The Dance Floor Is A Battlefield

A crowd like this, it's going to be sick. You need to work some magic
Bring on the fight and stand ready to die.
I know, I know, a crowd like this, it's going to be a battle
If it's a war they want, a war they shall receive
First Coy warriors marching down the line
Keshik warriors dancing all around

Christmas Speed

What is the season of Christmas really about? Eating? Praying? Showing love to the less fortunate? Spending time with loved ones? Or maybe finding an excuse to party. Whatever the case may be, Christmas is the time we celebrate the birth of Christ and we have so many ways of celebrating with Jesus because he is the reason we have this holiday.
On Christmas eve, some friends and I had planned to spend time at ECP after Mass @ St Pat's. However, due to some unforeseen circumstances we ended up in a hawker place. But hey, Mary and Joseph had nowhere to go when she was about to give birth to Jesus. The only place available was a stable and they humbly accepted it.

Went travelling around after that eating. From Bak Chor Mee to Toast and coffee to Prata. I can't help it, being a soldier has rapidly increased my appetite. In total, checked my meter and apparently I drove a total of about 150km in 2 days. Feels good to be behind the wheel again!

Key events going down this week.
  1. 16Km route march
  2. Drill Competition
  3. Discovery centre visit

Home Near The Christmas Tree

National Education Day will be celebrated this week in my camp and I've been assigned i/c of the event in my company. I need to prepare a showcase and I'm currently planning a skit, dance and montage of photos of the company events from the beginning of our enlistment. Hope everything goes according to plan!

"Corey 'I have 4 tickets to this gay party at Butter Factory. Anyone wanna come I don't want to go alone!'

Nikki 'You go lah. You're gay enough for four tickets!'"

'Christmas is coming up
There's nothing more I want
Than to be at home
Sitting near the Christmas Tree...'

Everything Only In Time

Completed my 'Situational Test' aka Sit Test this last week in camp. Hence the late book out.

Immediately rushed down to Gillian's home for our Lector's Christmas party. A nice start to the festive season especially since I'm undergoing military training and won't get many opportunities to celebrate. I guess we all have different walks of life. Drove down to East Coast beach after for supper with Kelvin.

Attended Mass this morning with my bro (Praying for you Addison that you prepare well and ace your papers this week!) and then met Corey and Bob for steamboat and dessert at Everything With Fries! A belated birthday celebration for Bob and Corey who has just finished his National Service liability whereas I have just begun mine. All in all, I'm very thankful for the opportunity to even book out and experience freedom and spend time with family and friends which we so easily take for granted.
