my first pair of court shoes only $29 from mustafa i will be using them tomorrow officially my most value for money pair of shoes can't wait to play tomorrow! i can really feel us getting better each time we play we can really sustain a rally now! ok i'm looking forward to it!
this is going to be my first post in a really long time i've finally reached the end of term and its exams studying period again i just really wanted to post something to get things started
i know my blog has been dead for like forever and one of my resolutions for summer was to start blogging again
it all started when i discovered twitter recently
as something that i would try out for fun but jy and i both agree that i should blog more because i really do have stuff to share its just that this term i may not have had all the time in the world to share it here anyway, here's to a summer of prolific blogging.
spent a long quiet day at home ok not really quiet i got to do plenty of the things i've neglected like finally fix up the clothing stands for mom fix the new hook brackets on the room windows so the windows dont have to open the whole way and after that mom brought me out for dinner ate at this jap buffet place quite cheap 15 bucks only
but the food a bit crappy the photos do it too much justice
but who cares we went to central to walk a bit we stopped to see this new candy shop its got rolled candy where you can see cool shapes from the side
the owner apparently brought in the franchise from australia just recently he claims they're the only handmade candy shop in singapore dunno if thats true though
funny enough he asked me if i was a blogger cuz i kept taking shots of the place so he sorta asked if i could blog bout his place so here u go mr candyman the wonders of free advertising and testimonials i tried the goods they're quite unique and you should check out the way they make em its like those kind of novelty handmade concepts where u have to see the process then u'll think its cool then we went to see this cool jap shop that sells all the jap candies and snacks and household stuff so that was cool i saw like grape flavoured kit-kat
then i went to meet the best friend to pick up wheels they're gonna go onto the gf's bike gonna set them up tom before ft probably its ft dine in tom and im contemplating bringing my camera anyway all that matters is attendance its going to be at charcoal, the shatec reataurant simple enough last thing for this sem
dad just came back from israel im super jealous cuz they invited me and i said i didnt wanna go cuz need to prepare for exams but looking at his photos (of course i did a bit of editing) i really could've come back with like a thousand pictures but of course if i did i'd spend the next few days sorting and probably flunk my exams and plus i wouldn't get to spend time with my rabbit i really need to get down to studying it seems that during exams my blog activity will increase probably cuz its the easiest thing i can access to change something in this world to say my piece to scream from the studying i really cant wait for this to be over but i do wanna maximize the time i have left
its really been too long since i had my last post and i guess my blog seems to be stagnating just a little bit
but oh well its come to the end of a term again and exam time its always during exams that i always get so reminiscent of the term that passed
this term was significant it represented a step which i have taken which was not in my past nature to i guess in a sense its a commitment not just to the organisation but also to myself to do the best i can in all areas to not think about slacking to work hard in the areas i choose to go into to have purpose and direction
i am just grateful to everyone for being so wonderful this term i really hope that we could build on success and go on to become that which we have envisioned to ourselves
and to you my sweetest without you i dont think that i could've found the courage to take steps to grow in ways i've never considered i can say that you've really come in and changed my life for the better thank you so much for supporting me endlessly for always reaching out to me brown polar grizzly black panda koala teddy love.
if there was a single thing that i took away from last night it would be precisely this the comments and sharing we had all pointed back to this one big intangible the family spirit. something which we should never forget no matter how far we wanna take this i just really hope that one year from now we can all look back and say yes ive contributed to the family i've kept the family together yes we're bound to have our ups and downs but family is about the long run that in the end far away whether we would still care for each other. as friends as brothers and sisters. yes yes, cheesy i know.. there are so many issues i just wish we could all be patient with the process and grow from there.
its been a long while since summer and we've finally come to the end of our biggest show of the year for the biking team the pressure to deliver has been immense and everyone has been looking at this event and working really hard to make it work that is not to say that we didnt have our fair share of screw ups of disagreements of tension of nail biting but ultimately i really hope we can walk away from this knowing that on our end no matter how screwed it sometimes looked but in the end, how was it like from a participant's pov i just really hope that they enjoyed themselves i'm just really glad that most of them were really really sporting so yeah just glad that i had this experience with everyone.
