Last year I used breaststroke in the entire 3.8km swim. My freestyle then was...not that free! 100m and you'll see me panting like fish out of water. It's gonna be different this time but I doubt the time is going to be shaved much. Freestyle is my style and hope I can minimise my zig zagging. If not I may end up in Sawadeekap land. Hah!
Being a maiden last year, there was more anxiety rather than enjoyment. Never knew how my swim was going to be, never knew how my ride would take me and never knew if my legs would let me run to the finish line.
Well, I did, Thank God I did!
2010, I want to cross that finish line again...

Fellowship and charity
By CHRISTINA CHIN
MORE than 700 riders from all over the country raced through the states of Penang, Perak and Kedah over two consecutive days — all in the name of charity.
Participants of the inaugural Malakoff Interstate Fellowship Ride 2009 arrived at the Penang Municipal Park on Jan 1 after cycling some 220km.
The event was co-organised by corporate giant Malakoff and a non-governmental organisation called the Knights of the Round Table (KOTRT) with the support of the Penang Sports Council.
In his speech, Malakoff Corporation Berhad managing director and chief executive officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said the event integrated recreational sports with the community’s wellbeing.
“This will be an annual event for us and is part of our corporate social responsibility programme. This year, 110 of our employees joined in the ride to raise RM20,000 for the National Autistic Society of Malaysia (Nasom) (Penang Chapter). Hopefully, next year we can get greater number of participants and have an exhilarating route,” he said.
Nasom advisor Dr Sim Joo Seng said the centre provides counselling and customised training to those affected by autism.
“We need continuous financial support and volunteers as there are many more on the waiting list who can benefit from the centre’s services,” he said, before thanking Malakoff for its assistance.
In her address, state Youth and Sports, Women, Family and Community Development Committee chairman Lydia Ong Kok Fooi said the state government was aware of its growth potential in sports tourism and would encourage the public to be more active and participate in healthy community-based activities.

Met Tey, Mac, Arif, May Senn & Chan Weng Kai, collected our race kits at the centre which looked more like 'kandang kuda', toured exhibition hall before heading to Lynette's place in Pasir Ris.
