All student teachers have to go through this self-discovery course which is known as the Meranti Project. Meranti is the name of a tree that is native to Singapore.
Spread over two days, the project covered issues such as National Education, self discovery and it kind of bonded the team together. It was a dread to go to school on the early morning of Saturday and Sunday. But it turned out to be pretty meaningful.

So I signed up for the challenge again this year and almost chickened out. I mean, I attended a course in the morning from 8.30am to 5.30pm and I had to travel from Tampines at 6.30am. I was really really really tired.
So somehow I managed to push myself and went ahead. I drew Lot 5 which was a killer!!!! Even before the start of the challenge, I had to rock-climb up the wall and it was only then that I realised that I had not done anything like this for a long time. A little shaky initially but things got easier eventually.
There was one guy who hung on the wall for 100 minutes!!!! Yes, that is more than an hour, 1 hour 40 minutes to be exact. He got Lot 6 and the emcee said it was one of the ‘good lot’.
Last year’s champion came back and only managed to stay there for 70 minutes. Me? I did 15 minutes.
Next year again? Maybe… because the goodies bag is really good!

I dropped by the Sold.sg’ s HQ last Thursday and was introduced to the entertainment shopping website. It was launched in July 2010 and has now 34,000 registered users!!
A variety of products can be found at Sold.sg. From PS3, iPad 2, iPhone, Wii to Kindle which cannot be found in Singapore.
There we have Qiuyan, one of the founders, telling us more about how Sold.sg works.
The bidding price start from zero. Each time an user places a bid, the bid price increases by 15cents and countdown timer increase by up to 20 seconds per bid. Bid is made using tokens which can be purchased from the website. Each token costs 75cents. So when the countdown timer reaches zero, the one who made the last bid wins the auction.
Why not try it today?
Go to Sold.sg where treasures can be found!

Hurray!!! We are done with Runway NIE!!! As part of NIE’s National Day Celebration, NIE’s freshies have to come up with a costume and have a model to showcase it on 8th August 2011.
So basically, I was the model for my team, S.P.A.R.K.S!!
In short, I had images of the Capitol Building and National Stadium on my legs, a kite on my waist, F1 cars on my hands, Majulah! The Singapore Spirit shirt and tattoo, 2 durian shells aka Esplanade as my shoulder pads and Marina Bay Sands on my back.
Not the funnest thing to do in the world but hey, people in S.P.A.R.K.S got to know each other better and we are on my way to accomplish the actual GESL Project.
Wish us luck! ^^v
