Hey guys and gals here, did you see me at the Penang Bridge International Marathon? I was just came back from the events. I feel it is too waste that I didn't take my camera along, because my sister is currently using @Singapore. A few great announcements to you!

Wow! How come? Don't shocked! The young man is from Kepala Batas, he was just graduate from secondary school. He was just pass the car license and need to congratulate to him won the grand prize! Alright, a lady from Penang won a motorcycle!

I didn't snap any photos for this event, so hopefully you can go and visit the blog of who have participated in this event or else the official website of this event. Anyway, our dearest chief minister YB Lim Guan Eng was there and he gave a great speech to us. From his speech, he mentioned that our purpose participate in this run is not win, important is you can run through the marathon! As a penangite, we must always support the events which held in Penang!

Besides that, the organizing chairman YB Danny Law Heng Kiang was giving a speech which say much of thank you to every participant and the visitors from oversea. He also congratulate the winners of this marathon and welcome the tourists visit Penang.

Lastly, from my opinion. In this great marathon, which I have first time join. I get many of newly view in Penang and community. I realized that non only the school events I can join this holidays! Even any events I can go support it! I wondered that there was many supporters and over thousand of volunteers helping there!

Was it tiring running along the Penang Bridge?? I used to join marathons during my school days but I lack the stamina and determination to win. :/
