There were more than thirty of us from the Chief Original Bootcamp, Malaysia that ran the Singapore 2XU run on 1 April 2012.. and it was no April Fool. Rose Emini Pahamin with a group arrived earlier to collect our race number and race kits. We stayed at the Park Royal on Beach Road, Singapore. Rose Emini Pahamin left with Nyna Mohsen, Bahariah Bahadom in a car and after collecting our race kits, she checked herself at the hotel where our parent also stayed. Since we start running for almost 10 years, this was the first time that my parent came to cheer for us.. it was either because they were really bored or maybe they actually love us more than we thought.

Blog compilation of various pictures of COBC pips taken in Singapore during the 2XU.

Mum & Dad was already at the hotel when Rose Emini Pahamin arrived. Nawal Aini Zulkifli and Aaraf Armin and me have not even left Kuala Lumpur.

Our race numbers..

Rose Emini Pahamin mentally preparing her mind by visualizing the running route looking at the map.

After checking-in at park Royal at beach road, they carbo loaded... MAKAN!!!

Back at the same hotel, Afiza Abdul Halin has also arrived and was shocked to discover that she was 'converted' into a 'male' runner upon collecting her bib.

Afiza: the last time I checked, I was still a women!!!

The ladies went shopping!! err.. or.... window shopping rather... or maybe just to camwhore!?

Which they did!!

Maslina Mohd Ismail, Afik Zakie, Shazni Az were in Singapore too for the 2XU!!!

Camwhoring!!! as mannequin ?!!

Then Makan!!!

After makan, they went back to the Hotel and we waited for our arrival!!! We arrived around 8pm!! At the hotel, Advance Tan, May Lyn Wong, Ali Rahimi Ferdosinezhad had also arrived and checked in.

When we arrived, we immediately errr... Makan!!!

Makan where? at Har Yasin sup tulang!!!

After makan... we sleep!! and woke up the next day all excited to run!!!

We gathered at the hotel lobby!!! 

Afik Zakie could not run and was feeling abit under the weather.. but we did not mind because we can multi task him to be our cheer leader and paparazzi!!!

It was a 10 minutes walk to the starting point.. and we had to take an overbridge which overlook the starting position.

Some use Five Fingers!!!! 

Some use their tongue!!!!

We were running in the middle of a concrete jungle.

We were flag off half an hour later than the scheduled time!

Our official paparazzi Afik Zakie parked himself on the sky bridge to take pictures of us!!

Life is nothing but a blissful journey!!

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.
Image via Auto World Remember the last time you were overcharged for a repair? Yeah, me too.
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.
