 Final day of Project Gratitude. Yikes.. what do you know? Its already Day 6 of a project which I was nominated by Zai Johari, one of the Founder for Sasuke Malaysia and the former the Director for Biggest Loser Asia. To pursue this good deed, I shall continue with listing a daily grateful things from tomorrow. As William Arthur Ward quoted,  “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it, is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” 
1. When it is time to workout, then it is time to workout!! I am grateful to wake up in an ungodly hours in the wee morning to have a bunch of more than 30  happy, cheerful and energetic people to workout and exercise with at the Chief's Original Bootcamp at Bandar Utama. Being around and surrounding ourselves with people that share the same goal, the same passion and the same interest will ensure a continuous mojo and a smoother path towards achieving our goal. The same is applicable in everything we do. Find people and surround ourselves with people that share the same passion for success and we will be successful.... and unfortunately, vice-versa.

2. Grateful to have such an inspiring, motivated and yet humble instructors to get the best out of our fitness and health. The pace and the intensity of our workout largely depends on how motivated our instructor is. If the instructor is hyper, calling your name, pushing you, working out with you, correcting your form, penalising you by adding reps and time for incorrect form yada yada.... you too, will be hyper and will keep up to the expectation. Vice- versa, if the instructor is boring, we became boring.

3. Grateful that I am an early riser. There is only 24 hours in a day. 1/3 of our time is spent on a good quality sleep, 1/3 for work and 1/3 for leisure & pleasure. Sure the 1/3 for work, sleep and leisure can be at any point of time in the 24 hours but I prefer to be ahead of others by starting myself early.

On this last day, I cant help but to tag two of my most senior instructors whom are the key to my fitness, strength and physically yummy look kikiii... If you accept the challenge (like most positive extrovert people would), you will need to write on Facebook 3 things that you are grateful for (I’m sure you can) for at least 6 consecutive days and nominate only 2 person for each days. Your list of gratitude can also be a sentence and does not need to be long. There are non other than Chief's Original Bootcamp Staff Sergeant Nawal.

and Corporal Amir.

So far, I've nominated Sidik Hamid, Aswan Abdullah, Kenanga Simon, Noorshahirah Abdullah, Dr Malek Aziz, Anny Chunraem, Steven Path, Rose Emini Pahamin, Aaraf Pahamin Armin, Liew Jackson, Alicia Khong, Iznan Salleh, Ervin Noordin, Syerry Surya Noordin, Poh Ow Ee, Diyana Anuar, Al Jazzura and Salawati Mohd Yusoff.
What have we learn from this project, beside waking up in the morning and listing down what we are grateful for? We learn that it is not always easy to stay consistent (to not missed 6 consecutive days). We also learn that it is harder not to be grateful when we are thinking of grateful things to share. On the same note, we do also realized (I trust) that it is actually easier to bitch than to write on grateful things..  and of course amongst a whole lot of other positive things experienced during this 6 days journey. What did you learn from the project?

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.
