Where to fix your faulty expensive watch??

Assalammualaikum.. it is not mine.. dont worry.

My wife .. hehe.
Her grandfather gave her this Longines watch after her good result in PMR almost 15 years back.

Last few months... it finally went down.
 down.. meaning really down.. change battery also cannot.

So, she was sad & looking forward to send anywhere to get this lad fix.

nak hanto Woh Hin le ( Campbell stree Penang) & so on.
Usually , this kind of "pricy" watch.. ada agent yg declare that they the only one can fix & it will cost a fortune. almost similar price of the actual price.. ridiculous... but .. that is how it is now..

So, after scouting around..& finally her father, which is my father in law = Mr Sofian, suggested 1 small shop in Jalan Raja Uda.

Hmm... can this guys fix it??

He look experienced & professional enough to do the job. but????

Anyway.. we submit in just to try our luck.

 Mr Sofian : the informer
 The opposite shop
The shop

As usual. they will try to troubleshoot & suggest cause of problem. 
after 2 weeks, he called. Sudah siap  huh????? how come?? heheh

Of course, they found the defect part, order a new one ( not sure either original or not) & then fix them.   Swiss made ka, italy made ka, china made ka?? semua da part.. so .. hanto je la kat local expert macam depa ni.. Amazing..
I really recommended this one. they even sell old wall clock, kuku clock,  used ROLEX.. & so on..  very small shop & yes.. no confident to go in if no one informing you... seriously..
But now, my wife watch is working work & back to life.

Im sure.. many other shop & tua tua apek yg capable of fixing those... We just need to find them...

ENjoy guys.

They have a blogspot as well.

Later ill put the link.

What is there left to offer for Kayuh Lasak 2012 ????


Is that the correct question?

Yeah .. i did asked that?.anyone ??. i dunno what to expect next year.

KAw.. really sure kaw.. I rated this year "The badass trail".

Sure love this one.. what more to expect. & with this challenges & the KAWness.. i need to start training for next year.. at Least to be at the front 200 to get smooth flowing on climbing in the beginning..

sorry to frens which were stuck in the middle & had to join the Traffic jam. 1500++ riders in a single or small double lane to climb steep hill??? forget about it man..

I had  some training mileage for the event. The one that i look high on. Recovered from injury just in time to get ready for this one. ALhamdullilah,.. had my chance & was really really careful on the descent as to protect my healing body part....

Little story of mine about KL11.
 this was earlier

& the actual..

Something is not right here hehehe ;-)
So ,  i was only sticking to the 1st one & imagining that the extra 55km was something just to extend to drain riders.. but again.. i was wrong..simple trick of digital manipulation.. does it all.. hahaha

Managed to complete all 9 CP & ended the pleasurable but punishing ride at 1336. 

216 was my lucky number. & again Alhamdullilah that i didnt collect any injury . some minor falling at the technical decents caused no harm.

Fun parts of the ride:
1. Short on road which is a plus for me.. I hate flat road. but the organizer need to find a way to distribute this group to reduce the traffic cloggin on the first climbin. ( nothing else except speed up lee hehe)
2. Killer climbing but i was in 2nd or 3rd front group. Managed to climb a little then no choice as people still didn t learn the manner to let stronger riders to ride on the right side. ( this one, at PCC presindential  was the habit & stressed out clealrly)
3. Killer DH with killer switch back & killer slippery condition. They topped all...perfect combination to test bike control. I was really carefull & had to slow down as it will be bad if something happen & i have to sit on the bench for sometime...
4. Technical decent was great & braved myself to try & ended up fell at the bottom... heheh.. it was fun still need to learn & to brave the decent.
5. The several KM Tarmac decents after CP4 DH ( on the new flyover) . the view was great & i really enjoyed that short resting & thought that The Organizers must had designed this route with the same mind. Trail designer.. thanks for this..
6.The rolling in the canopy at the last hill. Managed to pace up myself & capture the front group. After sometime. a train of 10 riders were there & we were motivating ourselves to complete the trail. & able to passed them before the decents by following the stronger rider. SOmehow, the muscle follows the mind eventhough that they were in so much pain. the mind then was manipulated by a good motivation when work out in group..something for me to look forward to. hmm

