Thursdays are destined to be happy days [07 Oct 2005|12:47am]
After a long hiatus, I think I'm back. I've been vacillating between keeping an online journal presence to a more personal, private one. But then what the heck I'll just write whatever I want to and feel like, as long as I do not write any seditious stuff that will get myself arrested. By the way, I think SEDITIOUS is the most learnt word for most Singaporeans this year. Kudos to the government.

Now that the major milestone for my work is over, I am glad to have a little time to spare for my ECAs. I've really been wanting to upgrade myself, by learning something, by doing something. And then there's the ECA to worry about. Basically I am restless and I need to move on. There're tonnes and tonnes of things to do for the rest of my existence, and surely there are some things that I can start doing now. And I have to do something about the love life of mine.

So I made a few phone calls and hopefully, will be able to close that deal that has been bothering me for a while. One thing that I've learned from this sales process is that collecting payment can be a pain in the ass. It takes ages to chase the shops to receive their payment, and for some strange reason the bosses are always not around - like that how to do business?

Ended work early and rushed over to GWC to book tickets for the 40 Year Old Virgin. Twas a funny show alright, and I laughed more than I could. It was a nice way to end the evening, and got better when a friend passed a vcard I wanted to me. Life's interesting yeah; once in a while someone enters your life and makes you feel soooo revitalised once more. I'm not sure if the effect will persist but what the hell just enjoy the ride while it's happening, and dun hurt anyone in the process - that's important.

And of course, had an interesting conversation with the SMaster today as well; on love and relationship and blah blah. He kept telling me, "You have to take care of your pet like you're the owner.... " and it was only after a while that it dawned upon me the kind of relationship he has with his darling. Oh well, for me, I believe in the balance and equality of a relationship -- need both sides to constantly provide feedback and do their part to give and take to ensure a win-win situation. The moment either party feels that he's not getting his part of the bargain then it's the start to failure.

Ok ok I ramble and I know it. But at least it's ramblings straight from the brain. Unprocessed.
Night.

Migration? [12 Mar 2005|11:54am]
[ mood | cranky ]

After a week here at Livejournal I am tempted to move somewhere else.
Livejournal does not offer convenient picture posting capabilities which are freely offered by other blogs.

What difference does it make? [10 Mar 2005|11:11pm]
[ mood | discontent ]

Have you ever wondered, if, one day, you vanish from the very face of the earth, would it have mattered to any one around you, or make any significant difference?

During classes today, l realized that a certain member has been absent from classes for a number of days. The funny thing was that. no one else in the class really noticed his absence only until my discovery.

That made me think: How would my insignificant existence affect anyone? For a day? For a month? For a lifetime?

Somehow l hold this belief that time erodes everything; the joy and pain of a certain moment can easily be weathered by the sands of time. It will not be long before the winds of change shape and alter the mindscape. Ultimately, does it make a difference? Will the very existence of a single entity trigger an avalanche of any sort? And even if it does, what impact would it made in a million years from now?

I guess it made no difference pondering over this as well.

My work ended early today, giving me some time off to pay a visit to the swimming pool at SAFRA Mount Faber.




  • I liked the automated entry system though it confused me a little

  • The pool was really dirty! I saw many handiplasters on the pool floor. Yucky!

  • I did three sets of ten laps each, totalling 30 laps

  • Some bodybuilders were sun-tanning on one end of the pool.

  • For a moment, I actually got confused with my leg-strokes



I thought I saw someone familiar.

Virgin Entry [08 Mar 2005|10:37pm]
[ mood | crappy ]

And so I begin my virgin entry. There's nothing remarkable about today except my arduous workout at the gym. I hit my pectorals real hard today.



Warm ups
Horizontal bench flyes 8 x 40, 6 x 50, 6 x 50 (pecs were crying out at this juncture)
Smith machine bench pressies 10 x 40, 8 x 70, 6 x 70 (ouch!)
*alternating with bicep curls 10 x 15*
Smith machine close grip pressies 10 x 30, 10 x 40, 10 x 40
*alternating with bicep curls 10 x 15*
Incline pressies 10 x 30, 8 x 40, 8 x 40
Incline close grip pressies ???
Flyes 10 x 40, 10 x 50, 10 x 60
Decline pressies 10 x 35, 10 x 35, 10 x 35
*alternating with situps: 30, 40, 30*

I wonder if I am working too much? Time taken, 90minutes including warm ups.
Now for a good rest.
