Went to Singapore Sports School to visit Mr Paul as he's leaving Singapore for good. On my way there, memories started flooding my mind, about the times when i would rush down from school, rot on the bus for 45 mins, then take another 10 min walk to SSS (it was quite inaccessible back then coz SSS was new). Mr Paul would be sitting near the track with his cap, his backpack and his stopwatch. Sometimes, we could hear him scolding across the field in german. All those were 3 years ago, yet memories of it felt so vivid.
When we arrived, we found out that we intruded his 'COACH party'. Coaches from german, russian, australian and local coaches were present. Felt weird initially but juz sat around and listened to the stories they shared. Also, caught up with Xiaofeng and Hakeem. Mr. Valerie drinks hard liquor like water. Finished half a bottle in like 2 hours.
Afterwhich, Hakeem allowed me to be his pillion rider on his new bike. Virgin bike experience was thrilling and chilly. hahaha..
Mr Paul will definitely be missed. He has really taught and inspired me greatly.
