After 8 hours bus ride, I finally reached Kuala Besut
Is a blessing in disguise they made us wear this vest to race , else i have to send my tri top to professional to remove the mud. :D
Nasi lauk with Tey Eng Tiong at Kuala Besut .
Arrived at Perhentian Island around 10.15 a.m
A bit fussy with the tent provided , I decided to book a Standard Room Fan at D Ayumni House
Altering my running vest at D Ayumni , Ms Lee is very helpful to provide me the tools needed
Race Day.. jeng jeng.. All the tulan(angry) face when race director announce the race will be delayed
Waiting for VIP for an hour
Trail is super well marked with this paper
We swim and run
Oppa tomato style
Welcome drink and kiss.. :D
Finisher Medal, BTW the race is a day race only, NOT 12-14 Oct
The Gals did it. Prizes reduced to Top 3 as there are not enough participants BUT
Elite Men and Elite Women prizes are different by 1K
Sad to say:
We pay the same entry fees and run the same distance
"Due to high demand. We are now open a new category for international section which is International Novice Men and Novice Women."

Another discrimination spotted, Top 4 prizes for local men but NO Top 4 prizes for local women
One last discrimination spotted, EXTRA 3k given to only ONE fastest runner .. IT is quite Obvious which gender will win. My question is HOW can a woman compete with a man in terms of SPEED and STRENGTH ?
