Nando's Bangsar Village New Look

It's been a while since we've been to Bangsar Village, ever since we adopted the kittens and "half-adopted" their mommy.

We usually visited the mall at least once a week but ever since the kittens were with us, we were always rushing back to check on them.

So, imagine our delighted surprise that the Nando's outlet that was renovated earlier is finally opened and sporting a new look!
And they're having the buka puasa promo for Ramadan, with a tagline of "Family means no one eats alone" and its RM99 for 4 pax.
Anyhoo, we didn't order this yesterday and opted for the meal platter. Kenyang la, for 3 pax. 
And also Per-peri soup with garlic bread.
The interior is much brighter now compared to pre-renovation and now, diners can refill their own drinks at the drinks fountain. Cool!

Despite that, the staff helpfully refilled our drinks whenever they saw it empty. Talk about rajin!

Service was fast. Servers were attentive but come payment time, it got slow.

I went to the cashier counter, as I usually do, indicating my table.

The cashier on duty asked what were the food I ordered. Huh?

Later, she asked me to wait at my table for them to bring me my receipt. Double huh.

Never mind lor... Got more time to get extra refill and drink. LOL

But I still kinda a bit regret we didn't go have dinner at Nirwana and enjoy a banana leaf rice meal before Ramadan kicks in. Hahaha

RAUR At Taman Warisan Pertanian Putrajaya

RAUR stands for Rimba Alam Ultra and its first edition in 2017 was held at Taman Rimba Alam in Presint 15, Putrajaya.
For 2018, RAUR was back on Saturday, 12th May 2018 at a new place and with a slightly new format. Taman Warisan Pertanian at Presint 16, Putrajaya was chosen to be the race venue this year.

RAUR is a 12-hour ultra relay race for a team of 4 runners and this year only teams of 4 categories were opened - all male, mixed (both open & alumni categories).

The format for RAUR 2018 was, each runner took turn to run a 1.2km fast loop and winners were chosen for these categories:
1) fastest team to reach a total of 52.8km distance (a total of 44 laps)
2) longest distance covered by a team in 12 hours.

Close to 70 teams (and close to 300 runners) made their way to compete and race in RAUR 2018.
While Hubby and I wasn't part of the crew or volunteer for the race this year, we still kinda kepohed both at RAUR's REPC held a week earlier and then dropped by at RAUR on event day.

From what I learnt, the numbers of teams were kept low in accordance to the park's management wishes and also in view of the race venue ability to cope with visitors itself.
The 1.2km loop that the runners had to do saw them running passing by several sections of "plantations" from rambutan back to the rubber trees and through sections that visitors to the park would not have passed by, by themselves.

The race was flagged-off at 7.00am and supposed to finish at 7.00pm for those aiming to complete the full 12-hours and aim for the longest distance category win. However, just like last year, it rained heavily at around 4.00pm and with thunder and lightning to boot.

And just like in 2017, the race director made the decision to stop the race early for safety reason.

I wonder if the same thing will happen in 2019. Hehe
