No he didn't walk with the rest of the participants. But he did join in the warm up session in his thick leather jacket and long pants. Looking impossibly handsome at it too. LOL!

What? Kordel’s – Arthritis Foundation Malaysia Charity Walkathon
Where? Taman Jaya, Petaling Jaya.
When? 24 May 2009 (Sunday)
Who? Special appearance by Datuk Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor (Dr. SMS)
Arrrrgh! I jump fright out of bed when I saw the watch – 6:30am! Amelia supposed to pick me up at 6:00am !!! I was too late! Amelia had already gone but she left an sms saying that she had to go without me after she left like 20 misses calls! Waaaaa....! (Insert thousand of apologies to Amelia)
I was out the whole day and night the day before – morning (thread mill challenge @ 1-U), followed by Talentime Film screening and discussion, and later that night – volunteering in PM1 circuit run 2. I was totally drained out of energy when I reached home that night. (Note to self – remember to turn alarm on and reset ring tone from silence back to LOUD after movie is over).
Luckily, Taman Jaya is not that far away from my home. So, I ran down for the Rapid bus and then took an LRT to Tman Jaya. Taman Jaya was buzzing with walkers. Loud music (rock and roll) was playing. Participants were collecting their T-shirts.
The walk has yet to start....Phew! I was not late after all!
I met Aiman, Kevin, Amelia, Julie, Kei Ming, Choi and Cheang. Chatted with them while waiting for the VVIPs to arrive.
Dr. SMS arrived about 8am. Our very own.....astronaut, cosmonaut, angkasawan, spaceman, space participant...whachamacallit.
So, everybody was like waiting in Q to "posing maut" with Dr. SMS. He looked impossibly good in the morning like just walked straight out of a GQ magazine or something!
The wait was not over. We had to wait another 1/2 hour for another VERY VERY LATE VVIP. Finally she arrived and we were called to the start area for a warm up session, lead by a national walker. Oops, sorry forgot his name. :)
It's not Yuan Yu Fang. Heheh!
Dr. SMS also joined in the wam up session. Looking very pretty at it too. The cameras just love him!
BTW, He is a part time model too. You can find his face on the Milo can. :)
Cool. Calm. Suave. Handsome (Insert your own adjectives here). I'm sure lots of girls...and aunties were smittened that morning! LOL!
Personally, he looked kinda weird doing stretching exercise in his smart leather jacket and long pants. "Tak panas ker?"
But the real question is...What was he warming up for? Heheh!
He didn't join the walk and soon left Taman Jaya not long after the walkers were set off.
Participants of the walkathon raced in a team of 4.
They had to make 3 loops around the lake.
Too bad they don't have a prize for the most "fashionable team". This black with batik team sure win-lah. :)
Some celebrities spotted - JD and Charmaine Poo. Yes...They did rounds like the rest fo the participants. Congrats!!!!
That should be the way. It was a WALK-athon. Not a WARM-athon! LOL!
Lucky draw prize????
Dream on! Heheh! It was the promo trailer for a local bank. You have to dump in a sum of money into the bank to be in the running for a draw to win this.
The walk was fun...well at least from a photographer point of view. :)
Lots of free food, lovely goodies bags, hampers for grab and fun games.
Not forgetting the charity part too. They raised some money for the Arthritis Foundation Malaysia.
Well done to Kordel's and Arthritis Foundation Malaysia! What a fantastic "JOINT" effort....Can't resist the pun. :P
