10 Reasons Why You Should go to Gym

Robert's Google+



Gym business in Malaysia are doing really well



The fitness center is a real business model due to an increasing demand for better health. At the recent budget 2017, there was a column purposely quoted that there will be a tax relief on Gym membership fee.





1. Heart Coronary Disease 


The statistic number never lie, still, no one bother about it. It seem like over the years, people are getting some awareness and conscious about their well being. It could explain why Gym business is flourishing than before ?


2. Vegetable and Fruits are just lazy advice







It is truly blessing living in a place where vegetables and fruits are cheap and all of us can easily access and afford buying dozens of them. But, the fact is those nutrients are acquired too easily. 


Some believe that all of the vegetable and fruit's rich nutrients will turn into fats whenever the body deemed the minimum daily nutrient is met for inactive person. As for the physically active, the body will adapt and digest all the rich nutrients on a maximum capacity. 


3. Gym is your favorite running track







The loud speakers with random good songs, television with great channels are some of the main attraction inside gym will keep you distracted during your exercise. The distraction is mainly to numb / weaken the body's pain sensory and will keep you going.


4. Outdoor versus Gym


A confined area with air-condition and less mosquito bite. No strangers talking to you in the middle of your exercise trying to seek your attention and ask your knowledge of the direction of nearest toilet. 


Besides, there are no way any outdoor park has dumbbell, locker room, changing room and a trainer always walking around anxiously with their well-built body. 


5. Yoga Class



Some fitness center offers Yoga class at a certain time in a day. Yoga is a no joke physical activity. It could turn one man with 130KG into a 70KG man with right amount of effort and time. 



6. Preparation for your marathon




Penang Marathon 2015. More info at 27 Photos of Penang Marathon 2015


Another hype thing to do for an adventure-seeking Malaysian definitely not excluding the marathon events. Your first or next marathon is crucial with the right mindset is to do all the necessary preparation mentally and physically. 


You would not risk your body getting a tremendous amounts of shock after a 21km half marathon due to lack of physical training and mentally unprepared. 



7. Good Peer Pressure


Everyone should have a role model in life. There is always someone better than us and train harder than us. All of them come to Gym for the same purpose. The strong will of carry on sometimes is weak in ourselves and strong on other good people.


Newcomer at Gym always serves a reminder to us why we come here at the first place. a right amounts of good peer pressure work fine for the gym newcomers and the veteran.



8. Avoiding 9 out of 10 of Death cause in Malaysia 


It seem like the dead cause list always blame us on our smoking habit. Can't they just tell us what to do for nonsmokers out there ? I do not know the future of Malaysia death cause but today we are narrowing the problem to two, Mosquitoes and Heart.


As you can see here the problem is pretty much solved by the introducing of Gym. You could opt for the nearest gym. One of the clear example is the Fitness center located at newly opened Sunway Velocity Mall 2016. 


By the time you know it, we are the lucky few avoiding 10 out of 10 death causes in Malaysia. As for those who are smoking, there was a reliable study indicated that strong will for exercise could deter one desire to smoke.


9. The Influence of Instagram 



I find it nonsense as one of the widely spread article actually quoted like this" Singapore has the healthier people in the world". Check it out at Singapore healthiest country .Perhaps, they play too much Instagram already.


Social media such as Instagram is a great way to spread incredible health message by images such as six pack and yoga pant. Everyone seem to have an inevitable desire to upload something like that in Instagram to showcase us the beauty of having a healthy and attractive body.


There was a joke told by a funny man that women notice two things a man has, your job title or your physical attributes. 




10. Make use of your sport apparel



The rising of sport apparels has attracted us to buy the under Armour with our hard-earned cash. Buying and wearing sport apparel is always a form of motivating us to do more activities. As usual, the gym has a dress code that every members should acknowledge the important of attire within the compound.


As if you have a pair of running shoes and a comfortable sport apparel at your wardrobe please make use of it there are tons of Gym at your area.

McDonald's is on smart move closing down few of its outlets in order to maintain a good annual balance sheet. Is McDonald's growing too fast ?

