japan - the land of cutesies~
there even is such cute version of their map =)
so what do i love abt japan?
the vending machines?
yeah they are found practically everywhere
and u can buy almost anything from their vending machines
from normal ones like cold or hot drinks
to cigarettes and condoms
they seriously made full use of this invention for their convenience ya~
and i love tokyo!
(well its the only place i’ve been to in japan..)
love the ppl there
they are always so disciplined and polite
always keeping to the right
(yeah it might sound like a small thing but i am damn irritated with those ppl standing here there everywhere on the escalator blocking my way while i am rushing!)
its so difficult to find dustbins ard there but..
the streets are still so clean!
i found out later ..
the japanese actually picks up OUR rubbish
and and theres more to it
we can eat on the subway in japan hooray!
all boils down to the ppl being disciplined
they wont litter and dirty the train!
i love their culture and how disciplined (considerate) the ppl can be!
for all the above mentioned
i have to go to japan to experience it myself
but way before i went to japan
i love japan already!
and slam dunk gotta be my all time fav!
accompanied me through my sec 4 life
slam dunk made me laugh so hard and cry so much!
even now when i see them
i can still feel the clinch in my heart =)
slam dunk forever yay!
and how could i ever miss this out..
omg i love jap food so much!
jap food anytime for me man!
favourite is sashimi!
and favourite sashimi is mekajiki (swordfish!)
i can go to jap buffets and jus whack on the sashimi =P
and japan is such a lovely country
with the cutest things on earth!
one of the shops in tokyo
it was a sponsored trip to japan few years back
i wanna save money to go there again!
last but not least..
why was there sponsored trip?
cos of my favourite sports - cheerleading!
japan cheerleaders are one of those greatest around the world
it was such great exposure to be able to even watch them live
we couldnt even match up to their ALL FEMALE teams!!
it definitely opened my eyes
and widened my horizons!
i always like to look at jeans but i seldom wear them
partly cos singapore is way toooo hot
i prefer wearing denim shorts!
but jeans are really sexy
u can be all covered up yet still look so sexy in jeans~
and jeans are so sooo versatile
be it casual or semi formal
you can wear it to so many different occasion
see this is what i meant!
by all covered up yet still look sexy~
anyway surprises for u all~
next month is japan’s month!
all the sections in MFP including how-to videos, fashion, sales, beauty, etc
would have surprises in store for you!
remember to check them out k!
i really love japan~
remember few years back when i visited japan during spring
the weather was awesome
and the ppl were evev greater!
i really would like to have the chance to go japan again
i still kept thinking abt cheer after the comp
even though i have alr stopped competing for 2 years
once a cheerleader always a cheerleader
me and regine together cheered for ALL the competing teams
especially those teams whom nobody cheered for
but deep down inside my heart
i know which are the teams i really want them to win
yeah 2 teams
aces and wildcards
i dunno whether i shld feel happy abt the results
because both teams were the national champions
both teams won~
i was telling my colleagues before the comp
either team wins i would cry
cos i really dun wish to see any of these 2 teams lost
but do i feel happy abt the results now?
honestly i think nobody is really happy haha
its just a -_- feeling
i rather feel sad when either of these team loses than feeling this kind of
totally sian diao feeling
when it really shldnt be the feeling u feel aft a major comp =P
its still good
it might not be the best results but at least
neither team needs to feel sad
aces is still the defending champion!
the juniors, both team gold and blue
whom majority i dunno the names
have surprised me in many ways!
mostly new and inexperienced cheerleaders
they’ve shown us how much they have progressed in this short short period
and i really meant ALOT!!
well done aces~
i have my share of happy and unpleasant memories with aces to be honest
but afterall aces is still my home for cheerleading
i dunno how the relationship turned out to be so awkward
cos of some ppl in the team
but i still always see myself as an aces flyer
a fact that would never change
i remember the times when zm always talk to the flyers on msn
the times when neville n i were bitching abt other ppl
(mostly done by neville tho =P)
the times when rara bear would tell me its a routine he talks to his animal family on msn everyday
the times when spencer would msn me asking me abt my ankle
(i dunno why i even rmb this)
the times when ian just loved to give all sorts of nicknames some seriously awful
the times when i helped xw in wooing xw (haha~)
lots of things happened in the short 2 years i competed for aces
i guess i was too emotional back then
but then i think again
if ur friends cant accept ur emotional part
they arent really ur type of frens
lots of memories which nothing could change them
but memories are part of u which shldnt be left behind
they helped u to move forward to be a better person
i am still emotional
but good friends help me steer my emotions in the right directions =)
u have finally proven urself to be the national champs!
the best in singapore!
i am really really really ^10000 proud of you
wildcards are really like my little babies
(but stop calling me mama.. -_-)
i have been watching them grow
from the beginning until now
despite being a social team with limited time to train
and different commitments for everyone
you have grown sooo much
everyone surprised me in every possible way
with zero experience in cheerleading and inflexibility
plus psychomotor problem! (i still rmb e doraemon dance
u have became one of the best midtiers in my mind
and of cos a great cheerleader!
continue to strive hard ok?
and keep surprising me!
probably the tallest flyer ard
an almost impossible build for cheerleader
but u did it girl!
u proved to everyone who thot otherwise!
and i love the way u cheer e crowd~
never thot this monkey would be serious
but u pulled it thru all the way with wildcards
from cheerobics 2009 to SNCC 2010
never think u cant achieve things ok?
always have faith in ur coach n ur teammates
look at how great u performed on 20th march!
a born cheerleader with never ending energy!
and also great determination
u have great potential to grow girl
continue striving hard k!
known to be the flyer who eats alot
actually i think u are perfectly fine
ppl tease u cos they like u k!
hehe so jus be urself!
