" Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now." - Goethe, Johann Wolfgang

The next move...
Finally, July has come and I finished watching Ice Adonis Korean drama. Omg the ending 10 episodes still so epic where the antagonist even use protagonist's long lost child as a bargaining chip to gain back her crimes' evidences. Well in the end the antagonist is because of bad childhood which resulted her twisted self. It is the protagonist that release her from such pain. Children are like glass, fragile and take shape of parents.
Sideline, close friend even got lost in the woods in Cambodia. Need to really manage the risk and make sure thing will be fine and not so dangerous.
I have decided to go Iceland for backpacking in Feb 2015. Probably after ice climbing? Then to Sweden, Denmark, Norway. To catch northern lights!
Now need to get my sideline up so i be good for the transition. Need to start planning for the trek in direction to SG50 and 51. Need to scale a mountain of 7000m at least soon!
But first need to tidy house, get my new HOME PC, practice guitar for SBP, & ask her the Q! :)

Truly overspent for my india trip. The 2x lens wonth 1.8k plus the miscellaneous gadget such as solar panel almost 400sgd. 2.6k sgd outstanding... and guess what I was on 5 days npl so about 500sgd worth of salary gone already haha! To make matter worse, salary already late by 1 day!

India trip ending...
Post paragliding, vomit again! Thou tired but it was good. Took another vomitstop pill and felt better. Third time I think. But at least now stomach feels less bloated. But be from the fried stuff I ate yesterday.
Sending out postcards before headong to chopsticks restaurant for a honey ginger, shouldn't have order the noodle soup. But all cost only 150 rp which is only 3 dollars sgd. Now left with 500 rp and some 600 rp with chee hwa for $ pool.
Need to spend another 250 for climbing. Not sure they will come pick me and heng up. As no news. No way for contact too. Went walking alone to post my postcard, bookworm shop and then to chopsticks shop. Lol packed but no utensils. Well think it's good save less trash. One more dinner and lunch here before heading back to Delhi for flight home. Need to pack finished! Did my second laundry cost 90 for my 10 years plus fleece jacket as heng like spill whole bowl of momo soup onto me. Was piss but now better already.

India tmc starts!
Finally, after months of training and preparation, here I am in New Delhi waiting to go Manali in the night time. Wasn't having enough sleep since past few days as was packing like crazy. The extra mountaineering gears, sleeping stuffs, tents... weighted up to 30kg more.
Should have got out early at 630am to get some nice shoots rather than late 830am. Got harassed by mother who ask her child to beg from me, was trying to get panning but didn't realise was standing outside some protected area and got surrounded by huge Indians to tell me no photos should be taken. Then last one was a Indian cab uncle who ask whether I have time for 1 hour travel to market. Luckily, I didn't say yes. Walking alone indeed is precocious and need to exercise lots of vigilance!

Chamomile "oh kosong"... super downpour!
A week after ultra tuc 60K for myself. Definitely a stretch since I didn't train really specific to it but for tmc in May. Seems like pototoes chip helps haha! 10 hrs ran. From 10pm till ard 8am plus. I decided to stop as I was feeling sick of the run, and didn't know what damage was done to my wrecked knee. Thou my lungs can still take it, my legs wasn't.
Came to here for photography class but was cancelled last minute due to heavy downpour. I was almost reaching so I still continue on to walk in the rain. Cause I never been here before!
While on the train, read a nice share by Rainbow on being more productive in work smart not just hard.
MIT most important tasks, break into small manageable tasks, today vs someday tasks!
Later going movie first dinner later date with A! :) well the fate between people is really strange, unpredictable and so spontaneous! Whatever the outcome, we know each other will be great!
星期二, 4月 01, 2014
Did my first ultra. 60K in 10:10:10. Didn't want to continue the race even there's like 2 hours more I can go. As wasn't sure I want to go for more as knee is really aching like mad as not sure what damage will be done since I didn't trained enough for it.
As for the software, unfortunately I have to handover as I wasn't able to deliver on time as it drag too long. Well it was clear the tender out was a faster option as I'm just not gritty enough to do it. Too much distraction and it wasn't my priority.
Thou I fail again 3 times for side working I will not give up as this learning lesson is what I need!
A is really warm and initiate chat with me! Let's see how it all turns out eventually. Love is when it happen naturally! Well I have no comments as I haven't tasted it before really. But being neutral for so long changing seems good as I really aim that there is someone with me and we can grow old together.

Soon embarking on TMC in India! Being a Log/Admin IC still have the insurance not settle yet. Have been very hectic so far from training to music plus my unfinish tidying up of my personal space.
Really glad that one year on I met A via meetup. Thankful for her to took the courage to email me! Well she is really nice and sporty and I will jiayou! To be frank, this part of my life I feel pretty screw up. Am I too focus on my studies and work and family matters. Or just a shallow hal.... As always it's the priority in life we need to decide on.
Well, made another so call mistake on the purchase recently. Well 600 bucks for min 3 dates or more? I think I wasn't thinking anymore...
Indeed, need to start really curb my uncontrollable spending! First was the over insurance which cause me 5K and then was this! Plus my boots purchase. Need to change for a Ama Dablam down from Campers' well at least it was a colour and fitting S size for me!

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!
