a finisher



yay... i'm a finisher!!! :D 42.195k... in 6hr 50min. I'm happy.
Lots of teeth gritting, groaning inside... Dousing myself with
cups of water, slathering Deep Heat on my legs...wrist band
soaked, feet burning. The worst was the nausea...The last 2 km
was crazy. But it was the best. I caught a third wind and
flew to the finish. Crossing the finish line was really something.
I was almost in tears. I couldn't believe i made it. Then again,
i was shouting inside my head, "i did it, i did it!!!" Another
tear jerker was seeing the 42k engraved on my medal.
Collecting the Finisher's tee... oh boy!!! hhahaa... On
previous years, i see people hobbling around in pain,
wearing their Finisher's tees... I looked at them with envy.
Yea. And this year i get to hobble with them and wear the
tee. wahahhahhaa.... i'm so happy.
So now, at home, my leg muscles are screaming. My left
calf is so tight, my glutes are threatening to cramp up
anytime, my hamstrings are aching, my quads are sore.
But i'm happy. yes.... i'm a finisher. i did it. YAY!!! :D

Proverbially, you can't....

... have it both ways
...have your cake and eat it
...get blood out of a stone
...make an omelette without breaking eggs
...make a silk purse out of a sow's ear
...run with the hare and hunt with the hounds
...teach an old dog new tricks
...judge a book by its cover
...shake hands with a clenched fist
...tell which way the train went, by looking at the tracks
...win arguements by interrupting speakers
...have a rainbow without rain
...pick up two melons with one hand
...fool all of the people all of the time
...sip soup with a knife
...see the sky through a bamboo tube
...measure the sea with a shell
...cheat an honest man
...catch a cub without going into the tiger's den

-schott's original miscellany, one of my fav books...


This is a teflon coated foot for a sewing machine. And i want it.
It'll make plastic coated fabric glide through. Oh yes. Slide under...
like butter..

singapore biennale 2008






I took a while to take my Converse hightops off then slipped
on bedroom slippers and padded through the white tunnel.
I emerged into a white room and the view took my breath
away... really. I was pretty overwhelmed. The scene demanded
silence so i sat down quietly on the beanbags and just
looked out into the 'distance', mouth agape. It was AMAZING...
i didn't want to leave. An 18 metre long installation by
Hans Op de Beeck, housed inside Shigeru Ban's Containart Pavilion.



I had to dare myself to sit through the whole clip. I never liked
the idea of being in the middle of the sea in a boat... I sat alone
inside a container, watching it. The sound of water sloshing
was quite scary. Then the boat flipped and laid on its side,
vision was half above water, half below. I didn't like it one bit.
Anxious, scared... like i was struggling in the water, drowning.
Almost cried. The boat went bottom up next and it felt slightly
better cos it was quiet and calm underwater. When i lifted the
curtain to step outside, i was SO glad it was over.I was safe, safe
on dry land. Oh boy....
Floating, 2000 by Yuan Goang-Ming.




Never thought i'd dare to be so close to them... They were
SOOOOOO gross. Looking at them in pictures already grossed
me out, made my hair stand on end. Climbing the stairs to
the 3rd floor of city hall, i spotted a maggot. Braced myself for
more and yes, at the top of the stairs, a party of maggots...
twisting, turning... joyous munching... slime dripping...
knees went soft, almost gagged. Tried to bypass them to get
to the other side of the room. It was in vain..there was no other
way. Took a deep breath and stepped between them, praying
they wouldn't slime me. Oh man.... i was squirming so much
inside. But when i was on my way out, i didn't feel as bad. I
even let one of them suck on my shoe. A lady reached down to
pat one of them, but oh no, i wouldn't go so far.
Maggots, 2004 Pham Ngoc Duong


This is me on Woodlands Ave 12. I travelled across Singapore
in 5 sec. I stood on clouds, on the airstrip in Changi, the waters
off PSA. I should have labelled CEFC Woodlands. Didn't think
about that. Argh. Now i want to go back. A real, physical tagging
on a Google Earth map. Now how cool is that.
Singapore, 2008 Wit Pimkanchangapong

straying...

i couldn't resist blogging about these blogs, straying from the
usual craft stuff. Blogs by Singaporeans on fashion & stuff. I suddenly
feel pretty inspired! I am a chronic t-shirt n jeans girl. Sneakers,
or flip-flops. That's my 'office-wear'. So yeah, allow me to record
the url-s of these blogs...

Ahhh... Craftzine and my 2nd fabric package came
together!! *Super!* I got more vinyl coated fabric,
i'm so in love with it!! A heavier fabric with robots
on it and a lovely grey fabric with cute little dots.
The linen straps i got are really tough... and precious. I
haven't been able to find it on this island. Haven't decided
what to do with them straps. hmmm.... All these from
my friend Leslie's etsy store, go visit! :)
