Press Release: Historical Shah Alam Stadium Hosts FIM Asia Supermoto Championship 2016 Finale!

Round 4, Shah Alam Stadium, 17 – 18 December 2016

SHAH ALAM, MALAYSIA, 1 DECEMBER 2016 – Gates will drop for the FIM Asia Supermoto Championship 2016 series at the world-renowned Shah Alam Stadium on 17 and 18 December 2016 from 9AM – 6PM (+8:00GMT), with over 20 international riders from 14 countries contending for the last time for overall standing and championship title.

Home to Selangor FA and host to countless global concert tours and football competition including the Chelsea FA and Arsenal FA’s friendly match against Malaysia’s national team, the stadium has the capability to hold a capacity of 80,372 audiences. This remarkable moment for the FIM Asia Supermoto Championship will transform its vicinity into a show stunning track to crown the overall champion of the 2016 series.
Satheswaran Mayachandran, CEO of Asia Supersports Group, said that the stadium has its charm and is the perfect venue to host the finale. “Shah Alam Stadium has a strong history and reputation in hosting various international sports and activities. Crowning the championship’s overall champion will be historical for the race.”

The showdown between Malaysia’s Muhd Habibullah (Gabit) and Australia’s Andy McLiesh will be the highlight for the Open International Class. With total points of 121 and 107 respectively, any minor mistakes on track could cost either rider their championship title. Gabit’s kin, Mohd. Al-Amirul Ashshahid (Gaban), might take the third spot, but luck could be with the Malaysian rider after his outstanding performance in Malang last October.
On the Asian Class chart, it will be the fight between brothers – Gabit and Gaban – for the championship title, with a slight chance for Khairi to top the podium. While we already knew that one of the Malaysian trios will take the top spot, Japan’s Takashi Sasaki will not forego the chance to secure a top 3 for himself.

FIM Asia Supermoto Championship 2016’s finale will be a race not to be missed, especially when the 2016’s standings are at stake for every rider. Top notch condition and full concentration witnessed by a crowd of supermoto enthusiasts will be the supreme curtain closure for Malaysia’s 2016 motorsport scene.

For those planning their vacation in Tokyo or its neighbouring area in  mid-December 2016, there's a private charity running event that will held at the Imperial Palace jogging course on Dec 18th, 2016.

15K (Men & Women) 2,100 yen registration fee
5K+15K (Men & Women) 3,200 yen registration fee

Press Release: Herbalife Malaysia Hosts 5 KM Fun Run for Its Third Annual Nutrition Day

East and West Malaysia joins Herbalife’s Nutrition Day and its continual effort in promoting the importance of nutrition and healthy active living.
Warm up session in progress with the participants of the Herbalife Nutrition Day 2016 5KM Fun Run before the run.
KUALA LUMPUR, 26th November 2016: Herbalife Nutrition, a global nutrition company, kicked off its third annual Nutrition Day by bringing together its members, guests and the public for a 5 KM Fun Run at the Perdana Botanical Garden in Kuala Lumpur. More than 3,000 individuals and families took part in this celebration from all over Malaysia.

The event in Kuala Lumpur opened with a welcome address by representatives of Herbalife Malaysia, followed by a warm up session before the Run’s commencement at 7.30 am. In addition to the Fun Run, the event also featured other fun-filled health activities such as pre-warm up and post warm up exercise and a lucky draw session that was held after the race.

The Fun Run was open to both individual and family racers with the opportunity to win Herbalife shakes spread throughout the race.
According to the 2015 National Health and Morbidity Survey, 30% of Malaysians are overweight1 with nearly 18% of the population identified as obese. In addition, 7% of children under the age of five are overweight1 because of the increasing adoption of sedentary lifestyles by Malaysians. This has led to an upward surge of non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular illnesses.

“In light of these worrying trends, we want to do our part to improve the health and wellbeing of Malaysians. This year’s Nutrition Day focuses on issues pertaining to the importance of nutrition and healthy active living. We encouraged adults and children to take part together as family units to drive home the importance of the whole family leading a healthy and active lifestyle,” said Sridhar Rajagopalan, Sub-Regional General Manager of Herbalife Malaysia and Singapore.

