Crime rates increasing! Poor JY!

Went home to do some work then headed to Dr Jansen Koh's place to get stuff! Was gonna make it a quick visit but stayed to chat. Spent quite some time there. They kept tempting me with food and feeding me! Gosh! Had a nice chat with Jan & Pat. My brother is DAMN funny. Visit He is MAD!!! NERDY. He actually bought the domain name. Like what the...

Anyway, I saw TWO rainbows while driving home! Once on the expressway and once at Seletar Reservoir!!! Niiice.

Met Seppie for dinner this evening! We were hanging downtown! Anyway, it's been lifetimes since I went out with her! And of course we discussed running. Gosh. I feel so fired up to run again. Nice to chat with people of similar passion. I learned that Seok took part in the Standard Chartered MARATHON (as in 42.125km) last year. Susie ran 21km. So did pQ. I'm sure Aud ran something as well. Sep is training for 10km. And Jaime even finds it difficult to run 5km at warm-up pace. Time to get this gal fit. Sep shall be my new running partner! I also seemed to have forgotten that Ms Lee (our coach) said something about me and my performance in (running) competitions to the team. Ouch. Haha. Ok, my mental state has improved in shooting. Much room for improvement but way better than last time. My x-cty team mates would know.

Anyway, if you don't already know, Cedar X-Cty Gathering:
Date: 17 Feb, Sunday
Time: 6pm
Venue: Glasshouse Fish & Co. (Next to Park Mall, opp. Plaza Singapura)

Today is the first time I took part in the Singapore Shooting Association (SSA) Monthly Shoot! Scored 347/400 (again). Anyway, heck the score. I had a breakthrough today. Mental breakthrough??? My mental state was the best I've ever had. It was something I've never accomplished before so I'm kind of glad despite the score. I was (am) super drained after the shoot. Tired.

I went for dinner with my father at Mad Jack (Australian fast food). Just finished some work so now I going to slack by watching television or sleeping.

Finally got to eat the Steak Sandwich at Tuck Shop again! LOVE IT! Haha. There were 7 of us there (LK, JS, JF, CN, XY, HJ, JK) . The ambiance there in the day was so different from the last time I was there! After food, we went for a KTV session. Quite a relaxing day. Happie food, happie company, happy me!

Friday, January 25, 2008


Had the AWC Inter-Faculty Shoot this evening! There were like 30 of us! Special thanks to JF and MS for organizing this event and handling the crowd so well (given such circumstances.. rather challenging!) Science bagged a silver for Air Pistol and I got 2nd. Shot 347/400. Hmm. Haven't shot below 350 for some time but I guess it's alright. Grip-ing in progress. Now I know what numbness really is. After I released the grip after the shots, I had to shake the blood back in. Hmm. The grip is just a fraction of the problem. Hmm. Ok, let's not do a review here. Much to learn. Very much.

Patience. Belief.

The desire to excel. The passion to dedicate.
The determination to see it through.

Went for my 2nd bike lesson today! Stage 1.02! There was another guy and another girl at the same stage as me. They were both re-taking the lesson so I was a little worried that I wouldn't pass. After all, the instructor at the last lesson said to all of us "Don't be surprised if you get stuck at 1.02 for a while." Well, I finally got coordination thing right! Riding bike is damn fun! We learned to change gears, engine braking and speed control! We got to ride around the circuit at a relatively high speed! It's shiok man. Anyway, I passed the stage so my next lesson is Stage 1.03! WHEEE!

What I need, when I need it.

Wednesday, January 23, 2008


Spent most of the time doing grip today! Hmm.. Even filed my gun a teeny weeny bit! LoL. I like doing stuff like that just worried that I'd make a mistake. Gosh, it's a painstaking process!!!

Tuesday, January 22, 2008


After work, went down to HTNS to do my grip! Saved quite some time as I spent time analysing the grip on Sunday. Grateful to TC! Anyway, we cut cake for Peng's bdae!!!

Happie Bdae to Da Jie!!!

Attended the Sports Club meeting this evening. Hmm, there's quite a lot of publicity material generated by them. Quite cool!

Sunday, January 20, 2008


Met up with Shena Na and pQ with the objective to drink! For once I left Valen at home! Kept to the usual 2 drinks! Drank a Champagne cocktail (Goodnight Kiss) and a bottle of San Miguel beer. Drank some of Nana's Miller beer. Miller beer is NOT RECOMMENDED by me. It's like flavoured water. There ain't no body. Not sexy. Haha. Anyway, it's been a while since I met up with them like that.

