writing poems for fun

Got an e-mail from wordpress.com that someone was organizing a National Poem Writing Competition. Not in Brunei, but hey, why not.
Basically, just write one poem everyday for the month of april, it can be on paper, or if possible post it on a blog, or facebook.
I haven’t written poems in a while, so why not…

I run for fun.
I run for health, I run for fun,
I run so far, untill I’m done,
I run 2k, 5k or 10,
I run every now and then,
I use endomondo to track my run,
To check how fast and how far I run,
And to track how frequent I run,
It makes running even more fun,
So scb marathon, here I come,
Running with everyone else, who is running for fun.

Waze – Social Network on the Road

I’ve been trying Waze for a year now. I love it. just be careful using it on the road. the interface allows people to update easily while driving, by just clicking about 3 or 4 buttons. But typing in descriptions is recommended for passengers.

I love the part where you can pave/record your own map. there wasn’t a trail to my home, so i traced it by driving thru. I also like how users can report anything on the road and you can see them. Cars parked on the side, road under construction, and my most favourite… Police and Traffic reports. This would be perfect if a lot of people use this app and update traffic reports. So here i am asking anyone to try this out. Check it out at www.waze.com. its available for android, iphone, and some nokia phones.

Just a warning.. obviously this app uses your data bandwidth and GPS. so it’ll use your battery life and credit. Recommended if you have a car charger and a post paid plan.

Excited to run 10k this weekend

I did a trial run of the 10k route last weekend,


I was running relaxed with my wife, her pace not mine. But we did quite well. I used endomondo to track my run, unfortunately the app crashed in the last 10k. Looking at the lap times, we definitely could have done better.


I’m hoping on the day the huge amount of ppl will get us pushing ourselves faster a bit more.

Running safe on the road
Running on the road is fun,
Here are tips to a safe run,
Go against the traffic,
That is very basic,
Wear clothes that are bright,
So people can see you in their sight,
Be considerate and thoughtful,
If not it might get aweful,
Running keeps you healthy,
But do t forget your safety,
And after all is said and done,
I hope you all have a fun and safe run.
