its a little bit funny… what growing up means and does to you.. I for one have done a few things which i never thought i would at 16. it’s almost a decade now so i decided to make a list..
- Study beyond a Diploma
- Work in the IT/Manufacturing industry
- Holiday in the US/Europe before I’m 30
- Succumb to societal pressures (look pretty, stay slim, get married n have kids, what else?)
- Do any other form of exercise except my favourite sports (esp since I’m forever done with Napfa)
But guess what…
Study beyond a DiplomaI actually graduated with a Degree and a pretty decent GPA at that =O Work in the IT/Manufacturing industryIVE BEEN IN IT FOR THE LAST 2 YEARS!!?!?!? Holiday in the US/Europe before I’m 30Thanks to Shawn being posted to the U.S. for training, his kind sponsorship and a lot of krisflyer miles… I’ve been to NY! and then there’s short after work trips in Orlando and SF…!! Blessed me Succumb to societal pressures (look pretty, stay slim, get married n have kids, what else?)I invest heavily on make-up, all things beauty & fashion and I lust for branded bags 😦 not to mention all the dieting Do any other form of exercise except my favourite sports (esp since I’m forever done with Napfa)…..
I COMPLETED MY FIRST EVER 10KM CHALLENGE WITH SHAPE RUN LAST SUNDAY!!! OMG WHAT DID I JUST DO TO MYSELF!! and i actually do feel very happy and accomplished! *oh the horror* I’m already planning to do more runs but this time for charity.. Like the Yellow Ribbon Run for ex-prisoners, Race against Cancer.. or maybe even the Passion Run for the kids… what say you?? (and if you can think of any more I should join, do let me know..) I’m also glad Shawn is very enthusiastic to join me on these runs!! we could be a couple who runs for charity! 😛 Branding in progress..
but anyhow, here are some pictures from the run! I apologize prior for the poor quality from my iphone’s front VGA camera 😦
Looking at the route, i kinda wished i joined the pocari run instead. beautiful MBS and gardens by the bay! arghh… the most painful stretch of the route must have been at the F1 pit lane as well as the Nicoll highway stretch. NEVER ENDING!!!
Apart from the shag face. i remember numb feet, cramps and stitches… oh why did i put myself thru more than 1hr of this!!! and my eyes aren’t that small, its the SUN hehe
although i completed it, i aim to get a much better timing and run a lot more next time. stop a lot less. i think i can!
and after you perspire like MAD.. its time to refuel! Trying lao ban for the first time and pretty decent i must say.. something new. somehow, eating at Old Airport Road…… the food just doesnt seem as good as i remember anymore, or was it that i bought from the wrong stall? hmmm somehow wasn’t gratifying enough. AND, after the run, i seem to be eating alot more. ARGH wrong thing tt should be happening!! must control diet again!!
ahhh i miss the good old friendship and nonsense. 😀 glad to do this run.. TO MORE RUNS AND BEYOND! i hope you run for a good cause too, if you can’t, do donate and support the cause! 🙂
