Sorry for the lack of recent updates. Pretty much been Cabaling the whole holiday away, apart from the small other activities that have been going on. So here's a quick catch-up from where I left off till today's current status.
Finally managed to get a chance to go cable-ski-ing in Batam during the previous week. It's bloody cheap as compared to the one at East Coast Park. In fact, I only spent a total of about SG$100.00, which includes a whole day of cable ski-ing, lunch, dinner and the ferry and bus rides. Compare that to the per hour charging of the one at East Coast Park.
Anyway, although I have tried wakeboarding before [only once!!], I couldn't seem to get the hang of it at the start. Kept doing faceplants into the water as soon as my butt left the safety of the wooden starting platform. However, because of my highly adaptive senses, I was soon ski-ing my way around the pond after a couple of hours.
But 1 thing I realised is that cable ski requires much more arm power than wakeboarding. This is because of the sudden increase in pulling force when the cable is whipped around the corners by those metallic spinner thingys. Whereas in wakeboarding, the pressure on your arms is always consistent and you are the one who decides when you want to have more or less tension.
We practically spent the entire day whisking around the pond and fooling around with the grind and quarterpipe slopes. So much so that 1 week after, I have only just recovered from the peeling of my face due to our dear old sun. My head looked like an atlas for 2 whole days. But I do love the new tan though.
Kung Fu Panda
Went to watch Kung Fu Panda after a friend's birthday celebration dinner at Marina Square. And I've to say that I've never laughed so much in a cinema before. I don't know how they managed to pull it off but there was a genuinely funny scene almost every 5 minutes, and I'm not talking about those corny moments when the directors expect you to laugh but all you can say is 'errrrr....'.
That panda was really fat and funny. And we came out of the cinema with a new catch phrase "You must BELIEVE...", as said by the great Wuu Guii shifu. I won't provide any more spoilers for those who haven't seen it yet, but all I can say is you won't regret watching this cartoon in the movies.
I'll be working at the Sony booth again this coming PC Show [12 to 15th June] so if you're interested in getting any Sony products, don't be shy and come on down and let me earn commission off you. Haha. I'll be there from Thursday to Sunday and if I see anyone I know who bought Sony products from the show but didn't go through me... Heads are going to roll...
Well that's all for now, it's time for me to get back to my gaming. Cya soon. I will try to update after I come back from the PC show.
