Tuesday Combat hapennings....

Tonight's BODYCOMBAT was happening, so much so that I can't wait to blog it.

Early in the day, I got an sms from Renee asking if I was teaching. Apparently she's coming to my class. Oh boy, Les Mills BODYCOMBAT presenter coming to my class! Then of course, there was this question of whether shanti and BH would make another appearance after last week's Shanti's Combat Nite. After all, there was no indication in either one's blog, although shanti did blog about some weird music, movies and children's stories she grew up with.... (canton)MEH LEI KEH?

Kinda happy to see them in DU again. If not, I would've been bitching about them now. Also making a re-appearance were a couple of regulars who went missing last week. Apparently one of them was celebrating her birthday and they decided to skip my class. Darn, how come they never invite me?

So Renee was in the class, and I got a bit excited. Anyhow, managed to ask to her before I began that she'd just give me some feedbacks after the class- it's not that often I get feedbacks for BODYCOMBAT. Ever since I was appointed BODYCOMBAT assist. HT and later HT, I've only got feedbacks from Kylie. So thank you Renee, for your feedbacks.

ACTUALLY Aacthelli it was a good class, though I was exhausted by the end of the class... It's my THIRD class of the day, the last one after BODYATTACK in The Curve 5.30pm. It was, however, a far cry from last year, when I had 4 classes on Tuesday. Then, usually I punctured by the end of track 5. Finally I got smarter and drop 1 class.

OK, back to the class. Made a few inside jokes here and there and with Renee helping in track 5(crash the wedding), we got the entire class screaming and sweating out. Tiring, but fun... all thanks to the support from the members. They were unusually loud today... probably Renee was there to get the members going.

After the class, shanti and BH asked me to join them for dinner/supper/whatever. So I suggested the kopitiam right opposite RHB in DU. You'd probably see BH's review since he was busy taking pictures of the food. Idiot, why didn't you take pictures of me working my butts off in the class earlier?

So we had a great time catching up and sharing some updates on our lives. It was then I noticed the way shanti looked at me when she was talking to me. She seemed very friendly and nice to me lately. If she wasn't attached, I would've thought she may have some ulterior motives. Don't get me wrong; it's nice to have people who appreciate what you do in class, but it's another thing to have a stalker in your class, somemore I already got gf leh...

Anyhow, hopefully they will be coming back to my class again next week. I really need some lurve in DU...

Should I do it?

I've been getting this so-called scam letters in my Yahoo! email account and normally I would just delete them. But having read Kenny's recent experience with the ching-chong people, I thought maybe I should try to see how they actually scam the innocent naive people....

Here's one the latest email I've received:

Don't worry if it's too small, it reads:

From The Desk Of Dr.Bello Musa.
Bill And Exchange Manager.
African Development Bank A.D.B.
Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso.
West Africa.This is my private e mail Private Number......00226 70 25 96 53.

Compliment Of The Season,

On a very good day. I am (Dr.Bello Musa) Manager Of BILL And Exchange in African developent bank (ADB).I got your contact from a Yahoo google Search.

When i was searching for a foreign partner i assured of your capability and reliability to champion this businees opportunity when i prayed to God or Allah about you.In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 30 million U.S.A dollars ( Thirty Million U.S.A dollars Only) . In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer MR Kattan Salif who died along with his entire family on (friday december 26,2003 ) in a plane crash.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and one official in my department now decided to make this businness proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we dont want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclamed after five years, the money will be transfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner, and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 30% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 60 % would be for me, Therefore after I and my family will visit you in your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.

Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted.Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.

Your Full Name...........................?

Your Sex.................................?

Your Age.................................?

Your Country.............................?

Marital Status......................?

Your Occupation..........................?

Your Personal Mobile N°...................?

Your Personal Fax N°......................?

You should contact me on my number 00226 70 25 96 53.immediately as soon
as you receive this letter.And reply me with this e mail address immediately with those informations i need from you, for me to process the text of application for you to apply to the bank.

Yours faithfully,
Dr.Bello Musa

POST SCRITUM:You have to keep everything secret as to enable the transfer to move very smoothly in to the account you will prove to the bank.As you finished reading this letter call me immediately so that we discuss very well over this business.Please call me and inform me that you received my mail, because i don't go to net always.


OK, so I'm supposed to give him a call to talk to him about this err... opportunity of a life time. Well, it's kinda expensive to call him so maybe I'll just email the good doctor instead.

What say you? Should I proceed???

Let's get physical political

Haven't touched on political stuff in my blog for a while now. Anyhow, for those of you who are not familiar with the political news on the blogsphere, the hottest new a couple of weeks back was that heavyweight blogger Jeff Ooi has joined DAP and could well be on his way to Parliament.

Trust good ol' Kenny Sia to extend his support by helping Jeff with his campaign video.

Have fun!

Somehow, "Girlfriend" will never ever be the same again...

Please enlighten me

First and foremost, I would like clarify that it is not my intention to make fun of indian names, Just want to ask....

"How do you pronounce the name?"

The spelling sort of reminds us hokkien-speaking folks of something not so nice...

I was a fool to ever leave Manulife
Me minus you is such a lonely ride
The breakup we had has made me lonesome and sad
I realize I lurve you 'cause I want you bad, hey, hey

I spent the ev'ning in the studio
Regret the moment that I let you go
Our workout was such a way of learnin' so much
I know now that I lurve you 'cause I need your touch, hey, hey

Reunited and it feels so good
Reunited and I'll enjoy your food
There's one perfect fix
Please gimme your favourite dish
We both are so excited 'cause we're reunited, hey, hey

I sat here starin' at the same old wall
Came back to life just when I got your call
I wished I could climb right through the telephone line
And go to your place to feast and have a good time, hey, hey

I can't go pumpin' coz it's no more my class
But you still can see me in the RPM class
Just pay for the toll and do whatever it takes,
I'm glad we're back together 'cause I missed your cakes, hey, hey

Fatboy, fatboy, this is solid lurve
And your lurve is exactly what I'm dreamin' of
All through the night
come join my RPM ride
I'll give your legs the work you need with all my might, hey, hey

You don't love me anymore

Saw this posting last week and it broke my heart:

"We have on the Y axis, "lurve" quantified, one rung for each attendance. On
the X axis, we have the dates. Green for Tuesdays, Orange for Saturdays. The
blue line represents FCI's, and purple FDI's. Now, anyone with HALF an eye can
see who's leading in the attendance stakes. Satisfied or not, FCI? Roll

I reckon if I were FCI, I would be very happy with the "lurve" I'm getting from FBB. Applying the same principles as he used to meaure the "lurve" for FCI & IPOD, this is how my chart looks like:

See my line? NO? That's it.... my "lurve line" does not exist. In fact if I were to extend the period longer to, say.. Feb 2007:

Where's the lurve, FBB? Why won't you love me???
