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

Headed for circuit training at Yishun Park in the hot noon sun. Been wanting to head there for some time but this is the first time I managed to. Went to shoot after that, not a smart move! In the evening, headed to ECP to skate with Ivan.

“"I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit.

"No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."”

The Climb by Miley Cyrus
I can almost see it
That dream I’m dreaming but
There’s a voice inside my head sayin,
You’ll never reach it,
Every step I’m taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking but I
Got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I'm going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

The struggles I’m facing,
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes they might knock me down but
No I’m not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
And I,
I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on,

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I'm going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Somebody's you're going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

Keep on moving
Keep climbing
Keep the faith baby
It’s all about
It’s all about
The climb
Keep the faith
Keep your faith
Whoaaa Ohwaoooh

For the moment...

Even if your hope has burned with time,
Anything that is dead shall be re-grown.

Celebrated HY's birthday at Zen Cafe this evening! We ate kangaroo and cod! Mister Bob, the balloon dog, got the real dogs all confused!

Oh yeah! Happy Birthday Mr Ho! (",)

Getting better at it.
Not sure if I want to.
The better you are at something, the harder it is to let go.

Anger leads to hate.
Hate leads to suffering."

Had a mini gift exchange at work today!
Something funny:

I Resign

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult.
I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8-year-old again.
I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make ripples with rocks.
I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.
I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer day.

I want to return to a time when life was simple.
When all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care.

All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.
I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible.
I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.
I want to live simple again.
I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.'s my checkbook and my car keys, my credit cards and all my responsibility.

I am officially resigning from adulthood. And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first, 'cause,

"Tag! You're it."

Invictus by William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged the punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

HY and I had a lot of fun day today!
  • Fishing @ Seletar Dam
  • Lunch @ Claypot Fun
  • Mini Golf @ Lilliputt HIGHLIGHT
  • Fed many fish at the pond @ ECP
  • Watched "Invictus" EXCELLENT MOVIE

Met up with Mrs Lee (Cedarians should know who she is) today. Ate at this cheap and good Thai place at Kovan. People have to queue/wait for the shop to open!
In the evening, we celebrated Jan's birthday at a seafood place at Changi Village!

Watch your actions,
They become your habits.

Watch your habits,
They become your destiny.
