Earworm: Friday Night~~The Darkness
The theme for this year's nite cycling: Go tandem
looks like two orang cacat doesn't it? lol.. some more the shirt design is lacking the handlebar, unlike the banner in comm hall.
haha we're both SINGLE!
event delayed way past midnight since there was delay in transporting the tandem bikes.. one lorry can only take 8 bikes and they've been transporting since 4pm then the jam caught on. goodness!
Wobbling around before the real gruelling event starts.
props to the only girl-girl team in our group: Dina and Sandra!
was quite a while before me and lh could find a bike that didnt have broken gear, non working brakes, unsynchronised pedals. And one with correct height of seats too!
my camera's not very good. i tried to take the road while at the back of the tandem. since I don't have any control over the direction. It's just like hands free cycling. except when I have to grip it hard during unstable push off. The real challenge of tandem is regaining the momentum once you stop. and let me guarantee you, with speeding cabs zooming around at night, u better stop at every red light! The traffic is still there even throughout the wee hours of the night. Does the city never sleep?
me and our bike. 1st pit stop at Labrador National Park. It's next to the sea. Can see distant lights of the port from here.
nah we didnt visit underwater world
one of my supposedly artistic shots of the streetlamp. i love the diffused glow though.
After that was a challenging cycle upslope and through clarke quay. (my muscles are lactating! thats a Ms Ng joke)
We passed Momo! This is a sucky pic i know. Around there me and lh with ian and joy got separated from the other group and actually we overshot where we were supposed to turn in. poor ic zibin had to zip around here and there to make sure everyone was there.
Next destination: The Flies' Eyes. Durian. Whatever.
obligatory group pic against the famous city skyline. which is taken by photocomm member so not with me obviously.
i tried to take my own masterpiece using yen's camera. too far too little.
the famous but expensive(but of course) restaurant
am i the only one who is sad coz we're in such an unglam state?
im one of those vagabonds sleeping by the river.
by this time lh was very tired and irritable already. sorry dear that you have to do most of the work in front. sometimes the pedal gets ahead of me, and i end up being the backseat driver(or rather cyclist)
by this time, lotsa ppl craving for food also. Geylang is where we'll get it.
sigh another super unglam pic. had mee sua. wasn't the best i had but it'll do. their soya bean not bad.(for a non soya bean lover) or maybe i was thirsty. they had interesting looking fried carrot cake with egg. i wanted some yow char kuai but guess there was already enough oil on my face for ME to become the yow char lui.
we also paid a visit to the singapore indoor stadium where i seem to feel more at home with the east. my group guessed the supper item prices correctly so won a S$15 voucher to be shared among 22 people. yayness. =/
posed with yen and her super flirty partner at the bridge.
then it was all the way to ECP! felt a slight stab of nostalgia when we cycled past DHSH. ouch my precious butt. by then me and lh had to half stand for every bump we came across.
at long last, we reached! circa 7am.
ah thats the little bend of tanjung(?) where our love began. =)
i love how the sky looks so blue in the background.
i'll leave you with 2 parting shots.though i realise shooting against the bright rays made the whole pic look dark. it still looks nice to me otherwise. i love reflections and sunrise.
