Did my first successful IV drip yesterday. Pretty cool and I'm sorry for causing so much pain to my buddies arms. I got poked twice this week. So far my arms have all been 100% successful in getting an IV, my veins are just really clear and straight.
So medic course has been fine. Already used to being there, but staying in is the part which really sucks. They should seriously just make it stay-out since we got so much free time at night. We usually have more than 5 hours of free time before it's lights out... After lunch we have a one and a half hour afternoon nap time and at night it's mostly endless games of chinese chess, monopoly deal, UNO etc and we order in maccas when we're hungry! So that's my life now, sad isn't it... haha

Went shopping at DFS today. If you've seen me in an oversized ralph lauren polo tee, fyi it was probably the adult size s. I now buy the kids size XL hahaha. It's awesome cos it fits perfectly and is way cheaper. Was looking for a new wallet, couldn't find a nice one though and they all cost quite a bit. So just bought some new clothes etc etc. Retail therapy rocks :) have to stay-in tomorrow, so I shop to make myself feel better haha!
Being in HQMC the past ~6weeks has been... Interesting to say the least. The people I've been with are full of shit, in a good way. It's always a strange feeling to leave something you've been accustomed to and move on to something totally new, but marcus, suck it up. I'm going crazy, I'm talking to myself... The plan now is to just enjoy myself in medic course and then after ~2months enjoy my stay-out, 8-5 job. But for now, I have my bags packed and I'm all ready to stay-in.

So all of a sudden I am pulled back into church to play drums. Last week Ben asked me to play for youth service and just this morning Terrence dropped me a text asking me to play drums for tomorrow.
It was as if I was in sec 3 or sec 4 again where I played for church almost every single week. It certainly was the same feeling when I was asked to play. So during practice today I thought back to when was the last time I played for church. I realised it was in 2008, sometime in aug or sept. I have not served God for 16 months. I realised how much I have changed.
I used to focus on God during my playing. Now it's all about timing, precision, volume. I realised during practice that God was not on my mind at all while I was playing. I treated it like a performance. It hit me hard. You may think it's no big deal. But to me it is. Inside, it feels like I'm no longer true to God.
This is not about how good my drumming is, but whether I'm even worshipping God. If my relationship with God isn't a good one, how can I even serve Him.
I don't know where to go from this. I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. I'll probably stop playing till I'm sure about myself again.

Tonight was a really memorable night. Went out with my NS friends. Zi Jie, Si Han, Gabriel, Somerton and Hubert. Planning for this outing was a real headache. From a pizza parlour we changed to teppanyaki. Then we changed again to marche. There were endless discussions.
The Marche at 313 is really small compared to the one at vivocity. Was an ok dinner. Highlight of the night was when we went to Cineleisure. Went down to B1 as we wanted to check out movie timings. Unfortunately most were sold out. However, as we stood there discussing our next move, a tranny appeared. We decided to make a move and Hubert's biggest mistake of 2010 was to walk right by the tranny. It smacked his ass and it said "I like fat boys". Even when we went up the escalator the it was still staring at Hubert. Zi Jie "The bapo still staring at you!". We made quite a scene and laughed like hell. Needless to say, the other five of us went on about that the rest of the night. Never laughed so much in such a long time. Poor Hubert (YEA right! hahahahahahahaha). Thanks for providing us entertainment for the rest of the night tranny and Hubert.

So I should be blogging this last night, but oh well.
25 March post:
Today is free cone day at Ben and Jerrys's! A few of us went to the
zoo for lunch as that was the nearest B&J outlet. Ate at KFC then went to queue up for B&J. Thank God the queue wasn't that long. We were all wearing our SAF uniforms so we were watching out for anyone pointing a camera in our direction, just incase we get STOMPED... Just imagine "SAF personnel are supposed to be defending our country or queuing up for ice cream?" We would get so screwed. So anyway tried the new flavour, it's nice :)
So after book out went to united square to meet Ivan and Lennon, bumped into David on the way there. Wanted to get another scoop of ice cream at B&J at united square. BUT, when I got there at about 6.40 the queue was already closed! Shit.... I was disappointed, Ivan was pissed, Lennon was just hungry, David I don't know how he felt... So we went to bakerzin for dinner, we just talked crap the whole time, really funny. David left for home the rest of us went to lido. We watched The Lovely Bones. I think it's a really really good show. Although the actresses aren't really pretty... But it was quite a touching show I guess.
