1. I will be going to Bandung, Indonesia again on 28th Feb – 3rd March to attend a Facebook Ads private workshop. The program will be conducted by the same underground marketers I met last month. Looking forward to learn their trade and network with them after the event, and look into possibilities of doing a product launch joint venture.
2. I have to watch what I eat and come up with something to withstand their chain smoking habits though; last trip I went there things didn’t go well for me! I wasn’t prepared for the cold weather, the food was too oily / starchy and sitting in discussion with their chain smoking habits set off my dizziness and nausea feeling! Yucks.
3. I started recovering during the Chinese New Year and went back to gym again last week. My training session is all about getting back my form and gradually return to lifting heavy again. It’s obvious that I shrunk quite a bit when I look into the mirror. LOL
Not good. First, I was plagued with Internet problems at home that forced me to work from Starbucks or friends’ homes and offices since May. For all the time spent on driving to and fro these places, it ate into my time to train my regular 3 times a week schedule at the gym.
While Internet speed improved miraculously two months ago, it was already time I hit the seminar and workshop circuit which demanded even more of my time. Thus my gym training had been reduced to a frequency of just once a week or less.
Now that my 3 day workshops are done with, I am now gradually resuming my training at the gym starting with two times a week.
However there is an upside to it: the lesser training frequency bought me time to gain the much needed weight that I had been losing all these while (since I am poor at weight gaining).
The most important thing right now is not to discontinue the training that I had started in May 2011, as I promised myself to keep this ongoing.
I had seen how the Yonif Raiders trained while I was staying in their camp in Palembang. The Green Mountain Rangers team training together outside of their regular Sunday airsoft game also motivates me. There is no reason to slack. After all, I have all the time in the world to sleep after I am dead. 🙂
28 & 29 September 2013. An unforgettable weekend in Palembang with the Indonesian airsofters and the badass Yonif Raider 200, who are the regular army of Indonesia! It was both great fun and honor to play with/against some of the army members and learn their ways and discipline. Truly “cepat, senyap, tepat”!
BTW if you want to look up who these Yonif Raider badasses are:
Correction: this was taken on April 24, not April 26 as stated in the video.
Squats @ 183 lbs x 1 rep (maintained)
Bench Press @ 150 lbs x 1 rep (went up +11 lbs)
Deadlift @ 260 lbs x 1 rep (went up +11 lbs)
I currently weigh 132lbs. An improvement from 4 weeks ago still. HUAH!
After this, I will be starting a new cycle of different work outs; it won’t be as strenuous as this one – not only was at the limits of my physical strength, I wasn’t making much improvements already and I was at the risk of falling sick.
However it will be compensated with a higher rep count for each workout.
