Revealed: Da Munnchi's Code

I have to admit that I was very half-hearted in taking part in last weekend's Bintan Triathlon. I had a nagging headache which didn't give me much motivation to even attempt the gruelling course.

A recce of the bike route (by bus) and a glimpse of the run course didn't help either. The only inviting consolation were the clear blue and calm waters off Bintan.

So what was the oomph factor that spurred me to keep going and going like the energizer bunny on reserve fuel?

Words.

Words from my loved ones and friends, and timeless words from the Bible kept me on course to complete the race.

"For nothing is impossible with God." - Luke 1:37

"You can make things happen if you try hard." - Papa's birthday wish to me

"I have faith in you, and I pray that whatever you do & become will make a positive impact to your life, your loved ones & the community." - Mom's birthday wish to me

"If you haven't got fever or joint aches for the past 3 days, then go for it... but do it slow and enjoy the race" - Doc

"You eat (carbo-load) so much, I better see you at the starting line tomorrow! " - Choonwei the Zoomway

"Slow and steady wins the race" - Papa, as always

So here it is... I hope I've been an inspiration to all my 'fans' and critics out there. Cheers.
