Every time sport season arrives, I always remember this particular incident.
In 2008 when I was the Head coach for Kapit division, I was looking for Vaseline Jelly to prevent chapping during the rigorous training and actual tournament..
Yup.. I am a very caring coach hehe..
From my experience, the track athletes will always suffer from chapping in their inner thighs, nipples (for boys), armpits etc etc because of the friction made from their repetitive movement. So I went to the local drugstore searching for the perfect ointment..
TraVeLLer: Ada jual Vaseline?
Amoi Kedai: Apa?
TraVeLLer: Vaseline.. Vaseline.
Amoi Kedai: Apa itu?
TraVeLLer: Itu petroluem jelly dalam bekas kecik itu.
Amoi Kedai: Petroleum jelly? Untuk apa itu?
TraVeLLer: Itu untuk sapu jangan bagi melecet macam minyak la.. takkan u tak tau.
Amoi Kedai: (cakap bahasa cina entah hapa ntah dengan toke kat kaunter belakang)
TraVeLLer: Ada ke? kalau brand lain pun ok.. Janji petroleum jelly.
Toke Kedai: (Yelling from the back) Ooo lu mau pelincir kondom ka? itu condom lubricant, kenapa tak cakap.... bagi licin punya... ada-ada.. Lu cakap petroleum jelly mana dia tau, salah-salah.. KY JELLY..
Everyone in the drugstore was looking at me and my shopping partner (another GUY coach!!)
Micheal Collin Robert, fondly known as MCR. Quit school to support his family.. only 13 year old at that time.. sigh..

Yay.. The sport season is just around the corner.. Can't wait to take out my spike shoes. Must be covered with dust right now.
The 4 x 100m event for the teachers will be the 'favourite' event for students to see their teachers strut their stuffs and show their talents (or lack of). haha!
My new mantra now...
Need to exercise.. need to exercise..
The event is on 7th to 9th Feb, so I still have lotsa time to get in shape.. (macam la pernah in shape sangat)..
Tomorrow I am going to do laps (or maybe just lap without s) around the pool. It has been a long time since my last visit there.. I think I still remember where the swimming pool is. Besides, I need to break into my new swimming goggles... with POWER!! (mind you, that is the exact word the salesgirl used to lure me into buying it)
