I just have to get this on my blog, its just so.. real… I had a weird dream on friday, not like your average nightmare, but something worth marvelling about. Its a about meeting this girl by the name of Sherwin or Sherene or sort. I was enrolled in Singapore Poly, DME (diploma on mechcanical engineering), a possible option I would choose to further my studies instead of going overseas (expensive) later this year. I can faintly remember it was love at first sight, she was the kind I like english speaking/educated, pretty, cheerful, sporty type who just loves to spend time with her boyfriend, even during breaks & after class. Awww…… (I will just cut the details here)
What I know about dreams scientifically is that they are usually based on real life encounters for the day or so, or sort of a mental “recall”. However, I had not met anyone called Sherene or so from god knows when! The funny things in dreams is that I get to do things logically & make effective decisions, though I have no control over it, its like watch a movie without any play controls. Moreover, it the kind which just makes you ponder on the dream for awhile the moment you wake up, & like hey why did I choose that? Would I do that if I had the control or in real ife? Though there are exceptions & there are people who actually dream about the future & so, not to mention the ever popular deja-vu feeling you get from your dreams…
*sigh* I wonder when would I ever get to meet her again…
*jumps back to bed*
Enjoyed a leisure game of counter-strike source last week & man do online play do seem rather “uncompetitive” these days. Namely because of some overly powerful gun or superpower entities. For the eye candy here I am to share some of the rather interesting experiences, such as the invincible cupboards in de_prodigy & the power of the semi-auto sniper (aka piak piak/watergun) which kinda, obliterated 3/4 of the opposition team if used properly. Feast!
Whats a better way to start the new year with sweatin’ & healthy exercises. Its workout madness again, this time with circuit aerobic exercises Tuesday morning, followed by a 9km run in the evening. Ended the day today with 30x50m breaststrokes in the pool before having dinner with my family at hans restaurant. Now I feel “purified” from all those weekend oil & grease, not to mention new year goodies… Other than that, Fish & Co was on the tabs for dinner on last monday night where janan got $80 worth of coupons from his wits project. Cheers to janan, jason, james, john, neo & tanyi for the dinner. & yea, their Fish & cos always never fail to impress maybe I should bring my family to eat at one of the branches someday.
|Its slightly less than 1 week into 2004 and my mum is all ready putting on chinese new year decorations around the house, all red, I see. Well Chinese new year is around the corner too, very exciting wonder how much ang pao money will I get this year….
Breakfast was special, as intended we, as a family had tim sum, where? at bukit merah view hawker center, the store is quite popular with the people around there, though I should reco they serve a larger variety of tim sum, as they are definately lacking in some popular dishes such as shrimp puffs and “man tou” (pan fried golden buns). After that, besides gaming all my time away in front of the computer, got some good guitar practice today, few hours in the morning and later in the evening, finally getting my strumming up to some acceptable standards, playing with the E, D and A chords mostly.. *duh* Later around noon, went out to the nearby 162 family restaurant in BM for lunch. Shopped around the central thereafter for some gadgets like a mini fan for “luxuries” whenever I am outfield training and got some grocery chores done roughly within an hour before heading home.
And now, Its the same old boring phrase- BOOK IN To CAMP AGAIN….
Only that this time, theres no mid-week breather break like what we had the last 2 weeks (christmas and new year) DaRn!
On a note, it’s 2 1/2 weeks before I get my 3rd SGT rank, and the end of life as a army trainee too. Lots of stuff had happened so far on course, very interesting things I say, but very fun too. The instructors are very kind and professional. gd gd. I think I did miss out some thing that the course accomodation is indeed very nice and new, in fact better than what it was in unit.. *dreamz* With that, though sadly, I feel that I am currently under allot of pressure by my OC to get the best trainee position in course presently, well because he knew bout it too. Though I can tell that it is “undirected positive motivation” It just bugs me for him to tell that that he have “something waiting for me” when I return back to unit. Not to mention not wanting to disappoint what my unitmates and CSM have expected on me. Well, I am already trying my best!
Moreover, I hope that my achievements throughout the course won’t imply much of an offense to other trainees, esp those who long for best trainee position too. I had seen such “politics” going on in BMT before, but so far I had not seen such behavior here myself, partly everybody as commanders are definately more mature and thinking than those childish BMT bastards…
When I come to think about it, it came pretty much of a surprise too me too- The thought of best trainee actually didn’t even dawn to me (being such a slacker myself, through BMT and Sispec) till one of the course instructors told me of some finalisation they had made to so-called “pluck of the cream of the crop”… SHITZ!
