Self portrait photography

I can't ride because the road was wet from last night rain.
Nothing to do, so I took a camera and waited for half and hour for common backyard to appear, nothing.
This self portrait was the other alternative.

Cycling to Padang Golf Raub

I don't play golf, but this is the place that I usually go for cycling or birding.
Situated 5km from my house, a perfect place to ride for short 30 minutes workout every morning or birding for one hour on weekend.

This grassland is at the far end of the golf course, where you can find Paddyfield Pipit, White-headed Munia, Lesser Coucal, Hill Myna, etc.

I have a pair of Specialized MTB shoes use with CrankBrother Candy C pedal for my Kona Cinder Cone mountain bike.
I don't want to buy another specific road bike shoes, so  bought this CrankBrothers Eggbeater Pedal.

This two images below are not mine, got it from the net
I think you know why the above pedal got its name.
