My husband is a person who loves cycling and bicycle, and anything related to it, and it is a passion since he was small. Today, he went for an official race of mountain biking, the first one he does in Spain. He is not alone because Jose and Jorge are there too.

But the race is not started only today, in fact it acquires few days earlier, to be exact a month. (What a month??!!). Setting, trying, adjusting, training (which I doubt), finding equipments this, that, this, that and furthermore we live quite far from Kak Akma´s, so include the traveling too. (Okay, exaggerating, we went to Kak Akma´s place on hari raya, exactly a month before - for setting. The next visit, is for race day).

So, in the morning they put the bicycle, prepare some errr preparations..before leaving the house. We ladies stay at home as it is cold, and to go there with children who are constantly eating and easily get way! So I am not sure what happen there but..

This is the time where they waited for starting...Look, Titan Dessert tu...This is what my hubby really aim for..

Early stage or the race...

Not sure which part of the race...

But at the end, everybody able to finish safely, (mountain biking remember), coverred with mud and happy.

My hubby ends at 51 out of 100++ participants for his category. (Not bad, as I have no faith that he is able to finish it, hehehe, sorry darling). And he is looking forward to join more races like this.

And we would like to thank all the sponsors, Kak Akma and Jose, Jorge and Ana. Hope to see you again..And for freinds like Lehman (Didie´s half), "meh le join race wooo", (sorry, wa plak yang lebih) and Rahman, " sambar je Merida tu, tak teruja ke??"

Biblioteca y Tecnologia

Yesterday , I was in the library looking for an old article from Journal of Consumer Research dated back in the year of 1978. An old one but very prominent. From the system, it was a microfilm, so but my limited Spanish, I asked for access. Then, the librarian who attended me was shocked. He said nobody has asked for his assistance for quite sometime...

I myself was startled too. I tried to recall the last time I used microfilm....hmmmmm had I used it before? The librarian and I started to make jokes (imagine with very limited vocabulary - less than 100 root words) about old movies, Elizabeth Taylor and Burton, how antique the machine was..and he is he had to focus the machine till I can read the wordings cause he could not read anything. And he kept laughing (so I had to laugh with him). At the end ,I really laughed with him cause his act reminded me of my dad while he tried to read my sister´s report card without his reading glasses. (And that is the best time for my sister to get him sign it with pre-act: hide dad´s glasses).

Why I am making this blog post today? I don´t know. I have the Raya entry in due. I guess my freinds here are dying to see it. But I feel unease today. My worry creeps deeper and I feel bad. Need to talk to someone...
