The North Face Philippines 2014 - The organizer have confirmed the date will be on May 3-4, 2014 at Baguio, the same venue where i joint my 100km ultra trail this year.

I thinks, if im right, im still yet to blog yet to share my experience in TNF PH 100KM ultra trail  this April 2013. 

I wish i able to come back in 2014, but the date, as im not able to get permission to leave my job in early of the month. I have to let go my favourite ultra race!

Thailand Ocean To Ocean Relay Running 2012 with Bukit Aman Runners - Series

Finally, i have the time and my personal computer to updates my long long outstanding blog that i wanted to share since i completed the relay running back in December 2012. 

Its was my first trip visiting to Thailand, and i got this golden opportunity at the very last minute when there's 1 of the member not able to attend! Hoorey! 

We boarded express bus at Puduraya on Friday evening 11pm depart from KL heading to Thailand. We were arrived at the Bukit Kayu Hitam some rest stop where we have our temporary visa done by agent and had our breakfast and toilet break in early morning. 

At the Thailand custom, where the bus went parking and we Q for the custom. it's took about 1 hour for everyone got through the custom. 

First time visiting Thailand. Somehow i felt excited. 

Thailand, where's pickup heaven ! A lot of pickup cars were seen along the way to Hatyai ! 

Our bus destination are Hatyai. Where we will be boarding on our pre-arranged hired van for the relay! 
Hatyai, first time visiting. Something different. 
It's look very messy yet not really messy in real life.  

Motorcycle in parking. oh yeah, the weather is abit cooling in the morning. Ai.. what's im writing ini. 

The complicated electric cables! 

Its was some sunshine cloudy day on December 2012. 

Our bus stopped not far from our hotel. 

Somehow im still obsessed with the messy cables! zzz...  

Toyota and pickup cars. It's everywhere in Thailand! There's none of Proton cars spotted in our neighbor Thailand. 

Again! -_-iii 

It's our van! There's 3 groups of us. There's 3 vans and 3 drivers. 

My van. Really spacious! The interior that Malaysia Van never able can match with. 

I'm the most youngest, thus i got my back seat! haha... 

Tuk Tuk... 

Our lunch. Our first lunch in Hatyai ! Nyek Nyek Nyek... 

After the lunch, we were heading to Song Khla where our relay starting ! 

The awesome lunch! 

Had our yummy lunch, and all of us in 3 Vans, still have another 2-3 hours of journey to Song Khla where we will be checking into our hotel and pick up our Ocean to Ocean relay running race bib and vest and many many other related things! 


Remarks: The Ocean to Ocean relay running are purely my experience. Thank you.

Ironman Malaysia 2014

Today, about 12 hours ago, my facebook timeline were flooded with Ironman Malaysia 2014 posting and updates. Its was the photo below that confirmed Malaysia going to have its Ironman event back to Langkawi after last event back in 2010 or 2009, i think.

"Great to have #IMJapan Race Director Taro Shirato & Manager Ricky May here at #IMKona 
This is Taro's 14th Kona race."

A check with google on the "Ironman Malaysia" showing that it's happening! Ironman Malaysia will be held on 27th Sept 2014 in Langkawi, just like previous event. 

Ironman 70.3 Putrajaya - 13th April 2014
Ironman Langkawi - 27th Sept 2014

I was checking on the details. I remembered i read somewhere that Ironman Langkawi previously was just RM500 for local participants and when i clicked on the link, it's USD550 (early bird somemore) plus 6% administration fee. Oh my God. 

While chatting with my Ultra running friend, he said: " RM1500 just play 18 hours game instead of 100miles 46 hours game" wahaha.... #UltraRunnerSaying 

Soon once the registration started, we can spot a lot of cyclists will be cycling upside down in klang valley ! 

All the best to Ironman Malaysia 2014!
