We were supposed to play our final two matches on Saturday. But the night before the matches, I received two news that affected me. One was that a team (Torrent) pulled out so we were to play with TP 2. The second news was that we were short of one man–Joycelyn met with a motorbike accident and was unable to play.

I would have thought that my team would be pretty demoralized on the day itself. Perhaps it was because of Joycelyn’s injury. Perhaps it was because she still came down and gave us her full support. Or perhaps it was the final match.

We played… well, rather well

On my personal side, I was actually a bit depressed and down due to several factors. Not to mention I was let down once again. I really should not have hoped too much but I guess one can never really stop hoping, eh?

I guess a surprise visit from an old friend cheered me up. After all, semi-professional photographs of my team would be a bonus

Well, the annual Singapore River Raft Race (SRRR) Canoe Polo Competition started on Saturday. Looks like my team has a long way to go before the Pesta Sukan National Championships.

I realised I look pretty retarded. And for your info, I’m #8.

Jiayou Artello!

Remember that Nadine’s agenda for you girls:

  1. Kick Naddy’s ass and whack Naddy’s head as hard as you can when she has the sian diao face. (Stoning face counts as well.)
  2. Constant whackings on Naddy’s head will do her good. (Be careful of concussion.)
  3. Remind Naddy not to look for anyone in the viewers’ stand.
  4. Tell Naddy how much you love her.

But please beware:

  • Push Naddy into the pool and get ready for a flare up.
  • Pull her braids and she’ll throw her temper at you.
  • Say “F you lah!” in Naddy’s face (whether you mean it or not) will result in serious consequences.

Naddy loves all of you. I’m serious.

Note to readers: This is quite a long as well as image-heavy post.

Friday was dear Jolene‘s 18th birthday as well as the start of SPCT camp.

We had a lunch celebration with the team. And Jo’s classmates surprised her with a hawaiian pizza with candles

Happy Birthday Jo!

Happy Birthday Jo!

I was a GL with Lex and this year, I had the largest group of 11 campers. Ichi (as in one in Japanese, and which we called ourselves) consists mostly of enthusiastic and pretty sporting freshmen which I’m glad to have. But I guess I started the camp with a lot of energy that gradually winded down by the end of the first day.

Thought I’ll never reach this year in my life but, hey! I’m in my final year!

Not really looking forward to the re-opening of school to be honest. On Sunday, the day before school starts, SPCT had a team dinner at Marché at VivoCity.

It was a tad disappointing (food-wise, that is) because there is no more pizza and the cooked vegetables. Besides Rosti, there wasn’t any other thing that I was keen on eating. Furthermore, that place is much, much smaller than the former outlets at Heeren and Suntec City.

After most of the seniors have eaten something, they decided to go somewhere else to have their fill (since the food selections at Marché were limited and not to mention rather pricey) with most of the junior guys.

Leaving us:

One last day at the Fujitsu laptop roadshow tomorrow! I can’t wait. This job seriously caused me lots of sleep deprivation. Anyway, Thursday was another day at work and before I left, I took this picture:

There were many boxes of bottled water so we had this drinking competition. The results from about five staffs were 37 bottles
