Oz Oz Oz Oz OZ DAY

OZ day, behave yourself!

In Australia people celebrate their national day of 26th of January, known as OZ day, having party with barbie (Australian term of BBQ), beer, fireworks, paddle pool and of course bike (in our case).
It was like that. Thanks Ash for inviting me for such a sensational party.

I want to write something about the party but I can't clearly remember what was exactly happening there since I couldn't help myself to have a sleep of 2 hours during the party as I had a bottle of wine.

But I took some photos that carry me back the time.

ohhhHey Prof!oops, flat tire
Look, the Aussie flag is flying in the sky!
Title: Mohigan + FireworksThe Dark Side of The Moon, Pink Floyd

That's it. Oh by the way, I'm into a band called Pink Floyd at the moment. It's a band from 1970's but the sound is still really new, it actually doesn't sound out of date at all. I felt really shame that I didn't know this one of the greatest band of the planet ever when I heard the music for the first time. If you still don't know this band I extremely highly recommend you to try. I don't attach the link to the music video because I want you to listen the whole album from the first track to the last track continuously.


Broken Ribs and a Broken Rim

3. 2. 1. Polo!!!!

Gosh, this is my second writing today. So intense!!

I went to play bike polo today as usual and finally it happened to me and Brad in the middle of an exciting game.

The chest of Brad hit my handle bar and my rim hit his frame.

These were the consequences.

1. Suspiciously, Brad has got his ribs broken.

2. My bike's front rim bend (dead).

ohhh.....He's got a pitiful bruise on his chest......My front rim is dead, luckily the hub is still fine.

I hope Brad will survive from the pain soon and I pray my rim's soul may rest in peace.

Lazy Weekend

This weekend was too lazy one.

Me and Joel went cycling to Armadale as I found a dam on my street directory of Perth.
It was a ride of 30km. It was fiarly short ride but half of ride was just steep up hill.
But its was nice ride as well. Green forests, some picnic area and the dam was massive.
It would be an ideal 1 day cycling destination.

Today, I was suppose to finish all my assignment, but I've been too lazy. Even I woke up at 9.00 and started doing assignment, it hardly has got any progress.

Gosh, I feel like I have to be more productive.

Oh shit, its nearly time to Sunday Polo!

Better finish work and start packing now! Take it easy, mate!


Massive Bike

Found in front of the city library today. 4 panias (2 back and 2 front) and 7 water bottles (applox 11 little). Wearing mud guards and small gearing thick block tires for any killer hills and any harsh weather and road conditions.

This is the real outback touring bike, man!
