4 Pics 1 Word Fun!




So far, this is the only mobile phone game that I like alot. Here are the difficult ones which have stumped me. See if you can tackle them!


21112010 Swissotel Vertical Marathon.

Well. So it happened. And I liked it :) 4th. Now ain’t that something huh. And I am in a VERY motivated cum inspired cum excited state now. When I capitalise very, you know something’s going on. I am going to sleep early from now on, so I get a good rest, and I am going to be hardcore. And I am going to do this because this is what I am good in and this is what I can be good in when I put in effort, and this is what I like putting effort into. 12.44. Aint that something huh!

And I love all the heartpounding sessions. Suddenly feeling breathless is thrilling. I’ve taken to it. I like the feel of my heart beating very very fast.

I am really happy!

Snap The Moment!

Today left me with pretty many reflections.

Different people pass by in your life and as much as you hope now that tomorrow comes and they will find their way back to you again, this future reality just doesn’t precipitate. (Reminds me of the FoS shirt tagline ‘if you are not part of the solution, be the precipitate’ or something to that effect.) And sometimes tomorrow washes up more people and the whole round of wishing starts again.

Have been having IFG soccer trainings, weixian and I, and attendance has been discouraging quantitatively, which I insist in attributing it simply to the lack of interest in the mosaics of the population. But qualitatively, it is heartening to see some who haven’t been touched by the beautiful game, to slowly come to appreciate it and come. Today, it was only the two of us for the first whole hour, and we had the honour of getting to know and play football tennis with German exchange student Andrea, 22 years old. She started playing soccer at 16, and she plays for a club outside university at home, much like the non-professional Bishan Arsenal type of setting. A cool person. Ball control was very impressive, she held her own and owned both of us singlehandedly.

Really hope she comes down again and I can get to play with her again. Rare to find someone who enjoys football tennis. Hope I can find a friend someday who shares the same interest in soccer and juggling. Please come down next Wednesday, don’t be too busy please. Times like this I hope tomorrow will bring encouraging developments. Too cool to let up. Her short hair and cool sideswept streaked fringe. So much to learn from her.

Need to consolidate my quests and not leave them halfcompleted. Today Yingjie was genuinely impressed by my ambidextrosity. (I made that word up). Must say I am pleased with myself. And must continue with my Braille inquest. Shows that people are people, no matter what race or what disability they are or have. Everywhere you go, there will be people who are difficult. Sometimes feel like giving them a tight slap or hard punch. Who do they think they are to try to antagonise others. Then right at the same place you can find the sweetest people on earth. And that pretty much leaves you without any comments.

I think I should get myself a laptop of my own. So that I can be free to work on it with this beloved Place, at a decent performance level. No more gritty pausing youtube videos.

Things to do:

  1. Print derrick’s notes in library
  2. Take photos consistently!

Paint Almost Drove Me Crazy.

Just to get this done in the old computer took me the whole afternoon, because I couldn’t find a way to resize it properly such that the collage took up the whole picture. But eureka, one click of desperation and it came out right. Anyway so, up to now 040810, I have collected 9 different cups, and I have 3 Toastbox ones and 2 yakuns.



And I live to tell the tale of how I conquered ONE STAR KAYAKING COURSE, with a very unlikely group of people put together, Justin and his girlfriend Charlyn, and Tingwen.

Besides being a shade or probably a few darker, having a sore shoulder which very thankfully isn’t than that, and severly aching body, it’s been a good experience. But I’m very embarrassed by my horrible technique or the lack of it and also the same for my strength and fitness. Where has all the 3kg night weights effect gone to? I’ve got to hit the gym again when school starts. And I’m hot all over now. An overheated engine.

I’m terrified of capsizing. There’s a deep rooted fear of drowning stuck upside down inside the kayak. The first time we tried it out, the water shot into my nose, and the second day my stupid sandals kept getting stuck in the kayak. I’m not good at steering the kayak properly, and I can’t do the rafted TX rescue drill smoothly.

However, for all the weaknesses, it was well worth it for the times I paused and looked above at the blue endless sky, and around me at the skyline, the Singapore flyer and on the whole all the giant structures beside me that form such a pretty landscape. There is great comfort and peace in taking in the scene and feeling so small, so manipulatable in the middle of all these things, alone in the boat. Floating, bouncing with the waves calmed me plenty. That no matter what, things are only this small. We don’t have to take ourselves and especially our problems so seriously. It’s really really beautiful.

It’s time to move on now. I don’t know if I will do the two star eventually, I acknowledge that I still haven’t confronted my fears openly, but surely I will take it up leisurely.