Not so fun parts of the ride:
1. The punishing Bukit genting. ( tak habis habis this one heheh.. drained up already & kill my time)
2. i had very low pressure rear tire (caught a very slow punture) which was noticed by riders behind me after first DH,but i though it was ok. it was not total flat & managed to carry me all the way to the start of hill number 4. realized that it was bad when i took the right corner on tarmac with some speedfor tarmac climbing for hill 4.( kawasan perumahan somewhere) i was drifting & almost fell down due to the too low pressure.
Pumped in some air & it was back to normal & stupidly i though it will be ok.. It lasted for about 10 mins & it was lembik again. ( low pressure) than i reallized.. slow puncture.  fixed the tire & start climbing again & only to realize that i was about 200m to the top of the hill.. shoot.
3. Hate the long flat on gravel after ending up all the hills section to collect CP 8... i hate flat & need to improve this section in my routine.. I cant push & i have no motivation to push on flats.. hehe help me guys..

That was it..

Full of challenges, exceed my limit, adrenalin rushed down... & full concentration on no mistake DH sections.

& overall "Badass MTB Trail" : which you will love it but you  have to suffer to experience it.

 tak cukup sifat as the last 6 km was not captured.. habih battery le..

 The trail
 Finishing point. WIth Joe Fifi 3G. half dead trying to catch this lad.

 In action on the last Decent.


 Man & the Machine
 Berteduh masa starting point
 The machine
happy time before suffer time

2011 October Fest- NON

Assalammualaikum & very good morning to all.

Today is the 29th of the month.

i fell down from my bike earlier this month & it is the beginning of the another recovery mode for me.

Due to that, My planned October fest was evaporated just like that.. Allah's will. Cant do a thing.

1. Planned GA Sarawak trip but withdrawn as wanted to join LIMBC2011.
2. Had to withdrawn LIMBC2011 due to recovery mode.
3, Many more training session in between

Just like that.

Achievement for this month.

1. 22nd:Started simple riding with newcomers from Infineon Clan ( Mail & son) . 10km offroading at my usual training trail.. hmm alhamdullilah.. Fully functional.
2. 26th ( Deepavali off day) Joined Calbaru P clan ( soon to join Recovery hehe ) to Pandai Merdeka onroad trip. Had nice Mee Udang session at Pulau Sayak & excellent Kari kepala ikan at Kota kuala Muda, Penang. ( habih ) ((( RECOMMENDED))

It was nice. & Alhamdullilah that i can ride again. The Left ACJ are recovering fast eventhough my clavicle bumb will not get to the normal position as per the diagnosis in the net & by doctors. The only way to put it back nicely is by operation. hmm no no..  as long as it is not dangerous ... im not going to do that. But, will slowly got for traditional massage for whatever they can do dgn izin Allah.

Due to all of this, I m making a plan with my lazy ass infineon clan to go camping & fishing & loitering again at Banjaran Bintang, Ulu Mahang. This time, im not going to bring my bike. Totally 4x4 offroading & enjoying the nature  : mandi sunga je lah. Will bring my guitar for old folk song session .haha.. need to re-polish the skills & remember all those chords again...

So guys, 14 of us from Infineon together with maybe 4 more org kampung will head to Ulu Mahang Heavy forest to enjoy nature at it best offer. ( My saying le)..

30th-31st  & starting at 0800 until 1400 the next day.  It will be fun insyaAllah.

later next month, biking clan from Alor setar might want to organize another trip.. will see..

see here..for last time photos

N Here the last session report.

Friday, 21 October 2011

Assalammualaikum & very good morning to all.

 It is 0714 in the morning & still tak mandi lagi nak pi kerje..

full day of DNV audit & damn.... minggu depan tak habih habih lagi..

Almost 3 weeks without biking as need to get some rest to fully heal my ACJ grade 3.. huwaa.....

from my view.. can ride already but my Personal Dr  begged to differ. give it a month then.. hmmm.. bosannya asik tgk gambo.... n lagi bosan bila tgk gambo kat langkawi huwaaaaaaaaa

 i was supposed to join but had to withdraw ( hehe macam bagus )  & yesterday was the stage where im looking forward too.. due to that... im very looking forward to february for the ultra endurance somewhere in Perak.. yeaah... insyaALlah.

Had enrolled myself for Kayuh lasak 2011. i guess that will be my post injury maiden ride again.. as in 2009.. kayuh lasak  was my first ride then when i had broke my meta carpal ( right hand). The theme was ( im back)..But this time... " KAW ride" ????? heheh lantok komele..

still cannot check mi namelist ... mana tau.. tak ada nama dldm list... hmm... Pretty sorry to tgk ramei yang ngomel ngomal tak dapat masuk this big event... memang betul pun.. cepat sgt bukak & tutup..heheh.. the registration is ridiculous.. but i remembered during my first kayuh lasak registration.. it was hard to get in.. & i had to register under a team to get noticed. ( insight info from organizer).. then REcovery was then reinvented..  Y??? because i was on recovery mode...  & since then...  the label stuck with me all along........... even at1 point had cause a confusion & sick joke among " frens".. then even it was big thing in my area where colleague used to register rides under Recovery_Kulim /Recovery Malaysia's belt.. &  hahahaha it was fun.. a blog was established by total stranger & many more confusing things went around......That is life  the way i see it.. full of uncertainties & for muslim... hanya mainan dunia..

SInce then i m using this recovery term as i please.. It means a lot to me.. RECOVER....

Hope you lot enjoy the beautiful friday & Start to Recover whichever,whatever,whenever ,however & many more ever & ever things u can do...  DO not wait up longer to recover.. do as when you start thinking it is the time.. fast as u can.. soon as u can... hehh....the soon the better.. So guys...

Let us RECOVER ....  " join me in the recovery mode " heheh

yesterday don't mean shoot..


hmmm..weekend meant for training... ending up hurting myself with a minor set back...

Alhamdulllah... nothing serious n insyaAllah ill be back on my bike in a few days time i hope...

yesterday, while DHilling at 2011 BM Jamboree trail,i had underestimated the steep section which then caused my front end  to slipped & twisted .then,,,,,, "big badaboom,"( should be said like milla jovovich in fifth element).
IT was too slippery, the wrong decision was made in a split second caused me a minor ACJ. terkehel tulang selangka at the joint with bahu.. Ya Allah,  
Nasib baik ...small far... yes...n alhamdullillah today, feel much better n positive.

Yesterda,did my xray to confirm all, n doctor just give me a sling , pain killer & ubat surut bengkak... hai.. tak balut ke ape ke? hmm today will meet this tg urut for some tradtional massage.. hopefully can help to subdue the left clavicle elevation a bit....insyaAllah. pray for me guys....

events come n go... sometime... i wonder N start thinking.. that we human.. for muslim sake,, hamba Allah is so fragile n small.  1 small event can take our comfort n turn it into discomfort.. subhanAllah..

Oh Allah, please forgive me, please forgive us N guide us to the right path, let us always be within your vicinity of bless n guidance.

on the left. waiting for x ray process. "wat la i have put myself into hihihi"

my wife said sambil geleng kepala.. " suami aku yg buas, tak reti reti naik basikal" 

To all riders out there.. enjoy  riding & stay safe....the best you can...insyaAllah..

Sunday, 31 July 2011

july is done officially today


yes yes n yess... My July event are finally over.
Ended with Happy ride with Kulim happy ride team . Un planned event for me but i joined just to mix with the local team which is currently growing big as we speak.

the last July event for me was PCC presidential ride at Broga.

