After nearly 10 years in sgRunners, so what's uncle contribution in the coming sgRunner's 15th Anniversary.. uncle "kena blacklisted"...most negatives in sgRunners history...hope someone can beat the record... There was a 3-year period when uncle had been with the JustRunLah! forum...chat with angmoh runners...pretty model and influencer ... @trailblazeron topics on Running with Coaching issues...and FatBird Founder (aka uncle's cohort Sg Coach) dropped by to say "Hello, uncle...how's life?" this one forum thread at JustRunLah! had more than 100,000 viewership...may have been "linked" worldwide..average was more than 100+ daily [non-members]..GUESTS.. Yes, uncle being in Trail Running...was the mascot and host...knows almost all previous and present Trail routes...like 100km ones also...talk silly of all festivals celebrated including 7th Lunar Month...all Routes Run Around Singapore...encounters with ghostly bros and sis... Maybe uncle got blessed "heavenly ghostly sightings"...dip with Black Cat's tears and pandan leaves, enable uncle to see all things "virtual heaven and hell"...of course, what you wear or not wearing is "transparent" to uncle's business to Not-to-Know Policy basis...professional ethics...unless paid to reveal. Well it is Sunday already...uncle got to MIA by 2359...for uncle is "grumpy" and long-winded here..so..must stop for the sake of ALL... for ghostly runners awaiting for uncle...from the other side...quiet there...hear no complain always...and wear no mask always...

  5. uncle completed a 10KM familiarization Exercise (Run) north of Bukit Timah Railway Stn... Rifle Range Road >>> [Rail Corridor closed] >>> Bukit Timah Fire Station >>> Hillview >>> Gombak Rail Corridor [15km] >>> Pang Sua Park Connector >>> Stagmont "crossing" >>> Rail Corridor [18km] >>> Rail Corridor [20km] >>> Kranji Railway Station >>> Junction of Kranji Close and Kranji Road >>> Kranji MRT Interesting to know that north of Bukit Timah Railway Rail Corridor, the trail terrain is almost...except the one from Rifle Range Road [Rail Corridor Closed] Especally reaching Kranji Railway Stn (Defunct) the almost 1km trail (caused by bikes) becomes waterlogged on both sides, muddy... and if after heavy rainfall, this place should very wet, black and soggy...like s*** South of Bukit Timah Railway Stn...the trail terrain is completely the "North Rail Corridor" neighbourhoods hail from Hillview, Bukit Panjang, CCK... Of course, not many will venture beyond Stagmont "crossing" >>> Rail Corridor [18km] - Sungei Kadut ...saw wild dogs... Rail Corridor [beyond 18km and 20km] Kranji...beyond 20km is muddy and both sides are waterlogged... Surprisingly, shades provided by the vegetation are welcome against hot sun... Of course, North Rail Corridor is very much like good old "Green Corridor" because it is not frequent by both hikers/runners and bikers, nature is green. Note: Distance Marker along North Rail Corridor...last time... the distance [number in yellow board] refers from the 778.25 km marker (as shown in the picture) that once stood close to the mosque...towards Tanjong Pagar Jalan Hang Jebat in Wessex Estate, at the end of which the mosque still stands today... Uncle did not notice the yellow Distance Board at the South Rail Corridor...but from "Hillview" Rail Corridor [entered just behind Hillview MRT]...the yellow Distance Board is really "nostagia"...distance measured from Tanjong Pagar at 0 km....

  9. Coming soon to June 1...CB CB extension... Phase 1: Safe Reopening From June 2, you can receive two visitors per day from your immediate family (children or grandparents). Some businesses are allowed to reopen with Safe Management measures in place and children can go back to school and student care centres. Phase 2: Safe Transition After a few weeks of Phase 1, the government will decide if it's safe for us to move to Phase 2 where more of our regular activities can resume. This is the phase most of us are looking forward to – but it's likely that Phase 2 will be rolled out over a couple of months. Activities include small group gatherings, dining in at F&B services, opening retail outlets, gyms and fitness studios. Sports, recreation and outdoor facilities like the stadiums can also reopen. Phase 3: Safe Nation If the situation remains stable after the completion of Phase 2, Singapore will enter Phase 3 and stay here until an effective vaccine or treatment for Covid-19 is found. During Phase 3, medium-sized gatherings can resume, and spas, massages, cinemas, theatres, bars, pubs and nightclubs are allowed to reopen.
  10. Face masks in the time of COVID-19: Six questions answered (CNA News)
  11. Better check.... That brownish stained color plus description is most likely metal strip rust. Probably design fault didn't expect user to soak overnight and then starts to rust. Of course, if you need to use it urgently for "washroom with no toilet paper" (a premium item now during covid-19)... then use it with no other choice, staining it with the real stuff...discard better...no need to rewash...for it has served the purpose...what a relief! Really when nature calls, you may never know your when you "ultra (layered) mask" may come by useful...btw, please bring a backup mask, just in case, for you still need to Wear Mask Always after using the washroom.... next time toilet-train during Exercise (Run)....endure and stoppage all nature calls..like beyond 1km...3km...5km... then next time you can endure this route for 16km for just 1 "ultra mask"...for Exercise (Run Ultra!)..
  12. Actually, Events (SCSM or F1) are for the Economy, attracting both locals and overseas visitors to stopover and spend in travelings (Airlines/Airports), lodgings (Hotels) and immersing in the experience of Sports (Participation) and of course, savouring F&B during the Event stay...visit attractions (Tourism). Virtual Meeting/Travel via "Zoom" ...Virtual Run via "Zoom" or "Youtubing" casting... Uncle's VR definition - Virtual Reality - a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely different from the real world..immersive in experience... we may be moving into this direction after Covid-19...even when there is a vaccine for all...expect changes in the coming months Home-based VR learning start with the kids...
  13. everyone has their own agenda on fitness... some have moderate...some have higher... some will race...others simply DIY...some want medals (extrinsic)...some simply go Green (intrinsic)... no comments on what is fitness...cycling and running and swimming... exercise is essentially to burn fat...so which one will burn fat better...uncle chooses running over cycling over swimming...so what's yours? all the best bro...continue to do what is happy for yourself...just define on your own Stay Safe Stay Healthy Safe Happy in 2020...because there is simply no real Race (Run) which has a higher risk...vs..Virtual Run (Home-based)...very safe.. counting down to Sunday...in hours...and MIA...
