Go to for news and views on the Malakoff University Duathlon Series.

There are a whole lot of contributors including The End, Sam, and me plus the main blogger Muddy Waters who hails from Ayer Keroh.

Muddy Waters = Ayer Keroh. Anyway I think that 's pretty pun-ny.

I'm planning to take part in the team relay. If you'd like to know more head to for a participation form or visit for race information/participation/race routes etc.

Why no updates? Well...

I'm back from the mini-break, and needed a week to catch-up on all the email, mail, and odd things that find their way into my in-tray whenever I'm away for more than 2 days.

After every vacation, I wonder why i went in the first place. Yes I had fun but, and this is a big BUT
- unpacking
- washing
- cleaning
- putting things away
- and the bone-tiredness of returning to work
kills me every time.

Mine is the only household on my street without a 'kakak' or 'makcik' Indonesian, Filipino or Cambodian. All around are one 'kakak' and two 'kakak' households.

We do have a cleaning service come in twice a week, but the rest of the time we do it on our own. So you can understand why my updating has been erratic.

1. Coming up soon - the top three reasons for my dismal performance as a cyclist.

2. Also my newly begun training for the Malakoff University Duathlon Series. Ties back to (1.).

My Glass is Always Half Full - MUDS!

The set back of spending just 20 minutes in the saddle for the entire duration of the Malakoff Cahrity Ride has inspired me to sign up for the Malakoff University Duathlon Series, appropriately acronym-ed MUDS.

I'm eyeing the relay as my running is even worse than my riding, if that's possible.

My glass is never half empty, or even half's just brimming over.

Team Malakoff @ Finish of Charity Ride - Tanjung Bin

Here's the contingent from Tanjung Bin. I asked the lads for a different pose for this one. This is more rugby than cycling, but its a nice change.

Seriously though, we need to get away from the 'thumbs up' and the 'V'/peace sign.

Team Malakoff @ Finish of Charity Ride - Prai

Here's the contingent from Prai. Check the discreet product placement for isotonic drink. I did not plant it there...

Team Malakoff @ Finish of Charity Ride - Lumut

Here's the Malakoff contingent from Lumut.

Team Malakoff at Finish of Charity Ride - KL

Apologies if not everyone is in the pix. Here is the Malakoff team from KL at the end of the race, when they arrived at the Batu Burok Beach Resort.

Speaking of which, why is the End, co-blogger and organiser, not in this picture?
