Been battling gastric flu the last few days. It hit suddenly on Monday night and laid me out most of Tuesday and Wednesday. Had to take MC for both days. Today was my first day back at work and surprise, surprise everything had piled up yet again. -sigh- Still feeling pretty crap and my stomach's still giving me problems, though the fever's subsided and the headache and dizziness are mostly gone as well.

On another note, watched M:I:III with renzi on Monday night. Didn't watch the first two, so no comments on how it fared against them. It's an action movie, and it has the relatively straight-forward plot of an action movie. At the same time, it does away with trying to be anything else and just goes out to entertain you like a good action flick should. Overall, I guess that's probably the best word to describe it: "entertaining".

Next up, the Da Vinci Code and Over the Hedge.

Hmm...pretty boring day at work. Now that the project's over and done with, all I'm left with is post-project processing, which, needless to say, isn't the most exciting job in the world. I'm not rushing though, since there isn't really any deadline.

Anyway, met siao-eh for drinks at the local pub, and we agreed to go wakeboarding on Friday. Should be good. =)

Went wakeboarding with TJ and a few of his friends today (Terrence, David and Ben). Thankfully TJ gave me a call at 7am, or I probably wouldn't have made it seeing as how I only slept a 3+ am (watched CNA for election news and analysis after I got home last night).

TJ and Terrence are pretty good. Even David and Ben aren't bad. It's only my second time, though, so everyone naturally looks good to me. ;)

Terrence jumping high

TJ follows suit

David shows his stuff

Ben's got much better control than me, and he's just 14! =P

Resting up between each run

Terrence and TJ explaining the finer points of "keeping your butt in".

And finally, here's a video of Terrence's warm-up run. Note: this is only his warm-up!

Out and about

Got dragged along to a flea market with Janz yesterday. =P In all fairness, it was quite interesting...if I'd been a girl. ;) Apparently they hold it three times a year, so we might go back again next time, maybe with oaks in tow.

Some pictures:

After the flea market, we met up with oaks at The Cathay to catch Paradise Now, which, may I add, is a pretty dang'd fantastic show. Well, at least to oaks and me. Janz didn't like it as much, but then again, what does she know? =P Anyway, go watch it. Now!

After the movie, janz managed to convince the two of us to go checl out the Butter Factory club, where she was meeting a friend of hers. Of course, with Janz leading the way, we kind of got lost for quite a long while. We managed to take some nice shots, though:

After walking around for a while, we decided to stop, sit in the middle of a bridge and take pictures:

So anyway, we finally located the place. It was not half bad. Music was kinda old school R&B. It was only about half full when we went in, but started getting pretty packed after a while. Here's the place from across the river, and some interior shots:

We originally planned to leave around 1am, mostly because we were a little tired, and I had to get up early today, but we kinda got into the swing of things and ended up leaving at around 2.

All in all, a pretty full day. Took one last pic before grabbing a cab home:

After our "Lost" experience today, we're thinking of meeting up regularly just to get Lost and walk around taking photos. Heh. See how it goes.

Oh yeah, speaking of movies, Oaks and I caught The Sentinel on Friday night. I had to practically drag her to the cinema and she was griping all the way. =P But even she had to admit that it was a pretty good flick. So yeah, go catch Paradise Now and the Sentinel. =)
