Saturday
Went to pick up LiXiang, went to Marina Square for The Cellular. Luckily there was not much cars around the Suntec’s City circle, and I managed to negotiate the circle easily, nowadays negotiating circle is not in the driving test anymore. I swear I told the ticketing counter I want a 6.35pm show, but he gave me the slot at 4pm one, and I didn’t realise it till I went in at 6.35pm. I went to buy the tickets at 4.15pm, it is very unlikely that I will buy tickets for a 4pm show, sometimes need abit of common sense. This is the 2nd time that happened to me. Luckily the cinema was not crowded managed to get “free seatings” in the middle row.

The movie lasted around 90 minutes, the show was not bad, quite a unique plot and I think Nokia contributed alot of money to the movie for advertisement.

Slept till 1pm for the first time on a Saturday afternoon. Went to Funan after that to pre-order my Half-Life 2: CE ($129) while my brother pre-ordered the standard version ($69.90). Had a late lunch at Swensens, they have a new promotion menu and the mixed grill is nice.

Walked to Suntec City later to get my Samsung S500 phone serviced. During the week in camp, my fone’s display(internal and external) goes dead on me for 3 days. Have to wait 2 working days to get it repaired, kinda sucky because Nokia only takes 2 hours. Going to get a Nokia 3120 if that phones dies on my again.

Saturday
Went to trim my hair at Everton Park, finally can have at least some shape. Drove my mom’s new car back home after MIA for 4 months.

Met up with Johnson, Jackey and LiXiang for dinner to commemorate Johnson’s first book out. Suppose to have more people, but end up got put aeroplane. Anyway he was out on Thursday because of Fever and the sick bay is overloaded, thus he can come back to Singapore. Had dinner at NYDC, first time there is Mushroom Monster available, ordered 2 portions of it. Saw Ray outside Mac Donald’s, so happened he is also in Pegasus Platoon 3 and that makes him my cousin platoon mate, really a small world.

Saturday
Woke up at 6am and reached Pasir Ris Park at 7.20am for a 5km Life Run organised by Provost Unit. It was a cooling weather to run, cloudy day. If not for us School Of Provost (SOP) trainees which has a strength of 78 people, I think you will see very little people participating for the run. Run ended at around 9am. I can say I put in effort to run the 5km, jogged continuously for the 5km and sprinted when coming to the end point. And after the run due to some fucknuts who put in no effort, we got scolded by our CO and I think Monday we are going to get it.

Had breakfast with my mom at Maxwell market, saw David Gan, the famous hairdresser, he is short. lol

Friday
Had lunch with my family at a Chinese restaurant in King’s Hotel. The service sucks because for 20 minutes we are like glass, no one bothered to serve us utensils and to take our order. In terms of food, only 3 dishes are good, the rest cannot make it.

Suppose to watch New Police Story with my parents, but end up meeting my platoon mates for dinner at Marina South. 14 people turned up, more than those who booked in for the re-ippt/soc. LOL

Resident Evil: Apocalypse

Met up with LiXiang at Great World City to watch Resident Evil: Apocalypse. The movie is 2 hours long, it is much more action packed than the first one but the storyline kinda simple as compared to the first part. Conclusion, I still prefer the first Resident Evil. The ending of the movie ended with Project Alice. Anyone played the game care to share how the storyline goes. I am sure there will be a Resident Evil 3 in the movies.

Had dinner at Zion Road Hawker Center before walking to Tiong Bahru Market that area to meet up with Laily and Serene. They worked till 9pm+. Suppose to eat again together with them, but end up watch them eat and I just ordered a drink. Their boss also came down for a chat and he paid for my drink also. Quite a friendly chap.
