Took the opportunity to meet up with Raz & Zalia, two of my close friends who are expecting their first baby. We decided to meet up at Itallianies, The Curve. Raz will insya-Allah deliver her baby girl in mid-August whilst Zalia's EDD is in November.
We ordered 2 starters, Caesar Salad and another dish which name I have forgotten but I know that there's artichoke in it.
Each of us ordered a different pasta. Topics of conversation range from in-laws to work but the most talked about was delivery, of course.
Zalia's Penne Carbonara (I think..)

1. 10.50 a.m. - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
GSC Mid Valley
We went to 7-Eleven and got ourselves raincoats and snacks. We bought breakfast opposite Bayu Beach Resort. Alhamdulillah by 7.30 a.m., the rain had stopped so we can watch the race in peace.
Upiq's Cheerleading Team
With fellow participants, Julie & Bandit
Amy and Faiq arrived at the finishing line at about 11.30 a.m. Amy and I waited at the finishing line while Jan and Faiq went to the side at about 50m towards the finishing line. Rafiq had requested that Faiq ran with him to his victory. Infact I saw many people doing that.
As I saw my husband running towards the finishing line, I beamed with pride. My heart bursts with joy upon seeing him running towards victory. This is his 4th triathlon and even though I felt proud when he told me his victory stories of the past 3, being there to witness the moment was a different feeling altogether. I watched in awe at the man who was about 150kg almost 5 years ago. At that time he never even dreamed of going jogging, let alone participate in this kind of event. Who would've thought that he was able to go the distance and inspire others? To cross the boundaries that he never imagined he would. And for his size, to not be the last to cross that finishing line.

Li'l Bo Peep
After hanging around the race site, we went back to the hotel. It's pool time for Faiq and Babah! Faiq enjoyed it tremendously, running from the adult pool to the children pool.
