It has been a while since I last rode a bicycle. In fact – it has been probably almost 7 years or so, as my last recollection of riding a bike was me doing some crazy biking during the transition from my job in Cuscapi to Accenture! I guess – from that point onwards I got lazier and couldn’t be bothered to ride! In fact – I transitioned into riding motorcycles, which reminds me that I need to ride my bike more. Sigh.
Yesterday – as I was very bored, very very bored indeed – I decided to head over to Pedalspot in SS2 to checkout on bikes. Nope – I wasn’t planning to get any but my eyes couldn’t take off this Brompton!
Oh wow. Its a limited edition Brompton! Looks super awesome. Ponder for about 15 mins and then boom, another impulsive purchase!
That night itself I went to Desa Park City to get myself acquainted with the bike. Was able to get about 11.5km over an hour. Clearly – I am not fit!
This morning, I also decided to bring the bike over to Putrajaya and cycle all around. I didn’t use Strava or anything – so just myself and Apple Watch. More than enough. Just need to make sure I don’t stress myself too much. My legs was jellied, a clear sign that I’ve not been cycling much. Its ok, I do plan to cycle more often with this new purchase 🙂
Hopefully – I can do at least 2 nights of cycling. Yes – I must. I must cycle more. With the Brompton, I can just leave it in the car and change in office and straight go and cycle somewhere. Probably not around the office though lol.
One of those days that I got off the swimming pool and told myself that I need to write more on my blog. I know its useless because I don’t have much audience but by writing on here, I do improve on my typing skills (lol) and also my comprehension skill.
The photo shown above is a photo of inside of a temple in Kuala Lumpur. The temple has been visited by many photographers (including me). I’ve been to this temple way too many times that I am bored and can’t think of what should I take photo. Perhaps I need to explore outside the state in order to take more nicer photos. My bike is really collecting dust!
It has been a while since I read my banking book. Been busy to be honest. Handled a lot of stuffs, but I figure if I don’t read a book in the morning or at night on banking, I won’t be doing much reading. I need to get myself familiar with banking in order to do my work better.
So today – I am back at reading the Principles of Banking. I must say is a very good book to give a background, and 6 months passed, a lot of terms mentioned in the book is very very familiar. When I first started reading the book, a lot of the information felt gibberish but now most of it, I have heard!
So anyway – today is really simple. The book talks about the different types of products in a bank (obviously looks familiar!).
Well – looks familiar but not the same. Most of the products shown above I have encountered before in my work but of course on the surface level. I am not part of the business but classified more like a support function. I vow to do some infographics to show what I learn here, but of course it takes time.
I am trying to use InDesign, but I must say is freaking difficult. Using PowerPoint is so much easier to do. Perhaps because I’ve been using it for years!