What can i say. It was huge.. I mean... The distance .. Off road distance .. Almost 65km trail. combination of 4 stages n damn man...

I was trainjing to stay fit for this event. yes alhamdullilah i survived. managed to complete all stages in 5H45m. Roughly. it was good n nothing serious unwanted issue except that i had lost my rear brake just after Stage 1.

Entering stage 2 , the need to brake on " lonkang " crossing blew me... Where is my brake? It was soft. N soft n hei.... Where was it? Hmmm the safety pin, the pad n the spring unit or something had gone somehow... I can see only the piston n the brake house... Shoot. 3 more stages to go n heavy Dh section will come...n i decided to continue with the event with the thought that... This time.. Ill have the slowest DH section around...

Yes n yes..DH was no longer fun for me... Had to brake before it started to decent to be able to control my soeed n taking care of the bike n myself from fallin.....

Afraid of the front brake failure was also in the air.. So, slower speed will do the job qhopefully. Yes.. Alhamdullilah i had survived.. Event the gruesome last Decent.heheh n yhr front brake had become soft also after the event... Almost running out the pads.. But.. Alhamdullilah once again.. The left front help me to survive.

it was good nursing mode experience. I had to tune my mind that.. U must go on but have really to care during DH. Meaning really really slow speed. N had managed to tackle the short steep technical decent with the thought that. I cant immediately stop with the front. N yes.. The need to be brave n just slowly go down the steep slope materialised. Heheh i wasnt dare to take still learning the be brave...usually ill chicken out n brake on n walk it.. Due to this issue, cannot brake to stationary... So.. Brave the decent......n extra control n decending manoevre...( deep sitting at the back ) all the time..almost sitting on the rear tire most of the time...

Come to thing of it... It was dangerous to continue but i had determined to finish the stages safely ,tackle the problem at each approach n decide on the DH sections difficulties.

I walked on a couple of steep with roots sections.. N the 1 in cp 3 before the sticker.. Somewhere in the wood.. Hahah

Overall.. It was fun.. The event was great n the trail was superb.. Ill come back anytime here.

The event also is the meetin point of frend.... So i got to meet my mainly southern one..

Haha.. So, the bikin things for me will stop for a month insyaAllah. N in ramadhan months.. I decided not to bike .. Fasting n fill the night with the required one the best i can... My target is to read n complete the whole Quran By this month.. InsyaAllah..

ya allah, please help me..

To all muslim friends... Happy ramadhan n let us upgrade our ibadah to a new level daily,weekly, yearly... Stop the bikin for a month n yes.. It wont do u any bad for that,, hehe but of course,,, YOU DeCIDE.....

Machine PM


Hmm. Yesterday i went to Bukit 3m in kulim for a short burn out session prior to the 60 km PCC Presidential ride. Hmm many unwanted were discovered. post thompson trail use.

I broke my FD
My front handle was loose.( became super loose during decent)

Then i had to send for service to Pian.

Hmm duit lagi. Then after broga, sure kena hanto service juge...

Why pian aka RS Tokkun.

So far,

His the one yg dok repair my bike, setting up, awkward setting the way i like it,
Modify when other mechanics might end of ideas.

List of my awkward setting done by Pian.

Too many for my bike.
I have about 4 mtbs . Used items which i bought n upgraded from time to time. From local source to international & 90% are used items. Usually i just give the idea n swapping parts the way i thought it will be good for some reason n Pian is the place to do the job.
Take off itemx from bike A to be put at bike B n so on. Modify parts by grinding, drilling n everything.. You name it. Kalu kedai Kereta, like pimpin the ride here.i would like to test the parts n ride. after testing it, will ask pian to change the unit to another. Heheh of course, kena bayo le..

Pian will fix the bike the way the rider fix their bike during the event. ( on going event) haha.. N this one time, he fixed the v brake issue with simple touch after other mechanic was stucked with it about 2 hours.