(cr gonna kill me help plsssssss!!!)
a small girl with great strength!
first met u at the grassroot perf
this cute lil girl came to me to ask me how was her stunt
heh?? interesting.. new wc flyer i nv met before
but she turned out to be so much greater than her size =)
one of the most flexible flyer i have seen!
i am so envious of ur flexibility can!
congratulations u r out of ur sad story corner!
and became such a confident cheerleader on stage
i am super proud of u watching ur routine girl!
a flyer whom i dun really know well
but in such a short time frame u r able to compete in that routine
with ur weight advantage
u can be a great cheerleader!
gain some muscles k! hehe~
dun really know all the bases
but there were a few i wish to mention..
my fav xiao di whom i always miss alot
who is always so emo
but also always so considerate for others =)
and of cos
u r definitely one of the greatest bases in singapore!
the cutest giant i ever seen but such a lil boy at heart
a lil boy who can protects me
and have always been there for me =)
super determined to achieve
and of cos turned out to be one of the greatest bases too!
succeeded tth with me e first time!
but it stopped there leh..
heard u tossed other flyers also the same height =P
but a great partner stunt base nonetheless!
might not be the biggest cheerleader ard
(esp with all e giants in the team =P)
but u have everyth else that a cheerleader needs!
great extension w me super long time ago
next time lets try more!
the most all-rounded cheerleader + coach!
we know u can handle flyers whom cr cant handle
and u can teach each intrigue details of the stunts so well!
best thing is u r a great designer!
from routine chloreography to uniform design
u r the best la~
the only (known to me) ah beng coach in singapore
noone points middle finger more than u
noone scolds more hokkien vulgarities more than u
but u were really a great coach to wc
and i believe u have found ur home in wc too =)
and to other bases esp the new bases:
kahau, ken, small gary, jayson, winston, harry, richard, wei hoe
(sorry if i missed out any name!)
u guys have really done such a great great job!
really really proud of u wildcards! =D
i can write a whole long essay for each of u!
but i shant bore u guys with old grandma story
(this post is long enuf already =P)
wildcards have ppl from all sorts of background
different levels of experiences in cheerleading
from zero experience to cheerleaders from the champions teams
at the end of the day
everyone of u has found your home in wildcards
and i am really happy to see that everyone is so bonded
keep it up cards!
you can achieve greater things in the future~ =)
now its the waiting time again
for next year nationals
this year all the teams have improved so much
i love rexaz and gusto performances too!
gusto improved tremendously
*applause to them!*
argh i am getting tired..
3 cheers for all the cheerleaders out there!
went to watch ‘the lovely bones’ with xp at lido~
a super nice movie directed by peter jackson!
its actually from a same-titled best selling book by alice sebold
while waiting for the movie to start..
didnt notice lido has such nice lightings~
and the design is quite nice inside haha~
susie salmon is the female lead
(i keep on thinking of salmon sushi =PpPpP)
she got the most beautiful blue eyes i ve ever seen!
and i dun usually like blue eyes
find them scary..
anw back to the story~
the movie is abt this 14 year old girl
who was raped and brutally murdered
her spirit was supposed to be going to the heaven
but she refused to go
yet she cant go back to the earth
and so she lingers in between heaven and earth
in her own little world
susie watches over her family and her murderer
seeing how the family continue living aft her death
her dad and sis trying to find the murderer
her mom refuses to accept the pain
and ended up moving away from home
watching her crush missing her
and then moved on with life with another girl
while keeping a piece of her in his heart
the murderer began to live at ease as the time goes by
sometimes her dad n lil’ bro could feel her presence
but she is just living in her own world with another free spirit
(whom then she found out was killed by the same murderer)
i love how peter jackson plays with the candy-colors
fantasy kind of themes in susie’s little world~
and at the end of the story
susie was filled with hatred
but she has to control her desire to vengeance
so that her family wont be hurt
she decided to move on
and so that the family can carry on with life too..
her father was another character whom i like alot
it was the fatherly love that touched my heart..
all in all
a must watch movie for this year k!
catch it catch it!
1. definitely gonna be this: women suffer for 9 months and bear all the pain to give birth! mothers are the greatest people!
2. women are seem to be soft but the truth is, women can handle stress better! we cry easily but crying helps relieve stress~ which is linked to my 3rd point below
3. women dont have strange ego to uphold - thats why we can be soft and cry when we are stressed/unhappy, showing our true emotions instead of letting them bottle neck till explosion!
4. women have the rights to get pampered! yay~ not the most impt but favourite! hehe~
5. women look good easily! or at least much easier than men. there’s a saying ‘there is no ugly women but lazy women’, we have all the tools in the world to doll ourselves up even if we are not blessed with looks to kill~
