Today we did a new route along the river, this time heading left towards Geylang instead of the usual which is towards the Helix Bridge. The plan was 8km but I think it actually amounted to almost 7 instead.
Earlier that evening I had also been asked to pull aside a few NB Runners for a quick photo shoot for a few upcoming write ups, so I got Ivy, Paul, and Sebastian to help out first, next week will be a few more, but here's some photos I quite like.

Met up with Colin, Al and Calvin today to check out a floorball shop in Chinatown. Ever since our game on Monday, the guys have been seriously looking into the sport and have started searching for equipment to get started.
They chanced upon a shop that required us to make a reservation and we made our way down during lunch to have a look.
The shop was tiny but had a few pretty cool stuff, admittedly I'm not at that level yet to feel overly excited but it I was digging the range. The price was not cheap but then again KM is more expensive if you think about it.
Lunch was at the food court below, fish soup since I wasn't familiar with most of the eats in the area.
My initial plan for the evening was to head to RD for a run around Bishan track, but cause we were later informed that Edmund's birthday was on the same day, plans changed and Eve, Ivy and I decided to head to Novena instead to celebrate Edmund's 62nd birthday.
Since the initial workout regime was to do intervals at the track, Ivy and I did something similar along the road from Novena to Bishan and back, running hard at 1km, followed by a slow jog for 300m, then picking up the pace again...I think we did a total of 8 sets, not bad.
Though it was very last minute, Sebastian had managed to round out a lot of people willing to chip in for the man's birthday, and before you know it, there were 40 over people involved, and not only was cake provided, a special gift of an iPad Mini was also given to the happy chap.
Overall it was a good run and a good celebration, glad to have been there to witness it. =)

I can't remember the last time I visited Delifrance, but I sure remembered how much I enjoyed the seafood delight (now called seafood d'sire or something).
Thing is the recipe has changed, the shrimp is no longer there, it feels like biting into artificial crab stick which is...yeck.

I joined Colin, Calvin, Al along with Sharon last evening at Mountbatten for a game of floorball, which Colin had arranged with his friends from NTU. It was my first time attempting the game and I didn't really know what to expect from it.
The game turned out to be a lot tougher than expected, running is one thing, intervals, another, but keeping the ball in control, wah that's just next level difficult! I think I did okay in the stamina department, though I was pretty tired and the heat in the court was a bit uncomfortable.
Colin's friend Jamie was kind enough to give us pointers during the game to explain what needed to be done to help defend and attack during a match. All of us managed to walk away with one goal that day though I think mine was pretty tyco. =P
Overall a good match, glad to have taken part, will see if time permits me to attend more in future.
