Utter randomness and spontaneity (Spore trip)

It all started with this....
And I was like, eh? What is this guy up to? Where is he heading?
(Dialogue is not exactly the same but accurate representative of it)

And so I went:

'Hey where are you going lar?'
'Which country la??'
'The land of Lion, Singapore!'
'Wait... abroad.... with a BIKE??'

I was like.... Dafuqqqq?!
And I kept asking him for more details as the conversation had my adrenaline pumping.

Initially I thought he is so hardcore, cycling from Serdang all the way to Spore! But then only I understand that we will be sitting bus to Spore and tour the island instead. Ahahaha

That, was Thursday night.
The trip, will be on Saturday morning.
Checked passport, it is still valid, alright good to go!
Get a bike on Friday, a fold-able ones!And good, I'm ready to go!

And so, the journey that is totally unplanned (by me actually, Christopher planned to have it all along~) begins! (Dramaticnyaaaa)

There were some mishap here and there due to my lack of preparation and inadequacy in travelling experience.

1st case: I didn't bring enough RM to be converted to SGD (and the rate is 2.6 now mind you! oh so pain!) And so we have to stop awhile at the customs area just to find an ATM machine and take more money out, and that is when the 2nd case happened.

2nd case:
*After disembarking from bus in custom*
Chris: 'Eh, how come you looked so relax ah? I remember you got another orange luggage with you wan wor?'
Me: *total silence*
Chris: 'Don't tell me.......'
Me:  'Shit.'
That was all that I could utter, panic strike! Luckily he was quite steady and calmed me down.
His action was worth learning, when we face a problem, instead of lamenting on how clumsy, or kept thinking 'OH I SHOULD HAVE CHECK IT' and stuff like that, we should be calm, and find for a solution immediately.

He took out his broadband, find the contact for the bus company, contacted the hotline, and managed to track down the schedule of the bus. See, ini macam baru pro ma~~ It was a true relieve that he is around to help me out!

Fortunately (in a way) that luggage only contained things like clothes and toothbrush, all the essential items like wallet, passport and HP is still with me~ So we have decided to take the luggage on the way back BTS instead! And so I travel to Singapore only with the set of cloths I'm wearing. haha.

As soon as we reached Woodlands.
Yeap thats my bike~ See the relative size of the bike frame, and wheels compared to my body. Hahaha, I personally prefer bigger bikes, more power, but then, in order to travel around city and fit into buses/MRT, this is the only choice~

*Ignore my noob face, lol*
The 3 of us, cycling around Spore~

Basically the cycling is fun and all, and previous leg training minimize my fatigue of cycling. But..... my BUTT.IS.SERIOUSLY.HURTTTT!!!

Seriously, I have no idea why it is in such pain, maybe cuz its the first time since many years that I cycled, and we started of with such 'extreme' (in my definition lol) journey. Imagine the pain when you cycled for a duration, and when you lift your ass from the bike seat, the whole body is paralyzed from the pain for like 2-3 seconds..
And everytime the bike pass by a dent/bump/irregular surface on the road, I would just winced in pain. That was the biggest drawback, but in a way invaluable experience for this journey!

Things that I notice in Spore:

1) There are a lot of personal business-supermarkets there, unlike here in Msia, most of it dominated by hypermarkets like Giant, Tesco etc.


3) They will look at you one kind when you carry those bags of bikes around (well mayb this happens in Msia too lol idk)

4) The availability of cycling lane makes a lot of Singaporean bikers! It is regular to see people travelling around using bicycle!

5) A lot of things in Singapore is concerned with Fine. There is an underground ramp (just like jejantas, but its underground) to cross over the road. Cycling there will be fined 1000 FREAKING SGD. (wattaf?!) And then I saw a road sign saying something about expressway, and I think it has to do with the smart tag thingy, and then it says something like 'Singaporean will be fined 500 SGD if x comply with that'. And do you know that if you do not install a head and tail light on ur bike, u will b fined for 20 SGD after 630pm? *random facts of the day lol*

6) There is Green curry Mcchicken in Spore MCD branches! Mcdeluxe burger with green curry sauce, bt i still prefer the original ones. And do you know there are no refills of soft drinks in MCD Spore? Ahhh so paisehhhhhhhhhh lol
Another pic of my cute little bike. lol

So we cycled all day long, and reached Changi Beach at night. It was really nice (but sadly no pic available) with the sea breeze and all, and it was quite a sight that there are actually a lot of ppl that BBQ and pitch their camps to overnight there! Where to see such sight in Msia!

