Sunday, "Fun"day

Other than one incident which pretty much marred my day, today was by any other standards a good day. 3 things stood out which made it a fun Sunday: 1) Ping-Pong: Finally had a rematch with Zibin after 4 years. The last time we played was at my aunt’s place and it wasn’t all that shiok since we played barefoot, w/o our bats and in a low-ceiling room. Today we played in a squashcourt, newly reconfigured bats and with proper footwear (big []

Tradition….Tradition!

It’s “Duan Wu Jie” again, and since I was really young, I had looked forward to this festival because of my grandmother’s rice-dumplings. I remember when I was around 9 or 10 yrs old, I once sat down with 2 of my cousins (all of us were the older siblings) in my grandmother’s kitchen and tried to learn how to wrap the dumplings. We were terrible at it of course, and got more rice on the table than in the bamboo leaves, []

Bag Lady

Mom brought me to her room today and showed me what she bought from L.A. And among other things, saw this mass of black Nine West bags on her bed… plus one Guess bag. Gifts she says… asked me to choose what I want first. I did. Got 2 new bags now… just wish I had a white one as well. *grin* And oh! She got me a splendid new watch too! Just when I needed one… She’s a mind-reader! And I’m []

Ping-Pong Anyone?

Went to Bras Basah Complex yesterday with two of my ping-pong bats and got the rubber changed. It’s mind-boggling the array of things they have now as compared to 10 years ago… high tension rubber, high spin etc etc. Chose a high-tension rubber for my forehand (greater control for spins w/o compromising on speed, supposedly) and a harder rubber for my backhand (better for ‘pushing’). I also changed the rubber for one other competition-grade bat so that I can lend a good []

Meeting up again

Best part of being back in Singapore: Reunions. Picked my dear brother up from SAFTI yesterday evening and went out for dinner at Suntec with him, his Cathy and Zibin. Jet-lag whalloped me halfway through dinner and I would have slept at the table if not for the fact that I was really, really hungry. I fell asleep in the car when we were sending Cathy home though and nothing could wake me up. Not even when the guys stopped to buy []

Where's My Igloo?

There’s nothing like jet-lag to get a girl’s mind wandering at 4a.m. Following the path my wayward mind has decided to lead me on, I returned once again to the conundrum that’s been plaguing the back of my mind increasingly often lately. Where do I belong? Sometimes I tell myself it’s not a big deal, this question of belonging to either Canada or Singapore. Citizenship is just a ‘technicality’ afterall, isn’t it? Then why is it everytime I return to Singapore I []

Back in Singapore

Hot, hot, sticky, sticky. Sudden downpours, sheets of rain. Noisy (tv) bus rides. Mosquitoes. Shorts & sandals everywhere. Slow internet connection. Yep. No doubt about it… Back in Singapore.
