There was a part 2 of the SIM orientation today, so i had woken up at about 6.45am, ate another curry puff and had a cup of tea again… dressed up and left the house… sadly my Zune HD had low battery which i had totally forgotten to charge it the day before…

My Zune HD had lasted me till i reached the place, which i had taken the MRT and then a short bus ride to reach… signed my name on the list, wrote my name on the sticker label and stuck it on my shirt… went to the resting place up the stairs which was the cafeteria to take a sit… there weren’t many people there yet since i was there early…

It was time and slightly over but it had not yet began since the people were still pouring into the place to sign their names on the list… i was standing at the side of the path… just waiting…

When it finally started, they had us moved to the field that was laid with fake grass and we started out with some rope games that wanted us to give our best at coordination… did some rope movements and then proceeded to playing fish trawler game, which had a few people trying to catch us while they are holding hands and if they catch us, we would have to join them to catch others…

The fish game lasted a while, actually, but ended half way since theoretically, everyone would have been caught… guess they didn’t really want to waste so much time to show that… we had a water break and then proceeded to playing the train game were we were to group up into 4 and switch around when commands were given…

Had another water break and moved on the next game on the road… we did some introduction… then played through the loop where we have to pass through the hula hoop while holding hands… did a timed version of that which our class completed in about 3 mins 10 secs… not too sure if the facilitators were really counting but who cares… did some human entanglement on the road as well… hands holding other people’s hands, we had to untangle the bunch of our 16 people… our group finished first while the 2 others groups hadn’t…

Next was lunch at the cafeteria… picked up some random food… the hokkien noodle and curry was not bad… but the fried rice was rather plain… had my lunch and went to the toilet… sat around near the toilet building… it was also the place we signed the list in the morning… it started to drizzle… the in-charge told us to get the the shelter that they had opened for us…

Our class was to get to the other shelter cause there weren’t enough in the row of rooms… we got the first shelter through the rain and moved to the shelter through the rain again and we had to move to another room because they had opened another free space for us… there was less rain now…

We played some games in the air-con room… played number callling which when a 7 or multiple of 7 was called the person would have to say ‘Up’… we also played the random number version where people would have to shout out numbers without people voicing the same number… the numbers were called in open air, so there were quite some people calling out the same numbers… we played the last game which was finger catching…

The rain was over and we proceeded back the field and basketball court to play captain’s ball… weird that even though it was a different version, our facilitator still played the original one… the version we were supposed to play was then the person who scores, will join the captain and the numbers will reduce… but weirdly, we still played the normal version…

End of the game, we picked up our bags, did the evaluation form and took the gift bag and left… i took the bus to the MRT, took the MRT home… heard the new MRT jingle… weird but well, if it works then good… if not they can always change it again… no music since my Zune HD had no more battery when i was about to leave the SIM hostel…

When to deposit my money and went to Fairprice to buy some Miranda orange… it was drizzling here as well… but i didn’t need the umbrella…

Took my bath, drank some orange, same some karaoke… heated up some bread to make garlic bread and some ngor hiang for dinner… watched the new season 3 premiere of Fringe and some tv before sleeping…

The new washing machine has arrived today when i got home… seemed to have arrived with some freebies…
