3 in 1 weekend...
Finally, my last expressway course has ended! What a journey! GE1 was stressful as it was the first. VE was tough but I did a smart move to pick the song guan huai fang shi. PE I was a little ambitious and took yi ran shi peng you and backfire as it is an emo song. But we learnt. I learnt to try something you are very familiar on stage.
Managed to go IT show at mbs. Got onto a photograph course!
Urbanathlon will surely be last as too many people. I was late for class too. But the final splash was great!
PE performance was bad like GE1 my pitching for sing still lousy to max! Neex to work hard! Because of this opportunity cost I wasn't able to train with team and miss chance to meet our PM in non formal setting! What a chance miss!
Time to complete node.js before I go India TMC 2 months time. Need to work on my holiday vacation too. Calling J as well. Well she is a nice lady and I don't mind giving it a shot! Hope I'm not just desperate and genuinely want to know her more!
* Made the call last night after mir recovery training, well pick up I managed to arrange but later got rejected on wapp. At least I took that 20 sec of courage to try. Is okay and let's move on!

Yes, 22 days of Technical Mountaineering Course (TMC) at India is on its way!
Training is NUS for the past a month of so has been refreshing as a new environment to adapt and get to know new friends. Not a long time left and I'm arrowed to do administrative stuff. Well weird as I'm not a student there even to be started. But is okay. As mentioned it is depriving them from learning.
Back from dinner with Kili bros! Thanks for the treat! Next time I will do it.
Did the second round on-line purchase as I got the wrong carabiners size as need pear shaped one but is fine as now I have 3 spares. Still have more stuffs to buy such as sunglasses, go-pro, and going back to Beach road to get my traditional cheap and good items!
Need to hack my node.js within this 2 months as well!

OK she is very nice!
Indeed, it wasn't so scary after all. Although recognizing her and making sure I don't scare her was the main thing!
We had dinner at Tampopo as I thought the opposite Taka side will be noisy in the end, children at the restaurant was shouting on and off. But it was manageable. We sat from 7 till 930. Well and she let me sent her home was hope she felt comfortable with me. Well, she has really sweet smile which yes melt me haha. Okay the deal to go on more dates. Still kind of irritated by my hair issue.
Planning for a working visa! Age less than 35 still have chance! As most countries are most less than 30!

GE2 and At work...
Working has now become a chore. Time has reached I guess. Really get very pissed these days. To accept is not in my dictionary, I will try and fail and keep at it till I success.
Remember we are the average of the 5 people we meet each day! So be careful who we talk to and don't get influence the unuseful stuffs.
At work, interesting to see RAFAEL defence is the so focus and so ready for market. Should have leverage on company and got the airshow ticket.
GE2 is finally here and over. Survived and stretched. I thought I was only able to perform a song by two persons, thou I felt like leftover but this happen and it's ourself that is the most important.

Myanmar solo backpacking...
10D of solo wanderlusting ended wonderfully. Never expect anything but so much gain.
From day 1 to the last day, so much first time and out of comfort zone experience! Collecting race pack on day 1 was such an experience! Overly confidence had led me to being lost in foreign land. Luckily, got a local couple who was very helpful and gave me a free hitch ride! Else I wouldn't be able to collect my pack so smoothly.
Day 2 went back on a morning run and found my way with the help from the receptionist. Came back and went to downtown to get my train tickets. Had to pay more in kyats in order to buy tickets. Travel alone is really cool and can do anything. Did the circle line and even met a new friend from Sweden!
Day 3 race day! First half run with a local student from ISPE, second half got a chance to run with a very nice Japanese lady. But think she finds me creepy haha so no more contact via email I think. Well is okay. Then is the 20 hours train ride! So glad and thankful for the local for the help else I sure alight wrongly!
Day 4 reached kalaw and omg it's 1300m! Got to join the sam trekking and done!
Day 5 to 7 settle the 60k trek with 4 isrealis. Pristine trek! Hope tourists will try to preserve it.
Day 8 Nyuang Shwe. Solo 4 hours boat ride! I should pluck more courage to ask to take photo with lao ban niang. Night vip train back!
Day 9 shopping at yangon! Bought lots of self mini cards painting and time to come home! Even met a Singaporean who recommend me for a sunset! :)

