Change – mind, body, may be even soul

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

After doing sports since many years ago I felt bored. All these isolated heavy weight exercises, interrupted by racket sports and martial arts. There was no real training which effects the whole body. No longer isolated weights. What will be the aim ? Reduce my own weight, feel better, have a fitter mind. If you search the net for Calisthenics or Body Weight Exercises you will get a lot of hits. I decided to follow Mark Lauren BodayWeightExercises by Mark Lauren and bought his book on Amazon. Furthermore, to make it a little bit easier I go with the Y(ou)A(re)Y(our)O(wn)G(ym) app, where I have chosen the 10 weeks training on a master level to start. Afterwards I should be able to adapt exercises, create my own workout by the week, find new challenges. Well, I´ll keep you informed for sure.

Kuala Lumpur – and back to Germany

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

Flew to KL from HK, never had the experience before in an A 380. And it was great. Amazing to see this huge bird from the inside, no noise, unable to feel the smooth airborne, really great. Flight took around 3 hrs. Hotel in KL was located directly in KLCC. pretty nice rooms, good breakfast buffet, pool. Nothing else needed. Impiana Hotel Sunday I watched the French Open final, Rafa wons and he becomes immortal for the tennis sport after winning 8 times. Had some Tiger beers and a 50 inch TV on a half open terrace bar at 15th floor with the illuminated Petronas Towers behind me. Great. Monday work with our stuff to train and afterwards went outside KL to meet a swiss guy, he also runs a business to provide professional services for open source software. And he plays tennis as well so we had a 2,5 hrs match which he wons. Remember, 32° C outside, humidity very high, not my own racket and hard court instead of sand. I did my best 🙂 Afterwards we had a nice chat before I went back to my hotel. Tuesday internal stuff as well and at night dinner with my colleagues. Fantastic food, Tiger beer and business talk as well. Let´s see what future brings.
Flying back to HK early morning on Thursday. I choose the Regal Airport Hotel coz my flight back was scheduled for Friday morning 7:30 am. Doesn´t make sense to stay at Kowloon or HongKong area. Took the airport express train to meet my colleague once again. He brought a new candidate for our HK brunch in and we talked with that guy. Not that bad at all. At this time my stomach starts a revolution. Not sure where it comes from but I felt so bad and my belly was like a huge bubble. So strange. it was a horrible night and when I got up at 5 am I felt tired and knackered. And so many hours in front to spent in a plan…….
I landed in Munich Friday night and my beloved wife picked me up. So great to see her with a rose in her hands waiting for me at the arrival hall. I surprised her with some gifts and presents and well, even the plan was a little bit different I went to bad coz of my stomach. I hope it becomes better soon, seems like a kind of virus infect I brought back home.
After all it was nice to back out for business again after no travelling for last 6 month. And glad to be home, if I could do that every half a year it´s fine.

Hong Kong – June 2013

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

One week in Hong Kong , just for business purpose. Flight was ok, hotel as well. Shit load of work to do, cover the training and work afterwards (coz of being 7 hrs ahead..) on german stuff. And serve customers as well in Hong Kong. Great. But it´s done. Food was great as always in Asia, HK is a melting pot where you can get every kind of asian food. Had a nice thai style dinner (som tam thai and pad thai gai, what else) and Beer Chang as well. Had the best chinese beef noodle soup ever, in a small food stall for less than 40 HK$. At the end, the week was good. Headed to KL on Saturday, first time I flu on an A380. Nice experience. Made a small movie about. Weather in KL is cloudy and some rain during the night. Should be more relaxed than HK, serve internal training and some other internal stuff for just 3 days.
It has been a long time ago since my last travel outside Germany for business and so I noticed once again , I miss my home and my beloved wife. Well, I really like doing my job, but since I just work from home it´s not that often that I´ll be on business travel. On the other hand, I like Asia and so it´s fine now , but I´m looking forward to go back home. Friday will be the day. Stay tuned.

as usual ….

….I´m a lazy guy 🙂 Beg your pardon for such a long time without a post. Right now on my way to Asia, even it´s business purpose I´m looking forward being in Hong Kong and KL again. Last weeks were stressful and took a bunch of energy but it will be better, I guess (and X my fingers for that). Meanwhile I´m sitting in Bangkok, airport @ RoyalSilk , had a shower after a relaxed flight and wait for my connecting flight to Hong Kong. 2 hrs layover is fine if you can spend it smoothly. Will keep you updated.. really .. really really 🙂
