The initial plan was to work after training on Saturdays and still go for Sunday’s pool slots. However, it seems like I’m just too worn out as well as burnt out (literally).
After training on Saturday, Jolene, Lilin, Joan, Joycelyn, Teresa and I went to NYNY to slack and have a rather late lunch.
Teresa, Joan, Jolene, Me, Lilin and Joycelyn
After finishing up, I could feel the exhaustion from the training seeping into my aching body. Gah! By the time I started work, I could literally sleep walk :?
And no matter how badly I want to train on Sundays, Saturday’s sunburns on my poor nose, cheeks and shoulders are always a discouragement
Part I – The Eve
Polo training on the eve of the Lunar New Year was quite a killer considering the fact that my whole body was still aching from Thursday’s circuit training. I doubt Jolene or Lilin would want to go for the coming Thursday’s cicuit training :?
After training, I just chilled with some of the team since we did not feel like going home just yet. Had some of Hotel Rendezvous‘ pastry and it’s quite good I then made my way to my maternal grandmother’s place for a steamboat reunion dinner
Amazingly, this year we were the second family to arrive because usually by the time we get there, most of them would have been done with dinner already. If you’re wondering, my relatives on my mom’s side do not eat together on a dining table because my mom has like, 12 siblings and even though not everyone turns up on the eve of the Lunar New Year, let’s just say the table can only hold less than the number of bodies present.
After dinner, most of us settled in front of the TV to watch some really badly subbed variety food show. No one changed the channel because apparently, everyone thought the other wanted to watch this dumb show. It was not until my sister asked my uncle and cousins if it was fine to switch channels then did we all find out that everyone wanted the channels switched!
Turns out the satellite at my grandma’s place is so bad that we only had three miserable channels there :mrgreen: So we ended up playing Pick Up Sticks. Very lame, you may say. But it’s much more entertaining than the One-Eyed-Monster. I would show some pictures if only my cousin sends them to me.
It’s the time of the year again where I will wish two guys close to my heart a very happy birthday.
Joel, I know you hardly come here and all that but your jie wants to wish you a very happy 19th birthday! I can’t believe time has passed so fast. I just want to wish you all the best in whatever you do
It’s also dear Jun Wei’s 23rd birthday today (I’m so sorry for the mistake and I can’t believe I still think you’re 22 dangit! :roll:)
We were supposed to head to The Balcony for lunch initially but I guess we were both too tired and ended up napping at my place after church ended. Ah, well, I guess eating there will have to wait for another day :neutral:
The Birthday Boy and Me
Whistling a new tune
Hoping it would come soon
And the sun was wondering if it should
Stay away for a day
‘Til the feeling went away
And the sky was falling on the clouds were
Dropping and the rain
Forgot how to bring salvation
The dogs were barking at the new moon
Whistling a new tune
Hoping it would come soon
So that they could die
I can’t believe that amidst all that’s going on, Nelly Furtado is my source of relief from all these… mess.
Anyway, Moonlight is buried in Jun Wei’s garden. We both know she will be somewhere happier. Hammy Heaven, I’m sure.
One of the things I hope to achieve this year in 2007 is to blog more regularly. So far, it’s not going as planned, I’m afraid. It seems like too many things have happened between the last post and this. Too many events, too many feelings. Too confused, lost and hurt. But, gah, I wish I could do something about… everything.
I watched Death Note 2: The Last Name on Wednesday night. It was a nice movie that I’ll probably only watch it once. I think I still prefer the manga better.
I love Absolut Vodka And the SPCT chalet from Wednesday to Friday sure provided me with Raspberri and Vanilla The thing is that I kinda mixed it with ice cream soda not to mention having Chivas with jasmine tea, I got a little too tipsy :neutral: I got better in the end but not after vomiting, suffering chills and a splitting headache. Meeh. I wonder how everyone could put up with me :?
It has been three weeks since school started and I am already lagging behind in schoolwork.
School can be summarised in one word: bo-ring.
The only thing that makes me attempt to wake up and drag my tired body to school is the fact that trainings are fun thanks to the junior girls.
It’s been a long time since I last blogged. But great news! Lots of pictures for the eyes
I had no sleep on the night before the chalet so after gym training on Tuesday, I had to take a few winks on the train ride from Dover to Pasir Ris.
Joycelyn’s thighs are great pillows
When we got into our room, we started changing into our pyjamas for the PYJAMAS PARTY! We took crazy pictures in which I was not involved in them since I was busy playing Shrek 2 with Joycelyn on Xbox in which I had rented earlier. The others did really weird and hilarious stuff with the toilet rolls and pillows.
