happy new yr.
the race was FUCKED UP.
F U C K E D.
38 checkpoints in 24 hrs (from 30/12 - 10pm to 31/12 - 10pm)
if there's any team, who can complete the 38 checkpoints in the stipulated time,
ill swap underwear with the person opposite me, moon, bend over to b spanked, frenchkiss the one on my right, suck another's toes, b tickled simultaneously by everyone n complete 100 situps.
(im sorry that i was spoilt last night.)
from choa chu kang,
we went sent to jurong hill,
then we had to head back to CCK (again),
only to b sent out to lim chu kang
b4 we realised we had to return to CCK (again).
from king albert's park,
we had to retrace our steps back to CKK (again).
i guess by now, u guys wld have gotten the gist of our routes.
wat's the pt of travelling when each clue brings u back to ur starting point?
simply frustrating to hitch a 30min ride only to hitch another one back.
there was no way in which we cld skip a checkpoint as clues for the next would only be revealed when we have completed the given task at the present.
enough was enough.
it was fun till 11am.
by that time, we had been racing for the past 13 hours.
trekkings in the jungles were all done in the middle of the night, between 12 to 4am.
our first trek took us 2 hrs all thanx to the vague instructions n a misleading detour. at one pt in time, we were the only team in sight n 4 a couple of moments, it was easy to believe that any moment now, i wld b pounced upon by some unidentified human being(?) from the bushes surrounding us.
our 2nd trek took us another 1hr 45 mins to get from one end to the other, only to find out that we were merely 200m from the entrance. )(*&^%$#$%^&*(*&^%$. there was a particular stretch which was muddy. n smelly. oh, so smelly, just like drain water overflowing with a mth's old garbage. so for the next 20 hrs, i had waterlogged shoes.
was forced to grab a jumping frog by its belly.
the soft flabby belly.
the kicking legs.
the constant ribbit ribbit.
was forced to drink down 10 raw eggs, well beaten to form a homogenous mixture.
1st mouthful -- yum, just like half boiled egg.
2nd mouthful -- too much of a gd thing is never gd.
3rd mouthful -- gag reflex setting in.
(neng sneakily went to pour half away when the guardian werent looking.)
4th mouthful -- ive quite enough, thank u. (passes my round.)
5th mouthful -- (gags. passes my round.)
(madhavi n i painstakingly cooked the mixture over wet coals.)
6th mouthful -- pass me the salt n pepper.
i think, in 24 hrs, ive hitched more than 20 rides.
cars - 4.
lorries - 6.
its amazing how many wld stop for u/turn u down in the middle of the night, after explaining that u have to get from there to point B with no cash.
teams were considered to b disqualified from the race if they were unable to complete any checkpoints.
all teams were unranked by 10am, merely 12 hrs after the starting of the race.
the race lasted for 3D2Ns,
less than half of the teams pulled out.
the race lasted for a short 24 hrs,
75% of the teams had pulled out by the 22nd hr.
all i wanted, was to complete the race, even if we had to do so unranked.
i never wanted to win.
it was only at 2pm when futility set in, when i realised that we had yet to even clear half the checkpoints.
i lost all motivation henceforth.
i had let the race get to me.
not an entirely ideal way of ending the yr.
ps: next yr, ill considering racing again.
if only, the organisers had made sure that the race was humanely possible to complete.

note: madhavi was the leader for my expedition to india. the seaside town, kanyakumari, which we helped out previously, was apparently affected by the waves. however madhavi was unable to contact father felix so we aint sure what sort of assistance they wld like. so for now, this is the only way.
goldhill plaza, a circular building, is located opp novena mrt.

we meant to take the xmas lights along orchard road.
but we got sidetracked when a construction worker beckoned us in
and we played with his mini monopoly while we tasted his banana crepes.
in all, we had a wonderful evening.

n so, all of us young singaporean girls r dying to have sex with an angmoh.
Sexual relationships in Singapore
If you are traveling to Singapore, you may be interested in sexual relationships with locals, and no, I do not mean the services of prostitutes or other commercial providers.
While you can meet Singaporeans interested in sex accidentally, the chances of success are not particularly high if you are there only for a limited period of time.
On the other hand, Singaporeans often are sexually attracted to foreign people. For young Singaporean women, it is chic to have a Western boyfriend.
So, there must be a trick to overcome the time-consuming "accidental", and to link more effectively the sexual interests of foreign visitors with those of locals.
Try the Internet. Or, more to the point: try www.AdultfriendsFinder.com. The service lists some 25,000 Singapore residents explicitly interested in non-commercial sexual relationships. While there are more males on the search than females, there are indeed an amazing number of women using the service.
So, if you don't want to exclude the possibility of a sexual relationship with a Singaporean housewife or a bi-sexual college student, you may want to check the Singapore listings at www.AdultfriendsFinder.com. It's free to browse the database.
*opens an account on www.adultfriendsfinder.com for jo.
jo, a 17 yr old student, currently looking for a fling with a well-endowned english white male who brings expensive gifts each time he comes down to singapore.
on this day, my frenz wld wake up super early at 4am, or rather, they dont sleep the whole night, bundle themselves up in their warmest clothes, head down to the city n stand outside their fave stores.
only coz all shops, including the likes of gucci, prada n lv r having a major sale with at least 50% off.
boxing day, let the real shopping begin.
n as we all know,
i hate crowds.
so i never did join them in the Qs.
half of the smses ive gotten r mass messages.
if ure gonna b so impersonal, pls dont send it to me.
half of the smses ive gotten r from strangers.
did ushering for wild rice's aladdin.
coz i was too cheapo to fork out 35/45/55 for a tix.
there was nothing wrong with the directing.
there was nothing wrong with the lights.
there was nothing wrong with the sound.
there was nothing wrong with the set.
there was nothing majorly wrong with the acting.
however, i didnt like the show.
for the first time in my life, im unable to pinpoint wat went wrong in the show.
i think im losing my touch.
jo thought that the piece wasnt engaging enough.
maybe pantomimes aint really my cup of tea.
one cinderelah! n one aladdin,
i guesss ive enough fairy tales for now.
