Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010

 Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010
Date: 27th June 2010
Venue: Dataran Merdeka (Start and Finish)

I am going for this one... the 10 km category

Last year, I have joined and finished the Setia Alam Half Marathon for the 11km run. This year, I am aiming for the 10km run in this marathon.

I know you people must be asking why not go for the next level, Half-Marathon??? Well, the answer is simple. I dont think I am ready yet for it. And for someone who dont run long distance, going for a 10km is good enough.

So, would you be interested to join me for the run?

The World Through My Lens

My new photoblog....

The World Though My Lens

Please feel free to visit and give comments... Thanks in advance...

Good for Laugh

A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he dialed the employee’s home phone number and was greeted with a child’s whisper. ” Hello ? “

“Is your daddy home?” he asked.

” Yes ,” whispered the small voice.

“May I talk with him?”

The child whispered, ” No .”

Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, “Is your Mommy there?” ” Yes .”

“May I talk with her?” Again the small voice whispered, ” No .”

Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, “Is anybody else there?”

” Yes ,” whispered the child, ” a policeman .”

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked, “May I speak with the policeman?”

” No, he’s busy , ” whispered the child.

“Busy doing what?”

” Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman ,” came the whispered answer.

Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in thebackground through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, “What is that noise?”

” A helicopter ” answered the whispering voice.

“What is going on there?” demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive. Again, whispering, the child answered, ” The search team just landed a helicopter .”

Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, “What are they searching for?”

Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle…
” ME .”

I find this very funny…. the way it was written captured my attention and it becomes more and more alarming the more that I read…. And the final answer really just blew me away…
