In the past two weeks, I have been riding my bike. Not so much focusing on other things but just riding my bikes. The bike is super awesome. I somewhat rediscover what I enjoy about riding. The first few rides were about getting used to the bike. The photo below shows the ride on that day.
I am still learning on how to edit good video, and what makes great video – great. One thing that I know, is of course the synchronization of the music and the video. In which the video above has.
One of my friend did make a comment, I put in too much of my bike. Which I have to agree. Despite the fact that the video is about me and my bike, I think people will be more interested with the scenery and the views that I get to enjoy. Hence – I need to reduce the bike videos and add more travel things.
Had a chat with this guy. He explained to me the direction of the small road (B150). I have taken that road before during my GS days. I hope I will ride a GS again so that I can go into some crazy shit adventures!
Where I parked my bike. Right at the edge of Pekan Kerling. Had a quick coffee at Gerai Zainuddin and then proceeded to shoot some photo of the town.
The usual sight in small towns. Mak ciks that sells nasi lemak. I am pretty sure the nasi lemak is good because it seems that she is kept busy by customers. This is different from the other stall at the other corner which looked pretty quite.
Interesting store. If you look at the signboard, you can tell that the shop is pretty damn old. Such word like “Setor” are from the early 70s. It means shop. I would like to revisit one day and see what shop is this. Pretty coold indeed.
The shops are mostly closed. I guess it’s sunday, and it was pretty early
Interesting. It is a public market, but inside looks like only one shop ran by this Indian Muslim guy. He didn’t looked so friendly as such I refrained from taking any pictures.
Typical shop that we see in places like Kerling. Small and run by a family that’s pretty old. I bet the children are in KL doing some awesome business.

It has been a long while since the last time I rode my bike. Partly due to my busy schedule, and partly due to my minor home renovation. Now that everything is done – I took my bike out and do two of my hobbies which is motorcycle riding and photography. I remembered this place – Kerling during one of those my adventure days with Alex. We exited Lembah Beringin and then head over to road number 1. We came out thru Kerling. I remembered this place for having bunch of old buildings. Map below shows where Kerling is, and the photos of the shoot is in the attached gallery. Quiet town indeed!
Sudah sekian lama semenjak saya menunggang motor saya. Ini adalah kerana jadual saya yang amat sibuk dan pengubahsuaian rumah saya. Sekarang semua sudah selesai – jadi saya mula meluahkan masa untuk dua hobi saya iaitu menunggang motorsikal dan fotografi. Saya teringat tempat ini – Kerling, daripada salah satu pengembaraan bersama Alex. Kami keluar mengikut Lembah Beringin dan terus menuju ke Jalan Nombor 1. Kami tiba di Kerling. Saya teringat kawasan ini kerana kawasan ini mempunya bangunan yang lama. Di bawah ada peta kawasan ini, dan juga galeri gambar gambar saya. Pekan yang sepi!

It has been almost 2 weeks since I had a proper ride. I guess I seriously don’t have time. Been spending a lot of time at work. Barely checking my Instagram and my Facebook account at all during working days.
It’s funny, as much as I push for the notion of Work Life Balance, life has not been all like that. It’s more like Work Work. Tough life. Haha.
But it’s ok. We sometimes need to work hard to achieve what we want, if we don’t get it it’s really a disappointment. Though I felt tired at the end of every day, I still feel motivated.
Back to motorcycling. It’s a dangerous hobby, but if we play it safe it can be safe. No point riding at 200kmh if you know that a split second lapse of judgement will cause you dearly. That small fall can kill you. Seriously. Is it more dangerous than cycling doubt so.
Anyway – Life is a ride. We enjoy life, we enjoy the ride.
