All in all, i enjoyed myself tremendously althought my shoes were sooo darn dirty. but i guess that's the momento from the race!
Here's my results for the race. Thought i could have done better but it's still pretty decent considering, this is my first trail run and i was still recovering from a flu hence no prior training for it ): Oh yea, i bet some of the participants thought i was kinda retarded for carrying tissue in my pockets and blowing my nose while running. some even avoided me! Arse-os! i owned your asses alright!
ps: my shoe is now clean and white again! (:

Salomon X Trail 10k Race is this Sunday! and i bet my timing would be over an hour, down by LOADS. that sucks! and the last of the flu bug hasn't left me yet!
♥ running ♥ my asics! can't wait to get my ds trainers! kinda disappointed when my mum told me that the dealer ran out of my size and brought a size 8. but noooo size 8 is wayyy to biig! dang. gotta fork out more money because instead of a 40% discount from the dealer i'll have to settle with the 25% one when i get mine from queensway. this sucks ): Bought a Salomon XT Wings trail shoe though, after much self-convincing. haha. dang. 160 bucks! after a 30% discount. come on people i do accept cash/giro/cheque. gosh. there's something wrong with me, i'm on a sudden buying spree on shoes. next up, Asics DS Trainer 13, Asics Onisuka Tigers!!

so here's an update to what has been happening
i try to keep myself active on weekends, join runs/races and volunteer for races since i've been missing out on so much lately.
1. BAYBEATS 08!!!
okay I know that i'm a big fan of procastination and i'll finish editing the electrico and joy electric set asap!!!!
2. Weekly friday workout with the usual
3. Run for hope Singapore 10k (formerly known as the terry fox run but because TF run didn't allow any kind of sponsership they changed the name). Held at East Coast Park.
The Asics tee was awesommmmmeeee. it was proper dri-fit material and didn't give me any nipple abrasions yea don't laugh you!!! It was mr Lim Zheng Ping Eugene's brithday and he celebrated it by running this 10k. He's quite sad larh. All the friends that he invited all didn't come and join him in the end. So it was only me and himm. The run was fantastic!!
4. Sentosa outings
can't remember much on them. but i remember the most recent one which chris organised together with his TP cabin crew darlings. HAD A BLAST! haha actually not really la. sentosa is kinda boring now.
5. Weekly towning
6. Swimming with mr bangla aka eugene on weekends.
tsk. see how pathetic our lives are right now! in 2 months i can only count 6 things which i've done. okay to make me happier. these 6 things are spreaded out into many things. pfft. please stop consoling myself and get reallll. okay work is a drag!!! haha it has its moments - fun at times and also dull at times. up to the design office i go from the hangar. whoosh!

ages since i last posted! time has passed so quickly! submission of projects are long over and exams are waayyy over too! no more exams till UNI! YAY! spent the week prior to the exams mugging everyday at ourspace from morning till evening. freaking sian i tell you. well the last push for the final academic semester. hope i'll get good results to top the last acad sem.
so, as usual, post exam parties follows by closely. had a class gathering at chun's place. we bought the same amount of food that could feed the whole SE chalet for the first day. but no fear guys, we have many fat pigs that are capable enough to finish them. and indeed they all disappeared before dawn. met chuns, suele, eggy and the bangla at thompson plaza in the morning to get the stuffs. on the way there, coincidently i met leo who was heading to thompson plaza too, to meet tania. marinated the stuff with random concoxtions of herbs and stuff like the way we usual do it but chuns didnt have oyster sause!!! what a spoiler. had to make do with whatever then. overall, everyone had a hell of a time. this would be the last gathering before we all break and go on with our individual postings.
so 1 week has passed rather quickly and as of 1 sept i'm going to start my attachment at eurocopter! this week was rather busy with sentosa, fishing etc.
ps: sorry for the poor sentence structure, writing this before i turn in

Had an eventful past week, completed modelling the darn bombadier NLG part. As of today, i've completed most of the analysis and have decided to take the day off. But great news! Eurocopter replied on friday and my course manager said i might get in! haha!
Friday was the day the placement of IAP companies were out. A hilarious event indeed! Got into jet aviation though which wasn't my first choice. Friday was our group's "exercise" day again. While the rest went to swim, i went to gym with kheng kheng, followed by a short intense campus jog with chuns, ending with swimming with the rest of the guys.
Saturday was ubin "clean up" day. met some of the guys for changi v's nasi lemak and met up with the rest of the class to go to ubin. As pictures say a thousand words, they are up on my facebook, here & here!
okay okay enough rubbish from me. picture was taken at the bus stop near pasir ris mrt with a compact ixus 50.

Found this pic in "My Received Files" folder which leo sent over a couple of months ago. Used his camera ( Nikon d100) to take some photos. I think the composition of this picture is kinda messy. But haaay! i like that big withered tree in the foreground in contrast to the trees behind. To me, it represents a transition on how these mangrove plants wither off (not that i hope that they'll all just wither and die but yea.) We were blessed with wonderful weather and a nice cloud formations.
Happy times indeed! as compared to what we're experiencing right now - projects, projects and more projects and of course, the Design and Development of Aero-components and Processes (DDACP) projects are the killer. Spending hours after hours in the lab running analysis and not seeing the transition of day to night ain't fun! Picture was taken at the start of April before the guys enlisted and we all were as carefree as the wiiinnnnnnndddddddd. Spent the day cycling around ubin and getting lost! oh i miss the coconuts!
Now? they're in the army (it might be a good thing- so we have time to do our projs), cw is going to the states and we're stuck back in school. But heey! school's fun! how ironic.
So now i'll leave you with the pic to ponder. This is one of our last natural coastal/mangrove habitat in the cosmopolitan city of Singapore - conserve it.
PS: please don't look at the picture at large. view small. its kinda horrible when it is blown up. :(

nahhh. thats not my workspace. Not to sound geeky or anything but that's my dream workspace indeed. Check out those Macs! and the amazing view out of the window. What i'm getting now is a sky and an opposite block of buildings.
