I have been busy all week, but when someone asks me what I have been doing, I can’t seem to give a concrete answer to that. Well, I have given it some great thought (its summer, I have time) and come to the conclusion that my time has been spent on small, yet fulfilling activities.
We had diving training. The sole of one of my soccer boot came out and the coach lent me her boots! Training ended with everyone soaked in mud. Yimin had quite a big wound at her elbow, which, in my moments of subconsciousness touched it while telling her an exciting story. Sorry dear girl…
Tuesday- Volunteer work at Mount Alvernia Hospice.
Uraina and I began our first day. We had alot of fun. There was nothing much to do, but children are sure tiring. I was given a rather difficult kid to deal with. Nonetheless, I welcome challenges and I enjoyed observing the behavior of children.
Wednesday- Supposedly training.
Decided to skip training because I had rashes from the diving training on the field. I felt quite bad, but the rashes were really itchy. Well glad that it has gone down. I had good time to enjoy my book. Its a book on economic hitman (EHM, can’t believe they even have an acronym for this), jackals. The author of the book was an economic hitman from the US, sent to “plunder” and “rape” the developing and third world countries from their riches and resources. The book talked about the different regions and it seems like there were alot of involvement by the CIA. According to the book, coups were staged against presidents who did not favor policies which benefitted the US. Don’t know how true. Once again, there’s no black and white, but grey for the human race to argue around.
Went to catch Angels and Demons. It was a nice movie. I am sure individuals would enjoy the movie, if like me, due to poor memory or for whatever reason, forgot the content of the book. Reviews did mention that religious sensitive content were removed. In fact I read today in LIFE, that an actor in the movie said that the script was better than the book and that Dan Brown was a lousy writer. Hmmm. I think how he utilized facts and twisted them is amazing. Its a good book if read purely for the purpose of entertainment, not for knowledge enrichment.
Next, we went shopping. We had Carl’s Junior for lunch and KFC for dinner. All fast food.
I spend my morning trying to teach Huilan how to cycle. Unfortunately, time did not permit her mastering it and cycling out to bedok jetty as I had envision the day before. Oh well, I hope she master it soon and then we can go cycling at east coast soon. She did enjoy the swing at my house. A case of broken childhood I suspect. -Just kidding-
After that I went to buy a cake for one of my OCIP mates. We went to the box at SMU. I had no idea what “The Box” was initially. KP didn’t seemed surprised but I am sure he was bursting with happiness on the inside. RIGHT right RIGHT??
Next, we head down to timbre. And that was when I discovered where the Timbre near SMU was. It was really a day of enlightenment for me. I saw the light. The trail that led to T.I.M.B.R.E. We had a great time. It was a farewell for the 4 people who are going to Scandinavia. Correct me if I got the spelling wrong. Well only 2 turned up, Penny and Kheng Wee. I think what made my day was the discovery of the location of Timbre. Ok Lame.
Finally Today… Firstly, went down to church to print the name tags for the church camp (which I am not attending). Waited in the office for about an hour for my sister who was having a meeting. We headed to parkway after that. After 15 minutes of walking around, I received a call from my dear WANG ZHENGHUI. The dear girl is back from canada and is heading to cambodia like this saturday. She wanted to go jogging with me!
We went east coast and then jogged to TJC. It was a great catch up session and hopefully there would be more to come!
One of the major topics we talked about was “What is wrong with singaporean guys??” haha. I have to admit, I have no idea. Honestly, I rather stay single than marry someone who is too far off expectations.
Words of a single man, “I earn $1, I spend $1.” I think its applicable to single women in this egalitarian society of today.
This entire post was typed with a mac. WHICH IS SUPER DUPER SLOW. zzz… Even my sister had resorted to using her old laptop and I took the liberty of using it. The only reason why I am using it, is because I like the keyboard.
Do I look like the type of stupid, bitchy girls you use to date?? I don’t think so, because i ain’t that dumb to date you, nor believe the things that you say. Nonetheless I welcome all sort of drama in my life, its perhaps my only prevailing source of entertainment amidst the summer.
