Xterra Malaysia : Important Event Updates

Two important updates from the organiser of Xterra Malaysia over the past 3 weeks. The first one was the dispute with the entrance fee that discriminate expatriates that (legitimately) works and stay in Malaysia. The organisers agreed that it was only fair to allow the expats to sign up at the same rate as fellow Malaysians. Kudos to that!
Nice touch
I believe the organiser has won over a few support from the expats community that does local races. I personally know many of them and the sincerity of the organiser listening to the grouses was cookie point in my opinion. 
PayPal, Credit Card or Cash?
With the popularity of the Xterra branding being known by more people, with many not owning credit card or a PayPal account, the organiser has shown understanding by providing an option to register "offline and pay in cash". This was announced at the Xterra Facebook page on January 22, 2013.
No more excuse NOT to register
