What made me think I could complete an Ironman? I had no claim to believe I had the discipline and the motivation to accomplish anything so audacious. A couple of factors came into my mind. The thought of cycling terrified me, acknowledging I was too clumsy to ride and would probably hit a car. A big drinking session was mainly the only thing I could get behind. I had no right to think I could finish an Ironman, scared by the distances and the commitment.

An Ironman consists of 140.6 miles. 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride, 26.2-mile run. …

The methodology of “Object Orientated programming” OOP is instead of functions and procedures, the Objects are organized into Classes, classes are part of most programming languages. The components that implement the code. Java, C & C++, and PHP are OOP languages. Think about it; everything can break into an Object. The object can be broken down into components (classes & functions). In java, it can be broken into classes and instances. With the use of Objects, people can create and manipulate the state and behaviour. For example, the source code in describing a bicycle may include a class that defines…


Winter’s dark mornings in the UK are a depressing place, raining bleak and dark. I catch the worst when I go for my morning run, I leave my apartment in a painful dark morning — while I’m freezing, weak and debating with myself why I just left my warm bed. However, there is one beautiful part of the morning that makes everything worth it.

The stillness of the atmosphere, how beautifully quiet it is. It’s awfully, peaceful and relaxing. …


Everyone on the plant has a different story; what is your story?

You can be a mentor in some else’s life, you don’t have to have a higher education, just some life experience. You can try and make someone a bit better every single day.

A mentor of life is someone who tries there best to help the people around them, wanting them to succeed and do well; whether it’s now or in the future.

Since birth, we’ve been students of life, trying to understand what life is? …. How to live, what is the meaning of everything?

Communication is beautiful in my eyes.

  1. “Thinking is difficult, that’s why most people judge.” — Carl Jung
  2. “Actions seems to follow feeling, but really actions and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not. Thus the sovereign voluntary path to cheerfulness, if our cheerfulness be lost, is to sit up cheerfully and to act and speak as if cheerfulness were already there.” — William James
  3. “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.” …

Catering is a crazy trade; it pushes you physically, mentally and emotionally; it breaks the best chefs while I’ve worked in jobs. It is ranging from city centre hotels and cruise ships to excellent country restaurants. I’ve seen everything, at one spot, the sales team promise sun to a client on their wedding day; I did not work there for that long.

The original post I had was an apprentice in one of the busiest hotels in my town.

I hadn’t created my voice to speak with yet, clinching to any friendly person I could find. Out of 300 hundred…

Steve Jobs took his company public and became a millionaire. Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook by the age of 25. I haven’t won an Oscar, became a celebrity chef, wrote a bestseller book, got my ‘dream job’, but I have done something better.

I have been taking part in society for 25 years, living by the emotions and feelings I feel every day. I am my own character.

Now I’ve have acquired some life experience . I’ve made a list I will regularly transform as my life goes on. This list will grow every year. …


Imagine its 8 a.m., and you’ve already been cycling for an hour. Your vision is declining, the mist has stolen the view of your surroundings you’ve climbed over 1500 ft. What is going on in your head? I can accomplish my goal or will I turn back and head home for a nice warm bath. You arrive at the peak, and the wind hits you. Dishearting, soul-destroying and physical hell but least you have a view.

Today was a big learning curb for a cycling newbie like myself. Nevertheless, I was crushed, not solely by mother nature or my body…

Heyy, it’ll be fun I hope.

I have set myself a challenge that I am going to write 45 minutes a day, whatever I type I will post on medium. It could be about anything. Me just rambling.

It’s not like I can go socialise. I’ve got time like that in this quarantine.

Why are you doing this?

To get better at writing. I’m forcing myself to write, about anything, fiction — non-fiction — poetry — advice — what I’ve learned — Food. It could even be a recipe that I’ve made.
Just plain curiosity.
It will teach me discipline.
45 minutes…
