Friday frenzy. And then some.

I just thought I'd post a random photo today. I'm so glad I have my giflfriends to play futsal with every Thursday. It keeps us sane, sweaty and sex-ay!
Yesterday was another excellent session and win or lose, we always have such a fun time - injuries and scrapes aside. Classic futsal moment for the week:

Maps (from the sidelines): Missy! Block, block! (seeing the other team heading towards the goal)
Me: *panicking. runs towards the goal where Diana, the goalie (she's no. 8 in the pic above) is. But alas, the rival team scores*
Maps: Block the goal NOT Diana! (I turn to realise I was standing RIGHT in front of the goalie. BODO).

Hahahahahahaha, ok I was an idiot but it was still damn funny.

So it's Friday. I started the morning quite refreshed - probably because I went to bed at 10pm the night before. And I VOW to myself to get at least 3 articles done by today. But the minute I step into the office, it's e-mail after e-mail, request after request and filing after filing. Next thing you know, it's almost 11:30am and I have yet to write my first paragraph. Ok, breathe. All is not lost - There's still the afternoon to spare. And yes, I'm blogging because I need to get my writing engines running.
I've been going to the gym - as promised! - and I have my very own gym buddy/trainer. V is one of my favourite people in the world but she is a tyrant in the gym! But I say this with all respect and admiration of course. I figured, "Ah ok, i'll just do the treadmill for half an hour, use one of the fancy schmancy equipments and just lounge in the jacuzzi after that."

Not if V has her way.
She's been going to the gym much longer than me, that's for certain and her solid body is a testament to this. She's been showing me how to do weight training and thanks to her, I've discovered muscles I didn't know I had, haha! After 2 and a half hours in the gym, 3 days a week, with this woman, needless to say, I'm pretty sore in several regions. But on a good note, I do notice my stamina is improving and I feel more energized throughout the day. The only problem? I get SO hungry after each workout. Oink oink. Friday is another gym day. Wish me luck.

On another note, Chinese New Year is around the corner which means INCOMING RED PACKETS! I'm telling you: It literally PAYS to be unmarried these days. With this, I embrace thee oh singledom...

And the dosh comes in at the best time. Mel is packing her bags! Here's a hint:

Jangan jeles. One step in my resolution to have a fabulous year and to see more than the four walls of KK to keep myself sane.
