After the last time I went drinking (and when I say drinking, I meant drink a lot), I have been refraining from drinks altogether. However, after the last drinking session, I drank for another three days straight.
I drank on Saturday because I was down. And, apparently, a childhood friend was down as well. So I offered to drink with him on Sunday night.
We went cheap drinking by meeting near Bedok Reservoir and purchased beer, ice and some snacks at the supermarket before making our way up to the top of the multi-storey carpark.
It was nice, just sitting at the top, talking and sharing every other moment
Last night, on a rather last minute note, I met up with Sam, a primary school classmate of mine. I suggested drinking (again!) and so we had beer and martinis
A random picture of Jonathan Tay drinking at my workplace last Friday as the guys came over to celebrate Jon’s 23rd
The birthday boy and Me
I have another picture of Jonathan Ang and myself but I look super retarded and Jon Ang looks super act cute. Plus, it was a rather drunk Jon Tay that took the picture :?
On a random note, I went to the hairdresser’s last night and I like my shorter, thinner and straighter hair right now!
I was working on Sunday night when Charlene texted, asking me to head over to Mervin’s birthday chalet after my shift. I was hestitant to join since I did not know Mervin that well (besides that one drinking session with a few others) so I asked if I was invited.
She replied with his text invitation (which he massed texted to those he invited) and I replied, asking in a joking manner I was invited by him or she had forced him to Well, I went down to the chalet anyway.
I arrived just as Mervin was about to put out the BBQ pit. He cooked me some really tasty meat as well as a couple of hot dogs as Charlene introduced me to the small group that was hanging around, drinking and gambling. There was his wife, JD and his girlfriend, Morris, other ex-NAB staff and their girlfriends…
After clearing up, Mervin, Charlene, Morris and I sat down and started playing card games. Loser drinks the cup of beer. We could go a round and either pour more beer into the cup or pour out the beer. Morris kept getting the smallest card and kept putting off drinking the beer until there were four cups in front of him. I think out of the 13 rounds we played, he lost like, nine rounds? And we all helped him with his beer :mrgreen: But apparently it was still too much for him and he puked later on :?
Even though it was not a big thing, it felt nice and I enjoyed myself
My internship started last week and it’s boring. Well, and somewhat demanding. This is a reason why I will never get a full-time job at the office.
Since last week, I have been pulling a five-day-six-night week. I am somewhat amazed that I can just sleep for about three hours a day, pull a nine-hour long office job, then a seven-hour shift at the bar. I guess I can now claim the title Charles gave me a few months ago: Superwoman
It was pretty much a lousy day yesterday with oversleeping, getting to internship an hour late, getting crap from the higher up folks, being demanded to do stuff that gets rejected 7863458976 times, re-doing those stuff 7863458977 times, listening to someone tell me something that I have been suppressing for months so now it becomes a reality, missing training because of internship, getting to work late because of internship…
Okay, basically, internship sucks.
That is why I wanted to go drinking. So, after work at half past three this morning, some colleagues and I ended up at a bar drinking beer and Chivas and watching the Chelsea-Liverpool match. I am not much of a soccer fan but I supported Liverpool this morning. In fact, everyone else was supporting them. But darn Chelsea! If that penalty was not scored, it could have been a draw.
Charlene was the only one rejoicing and making a whole lot of noise, irritating the shit out of everyone else (She is only supporting them because Liverpool kicked her team, Arsenal, out.)
I enjoyed myself tremendously. It made me forget (more or less) about my lousy day. And it made me look forward to working tonight
Yeah, I love working
Note to readers: Tiang is a term we use whenever the ball hits the goal frame. Technically, it should be diang. But I guess we’ll just go along with tiang, eh?
Yesterday’s training was one of the very few trainings that had all eight of us down to train together. And, of all days, it had to be a day where almost everyone willingly joined the new tiang club—SPTC—because almost all of us kept tianging.
When I was doing some stationary shots, there was this time I tianged four times in a row. Four times! It was so frustrating that I got really angry and it made my following two shots in
I did not practice keeping for a long time. So, initially, practically everyone’s balls kept ramming into the goal. But after getting the hang of it, I managed to keep pretty decent balls. Especially those thrown by the alumni guys And Jackson tianged three times in a row! Jacky was much worse. Almost all his balls kept tianging.
Geok Cheng was saying that we practically tianged more than 50 balls yesterday :?
We played pretty okay with the guys. We managed to score three goals, too. If only we can play like this on Saturday (minus all the tianging), we could probably trash the other two teams
It would be Joycelyn’s last match with us So Geok was saying we should try and let her score as many goals as she can this Saturday
It is always amazing to discover the bruises and cuts and abrasions one can get after a training session. It is more of a wonder when one does not realise how one got the injury to begin with.
Check out my bruises on my right arm from keeping:
I decided not to upload every single photo since there were probably 8349053489756 photos of the match itself (which may not look that great) so I just zipped and loaded the group photos. If you want the match photos, feel free to ask
April 5: Day 1
April 12: Day 3
April 13: Day 4
The Genting trip was okay, I guess. The rides were fun but we had the down moments. Especially the terrible service we got there. Not to mention the discrimination. Urg.
Anyway, we played pretty okay last weekend. We were up against NTU on Saturday, and Redtide and Devlin on Sunday.
I guess despite the lack of trainings together as a team, not to mention it’s not the team I have been playing together with for the past two years, we played pretty okay. Not too bad in my opinion. But we could have done better. Maybe we will show them this weekend
My new team (We so need a new team name)
I’m surprised I did not capsize here
