What a Way to Start a Week


Just three days into the new unit life, I fell victim to illness.

It all happened during a turnout in which we had to change into the full battle order and run down to form up. This happened thrice and at the third time, while in push-up position and the FBO on my back, I succumbed to the pain.

I ended up vomitting and numbness surged through my body, from head to toe.

This turned into pain. To be specific, my lower right back and from my hamstring to my knees.

Ended up spending 2 1/2 days being warded in the sick bay at the camp's medical centre where not much treatment was given except a muscular jab, 2 litres of glucose and 6 tubes of blood extracted from me.
I almost died having needles being poked into me over and over again. Granted, for the 6 tubes of blood, they poked my skin more than 6 times.

Seeing how I was feeling no better, the doctor decided to send me to the hospital. Thankfully, I was not warded. No fractures but as the hospital doctor said, I'd prolly have something wrong with my cartilage, tissue or ligament.

Two weeks rest meaning light duty in camp lah. After which, I'll have to see a specialist.
We'll see how that goes.

In any case, walking around with a limp isn't exactly a most glamorous thing.

ALL that aside. I have more pictures to show, this time courtesy of Shahdon.
Nurul has got more pics but I'll get them another time.

A behind-the-scenes look.

And one last look before the curtains fall. Literally.

Isn't so hard to find something to make me smile. Heehee.

Sketching Life's Newest Chapter

And yes, I'm out of Tekong. Ta-ta lil' island!

Post-POP, it was straight to work with a press conference cum interview with Daniel Wu.
Visit www.moviexclusive.com for the feature.

The highlight had to be the production that spanned the weekend.
First time ever doing 5 shows at a go. It got pretty exhausting particularly on the first day.

Here are some pics.

At work & play

Of course, we found time to take a break for dinner and all.

Bon Appetit

The show went pretty well and am very happy. Despite that, got pretty irritable when the fact started sinking in that I'd be reporting to my new unit Monday morning.

Where am I going?


The Light

"Why oh why? What happened to wishing upon a shooting star?"

In any case, I refuse to let it bother me while I finish off this entry with a beautiful picture taken at the end of the show earlier this evening.

Tis' the day he'll be leaving Tekong.
