[About this blog] Inspired by local soccer player Mike Lim during my rookie reporter days at Singapore Polytechnic, I set up this blog in August 2002. I feel that blogging is a novel platform to document interesting facets of my life and my thoughts on certain issues. [Email blogger] ephraim@singnet.com.sg

[target on sports]
it was an event targetted to let the community have a hand at learning a new sport...

the turnout was dissappointing however... contrary to reports, the turnout was a meagre 500 people...

it was an important milestone for me though....

firstly, it was the launch of the team singpore song titled "movin up" which features the voices of team singapore athletes and volunteers... yup... it was the song that a few volunteers and i lent our vocals to...

secondly, it marks the beginning of my three consecutive sundays of seeing our president his excellency mr s r nathan...

some people are so excited to meet him like as though they haven't seen him and they whip out their camera phones and snap shots of him... but i'll be seeing him for the next two sundays! it's so easy to see him lor... just go to the istana...

also, i managed to try out a few sports like hockey (which at suck at) and rowing (which is quite fun)...

thanks to the patient hockey national athlete who taught me a few techniques... a fellow saint to be exact...

pity... didn't have time to try out the rest of the stations... but got to see a few not so famous mediacorp stars playing ball...

it was a long day too....

after that i was at serangoon secondary school and caught some soccer action (again!) at the hougang cc 7-a-side soccer tournament....

i dropped by for awhile so that bro deneng could propose a basketball tournament idea to our hougang csc chairman...

then i zipped to plaza singapura's gv to check out "the island"...

and so that was how my sporty sunday went....

i'm still burnt from spending lots of time in the sun...

next week: i'll be seeing dancing sparkling stars "live" at the president's star charity...
