Brown - You're brown, a credible, stable color that's reminiscent of fine wood, rich leather, and wistful melancholy. Most likely, you're a logical, practical person ruled more by your head than your heart. With your inquisitive mind and insatiable curiosity, you're probably a great problem solver. And you always gather all of the facts before coming to a timely, informed decision. Easily intrigued, you're constantly finding new ways to challenge your mind, whether it's by reading the newspaper, playing a trivia game, or composing a piece of music. Brown is an impartial, neutral color, which means you tend to see the difference between fact and opinion easily and are open to many points of view. Trustworthy and steady, you really are a brown at heart.

What's Your True Color?

seems very true.

been relaxing these few days...
working, mahjong-ing and watching bleach
and of course sleeping
suppered with grace on wednesday night after mahjong

last time our supper group so big
now so hard to get everyone
only goes to show how much everyone has moved on.
saw grace home before walking my lonely walk home
kenneth called halfway, but i still managed to gather some thoughts
talk abt it later.

managed to mend my nike meurical vapor ( soccer boots)

but i still wanna buy new boots
i have cast my eyes long ago on the red adidas predator with metal studs
i have this thing for striking colours

but i like that boot very very much
before school starts i am gonna go shopping in queensway for sports stuff
i would want an adidas jersey
boots if i can afford it
and some other random things

as usual, being not busy enough
makes me think again
i realise i am someone who rather have a few close friends then many good friends.
like the metaphor i was telling taufiq and owen that day

i rather have 5 big fishes then 20 small ones
dunno how i thought of that, but it just came to my mind
okay i am revealing too much of myself

friends are returning from overseas!
now got more entertainment online
but the pig ivy not back yet

stacey is going to japan for a year..
extremely saddening but i guess this is wad life is abt
to improve yourself and grab chances whenever there are..

on a happier note though
the new RP campus looks awesome.. seriously
and we got 9 new courses next year

and there are 3 new SPORTS related!
wa i want lor
dunno whether can change course in year 2
we can change course in year 2, but i dunno whether it is appliable for the new courses
seems like no

business computing surely very boring leh
my senior said so

and to top it off
i got straight bus to school again!!
probably only my area could have straight buses to RP:Tanglin and RP:Woodlands

alright, going off to sleep now..
wish u guys a blessed christmas!

so far been sticking to plans
hit the gym twice during the weekend,
and worked from friday to today!

probably gym again tml

though plenty of my RP friends have gone overseas,
i guess it is somewhat a blessing in disguise..
because i have started catching up with my sec sch clique

it was jeff at first at the MRT
then jonathan at the BBQ
chris and jian ming at jian ming house
yiqun at GYM
robin at TOWN

haven seen alexis for ages though,

what is your purpose in life?

i think too much when i got nothing to do
that might be bad or good..
but this question is very good

without a purpose in life,
isn it the same as driving on a road without a destination?

ahh......... i dunno
din step out of the house today
except to buy food for bro

watched bleach
and chat online
and sleep!

seems like my sec 2 days lol

it seems rather sad
so what if i have got many friends?
so what if i achieved plenty of things?

i dun even know what am i living for...

on another note
i got work and gym for the next 3 days
so getting rather busy..
which is good

everybody is going overseas!!
no wonder lesser and lesser ppl to talk to online
a good thing though
is that the other polys are having their hols soon

for me now
is to work work and work
and go out and enjoy the rest of the hols
i going to step up abit and start organising stuff

and of course rugby
more or less
that would be my plans

a step by step kinda plan
but thats the way i like it

till den.. i will continue searching for my purpose in life!

what a fufilling weekend...

had an great day on friday
went out with classmates (PS01-04) to shop for bbq stuff
i guess the class is getting closer (:
but there will be definately some outcast for some reason
i wonder why

i was keeping quiet during the class conference on the phone on thursday night
they were asking for me
den someone asked, "where is that idiot pig?"
i got tricked and replied. "oi! who is idiot pig!"
den they "haha.. found you! "

sian la... but the class bbq at east coast on friday was fun
cake-smashing and me getting my shirt dirtied by angie!
they went home at ard 10.30

i started my lonely walk from pit 43 to pit 4
BB is also having a bbq so i went over..
walking though the route brought back many memories
i remember having kayaking lessons during sec 3
and some leisure kayaking..

