I BECAME THE MOST POPULAR IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD,

 all becos' I bought a BICYCLE.  This is the City Bike Elops IF 

that made me a STAR ✨ with the ladies in my "Taman" (neighbourhood) overnight. Getting a bicycle has always been on "my bucket list. " I think it is about TIME to really start striking out the items on my list as:


All I want is to ride in the mornings and evenings after doing chores. I did some googling and thought about buying the bike online. But after reading some reviews - self-assembly, bicycle parts dented, insufficient screws and bolts for assembly, bike seat missing etc! Opps ... NOT GOOD!So I physically tested one and bought from Decathlon in Sri Damansara. WOW, the constellation was in alignment that night. This RM 899 model went for RM 632 as it was a demo model. I bought a mini basket and a hazard flasher light. 

Took it for a spin the next day when I met my walking "kakis" (legs, but commonly refers to buddies).

 These "kakis" also do some lame zumba together in the mornings!

All of us have not been on a bike for over 30 years. But nevertheless every one demanded a ride to relive our youth!

Such is the excitement in our mundane lives!



This lively lass rode straight into the bushes.

We had to slowly extricate her without scratching my NEW bike!! Sorry, I am a mean "kaki" (buddy)! 

Ahh, it was a good morning, and to many more rides together.

  1. Senang bersepeda di pagi dan sore hari, bisa olahraga dan memandang pemandangan alam di sekitarnya. Karena banyak pohon jadi teduh dan menyenangkan. Kegiatan bersepeda terasa fun. Dapat harga sepeda dari store online dengan harga terbaik adalah pengalaman yang menyenangkan pula kak. Aku jadi teringat saat high school dulu ketika akan berangkat sekolah juga naik sepeda mini dengan keranjang. Tapi sepedaku warna purple, bukan hitam ^^.....Di kanan kiri jalan menuju sekolahku adalah rice field...namun jika pulang sekolah terasa panas karena jam 2 siang pulangnya

    Have a nice day Kak ^____^

    1. Sepeda anda berwarna purple is COOL! Di Malaysia, murid murid jarang naik sepeda ke sekolah sebab berbahaya.

    1. TQ David, I think that many of the best things in life need not be expensive. Fresh air and sun shine is free, so is Nature.

    1. TQ Patsy, I only had one bike before this to get me to College as the bus ride took too long and I was always late. I am enjoying my rides very much

  6. Congratulations on your new wheels, it is well made bike that will give you miles of enjoyable riding. You are the envy of your kakis. Are you not suppose to wear a helmet? It is the law here.
    I haven't rode a bike for a long time, think I will keep walking, safer for me and others.

    1. We do not have to wear helmets while biking, only mandatory for motor cycles. But I will get a helmet as my kakis say it is safer

  9. Great to hear you come back riding a bike!
    Riding a bike is amazing, you will see! You could enjoy many places in your town and its surroundings. Biking is better than running, especially when the bike has off-road wheels!
    Enjoy your bike!
    Looking forward to see the pictures you took while you will be riding the bike ^o#o :-)

  14. Riding a bike is currently hype in Jakarta, not sure in other cities outside Jakarta. And my hubby bought it. Firstly I rejected the proposal when he said want to buy one. Becos I thought he just rode it for a few months then became bored 🤣🤣. But apparently he can prove to me that he 's really consistent using it.

    Me myself not interested to buy, because mostly the road users in Jakarta are crazy 🤣🤣. They even have heart to use bicycle line padahal mereka pakai motorcylce 😅. That's why lah I don't want to ride , karena worried pula accident 😂
