Me@ Terry Fox Run 2007

It is now 1.15pm,7th November and am sitting down at Starbucks enjoying my cup of Latte while waiting for my customer. Thought of popping in to my blogspot to do more updates of what i did last weekend. My friends had been screaming at me why i haven't been posting their photos of the Terry Fox event. So, decided to do it now so they can all be in my blog. Hahahaha....

Yup, last week Sunday(4th November 2007) was the Terry Fox run at Lake Garden. Decided to do some charity for this cancer fund foundation since a lot of good things have come to me this year. Time to contribute back, don't you think so? I was waiting for this run for the past one week and finally when Sunday comes....i could not wake up! We were suppose to gather at the Lake Garden @8.45am. I woke up at 8.00am and was hungry. I even had time to do a nice oatmeal with raisins & almonds for myself. So that wasted me another 20 min. So by the time i reached Lake Garden, it was 8.45AM. The place was jam packed with cars and mountain of people!! When i reached to the registration site, t-shirt that i booked earlier was sold off cos i came late. Bummer....Luckily, they got one last piece which is XXS. It just fits perfectly....

However, I was also waiting for another couple friends to come and they were late as well! So by the time they reached, it was already 9.30am. By that time, everyone already finished their run and start drinking the free Milo, eating muffins, and bananas! Hmmmm.....

The muffins were given out FREE to participants....I thought i had to purchase to do the charity but in fact they were like 5-6 boxes free muffins. It was really yummy and to the company/person who gave this out was really kind
