I am afraid the rumour is true.

It was almost unbelievable when I first received this at my doorstep a few weeks ago, along with a box of lip-smacking macaroons from Nathalie Gourmet Studio.

Never thought that I would ever meet someone as sweet again in my life since primary and high schools. Love letters, postcards, sweets and desserts. . .it seems rare nowadays with the undeniable presence of digital media and smart technologies for mobile phones.

My heart did indeed…skipped a beat after reading it, the card.

While jotting down 4th of July in my memory right away.


Time flies and days passed by…

I haven’t heard anything at all.

This must be some sort of stupid prank, I finally gave it a disappointing thought.

. . .until 3rd of July.

The doorbell rang, and standing right in front of me was the despatch guy once again. Handed me a black paper bag and off he went with a friendly smile.

I nearly assumed it was a marriage proposal after reading the second card that came with a nice new greyish top that fits me perfectly.

What romantic little game, and I swear I couldn’t sleep the whole night through. Anxiously anticipating for tomorrow’s date.

Yup, the lack of sleep look next day.

Not cool.

Put on a minimal makeup, that new T-shirt and off I drove to KLCC Park. Obediently following what was written on the card.

Pretty gloomy that noon, I remember.

But the world famous Twin Towers are still looking amazing as always, never fail to put a smile on my face.

Those purple and blue balloons…to my surprise! Near the entrance of KLCC Park.

…and then a second one!

It was such a blissful feeling I have to admit, totally feeling like the luckiest girl on earth going through the most romantic guessing game ever.

The third bunch of purple blue balloons led me to another gorgeous gift.

Spending most of the time with me that day was my dear Magdeline. Couldn’t be more fun without her really. 🙂 And of course, she had her gift too!

I opened the gift box and found a pair of incredibly eye-catching running shoes, in the prettiest purple and tiny little lines of neon (the new black). Gently put it on on my right foot, and there! Fits beautifully. Just like the one I was wearing on my left.

Without a second thought, I realized right away – WE HAVE FINALLY MET!

The Nike LunarGlide+5.

A sole-mate indeed.

Specially sponsored by Nike when it wasn’t even in the market yet, I am truly grateful.

Off we go having a nice quick jog at the park. Running has not been more comfortable and exciting than this, with the all new LunarGlide+5 on!

So light and cushy I did not feel like a burden running long ways at all. However, you might want to consider getting a size larger than your usual shoe size if you are keen on getting yourself your own pair of LunarGlide+5 as the puffy cushion in it makes it a little bit tighter than your usual shoes at home.

Had a sweaty half and hour of light run and we girls were back to a specially reserved restaurant for some light refreshment.

Water, tea and bites were served.

Joining us that afternoon were also a few members of the media, a local actor/celebrity Roax Tan, as well as Robin Kok, the Marketing Manager for Nike Malaysia.

Nike Sports Guru, Wan then explained to us that there are also reflective elements on the shoes to help runners remain visible in low-light conditions.

Same goes to our dri-fit running T-shirts that Nike specially chose for us girls as well.

Neon strings are known as the Flywire Technology for a glove-like fit for both your feet. Do find more interesting details below as your scroll down the blogpost.

A happy girl who finally found her sole-mate 🙂


Looking for the perfect pair of running shoes?

Get to know the LunarGlide! Who knows, you might probably get to meet your sole-mate too just like I did!

The all new Nike LunarGlide+5 comes in two gorgeous colours!

Eccentric blue for men, and eccentric purple for women.

For runners with a mildly to moderately overpronated gait, the Nike LunarGlide+5 delivers the stability and responsive ride of Dynamic Support, a two-part midsole system where opposing wedges of foam (Lunarlon and firmer carrier foam) move the runner from soft to stable as the heel lands and the foot flexes down.

The shoe provides exceptional cushioning and support through the Lunarlon and Nike Flywire technologies. The Lunarlon system features a soft, light yet resilient foam core within a supportive foam carrier for plush cushioning, springy response and needed support.

Nike Flywire delivers an adaptive, glove-like feel and the Fitsole sockliner molds to the shape of the foot for a custom fit.

Single-layer, engineered mesh throughout the upper provides ventilation and support where you need it most. Mesh inner sleeve wraps the foot for a plush, comfortable fit. Notches at the tongue provide easy on and off.

Flywire Technology wraps the midfoot and arch for a dynamic, glove-like fit. It runs through the lace loops to help reduce pressure on the top ridge of the foot.

Floating heel support clip moves with your foot to moderate excessive rearfoot motion while plush foam in the collar enhances heel lockdown.

Reflective elements in between help runners remain visible in low-light conditions.

Fitsole sockliner molds to the shape of your foot for a custom fit and improved underfoot support. Lunarlon cushioning system features a soft yet resilient foam core encased within a supportive foam carrier for lightweight, ultra-push cushioning, springy response and support.

Dynamic Support platform (in white) provides stability without the added weight or stiffness of a traditional medial post.

Environmentally preferred rubber Waffle outsole (black front) provides multisurface traction and durability while BRS 1000 carbon rubber in the heel for a maximum abrasion resistance in this high-wear area. On the other hand, deep flex grooves engineered for natural motion enhance flexibility for a smooth, efficient stride.