What else wshould i say... Im not into raring cause.. Too lazy ... But i guess.. I know where to go n yes can compare the quality in the services...

Most of the northern bikers might know his shop n benefited accordingly but some might had different view. Hei.. Tepuk tangan tanya tangan. Le.. Kedai mana yg kamu suke hanto utk repair bike?.. For me... The shop is one shop ill go n visit along with others.

So go n visit..

Location: Cheruk Tokkun, next to the mosque.

Or call him...

1 more to go for July Event

Assalammualaikum & alhamdullilah.

 Done 2 & 1 more to go & everything was ok.

Setup the heaviest bike i can put on with big fat DH tires at front ( 2.55 WTB weirwolf LT) & 2.35 Continental gravity with triangle knob.  Damn.
It was so heavy & sloppy on the tar. but once entering offroad ( sand & small gravel ) it was not bad. Just that im not too strong to go faster . hehe It was a good training  i hope..

Kayuh Bendang 2011 was fun. The event was organized systematically & in the beginning i cant imagine that it could be that fun. ( I hate straight flat trail because i cant push. i have no mental strength for that. if there is hill... ill enjoy. but, this time around i had registered again just to push myself on the flat. wanna see how im  coping after a year. This year, they offered 1 section of hill which was just great & something to look forward too in the event.

Completed the trail at 1028 & damn... so  so so tired & hungry.  Didnt bring along any food & only ate a banana at CP2. i thought it will be a lazy sunday ride. but .. hmm when you are in big group & everybody was pushing... you tend to do the same i guess. at least up to your limit. & yes, i did push up to my limit..with no energy supplement... i end up drinking almost 20 cups of free vico drink after the ride. haha..

Enough there..

Another endurance event will take place. final event in july & yeah.. can be said before Fasting month...

PCC presidential ride. 60km of road.. & hell people talk about how hard the trail is & so ... hmm.... so.. i guess.. need more training to survive.

Ok guys.. anybody goin to Semenyih??? see ya there on the 24th. insyaAllah..

May Allah be with you..

My Kayuh Bendang story... 
( Forgot to turn on at the start & only turn on after 10-15 minutes)

Tuesday, 5 July 2011

1 done.... 2 more to go. for July events....


Thompson trail mit Geng pedalling dude...& KL bound group..

hmm...  it was fun...

You name it.. u got it..

good fellow riders & great epic ride trail..

wanna come again?? yeah...  insyaAllah..

Enjoy every second of it..

My first time was last year with Extension fullsus bike.. it was  a mistake... enjoyed the long DH section but suffered the rest of the loop on climbing..

This time.. i brought the beast.. XC fullsus... hmm...  great on climbin & hell superb on DH section...

only i need more training to go faster at the last climbin section...

changed front tire from 2.0 to 2.1 blue groove : for high roller with wider tire for "confident" front traction during DH. ( own spec & do not compare... can comment of course)

Maintain 2.0  for rear..for climbing efficiency... hehe but this high roller XR1 bontrager sufferd the slippery section ( mini tar berlumut)at bukit meluat... .. meluar sungguh.. kena dua tiga kali unwanted spinning.. terus draining my energy & the rest...

Managed to climb to Boh Shop from the last pitstop.... but was already knackered.  tried on middle ring but cannot last longer & had to switch to granny.

He he.. need the 32x36T combination soon... to go faster  for me. hehe..
saw those with 10 sp enjoyed the luxurious of having that ratio... damn...

Hahah.. overall

The organizer held this event beautifully .. & The event theme " Santai ride " was INDICATED CLEARLY..

Fun team to be with.. as ever.. again this.. time.. no doubt...

( check on their Blogspot for further stories)

Overall.. this is what riding in Malaysia is all about.. the beauty of it...


To riders out there in the world,

u may ride for a place, competing level, gain better health & so...

in here.. we are proud to bring close friendship as the reward. ( of course , everywhere else does the same i hope)

Ha ha .. enjoy..
