Carbo Kid's Birthday and a Discovery

Carbo Kid turns 2 today! It's hard to believe that it's been 24 months since he popped into our lives. It's been challenging so far and it can only get more difficult - all part of growing up.

As yesterday was a public holiday, the three of us we went for a nice lunch at the TGI restaurant at Subang Parade. As we were strolling around the mall after the heavy meal, I came across an outlet selling orthortics and special shoes. Orthortics are special shoe inserts to assist those with biomechanical problems such as over pronation, foot alignment among others. I was also surprised to find some Brooks running shoes on their shelves. Although I don't require orthortics, finding a store that sells them over the counter (as well as via prescription) is rare. Podiatrists are usually the ones to recommend these aids.

I don't remember the name but the store display looked a little on the expensive side. Indeed, those who went in had that rich look as well. I'm sure this store is a boon to runners seeking some foot relief. If you're one of them, it's located next to MPH Subang Parade, next to a children's educational shop.