Outside of Kuala Lumpur, 5 KM Fun Runs were also organised concurrently in other states in Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia as a part of Herbalife’s Nutrition Day 2016. These other participating states include Penang, Pahang, Kelantan, Terengganu, Sabah and Sarawak. The Fun Run in Sabah was held on a beach at Tanjung Aru, Kota Kinabalu. Perak is also scheduled to host a Fun Run, but on the 4th of December 2016 at the Ipoh Polo Field.

A PB Dinner At Plan B

I've always wanted to eat at Plan B again as it had been ages since we last went there. Well, felt like ages but Hubby and I actually went there for brunch to celebrate my getting a 5th placing at Jog 4 Hope 10K in August! Muahahaha
But really, it had been ages since we visited Plan B in Bangsar Village for dinner and it was so long, menu changed also I dunno. LOL
The two boys chose their meal from the normal menu while I decided to take advantage of the Makan Malam promo to get free desserts.
Our meal started with the Nacho Everyday Salad (with smoked salmon). I had been hankering for some salmon but I told myself I needed a PB in my run to enjoy them.
Well, running at a 4:44min/km pace during a relay run counts as a PB, right? And our team bagged 2nd placing too!
So let the salmon bingeing begins! Hahaha
Son had the spaghetti meatball.
Hubby chose the Yeezus Royale (whatever that means)...
Hubby actually complained that I was being greedy when I ordered not only the salad but also this Pan-Seared Salmon with Pesto Rice plus the free dessert.
Not to worry. I finished everything!
Love the salmon and the rice was nice and fluffy and light. A perfect match.
For my free dessert, I chose Salted Caramel Brownies. Utterly sinful and sedap.

It was a satisfying dinner and I guess I need another running milestone soon if I want to eat this good again! Hahaha

Having Fun At Herbalife Nutrition Day 5K Fun Run

It was 4 days ago when I received an invite from Herbalife to join them at the Herbalife Nutrition Day 5K Fun Run. Just after I told Hubby that we won't need to wake early for any races for the balance of the year. Hahaha

Herbalife Nutrition Day 5K Fun Run was held on Saturday, Nov 26th 2016 simultaneously in several states, apart from Kuala Lumpur. Other states that held the run were Penang, Pahang, Kelantan, Terengganu, Sabah and Sarawak.

The Kuala Lumpur edition was held at Taman Botani Perdana (Lake Garden).

Another run will be held in Ipoh, Perak on Dec 4th, 2016.
It was a rather low-key event but with a respectable turnout from Herbalife members and agents.

There were two categories available; A for Individual with registration fee of RM45 and B for family at RM140 (2 adults, 2 child) so this is a great event to bring the family to join.
 At the starting line. Individual runners were flagged off first, followed by the family category.
A water station was located at around KM3.2, opposite the Tun Abdul Razak Memorial.

We first made a loop around the lake before climbing up the deer park hill and head to Bird Park. A loop around bird park, passing by Masjid Negara, Bukit Aman, Royal Lake Club and we finally finished the fun run.

It was actually more to 6K, with my Polar V800 reading 5.75K.

The route can be quite challenging because of the many inclines but most were in pretty good spirit doing it. I too enjoyed the route. It was shady, with nice long inclines and I am looking forward to maybe do my LSD using the same route in the future. Maybe do 3-5 loops?
 After finishing my run, it was time to redeem my shake.
And thank you to Herbalife, I brought back a pack of protein drink to bring back and drink at home. 
The route that we did.

After a hard session on Friday where I did hill repeats, it was nice to be able to take it easy and enjoy the fun run. 
Hubby and I stayed on for the lucky draw but no luck today!

While waiting for the lucky draw there were a few challenges held on the stage and one of them was this push-up challenge.

It was "only" a 5K fun run and it was a fun one as I completed it with Hubby this time instead of running alone. 

I'll be running alone for my LSD tomorrow for 3-hours. But no worries, it'll be in the safety of my apartment's carpark! ^^

For participants of Herbalife Nutrition Day 5K Fun Run, ecerts will be available for download at http://herbalife5krun.com from Dec 7th, 2016 onwards.
