Cheapo alternative to injinji.............

Still Remember, went for RL run at the start of the year just to get 2 pairs of injinji a half price...the Blog account is HERE

It was by accident at that I found a pair of toes socks below $2 that actually prompted me to try an alternative to injinji which can cost up to $24 per pair in Singapore...

I found this at JAPAN HOME:

I was actually quite impressed with the test run I did with these socks....even did a 16km with it at ECP and my feet came back as dry as when I started my run....

Good news is a pair cost $1.90 when I found them a few months back...and the price has dropped to $1.50 per pair when I found them 2 weeks back....i brought a few more pairs as stand by.....

$9 for 6 pairs is definitely worth it....and i used them for my daily work also

Hong Kong Cafe Nite!!!

First, must thank teelee for organising this....and all those who came down....thanks for the great company and gifts...not sure if the 2 cafes are suitable for everyone...

It was my idea to go for HK cafe at Novena since the food variety is more and location has other options if this is not 10 presence and a surprise that we have an equal quantity from both sexes

Everyone ordered different throat and nose is getting hell for me since morning so i can only take light stuff and have to skip those sinful food..

One of the interesting order of the nite: Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

and the popular POLO Bao but with char siew filling: Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

After hours of seating and chatting, we decided is time to move....dunno where to move, we decided to move on to TONG SHUI at upper thomson it opens till we can stay out longer.....i need my hot coke+ginger fix

accidentally took a shot which can submit as TONG SHUI adverts....hope the model dun get photograph fee from me:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Went we stepped into the cafe, one thing i notice is that all the waiters ae NON-CHNESE...i really cannot figure out where they are from.....

Everyone actually waited and stared at each other for sometime think what to do:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The small bites from bugis liang seah street branch is salted vege which is very nice...i was quite suprised that it was different here: Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Menu finally laid and we started to take our orders:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The service here was actually quite disappointing as they kept bringing in wrong orders...and finally, the first came but everyone still continue to stare:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket A plate of fries is very attractivePhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucketand finally, there are some actions:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Coming to TONG SHUI cannot leave without ordering their popular peanut butter toast:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucketbut this certainly does not look as appealing as the one we previously had at liang seah branch:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket with the same TONG SHUI model in the photo

it came cut but not enough so we still have to cut more:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucketlooking at the thick sinful peanut butter:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucketunfortunately, we ordered 2 and i controlled myself and the rest din managed to finish all...but we found a "rat" bites on itPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketI assumed that this toast from this branch doesnt taste as good as other branch..someone please let me know...we will blacklist here....anyway, is in my blacklist for its service liao

as we call for the bill, they even charged the wrong ordered that we returned.....hmmmmm....but taz will still be happy with the great company

Slack run.........

Although i cancelled my IPPT, i cannot cancel my weekend run...but I want to sleep a bit more...damn...still need to drop by office for an hour or 2 later

Someone jio me to MR...start at 7.30am...that means need to wake up at 6am...i dun want...if i go take IPPT, i need to wake up at 5.30am...i also dun want....decided to do my own run later until an old fren of my from uni jio me for a run to start at 8am!!...that's a good option

So I decided to join her and her fren.....she wanted to explore more routes to run on her own so I decided to them to MR ranger station via venus drive and back....

both did well to complete the run...happened to meet lokun doing his 1st LSd back in Spore and also Ms J just behind him.....but this is really a slack run for me....never wake up so late and start running at 8.30am......took 1hr and 30min for about 10km.......

good decision to cancel IPPT, my throats seems to be not so good...due to the long working hours for teh work week andmy heatiness started to raise again....hopefully, i can control it before i go back to the green in 10 days time
