Old School Jujutsu

Something light, humourous and non Bikram related.

Enjoy!

Ad-I that Das?

Adidas showcased its Fall / Winter 2008 collection yesterday and I shamelessly invited myself to the event.

 

Well, not really. I got through thanks to Joyce and posing in my best Yoga pose holding the Adidas logo.

Yes, that’s me in the office. Please don’t laugh. Thanks to Hazel for taking a piccie of me! I was actually gritting my teeth telling her to hurry it up before I fell flat on my nose, like this :

I didn’t know I had back and shoulder muscles 😛 Too bad my ab muscles aren’t that obvious, it’s all hidden under a layer of fat.

 

The event was supposed to start at 7.00pm and buka puasa [breaking of fast for Muslims] at 7.30pm. THEN, we all had to exercise 😦 

 

I don’t mind the dancing [I, afterall, danced like a crab with rictus on a hot bed of coal] and I certainly don’t mind the yoga [although it’s done in an air-conditioned room, not good for the muscles!] but I DO MIND exercising after supposedly eating dinner! To avoid puking food all over celeb-babes and getting kicked out of the event, I munched healthily on fruits and veggies. 😦

 

But on to the pictures! [Since it’s been a long time since this blog is filled with them]. Pictures courtesy of Cathy, one of the winners of the contest sponsored by Adidas 🙂

Overall I felt the event was a success, but I didn’t like how they touted it as a “women’s only event” and suddenly stood 2 male hosts there [sure sure eye candy and what not, but hell, my sports bra doesn’t have any padding so all you can see sometimes are nipples!]. 

I went in specifically for the Yoga class conducted by Ninie Ahmad, a celebrity yoga instructor [I like the way she writes about how Yoga is a spiritual journey]. But oh woe, suddenly a horde of random aunties came in as well! And they said the event was strictly invite only! What really irked me was that we all had to be in Adidas gear [since it’s after all, an ADIDAS event], but these aunties weren’t! Sheesh.

 

So much for equality and fairness and what not 😦

Thanks to Cathy for the piccies! xoxo

p/s : I still have yet to tell you about Bikram Yoga, the life-changing Yoga I’ve started 7 months ago.
