Newton 25km

My legs still hurt!

Newton 25km was very tough! Btw, I heard from other runners that the distance is 27km instead of 25km. The running route was very hilly. I wasn’t even prepared for it. I took so long to complete the race that the sun was so scorching hot. We started at 6.30a.m and at 9.30a.m, I was still running..I mean walking. I was too tired to run that I walked and ran a little through the last 7km.

My timing and position is really bad. =( There’s a total of 685 runners in men’s open, and I’m at position 534! very bad.. Medals were given to the top 50% of runners in each category. But I did get a finisher’s t-shirt.

Position Name Time  Split 1 Time  Split 2 Gun Time Chip Time
534 DANIEL BOEY 01:04:02 02:02:38 03:28:31 03:28:01

I’ll surely return to this run again next year! I hope to finish in Sub 3 hours next year.

EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens! =)

I got a new lens last Thursday! It’s a Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens! I didn’t expect to get such a good lens. 🙂

Its an upgrade and a replacement for the 18-55mm kit lens that died early this year. Repairing the 18-55mm was too costly so must as well get a new better quality lens. The lens was released just last year. After going shop by shop at BB Plaza, KL, I managed to buy the Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens + Hoya UV Filter for RM 2400! Other shops were selling the lens alone for RM 2800-3000. Isn’t it a good buy?

Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

According to reviews, the lens has a very good image quality. I haven’t got to really test that. But, its 4-stops IS system really works well. It keeps image reasonably sharp even at shutter 1/5 @ 15mm! The distance scale on the lens makes hyperfocal focusing possible. Focusing is very accurate and silent thanks to USM. I’ll be taking some pictures soon! Stay tune.. 😀

Sunway Lagoon Outing! :)

It was more like being in Iran rather than Sunway Lagoon! Full of Iranians at Sunway last Thursday.

I had an awesome time at Sunway Lagoon will cellies n steamboat after tat! 🙂 Yea, we actually planned to go to skytrex, but those  A**es decided to close for Raya, LAST minute. Brains~

Thank God for good weather, it drizzled a little before we arrived but was sunny throughout the day. I finally have d guts to ride d Pirate Ship, n I  did it 3 times! I did the roller-coaster once too. Joel, Darren, Kah Weng n I paid RM20 for a 5mins Go Cart race n it’s not worth it. The  Go Carts weren’t fast especially mine. My driving skills aren’t tat bad, kay, its tat my Go Cart were slow. Some of us decided to skip lunch n fast, tat save me some money. As you know, food at Sunway Lagoon is ridiculously expensive. I bought a small cup of orange juice for RM6! I won’t forget how some guys were really scared n even wouldn’t go on for the non-scary ride. Sad..

We went for the Congo Challenge, the slide where you go head first so many times. Finally, we had some nice time wrestling at the beach!

We had steamboat at Pulau Ketam Village  Steamboat, Cheras.. N, service really sucks. First, rotten eggs. Second, its took 40mins, a dozen times ordering a can of coke. Thanks Hay Teng for belanja-ing us dinner! 🙂

Anyone have good ideas for birthday pranks??
