Have you seen my post on 'My Dream in the Year of Tiger'? If not, click here. By writing the post, I am entitled to participate the Tiger Run organised by Nuffnang and Tiger Beer. The grand prize winner of the Tiger Run will walk home with RM 8888 worth of dreams and additional RM 1888 cash prize! So, 7 of us reached Jaya One about 4 pm and wandered around before the registration opened at around 4.15 pm. During registration, we were required to sign a letter of declaration of our health status and provide information of our next of kin. Wow.. so serious? Initially, we thought it was just a station game but looking to the presence of St. John Ambulance team and also cones surrounding the perimeter of Jaya one, it should be a real marathon! Upon registration, we were provided with an empty goodies bag. Our name written on sticky note was pasted on the goodies bag instead of on our clothes. After registration, we were then required to wait until the marathon was to be officially kicked off. While waiting, we managed to spot a leopard dressed lady who happened to be Alison. She came here far away from Terengganu to attend this event. It has been long time we didn't managed to meet each other after the UCSI 7th Public Health Campaign held at Sunway Pyramid. Click here to check the post. How are we supposed to run a marathon with the goodies bag? It is indeed a new experience for all of us. Accordingly, this guy is Kevin Chong from the Ntv7 Breakfast Crew. He looks familiar to me but I cant recall who he is until Raj enlighten me on our UCSIPSS Oath Taking cum Pharmacy Night 2009. He was the one who came with my UCSI TV crews and interviewed my VIP, Datuk Nancy Ho, the President of Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society (MPS). Check the gala night here. Forgot to mention, he was the emcee for the event. He was using a hailer but we can't hear any words uttered by him. Everyone was puzzled and confused how the marathon run. He should have raise up the hailer and speak. Everyone was listening attentively but too bad the message wasn't really clear. What we heard was to run round and round and round until you reach Bar Madrid, the final destination. So, how many round we need to run?? Alright, let me explain to all of you. Our starting point was at outside of Headquartrs Bistro. From there, we need to run along the perimeter of Jaya One indicated in red line for TWO rounds. After that, we shall make our first stop at Headquartrs Bistro. At Headquartrs Bistro, we were required to tweet anything regarding the Tiger Run using the provided 6 laptops with 1 of them was not functioning. After running for 2 rounds along the perimeter of Jaya One, I reached this pit stop and quickly grabbed a glass of cold water to quench my thirst. It was a long queue and I wondered what was going wrong. Participants who do not have a Twitter account were required to register a new account and tweet #tigerrun. Participants can also tweet from their mobile phone but I was too stupid to use the technology. Do add me into your tweeter account, don't let me be alone. Click here. Due to the 'super duper' fast internet connection and lack of laptop to be used, the queue was getting longer and longer till I saw Nic, Charlene and Vun were tailing back. After the task was completed, each of the participant was given a sticker pasted on their goodies bag. From the Headquartrs Bistro, we need to run using the green path to our next station which was Royal Oak. At here, all we need to do was very simple, grab a bottle of Tiger beer and placed it into your goodies bag. Simple huh? After that, we need to run back passing Headquartrs Bistro using the green path and continue another round and head towards Frontera. At here, we were required to eat the super spicy habanero chicken wing. There were a lot of baskets of the chicken wing and if the participants were lucky enough and pick correct basket, it will be a non spicy habanero chicken wing. For mine, it was super duper spicy!! One should eat the chicken wing completely despite the hot burning flaming sensation and showed the bone to the staff before they got their stage completion sticker. What next? Run using the green path for one more cycle! Our next station was Cafe Chulo Spanish Restaurant and Tapas Bar. We need to climb the stairs to go up to the bar. At here, we were required to log in into FB account and become a fan of Tiger Beer Facebook Fan Page. If not mistaken, there were only 4 laptops available. In addition, the connection was super duper slow again. This explained the longer and longer queue as time passed. Again, for those who can online using their mobile phone, they can sit on the sofa in relax mood and performed the task. What next? I'm sure you know well about the mechanism of the marathon right? Yea.. run one more cycle using the green path! This would be the last one where we will head to the Bar Madrid. At Bar Madrid, the staff will check your goodies bag to ensure participants have collected enough stickers and items during the marathon. There were 2 stations where items were given to the participants during the run. After checking, you will then required to pose like a Tiger in front of the backdrop where a staff will take your posing picture. L- This was the goodies bag and the each stage completion stickers. R- These were the items collected during the run. After completion of the marathon, we then 'chilled up' at the Bar Madrid drinking countless of cold waters and chatting. I then asked Wan Nah for a spicy habanero chicken wing re-challenge. We headed back to Frontera and tried the chicken wings again. We were once again being cheated to eat a super duper spicy chicken wing by one of the male staff. After that, we only managed to identify those non spicy chicken wings.
Alright, here was the said super duper spicy habanero chicken wing!Coming up next was a tiger show performance...ooops it should be a lion dance! Not just one but a pair of lion. Check out the tail of the lion!
And this was another lion. See the below video clip recorded by me.

His secret was to run 20 km per day. OMG!! Number 1. We were number one. Alright, to be specify, he was number one in the run while I'm the number one eater of the night. Haha. Not just eating, it was added with a drinking session with none other than our sponsor, Tiger Beer!
Cheers!~During half way dinner'ing, the emcee called out everyone for a prize giving ceremony. The orange T-shirt guy was the one who cheated me & Charlene to eat the super duper spicy chicken wings at Frontera. For all the winner below, they won themselves 6 packs of Tiger Beer and RM 88 angpow!! 1st- Most creative blog post submitted- It was the egg yolk again who won it.

Charlene & Chie ChekSolo picture with Huai Bin from sixthseal.com. I would like to comment something about him. He is really a drinker. At the starting point of the marathon, he already seen holding a bottle of beer and finished drinking not even when the run started. Then, after I finished my run, I saw him with another bottle at Bar Madrid. During the prize giving ceremony, he hold another one. During the picture taking session, he hold another one. I really want to find out how many bottle he had drank. Geng!~ Group photo with Huai Bin, one of the Malaysian top blogger and was one of the featured blogger in Project Alpha Season 1.
Showing the love sign, yea we love TIGER and Nuffnang too!~
After the photo taking session, it was the continuation of our drinking session.