the effects of nightbike preparations going on in my room my whole floor is full of plastic wrappers that were from gl recce nightbike is this weekend i really hope we all pull through and give it our all its been a long accumulation process i dont wanna get it over and done with i want it to be done with patience and to savour every moment and give it my all for the whole of 24 hours.
bursting rays of light tomorrow i will be picking up my flash i really hope to improve with a better flash than the built in one i realised that even with decent lighting its quite hard to take shots with high shutter speed without sufficient light so i got someone to sell me a second hand 420ex so i can play around with flash functions for a while before i sell it off for better stuff can't wait. this coming week is going to be quite busy im having a much better year than last i feel generally more prepared and slightly more hardworking no small part because of my wonderful classmates who are my inspiration and really kick me when i feel lazy thanks, you.
i miss riding its really been a while since i took the bike out or went for a ride actually, more specifically, its been a long time since i took the roadie out plus i need to get a speedo for my bike after my last one had some cable issues i was wondering if i should get cadence back again or if i should even get one at all i felt the speedometer while useful was a limiting factor psychologically, we're used to traveling at different speeds so when we cross our own personal boundary we find it weird and self control starts to set in but if you just go all out there's nothing to worry about you just worry bout holding the person's wheel keeping tight and just exploding when the time is right which is the essence of riding so should i just screw the speedometer? the new white strada cateye is very tempting plus they have a new 2.4ghz wireless model wonder how much that will cost im guessing around 200 bucks oh well, maybe the strada will do no more ugly wires around the frame.
just want you to know that although we have our ups and downs and that sometimes I exasperate you to no end but I just thought you’d like to know that I’ve fallen in deep with you head over heels rolling over in the flowers diving head first leaping with your eyes closed taking the step off right on the edge (well you get the idea.)
so here’s to many more of these. and lets do lunch tomorrow. love.
smu challenge is offering the u-vibe (ie. ur very own vibrator) the fucking sex toy invented by osim just read their ad i dont think its just me curved handle multiple speed "high speed vibration gives that extra oomph" flexible rubber head the girl innocently prancing around in her undergarments its full to the brim with innuendo
for a low low price every single promiscuous sex crazed smu student can find some sort of relief because school doesnt afford you the time or the energy or the libido.
here are the results for the team time trial (we're ridefromtheheart btw) (click to enlarge) held at changi coastal road today we decided to have some fun on the weekend and join a race i realised its damn gay to post a fifth place haha but who cares, it was fun.
my potential new shoe and the features i like about it i went down to swiss valley to try it out today it feels comfortable but with a little pressure around the sides but taking into account that the material will stretch it should be ok
finally back after an extremely long hiatus off the blog i must say that it has become a sort of chore to spend time blogging the last few weeks have been insane with the thailand ride and all i just havent had time for much else and now im back here with nightbike and a whole lot of new activities to look forward to in the new term lets not forget the books and the studying that will come with everything as well i shall post stuff about my trip soon but im extremely busy now still sorting photos and getting ready for a photo exhibition for the 21st what a busy period im blogging to destress

thin crust pizzas prego brunch buffet raffles city
went for prego's brunch buffet with mom yest the spread and the food was very very decent as usual you have your HUGE line of antipastis and your carving station, pasta station pizzas, soup station, dessert spread and free flow of juice thats squeezed in front of u all for fifty one bucks per pax i always hit the beef carpaccios and add my own extra arugula from the caesar section which has the whole bunch of fresh veggies from your buttercup to your romaine lettuce everything is cool and crunchy so its damn good to eat i always tend to overeat whenever i find myself there i didnt eat dinner afterwards but its strange how prego on sundays turns into some family outing restaurant so you have all sorts of kids running around well after all children between 2 - 12 pay only 18 bucks and they have a super cute section with play area and cushions with a tv and lots of gourmet finger food sometimes im tempted to take food from there i havent had the chance to sit down at lunch for really long so it was very very pleasant.
today was just supposed to be the collection of tables and chairs but it turns out we had to start preparing for the matric booth much much earlier so today we managed to finish up most of the main foundation decor work now its on to the details and the rest of the setup process its going to be exciting been working hard on this small lil project i hope it all comes together nicely this year seems much bigger than the previous year every club and society is really pulling out all the stops to make this event look good very aptly another race is also starting the 95th tour de france so in our own little way we're climbing up our own little alp' de huez's and decending our own mount ventoux's but it'll be one hell of a ride.