By the way, I went for my first BIKE LESSON! Wah, the bike is SUPER HEAVY! Gosh. I didn't fall but the bike did! Kind of stressful to learn something new. Anyway, I find it difficult to do 4 finger braking with my right hand! My trigger finger is isolated from my other fingers! My instructor kept reminding me to use 4 fingers to brake (not 3). I think that's a good thing though. At least for shooting. It's kind of automatic so that's cool.

Spent the day at LK's place preparing and eating steamboat! Didn't do much preparation work though. Was somewhat slacking. LOL. Jimmy and LK did all the hard work. Anyway, we were there to celebrate Peng's b'dae! The soup stock provided by CR was nice but we really dumped in a lot of food in one go! Like stew! It was a stand-up steamboat.

After that, some of us watched Lust Caution. HMM. ALRIGHT lar, not THAT eggciting.

Friday, January 18, 2008


Hmm.. Had my first Mental Skills Training (MST) session for shooting today. I guess most things for MST is kind of similar to what I've learnt in Track just that I didn't really manage to apply those things.

Anyway, training was good today even though it was quite short. Shot like 20 shots? Spent the rest of the time dry firing.

Grant me strength to forgive... WWJD?

Thursday, January 17, 2008


It's been a while since I had dinper (dinner + supper)! Met up with Sui Hui for dinper! We went to Chomp Chomp! I was so tired prior to that and semi dreaded leaving my house. But.. no regrets! Very happy to meet up with her!!! Exciting. Now I know who to look for when I damn free. We plan to add some eggcitement into our lives! HMM...

Bumped into Chewy there as well! So qiao! LoL..

I like Solarize effect (2nd photo)!!!

I wrote this during the exam period last semester.

Well, what can I say?

Things always seemed better in yester-years,
But did you ever realize back when you shedded tears?

There was a point I realized how great life was as I lived it.
Back then, I knew it’d be history someday soon,
And savouring every moment was the best I could do.

When that episode faded,
All I knew was to re-live it in my memories.
I lived my life looking back for several years,
Failing to appreciate my current life as I stumbled forward.

But I know better at present,
To appreciate here and now as heaven sent.
Not to dwell on the unpleasant,
But to take delight in every incident.

You know what? In other countries, people don't know what a "handphone" is. They use the term "mobile phone".

Anyway, I bought a SE K770i on Friday. I'm "moving in" to it this evening. Been transferring data and adjusting settings all evening. Anyway, after work, met Jimmy at Jubilee to play arcade. Tried playing the drums and Music DJ for the first time. I'm such a klutz! Talk about coordination! I forgot to play DDR! Also, they don't seem to have Marvel vs Streetfighter anymore! Spent a grand total of $12. Hmm. Maybe pool would have been better. Maybe not! Feel like playing CS again but now sure SUPER lousy. Hmm. Ok, I'm determined to start planning my time. I think I'll do that either tonight or tomorrow.

11 Jan 2008
I got a nice grouping at training today! Anyway, we had physical training (PT) for about 30min after the "Technical" training. Fun fun but my abs are so horrible now! That's something that's going to change! At night, we headed over to Coasta Sands (Pasir Ris) which was where out AWC chalet was held! Managed to get some sleep!

12 Jan 2008
We had a BBQ this evening! Anyway, I took an hour to find parking after leaving my original lot! Gosh. Driving was a nightmare! Really skill and judgment sia! Nvm, trains me up for my ambition of being a stunt driver!

13 Jan 2008
We left the chalet in the morning and headed to IKEA for food! We ate at IKEA the day before as well! Anyway, I saw Mr Tay yesterday at IKEA. Didn't acknowledge him though. He looked at me and I looked at him.. I was partially in shock. I might actually have said "Hi" if I wasn't in shock. What's past is past anyway. It was 7.5 years ago!

After food, we headed to LK's place to nua. Haha. And I lost my car key! It ain't in his house and it ain't in my car! That's REALLY WEIRD. Anyway, it's nothing that can't be rectified. Easy peasy. Many thanks to XY for driving me all the way back to get my spare key and driving me back to LK's place! *APPRECIATES* (",)

In the evening, we celebrated big Grace's and Wai Keong's birthdays at Leilani's place! Couldn't stay long though.I was really worried about my keys so I hurried home to search for the keys (to no avail).

Thursday, January 10, 2008


After work, I did more work! AWC related stuff! Anyway, work (of any sort) can be fun when it ain't in excess and when working with the right people! So.. work was fun today!

