VIKI LIM, JEFFERY WONG AND THE LION DANCE

No it was not Viki Lim that did the Lion Dance and No it was not a real lion but it is better than the real King of the Jungle. Its a dance by Chinese Martial Artists. Basic Lion Dance movement can be found in most Chinese martial arts such as Kungfu and Wushu. The Lion Dance is a traditional dance in Chinese Culture that was performed to scare away evil spirits and to summon luck and fortune.

The lion dance is often mistakenly referred to as dragon dance. An easy way to tell the difference is that a lion is operated by two people, while a dragon needs many people. Also, in a lion dance, the performers' faces are covered, since they are inside the lion. In a dragon dance, the performers can be seen since the dragon is held upon poles.

Viki Lim's was the first fellow bootcamper's house during this Chinese New Year that had a Lion Dance at her open house. Having known the quiet but cheerful and determined Viki Lim for quite awhile during our CHIEF ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP (COBC) session, she is not only friendly but a down-to-earth mother of three to Hannah Wong, Ashley WOng and Jayden Wong. Being a recruit, we all dress the same t'shirt, do the same workout and share the same mud.

One can only wonder how a person is until one sees the person at home. Viki Lim has a beautiful family. Beside being a wonderful friend, great daughter, a loving wife and a mother of 3, she is also the second eldest of 5 siblings. There are Vivi, Viki, Lizi, Mili and a brother Alvin. Her sister Lizi Lim and Lizi's husband Hin Toong Long was our close gym friends for many years during our Fitness First days. Viki Lim a keen athlete is a pioneer member at the COBC but her husband Jeffery WOng and brother in law Hin Toong Long are both a hardcore athlete. Hin Toong Long was a SEVEN times IRONMAN TRIATHLON finisher and an 84km Ultramarathon finisher. Both Jeffery Wong and Hin Toong Long are attempting the 100km Ultramarathon at the Singapore Sundown marathon this year. Damn I wish I am as young as them!!!



Nawal Aini Zulkifli, Rose Emini Pahamin, Aaraf Armin and me arrived at Viki's house early as we had to leave for Aaraf Armin's taekwondo class. Viki Lim occupies a beautiful house with manicured landscaping at one of a prestige residential area. Her house ambiance was very calm, inviting and peaceful.

The choices of food was so generous and salivating...... *swallow saliva.... and will immediately throw away all the Spartan diet we were on. But my hypothesis and theorem was further affirm that CNY harmonise all the choices of food range. We've had Malay food, Japanese food, western and today at Viki Lim's, we had Indian food during Chinese New Year celebration!


Everything.. all the choices of food was as if it was carefully handpicked and chosen!! The dessert.. I think its called sago sago was also a bomb!! There goes our diet but it was well worth it.

Viki Lim invited almost all her Bravo platoons comrade and some from Alpha. Amongst the many bootcampers that were present were Pooi Ching Khiew, Afiza Abdul Halin, Jorges Arenas, Raja Affandi Raja Jamaluddin, Norliza Mohd Khaled, Rose Emini Pahamin, Nawal Aini Zulkifli, Armin Baniaz Pahamin etc etc....















Beside chasing away evil spirit.... the Lions were quite romantic and loving or maybe the Lion was very gatal and started kissing..




It was mesmerizing and funtabulous. The best varieties of food, excellent choice of entertainment and the best company.

Thank you 
Jeffery Wong 
Viki Lim 

for inviting us.

Looking for a reliable car workshop is not an easy feat in Malaysia. Many car workshops are known for overcharging and providing poor quality parts.

The good news is you don't have to fret anymore! Car Bengkel, a local app set up in collaboration with the Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI), aims to help motorists survive this ultimate road challenge.
