Being Apple Daily, it's probably because they were concerned about your foreign hotdog.

Of course, I have my daily eye-icecream with my neighbor and his bike everyday, but short sleeve weather means at the MRT and on the street I have lots to look at. So please keep up with the exercise evanglism.
As to the stick figure girls, it is hard to live in a country that so heavily promotes the 1.70m, 49 kilos ideal as normal. But I guess the West also has this problem. Nevertheless, I am happy to say that I can carry a microwave oven on the MRT, no sweat, all the way home. I do the 30 second, 200 meter, daily commute run without breathing hard. I like to feel strong and healthy and I hope that this idea of helathy exercise can be instilled into the public consciousness, as an alternative to the stick figure, high pitch, pale as death, walking zombie stereotype.

I chalk some of it up to the alternatives just not working for folks. Others are like the lady Bismarck talks about -- they aren't built for normal aerobics-only type fitness and never will be. Usually when those types of folks find us it's like a breath of fresh air since they don't have to cardio themselves to death to get in shape.
It'll take time but this kind of fitness is popular everywhere else so it'll eventually catch on here and all of you will be ahead of the curb.
So keep up the good work!

Also, any idea where I can buy chalk and a decent belt (oly or PL doesn't matter, I left mine at home)
