Garbage Fool

After training last night, (well, I did not train but it does not matter for what I am about to post) Michael, Kang Jun gege, Joycelyn, Geok Cheng and I went to have dinner at Berry Nice (is that how you spell it?) since the building where McDonald’s used to locate is being torn down.

Joycelyn insisted that she did not want to eat. But Geok and I knew that she would take the leftovers. So we ordered a larger serving of noodles and Geok took these random photos of Joycelyn eating:

I know, they are a killer.

Anyway, Happy April Fool’s! Don’t get fooled too much :)

“Drink swimming pool water…

… 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! :lol:

The school had the staff toilets renovated as well, and, boy, it’s really a comfort room :D 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! :mad:

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:

3-on-3

I finally got some photos for the 3-on-3 from Kah Woon! :D

Piz-ing Cute Hottie

Well, it appears that I have finally finished watching every episode of Veronica Mars. Jason Dohring is still hot-looking as Logan Echolls but Stosh “Piz” Piznarski is so cute in an indie-rockish way. Well, he’s also adorable when he goes all puppy-eyed at Veronica :lol:

Anyway, to touch on things that have been happening, well, nothing much actually. School’s still a chore (and a bore), still having an assignment that is overdue, a quiz that I managed to convince the lecturer to let me take a re-test (because I missed it due to illness but the doctor refused to grant me a MC) and my project is running behind schedule.

Training-wise ain’t that good either since my back has begun to hurt really bad recently and someone said that I might have a slip disc or something. To think that we are going to have friendlies with NP this Saturday. My arms feel flabby already :cry:

I miss my team :(

Carvivor

So my team went to Sentosa on Saturday to do some relaxing and bonding instead of the usual training. I would not say it was a big success but at least the team talk we had cleared some stuff hanging and tied some loose ends.

Today was Sky Tower & Power98 Carvivor Rally and I had to be up by 5.30 in the morning in order to reach SAFRA Yishun Country Club at 7 to register. My group had Aaron , Xiong and Neo and they can be very, very, very lame (and a tad childish) together.

Oh, and we had a group name, too. When I first saw our name, I literally laughed out loud. Our name was 3 wolves and a not so little sheep :lol:

Carvivor had shortlisted groups so there were 150 groups (of four) trying to win SG$10,000 in cash. I kid you not. Hey, $2.5k is quite handy in my pocket ;) This year’s theme was water so we were told to be prepared to get wet.

Anyway, the challenge kicked off with one person from each team swimming the breadth of the swimming pool to collect the location of the first station. There were five stations in all and our first stop was at West Coast Park, followed by Pasir Ris Park, Sky Tower at Sentosa, some car show room around Ang Mo Kio (I forgot the location) and Choa Chu Kang stadium.

At each station, there were challenges that had water involved. The time taken for all the challenges are tabulated for each group and the group that completes all five challenges in the shortest time wins that $10,000. And, unfortunately, 3 wolves and a not so little sheep did not win :(

But I had fun, I guess. I met Zhi Yuan at the challenge! It’s been a long time since I last saw him. We agreed that we should meet up soon to celebrate our belated birthdays ;)

Retained

The Legend of the Condor Heroes The Legend of the Condor Heroes (1983 TVB Production) will always be my all-time favourite sword-fighting show. Ever :D When I saw that the DVD was on sale at YesAsia, I told myself that I was so gonna get it. Well, once I figure out how to fork out SG$100 first :? Anyway, if you’re bored with nothing to do and you love sword-fighting shows as much as I do, maybe you would like to read up on The Legend of the Condor Heroes :lol:

National Champs are finally over. After this week’s break, we are so going to train hard for SRRR08! :) Artello! Let’s all jia you together! :D
