Deutsches Gasthaus - A Walloping Good Time

[Firstly, forgive the resolution and pathetic attempt at snapping food pics with a camera phone]

[Secondly, this is a non-halal post, so please be prepared]

Fren of mine recommended this joint to get real good porky food, great for some protein loading and satisfy your craving if you're in the mood for some meaty dishes and beer... note that we did not order any beer cos we both don't drink.. However, they do have an extensive array of imported beer for those who are into an alcohol-inducing session with buddies...

Deutsches Gasthaus in Damansara Perdana, few lots away from The Bike Boutique and Citibank

Bar counter with extensive choices of beer and liquor

Minimalist decor... but ambience is pretty cool..

J waiting for her food....

Yours truly trying to get my mind off of the hunger....

Their specialty - Pork knuckle with potatoes, sauerkraut, salad greens, pork sauce and mustard

We also had a Bavarian Meat Loaf with sunny side-up egg, salad and mustard sauce

What's left after 20 mins of non-stop ravenous walloping.... =D

I did a triathlon-training yesterday...

Swam in the pool for 30 mins, then mounted my bike on the trainer and churned out 45 mins, then laced up my shoes and ran 60 mins...

I guess from the above workout, you can see which type of 'event' I like best... I guess I enjoy running the most; if I only had time to either swim, bike or run, i'd be lacing up my running shoes everytime.

I'm not much of a swimmer... never have been... prolly never would be. Water isn't my greatest ally, and I actually dreaded washing my hair when I was small, always fearing that water would get into my eyes and ears and nose... guess fears when you're a lil boy always come back to haunt you...

Biking too isn't my forte... true, the scenery does go by faster compared to running; true, you get the wind in your face and freedom kinda feeling when you're rolling at 40km/h; true, you cover more ground and you explore more places when you bike.... but still, it doesn't really appeal to me much the same way running does...

Hitting the trainer takes a lot of mental effort...

Running... I can't really tell you what running does for me.. or why I like it or prefer it over swimming and biking... just that, I enjoy it.

Neways, prolly if I spend more time biking or swimming, I might learn to like it more, but as it is, with a full time job, a part time job, a baby on the way, how much more time would I have to split between these 3 'events'??

Looks like that pair of goggles and that bike helmet will be sitting on that shelf just a little longer.
