rain rain and more rain!

I thought days after exams will be sunny... who knows it turned out to be the opposite! It's been raining EVERYDAY!

Some updates since exam ended....

A few of us from 29th oac went for a frog porridge cum durian outing at geylang after my last paper on 4th Dec! Find that frog porridge was not as nice as the last time we went there. But wells, the company was good, and that's wat really matters. It's a night full of fun and laughter again.

And I'm back to my canoe polo training! It seems like what I learnt before the exams have been thrown down the rubbish chute. Oh manz I'm so not conditioned to the fast pace now! And my stern turn! It's gone! Today went for training in the thunderstorm somemore! Was so hum of CAT 1! but well, we jus trained continuously for 4 hours in the pool without changing slots with the girls.... Been a shag day of training... I need to get back the feeling and skill for the sport.... exams are so unhealthy.

After training today I went for PA 10 generation gathering at Sembawang park. Of all place, sembawang park! We were conned to alight the bus 5 bus stops away from the destination! Poor us gotta walk all the way down.... And it rained again before we even reached the park. Seeing those PA kids make me feel old! they are like still studying in secondary school while i'm alr beyond ORD. Nevertheless, I can still take comfort that I am not the oldest there. We had a great evening catching up with one another. It seems like zhengwei is still the most successful of us all, only he is attached so far... Anw, BBQ was great! And talking about how life back in rv was... Those were the good old days in white uniform and white shorts, sitting in the control room playing around, breaking the school rules. And the outing ended off with our hokkien PA cheer! One bunch of idiots cheering and breaking the peace of the park... but who cares... although I haven been cheering for long! It's fun though. Thanks juniors for organising the outing and thus the opportunity to catch up with one another. Looking forward to maybe a CNY reunion dinner.

And it continued raining... I think it will rain tomorrow too... can't run!

Two monks and a pretty lady

Saw this from random surfing....
Once upon a time, a big monk and a little monk were travelling together. They came to the bank of a river and found the bridge was damaged. They had to wade across the river.There was a pretty lady who was stuck at the damaged bridge and couldn't cross the river. The big monk offered to carry the pretty lady across the river on his back. The lady accepted. The little monk was shocked by the move of the big monk."How can big disciple brother carry a lady when we are supposed to avoid all intimacy with females?" thought the little monk. But he kept quiet. The big monk carried the lady across the river and the small monk followed unhappily. When they crossed the river, the big monk let the lady down and they parted ways with her.
All along the way for several miles, the little monk was very unhappy with the act of the big monk. He was making up all kinds of accusations about the big monk in his head. This got him madder and madder. But he still kept quiet. And the big monk had no inclination to explain his situation. Finally, at a rest point many hours later, the little monk could not stand it any further, he burst out angrily at the big monk. "How can you claim yourself a devout monk, when you seize the first opportunity to touch a female, especially when she is very pretty? All your teachings to me make you a big hypocrite."The big monk looked surprised and said, "I had put down the pretty lady at the river bank many hours ago, how come you are still carrying her along?"

Upside down

This is a random post.... some ramblings from trying to clear my work.

Looking at my time table, I think uni life can be as slack as I want. Yet, I dunno why am I getting so busy. My schedules of exercising have been disrupted. I am no longer able to wake up early in the morning to do a run or make time in the afternoon to go for my swim. Whenever I plan to go for a run in the night, I would be bogged down by work that I had set out to complete but was unable to. The time table doesn't look full, but why is my time so filled up such that I have to resort to doing things the efficient way, leaving little time to ponder over problems that I am stuck at, yet still cannot clear the work. I think I am those who don't like backlog and at the same time dun want to be a schoolwork NSF. I know these ramblings are not valid because afterall, I am still a year one idiot, the load will be getting heavier. Probably I have not fully adapted to the university pace of life. Probably, my brain is still stuck in the NS times, which doesn't think so fast.

After being in school for about 10 weeks, I realised time doesn't wait for me. I started to value having time more. If money can exchange for time, I would do that. I guess I must learn to embrace the fast pace of life, like it or not. Things to be done must be done now or never. If I were to put them on hold,they will never happen. The vicious cycle of complaining having not enough time will continue. But I wouldn't compromise sleep. Haha, the body is ageing... I need at least 6 hours of sleep nowadays to function well the next day. Wonder how I could go sleepless last time and still have the energy to rush through the next day. And I guess I need to do something to my time management. In the midst of a busy lifestyle, there are always some pple that come across my mind, and these have become my motivations to move on and stop complaining to myself that I am tired or moody. Though I am a student, study is certainly not the most important thing in life. Maybe I should try working with constraints, fitting other more important stuffs into my schedules before finding time out for study.

There are so many things that I wanted to do, but for now, let me just clear my backlog first.

pit stop

Some quick updates....

Been carried away by the increasing pace of life. Recess week dashed past without me enjoying it. Was either doing project or mugging for the term tests. Term tests week passed very fast. And this week was worse. I was trying to clear all the backlog I have created due to midterm. Thought I should just take a break this weekend so that I can get back to the fast pace again tomorrow.

~Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the places and moments that take our breaths away~ I have certainly became breathless.

Days ahead gonna be busy and busy. No choice, according from junyi, Hardwork makes things easier. Dunno how true is that, but I suscribe to that philosophy. Thanks to rv. Really looking forward to the end of semester!

If things are not easy for you now....


1.) Nothing is as easy as it looks.

2.) Everything takes longer than you think.

3.) Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

4.) If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong. Corollary: If there is a worse time for something to go wrong, it will happen then.

5.) If anything simply cannot go wrong, it will anyway.

6.) If you perceive that there are four possible ways in which a procedure can go wrong, and circumvent these, then a fifth way, unprepared for, will promptly develop.

7.) Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.

8.) If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

9.) Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.

10.) Mother nature is a bitch.

11.) It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

12.) Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.

13.) Every solution breeds new problems.

To the airport

Went to the airport three times this week to send my friends off to UK and Japan. To the five of you, all the best! Here's the roll of honour for those who have left (and will be back) and the instantaneous impression when reminded of you, arranged chronologically.
1.YH - Congrats for scolding the army officer during an assembly session in HC.
2. Pek - Before we can see your slapping motion, the fly on the table has already been killed by you.
3. JF - Being turned off by your disgusting buddy in BMT.
4. ZW - Conference with lk using isac card, advising him on project 29.
5. SYing - Always pinching lk.
And I only managed to kope two pics.

At the departure hall, it's only when the departing passengers go to the other side of the glass wall that parents start to shed tears. It's only when they are on the other side that the mood becomes more solemn, that we want to linger a bit more to see you all walking farther away from us, occasionally turning back to wave goodbye. The piece of glass reminds us that we are physically divided from that moment onwards... And we normally only realise that when they are at the other side.