My own livefitter story started since secondary school days where I was able to go camping, trekking, canoeing, basically anything under the sun literally.
Back then, I wasn't into running at all I had a hard time passing my SOC during my army days. During an overseas training, I torn my ACL and meniscus and had to be dropped out. It was a pretty depressing period for me. Not able to pass out as an officer. I berated myself. Gladly, my post operation recovery was doing good to return to almost 90%.
About 5 years later when i was in my final year in university , I decided to venture back to the nature where I went to scale Mount Kinabalu! My teenager dream fulfilled. It was this high altitude experience makes me feel how small we are to such majestic mountains. I was panting badly during the summit push. I just have to be stronger in order to savour what Nature has to offer. Thus, I started joining races and kept running.
Now I am so fortunate to train under Ben Swee, with fellow caring, supportive IMD/SICKOs every week whenever possible. Special thanks to Sarah for encouraging me in. Absolutely worth it! The camaderie forged is simply amazing!
Results? I was able to achieve 49 minutes in SBR/AHM 2013 10K, and 5:22 for SCMS 2013 42.195K so far!
Knee still hurts but just don't feel like stopping. Moving forward I wish to challenge myself to this sky high dream of sub 1:45 for a half marathon distance! Journey is all that matters and I will try my atmost effort in juggling all commitments and achieving it!

Cab frenzy weekend...
Friday, chiong cab to Myanmar embassy from work to collect visa. 10 bucks hidden charges... well can tell earlier... then took bus 36 and pass orchard road to east coast for my trial reformer pilates session. Pretty fun and not easy, cher also very pretty haha! Well but I sense the toughness in her despite her petite size and voice.
Then I chiong cab from there to guitar class on ecp. Even late by 30mins, she extend class till 930pm. End off with curly fries at mac.
When I got home, seriously deadbeat as usual but camp in front of mio tv to nua a bit. When I woke up the next sat morning I realised I missed the 1st live fitter workshop and collection. So last min impromptu chiong cab down to downtown east... omg west to east... but reach in time for last min q & a for sports nutrition.
Then I need to rush back to jurong to catch ride to go see abandoned dogs. They are big and strong! Great day as I was able to stay close to them and they even lick my face!
Sunday! Morning cab to punggol park for run 10k... lousy timing sub 1 but no pb as I was having stiches. Luckily, train was adequate fast so I reached home in time for shower and brunch before going to SEA Aquirium back and to on cab. Back to work, need to settle myanmar, nodejs hello world asap!

As usual start off feel like crap, FLS!
The feeling of getting out is really getting out of control recently. In any case, I better do more process approach then just eyeing on my goals without massive action. Also need to start logging down important learning from climbing previously so as to keep it fresh. And too the lesson learned each day.

New Year Eve... thou what abbr haha!
Well after two years of being overseas over this transition period, pretty normal I guess. Now at home comfortable, typing this. Well I must admit I do feel sad that I'm still alone single. Despite my action of signing up match making stuffs, still to no avail. I guess true love is really 可遇不可求。
At work managed to follow up with advises from my D which is to follow up on the telling SEs that I need more time to do the work and delays are inevitable and I should inform even earlier.
Well as mentioned, not going on major trip as going to 6500m and more will require more $ and time and strength which none come easy and seems mutually exclusive to each other.
Need to settle my Burma trip stuff, NodeJS... no more PHP... and tidy the house to be more minimal.
Signed another 2 races, run350 where 350 stands for the reduction in emission CO2, and Green Corridor. Passing Twilight as March 14 work isn't confirm yet.

Ok urbanathlon plus this! Pretty fun to play on the keyboard today. Want to watch mitty but doesn't see to have a good timing. Back home and tidy up and get my visa and trip planning done!
Being perfect means no story to tell! Time for failure resiliency! Found another chip at the edge of my baby A3R... well time heals will still try to get it retouch still.
Drop my A3R guitar... ouch got a chip at the headstock as I was trying to sling to the back and the loop came off. But again my aesthetic belief system immediately responded. But lucky everything else was fine.
Well at least now learn where to find more repair shop and accept it too. Next time will be more careful.

Xmas do nothing yet something
Slacking at home. But manage to at least start reviewing the guitar level 1 notes and have a better appreciation of it. Did laundry and some cleaning but still did have the time to do php and more tidy work. Come on and do it! Do a little everyday as I did. Don't expect to complete everything one shot.

Very cui! Super nervous. Finger plucking hard was trembling like mad! The verse plucking is really killing as well. Second part when coach sang for me i totally mind went blank to do a repeat chorus by repeating the half bar change chord and strum pattern! Really need to be like 2nd nature before one can perform normally!
Finally, I can indulge a little. No need to practice for awhile and run too. But in just couple of days 2013 is over. Still have a lot in mind but at least I'm not that disturb when someone don't reply me. Emotional freedom!
