Always love how these two can stay on the couch for a good part of a lazy morning. Buddies they will be for life.

Perth Trip 2010 – Final Instalment

Image
I finally completed editing my favourite photos taken in Perth.   Sunset coast…. we spent  two days at a bed and breakfast at Sorrento. Not only was the property and our hosts fantastic…the beach and the view you get is simply breathtaking! Enjoyed the evening walks we took along the beach with the cool sea breeze and warm sunshine… if only we stayed there longer. :) The pic on the bottom right is Sorrento Bed and Breakfast which i just mentioned. The property is split into two levels, where the owners, Alan and Clodagh lived on the first storey, while the the second storey is kept exclusively for visitors like us. The bed was the cosier than most hotels i have stayed at… for the price we paid… we got so much more from staying here…. :) Rottnest Island… having lived in Perth for 3 years…. i have never stepped foot onto Rottnest. It is only now that i realised what I have missed! An almost untouched island… with soft white sand… and clear blue water… Love Love Love the sun an

Hwa got himself a hybrid camera from an online auction, that makes two of us… hence we decided to make good use of our weekends to start a photo journey…. great way to hone our photography skills as well…   First stop: The Singapore Bird Park  

my Nike

Hwa has been walking into Nike shops over the past two weeks, and looking earnestly @ the Apple / Nike Plus device. In his usual prudent fashion, he walks out not purchasing it at all. On Friday, I decided to pop into the nearest Nike shop to get him the Nike Plus + Sportsband. Silly me did not realise that  with his iPhone, he actually does not need the sportsband at all. Nonetheless, he was a happy boy. One thing led to another… where he got another device, and passed me the first device + sportsband so we can run together. Then we realised… we needed a pair of nike shoes each so the device can work properly…. so… ta-dah! New shoes! Anyway… just did my “first run/walk”…. and loving the Nike website… Now there’s an easy and fuss free way to track my runs. But… i think the only downside is … i am unable to include my regular yoga sessions into the same programme… Oh well… If only all my digital marketing work is as fantastic as this site! http://my.nike.com/ah-meen

inspired to be an iron(wo)man?

As my third Aviva Ironman 70.3 as a spectator came to a close, I get that familiar feeling which i had exactly a year ago. I recall changing into my exercise gear and headed out for jog right after i returned home from the Ironman last year.  I was extremely inspired… and told myself I wanted to start running… and eventually take part in a women’s run. Well… i did take part in the GE run…but i was coerced into it. This year… i am inspired again,… this time, I am thinking if i should pick up competitive distance swimming. Hmm… but that would mean I’ve got to start my training like now. While I stood by the swim start, watching the participants  run down the sandy beach into the sea for their swim…. i do wish i can be like them. But then, when i saw how exhausted some of them were after the first leg… i started to have second thoughts. Inspired?  I definitely am. Gamed enuff? Maybe not. Let’s stick to running for now… 10km next….

Remember i mentioned in a previous post that I was itching to get myself a new toy? I actually did. And that was like a few months ago. I got myself a hybrid digital camera (do we even call them hybrids?!) – Canon SX20IS … but have not used it as often as I would like to…SO, have decided to make the best of my investment… and start snapping. Am no photographer, but this is a first step to feed my desire to take pretty pictures. I feel my spirits lifted after walking in the park after a drizzle…Nature is refreshed…so am i.
