On Valentine’s Day, my doorbell rang and the Citylink delivery man showed up at my doorstep with a huge parcel.

“What? No way!,” I thought to myself. Theboyfriend couldn’t possibly have any more surprises up his sleeve after a super surprise the night before, could he? After all, he was still fast asleep at noon when the parcel came.

 

 Turned out, it was a bicycle sponsored by the good folks of Bojio & Garion Bikes!

 

I excitedly dragged the huge box in (yes it was quite heavy!) before estimating its weight by trying to do bicep curls with it LOL. Cool

My first impression of it – boxed – was that it was compact enough to fit my car boot and most likely, slightly under 15KG.

 

 

 

Excitedly woke moo up and together, we ripped the box apart to unwrap, unfold and unveil our new bike! Big Smile

 

Kinda like this picture, as I can somewhat see the definition of my delts & triceps hehe.

Motivation to work harder at it! Laughing

 

I asked the sis who was watching us unwrap it, if she could cycle, and she answered smugly, “Duh of course I can, everyone can cycle lah.” 

I hung my head in embarrassment and looked at her pitifully, followed by a, “WHAT? YOU MEAN YOU CAN’T??” Yell

Yes, I absolutely cannot. For the very first time I cycled back in Ipoh, I was chased by a dog and fell off the bike resulting in deep, multiple scratches. CryThe second time I cycled was in Cambodia, and I got hit by a truck whilst on my way to Angkor Wat and ruined my holiday.

And that was the last time I ever I cycled a bicycle.Canny

Call it paranoia, but I affirm that I can no longer cycle a bicycle confidently anymore.

 

Almost toppled the bike over.

Candid shot that Moo took of me when I was freaking out.

 

I can, I will, I must. Baby steps – easy does it!

Picking up speed, balance and confidence all over again.

 

So thanks to Bojio and Garion Bikes, this is my third time attempting to cycle a bicycle again.

Thank you for giving me the incentive to face my fears! Smile

 

Also, major credits to the skilful boyfie of mine (yes, he’s doing the wheelie!),

who patiently taught me how to cycle again and rebuilt my confidence.

 

Hey hey hey! Look at me go! Slowly but surely 😀

We had so much fun that Valentines outdoor date,

so much so that we’ve decided to make cycling a weekend affair! Kiss
