day 1613 – underconstruction tradition 


the tradition of our annual secret santa exchange continues during one of our parties. the friendship we share is something special when we don’t need to see each other frequently, but still have the same affection for each other. after friendly hellos, shots start firing in all cylinders and the love hate relationship is revealed. when i’m with this crew, i’m as immature as i’ve always been like hamber days because some things just don’t change. we’re still missing chu in the picture but the plan is she’ll be physically in it next time

day 1044 – reunion tour

image

bringing back the full underconstruction crew where all of us are in the same timezone. nothing like an evening spent digging up past memories, laughing at our glorious days and relinquishing our dominance as a team. it’s amazing we rarely realize how far back we go and how long our friendship has lasted. we’re a rowdy bunch when the four are put together; reminiscence of the good old days. never underestimate the value of true friendship; we will always have each other’s back no matter which continent we are on

day 994 – three championships

image

from handball, to volleyball, to basketball to dodgeball, we’ve been to many finals through the past decade. thinking of all the things we say to each other, the endless pain we inflict on each other, but in the end, the amount of crap we take to play together. this is the love hate relationship we have created; i can’t imagine playing on any of these teams being as much fun without you. we’ve won three dodgeball championships together, this is by far the most memorable and satisfying one because it was so hard earned against our teammates. let’s keep it going

day 895 – koala attack

image

the camerawoman dropped me a mail this morning to showcase what was captured at last night’s rdl drop in. some crazy people started pouncing on me the moment i entered the gym as a way to show their love, or the love for my koalas. all i wanted was to be at peace with my koalas, but that wish was not granted. i do spend a fair share of time with the dodgeball community, and this is the kind of bond we have

day 880 – underconstruction crew

image

a lunch date and christmas exchange with the underconstruction crew. i haven’t received my present from my secret santa yet, but i’ll take into consideration it must travel across seven seas. it’s amazing the friendship of this crew reached twelve years and counting. this girl and i shared incredibly crazy memories in our years at hamber. we had classes together, shared lockers, spent mornings, lunchtimes, afterschools, practices, post practices and weekends together. upon doing the math, it equates to over ninety hours on a weekly basis. we’d devote lots of those hours harassing and beating each other up to our heart’s content. even though we don’t see each other as often nowadays, she remains one of my dearest friend

day 613 – all runned out

second in as many but this was a much shorter and much smaller scale. my quads were still tired from yesterday but surprisingly it didn’t affect me during the run and felt good afterwards. been a productive weekend in terms of getting out there and training for the sunrun and also getting in extra sleep that i lack on a normal basis. two days of running kinda made me feeling more refreshed and energized, definitely need more weekends off like this

day 366 – my hood

image

friday evening calls for taking care of business in my hood. switched it up from the normal today, doing some yoga work before indulging in a well deserved dinner to kick start the long weekend. i have developed a love hate relationship with yoga; i hate it but it’s not up to me to decide. whether i like it or not, i must continue to do so for as long as my knee requires rehab
