Morning Jog

It has been almost 3 years since I stopped morning jog. Main reason is due to work commitment, and my body weight since then has never drop below 85kg but still consider fit. At my height, my ideal weight shall be 79kg. Ironically, David Beckham is my height but weighs 79kg =P

My body started to get out of shape recently, so finally initiated the morning jog again and I woke up today at 5.30am. There are no places to jog around my site housing area, so I got to drive out to the nearest but biggest park in the area. Earlier I am worried that there will be no people and the place is not brightly litted as well, but to my surprise, I found at least 10 people walking and jogging around with 2 chaps at my age!

Wow, that's the lifestyle I am looking at. Dark but slightly bright sky and freshing air. I can imagine myself doing it everyday and I am feeling so refreshed now, although at this time (6.30am), supposing to be my normal wake-up call =)

Now I recall why I am able to keep on the morning jog earlier, it feels so good, just like the feeling of conquering the M.Kinabalu back on March 2009. Hope I can reach my target weight within this year.

ps: as i am writing this, it suddenly rains! what the ?

Hai Peng Kopitiam

I went to Kemaman, Terengganu yesterday for a day work trip and a friend of mine once told me that KL people that passing by the town will never miss a sip of local famous kopi at Hai Peng Kopitiam. Myself as Ipoh guy is a bit surprise to hear that there are other famous kopi around in Malaysia other than the Ipoh Old Town White Coffee.

So I made a stop at Hai Peng Kopitiam and tried out their Iced Kopi & Iced Tea, it is indeed very good! The kopi is a little stronger than the old town white coffee and it is definitely better than any coffee in Malaysia. However, I find it amusing that they are serving their cold drinks in ready-made plastic cup. It looks like a modernised bussiness man mindset, and I think most people will also still prefer the traditional culture feel of enjoying their kopi. However, still a double-thumbs up for their superb kopi quality, and as my friend said, I will definitely be visiting it again if I am in Kemaman.

Hai Peng Kopitiam is actually located in Chukai Town within the Kemaman district, but even local called the town as Kemaman, probably because Chukai is the biggest town in Kemaman.

Fast Lens for my D90 - Part 1

It's only been a month into ownership of the Nikon D90, I am already looking for additional lens. Typical low light dinner gathering in restaurant/cafe is my favourites, so a fast lens is very important to me. Of course I wouldn't want to "burst" all my friends' face off with the Flashlite SB-600, so this is my only option. Did a search and aiming one of the following lens.

AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm F1.8G ~MYR850
AF-S DX Nikkor 50mm F1.4G ~MYR1,970

AF Nikkor 50mm F1.8D ~MYR460 (my choice!)
AF Nikkor 50mm F1.4D ~MYR1,100 (better, faster, if budget allow!)
AF Nikkor 85mm F1.8D ~MYR1,630

Lucky me owned the Nikon D90, or else I would have to cough out double the price for the AF-S lens. Shall update again once I acquired it =P
