  5. My mum starts nagging about my apparent lost of weight. “You are too skinny, son!!!”;
  6. 100km on the bike feels like a short ride;
  7. The chinese shop assistant starts talking to me in malay (b'cos of the tan), when I make my refill stop some where near Mantin;
  8. Lunch time on weekends is often at 4.00 p.m. (after a long ride);

  11. My weight dips below 60kg (despite eating more than usual);
