Koala keeps on klimbing!

You just can't keep a good girl down. This girl has an injured knee (a slight fracture i think) and has to wear a knee brace. And she's still climbing! She was nice enough to 'pose' for me. Thanks Su En!

As a tribute, here are some pictures of her in action from my.. *ahem*, personal collection.

We climbers are a hard lot to stop..

Silver medalist.

Me and Beatrix.. silver medalist (bouldering) at the recent Asian X-Games in KL.

She is one of the strongest local female climbers and has certainly gained recognition for Singapore. You GO GIRL!!

Kudos to Zaki too for coming in second for the speed climbing category!

And kudos to Jasper too!

For recovering 100% of his spilled chalk! Sorry, no medals for this pal..

The Gospel of Judas.

Just bought this book today and i'm looking forward to reading it even MORE than wanting to watch The Da Vinci Code movie.

Inspired to write..

A friend has recently inspired me with her writing talent. So i've decided to try writing a little ditty myself..

Too old for Wushu?

Am I too old for wushu?
I did not have, any clue.
Practice on Tuesday, I went..
My mind was seriously bent!

Our legs kicked really high..
ALAS..! I hurt my thigh.
I had to stop, my coach could see..
The little girls laughed at me!

Was it a recipe for disaster?
Perhaps a plan, of the Master?
Fri, Sat, Sun.. rock climbing..
And Mon.. 6km of running!

My tired body had not rested..
Or maybe, my age is tested.
Praise heavens, for deep heat..

My leg felt like dead meat!

Alas.. it must be true..
I AM too old for wushu :(

Rock music

Rock music was the first kind of music i fell in love with. Guns n Roses and Metallica were just a few of my favourites. Of course, that was like 16 years ago. However, watching videos like these reminds me why i fell in love with rock music...


Please turn up your volume.

I have a lot to be thankful for.
When i got a job last year, i was extremely happy at being able to get a good job (with good pay) after being 'unemployed' for so long and at being able to earn a salary again. But all that ended when the old man had his stroke after a few months and i quit my job to look after him and his affairs.

But after his discharge from hospital and getting Charlyn to look after him, i was fortunate enough to get my old job back (boss still let me go to krabi for 2 weeks!). And i did not even have to submit a new job application to my employer or go through an interview. Heck, they do not even have any copies of my certificates!

So i am VERY very thankful..

Magical moment.

This evening, i helped cousin Rahia to take her first steps unassisted. And from then on.. she started walking on her own..

Makes me want to get married and have children of my own. And it's a very rare moment indeed when i make a statement like this.

Life certainly does have it's magical moments :)
