Brompton Cycling


First, let me welcome a VIP Brompton rider to The Fold-our My Brompton Malaysia (MBM).He is Dato' Seri Seri Dr. Ir Zaini Ujang, the Chief Secretary of the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water.Herewith I am sharing the photos of the MBM members going for a picnic at Presint 10.


With baskets full of sandwiches, cakes, and drinks.


The Brompton Riders ready to go..



I got my Brompton on 29/9/2011 just a day before my 59th birthday.The next day, we have a ride together with a few friends who bought Brompton bicycles much earlier than me.Our group is open to all types of bicycles.



As more and more people started to buy and ride Brompton, a few of my friends formed MBM and I joined the group as an ordinary member.Personally, I prefer just to be riding with my friends, irrespective of their bicycle types and brands. Cycling is more important than the bicycle.However, when it comes to portability and involved travel with car or train or aeroplane, I must admit that Brompton is my top choice.However, for general purpose cycling, I prefer Batavus from Holland.If I were to go bike touring, then the American Surly may be my preferred choice.



Brompton is very British and only made in west London.It has its own cult. And being more than 40 years old, it has developed its own culture and riders set up Brompton Cycling Groups all over the world.Just like the Mac computers.

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

ON RAINS

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…
