… 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:

Since it was Valentine’s Day yesterday, I decided to wear my Threadless Stupid Cupid tee!

I should have bought a size S so it looks kind of big on me :?

Stupid Cupid'
I so love this design!

I stayed up and made breakfast for my family. I made french toast, and, guess what? Yep. The toast was heart-shaped!

The Sunday before, we were two clowns dressed alike (black pants/skinny jeans, Hollister Co. tees, sneakers and sling bags). It was so amusing we stayed out all night and Weili did crazy stuff. Check it out:

Last Sunday, we were five idiots gorging on 80 pieces of chicken nuggets (with curry sauce!) from MacDonald’s. My colleagues and I actually got high on them Not to mention our stomachs felt like bursting. It is going to be amusing whether they will continue eating nuggets this Sunday. I won’t be joining them though

Anyway, it’s birthday time!

Happy 24th Birthday Jun Wei Sweet!

I guess you don’t want to take pictures with your candle or me anymore But it’s okay! You’ve got a spankin’ nice gift (Yeah, it is so hot it burnt 87346589 holes in my pocket. Ha!)

Happy 20th Birthday Joel di!

So you’re older once again

Let’s see here. I am still waiting for the photos from the Canoe Polo 3-on-3 Challenge. How was it? Tiring. Try competing eight matches overnight. I described my injuries to my friend and the response I got was, “Sounds like you’ve been to a war.” :?

So I shall post a couple of pictures of Jolene and I at MoS with Rey and her coursemates

Not sure why I was being so squinty-eyed

It is going to be another long weekend, it seems. After this entry, I’m going to rush off to meet my team to move the boats over to NTU for the Canoe Polo 3-on-3 Challenge then play matches overnight there till Saturday morning. Then, I think, move the boats back and then finally heading home to catch some sleep before heading to work later in the night. After my shift, I’m going to head to Jo‘s place for our New Year gathering where I’ll be making them breakfast (and hopefully, eating the leftovers from potluck.) Then, I’m not sure if I should be training on Sunday afternoon before going off to work at night.

I wanted to do my first Friday 5 of the year but I realized that the questions were way too hard to answer. 2007 was not a good year :?

Someone texted me this that almost made me laugh out loud in public:

Happy new year to you, my cute, lil’, butch-lookalike, spit-loving friend.. =D

New Year’s Eve was terribly packed! My workplace was slammed with 8974509239047 customers trying to order drinks! By the time 0000 hours rolled around, the fireworks began and the balloons were released, I was standing by the bar, totally exhausted, waiting for my drinks order to arrive so that I could send it to a customer.

I can’t remember how many freaking champagne bottles I opened, but let’s say that the bar ran out of Moet and ran low on Mumms.

Since my New Year was quite boring, a couple of pictures from Christmas
