欢迎光临

终于决定搬家了。。不,不。。不是真的搬家,而是我个人的部落格搬家了。买了个账号,部落格终于登记有了自己的家,虽然其实还是“寄人篱下”的。。 哈哈。。

其实我很久没写blog了。看看我之前的部落格 — http://snowzyworld.blogspot.sg/ , 最后的entry是3月22日,我的Krabi行。我有整整一年没写了。间中其实心情很复杂。在这blogspot里其实有很多很多的drafts,都是只写了一半,或写了在等自己上载相关的照片等等等。 在这一年里不知怎的,就是没有心情写了,一丁点的动力都没有。就连跑步也开始意兴阑珊,不再享受了。

今年就对自己说不能再这样子了。我要找回当时的魄力,不能再这样的懒散,整个人像失去了灵魂似的。。。

好了,在我还在整理思绪的当儿,说说这新的家吧。

虽然搬了进来,家还是空荡荡的。还没想好主题,家具也仍在添置中。该添置全新的还是把旧的也一起搬来呢?真的头大了。或许你有注意到一些旧的东西出现在这里 (old posts from year 2008, gosh!)。。当时就想把旧的都搬来然后关闭,可是搬了一些blogs过来后又开始有别的想法。。然后又停下了。 女人啊。。你就这么的三心二意,优柔寡断吗?

或许下来的几个月都会游走于要与不要之间。不过我会尽量地开始勤劳写blog。

欢迎光临寒舍  (●’◡’●)

我们结婚了!

这个blog虽然有点儿迟了(almost 2 months..oops) 可是better late than never。
My Dream Wedding
我梦中的婚礼。。蓝蓝的海,白白的沙地上筑起一个很大的白色帐篷。帐篷里花香处处, 有白的, 黄的, 粉红的,各自争香斗丽。宾客们手里拿着一杯盛满着香浓香槟的酒杯,开怀地畅饮言谈。西阳夕下,清凉的海风清吹,海浪奏起了悦耳的音乐。。我俩的海誓山盟。。一切尽在不言中。
Our Wedding (23。03。2013)
没有奢侈的排场,没有华丽的礼服,没有马尔代夫美丽的海滩,只有满满的温情与爱。。。和酷热的天气,微微的海风。。一个充满夏日气息的婚礼,是的。我们结婚了!
The solemnisation area – by The Love Caravan
不铺张,一切从简。很西式的婚礼。没有结婚常有的礼俗只保留了敬茶仪式。我们没有拍婚纱照,没有找风水师看日子(日子是我自己选的因为23032013,农历12022013,超棒的号码),没有过大礼,没有迎娶, no gatecrash,没有新娘花车,我连wedding photomontage 都懒得做, 不过我倒是做了个我们一起旅游的 photomontage。当天的婚礼程序也是很随性的,所以也搞得我的亲戚有点不知所云。。哈哈。。真的不好意思。
除了很多的DIY,主要的设计来自The Love Caravan who provided me with the flowers set up at the solemnisation area, tables deco and my lovely bridal bouquet。主题是类似巴厘岛海边风情,颜色以Tiffany 蓝,褐,白, 黄/金为主。
I was really in awe when I see this. Perfect!
Lovely decorations – DIYs and the many ideas from Chris
场地选在Changi Beach Club, 因为喜欢那小小的沙滩,很适合主题。
Buffet in the air-con function room for the relatives
Beach alfresco dining – BBQ + buffet
就这样好友们为我们俩精心打造出了独一无二的夏日海滩婚礼。

 p/s: I just realised I’ve not update my blog since last year September and my first blog for 2013 was not about my wedding but my first open water swim… hmmm.. can see which is more important ya.. wahahaha.

第一次的1。5公里

我整夜辗转难眠,心一直扑通扑通地跳着。。啊~~~ 好辛苦啊。紧张, 因为紧张。。 今天一早就要参加我生平第一个游泳竞赛。从来没在大海游泳过的我第一次就挑战1。5公里! 真是疯了。

因为出国没能参与主办单位规定的游泳测试,最后得签署indemnity form, 若有任何意外主办单位免除任何责任。我从来都不觉得我泳术好, 只是最近学会了蛙式而比较有自信。 这也仅限在游泳池里。辽阔的大海, 美丽却似暗藏危机。。老公看我忧心忡忡就建议圣淘沙海滩的试游。

真的还好去试游了。。。。

当我一下水我就慌了,慌得一塌糊涂,什么泳术都乱了。没几下就停下紧紧地抓着主办单位已设立好的泳道绳索,而且缺氧似的大力喘气。

一旁的老公:”为什么这么快就停? 别游这么快嘛。不要慌!”
我: “可是浪很大, 好累!!”
老公: “浪那里大了? 这样算好了。东海岸会更惨。不要慌。。就像在游泳池那样的游。”

没办法,隔天就是大日子了,还是得硬着头皮继续。圣淘沙Tanjong beach 海滩长375m,来回750m, 也就是说我得游两圈。乱七八糟地游了第一个750m, 终于理出了在大海游泳的窍门,克服了心理障碍,再游了多一个750m, 结束了试游。

