KDF Millennium Ride 2017

78 EPIC Cylist riders will endure 1,000km over 4 days to raise funds for the KDF Millennium Ride 2017. They will cycle from Malaysia to Singapore for this good cause on 3 – 6 March 2017.

KDF

The yearly affair is organised by EPIC Cyclist, a local cycling group, and recognised to be one of the most mentally and physically challenging rides in the region. Participants are expected to withstand at least 9 hours of non-stop cycling to cover 250km each day through various terrains and battle unpredictable weather conditions.

The toughest challenge this year is covering 470km in the first two days and accumulating a total incline gain that is above the height of Mount Everest. EPIC Cyclist hopes to raise at least $300,000 this year. All proceeds from the donations will be channelled to needy kidney patients under the care of Kidney Dialysis Foundation.

Was The Walking Dead Season 6 cliffhanger justified?

*Rants and spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned*

Wanted to blog about this few weeks ago when I saw the spoiler on who will be killed in Season 7 premiere. But I decided to wait till I see the full episode before commenting. If you remember, I was really pissed after watching Season 6 finale.

And I wasn’t the only one. A lot of fans were angry with the cliffhanger and there was a massive backlash. But showrunner Scott Gimple asked the fans to give them the benefit of the doubt as it as all part of a plan. He said he hope people will see the Season 7 premiere and feel that it justifies the way they told the story.

But after watching Season 7 premiere, I still felt that the cliffhanger in Season 6 finale was unnecessary. It was just a lazy way of creating suspense so that the fans will look forward to the next season.

Personally, I think the story would have been better if they ended Season 6 with Abraham behind hit by lucille. This will give Negan’s introduction a huge impact and at the same time give fans the impression that the rest of the gang are safe from lucille. And they could deliver another shock during Season 7 premiere by killing Glenn.

Very disappointed with the cliffhanger in Season 6 finale. After watching Season 7 premiere, I still don’t think it justify the cliffhanger. They could have told a better story without that stupid cliffhanger.
