Table tennis idiot.

Posted in down memory lane, growing up on August 20, 2011 by twotwoeight

Was watching some high school kids at a table tennis tournament and I broke into a smile remembering how I ended up in a table tennis competition myself.  It was back during varsity days when we had inter-faculty games, and for some reason or another, our faculty needed a pair for the girl’s game minutes before the match was due to start.  And so, Lish and I were “cajoled” into representing our faculty on the spot despite wails from us that we had never played before in our lives!  Needless to say, we lost, but the most embarrassing part of it was that we were so bad that our opponents actually had to stop and teach us how to play! 😛

Well years later, I’m still a table tennis idiot, I wonder if Lish has mastered the game? 😉

Addendum

By special request…ahem!

Enjoy!!! 😉

of musicals and memories

When you’re sixteen going on seventeen waiting for life to start

Somebody kind who touches your mind will suddenly touch your heart

The first time I watched Sound of Music was back when I was in primary school.  I remember back then, TV2 airs long movies with a break after two hours for the night news.  And if you were still awake after that, you could catch the ending of the show. I usually fall asleep before the news ends, but I distinctively remember staying up for the ending of Sound Of Music.  And for many many more times after that.  I have probably watched it more than 10 times up till now and know all the songs by heart!  I don’t know…there’s just something about musicals that captivates me.  I marvel at the way the stories are told through song and dance and the way everything is choreographed to fall together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.  Well, a friend of mine would beg to differ — after watching the movie version of The Phantom of the Opera with her, she lamented that there was too much singing and why couldn’t they just speak the words! 😉

Am glad I managed to catch the stage version of Sound Of Music last weekend — it was indeed nourishing for the soul, especially after the trying week I had.  Although it had its differences from the movie version, but nonetheless watching it on stage evokes a different feeling altogether.  Hhmm, maybe it’s time for a rerun…time to dig out that DVD…

I wonder when I can fulfill my dream of catching Phantom of the Opera on stage? 😉

REAL cartoons

Posted in down memory lane, love on May 29, 2011 by twotwoeight

I remember when I was little we’d look forward to Saturdays because then there’ll be cartoons the whole morning, and popo will make fried beehoon for lunch.  And my sister and I will happily plonk ourselves in front of the TV eating beehoon on a stool.

And then there are weekday evening cartoons (if my memory doesn’t fail me, either 5.30pm or 7.30pm) like these, which are my absolute favourites!

I used to have a sticker book for Thundercats! :p

Voltron —  I have always liked this better than Transformers!

And who can not love Dungeons and Dragons…I actually watched the first episode on YouTube just now 😉

80’s cartoons are awesome!
