Selamat Hari Raya!

To all our Muslim friends!

I’m going to Romania tomorrow for one week for work… so Dav will be alone. The Rugby World Cup finals just ended and there’s certainly alot of ‘noise’ outside our flat. I think England fans were not very impressed with the results (England lose to South Africa).

Anyway, today we did something very exciting. We bought ourselves one bicycle each! It is surely not cheap … so, it’s one step nearer to better health! hehehehehe The bicycle was tested when we found out that the store dont deliver it. We had to either (a) cycle home – it’s not very near or (b) go to nearest tube to Wimbledon and then cycle home. Whatever it is, we still have to cycle home.. i wasnt that confident that I can do it… but am happy to annouce that we arrived home in one piece!

So here’s the specs of our bikes:
