Back in action

Went for a run last night, and yay, my leg has recovered, looking forward to more frequent runs soon.

Anyway, it was an eventful weekend as i made a trip to Malaysia, walk walk look look, but actually most of the time was spent sleeping in the bus, hahahaha.

Took some pictures, but first, here's what i did on a boring saturday morning.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Up right, i can cook lor, better than most girls, HAHAHAHA

Photobucket

Enjoying my food, with some snooker.

Photobucket

Then my uncle came to pick me up, since we had to depart early in the morning, so it was more convenient to stay over at his place for the night. No prize for guessing what i did then.

Photobucket

It was mostly all farms.

Photobucket

The herbal farm, with all kinds of herbs.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Don't know whether this is in english, malay, or some other language using english alphabets. It seems to be more appropriate to be used for pills rather than grass.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Then we went to the fruit farm, and omg delighted to see this.

Photobucket

SOOOO tempted to kill them and eat.

Photobucket

Dragon fruit
Photobucket

Passion fruit
Photobucket

Obvious
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

They have a small mini farm too.
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

This is damn eerie.
Photobucket

Then we had our dinner at this leng qi jiu lou. like WTF signboard is this. Next time i should call my restaurant Desmond clean restoran. WTF
Photobucket

After the not so nice dinner, we took a boat out into kampung area for the main event of the trip. At first you couldn't see anything, but once we went into darker areas where there's no light, then you could see those twinkling fireflies on the trees, quite pretty. It's like a decorated christmas tree. One of them still flew onto my hand, so i got to see it up close, but in the end some retarded child snatch it away, and i guess that's the end of it's life.

Took a video, but could like only see 3 4seconds of it in the entire minute video. Wasted. After that it was a long trip back, with all the jam at the customs and everything, home only at 1am, and carried on to finish iswak.

Now to the 2nd series.

Wrong decision #2

Haizzz again, missed another opportunity to go cruise and sleep. At the time of booking, was contemplating whether i should go watch air supply, and hesitated even when i knew deep down i didn't feel like watching, since i just like went to the concert last year.

Worst of all, mahjong is like cancelled, and now i'm stuck alone at home, with nothing to do.

DAMNNN

Jun. 6th, 2009

闷死了!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally after many months, i've reached the point where i can complain bored 24/7(or maybe its just the freaking shit weather).

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG DAMN BLOODY HOT AND PISSEDDDD.

On hindsight i should have followed my mother to cruise tomorrow. At least if i didn't want to gamble i could just enjoy the sea breeze and the local delights in Penang. Then again, the group of people going, just makes me wanna stay at home.

Since i was so bored, i browsed through and decided to watch the jacky cheung concert which i "bought".WAH HIGHNESS, can't wait for him to go for another around the world tour, the ticket was worth every penny.

Think i've rested enough, time to resume running, runNUS or something like that coming in august. 12km. $20+++. Ridiculous, i must well go join another marathon, cheaper per km HAHAHA

Oh well, back to racking my brain.

May. 31st, 2009

Adidas Sundown Marathon 2009 - My race

Whatever i felt during the race, disappeared when i crossed the finishing line. After all, this is 42click we are talking about. Same race, same route, but a different story, maybe that's what keeps people going back to run a marathon.

Slightly late since we missed the bus to changi village, so by the time we left our bags and stretched, i think the pros already reached the 5th or 6th mark. HAHAHA

Walk abit, talk abit, catch up with wilfred and then we started to run. Since we already decided beforehand to run at our own pace, we seperated soon after, and after completing that long changi coastal stretch, which felt so bloody long, i finally reached ECP. I took my first drink at the 14km mark, partly because i already couldn't take it, i think i was probably at the 2hr mark already, and i never did run so long during my 2 week training stint, not bad i guess.

Since i couldn't run til the 21st mark, which i set out to do, so i walked and run instead, intending only to stop and stretch after that.

THEN at the 19km mark, something happened. I ran past, or rather walked past the row of bars, AND OMG I HAD A CRAVING FOR BEER. How i wished a glass of cold beer could just drop from the sky into my hands.

When i reached the 21 mark, wah damn happy, crossed the bridge and sat down and stretched for awhile. Then continue to simei area, where we reached darren house. The freaking crests and troughs, omg, just felt like taking cab and going home. When i reached bedok reservoir, walked all the sandy area, and ran when i was on concrete, TACICAL HAHAHA.

It was pretty flat road all the way from there, so yeah ran when there was ample space, and walked when it was pretty squeezy. Saw a pretty hot volunteer standing in the middle of the road with a lightstick to direct traffic. Wah even though she's a marshaller, she's my best motivator man. HAHAHAHA

32km, drank some water and i think i saw jes. It was 5, and didn't think i could finish before sunrise already, so yeah tried to make up for lost time and ran, but the last 3km was unbearable. Suddenly couldn't even walk, so had to like crawl to the finishing line. Clock reads 7'05'13 something when i crossed the finishing line, some improvement.

Training method was wrong, so all that would be taken into account when i attempt it again next year. For now though don't ask me to do anything that requires the movement of my legs.

May. 30th, 2009

It's coming...

It just rained, which means it'll be pretty cool tonight, it'll take some time to getting warmed up. A little nervous, not that i've never done it before, but it's still a daunting task.

I already planned my battle suit, it was supposed to be a red fbt singlet with black adidas shorts. THEN I REALISED MY BIB DON'T HAVE THE NAME STEVEN GERRARD. WALAOOOOOO STILL QUITE PISS OFF.

Looks like i have a -10% on motivation already.

Oh well hope i have a safe and fun run. GOGOGOGOGO

May. 29th, 2009

funn

I didn't know training for marathon could be so much fun. I started only like a week ago(yes yes i know abit late), but better late than never right? As i have always mentioned, what's the point of a marathon if you train for it? It'll be no kick! HAHAHAHA

Anyway, i had never ran so frequently, once every 2 days, ever since like what, secondary school?? You must be wondering whatever happened in NS, well nothing. HAHA

Like every other things in life, the first step was the hardest, the inertia was pretty strong, what with the crap weather and lack of discipline. BUT, once i started going, there was no stopping, my way of doing things. At first was pretty bad, since i'm like always not moving at home, but then as time goes could feel myself improving, running longer, running further.

There was a week where i went to my parent's friend chalet, freaking tired. It was like a triathlon, first went bowling, then went running, then i went to play snooker. Then the next day went bowling, running, swimming. Total shagness, didn't even had time to eat the bbq, just sleep through.

Then this tuesday, the weather was omfg shit hot. I went out, ran, and almost died. SOOOO humid, and there was no wind, it was like the whole world stop revolving. I felt myself overheating, on the brink of heat stroke already, but luckily got through it, and now i can run in any condition after that ordeal.

Saturday's coming, and hopefully i can finish it before the sun rise, and my knee doesn't give me any problem after that.

Something else to add, it was bloody enjoyable watching barcelona trounce manc. HAHAHAHA. Newsflash, the home office has issued a flood warning in liverpool as 45000 scousers piss themselves laughing. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

May. 25th, 2009

Sami - you'll be missed.

The final game of the season, a game where you could say results didn't matter. Sami Hyypia's final game for liverpool.

A decade of excellence, was it really that long? When he came on i almost cried, especially when stevie took off his armband and put it on for him. Thanks for all the memories, a fucking legend. I hope to see you back to teach those youngster soon.

OHH SAMI SAMI...SAMI SAMI SAMI SAMI SAMI HYYPIA

May. 15th, 2009

Busy busy busy.

Only in my context though. Journey called life has arrived, so its time to watch, but i can't bear to finish it, because after that i have nothing else to watch!

THEN i have to bloody convince myself to go and run, because sundown is approaching. OMG i am seriously doubting whether i am able to complete the race, after recalling the excruciating pain and agony i put myself through after last year's race. I have a feeling, i'll be slower this year HAHAHA.

NEXT hmm what else, oh i'm busy with deciding who shall be the winner.

LF -
Hamann captains the team in a 4-4-2 lineup. We've got powerful powerful wings with Zenden/Bjornbye and Macca/Riise, a world class midfield of Hamann/Mascherano and superpower forward line in Robbie/Keegan.

Manager: John McKenna


Sander Westerveld

John-Arne Riise Dominic Matteo Tommy Lucas Stig-Inge Bjornbye


Steve McManaman Didi Hamann Javier Mascherano Boudewijn Zenden

Kevin Keegan

Robbie Fowler

Sarge -
Hansen captains in a classic 4-4-2. Quick fast pass and move from a footballing side with massive workrate and quality that can handle themselves in a fight, built on the platform of a rock-solid centre-back pair.

Subs: Tommy Younger, Cyril Done, Alun Evans, Djibril Cissé.
Manager: Joe Fagan

Peter Crouch Sam Raybould

Michael Thomas

Ray Kennedy Ray Houghton

Ronnie Whelan

Avi Cohen Alan Hansen (C) Mark Wright Steve Harkness

Chris Kirkland

Basically scratching my head over this cup match on RAWK. Wonderful thread this, unfortunately very time consuming, maybe i'll finish looking through it over the weekend.

WHAT ELSE? Ohh the usual i need my 12 hours of sleep a day, and needs to train up as a professional left 4 dead player. HAHAHA

SOOOOOO BUSYYY.

I'm bloody bloated now btw after spamming xlb at crystal jade, omgg....

Apr. 29th, 2009

DUIII.. *warning bloody long post*

Long awaited post finally, decided to write about my euro trip before i forget about it, then again, how could i ever forget?

The flight there was quite comfortable, KLM was pretty impressive, a lot of legspace, probably to cater to the european builds. Yup, was freaking excited on the plane, because keep getting calls from my father. "Aurelio free kick damn nice. 3-1" Then when i was about to switch off my phone, another call. "Man utd kena own, 4-1" HAHA damn high and i remembered shouting in the plane.

After all the adrenaline rush, i grew tired before the plane even took off, so when i woke up, tadah we're up few thousand feet. can't remember what movie i watched on the plane. OHH Quantum of solace, which i dozed off halfway, and decided to not continue altogether.

12 hours later.

I woke up and plane was beginning the landing procedure. That was a pretty easy ride, sleeping all the way. Collected my luggage, and realised they damaged it, damn cui, so went to ask for a report to claim from the insurance agency.

Photobucket

Not going to post the whole album out(700 over siao arh), just handpick a few so that this post won't be that boring.

Photobucket

So here we are, outside the airport, waiting for my uncle to finish smoking his cigarette. It was 530am only, so pretty cooling, bought our train tickets to Dordrecht, where his father resides in, 14 euro per person, just to go home, pretty expensive.

After the 1 and a half hour train ride, we finally reached dordrecht, and with all the luggage, we took a cab back to his home, even though it was like 10 mins walk away. Meter started, 6.50 euro, holy shit. Oh well but can't be helped. Finally, home sweet home, for my uncle that is.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

After resting and unpacking my stuff, we decided to go watch football! Before that we went to visit his brother, who owns a pub by the harbour, a small one though, just for the yachts.

Photobucket

beer in the morning! Why not?

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Then off we go to the game.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Next few days was spent walking around dordrecht town, and then going to Amsterdam, a pity that i wasn't brought to any sight seeing spot though.

Photobucket

This is the ROM there, massive structure.

Photobucket

The docks around the town, didn't realise that the country depends alot on the sea, many docks and many ships around. Those who grew up without much qualification usually go on to become sailors, quite a carefree life i must say.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

You can see what i do most of the time :)

Some pictures from the infamous Amsterdam. Coincidentally, the day we made our journey there was matchday, Ajax Vs Marseille, Euro Cup, which Ajax eventually lost. It was like sort of a prelude to the liverpool trip. The whole place was absolutely buzzing, you could feel the excitement and tension. Many ajax and marseille supporters fill the streets, watched over by the many policemen on duty.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

After that we went for dinner, sort of a restaurant by the dock, overlooking the sea. They mainly serve fish, from the fishing boats, so guaranteed fresh.

Photobucket

No doubt the best picture of my whole holland trip. So pretty.

Photobucket


The days were pretty routine basically. Maybe that's why i slim down HAHAHA. I really did ok, some people just don't believe me. If not, the only other possible reason is that beer has a slimming effect. A typical day involves:

7am- That's the time i wake up everyday, without fail without alarm. IMPRESSIVE RIGHT? Down to the living room, to make myself a cup of tea.

8am- BBC news is on, before that has to let grandpa watch his dutch news, in dutch of course. Meanwhile grandpa cooks 1 boiled egg for us everyday, which i usually eat together with bread. After a week though i stopped eating bread, just the egg was enough.

9 to 12noon- Back up to my room, play psp, listen music, sleep, etc etc.

12 noon to 5- Usually we go out, town, pubs, amateur soccer.

5 to 7pm- We'll be back for dinner, and grandpa usually cooks for us. Whatever he cooks, we eat, but he's quite a good cook, grilled chicken, grilled horse meat, macaroni(yes i know i know, no choice ma eat lor experience the dutch life).

7pm to 9pm- Usually i'll be in my room after taking a bathe, but occasionally i'll be down in the living room watching tv(most of the time football), or having another cup of tea.

9pm to ?? - The sleeping time varies, sometimes i play game til 12, sometimes i play til 10+, but still everyday i get to wake up 7am. It's natural air conditioned at night, so it's good in a way, but my skin started to crack a few days later, so no choice had to put moisturiser, so ma fan.

The next few days would be different though, I'M GOING TO LIVERPOOL. We had to leave home early cause the flight was at light 0845, so we left home at around 5+.

Photobucket

Captured the sun rising while i was on a train. This promises to be a great day. At the airport we had our breakfast, guess how much this cost?

Photobucket

$20. -.-. You know i'm not a sandwich person, but $20, choke to death also must swallow it down.

Photobucket

Photobucket

You cannot imagine how i felt while i was walking all the way out from the plane to the airport. Practically beaming all the way, i won't blame them if they thought i was retarded. Auntie june, one of my aunt good friends came to fetch us to the hotel, very nice of her.

4 star hotel, Rabison sas hotel, the room wasn't ready when we reached, so we went for a walk, but anyway, here it is, business class.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Went for lunch, and so was searching for this particular cafe. I was like thinking "wtf is it?" and realise i was standing next to it HAHAHA. Jamie's sports cafe.

Photobucket

Look at the number of tvs, you'll have trouble deciding which one to watch.

Photobucket

After a very large pizza, and a couple of pints to go with it, we went SHOPPING! No prize for guessing which shop i went into.

Photobucket

Decided to go for something unique, some of the clothes where you cannot find in singapore, so yup and got myself a poster, which is now proudly hung up on my wall.

Photobucket

The royal liver building, whatever it means. A freaking bloody big building, with of course the liver bird on top of it.

Auntie june and uncle colin then brought us to dinner at a chinese restaurant, managed by hong kongers. All speaking cantonese, but unfortunately i'm still not proficient in it yet. Nvm, at the rate i'm watching i'll pick it up in no time, the next time i go there i'll definitely be able to speak to them in cantonese.

We then went to the bar that uncle colin frequents, and they were having a farewell party for the bar owner, who just sold it and is migrating to Australia, so naturally the theme was Aussie wear. Then we have people coming into the bar in billabong beachwear(it's freezing outside btw), a man dressed in foster beer can, an aborigine(wonder how he did that), and one in cricket gear.

Photobucket

Had like 2 2 pints of beer, which made it 4, and the speed at which they were drinking, omg. I was already damn bloated from the dinner, so couldn't take it already, so i stopped.

Had a nice hot bathe in the hotel, it's so much better compared to grandpa's house in holland. In holland i have to warm the floor before stepping into the shower room, so ya can't be compared since this is a hotel.

Lying on the bed, HOW COULD I SLEEP WHEN I'M GOING TO ANFIELD THE NEXT DAY????!! Besides, Chelsea and Man Utd lost their match. WHAT A DEFINING MOMENT. Excited and high til i fell asleep, and woke up at 6. Talk to whoever who was online through my psp, and prepare to go for breakfast then to anfield.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Bad neighbours. HAHA

Photobucket

Had some beer at the pub, it was already quite crowded, and it was only like 11am. Yes the match starts at 4pm. LOLL I went back to the pub again at 330, and look at the difference now.

Photobucket

A pity that my uncle didn't want to come in, the atmosphere was very good, they were singing songs and everything, and i can't possibly leave him standing outside, so i had no choice but to drag myself out of the pub.

The day finally came, where i stood in front of The Shankly Gates.

Photobucket

This is some of the stuff that i always dream about, and to finally be there and see it personally. Looking back, it was so surreal that i couldn't really believe it, that i'm finally there.

So we entered the turnstille, and i, enter Anfield for the first time in my life.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Took a picture of them training, and guess who i got?

Photobucket

FERNANDO TORRES LIVERPOOL NO.9!

Photobucket

The kop in full swing. I hope to sit and sing with them one day.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Match started and the camera goes into the pocket, but couldn't resist taking it out. HAHA

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

After the game, we walked all the way back to our hotel, yes walked. Took us around 1hour ++, and we had dinner at the chinese restaurant again. The next morning we went for the stadium tour, which i booked on the internet about a few weeks ago.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

The famous "this is anfield" sign. To touch it like how all the liverpool legends and players have done in the past, omg it just sends a shiver down my spine.

Man of the match today Desmond Goh
Photobucket

The mirror torres and gerrard uses before entering the field. OMGGGGGG I WANT TO STEALLL IT
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

And so, i left Liverpool, reluctantly, but i took a load of memories with me, which i'll never forget, just thinking about it gives me the shivers. Well 1 picture to sum it up.

Photobucket

Grandpa was happy we were back to accompany him, so he cooked my favourite dish again, horse meat!

Photobucket

Most of the after my liverpool trip was spend doing, or rather playing this.

Photobucket

And this.
Photobucket

We met my uncle nephew, i think that makes him my cousin at the pub, so we went drinking, til the extent that i got damn high and seh from beer OMG

Photobucket

Photobucket

I liked how the foam of the beer stick to the glass to create a unique pattern on the glass, quite nice.

Photobucket

Walking around town and i saw this LOL
Photobucket

The cheese is omg disgusting.
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Pretty? Look how cheap it is to satisfy your gf in europe. I wouldn't mind lor seriously. 5 euro omg.

It was a rainy week, and we didn't manage to go out often, only this 1 time where we went for the boat tour.

Photobucket

Lunch on the boat.
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Does this building look familiar to you? It's the one jackie chan scaled down on his police story movie.

And so i completed my game too.
Photobucket

Photobucket

We then went to my last amateur soccer game before we leave for home. It was quite funny, only heard of players walking out of the game AKA Thailand. In this particular match, the referee was insulted for giving controversial decision, so he blew for the final whistle at 60mins and steal the ball and walk into the dressing room LOL.

My lunch during the game, WITH PEANUT BUTTER SAUCE HAHAHA
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Ain't she cute? Western babies are damn cute, don't know why.

That concludes my short europe trip. Freaking long until i'm seeing stars now. Oh the plane back was exceptionally long. Maybe because i'm returning home, so it feels longer. Anyway i got the window seat so yeah, super nice. Stare at the stars until i fell asleep. A shame i couldn't capture it on the camera.

Well europe, this certainly won't be the last you'll see of me. I'll definitely be visiting Anfield again. AND AND STONEHENGE ANYONE??

OH AND BTW, DUI MEANS BYEE IN DUTCH

Apr. 27th, 2009

Reminiscing...

Chatting and reading some of my earlier posts, hmm, what should i say? I cannot believe some of the nonsense i type, so yup quite surprising by how much my opinions, ideas, thinking has changed over a short 5 years period.

Next few days i'll probably repost them here, haha those days...

On second thought, i better post my europe trip first yeah?
