Taroko Marathon

This message is from Terence:
Taroko (Ali-san) marathon in Hualian, Taipeh will be held on 7th November (Saturday). The categories are 42k, 21k and 10k. Air Asia now flies there. The running route was voted as one of the most scenic marathon route in Asia. Bullet train from Taipeh to Alisan takes only 2 hrs.
Terence will be there for 3 nights (5th to 8th November). Return flight by Air Asia was RM570 at the time of booking. So far, 6 runners have confirmed.

done some google on it.

it's being term as the most scenic marathon route.
it's makes me tempted to go for it.

just check Air Asia ticket and return flight cost RM686 includes airport tax.

Ground Cable

1 feet long of bigger and more "kasar" ground cable will do the job.

this will makes the electrical flow from battery terminal negative to positive become much more smooth.

and the LIGHT is much more brighter on additional to the direct wiring from battery to head light.

this small project can be done within 15 minutes and just cost a little.

Going to find my time to execute this project...

Head Light Bulb

yesterday, i went to my usual car wash @ Kota Damansara.
i have been 3 weeks did not wash my car.

it's dirty.

it's been long time did not side down yam cha with my friend.

discussing with him on the car...

Head Light Bulb.
OMG... im found out from him that myvi stock head light bulb can causing the head lamp become blur blur over a long period...

this is because the head light bulb did not have UV protection layer.

UV layer protection layer? i heard this term before.
oh, i heard it last year when Philips Xtreme head light bulb was being introduced.
most of my myvi gang have brought the head light bulb.
it's cost about RM200+++

Besides that, another better head light bulb deal...
that's is HID. The 1 my friend recommend is cost about RM400++
which includes all the HID kit and cable...
important thing is the HID is yellow colour light and it's wont attract police attention if compared to white colour light.

it's for safety purpose.

another i found from my friend is myvi head light design...
the lamp is BIG...
and the bulb is place deep inside the lamp. the deeper it's being placed, the more reflective and more bright it will be.

my friend straight aways gives examples of bad design are: Proton Perdana. the head light is not placed deep inside and it's definately lose on the brightness if compared with myvi. in fact myvi's brightness is the most brightest...

even after change the head light bulb to HID or Philips Extreme, the satisfaction will not complete if the wiring did not change.
on the original wiring, the head light is being wired together with other accessories. the electric is being shared with others... and at certain point, the brightness of head light bulb is not being maximised.

the simple solution is wire the wire straight from battery to head light.

too bad, not only waiting for the right time, right place. right people and importantly right money.

Runner Malaysia


RunnersMalaysia is celebrating her 3rd Anniversary! If you’re in KL, do join us for a short morning run at the usual gathering place – the car park facing the police HQ – at 7:30am on 25th April.

And in the true spirit of community there will be a light pot luck breakfast after our run at 8:15am. Contributions like snacks, fruits, finger food, sandwiches are most welcome. Those interested in bringing food or drinks, please email me For directions to the car park, please check out .

In the 3 years, Wan and I have had pleasure in meeting new runners of all shapes and levels of fitness to the always free Beginner's Running Program.

Our reward is seeing many whom have “graduated” from just being able to complete a lap around the lake to running marathons (that’s 42.195 km or 26.2 miles) and making jogging/running as part of their health routine. It’s just our little way of giving back to the community and sharing the benefits of an active lifestyle.

So here’s looking forward to seeing you on the 25th!

Wan Yew Leong & Jamie Pang



im starting up my running with runner malaysia...
im myself did not know im likes to run...
running with group really motives me...
besides that, my social network is expand...

Jesse Jackson

Today, finally got the confirmation on the Jesse Jackson talk on 22 April 2009 at Sime Darby Convention Centre Ballroom. i will be attending with another doctor friend to the talk.

Profile of Jesse Jackson:
Reverend Jesse Jackson
Reverend Jesse Louis Jackson, Sr., President and Founder of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and former assistant to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is one of America's foremost civil rights and political figures. Over the past forty years, he has played a pivotal role in virtually every movement for empowerment, peace, civil rights, gender equality and economic and social justice.

Long before national healthcare, a war on drugs, direct peace negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis, ending apartheid in South Africa and advancing democracy in Haiti became accepted public policy positions, Reverend Jesse Jackson advocated them and by doing so helped to bring the American public to a new level of consciousness.

Reverend Jackson's two presidential campaigns broke new ground in US politics. His 1984 campaign registered over one million new voters, won 3.5 million votes and helped the Democratic Party regain control of the Senate in 1986. His 1988 campaign registered over two million new voters, won seven million votes and helped boost hundreds of state and local elected officials into office. In 1990 Reverend Jackson was elected to the post of US Senator for Washington, D.C.

As a highly respected and trusted world leader, Reverend Jackson has acted many times as an international diplomat in sensitive situations. For example, in 1984 Reverend Jackson secured the release of captured Navy Lieutenant Robert Goodman from Syria and the release of 48 Cuban and Cuban-American prisoners in Cuba. He was the first American to bring hostages out of Kuwait and Iraq in 1990. In 1999 he negotiated the release of US soldiers held hostage in Kosovo.

His international efforts continued into the 2000s. In February 2003 Reverend Jackson spoke in front of an estimated one million people in London's Hyde Park at the culmination of the anti-war demonstration against the imminent invasion of Iraq by the US and the United Kingdom. In November 2004 he visited senior politicians and community activists in Northern Ireland in an effort to rebuild the peace process and restore the governmental institutions of the Belfast Agreement.

A hallmark of Reverend Jackson's work has been his commitment to youth. He has visited thousands of high schools, colleges, universities and correctional facilities encouraging excellence, inspiring hope and challenging young people to study diligently and stay drug-free.

Reverend Jackson has also been a consistent and vigorous supporter of the labour movement in the US and around the world. He is known as someone who has walked more picket lines and spoken at more labour rallies than any other national leader. He has worked with unions to organise workers, to protect workers' rights and to mediate labour disputes. In 1996 he travelled to Asia to investigate treatment of workers in the Japanese automobile industry and in athletic apparel factories in Indonesia.

For his work in human and civil rights and for non-violent social change Reverend Jackson has received more than 40 honorary doctorate degrees. He frequently lectures at major universities including Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Columbia and Stanford. On 9th Angust, 2000, President Bill Clinton awarded Reverend Jackson the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honour. In October 1997 he was appointed as “Special Envoy of the President and Secretary of State for the Promotion of Democracy in Africa”.

Reverend Jackson has been on the Gallup List of the Ten Most Respected Americans for more than a dozen years. He is also a member of the Advisory Board of the International Peace Foundation.
