但我想知道 你敢不敢像个为爱疯狂的痴心汉那样 勇敢为自己的梦想去冒险？
但我想知道 你是否曾经深入自己的悲伤 生命中的各种背叛是否使你心胸更开阔
我想知道 你是否能和悲伤共处 而不是一味地只是逃避它或忽视它？
我想知道 你是否能够完全体会自己和他人的喜悦？你是否能够尽情狂舞 心醉神迷地手舞足蹈
我不再乎你是否对我说了真话 我只想知道 你是否为了诚实对待自己而欺骗他人
我想知道 你能否和挫败共处 站在高处对着银色的满月大喊：我可以！
你要住在那里 拥有多少的财富 这些我都没有兴趣
但我想知道 在历尽整夜的悲伤 失望和疲惫之后 你是否按时起床为你的孩子准备早餐？
你的经历是什么 读过什么书 我对这些没兴趣
但我想知道 当其它人的垮下来时 能够支撑你的是什么力量？
我想知道 你能否自己独处 即使在空虚的时刻 你也能以独处为乐？

Experiences and Knowledge Gained:
Never had I run a marathon with such an ardent supporter - Tokyo Marathon 2009 (I can do it again)
The movies we shared together and the warmth I have in my arms.
Learning to ride a bike, fly a kite and take a bus to Malaysia.
Understanding your character and taking time to convince you

Hong Kong was ranked 6th, while Tokyo took the top spot.
We were in HongKong For the Standard Chartered Marathon in 2007. It was breath-taking. Now we are heading to Tokyo. According to the report, it is the most expensive city in Asia. Hmmm, we are not pulling out just yet. Even when the Honda F1 team decided that 2008 is their last F1 season. The global economic crisis is taking a toll on EVERYONE.
Nope, we dream and we believe. We will live our dream. We are going to Japan come next march and we know YOU are helping.

Quest for Sponsorships for Tokyo Marathon 2009
I will use this blog as a media to reach out to people to sponsor coach and I for a trip to Tokyo, Japan in march 2009 for the Tokyo Marathon.
The Passionate Runners
Coach - Mang Tsz Kit, Jackie aka Cityrunner, 26
Myself - Ong Wei Peng, Marco aka Crazyhorse, 25
Achievements so far
Having 9 marathons between us in 4 years to date 1 Dec 2008. Will be completing 1 more marathon on 7 December.
I started in 2005 and had completed 4 marathons so far, Coach is one up, with a MILESTONE of 5 marathons.
Over the next few months running up to march next year, I will be constantly updating our training progress and this quest to find sponsors/ well-wishers for our trip.
Coach has this dream of letting people get involved in our training, without physically there. Of course, you can join us for trainings on Sundays at MacRitche Reservoir.
Sponsors could get their name and message on our running Tees. That is the one that we will be wearing for the event in Tokyo.
The sponsor with the highest amount credited will be able to choose to spread a message on both of our running attire.
No, we do not earn our keep as designers. But the design is really cute. Here. This will be how you can help two fellow Singaporean fulfill their dream.
We welcome kit sponsors too.
Goal of the Quest
We are looking to get enough to cover the expenses for about 8 days of accommodation and return tickets for Cityrunner and Crazyhorse.
Passion and why it sustains us to continue running.
Interested bidders/ fellow runners/ well-wishers can wire,do internet banking to the fellowing accounts.
POSB Savings – 109162469
OCBC Savings – 5383030227

Well, looking at the set of pictures, any frustrations are all gone. It's all worth it.
Nonono. I was saying about what used to be. Now, the whole issue is off the racks. Just like melamine-stained milk.
Spanning Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste, this extraordinary area holds the richest concentration of iridescent corals, fish, crustaceans, mollusks and marine plants in the world. Labyrinths of limestone reefs, extensive sea grass meadows and coastal mangrove forests attract sea turtles and giants of the sea such as humpback whales to feed, breed and rest in the rich and sheltered waters.
The problem is, the coral triangle is in a sorry condition now. It is polluted by sewage discharges, dynamite fishing and there is a strain on the marine resource as there is growing population living on the coastal lines.
6 countries in the coral triangle are trying to save the corals by setting more reef protected areas, giving them a breather from human activities.
Let's hope all plans go accordingly and the corals are saved. Friends, let's go diving soon. Even if the plans to save the fishes and the corals, I project to the see a vast difference in the waters. Hopefully, we are still seeing corals and not wasteland.
Come on, it is to our advantage that the coral triangle is so near to Singapore. We have to plan frequent trips man. Underwater, its a different world altogether.
God bless the waters.
Saving the Coral Triangle
Haha, I could give a major excuse by saying there is no time to blog. There is so many things on my mind. So many topics I want to share with everyone. So many thoughts to download onto the blog.
The Coral Triangle of Asia, The McCain, Obama Presidential Race, F1 Race that is coming to end, the leaders of the pack in the English Premiership(Liverpool FC) currently. Everything is just getting so exciting.
Ah..Have to catch up on my blogging..

Strength of the mind
If the body tires, the brain pushes,. If the impossible is to be achieved, the mind must be convinced. If you start believing, you are a step closer to winning.
The star of the 2008 Olympics so far has got to be Micheal Phelps. 8 Gold medals, 8 World Records in swimming.
The dedication he gives to swimming: "Eat, Sleep, Swim". Kudos.

A little bit of jam on the way to east coast park. Nowadays, driving a pleasure. Contemplating on changing my car into a sub-wedding car if I get an invite. Dawn to dusk again. Magical transition. Whole new meaning to relaxing in Singapore. You need a rabbit call Bui Kia that is the size of a 3 in 1 printer(Rabbit do not make a noise).
