UofTBound'05

UofTBound on Aug 13th turned out to be quite a success ! Am very proud to have been a part of the team that made it happen. Certainly hope that this is a good beginning and that these young friends of mine in the MSSA will continue to believe in their ability to make things happen and to believe in the potential value of what they can do for the Singaporean community in UofT. There’s so much to learn in so many []

Inconceivable

I don’t understand why people can be so hardened of heart that even when a thunderbolt comes out of the clear blue sky, they still cling to their stubborn pride. I don’t understand it. I don’t know if there’s love there or not. But I shall still cling in faith, hope and love to Him. Please Lord, keep us close as we walk this difficult stretch in our lives. And please, please if You will, help that wayward child of Yours.

Timex for Love

Got myself an early anniversary present today… a Timex Ironman: Triathalon sports watch! Had been looking for some time for a new sports watch that can accompany me on ping-pong games and swimming sessions. Am very pleased with the sporty beauty Zibin bought me. We found a really handsome one for him too. We celebrated our find with chilli crabs at the Long Beach Restaurant at IMM. Messy as we always are when it comes to crabs, our new babies came through []

"I wish…more than anything…more than jewels…more than life!"

I’m back Into The Woods! Huijun & Huimei got me a DVD of the original production of Into The Woods. I decided to try it… BIG mistake. It took all my will-power to stop it and go back to work. But then Zibin came home and I just had to show him the Prologue and Agony I & II. BIG hit! He really enjoyed it. Having seen the subtitles he’s now even singing parts of Agony. In fact he can’t seem to []

Privilege … Inequity… Dissonance

Because of a special request I decided to try changing my flight back to Toronto to August 24th. I thought it would be a slim chance as the last few times I put myself on waiting lists for Cathay Pacific flights to Toronto I either didn’t get it, or got it on the day before my confirmed flight. This time was different. I made the call at 9a.m. They called back at 9:40a.m. and told me i had a new confirmed flight []

Experiences 2005

Today was Experiences 2005 the “American University Convention”. Somehow UofT got a booth space along with the other US universities (and our fellow Canadian Univ McGill) at Suntec City. Despite a rather too rushed preparation period with insufficient human-power in the days leading up to the event, I think we fared pretty well! People didn’t expect to see U of T, but many stopped to inquire. We also got an invitation from UMich Ann-Arbor to partake in the inter-varsity games they are []

Real Life Zoe & Hammie!

It’s funny how often I’m surprised at how late I find things out. I’d been visiting Zibin’s flat for 6 years now, and it completely escaped my attention that there was a lovely young family next door. Dad, Mom, an almost 4-yr old girl and a currently 8-mth old little boy. The first time I met them was the night before Serena’s wedding. The mom came over to give Serena an ang-pow and apologize for not being able to attend. Half-hiding behind []