在这样的一个游泳竞赛, 最好的游泳样式是自由式。他们说自由式比较efficient。这样式我不怎么行,所以还是游我比较自在的蛙式,虽然慢,可是现阶段能安全完成是我的目标。

在往圣淘沙的路上心仍无法安定下来。已经不那么怕了,反而担心无法完成。来到海边,看到很多兴致勃勃的人们,全部都是迫不及待地想往水里冲,证明自己的实力。那气氛真的很赞,我也开始有所期待。

老公参加的是3公里赛程,先开始。我的是一个小时后。 我就自己静静地等着。也没去找我也有参加的朋友,就只想自己一个慢慢地的把心平伏,然后一直重复着我行的, 我行的。渐渐地我开始相信我能完成, 目标挽成不是最后一个就行! 真是阿Q正传。

铃声响起, 开始了! 只见大家都开始往前冲。 我与刚结识的女生互相勉励后也开始了我第一次1。5公里的赛程。一路上我紧紧地游靠近泳道绳索,以防万一。因为我游的是娃式,所需的空间比较大所以踢到了不少游在我后头的人,真的很不好意思。自由泳的泳手们有时因为没留意到我,也不小心打到我。 比较气人的是有一个泳手因为我档了他的去路,狠狠地拉我的脚。本能反映,踢他,抓着绳索,喘口气再继续游。

就这样来回的游,不知不觉我完成了两圈了。跑上岸奔向终点时我一路傻傻的微笑着。完成赛程的我是兴奋的, 雀跃的。

原来我真的可以。

Happily Ever After 😀

Last run of the year — SCMS

Last run of the year, and it was not a good run.

Under train because weather has been too erratic, raining so frequently.. well… I must admit, I was quite half-hearted in training for SCMS.  Have not been doing much long run too, as after a few km, I started having stitches on my left.  It happened again last Sunday.

430am, I was walking from my home to the MRT Station.  Applaud the organiser & SMRT.  Finally, 24hrs  MRT services to shuttle us runners to the venue. This is a much better way to shuttle us than buses.

630am, Sentosa.. gosh, there’s so many people.  As expected, the start of the run was slow, but I started with quite a nice pace and was enjoying the cool morning breeze until I reached the route toward Tanjong Beach where you need to make a turn to Palawan beach.  The route here was just too narrow, all runners came almost to a stop.  Either a walk or a slow jog waiting for your turn to break through to make the turn.  This was the 2km mark, you have to turn here as there’s a split time check here.  When it’s my turn to make the turn and on to much freedom, I turned my head and wow.. all I can see were a sea of greens & blues (colours of the event tee) packed to the end of the road till I can’t even see the end…  I looked at my watch, 18mins.. I am 5 mins behind target. I started to speed up and managed to reduce the backlog to 3 mins.

I still remember the joy I had last year when I ran through USS.  The atmosphere there was somehow great, with Puss & gang cheering.  This year there’s Optimus Prime as well.. haa.  But, it can’t be compared with last year.. this year the cheers seems to have lessen..

By the time we were out of Sentosa, we had completed 10km. I started to experience a sharp pain on my left. Arrgh… the stitches started.  I slowed down, at time to almost a stop to stretch.  I breathe slow and long… not much use.

Uphill ahead.. I’ve no strength to run up this time (unlike last year), I started to walk up.. there’s total 3 major uphill (up the expressway)… after the 10km route marker, I saw none.  I wonder how far more? My run become a slow jog and occasional walk, still nursing the stitches.

The next route marker was the 16km, thought they state in the runner’s booklet there marker at every km?? Actually, the route marker was quite big, if to place it along the expressway, (think only 2 lanes were blocked off for the run) it will leave no space for the runners and there will be more bottleneck.

Finally, it’s the esplanade, less than 1 km to the finish line.  Many runners are now walking, walking real slow.  It’s a challenge to cut through them actually.  There’s so many people.  I saw 2 gals walking leisurely (blocking actually) and they were sharing one ear piece listening to music..  Why nobody wants to run to the finish line? Even if you’ve been walking, why not just start to run to the finish line?

As I approached the finish line, the route got narrower as it was separated to the different distance — 42km, 21km, 10km, 5km…  runners need to run to their respective distance end point.   I had wanted to cheong, but I had to slow down because 2 guys just right in front of me, was walking slowly to the finish line..

Organiser, much to consider. Biggest event ever, yes but can you handle? If you can’t block off the whole road for a wider space, than forget about being the biggest.

Spot the Difference

都说一分钱一分货了。。。
See the 2 shots taken with the same settings.. no adjustment made…
Using a China-brand lens filter ordered online costing me around S$10.  A standby filter because my Hoya UV filter crushed while en-route to Nepal last year 😦
Anyway, there’s much flare here especially from the side with strong lights around , and the photo was over-exposed!
This using a S$100+ lens filter and what a big difference!! Still some flare here but very much minimized. Believed with a lens hood attached should be able to block out the flare since my lens is only a 18-200mm.