those were fun days
i remember robin capsizing me instead of using my boat to recover
and den me having to use his boat instead to recover
so funny la

and there was also the adventure quest in 2004
how my team managed to go though the whole of east coast with 2 guys running and 2 bikes
and den having to deal with a puncture
that race forever is etched in my mind

i felt so proud when we finished the race at plaza singapore
i remember i teared slightly when i realised we lost by a few seconds to the 3rd team...
so disappointing and unlucky

and of course the pain and cramps i had in my body..
i could not even sit properly!

so fitting though
when i reached the bbq.. (finally)
my officer said " hey terence! next yr want join AQ anot!"
haha.. i said see first.. coz i will never know wad will happen next yr

caught up with my officers
they talked abt BB, their lives and God
got me thinking again..
after that. ran off to play soccer with the Boys!

and water bombs too
benjamin being a pain again
keep calling me a cheater
so the water bomb went down his ass =X

after that got tired
the Boys had to bring the tents under shelter
so ivy entertain me!

talked till my phone batt went off
and borrowed my junior battary
left 2 bars when i returned him
and its a nokia phone.. lol

i got restless and playful after that
tried putting bbq sauce on my juniors's hands and tried to make them touch their face
but failed! :(
haha... caught up abit with jon and left at 5 in the morning

walked to marine parade
and realised the bus only comes on sundays and public holidays
sian lah
so took a cab home

reached home at 5.30
bathed and went to school for POL-ITE
no sleep at all

to cut a long story short,
we became POL-ITE touch rugby mens and mixed champions..
the girls were fourth, behind TP and NUS and NTU

it was really a test of enduance for me
felt really proud of us
we won every game
it was really hard-fought
we were the only team using the same people for the two catagories

and we had only one sub for the girls..
there was only four
but the girls did really well
they were so happy when they won the gold that they teared abit

the team seems really close now
the guys and the girls team.
and thank God for helping me though
i had cramps in the semis against TP

i thought i could not make it for the finals
but i did and we won!
2-1 against NTU for mens and 3-1 against ITE for mixed.

the girls game was probably most exciting..
TP vs RP
for the best poly touch team
TP led 3-1 at one point

but the RP girls fought back
to 3-2
and when zakiah scored the 3rd try, 3-3
the guys all jumped
even with our battered legs

the girls lost in sudden death
and they were upset
but in the end
we know we would get our revenge (:

i had sunburn and cuts on my body
i hated bathing

another funny incident
when i reached home,
my mum was going to scold me for not sleeping
but when she saw the gold medals

she just said "oh u won?"
managed to endure till 12
till i could take it no more and slept
i calulated and i lasted 38 hours w/o sleep
record for a pig like me

haha... worked yesterday at plaza
6pm to 2am
not bad la.. ate alot

got contact rugby training later on
sigh so lardy to go...

will update more when i can!
loads of things still unsaid...

health not good this days
probably due to bad weather and VERY late nights
that i have got this sore throat now
not affecting me too much

so kind of irrating to have this feeling in ur throat..
getting better though

Touch Rugby POL-ITE is this saturday
had full or a half day training on monday
my stamina was there

but i have to last at least 4 games on saturdays
i guess i have to control my game and bursts
we wanna win this POL-ITE
we might have been the whipping boys in contact

but touch is our forte
so we must win something

life is not simple
it would be nice if it could be
but it will never be.

there will always be complications
but den again,
humans are fickle

when there is nothing happening in their lives,
they complain.
when they got too many things going on in their lives,
they complain too.

seemingly this perfect balance will never be achieved.
sometimes we should sit down and pray.
for He has all the answers

i stumbled on this poem in my room last night while talking to ivy on the phone
its dated last year
its a prayer booklet
seens like fate that i found it

anyway i will share this poem with u guys before i go
take care everyone!

No Prayer Goes Unheard - Helen Steiner Rice

Often we pause and wonder,
When we kneel down and pray.
Can God really hear
The prayers we say.

But if we keep praying
And talking to Him,
He'll brighten the soul,
That was clouded and dim

And as we continue,
Our burden seems lighter
Our sorrow is softened.
And our outlook is brighter.

For though we feel helpless
And alone when we start,
Our prayer is the key
That opens the heart,

And as our hearts opens
The dear Lord comes in.
And the prayer that we felt
We could never begin
Is so easy to say
For the Lord understands
And gives us new strength
By the touch of His hands.
