Saturday was quality time spent with le love boy and we went to catch fish together at Pasir Ris farm! 😀
Started catching our fishies which is the main purpose of this trip because Isaac wanted to “catch fish“. But he ended up playing with the dirty water more and it was mainly Vic and I who caught the fishes! Hahaha!
It wasn’t easy at all and I was sweating like mad as I chased after all the fishes. The net is sooooooo small and even with a bigger net, it doesn’t help much because the fishes are really smart and alert so once they see something coming in the reflection, they move away so quickly!
But sadly, while packing our fishies to bring home, the bag burst as the person was filling it with air and our fishes dropped all over the floor! CRY!!!– Our hard work all gone 😦
But the staff picked the fishes up to put them back into the pond and compensated us with brand new fishes from the tank. Though those fishes are slightly bigger and of course healthier than those in the longkang pond, I still feel a bit sad because my hard work has gone down the drain, literally.
Off for NDP practice all the way at the ulu pandan Kranji Camp again and look at the number of formations we have to remember this year! I have absolutely ZERO confidence that I can memorise all these, let alone the aunties who are still dancing opposite directions from the rest!
Not trying to be bitchy but I wouldn’t be saying this if they actually bother to do anything about it. They just simply insisted that no audience would be able to spot them doing the step wrong so it’s fine to carry on. *On fire!!!*
That’s not how a team should think and that’s not how a mass display should be! At least not when I first performed for NDP. Back in school if any single person does a step wrong, it will definitely be spotted and corrected and the mad choreographer will be shouting his lungs off from level 2 at the whole cohort of us because that’s teamwork – if a person makes a mistake, it affects the entire mass display.
Well, of course I said nothing this year; it’s not like my profile ain’t high enough now, which is why I am taking the last row this year! Anyway I don’t like doing formations because we don’t get to dance as much this week 😦
Had a gathering with secondary schoolmates over at PS Manhattan Fish Market after almost 9 years!!! Really appreciate Nigel’s initiative for suddenly coming up with this idea and I know it’s not easy at all to organise one, which is why this class chairperson has avoided this duty for so long =X
Yea but I helped out in organising this one and so glad that it turned out to be a success! Of course it would have been much better if we could find places with big round tables, then it would be easier for everyone to talk. But this was the best alternative I could get for 18 people!
Somehow it seemed like I’ve been arrowed for organising the future gatherings because everyone said the gathering page admin skill was “一级棒” -_- Even Vincent who said he has never liked anyone’s post or photo in Facebook actually liked my admin post(s) for the page…hahahaha! Guess I should be super honoured~
Look at how cuteeeeee he was back in school! He even remembers that I used to write his journal homework for him because he refused to hand in his homework and since I love writing journals (it’s like blogging!), I thought it was quite harmless for me to write on his behalf. But it’s just journals, not any other homework of course~
I don’t know if I have posted all these old photos on my blog before, but I had uploaded on Facebook some time back and we all had a good time reminiscing and laughing over good old memories!
This was taken during our excursion to Kampong Glam! 😀 (Gui really looks like an epic caveman back then)
In the excursion bus! Actually everyone hasn’t changed that drastically except that Nigel (middle) has forgone his centre parting and Sebas (right) has also lost his baby fats xD
This boy has definitely look more mature now as well though the way he speaks is still the same! In fact, everyone is really still the same to me as in the quiet ones will still be quiet and the noisy ones will be more chatty as usual 😛
And you can tell how mischievous the boys were… During the gathering, we even reminisced about the days they played soccer in class every day without fail and I would be busy shouting, “Stop playing!!!!!!!!!!!!” Even went on the extent of confiscating their soccer ball! At a point of time I hecked care and they broke the glass window. And dented a fan. -_-”
Finally a proper group photo with everyone clearly in shot! Really appreciate everyone for coming and making the gathering possible, though I felt really bad cause the other end of the table where Kai Bin & Co were seated was really quiet =/
Nevertheless, we had so much laughter during the dinner and so much nostalgia thinking back on those days!!! Good to catch up with everyone as well and know that they are all doing well (:
Thought that’s for the night and I was actually ready to hitch a ride from Sis, who was also in PS with Vic and Isaac~ But the guys suggested going for one drink before we call it a
day night and I thought I should be spontaneous for it, since I am also one of the organisers! Hehe.
It was another good few hours spent catching up on each others’ lives and in a smaller group this time, cause half of them went off, so it was easier to talk in a way. Really felt that everyone has grown up!!!!!! 老了～！！！x.x