Airasia KUL to TWU Review

Robert's Google+



Airasia Flight from Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 to Tawau Airport is approximately 2 Hours and 50 minutes




Distance between Malaysia and Tawau is by estimation 1800 kilometers according to disween.com. Many would like to find the answer to the price of one way ticket from Airasia.






At the global oil price tumbling down to as low as below $50, one way trip from KLIA2 to TWU costs me RM210 per trip. The total price for a return trip is paid at RM422.24


Author would really like to know when global oil price will ever increase to $100, the price for return trip from KLIA2 to TWU will it still remain the same or double? But, it seem like no human truly has the ability to foresee the future.


Besides, Airasia is really the best Malaysian can choose to fly with on the domestic flights due to its cheaper price. I would continue using Airasia flying on domestic flight. Those who are affluent are more likely to choose MAS.


Well, In the process of restructuring, MAS realized it important to lower down their pricing which sometimes when you are comparing price between MAS and Airasia, you would actually see a competitive price offering by both airlines. MAS was never late to change it is now 2016. But, for decades, Airasia brand is deeply rooted in Malaysia mind


Airasia's slogan "Now, everyone can fly" is implying now, Malaysian can fly without burn a hole in the pocket.


In addition, Airasia Big points is definitely one of the best feature. I have 188 points after completed a return trip from KUL to TWU costing me RM422.24. It pretty intriguing that from my point of calculation, I will need to take lots of KUL to TWU in order to redeem Kuala Lumpur to Gold Coast which cost 30,000 points. Anyways, I was not planning to go Australia Gold coast at this moment.


There was a small matter encountered during boarding the plane, why would an immigration counter approval is required for me to travel from East Malaysia to West Malaysia ? Yes, you have to show some ID in order to pass the gate even under domestic flight





It was an overwhelming experience exploring Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 for the first time in my life as a Malaysian. Lots of eateries and most importantly spotted 3 Starbucks at different corner throughout KLIA2.





There are few options going to KLIA2. I pick KLIA express out of Grabcar and bus to go there. It cost RM55 per trip from KL Sentral. Probably it will be my last time riding KLIA express because I found out there was a bus station at KL Sentral though KLIA express is much safer and swifter.



Airasia check in machine



Let say you forget to check in through website, there are dozens of helpful check-in machines for your convenience. As if you have check-in through website, there is no need for you to use the check-in machine service and should proceed to document check counter for boarding pass. (It was a free to ask the counter for boarding pass)




Airasia KLIA 2 weight detector



Airasia has been a very friendly airline towards the baggage section. This bag definitely fit the requirement as a hand carry. I have seen someone with much larger bag still qualify as hand carry.





Before boarding the plane to Tawau, "Quizinn" a really cute name that sound like "Cuisine" is a big food court with multiple eateries section. People has spoken many times, eating at airport is definitely gonna be costly. However, the foods are really tempting.



Quizinn-Airasia-KLIA2-food court


 After a moment of silence, Airasia on-board foods are way more cheaper than eating at Quizinn. Although it is a small portion and really not that comfortable eating on-board with Airasia, it still relevant to buy on-board foods while flying with Airasia.





Another good thing about Airasia, the cabin crew were not really checking on your designated seats unless customer bought hot seats. Airasia cabin crews advised to sit upright when taking off and refrain from using mobile phone while take off and landing but on unoccupied seats, you are allowed to take if passenger deemed necessary.







The controversy news shocked many of us about Auntie Anne's Pretzel food name tag. It seem like religious department failed to secure a victory to change Auntie Anne's Pretzel food name tag from "dog" to "sausage".  I have many Muslim friends and most of them referred it as "sausage" rather than calling it "hot dog"



Bus to KL Sentral from KLIA2



KLIA 2 offers great and convenience facilities. There are taxi and bus Booths selling ticket to passengers.


 


One way bus trip to KL Sentral from KLIA 2 currently priced at RM12.00. It used to be RM10.00 in the old days. KL Sentral is central transportation hub at Kuala Lumpur city.


It has been a pleasant flight with Airasia though there were slight delay on schedule. I will choose Airasia in my next voyage.
