Youth Olympic Games

Youth Olympic Games

Reading Time: 1 minute For the past one week, while my peers are busy with their confusing lectures and notes, I was enjoying my time at Kallang Tennis Centre. I missed out Vivace for YOG; I missed out bonding time with schoolmates for YOG. However, the takeaway from the place was more friends and memories. Really, I do treasure them though short. OK, back to studies. In the future, my posts will most probably as short as this.

First Reply from Singpost

Reading Time: 2 minutes I want to write this with plenty of expletives injected into each sentence as adjectives or nouns. But, let’s be civil on here. Remember my parcel?

They emailed me: Dear Mr Robert Sim, We apologise for the inconvenience caused. We have investigate the situation and have advise the courierman incharge to follow strictly SingPost Procedure.

Delivery screw up by vPost

Reading Time: 4 minutes Today, I received the Loop Pointer I have bought from USA. There was a screw-up in the delivery method, in my opinion, though. My family was not at home to receive the parcel.

[Youtube] 天黑黑

[Youtube] 天黑黑

Reading Time: 1 minute 天黑黑是一首家喻户晓的歌。我第一次听这首歌的时候是中一,中二的时候吧。那时,颜永成学校合唱团为了比赛而学习。 孙燕子借用了一些词而唱了她的天黑黑。 周一,thinkfamily.sg发出了一份关于孝道的短片。在这短片里,这首歌被用来作为一个桥梁,进入了父亲和奶奶的回忆。对许多人来说,这无疑带来了很多的感情。请慢慢观赏。 P.S. My grasp of Chinese is rudimentary. So please, if you find any mistakes, leave a comment. I have tried to use Google Translate as minimally as possible since the translation is not always not accurate.

My body is quite sensitive to motion immediately after runs, and the outcome can be me fainting over nothing. To prevent that from happening, I decided to try the concrete flooring on my back:

Ring ring ring ring ring. No answer. Slide. “Sigh.” “Oh, forget it,” while looking around the lighted streets inappreciatively. Switching on the iPod Nano, the world became oblivious once more…
