YEA! It's all finally over!!!! At last... To those still having their last few papers, just hang on a little and everything will be all over! =)

Today's Marking Day and we are given a day off. We (Han, Lay, Jen and I) decided at the last minute to go for a picnic at East Coast Park in the morning! So impromptu...With everything unprepared, Han called me over to her house to help her with the folding of the tent. That nearly cost my life. After about 45 minutes of futile struggling, we gave up and wrapped the entire tent with transparent scotch tape. It looked like some huge disfigured canvas cloth. AND that gained us quite a lot of attention on the bus and on the train.

After meeting Jen and Lay in front of Popular... we headed for Giant to get our picnic food. We took quite a long time deciding on what to buy. On the way along the shelves, Jen picked up a magazine, and Han, a bottle of plum juice and Lay a slab of sweets and they decided to buy too... Thanks to Lay for treating us to sweets!

There was a huge pile of vomit at JE MRT station, leaving us feeling quite gross. Anyway, we were really shocked to hear that East Coast Park was near Eunos. We checked out the map and after some quick calculations, the journey will take about 1 hour. -gasps-

And... yes! We reached and planted ourselves comfortably under a shady tree. Hahah... we worked together to get that scotch-tape-wrapped tent out nicely from its endless wind of tape. Han and Jen went to rent 2 bikes for $5 each for 6 hours (1pm-6pm). Soon, we began our picnic... so fun.. talked a lot about anything under the sun. Later we went down to the beach barefooted and played with the water. Took some really lame photos and wrote some funny words on the sand. =)

We took shifts to ride the bikes and the other pair played monopoly inside the tent while looking after our things. Jen and I were the first pair. After 30 minutes of riding, we came back and changed shift. I fell asleep in the tent as I was too tired to continue the game of monopoly with lay. I slept while she read her vampire book.

Han and Jen came back after a while and its lay's and my turn. We rode on the bike for about 1 hour...the entire stretch of East Coast Park. We even passed the forest which caught fire yesterday, leaving the firefighters to fight with it for 13 hours (those who watched the news will know what I am talking about). As we rode pass, there were fire engines and police cars there...watched them at work as we rode along. The air there was a little hazy too. We even had to dodge some fire engines that stood in our way! =) Had a good talk with lay... my only regret today is not being able to ride the entire stretch of road with Han!!! So sorry dear, my butt really hurts after 1 hour of vigorous biking! Another time ok?

We had a round of tea break and watched the water activities going on. There were a group of Malay guys trying to windsurf with a tiny board. And for goodness sake, I believe they tired a hundred and one times but their efforts failed. I was even tired looking at them try. Talking about being ******... shan't say anything about that.

So... it's time to head for home. Jen was damn good, she rocks man! She managed to get the first 3 steps of the tent folding right... at just one look at the instruction sheet. To think, Han and I got even the first step WRONG at her (Han's) house! Both of us screamed like some mad women and ran to give her a big bear hug!!!! She was so overwhelmed by us! But the last 3 steps posed a great problem to us. Jen suggested that I go get some adults to help us. In a frantic search, I spotted a couple in clad in jogging attire. They agreed to help at the first instance and went with me... and after some struggling, the man got the finally shape of the folded tent somewhat right and Han stuffed the tent in with his help! We were so damn happy and I shook my hand with him, thanking him for his effort! Haha.. Han even named him a white angel. He is really dashing, in those frameless glasses. Too bad, he was a wife already. No chance for me.

This outing with them three really bonded us together, even better than before. A real pity Fu Er and Ah Ma can't make it today. Breathing in the fresh air in nature really beats the time spent in some shopping mall, window-shopping. I feel much more alert and energetic. For me, it's my first time having a picnic with a bunch of good friends... a really meaningful day. To those who haven't been in touch with nature, the sand and the sea for ages, go for an outing these days. I believe the time spent will be worthwhile and will leave lasting memories in your mind, forever.

Although I am felt with a hurting butt with tired and strained legs, all the end of the day, it's all worthwhile! =) [Sorry for the long entry... I haven't blogging for weeks!!! Please bear with me!]
