Ending the 2nd week. Found this little nifty app (Noom) that I’m using, see how that works out. =P Was inspired because guama said I was getting shapeless. (the ‘nicer’ or ‘harsher’ way of saying that I’m fat I guess, I dunno.. guama works in mysterious ways)
I kinda wish they gamified it a little, like having little badges of glory like 4sq does. But I do love the way they make you classify your food into categories, a simpler concept to grasp that painstakingly counting calories. Honestly, might work for overseas where they display it just about everywhere (including the greasy spoon places!), but here in KL where the mere concept of it to the masses is almost unheard of, this is a really awesome alternative to a diet diary.
Last weekend was epic (I know, telling it late! but still)
1) Teambuilding event @ Port Dickson
Our team won *both* challenges! With Venee! Which was amazing, she was sporting enough to go through most of the challenges, so I think our team as a whole was really proud of her. Some daunting things like the 6-foot and 8-foot wall, she conquered them too! =D
Last obstacle. I nearly fell back into the mud backwards, but Young saved me! *phew* I is thankful, but for the rest of this week I keep getting made fun of. muh.
Sea rafting was probably one of the more awesome experiences I’ve had. Building the raft was a challenge in itself, but it was fun. And ROWING. zomg rowing was AWESOME LAH! Was yelling my heart out, half angry, and half going “OMG WHEN IS THIS GOING TO FUCKING END” even though my arms were killing me – simply because I knew if I stopped for any longer than 10 seconds, I would totally give up. I would love to do it again.
Was amazing too that I managed to drive back and have enough strength to hit the gas. haha!
2) KLSwing! 3rd Anniversary Partay
‘Twas a whirlwind after I got back home from PD: quickly showered, prettified and made my way to F Buffalo Kitchens. I have to say, I nearly pigged out on the fish fillets. SO DAMN GOOD. Also loved the salad with seared tuna. Now, this is quite something because I’d normally shy away from tuna *UNLESS* it’s fresh. And this one was. =D I need to go back there just to have a proper meal.
Managed to squeeze in some dancing too. At this point fatigue hadn’t killed me yet, so all was good. XD There were Singaporeans. There was the Shanghai dude. And there were us KLSwingers. Small, neat crowd, at a place with really nice ambiance. And nice flooring. And also, nice props! Took some pictars at the conservatory, library, dining area, and the spot with the little garden gnomes. XD So. That was a really really great end to my Saturday.
3) Lunchies with Reeis & Co.
When I woke up. OMAGAWDS I CANNOT LIFT MY FUCKING ARMS. Wearing a t-shirt was easily the dumbest (and most painful thing) to do. But off I went. =D
I got a Holga!! XDXDXD I can’t wait to go out and take some pretty pictures with it. =) Also bought an extra roll of film for my Actionsampler.
With the Guardian of the Monkey Temple almost physically bruising me where I sat, the fun started. (After we had eaten, of course.) Reeis was like “hey hey hey, it’s your birthday!” So she was hustling me to be the center of attention when sly Sara and Nat said “Hey Reeis, you might want to re-read that card on the cake again.”
“Happy Birthday Reeis & Sook”
I LAWLED SOOOO HARD! They were good XD So it was Reeis and me singing “WEEE AAREE THE CHAAAMMPIIONNSS!” in the middle of Fridays on that fateful Sunday noon.
We sat back for abit and talked about.. “What ifs”. It turned into a mini RPG-esque storytelling thingamajiggy though, involving Minotaurs and Medusa in a cave and having our own.. Patronuses. Kind of. XD
It reminded me of days back in primary school where Jyan and I would participate in YK’s Dungeon Master-style RPG, with him as the game master, of course. Complete with fictional characters and sometimes he would antagonize my character just so we all could have some laughs. I miss those days.
