Lao Sai King
I think I shd be able to sleep early today since I'm quite worn out from the jog I had this evening. I need to figure out what's really wrong, and how to salvage the situation, and jogging is the best way to sort things out in my mind. In the past, I really hate this exercise. I find it boring n tiring, n I could hardly pass my 2.4km run. It totally sucks..
But after NS, I've found the benefits of having long distance jogs. When I was in JC, I'll kill myself if u want me to run 5km, but it's different now. Jogging clears up my mind, relaxes by body n perks me up after that, endorphines perhaps the big culprit. Since I have a lot to think about, I went for a 5km one. A lot went through my brain as beads of perspiration rolled down my face n shoulders. Looking at the orange evening sun setting slowly from the sky, I recalled what did I do wrong n how can I rectify them.
Slowly, the distance accumulated n I had already covered half of the run. My breathing became harder n my sweat starting to pour. My lack of stamina was prominently showing, but I had to carry on, or I won't be home b4 it turns dark n the scary monsters come out in the park.
Then at the 3.5km mark, lightning struck. An ache started to surface at my lower abdomen. Oh no, it's the most dreaded feeling during a jog. It's the lao sai feeling. "Lao sai" means diarrhoea in the Hokkien dialect. WTF man, I still have a long 1.5km to complete but this stupid lao sai feeling is fast making me feel like shit. I couldn't carry on jogging anymore, with an extra pounding on the ground by my foot, the load of shit comes closer of exploding out of my anus.
So slowly, I walked the remaining 1.5km, keeping my abdomen as stable as possible. Afterall, I'm the lao sai king, nobody can have more experience than me containing a load of "express-shit". I have the lao sai feeling at every situation possible in life. While driving, taking MRT, taking bus, having exam, swimming, canoeing n even snorkeling. 1.5km is short when u jog, but it can feel like a lifetime if u're walking the distance with a lao sai feeling.
Eventually, I managed to finish the 1.5km unscathed, get on my bike n "fly" back home to bomb the base. The lao sai helped me too, maybe my brain is too full of shit, n it helped to clear quite a bit. There's still quite a bit to think about, maybe I'll go for another one tomorrow, hopefully the lao sai feeling won't come again this time.
Something interesting to share with my readers.. Recently, there's a new advertisement showing on TV. It's one by Gatsby. N since my mobile's ringtone is the same as the music in the Gatsby advertisements, I went to check my phone, only to find out it's from the TV. Check this out..
Seriously, only Takuya Kimura can pull off this advertisement with such sexiness. Even I'm attracted to it, but i'm not gay alright. If u dun believe me, check out the same ad below by another person. Don't blame me for not warning u. Stop eating if u are, cos u're very likely to spit everything out.
