It's over!
It's so great that exams are finally over.. Now time to enjoy before finding a job and wasting the rest of my holidays. Met up with YACG people for dinner at BakerzInn@RafflesCity then to Quayside@OneFullerton for drinks and desserts. It's a really nice chillout place as it's not very crowded and it has the Esplanade, Oriental Hotel, Singapore Flyer (ferries wheel) view. Everyone's going for holiday.. Hopefully I'll be able to save up enough money to go on a short trip before Year 3 starts.

all i wish for now
All I wish to do now is to laze around in bed, listen to nice music, and read my monthly doze of magazines. Instead, I'm stuck with stupid maths which I'll probably not ever use in the future. Luckily it's all be over real soon..

long jump
September 2005, I've walked away from the pit.
After A levels, I dedicated myself to full-time training (5 sessions/week) during the long break before University started. It's hard to find a good coach who's willing to coach me for free. Even as I was in the national junior squat, there isn't any assigned coach to guide us. The first major setback was when my coach at that time told me she couldn't help me anymore due to other commitments. The last competition before release, I proved myself by doing a personal best of 5.62m which got me into the Sea Games pre-selected squat. After that was a downslope as I struggled to get a new coach. Training plans were disrupted and often, I was left to train on my own. Results from each competition got worst and I was demoralized. Also, the internal struggle with SAA got complicated. They lack support but demands results. Finally at Singapore Open 2005, I failed to meet the Sea Games cut off for long jump and that was it.

I don't know whether I did it in a fit of anger or because I was utterly demoralized due to the lack of improvement. My track friends had moved on and I was alone. People couldn't understand my delication for it. Now, I often question myself the reason for giving up. Could I not withstand defeat?

I really wish to compete again but I don't know whether the dedication and strength is still there. One thing for sure, the passion hasn't died.

extreme makeover home edition
Watching this show always make me realise how fortunate and blessed I am. Unlike other versions of extreme makeover (plastic surgery), this edition is really meaningful and touching. Gotta watch it when u are free.

happy birthday darling
Happy 22nd Birthday darling! We went to Jade@FullertonHotel where they served modern chinese food with a twist. Instead of eating from a common plate, the chief prepares each person's serving individually. Mouth watering food!

Presents: Emporio Armani watch plus a $30 parking ticket.

rumours kill
Update on the issue of my NEW neighbour.
I've heard from a mutual friend that the reason they bought this new place is because their current unit is gonna en bloc. Curious about the matter, I went to find out more.
About 2 months back, my dad's friend who owned a unit at that condo decided to get a consultant to calculate the plot-ratio to see the possibility of en bloc. The results came back negative as that area won't be able to attract any developer to pay off all its current residents, tear down, and redevelop, making a profit. He decided to sell his unit.
So when I heard that the condo was filing for en bloc, I was a little surprised and decided to ask my mum to check it out with her colleague who also happens to live there. He said that currently, there's no specific action and they MAY initiate action NEXT YEAR. There haven't been meetings or whatsoever regarding en bloc yet, just wishful speculations.
From my understanding, the whole procedure of en bloc takes a really long time. From the proposed en bloc meeting to the actual closing of the deal, it takes a year or even longer. And based on the current plot-ratio, en bloc probably won't even happen in the near future (5 years) even if they initiate action. Nithe's old place has been talking about en bloc for a super long time but there's no finalization till now.
From my point of view, they are simply buying a new unit because of the rumours of the possibility of en bloc. Seriously, who in the right sense of mind will jump into buying a new house based on pure speculations of en bloc? Unless they are super rich and they can afford to buy a new unit as a form of investment, otherwise, they are jumping the gun to make an unresearched, wishful decision. At the end of the day if their current place don't obtain en bloc, they will be stuck with 2 units at hand and be forced to release 1. I may not have this new neighbour afterall.
Rumours kill!

A dear friend of mine sent me this lovely birthday postcard from LONDON! I was thrilled when I received it. She could have tagged my blog, or drop me an e-card. But no, she went through the trouble to send me this conventional card through SNAIL MAIL, crossing borders.. Also, it reminded me so much of the time we used to train together, hanging out during or after competitions. Damn I miss those days. Thanks so much babe!

Also, thanks Jess for being the SECRET agent. heehee

omg omg omg
I'm gonna have a new neighbour which I'm totally not excited about. In fact, I dread it. Wish that I can shift out immediately, and stay far far away from them. Not that I've bumped into them before, 1 bus stop away was bad enough. Now it's the same block!!!! OMG
This may sound childish but I can definitely dislike someone base on first impression.

Have been flooding myself with LSM webcast for CA2 which happens to be 2 weeks before exams. In a way, I'll know how much I don't know during CA2 rather than die flat during exams. If only boring modules like LSM be spiced up into a show or song so help us memorize those nasty proteins more easily. Seriously, I don't see a point in us studying all this shit at all, not that we will ever use it in the future. Even if needed, everything is juz a click away. Why bother stuffing our brains with ridiculous codes?
Sometimes I really wonder whether I have a brain that's functional. In fact, I feel more like a robot, copying things then regurgitating them when something similar is spotted. In what way is that thinking? Can't wait for exams to be over! Rather it come sooner than having more time to cramp things that makes no sense to me.

sea please indulge me
My body is a little lag.. Throughout the whole afternoon out at sea, I was feeling fine. No rocky feeling or giddyness. But at like 8pm, everything seems to be shaky.. As long as I close my eyes, I can still feel the waves. Even took another sea sick pill when I'm firmly rooted on land. What a joke! I think my body loves the sea so much that she decided to tune herself to suit the waves.. Photos will be up soon! HAPPY ;)