mango with milk shaved ice & ice cream ice monster 180 Bencoolen Street
officially the best shaved ice mango ive eaten there isnt too much ice the mango is pre chilled there's enough milk to make it creamy and the ice cream is not too sweet havent had it for about a year though but still just as good i wanna go back and try their durian with mango.
just got back from desaru it was an insanely hot day i carried my water bag today so that made for five litres of water that i was carrying on me not really used to carrying load on my road bike that really put plenty of strain on my back the heat today was a bit crazy i was really feeling the burn today i came back today feeling dehydrated gonna throw back like a gallon of water tonight i need to rehydrate tomorrow is another long day in the saddle with filming going on i need to have a clear mind oh well i better get some work done and go to sleep dont know if i can make it for training tom really tired.
after moving and fixing for about a week the house is almost just about but not really done at least the living room is all sorted out but we still have no tv because incredibly scv doesnt run cable here we have to pay to get them to install genius right but thats ok i dont watch much tv anyway the room you see in the photo is the living room i dont know how we did it but finally everything is in its proper place in the cupboards moving is nostalgic it lets you dig up old stuff that you havent seen in years and you wondered why you never threw some stuff away and you wonder why you didnt take better care of other stuff oh well glad its almost just about but not really over.
its been a month and i'm happier than i've been in a long time we've had our ups and downs and our fair share of misunderstandings but its been wonderful all the time and i really hope that i am what you want because you are to me. so here's to us, (i'm purposely not finishing this sentence)
another biking tshirt this was the design we talked about tonight at meeting it didnt really occur to me then but when i finished i thought it looked like one of those "singapore is a fine city" tshirts. which cynthia happily pointed out to me also. oh well, time to be more decisive lah we have like tons of options at least we're steadily accumulating i suppose we might shortlist some of the better ones ourselves first then we open to the floor for more comments and ideas? not sure whats gonna happen so im just gonna keep contributing to the ever growing pool.
giant's 09 tcr advanced sl the ones we've been seeing highroad race is finally available to us mortals it features a square downtube much like cervelo's R3 i really think giant have outdone themselves this time they've taken some very nice features from some purebred racing machines such as the downtube, the press cup bottom bracket and the tapered integrated headtube flared top tube to make this one hell of a stiff ride this model seems to have the new mechanical dura-ace fitted on the new crankset looks super fierce on this steed im looking forward to check out and grope the new shifters they look freakin awesome
you've only been gone for three plus hours and i already feel like im short of something like there's something not done like i haven't said goodnight like i haven't talked about my day like im just going to bed without words plus just after you scared me to death today when you told me what happened with that i realise that the next few days arent going to be easy and that it must've been crazy for you to wait for me when i went to thailand and now i can't imagine going away for two weeks can i bring you along? just like how im wishin i could fit in ur suitcase but i really hope you have fun you finally have that holiday you wanted! have a blast i'll be right here. with much forced patience.
finally moved into my new place first night spent in the new house i must admit i cant believe im here after that long and tedious process of moving everything but its all still not over oh, useless trivia time this place used to be a red light in fact, there're still plenty of lupsup places here and desker road is down the street oh well, should be fun and i can take plenty of pictures around here.
this was one of the many food places around my new house you really wont be afraid to not be able to find food around here i've already found two 24hr establishments and this was some of the best porridge dishes i've eaten maybe it was cuz i was hungry from a day at the house i loved the sauce they gave with it it wasnt salty and it tasted like chicken essence mom was convinced some special ingredient was involved anyway, the quality was consistent and high nice haybeehiam also.
my new street. its going to be a new life a new start here more nooks and crannies to explore more good food to sample finally im out of the ulu part of singapore and into a more central place so i dont have to ride so freakin far just to meet up with people i move tomorrow. who knows whats nice to eat in the Jln Besar area?
