself) guy. We went to the filled-with-human-beings Ikea to get some shelves and chest drawer. The home needs a little bit of housekeeping lah.
I started off with assembling this Gorm shelving unit. Since we live in a relatively small house, we need to store things vertically wherever we could.
In total, we have five of this unit altogether since we first moved in.

With a little bit of extra space in the credit card before it hits its limit, my wife wants to have this white chest drawer for the master bedroom.
It took me about the same time of doing a half marathon run to finish up with the assembly of this chest drawer. But it was fun, for me at least.

EnAikAY puts on his running attire and did a relaxing run from Bukit Aman to Hartamas and back. It was a pretty quiet and descent morning for a long run. Syah and I chatted all the way, reflecting on lots of things from school day memories (yes he was my senior back then), past racing and training experiences, future plans, and also on some other general gossips (ahahaaa). Lambung session was held at a very sopan santun manner.
By the way, it almost went into a disaster day when I wrongly updated my Dailymile for the time we took to run that 20.7km. I wrote 1hr09mins instead of 2hr09mins.
Thanks to Syah who quickly SMS-ed me for the typo, or else I might end up with bleeding ears for the whole day. Tak boleh kasi chance sama itu lanun-lanun jalanan di dalam Dailymile
(I didn’t carry my camera this time, so above photo was the one during KL marathon this year).
We then went for a wedding in the afternoon where I happily did my post run recovery carboloading. The nasi minyak was perfect, with gulai kambing and roasted chicken as the main side dish. It’s ok to be boroi once in a while, right?
An unexpected decision was made to travel to Kuantan to pay a visit to my wife’s grandma who was not feeling well. My daughter was also looking forward to re-visiting the beach after a long while, so did her daddy.
Sunday gave us a wet morning with some drizzles but a promise is a promise. After breakfast we went again to the beach. I love spending time at the beach, even if I don’t go into the water for a quick swim. It was so relaxing, and calm.
The journey back to KL yesterday evening was a bit packed, especially upon reaching the toll gates. But nevertheless, it was a great get-away weekend for my family.
This coming weekend, another get-away race weekend in Seri Manjung, Perak. So this week will be a combo of peaking up, tapering, carboloading and final gearing up, all jumbled up baeek punya. Pening kepala aku.
P/s: Oh Monday blues, why do you have to come and visit me today? I never invited you lah.
