Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2016 (SCKLM

Good news for runners as I am sure you like to know about the SCKLM. Race owner and organiser of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2016 (SCKLM), Dirigo Events announced today that runner’s registration will begin from Tuesday, 15th March 2016. This year marks SCKLM’s eighth installation and will take place on Sunday, 7th August at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur.

A new staggered registration system will be introduced to ensure a better registration experience for runners as it simplifies the online registration process and lessens the chances of web-traffic congestion.

In addition, participants of SCKLM 2015 will be given priority to register for the 2016 event due to last year’s race cancellation caused by the haze. Further details of the staggered registrations can be found on or the Standard Chartered KL Marathon Facebook page.

Apart from the staggered registration system, the official cut-off time of the full marathon has been extended to 7 hours to reduce route congestion. A checkpoint system, commonly practised in international marathons, will also be implemented this year. Runners will need to reach each checkpoint within a designated time or will be shuttled back to Dataran Merdeka.

Other initiatives to look forward to this year include the Friendship Run and Pasta Party, which will be held on the eve of the race. Opened only to Full Marathon participants, the event aims to foster camaraderie amongst runners from around the world.

This year’s participating beneficiaries for Run For A Reason are Standard Chartered Foundation (SCF), Hospis Malaysia, Yayasan Sejahtera and IJN Foundation.

The 2016 Standard Chartered KL Marathon is once again made possible by title sponsor Standard Chartered Bank, and along with event owner and organiser, Dirigo Events Sdn. Bhd. and co-organiser Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur.

Cheque fined RM100!!!

It's Wednesday and son has got school activity and he's only finished scout activity at 3.30pm. I wrote a cheque for son to give person in charge for paying the scout uniform which total up almost RM200. Sad to say that wifey forgot about transfer money to the current account. There goes RM100 fined!

We often payment to school by cash but this time is in cheque so I also forgot about inform her about need to bank in money for the cheque. The uniform shop in IOI Mall Puchong called up my wife to inform that cheque ditendang by bank. Lucky she called to inform else my wife wouldn't recall of this matter that no money in current account.

Lesson learn that every time need to write a cheque, need to transfer money to current account. Talking of money, yesterday son told me there is need to pay RM150 for the computer class in school. Payment is RM50 each month for the computer class, there is no option that saying you can choose to pay or not. So it is compulsory to pay for that.
