Back to Gym!

Back to Gym!

These 2 weeks had not been going back to gym as I had lots of time to go to the gym in camp. Haa...

So after ICT, I started to go back and do my fav combat and pump. Even though the new release for both was out for sometime, I had only done it like once or twice only. Haa...

For the past sat and sun, had been to both classes, 2 times each. Now feeling the strain on my muscles, aching... Hee... Feeling a bit retard during combat as well, the usual, always confused between right and left. Haa....

Time to go back to my normal gym routine and of course my running routine as well. Yes! I had been running! Haa...

Cheer Chen Qi Zhen: A Piece Of Summer Concert

Cheer Chen Qi Zhen: A Piece Of Summer Concert

I know who she is but not really a fan of hers. I only know a few of her songs. Have to say that this is the first time that I attend a concert without doing any actual "homework". Haa....

She had been in Singapore for concert a few times. Always hear quite good reviews of her concert. That is y I decided to give it a try, together with a few frens. I expected her concert I expected to be a slow and quiet one where my bum is expected to be on the chair for the whole period. I was so wrong about that. Haa....

First thing, the concert was downside and was seated somewhere that I was not expected. I was supposed to sit on the tier seats but ended up on the raised platform. Yes nearer to the stage but they can at least inform the affected ticket holders 1st.

The concert started off with jz her and her guitar. Good start huh? Haa.... After every song, she will change to another location of the stage and at the same time, introduce a new instrument, until the whole band appears on stage. At this point of time, everyone still calm and sitting down enjoying her and her songs.

The only thing is, behind us sitting, is her fans, one of the guys even crazy about her (I think) where he shouted "I love you" to her when the whole hall was quiet. He sings to her every songs, we like got a backup singer behind us. Haa...

At the 2nd half of the concert, all hell let loose, she decided to turn into a rock chick (Hmm... I never know she got fast songs.) Most of the people in the front stood up and waving their light sticks as well! However I stayed seated then. Haa... I only stood up when everyone in front of me stood up. Some of them even stood on the chairs!

She got 4 encores, keep leaving and coming back to the stage with 1 more song to go. Haa... Very funny to see people leave and run back again!

Overall, the concert is good. Her voice is very good. No back up singers or any dancer. Not a lot of talking as well. I like! I ended up buying her 2CD+DVD set to go home and slowly enjoy her songs! Hee...

Oh yes, I also ended up standing up on the chair by the end of her concert. Haa... Come to think of it, how many times I can stand on a chair during concert? Hmm....

Done with my 1st ICT

Done with my 1st ICT

Finally completed my ICT, a full 2 weeks! More like a holiday! Hee...

Caught up with most of the ex colleagues over tea breaks and lunches.

The same environment but with different people. Boring people! That place is like a dead town to me! OMG! I think the next time I go back, I would not have known the people there alr. Sigh....

Spent most of my time running, gymming and swimming. Me more tanned now but not thinner due to tea breaks and free lunches. Haa....

So going back to office soon to face the truth again! Hmm....

Happy Birthday HW!

Happy Birthday HW!

Today is my bro, HW's birthday! So Happy Birthday to you!

Met up with him over the weekend. It has been a long time since we last met. Had a nice chat with him and at the same time to pass him his birthday present!

Bought a cheeky t-shirt for him! Mr Well Hung huh? Not I say one but he used to, and still, claimed that himself! Haa.... Next time must force him to wear it! Haa....

Today is also Mid Autumn Festival. Since my parents are away in Shanghai, only left me, my sis and Oscar to look at the moon and eat mooncakes. Haa.... Having the whole house to ourselves! Haa....

3 Movies over the weekend!

3 Movies over the weekend!

Had not watch a movie for almost 2 weeks, I came back with a vengeance this weekend cos I watched 3 movies in 3 days! Haa....

First movie: I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry

A rather lame show. A bit of gay bashing as well. Talking about 2 fire buddies that have to get "married" so that one of them can get the welfare benefits for his kids. So now they have to prove to the whole world that they are gay and happily married as well. Well but it is a brainless movie to see after a week of hard work. Haa..... Overall, I give this movie 3 stars out of 5.

Second movie: Cheaters

Before decided to watch this movie, I tried to find the poster in the cinema trying to see if it is movie that is worth to watch. It seems that they forgot about the movie and I could not even find one poster in the whole cinema! Haa...

It turned out to be one of the better films I like! Haa.... Not because of the sexual content but how the plot unfolds itself! It is jz great!

The story line is simple where one married guy cheats on his wife and continues to have affairs outside with other gals. In turn his galfrens, also have affairs with other guys outside. His wife in turn also have an affair with his best fren. His best fren's brother is having affairs with his other galfrens as well. Complicated huh? It turns out that the guys and gals all seem to know each other! Finally that all meet up and know the truth and that scene was just funny! Haa...

Wonder if the movie have correct morals but the way the movie was shot in a rewinding back method brought an interesting approach.Overall, I give the movie 4 stars out of 5.

Third movie is No Reservation, which LLT wanna to watch. So we watched! Haa...

This is a straight forward romantic movie. A uptight, everything need to be prefect chef suddenly becomes a guardian for her niece and a new assistant chef was brought in during her absence. So many things she need to be in control of and in the end learns how to let go and enjoy the process. Fall in love with assistant chef (No surprise!), had a big argument, got back together and lived happily ever after.

The movie is a ok romantic comedy, does remind of the cartoon,Ratatouille, because of the food theme. Hee.... To me it is jz another romantic comedy. Overall, I give this movie 3 stars out of 5. Reason being, the acting not by the leads but by Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) is jz great! Hee...

Wow! So much for the reviews! I was amazed by myself for watching 3 movies in 3 days! Hee....

So what movie next? Hmm.....

SMRT Challenge 2007

SMRT Challenge 2007

For the 3rd time, I was in the same race again! Haa...

This time round the race started off in the rain, a wish came true for Pearlina. Haa...

We all started to run like crazy in the rain going to different places. Hmm.... most of the places are the same as last year huh? The organisers are getting lazier to think huh? Haa...

This year, we had to complete 8 stations in 6 hours! The clues are a bit "tough", or rather senseless cos there is a few we could not solved. Hee... The station tasks mostly brainless, however we gave up one at one of the stations, cos it is too difficult and time-consuming! Should have taken out that task at AMK station! We managed to even find one station without solving the clue. Haa....

So we run from central, to the north, to the east, to the west then back to east again cos my mistake in solving the clues! Hee...

We kena cheated at the last station when we thought that we have no chance for the top prize, the station master told us we still got chance if we rushed back. Hee... Cos we are slacking and intend to go back to the finishing point in a relax manner! Haa... So we rushed back in double time only to found out that we are the 19th team. Chey! Haa... Actually 17th team la cos 2 teams did not complete the race.

At least I am proud to say that we finished this race yet again! Haa... As the race got a merit and demerit point system going on, a team kept going around to bug each station masters to give them the merit points. Hmm.... This is time wasting and a bit silly right. Maybe the organisers should remove merit system next time and only have demerit system!

Had a fun time on the train with the rest of the gang and trying to dig out some gossips along the way as well, WE FAILED! Haa...

So tired after the race that we dun even bother to wait for the prize giving ceremony and we went off to reward ourselves a well-deserved dinner. Haa...

So gang, going to try it for the 4th time next year? Haa.....

I felt the earth shook!

I felt the earth shook!

Jz now, while I was waiting for my lecture to start, I felt the floor shaking and I was feeling giddy. Thought it was only me at first until my classmates also felt the same as well. Then we were thinking if we need to get out of the building a not. Hmm.....

It lasted for around 30 secs. I was thinking if it is really an earthquake, it must be a big one.

So now back home, saw the news of a 8.0 scale earthquake in Indonesia. Scary! So far yet still able to feel it. Hope that there will not be any injuries or death.

What an experience!

Night Safari

Night Safari

Spent a day at the Night Safari and it had been ages that I had been there. Haa....

The place was impressive! From the moment I stepped into the place until I walked out the place. I was fully impressed with the place! No wonder this place wonder the tourist attraction of the year so many times!

So what I did there? To see animals of cos. The tram ride was fun except it the stupid people that are with us in the same section kept using flash to take pics even though the guide repeatedly reminded them not to use flash. They should be dragged off by the lions!

So I got fed up, and got of the trial at the leopard trial. Saw a lot of different cats there like lion and tiger. Cool! All almost sleeping! Haa...

Then got back on the tram, continue with the tour. Then off for a short dinner break and off to watch the animal show. Haa... I was very careful in the seating as I was very wary of where they might hide some snakes (which they really did during the show). Then continue to walk the remaining trails and call it a night.

Saw a lot of animals int heir "night mode". Hee.... Most of them are eating, sleeping or standing there doing nothing. Haa...

Got in a little adventure as well, halfway through walking on the trail, suddenly i saw some paw prints on the walkway. Hmm.... Some animal got out into the "wild"?
Night Safari 2

Wow the print as is big as my foot. Y? Cos I am a Polarbear remember? Haa...
Night Safari 3

Hmm... wonder what animal was it? Haa....

It was nearly midnight by the end of the whole tour and boy, my legs are almost screaming for help, in other words, aching. Haa...

Got a special gift! A Polarbear! I loved it! Hee... Thank "YOU" for the gift!

Had so much fun at the Night Safari! Hmm... Maybe we can try the zoo soon ok! Hee...

Thank "YOU" for the special night out with me as well!

Well if you had been reading my blog, should know that I am talking about going for a holiday for the longest time.

So yesterday I went to a travel agency to pay for a trip, 8 days to Shanghai at end of this month.

Sigh.... The sad thing is, my butt will not be on that plane cos my parents will be the ones going instead. A trip partial sponsored by me! That is the reason y I am there to pay for it. Haa...

This means from now till end of this year, no overseas trip for me. Unless I tio 4D or TOTO. Hee...

As sudden as it happen, the mist was cleared in no time. Well, different people different views that caused the tiff to happen. Enough said.

Nothing much happen today, Work, Gym then Watch Movie!

Blood Brothers is what we watched.

It is basically a simple story of how a group of 3 "brothers" in 1930s, went to Shanghai thinking to make it big and earn more money. They got involved in the biggest gang at that time and different views caused them to drift apart.

I watched this movie solely for 2 people, Shu Qi and Daniel Wu. Haa... The story a bit straight forward and tends to get a bit boring at times as well. The ending is so John Woo (after all he is the producer for this film).

Overall I give this movie 2.5 stars out of 5.

Since now the weather is cleared now and the sun is out again. I m going to catch up with my sleep. *YAWN*

Arctic Tales: The PolarBear Story

Arctic Tales: The PolarBear Story

Got tickets to watch a preview of this movie. It is about the POLARBEARS, which is me right! Hee.... The movies goes like this: "In the frozen wilderness of the Arctic, each year an ancient cycle begins: a cycle of birth, death and rebirth, love and life, self-sacrifice and great danger. Two giants of the icy North Pole – Seela, the walrus and Nanu, the polar bear - start their magical journey, from birth to adolescence to maturity and parenthood in the frozen Arctic wilderness.
They are playful, mischievous, daring, calf and cub romp freely, eager for adventure, but nonetheless, both are extremely vulnerable.

Their mothers will stop at nothing in the battle to rear and protect their young. Freezing cold; starvation-level hunger; lethal threats from predators and the monumental, snowbound landscape itself - all are confronted and defeated in the spectacular life-or-death struggle for survival." (Extracted from

This is another environment awareness movie, talking about the shrinking Arctic and the changes that the weather and how the animals need to change and adapt to the changes. The shots are captured in the most realistic ways and could feel like I was in the Arctic. The narration of the film by Queen Latifah was humorous, which makes the movies less documentary like.

Overall, I give the movie 4 stars out of 5. Y? Cos I am a Polarbear. Haa...

Polarbear are the kings in the Arctic. They are at the top of the food chain. However, seems like to them, getting food is not the easy part at all. I think it is the same as human beings, being sort of top of the food chain, it seems like things are not always smooth going for us as well.

I am always amazed by all these animals like whale, killer whales, seals, and of cos the Polarbears. Would like to get close to them if possible. Haa....

Maybe I was a Polarbear myself in my last life. Haa....
