monday and tuesday were rather normal - went to school, sat through the lectures and tutorials. Except for tuesday, when i woke up at 6.30am to amend my Business Correspondence letter for final draft submission. It has been a long time when i could have such discipline to wake up early and do my homework. Previously, i would tell myself to wake up early, yet failed badly. Tuesday was a long day, stayed in school until 7pm. Then managed to jio my friends to Simlim for a meal.

then came CNY's eve. Had work in the morning, but woke up at 7.30am! With only 15mins after brushing my teeth, washing my face, etc i had to cab down. Expensive by $3+ after the fare hike, but it's better than being late.

then wanted to have bkt with mn, but the kopitiam was closed. My apologies k =) Had Loy Kee instead, then went to chiong supermarkets. Had my dinner twice!! haha... enjoyed the day.

kayak is out for this entire month, because my army friends have a 18 day in-camp training (high key). Good luck to them, i wished i can join in too. It's even better if the ICT is outside Singapore, maybe ROC? lolz..

can i appeal to other friends to go for the 1-star kayak certification? The course is 9-5pm over a weekend, at People's Association Sea Sports Clubs (SSCs). The stuff covered include:

- types and parts of a kayak
- safety guidelines (eg kayak preparation, minimum of 3 kayaks, demarcation lines)
- practical (90% of the course): lifting/carrying, launching, forward/backward paddling, stopping, rotation, sideways movement using classic/J-draw techniques, stern rudder, rescue and/after capsize drills

i think the main psychological fear is in the capsize drills. Trust me, it's easy to capsize and perform recovery. Furthermore, it's done in groups of 3. Just do it properly, the friendly instructors are watching out for safety. And bring along sunblocks, because just 2 hours in the sun will turn anybody dark.

after the 1-star certification, the demarcation area will be in Kallang Basin. After 2-star, the demarcation area will be further at Esplanade, which means paddling all the way down to the merlion! What are you waiting for, just gather a group of 3-4 and go for training!
