Shape Night Run 09

When: 25 Jul 09
Time: 6pm - midnight
Where: Putrajaya

The event was well organised except that some runners took a few cans of Revive or a few bottles of water, resulted that some slow runner has no water to drink. Organiser should distribute one/two can of revive and a bottle of water to runner while distributing medal and cert. This will also reduce usage of paper cup. The sausage was yaki, kedekut sangat, roti pun nak jimat.

This event also discriminate male and female runners as male winners received higher worth of product prizes than female, although they ran same distance. This is Shape/Women, Men event, janganlah berat sebelah.

Kampar Friendship Run 2009

Date: 6 Sep 2009
Time: 7.30am
Distance: 4km & 8km (Fun Run)
Fees: RM10
Hotel: Grand Kampar Hotel

The running season will take a break from mid August for about two months before the new season starts in late October 2009. Many runners have been racing each week till the season breaks and in the process have not been engaging in activities involving their families. It is with this in mind that the Kampar Runners and RunnersMalaysia have agreed to co-organize a fun run at Kampar on 6 September 2009. It is a non competitive run with a view to promote goodwill among runners coming from Kampar and the Klang Valley. Mr Chan who is the leader of the Kampar Runners will be our local partner for this event.

This event would also allow runners to explore local tourism, savoring the interesting hawkers’ food of Kampar. As an added optional program, we have arranged for a visit to University Tuanku Abdul Rahman at Kampar for families who may be considering sending their kids there for further education.

Should you require any further information, please contact me at 019-356 9031, email at or visit our website at

Bon Odori Festival 2009

Date: 18 Jul 09

Venue: Panasonic Stadium

Time: 5pm - 9.30pm

Obon (お盆) or just Bon (盆) is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed (deceased) spirits of one's ancestors. This Buddhist custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors' graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars. Also called the Feast of Lanterns, it has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori.

In Malaysia, it was more like a Japanese Food Fair, all kind of Japanese food i.e ice-cream, Sushi, curry fish ball, saugage, noodle, shaki, grill satay, rice, cracker, Tapanyaki, ayam goreng dll but not cheap. The food stores were build on sandy ground, as such there was so dusty and smoky.

There was so many ppl attending the festival, mainly Malaysian from different races came for dancing and makan-makan. Everyone merebut-rebut to buy food macam dah lama tak makan ni... I didn't take video as I myself was holding some food. We have to park 1km away from the stadium.

Some wearing kimono, some wearing mask, some wore high heels too (the organiser already informed not to wear high heels, as it would spoilt the stadium grass), dekil sangat.

Selangor MB and some Adun were invited but they were place in a bullet proof cabinet on top of the grand stand. I think they might wished to be like us, eating and dancing on the field. Couldn't they?
