I finally got some photos for the 3-on-3 from Kah Woon!
Geok Cheng, Me and Joycelyn
Chasing for the first ball.
Training with Joycelyn and Geok Cheng was pretty fun Even though less than half the team turned up, it was still okay. I admit I was not in the mood to train but the moment I started passing balls, shooting and keeping, my eagerness returned
Simon was around to guide us and teach us. I believe we’ve learnt quite a few things and improved on our shooting
Another good thing about training today was that the sun was bright, hot and sunny! So I got darker and that makes me a happy kid!
After that, we had a meal at Suntec. Then Joycelyn had to leave for work. So Geok Cheng and I walked around Suntec, browsing through the newer shops and finding nothing interesting to buy. Well, until we went to CityLink’s Giordano store and saw that the racer-back tops were going at $8 (with a minimum purchase of two tops). So we both got a black medium one
(You can see how my hair looks like without a cap.)
Oh! The stuff I bought online came! Three different packages arrived two days ago and I was so excited! Here’s the Hollister Co. tee I got and I really think it’s a swell purchase
After that, I gave Geok Cheng her early birthday present I got for her a couple of months back–a Phillip Soven autograph
I hope you like it! I was afraid that your interest in him had diminished while he was here for Wakeboard World Cup 2007 :? Just glad that you were just as excited as I had hoped you would be
So, what did you initially think I got for you?
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
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
I miss my team
The Legend of the Condor Heroes (1983 TVB Production) will always be my all-time favourite sword-fighting show. Ever 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
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!
Shout out loud! We won!
Happiness and excitement will never be able to express how I felt yesterday the moment the buzzer went off.
Anyway, let me explain. We played another five matches in the weekend and we lost all of Saturday’s games. However, my team wasn’t too upset about it since we did not feel like we played very badly. In fact, we were laughing over the funny and amusing stuff that happened during the matches over our debriefing.
On Sunday, we were up against NUS again for the IVP category. We lost 1-3, but, we felt pretty good over that single goal
Then it was a six-hour wait till our next match in the afternoon. I spent it by sleeping, eating, watching a match or two and talking with Siao Jia. I think the afternoon sun kind of sapped up our energy because by the time we got into our boats, Jolene went, “I feel like sleeping.”
Well, two days of matches are over. So are four of our games. I guess you could say it’s good and bad.
We played with Devlin 2 on our first match on Saturday. Jolene and I were saying that if we lose this match, we might as well quit canoe polo or something since Team Devlin consists of juniors from NP.
We won 5-0 but we played quite a bad game. We made many bad passes, missed a few open shots and did not give our 100%. The next two matches of the day made us more demoralized. Our second match was an IVP match against TP and of all referees, we had a referee who did a bad ref job in one of our matches in SRRR.
We lost 1-5 and most of us were pretty down. When it was time for our last match of the day, it was pretty hard to carry on fighting since we were up against TP Munchies who is an alumni team.
We lost 0-10 and I felt rather lousy when they scored their 10th goal because it was like SRRR all over again because back then, during the final minute or so, one of them yelled to make their score a double digit. When they were still at their 9th goal, I told myself I wasn’t going to let them score another. That’s why I still managed to block two of their shots. But I guess it’s meant to be another event where history repeats itself.
Stanley was lecturing us the same way he lectured us in SRRR. And it was right after the match with the same team. But I guess we could all feel that there wasn’t any bond nor chemistry between all of us and that was what I was quite disappointed in.
So we talked things out, said how we felt about everything and encouraged each other to give our best for Sunday.
Sunday’s match against NUS was a should-draw-but-try-to-win match since they are a team that has more experience than us. But by the 6th minute into the first half when we managed to score a goal, it became a should-win match instead. But I guess it wasn’t really meant to be when I let their goal in I need to bring home Daren’s paddle and practice at home or something.
Anyway, as Stanley said, a goal would greatly boost of morale. And even though we drew the match, we could tell that everyone was in better spirits. I guess we all went home, had a good rest and tried not to think about the losses.
Jolene and Kang Jun pulling each others’ hair as Lilin pose along
I think Jolene‘s going to kill me for posting such an unglam photo of her
Anyway, my package finally came!
