Wah last sunday was the race now then i blog it :D
cuz only yesterday the organiser photos come out mah :D
alrite to fill u up the mr Beng and 2 frens took part in the olympic distance mixed relay.
simply say one swim, another bike and another run, get it?
for the uninitiated :D, mixed means got male and female.
ok at 1st the weather was not bad, abit warm, but since i was the swimmer it doesnt matter ;)
then came the rain, sudden downpour, so heavy the grass field turned into a mud field within minutes (am i exaggerating??) with choppy sea and strong wind.
i tot: WTF?? my 1st time swimming in open sea competition and this happened???
in the rain we couldnt hear a shit what the MC is talking abt?! so we waited, and the volunteers there can help us as they oso don know a shit what will the organisers do next. totally low moral mann...
anyway the rain kinda tired out after abt an hour and we made our way into the transition area. from there we tried to find out what the organisers will do. postpone? (not likely) cancel? (they better not)
ended up they delay the race and took out the swim leg(!wtf!) and modified the whole course for safety reasons. ( ok i buy that but i'm still disappointed and pissed)
Original course: Swim 1.5km, Bike 40km, Run 10km
Modified course: Run(on beach) 400m, Bike 20km, Run 5km
now u see why i'm pissed. trained so hard in the pool and sea just to run 400m on the beach????
hahahahahaha! wad a joke
anyway our team came in 6th and to complete the pissed off part? the 400m run on the beach has no timing taken!
and he's off!
and next the champion chip (wad a nice name for an electronic tag!) is tagged to KK our super biker!!!
too fast for the photographer
next on line is WY go go go!
Ops, already passed finish line :D
notice the photos have the buy it at some XXX website??? no way i'll buy, cheapest photo costs $8.80! siao!
anyway kena arrow to recite the national pledge at company's observance ceremony, the mr Beng will do his best to siam!!! :D
ok for some fun here, my colleague sent us one very nice game
the game is abt throwing a paper plane and how far u can land it. try to get it out of the window and watch out for the fan! mr Beng only managed a mere 99.217m do let me know if u manage a 100 :D click on the screenshots to play the game.
thats all for this post. bye!

In local markets one can pay between 2 to 3 dollars for a reasonably size watermelon.
BUT will u pay for a higher priced watermelon of a similar size?
And whats price of the most expensive watermelon u've seen?
This melons (from Japan, with their own individual box!) I saw at at supermarket in Liang Court sells for.....
WTF! I can buy God-knows-how-many watermelons with that money!
But its not the most expensive. My colleague who has been to Japan saw watermelons at a price of ¥50,000! thats about S$ 625!!!!!
Tell me about the expensive watermelons u've seen ya?
2 odd shaped watermelons:
The pyramid-watermelon and the already famous square watermelon.

I've really no time to post as I've lot of things to do. Heres an update of wad the mr Beng did recently :D
We went on a trip to this resort on the 27th of June. We decided to stay at their one bedroom villa and its very easy to do all the bookings via the resort website.
All the ferry bookings were even settled by their staff :D
ahhh... finally we see Nongsa ferry terminal
The design of the terminal is very ethnic Indonesian design with the colours, statues all the way to the pavement!
We dare not take photos of the terminal in case the customs there might mistake us as terrorists!! :D
There resort staff there ready with the resort minibus to bring us :D
We crossed a bridge and i snapped another shot of the terminal.
Upon reaching the resort main gate theres a security post and checks were done. :O
Resort lobby. Theres the resort lounge area and also KTV and a pub at the basement and 2nd floor.
Upstairs are all the rooms and 5th floor theres a spa.
What are these cute little ???? I still can't figure out what animal it is. Can anyone tell me??
Theres free 24hrs buggy transport to our villa (which is great!) cuz the villas are situated quite a distance away from the main building. The villas are built right up to the sea.
Below our balcony.
Lets look ard the villa :)
Theres a dining area and small kitchen area.
Living room with tv, sick of tv, den watch sea, den tv, den sea...... ;D
Next to the bedroom. With seaview too.
I like the bed and the mosquito net :)
And the bathroom. ops! only took photos of the bathtub. :b
After happily exploring the whole villa we decided to take a walk ard the resort. The beach nearby has a water sports centre for all your water sports needs from snorkeling to banana boats and jet skis.
As we approached the main building guess what we found?
Theres a small area near the swimming pool where they kept some animals like squirrels and birds like peacocks, parrots, chickens & turkeys.
I would suggest you apply some insect (or mosquito) repellent if u were to go there. ;)
I like the free form swimming pool with a deep 3m end :D
Theres also a small herbs garden. Again repellent recommended.
We had our dinner at the kellong restaurant and we have no trouble getting vegetarian food :D
The next day's lunch was at the resort coffeehouse.
Interesting was the Ice kachang. the atap seeds are dyed green :O the dessert was ok except its abit too sweet.
We decided to go to Nongsa city to take a walk and see the local life.
We went to a local mall, Matahari.
Right next to the KFC is BFC (?) Best Fried Chicken. :D
Teh O Beng. I'll rename it Teh Of Beng :D
Wah my post very long liao. In short its worth going there for a short quick break from Singapore' hectic life. The Mr Beng will be back (to the villa again of course ;D).
