Queen Bitch I.

It breaks my heart to say this, but Queen Bitch I (the first) has to go into early retirement due to some unfortunate circumstances. (inserts many broken heart emoticons) You know how much Queen Bitch I means to me – I got her sprayed in glitter pink (you can only see the glitter upclose) and I […]

Postcard from Hokkaido: Toyotomi, Nakagawa and Tokachidake

I’ve taken Tough Princess (my road bike) to quite a few countries in the past year and I’m really excited to be able to add Japan to the list! In Part 1 of my Postcard from Hokkaido series, I was in Rumoi and Wakkanai. In Part 2 here, I went to a few more places – […]

Postcard from Hokkaido: Rumoi and Wakkanai

When I heard Japan and cycling, it was enough to get me really excited!! I’ve always loved Japan and I’ve gone several times for both work and leisure, but while I’ve known Japan for its food (I absolutely love Japanese food!), sights, onsen and snowboarding, the thought of cycling there never occurred to me. Like, […]


That was how I would describe my Ironman 70.3 Bintan experience; simply because I cannot find any other word to describe it. It has been three weeks since and I’ve been to four different countries (Indonesia; Malaysia; Finland; Japan), so I’ve only managed to catch a breath properly now that I’m finally home. And over […]

Ironman 70.3 Bintan 2017: My first IM 70.3 podium omg.

All of us women were gathering around the start line on the shore, waiting for the Women’s wave (it wasn’t a rolling start), and I felt like I wasn’t ready for this race. To be honest, the last few weeks leading up to the Ironman 70.3 Bintan 2017 were quite bad for me. I was feeling […]

#RoadtoIM703Bintan2017 – some race prep stuff and taper symptoms

In just two days, I will be in Bintan (an island of Indonesia that is just 45 minutes away from Singapore by ferry) for my second Ironman 70.3 race this year. The past three months have gone by in a blur – with training (I went to Phuket for 2 weeks and was hospitalised when I returned), exciting work […]

Reaching out to youths

I’ve given talks to youths before – for two years I gave talks for Singapore GP on Formula 1 to secondary schools, and I’ve also visited schools to give career talks on stepping it out on your own to pursue your passion. Lately, I’ve been giving talks to youths for a more meaningful purpose – […]

11 funny anecdotes on 2 wheels

I’ve been cycling for over a year now (since I bought my Tough Princess roadie last April) and I’ve encountered some really amusing incidents, including the one where I ran over a chicken in Phuket. I don’t think the rooster died (phew) and my friends had a good laugh over it. Who the heck runs over […]