"Everyone dies but not everyone gets to live."

Wednesday, January 09, 2008


We had a meeting for the entire teamNUS Shooting team! After that, we had other related meetings the entire evening so didn't manage to train. Well, this is the most interesting "Captaincy" period I've had in NUS. Kind of fun!

Tuesday, January 08, 2008


I woke up today and really couldn't make it to work. Diarrhea-ed twice in the morning and a splitting headache! Just came back from the doctor. She's the first doctor I've seen in a VERY VERY long time (my brother doesn't count). She's quite funny. She say I thick skin (and good skin) cos I quite young so will have thicker skin and skin resistance is higher when taking injection. She's afraid of injections but she's not afraid of jabbing people cos she isn't the one getting jabbed. That's a very entertaining morning. I got an injection but also the most painful. Ok, anyway, my guess of the stuff that's causing me this ordeal is Vibrio parahaemolyticus (from what I've learnt anyway).

Ok, I should sleep. Good night/day.

Monday, January 07, 2008


I think I got food poisoning! The symptoms started showing last night! Started with a headache which lasted from last night and is currently ongoing. Kind of feverish at the moment. Gosh. Anyway, bought my bike helmet today with Uncle Fred and pQ!!! Had to rush home though. Sorry, no dinner with you guys.. Really sick! Skipped dinner even at home!

My brother asked me to take MC for tomorrow but.. I really want to be present at work tomorrow! Other days would be fine.

Anyway, I got cheated by the taxi uncle today. He see me small! Oh well.. I was amused as I knew he was cheating me but he was a cheerful friendly guy so I didn't really mind. He double charged me for ERP. Even gave him a slight excess which shocked him. Hmm. Wonder if he feels guilty.

HAPPIE 31st Birthday Jansen!!! Gosh, he's OLD!

Sunday, January 06, 2008


We played basketball in the rain today! I like rain!!! Shiok! Hmm.. Anyway, went for steamboat dinner with JF and Jimmy!

Saturday, January 05, 2008


Woke up at 0630H for an early morning run with Irving! We reached MacRitchie at 0715H and there were so many people! Normal for a Saturday morning I guess. Anyway, it was a good run. Haven't ran that speed for some time. Did about 4.5km!

Anyway, I found a worm in my soup! I wanted to eat it but I think he was disgusted. HAHA.

Updated at 11.09pm:
Met pQ in the evening before she headed for work! We ate Mos Burger at Sunplaza. Happily just bought a lot of stuff and shared (salad, apple pie, soup, nuggets, drink, a burger each)! Nice! Went to the supermarket to help her out with her exciting event! I think I more excited than her! Haha. Fun Fun. Plan Plan!

Gosh, many many work.. Lazy Lazy!!! Been doing admin for the past 3 hours non-stop and before I left for dinner as well too! GOSH!!! More work to be done tomorrow........... Work is good! Me becoming workaholic and liking it! Psycho.. Psycho........!

The view from my garden in the morning.

Heehee. I GOT MY STINGRAY!!! THANK YOU UNCLE RUIZ!!!! HAHAHHAHA. He wanted to give me fishball noodles instead due to some unspoken conditions.. Hmm.. YAY. Training was good today. Cool. Figured some (more) things out and.. it works! So.. I managed a 371 for my 4 best series (out of 6). All of them were at least 90 so that's cool. Managed a 95 as well! Very determined to earn my $12 stingray. According to Jimmy, I haven't been so happie after a training.. Kind of rare? Cos this time got STINGRAY mah! HAPPIE FOOD.

Anyway, after training, we went to Chomp Chomp. Kind of like Maryann's gathering thingy! Poor Peng is sick!!! Gosh. Get well!!!

Thursday, January 03, 2008


Met up with Irving this evening! We had dinner at a Japanese place at Orchard Plaza! Irving introduced the place! After that, we headed over to the Maestro Bistro place at Cineleisure and ate fondue!!! Gosh.. The chocolate is DAMN GOOD!!! First time either of us ate there! LOL. Enjoyed the evening! He's still the same old sweet guy as I remember him!!!

One moment of foolishness.. A lifetime of mending. Maybe more. I'm trying very hard. But I don't know where to start and it doesn't help that I can't remember. The moment I stopped trying, it all fell apart.

My SIM card is spoiled. Can't call out, can't call in and it's the same with SMSes. Currently using another number. For those of you who know my number, please pass it around if necessary! Will rectify the problem after work tomorrow.
