Have you done a good deed today?

One of my New year resolution is to do more good deeds than last year. I can't donate my blood now because of my blood condition, and being a foreigner in UK not gonna help the blood donation process.. Some one suggested Sperm donation.. I never thought of it at all, but well, I don't want to have a heart attack in the late 80's when some strangers come to face me and tell me I am their father, so I'm gonna pass this proposal.

So, I have decided to donate some money to Cancer Research Council and I did it today. Even though the amount is not much if compared with Bill Gates donation to the Gates Foundation, but at least I showed my support and my willingness to help.

So, have you done your good deed today?

RUn..rUn..

The battling of the weather, the chilly showers from the sky, the strong wind gushing at 30 km/h, temperature 8C and the slippery of the ground didn't stop me today to start my month long training for the 10k run. I am determine this time.

So today I kicked start the training! I am proud of myself... KM covered= 4.0

Just shut up and RUN!!!

Resolutions on progress...

I always realized that I have been slacking off in doing some sports... The winter weather doesn't help to motivate me to go out and run for a long time, hence my stomach has collected speed bumps (at the wrong place!!) and uneven surface!

This 2008, I have made myself promise that I must have a plan to train myself, and work on the plan! That is what I so call Plan the work and work the plan.

 running

My 10KM Running stamina improvement plan. Professionally accessed, so you can use it too, but bear in mind that you can customized the training sheet to suit your stamina.

My new year resolution this year mostly resolved in a physical and stamina in sports. A minimum of 3 times a week of cycling covering 4KM x 2 each time, and body toning and building 3 times a week. What I have accomplished is the cycling part, the body toning part I abandoned it due to laziness last year, but I resumed yesterday.

I have to sleep now as tomorrow is my working day! argh...

One of the many photos I snapped with Nicole... She is HOT!!!

Extremely Random Photos

As I have a rather busy end of the December 2007, I can't manage to post in this blog for the photos that I have shot during that time... Now to sum up all of it, I hereby present to you the amateur-ish art photos..

During my graduation week, the weather turned to a frosty average of 2C in the day and minus 4C in the night. It is quite an common sight that leaves and cars been covered by frost!! Even the fields and some roads that didn't sprayed by grit salts are covered by thick layer of frosts. It is such an amazing experience!

dows

This is one of my most favorite place in my university--The dows. It is really beautiful especially during sunset. Note that the grassed at the background are covered with frosts, hence the whitish colour..A recap of how the Dows looks like in the mid-autumn  http://george-lim.blogspot.com/2007/09/stunning-photos-as-promised.html

frost on the field The Highfield park which is nearby to my campus are covered by frosts as well, but that didn't deter kids from running and having some fun! See photo below to get what I mean.

OK, now really is time to sleep. Wish you all have a Happy, prosperous and peaceful New Year!

New Year, New life, New Resolutions

A quick entry before I head to bed. Well, I was wrong about the solemn Christmas, it turned out to be VERY CRAZY in a good sense of way, same goes to new year eve celebration which the house party goes from 11pm till 7 in the morning!!! It is all good, except that I have to drag my ass to work at 11o'clock in the morning the same day.

I kept delaying on drafting out my new year resolutions as I am still drown by the excitement of getting many cool gadgets for myself during the Christmas week! HP all in one printer and a Logitech VX kick-ass laser cordless mouse kept me smiling for the whole week!

christmas gift

YES! those are my christmas gift! Just ignore the pink panty and condom, those are my housemates' crude practical jokes for the stocking stuffing.

Back to the main point of this post, ahem... looking back at the last year resolutions, I have accomplish quite a bit. Having most of the things in the list being accomplished.. well, err.. except acquiring a new language, where my personal tutor Jean has gone back France, leave me with broken French and no Champagne glasses.. haha.. I got a new pair of nike shoes today too, so that is kind of accomplishing the resolutions i had. I can't believe myself that I have just bought the most expensive pair of shoes in my whole life (so far).. Will update on that one later.

So, this year, I carry some old resolutions over and viola! The new one comes up now! Check on the right-sidebar to get a taste of what I am wishing to accomplish this year.

Peace.