Hope all goes well. I just gotta stop counting the chickens before they are hatched too. It not end of course yet and anything and anybody could take over my top spot… Mmm though, the title of best trainee does seems good too.. *grins*
Just gotta try my best… day by day
|Today will be unlike most of my usual saturdays. Namely able to actually get out of camp with energy to go to the driving center (Bukit Batok) for registration, shop and even spend the night out after a long hard shag week. And so there I was book(ed)-out, hailed a cab for a 6 bucks trip to BBDC (no bonuses, its not crazy taxi dudes), then theres registration, instant photos, briefing and stuff loads. (thought he chick at the cashier counter was cute) then it a walk to bukit gombak MRT for some lunch, didn’t find anything nice to eat there so took an MRT to westmall for lunch at the 4th level foodcourt.
Drop by cyberactive, Need for speed Underground is up at stores for a solid $49.90, would be waiting for the price to drop to around $44.90 before purchasing it. Otherwise, theres always the heeren card discount to bring that down (yea bout that too, I just recieved it.. yea!)
Damn, next tuesday would be a public holiday, Hari Haya Puasa. But not for me as theres camp guardduty up my ass. But luckily for me my CSM aka “ang chek” argeed to give us guard duty personnel a day off in the (very) near future. Would be looking forward to that. *grins*
And so there came the unexpected message from Lester this morning too, kinda last minute and almost got my schedule messed up for awhile. As it would be good to get together us sec sch friends again and catch up with times. In the end, managed to allocate for a 8.30pm meet at TB plaza after dinner with my fam at AV.
After trying out the GBA SP I loaned from my bunkmate over the weekend, still deciding whether to invest in a gameboy advanced SP, they can play quite afew3D games now, not to mention a great time buster in-camp. Or should I stick to the Java games and emulators in my phone instead? *dot*dot*dot*
|After arriving at the driving center this morning, the usual radio tuned @ Class 95FM was usually noisy at the locker shed. Namely making “noise” (aka celebrating) bout the Subaru Impreza challenge- a winner finally emerged after 66 hours and 53 minutes. Who? 36-year-old David Gerard Felix a chief flight steward won the car, finally… heheh, it fffiinallyy over…. for now. Till next year.
Anyway, so much for him winning that, hough’ its not as crazy as David Blane’s latest stunt either. Oh well, onto work matters. Tomorrow will be the last day of my biking course, so there will be some function aka farewell party. Moreover, I can say tata to the 7-5 work times, cos it would be stay-in from Thursday onwards. However, on top of that, I would be getting my class 2B license tomorrow too yea!
Looking back, I kinda breezed thru the motorcycle course without a hitch I can safely say, remarkably, I passed every single test in the course on the first attempt… *pats self on back* hehehe and yea, the off road riding today was SHIOK dudes! mudpools and camel humps rule!
|Stores everywhere are putting up Christmas deco now, even before taking down their Halloween ones.. urgh! My mum obviously had nothing much to do, pulling me and my sis to a beauty spa at Midpoint, boring! Marche was the place for dinner and drinking yesterday, the grill area is having a chicken mushroom stew with mashed potatoes… *slurp* then theres the usual finishing pizza, with my usual toppings of pineapple, prawns, peppers, chicken and ham. Theres no onstage performance tonight and gutton’s competition today.. so no free desserts. Lol!
There will be lots of hot phones coming out 4Q, 2003/1Q, 2004, namely the Nokia 6230, 7700 and Siemens SX1. I am currently deciding between the few. The 7700 is a little tad large being a PDA phone, but I love the touch screen and the full screen standard websurfing style/ablity (though 640×320 is a damn small res for websurfing now, but its a far cry from the other phones). The 6230 and SX1 are both similar in features, only that the Nokia 6230 is an EDGE 3G phone, being smaller, lighter but spots a smaller 128×128 screen and don’t run the better Symbian 60 series OS like the Siemens one.
And mmm, the Subaru impreza challenge is on for some days, this time there definately more competitors in the game with more cars compared to last’s year’s only one car. I wish them luck on it, frankly I see much better things to do than just putting your hands on a car for days or even weeks in a row, well…. Singapore *aheh* is well known for such endurance, esp queue power…. so let them show their stuffs.
So much for island-wide dirt bike riding on Friday and the day before, only thing’s that last night’s night riding is definately more interesting than the rest- RAIN! yea, it definately adds to the thrill, danger and exciting, not to mention going at bout 75km/h max on the ECP.. kinda slow, but not on a bike!… fun! hehheh.. Public bike riding riding don’t scare me now… da horns just grow naturally on ya head, and I can say the same for the rest in my riding team. Coming up on next monday is an island-wide off-road adventure, time to get down and muddy….
Matrix revoluions will be outin 3 days time… yea! but for now…. I gotta get rid of those cappuccino stains left on the keyboard this morning…..

|Mmm, so whats new? I mean passing bike tests in arow don’t seem to offer much kick now, not to mention those who tried very hard to pass (opps!). So why the *freak* did I mention this? yea, becus I passed my public road riding test today… another test?… *raises arms momentarily* yay! oh well, *sniffs* One more week to the end of the bike course. Tomorrow- dirty-off-road-dirt-bike ridin’..|
