Race Against Time

I expected myself to be tougher...
perhaps its the airport and its signification that opens that door, bolted and chained for so long
one crack at it, and the danger of it splitting wide open...i risked

Being my 5th year back in good ol' hometown Kuala Lumpur, i now fully understand the expressions of "getting it left, right and center"...and it aint the delightingly positive "getting it"
From every aspect and what you may call "pillars" of your life, i "got" it nicely...left right and center
now i dont mean physically of course....though that sounds more endurable as that only hurts for a shorter period and the bruising goes away
seems like whatever was done with the perfectionist objective...was not enough
mentally and physically trying in several different directions...
also "getting" several different directions

What do i do...
What can i do...
What should i do...
I BREATHE...or try to

Time is the ultimate rival now
Its winning... WAS winning...
it MAY get ahead of me again....
but im determined...
i will get i hate losing =P

been up since 830AM on this Sunday morning
attempting to trick the mind of Nescafe having an aroma
and start the day with a winning attitude! ;)

The other side

What's the first thing you think of when we say Hong Kong?
Perhaps something like this?

filled with yummies like this?

(personally we think Goose Rice is overrated)

Instead, the best part of HK so far was Vee and I taking a trip out to visit HK Pole Goddess Symone C! Who lives like 3 mins away from this:

Symone's sweet partner Jose made a lovely meal to fuel us after our Death-Lays attempts! *check FB page for pics!*
needless to say we had to attempt a TRIO on the pole:

As messy and noisy and crowded as HK seems, my time here had been calming to the soul, eventful and had a great experience at AFEEX with the knowledge that the international presenters had generously shared with the us.

AFEEX Updates

Viva Vertical participation and presenting Pole Fitness at the Asian Fitness Education Expo (AFEEX) of 2009 in HONG KONG,organized by AASFP and supported by REPs

*more pics will be uploaded on FB ;) *

my flight back to KL is due tomorrow.
i believe i'll have better focus now with 2 weeks "migrane"-free and phone going off every 10mins and NO DRIVING!

Aight KL peeps, see ya'll in HOT SUNNY KL very soon!

EmLuvinIt - HK

perhaps a sleeping schedule thats needs a lil tweeking and energy level that needs to be back up to par had resulted in the "sniffles"...

Viva Vertical's first LIVE radio interview in CANTONESE! Hope i didnt sound like a baboon with my throat clearing, sniffles and deeper-than-usual voice
To the HK peeps, hope we caught it on MetroInfo Radio Station this afternoon!

having lived in KL and Knoxville where both cities are beach-less, i crave the calm and soothing effect of nature's Wind and Water elements even more
even a harbour front helped me "ZEN" out while enjoying my MOS Burger =P

The Wind was calling out to us...reaching to we greeted the wind like this...

Do we Look like we're ready for an outdoor appreciation ad? =P

anyway, am taking my opportuniy now to blog more cause i know that chance may not be so readily available once am back in KL. so here's more to bore ya with!

i've been told i need to "calm-down" yoga or somethin so im not so "hot" ( and i mean temper ya =P ) most of the time...which only usually happens at night when my patience had reached its limit for the day =P
Fine...thought i'd do some yoga while am here and tried out Hatha Yoga for an hour.
i dont understand ppl do it 7AM in the morning. my muscles aint even warm yet for all that stretching movements!
Perhaps i should study more on WHICH type of Yoga to do in the morning....meditation may not work as i'd end up falling asleep in class. come to think of it, perhaps being sleepy helps you "float" while you "meditate"...hence the calming effect. argh dont mind blaberring, dosed up with cold medication (yes i managed to catch me a cold with a change of climate here as well)
So...what do Viva Poleleaders do instead of Yoga for some slow controlled mind focused movements? --> TAI CHI

that would be me shivering my arse off with lack of thick clothing to combat brutal morning wind

Here are the pros demo-ing. i do wonder how old they are...but its impolite to ask... =P

how to warm up the body after tai chi? some good ol chinese porridge with "yow tiu" =D malaysians call it "yow zha guai". this is some awesome "yow tiu"! the best i've ever had!! YUMMMMMMM

alright. i now must stop blogging because my laptop battery is about to run out PLUS i need to get my butt to Central to visit an old buddy! woot woot!!

Stay tuned as next blog i'll update ya'll on our Day-O-Fun with Pole Goddess Symone and Vee and I "attacking" well....fine ...not exactly attacking but marking "Viva Been Here" with poles around town

Peace and Love to ma pole peeps and mi familia!
