The opening ceremony for Hall Olympics was held on Thursday, with an inter-hall cheerleading competition @ SRC (Sports & Recreation Centre). As Jigg & I opened the door of the old basketball court (multi purpose hall), the first sound we heard was the dunno-what band performing. Doesn’t understand a word what the singer was trying to sing, but nevertheless, it’s an effort made.
Standing at one corner of the not-so-huge court, we desperately looked around for familiar faces from Hall 15. After 15 mins, finally saw a few, but they were sitting at the other corner of the hall, and it’s extremely difficult to make our way through with the large groups of supporters from the various halls sitting all around. At that little corner where we were, we could only manage to catch a glimpse of the various cheerleading performances.
The first to perform was Hall 1. Their actions were very hyper and swift. I was amazed by the way they formed the pyramid. It was perfect! The next few teams weren’t as good, until it was finally Hall 15’s turn. Our team started practising only 2 weeks before the competition. Given only 2 weeks, it’s not a simple task to have such a good performance, even though all are old-birds. They were as good as Hall 1, and I have to mention this: the girls in the team are all very chio! It’s a well-known fact that Hall 15 has a lot of pretty girls! (That’s excluding me lar.. lol)
Left the hall after Hall 15’s performance. Decided to go back to room early as the last shuttle bus service was in half an hour’s time.
At approximately 2230hrs, QH asked if we want prata supper. Having supper is part and parcel of hall life. (Gonna get fat in a matter of time) And in about half hour’s time, QH & RD reached our room with our supper. How can we miss out movies when having supper? So they (I watched Naruto instead) decided to watch The Forgotten. Joined them halfway through, but I fell asleep while lying on the bed. Woke up when they left, felt so energetic that I decided to surf net and chat for a while before I finally fell asleep at 3+am.
Expectedly, I couldn’t wake up the next day. Yeah I skipped the 0830hrs lecture. Haha..
After lecture, me and my project mates (Phee, QH, RD & ZM) went shopping. Sian leh.. 4 guys & I’m the only gal. lol! Shopped from Bugis to Chinatown, where we went for the contact lens survey @ People’s Park Centre. Had claypot rice for dinner. Yum yum! Haven’t had claypot rice @ Chinatown for ages! Was a rushed dinner though. We were supposed to reach Hotel Rendezvous for a seminar by 1830hrs, but we were late. Hiakz.. the seminar wasn’t very interesting though.. Felt like they were conning people. Both the speakers are entrepreneurs, and one of them is currently a Marketing Masters student @ NUS. If you can earn enough by doing import/export like what you’ve said, why then are you still studying? Crap!
Anyway.. went for supper (again..) @ Selegie. Heard that Selegie’s beancurd is superb, this is the FIRST time I’ve been there. Haha.. Was really nice! The beancurd is so SMOOTH! Yummy!!
By the time I reached home, it was already 2300hrs. I realised I really miss my bed. *sob*
