Two passionate runners- Lindy Yap and May Yong
We had our dinner at the Chinese Vegetarian restaurant at Vegie Mum in Doncaster.
Today, Ashley Liew and I were invited by Lindy Yap, one of the MR25 Club member, who is now residing in Australia. She told us that she would like to give us a treat at a Chinese Vegetarian, somewhere 45mins away from my sister’s place at Narre Warren. My sister was also invited. It was at Doncaster. The restaurant’s name was Vegie Mum.
Lindy who has a personal best time of 3hr 49min, will be also running in the Gold Coast Marathon 2011. However, she revealed that she will be doing this for the fun of it. The Chinese Vegetarian food was very delicious and we thank her for the treat.
After the treat, we decided to meet May Yong who was staying at Grenfell Avenue. At present May Yong is studying at Glen Waverly College. She told me that she is preparing for the cross-country championships. Hopefully, I hope to see her run in the State Cross-Country Championships 2011. I found out that my nephew Aravind has been selected.
Later on, we went to MacDonald’s, since we could not find any place to go for a coffee drink. May Yong chatted with us for about 30 to 40 min and finally left the place to go to my sister’s place. Lindy Yap was very kind enough to bring us back to my sister’s house, considering the long ride back to the latter’s place.
It was very nice meeting the two runners – Lindy Yap and May Yong. These are very passionate runners from Singapore and I was very happy to meet them. It was a fruitful day.
