feeling apprehensive yet looking forward. aiyo.
maybe i've done this too many times.
it's like my 2nd home.

and apparently, things are still going on the same as before.
the newspapers are just concentrating their report on a certain area...
now that there's a new bigger hoo haa about melamine
you don't see the riots on front page news right...

Why was melamine added into milk and powdered infant formula

In China, where adulteration has occurred, water has been added to raw milk to add to its volume. As a result of this dilution the milk will have a lower protein concentration. Companies using the milk for further production (e.g. of powdered infant formula) would normally check the protein level through a test measuring nitrogen content. Therefore the addition of melamine - because of its rich nitrogen content - could increase the level of nitrogen, which again masquerade as falsely high protein levels as the standard protein test only measures nitrogen content. This means that the adulterated milk would have an artificially high nitrogen level, which would be interpreted erroneously as a 'normal' or 'high' protein level.

Addition of melamine into food is not approved by the FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius (food standard commission), or by any national authorities.

If you haven't been able to pee...better read this...

Sim Chi Yin follows Paralympians Pin Xiu and Theresa at their swimming heats.


In Beijing

Pin Xiu propels her way to a second world record in three days in the 50m backstroke (S3). She lopped 3 seconds off her world previous world record of 1:00.80 with a new time of 57.92, fininshing first among 10 swimmers.

Singapore swim team manager Danny Ong tells Pin Xiu to look up in the stands where her parents are after she smashed her own world record. Pin Xiu, 16, lets out a wide grin and waves with her permanently-clenched fingers shortly after.

Singapore swimmer Theresa Goh looks up at the scoreboard to check out the timings of her opponents in the first of two heats for the 50m freestyle (S5) before surprising everyone but her coach by swimming her favoured breaststroke instead of the faster front crawl in her last race at these Games.

Finishing second last among 14 swimmers, almost all of whom did the front crawl, Theresa did not qualify for the finals. Coach Ang Peng Siong had asked her to swim the breaststroke to help her regain her confidence and correct her technique after she was disappointed last Friday when she narrowly missed the bronze in her pet 100m breaststroke (SB4) event. She finished in 53.67 seconds, about 1 second short from the world record of 52.62 seconds she set during the 4th ASEAN Para Games held in January this year.

'You give us hope,' Singapore Disability Sports Council president Tan Ju Seng told a quiet and humble Pin Xiu after the race. source

She gave us a gold and a silver medal and yes, a whole lot of hope and inspiration.
An inspiration that weighs heavier than the medals in total.

A made in Sg, trained in Sg, 100% Sg effort! 
Excellent job girl!!! I'm so proud, I'm about to burst!!
So happy, so proud but also a little sad.
Sad 'coz muscular dystrophy is degenerative.
I don't think I'd be strong enough to do the same thing if I were to suffer from it.

Her fighting spirit and tenacity have definitely touched many many MANY pple.
My heart goes out to her and I'm cheering her on for London 2012! By then her condition reportedly would have stabilized.

And even though Theresa Goh came home empty handed, we see the effort. Jia you!!

Suddenly all the nonsense with the swim team seem so minute.
Seriously, what the hell happened?

It never fails to amaze
How humans remember only the things they want to remember.
How people say things to suit their intended motive or image.
How they insist on doing things their way
Keep insisting their way works when the results show otherwise.
Expect the heavens when they don't sacrifice.

So how now brown cow?
Bystanders can only do so much.
The facts and figures are there.
You can see them for yourself.
If you insist on living with your head up in the clouds.
Then *clap!* *clap!*

As Rihanna says,
How about a round of applause?
A standing ovation?

i will save me.

Mooncakes are turning me into moon face.

Recently i've been binge-ing, maybe due to some issues i feel that are still not fully settled.
But at least im not feeling so fucked up anymore.
All negative thots, please go away!
There are other things that i need to do but as usual procrastination is in the way.

There are 2 tubs of chocolate ice-cream sitting in the freezer right now.
1 of them, a third of it is already GONE!!!!
Guess where it went?!!

At first, 2 scoops down the drain and then another 5 scoops into my cup.
And then i looked down at my recently formed tum tum.
SHIT! No more pushing away my diet plans.
Always saying, "i'll watch what i eat...after this bag of chips" or "...after this cup of ice-cream."

I ate like 2 table spoons of ice-cream and poured hot water and soap into my cup.
I'm stronger than the ice-cream.
Hahahah! =)

So the 1 good thing i did today was to throw away my cup of  chocolate ice-cream.
Time to treat my body with extra TLC NOW!
Not tomorrow, not later. 
NOW!!! NOW!!!

p/s even though it seems like food wastage and especially at a time, when everyone's trying to go green...i need to save myself first, before i can do better.

instead of rushing to go training. here i am blogging.
still unmotivated. still messed up.

i dont feel any team spirit. i hardly see my team mates.
those whom i do see...
it's like everyone's marching to the beat of a different drum.

Kwa's smirking comes to mind.

training recently has been quite drab. swimming less than 1k each time.
haiii...sian ji pua.

yes, yes i do understand that everybody have got their own things to take care of...like work, school, other ccas, clubbing, kids, friends, babies, gf, bf, ex-bfgf, mother, father, psycho bosses, psycho colleagues, age, health, injuries...etc. etc. etc.
i can list all them out...yet i still can't help but feel like im wading in the deep end alone.

i thought this year we'd be stronger but i can't see it and worse is that i can't feel it.

congratulations to me!~

the only good news is jeri's back and mel's better liao.
but that's a very tiny light in the very dark blackness [if there's such a description...]

okok be grateful there's at least some light.

aaaaaaiiiiii i need to stop sighing...

going for the shape run tomorrow and all i can feel is...pure sian-ess.
have to wake up at 5.45am, get ready and then deposit bag at 6.30 or so run starts at 7.30.

i need to stop harping on things i cannot change.
yup yup, don't harp...
let everything die a very quiet death.
