But then there's the Green Apple flavoured PowerBar Gels. These taste great, but they are a little lacking on the caffeine side..just 25mg. But still yummy. Just don't leave an open pack in your pocket while running (forget about your best intentions not to be a litter-bug), green slime + sweat makes for a rather sticky pocket. Yuck.
On my desk now seats a packet of Vanilla flavoured PowerBar Gel. I bought this in a pinch but having restocked on other flavours I haven't got the opportunity to "savour" this during a race. I bet it tastes horrible..vanilla only deserves to be a flavour of ice-cream and Marigold HL milk.
Last but not least, my all time favourite, Tangerine flavoured PowerBar Gels. I nearly cleared out a local Guardian pharmacy's supply of this stuff because it's so hard to find sometimes. Even the GNC at Sungai Wang doesn't stock 'em. I count one, two, three packets lying around my table, there's probably more in my bag.
On a side note, I was browsing Kenny Sia's website (I like his blog, at least he doesn't look emo all the time like some Malaysian popular bloggers do) when I saw this picture* of him:
I've one Adidas shirt that looks exactly like that and I've been wearing it for all of my recent runs and for badminton as well...but I don't look like a bak chang (Chinese rice dumpling wrapped TIGHTLY in bamboo leaves) when I put on that shirt. Hehe. He reminds me of Lou Ferrigno.
