That day training was changed to Penang Water Sport Center instead of training base at Macallum Street. Why? because we can rent 2 boat at Water Sport Center to compete with each other like Junior vs Senior or Mix Junior with Senior A vs Mix Junior with Senior B. If always training with own boat at Macallum Street, we can't get into mood of competition.
If you have another boat to race with, you just can't let go and loss to the other boat. it actually more excited and more fun. This world is full of competition, there old Arab quote that describe:
At home, I compete with my brother. I combined with my brothers, we compete with cousin brothers. I combined with my brothers , joined with cousin brothers, we compete with neighbour. I combined with my brothers joined with cousin brothers and neightbour, we teamed up to compete with next village. If we combined my brothers, cousin brothers, neighbour, next village, we compete with others state.....
Here it tell competition everywhere. Human behaviour originally is to compete, to race, to fight with each others. Peaces just a temporary, if not ally then enemy. even enemy, you also can combined with secondary enemy then fight with major enemy.
So, we senior race with junior. we mix up junior and senior, then boat A race with boat B. if we combined whole team, we going to kick others team ass. simple as that! Are you all ready to kick your rivals ass?
Anyway, it tough to suddenly training with old boat. The boat is heavy, not enough leg room to extend leg, the seat is low to sit. overally it hard to row with old boat after we'd use the International Standard Boat approved by IDBF to training. Like computer, when you using Pentium MMX, you feel Pentium II is fast. After you use Pentium III, you think pentium II is ridiculous slow. However, when you use Pentium IV, you just wish that you have core2 duo core processor or quad core processor. if before you have Pentium IV, Pentium III or II exist, you know Pentium MMX is the faster processor you have. you don't even blame it take whole to start an application. However, people with Core2 duo processor just complain it take ages to start up or print a document......syiksss!!!
After trainng, we went to eat Bak Kut Teh near Padang Dato Keramat. The Bak Kut Teh located outside the sony shop lot

After a vigorous exercise, people normally will go for a big meal except making love, you eat before you have sex....! eh....why i blog till sex? I think that it for today post.... XD
Penang Forward Sports Club (PFSC) was established in 1978 by a group of jogging enthusiasts. The only activity at that time was jogging, hiking, etc. In 1986, PFSC was registered as the official sports club in Penang.
In the early eighties, water sports in Penang started to boom. The Penang State Government placed high focus in its tourism industry to attract visitors around the world. Realizing the importance of making Penang state proud, PFSC has extended its activities in the dragon boat event.
The team’s very first race started way back in 1982. All members came as one team to win. The reason behind this was the great leadership, teamwork, team spirit, discipline, and co-operation among the members that made PFSC the champion. Such achievement provided PFSC the confident to come back for more. Since then dragon boat has been one of the activities that stood out for the club. We have participated in this sport in subsequent years and have built a strong vision.
