Yesterday, I gathered Edmond, Jolene, Charlene, Allan and Jianling to go cable skiing at Batam. Moses came along as well and we reached Waterfront Cable Ski Park at around 10 (Batam time).
Truth be told, I was disappointed to learn that we were not the only group there. Apparently, there were about another three groups and one of them happened to be Jo’s and my teammates :?
Anyway, we started and I was pretty glad I could manage to stand on the board
Edmond fell many, many, many times. And for the whole day, he only managed to stand until the first turn. He learnt much faster than me on my first try.
After a number of tries, Jo switched to being a spectator. I’m sorry sister! I hoped you weren’t bored
I was bored at work at the office. And after reading through Aein‘s list, I decided to write one as well. (I found out a lot of things that Aein and I share.)
So, if you’re bored or you want to know some things about me or if you just like reading lists about people, feel free to read my 100 Things List
Just a quick post (since I’ve been asked to update) to say that I’m doing rather okay minus the fact that work and debts have been piling up Also, to check in and say that the next post would be filled with photos
Also, Happy Birthday Xianfeng! Hope you’ll enjoy it despite having your last mid-sem paper
Meanwhile, to those having their holidays, enjoy them; those who just completed their last paper, have fun with the new school term
And on a final note, I finally decided to sign up for Gravatar!
Well, with the hackings and all, I can’t believe there goes the month of June. Lost my one and only entry in June but I guess I cannot really do anything about it
I met Joycelyn at Dover and headed to Tampines to visit a chinese medical hall to “poke needles” (acupuncture) for my still-swollen left pinky.
The train ride felt pretty short because I kept her laughing over my funny stories and she updated me on the trainings at the ever-dirty Kallang River. Seems like most of us are still not into the whole training-mode.
Anyway, thank goodness she was with me to act like a translator with the acupuncturist. I seriously felt like I was lost in translation halfway while explaining to ther about my finger. After poking three needles, I felt like an incense holder when she started burning this lump of herbs on the needle that was stuck on the joint of my finger :?
After that, we slacked a tad at Starbucks while waiting for Jolene to join us. After a quick dinner at the food court, we went for our first referee practical session at TP.
I really envy TP’s swimming pools. Yes, pools. And we had only one lousy pool that we cannot even fully utilize because we have to leave a few lanes for swimmers Their pool is like, 10 lanes wide. So it felt really huge.
As I have not trained for more than six weeks, I felt like I have somewhat lost touch with canoe polo. Thus, I did not feel very confident about the practical session But after shadowing Raymond (the instructor) for two matches and observing two more, I felt more familiar with the game and the rules.
So when it was my turn to ref the match with Jolene, I felt more confident. And I made a good call for a five-second foul
Overall, I would say it was quite an eye-opener. To ref a match, that is
Lots of things; Too little time.
This will be a first:
- The whole of last week was working for the Fujitsu roadshow in school with Joycelyn and Lilin. Worked non-stop for almost nine hours straight. Got used to eating lunch at 1730 hours.
- Ended up sleeping in school for three nights to save time on transportation.
- Saturday’s polo training was fair. Had friendly matches with TP and the national team.
- Still working a few days for the roadshow this and next week.
- Very, very, very tired.
- Campfire’s tomorrow. Can’t wait
23 more days…
One of the reason why I don’t quite enjoy BBQs during chalets:
