The Total Immersion (TI) swimming class finally ended last week..
From can't-swim-at-all to swimming-1.5km-twice-a-week, I guess that's an achievement!
Still contemplating whether to proceed on with level 3 TI training..

It's been a week full of ups and downs..
At first, the daily presentation was badly criticized by the Manager on all the little little things..
After that, compliments from the Director, such as "u understood what I want", "I like coaching smart people" etc and he asked for personal HP number..
I guess, if the Director doesn't care, why would he even spend time coaching?
Anyway, I doubt many engineers get such privilege..
Good or bad u say? I decided to take it positively...

Just before the end of the day, the Supervisor mentioned that another manager feedback to him some good remarks for the performance..
Though it was unclear of the content, it made the day.. :)

Next new year resolution

Oops..! Looks like I failed my KPI of 3 posts per week.. :P But nvm, nothing much to post so might as well don't waste bandwidth. Haha. Went for a swim this morning again and made full use of my tempo trainer and watch! Was doing a 1.7s stroke and did 1.5km swim in 1.5 hours. Not exactly a fast swim but nevertheless a good start.. Having toying with the idea of setting triathlon as my new goal. Triathlon: 1.5km swim 40km cycle 10km run My plan now is to at least be able to do all 3 items separately. First is to perfect the swim, follow by the run then lastly cycling. If possible, I might want to do stan-chart half marathon nx yr! Let's see how everything goes now, and set appropriate oak accordingly. :)

I'm not loving it

To whom it may concern,

I would like to comment on the cleanliness and the hygiene standard of Mcdonalds outlet at IMM.

As I was having my usual "TGIF" dinner with you guys, to my horror, I found a live cockroach "loitering" next to my table.
I am very disappointed and totally grossed out by the sight of it, I doubt i will ever visit again.
It is unacceptable to see such incident in a health/cleanliness-conscious society like Singapore.
McDonalds is a great hangout place for the young and adult, all the more its hygienic standard should not be compromised.
I sincerely hope that this feedback will be able to reach out to the relevant party (McDonalds) and appropriate actions will be taken to prevent such unpleasant event to ever happen again.

...And I'm not loving it...

Best regards,

Swim like a fish

Finally! I swim in a big pool..
Though I have started my first lesson since 3 months back, I don't dare to go into big pool because I couldn't breathe well.
Today, I started with my single-sided breathing drill and integrated it into my full swim..
Nevertheless, it's not a proper one yet, e.g. bilateral breathing/strokes/kicks etc..
Got the kick of it and finally made it to the big pool!
I am so gonna enjoy it!
