Three major incidents happened to me and the people that I love, since my last entry in July. Okay I gotta put this in sequential order so you can get what I'm talking about;

Aug 27 - 31: First, my bf and I went to Bali to celebrate our first anniversary of dating! (Wow, we've been going out for a year now =D) I was so excited because twas my first time to Bali and I really, really wanted to go to Bali yayy!

Sept 4: Secondly, just few days after we got back from our Bali trip, I received a very, very devastating news from home, my uncle; my mom's youngest brother was admitted into the ICU. It was not longer than 24 hours after that, I got another call teling me that my uncle is gone. Gone. I didn't get to say goodbye to him. In fact, none of our family members back home did too. Everything happened too fast...

Sept 8: Thirdly, remember when I mentioned in my few posts ago about my bf joined a reality show called DiGi The Next Level? Where he had to be away for five-week shoot? Well, guess what? He won the competition! =D

There you go. Back to back of extreme joy and sadness. I didn't know what to feel at first or rather how to manage my feelings. I was exhilarated at one point but at another end, I just felt like locking up myself in the bedroom and cry my heart out because of the loss :'(

But I survived. Survived the emotional rollercoaster ride. A short yet long enough for me to learn a thing or two about life. A thing or two about life that would make me stronger to face another ride (who knows).

So what I learned is that; one needs to embrace unavoidable sorrow in order to understand (or appreciate) what true happiness means. It's the same thing with; one has to go through hardship before he/she could enjoy the harvest. Perhaps, this is the only way we can really appreciate life.

And no one ever say that life's going to be all rosy all the way. But hey, it's not going to be all gloomy all the way too. So, I believe the only thing to do is to live.

There is a common belief that growth requires suffering. One of the greatest causes of suffering is attachment. The more easily we can let go of the old and embrace the new, the more we can grow through joy rather than struggle.

***My uncle left us on Sept 5, 2010. Hemorrhagic dengue. RIP uncle::

Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010

I did my second 10km run last Sunday at the KL Marathon 2010. I must say the experience was waaaay different than I had during the Borneo International Marathon in May this year. Probably because this time around there were more people AND I ran with my boyfriend for the first time! ;)

Me - Still trying to look at my best. The gun time was at 7AM!

With Mr. Runfool! ;)

With my colleague Nana and her friend! ;) They did the 21km.

Me - still trying to look all smiley despite the soreness!

While everyone was huffing and puffing to the finish line, a tragic incident happened at the 8th km around 1 hour into the race for 10km runners. A guy in his 20's had a seizure and passed away on his arrival to the hospital. Read about the story here.

May his soul rest in peace.

Since it was my first time running in the KL Marathon, I can't really comment on the organizer. However, I do feel that they should provide at least three drink stations for the 10km instead of just two (one at the 4th km and the second one was at the 7th). My time was 1:48 (unofficial).

Seriously, I need a proper training.

Next stop, Penang Bridge International Marathon? Hmmmm maybe.

DiGi The Next Level

It's a little overdue though I guess I've mentioned about it in one of my earlier blog posts; so here we go again... my boyfriend got selected for a DiGi-sponsored reality TV show called DiGi The Next Level! They just wrapped a 5-week shoot for the show which will be aired on NTV7 starting July 7, 2010 (hey it ryhmes ;p). Read more about it here.

I'm super-excited about it; not only because of the fact that the show will put Runfool one step ahead in the game but also because of my boyfriend is going to be on TV! Yay! ;)

Run fool!

Pre-arranged. By my boyfriend of course. Each bouquet was sent to my office on every Monday afternoon (for five weeks!) when he was locked away for the shoot. Awwwww ;')
