More than a week without internet connection is really awful. Thus, the reason why I have not been online lately

Anyway, I have much to blog but since it has passed (and it was rather long ago), why bother? Anyway, I have a brand-spankin’ new Sony DSC T300. And, as Sabrina (from Sabrina, the Teenage Witch) would go: “WHOO HOO!”

(You have to forgive me. I have been watching seasons 2 to 6 whenever I did not feel like doing anything this holiday.)

Before I forget, Happy Birthday Shane! I know you’re an old man but that’s still no reason to carry on living like one You’re a really cool dude with a great temper and a fun person to be with. Your laughter is like, darn unique and I can always hear you at the other end of the bar Cheers, dude! (And it’s not like you’ll ever read this anyway.)

Back to the topic: Juno.

When I wiki-ed that, I got a Roman goddess and my birth month. But what I really wanted to find was this:
Juno

Yeah, I know. It took me forever to find time to go to a theatre just to catch a movie. What more everyone else I knew had already caught it and people who have not are not into dramady and those who have not just do not have the time to. I know, how sad can I be?

So, anyway, I just like the note Juno gave to Vanessa:

Vanessa
If you’re still in, I’m still in.
Juno

And so that’s where “Anyone Else but You” by The Moldy Peaches got featured in. I love that song when I found it off some random blog a couple of months back.


You’re a part time lover and a full time friend
The monkey on you’re back is the latest trend
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

You are always trying to keep it real
I’m in love with how you feel
I don’t see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

After leaving the workforce to serve the nation six months ago, Yao Wei and I finally had the chance (and time) to meet up to catch up, chill, and, of course, drink

He was almost an hour late So dinner was on him

I have never, ever eaten crÍpes before. It was not because I never had the chance or that I don’t want to. It is just that I wanted my first taste of crÍpes at Out of the Pan (at Raffles City). So that was where we had dinner first

Out of the Pan

He had some escargot crÍpe while I had smoked ham. So, how was the first taste of crÍpe? Well, since I had smoked ham, it tasted like some ham pizza

I guess I am what people call as “slow to react”. I was fine when I found out what happened. I was smiling and I was fine. I mean, yeah, I guess I could not stop thinking about it but I was fine. So later, when I was alone (I guess being alone makes me feel isolated and more panicky), I guess what was found out slowly sunk into my slow mind. Or maybe, I was processing it and digesting it but not fully able to control it. It’s like feeling on top of the world yet the anchor is pulling you into the depths of the deepest oceans. It’s like being told that I won the lottery and that I’ll be put to death at the same time. It’s like smiling happily yet feeling a slap across the face.

Or maybe it’s just the whole world against me for the day. And that was part of the world.

I wanted to do an entry on my first time cutting up a whole papaya, but, of course, Jo is always more important than an overripe fruit

Happy 23rd Birthday to you dear Jo! We love you always! (Even though we still know that you cannot cut a square cake.)

We had dinner at Miss Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant in Bugis. I had my all-time favourite: Grilled Chicken and Spring Rolls Vermicelli. However, it was not very nice as I have tasted better ones

I think that every year, as we grow a year older, we have to become more mature. So that means no loud birthday song singing and not much camwhoring

Jo, her cake and five candles'
Her cake only had two big and two small candles. So we made her hold the last small candle

Funny how you have been waiting for something for so, so long and when it’s finally here (well, let’s say, the day before) and something (just something, really) happens and things change (and when I say change, it means a lot) and absolutely nothing remains the same (which totally sucks and puts me into a depressing state) and the excitement just somehow dies. Abruptly.

But, then again, it was revived

… and be strong like national team.”

That was what we kept going round when we first started training almost two years ago. It’s a standing joke among my team

Anyway, the school’s swimming pool is finally back! After waiting for almost nine months of renovation and many, many months of dirty Kallang water, we finally have the pool back! And I just found out that the pool water is not chlorine water but… mineral water!

The school had the staff toilets renovated as well, and, boy, it’s really a comfort room I’m just not too happy with the water pressure because that means I will have to take forever to bathe. And I am not sure why nothing possessed the school to renovate the other public toilets as well. I mean, seriously, those toilets need to be renovated that badly and they did not do a single thing to them!

Oh, well.

Anyway, after more than a month of not training (at all!), I went back without much of a mood to train. Surprisingly, I realized that sprinting was not as tiring as I had anticipated it to be :?

But the aftermath of a Saturday training showed up on my system: bruised hands, knees and my lower back, cuts on legs, aching biceps, muscle cramps on toes, ankle, shins, calves, you name it, I cramped it…

At least the pool’s back so more trainings for the upcoming competition in April

On a side note (to Jolene and Geok Cheng), there is a dinner buffet at Funan IT Mall (City Hall) and Park Mall (DG). We could go there and have the Youth Buffet! *ahem ahem*

Finally, on a random note, the stupid turd dropped me into a thorny bush and now I have a big bruise on my knee and thorn cuts on my shin (aside from those attained during training) :mrgreen:
