Last sunday,I chose to ride my bicycle with my friends in Putrajaya.I was not feeling well a few days before,But I forced myself to be active instead of resting at home and feeling misery alone.It has done me a lot of good.Instead of my original plan to cycle only 10km,I ended cycling 20km and visiting two good locations by the Putrajaya  lakes for shooting photos.My gloomy feelings turned me into a happy man just by cycling.

I don't know what went into my body or mind,but I felt energetic and happy after the ride.We chatted and laughed along the route and at our pitstops.This is not my first experience but it is one of the benefits of cycling in a group of good friends.Others also have simialar good experience/benefits from cycling.It is also a way to de-stress after a week of working.If you are not into cycling,walking is also a good activity with similar benefits.By the way,I do both cycling on weekends and walking on weekdays.

From my observations,my twice a month cycling is not adequate for my aging body to keep fit and healthy.I need to cycle every week with friends.On some weekends,I am not free due to family get together and social functions.To keep once a week cycling,I plan to cycle on Wednesdays as well.

To add more fun to our cycling,many of us take photos of our cycling activities as well as the places we passed through.

To my peers-those in lates 50s and early 60s,let us stay active,fit and healthy.I bet you,it is more fun than being sick!Just look at the black swans who keep pedalling when they are in the water..

Cerita Kedaikopi : # 86-31.03.2002

The only way we're going to lose our relevance is if we stop learning..

"I have been reading your 'Cerita Kedaikopi' stories but I still have

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?

'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
