We Run SG 2012


Source: Nike Running Singapore

The slots were snapped up within 48 hours last year.

This year, the website was down on the first day of registration for the public.

Many people were frustrated with the organiser.

It costs $45 to run 10km.

Yet, so many people still want to join this race.

We Run SG 2012!

Sign up here!

We came, we cheered, we had fun!

Well, this is a video that I took at the Opening Ceremony for the Singapore National Games yesterday. This is what Singapore is all about – people regardless of race, language or religion come together and have fun together.

The senior citizens really left a deep impression in me. They participated actively and were full of energy. I suppose this is one way to keep yourself happy and healthy.

I do hope to see more young Singaporeans participating in such events and joining in the fun!

Distance fares for public transport

It is important to understand how this works, especially for people like me who relies on the public transport. One penny saved is one penny earned!

So the key points here are: “up to 5 transfers”, “2 hours to complete” and “train network only once”!

SAFRA Singapore Bay Run & Army Half Marathon Race Pack Collection


On the same day, I also collected my race pack for the SAFRA Singapore Bay Run & Army Half Marathon. Maybe it was still morning and the fact that it was the last day of collection, the whole process was very smooth. It could also be due to the fact that there were many volunteers around. Thank you to all these volunteers for making the collection a pleasant one.


There are more goodies in this goodies bag!! I think for NSmen/NSF, we got an additional 2XU singlet too! Hurray!!!

Yellow Ribbon Prison Run ‘12 Race Pack Collection


I collected my race pack in the morning and maybe that was why there wasn’t many people. The whole collection only took like 2 minutes and I was out of there.


Here are the goodies inside the goodies bag! I love the inflatable water bottle the most and I am going to use it tomorrow!

SNG Opening

The Singapore National Games Opening was held at the Punggol Waterway Park today. Participants and supporters from the various clusters gathered here as we waited for Prime Minister Lee to officiate the opening.

We didn’t get to play the Frisbee but we all had a great time, enjoying ourselves with the balloons, bubbles and cheers. Some how I think the closing will be quite fun too, maybe we will attend the closing too.

Waves of Hope

I was at the Tampines Swimming Complex this morning for the Waves of Hope – an event by children, for children. It was put together by the Tampines Changkat YEC and the NUS Rotaract Club and organisations such as the Children’s Cancer Foundation and Children’s Society will benefit from the fund raised.

I think it was a very meaningful event and the children enjoyed it a lot. You can still chip in (even though the event is over now) by donating or buying a swim-let from the club. More info here:
