Week 1 of Recovery

It has been more than a week since I was discharged from hospital, thankfully the new job don't start till next week, so I got plenty of break before having to fight my way through crowded bus to Central with a plaster hanging at my chest. Life as a single hand cripple has not been as bad as I have imagined, I can do most things with one hand as I have learned. Taking a shower was probably the worst, I have to held my injured arm up for as long as 10 mins, while the right arm was doing all the yoga movement, to get to every part of the body (just imagine cleaning your right arm pit with you right hand!).

I am a bit worried with the muscles on my left arm, they now cramped quite often due to lack of movement. Not much I can do until the plaster is off, of become smaller in my next checkup. By the I am fully recovered, I will give Outrigging a try, may rebulid my arm muscle quickly.

I was completely hooked to a Japanese comic called "Death Note" (死亡筆記). The second film based on the comic has just been released, but as always, the comic is much better. In case you didn't know the story is about a note book dropped by a Reapper to Earth, any person's name written on it will die within 40secs. The guy who picked it up started to use it to punish criminals in order to create a utopia. A top detective who is only known as "L" secretly investigate the series of crime. Both characters were highly intelligent and began a dog fight of mind games to fish each other out. I am down to the last volume today, can't wait.

Hope you get well soon. Hey, nice site! I found the link on Kin's page; he's a member on the MTB underground forum. Anyways, how does this 'blogger' site work? I'm trying to start my own site [] Are you an MTB'er as well? You can send me an e-mail at

Hi, good to know you. I am not a hardcore MTB'er, just do a little bit so that I can do adventure races. which I really love. Unfortunately my accident rate is a little bit too frequent this year, I am not sure if I will be comfortable to ride a mountain bike again after the fracture.

"while the right arm was doing all the yoga movement"
hahahahaha, i couldn't stop laughing dude. now i had the picture of you rubbing yourself in yoga style. my god.
i am so into deathnote too, tammy send me all the volume. and i say it is a good comic, i ahven't finish reading it, the characters are clever but i find it too logical, it is like programming, all the if then else pattern.
remember the chinese novel by gum yung? there was this character who possess the heaviest sword with one hand and he trained his one arm with several different techniques, maybe you should give it a go.