And after about 15 minutes.. Thunderstorm occurred.

Rushed to a pondok, and a group of people just ended their bbq party and packing things to go home. We were drenching wet but they did not invite us to come inside, instead, we have to inch our way to the edge of the pondok, close enough just not to be soaked under the rain..

Suddenly, a wild cat appeared with its dripping wet body and appeared to be cold and hungry. And suddenly, somehow I empathize the cat, maybe because we are in a similar condition as well, cold, and just ate a few bread for dinner. *sad background music*

Then, christopher was like, hey, airport is just another 4.6 km away!! I was in quite a painful situation at that time, my ass was literally killing me! But then, weighing the risk of overnight in this unguarded beach with so many strangers, its better staying in the airport, at least there is less danger, and protected from rain. haha

So, we decided to cycle to the airport, cuz we THOUGHT it was 4.6km onli...


(the story shall continue in the next post cuz i'm leaving for lunch now, kbye! lol)

那么简单的一个字, 都能让我的心跳加速,笑了起来~

就喜欢你靠近我, 对我 小小声的说话 =)

还 记得我读过一个这样的文章:

当两个人吵架时,往往都会很大声的回应对方。 为什么呢? 那是因为两个人的心, 已经距离很远了。。。。

而刚热恋的情侣, 都会窃窃细语的与对方说话~ 那是因为, 那俩的心都很靠近,很亲密,很多时候,就算不说, 也会明白~

一时的unfounded randomness. 哈哈哈哈, 要一直保持这热恋的甜蜜哦! (哇牢好像有点太肉麻了!)
We live with love. <3 br="">

Dubious, uneasiness, anxious, ambivalence, you name it. These are all emotions that we will come across some days in our lives.
In fact, some of us are troubled by it, every single day, by every decisions to be made, big or small.

Nevertheless, it is our choice, our responsibility.

Choosing a school:
Am I stepping into the right school?

Getting into f4:
Science stream or art stream?

Finishing f5:
Public or private institution, or in some, to work?

Getting into an institution:
Which program guarantees my success?

Finishing basic tertiary education:
To further study or jump into work force?

And, the one to be discussed today:
Is she/he really the one for me?

This is, IMO,is a question that posed in front of everyone, before they decide to engage in a serious relationship. Why this sudden realization you might ask. Haha, it all stems out from the party last night, when everyone was excitedly drinking, gambling and stuff, a few of us decided to just sit in a corner and talked about random stuff about relationship, while, of course, not forgetting to gossip around lol.

Gathering around with friends activates my 8-gua gene all the time. lol

Aaaanyway, back to the topic. So this is the question.. Is he/she the one for me?

Most of the time, if not all, is when a guy likes a girl, and his 'good feelings' (I shall categorize a relationship into 3 levels, from good feeling --> like --> love) is well reciprocated by the girl as well. Both of them likes each other and felt good when being together, but somehow, the doubt arises.

Is this feeling true? Am I really loving him/her or is this just an expression of concern due to the lack of companion / social norm of being into a relationship / peer pressure?

How is his/her treatment to me different compared to other boy/girls?

Is it really possible to know how and where this relationship will be, if we do not give each other a chance to know each other more? The transition from 'feeling good' to 'like' requires a period of time where both of them know each others' longs and shorts, while from 'like' to 'love', in my opinion, requires maturation of the bonding that can be acquired only through hardships and resolved conflicts. Accepting him/her as who he/she is.

You know, there is a saying that goes, 'do not commit into a relationship if you are unsure of your feeling, it is not child's play you know!'
But, again, is it possible to be sure of your own feeling before committing into a relationship? This is not rhetoric, I do hope for some answers from the readers. haha.

But today, I'm truly lucky and blessed to have made the first move, well, after being brain-washed by her friends. hahahaha~

Even the scenario stated above occurred to me, uncertainties of my own feeling + afraid of being rejected halted me from doing the right thing - to pursue what I've been longing for. A companion.

That is why, I'm happy that I did something brave, courageous and dispelled my uncertainties 158 days back =)

The Sunshine that makes me smile all the time, you are, and always will be <3 br="">
