day 1929 – bugis market

first full day in singapore and we were greeted by a thunderstorm on our way to the hotel. so far, we’ve seen a variety of weather from thunderstorms, pouring rain, and scorching heat. we touched down on bugis market on our first night, a district famous for its street foods and street vendors. we walked through the crowded blocks where things were decently priced. i went home having bought a few pieces of clothing for work

day 1435 – monotonous 

another day and another sleep deprived night. it was hard enough to fall asleep, but it was harder to stay asleep; i couldn’t stop waking up thinking i overslept. the discomfort today got so much i resorted to some tylenol so to dull the discomfort. for the rest of the day it felt like a drag and i wasn’t really present. i had no appetite by dinner time i didn’t even bother. affected me everywhere at rehab and even just lying down

day 1359 – universal studio

a full day of universal studio under the blazing sun can be exhausting. every so often, we scampered towards the shades to cool off. i had a good time with the walk throughs and rides; it felt like i was reliving my childhood. we covered pretty much everything we wanted including transformers, minions, harry potter, men in black,shrek, simpsons. i wouldn’t have been content leaving the theme park not having done them. it was a lot of walking in one day; my right ankle is acting up like all asia trips, but it’s well worth it

day 1115 – live streaming

the lone canadian representative fought this morning and lost to a korean fighter. there’s a lot to be proud of as she worked very hard to qualify to be an olympian, it’s only a dream for most. you would think olympic cameras are set up properly, but not sure how this camera angle is suitable for watching taekwondo matches. it’s so hot today, better off staying home.even then i’m sweating as i sit still and constantly feel like i need to shower

day 1114 – fresh air

image

getting outside for some fresh air because being trapped indoor makes me bored and drowsy. even though temperature is up in the thirties, it’s not so bad when there’s shade under the trees and water to calm my soul. the hike did it’s job; i came home recharged and finished my poster graphic. i had a lot of technical difficulties dealing with gigantic files, constantly compressing and keeping the file sizes down was a pain

day 1109 – diamond two

image

the warmup for my softball playoff game was walking across the beautiful but neverending mowed grass. it was so hot under direct sunlight, but some would say it’s perfect weather to play ball. i started the season batting ninth, kept moving up as the games went on and today found myself third in the batting order. the season didn’t end in glorified fashion, but it was the team effort that counted. i played hard even when we were trailing, striking the ball three solid times along with a walk. i guess an 8am game has a lot to do with how sleepy i am. i’ll pass out early and get my stuff done tomorrow morning instead

day 733 – airport outlet

image

heard it was crazy crowded the first few weekends of it’s grand opening so didn’t bother joining the rush. my parents wanted to check out the mcarthur glen designer outlet this weekend and i didn’t mind tagging along as the third wheeler. it’s a nice area but there’s no special sale that would have been worthwhile for me to lineup for several weeks back. things weren’t particular cheap but i did however buy a couple items from under armour
