Fab Friday

To take advantage of the free usage of facilities at Singapore’s new Sports Hub before the promotion ends Aug 17, I booked a lane at the competition pool of the aquatic centre for a morning swim. I was assigned lane 4, the strip normally reserved for the fastest qualifier in a final. Just for that hour this morning, watched over by empty stands, I imagined a raucous crowd cheering me on like an Olympic swimmer. Alas my splits were far from even beating a top kid swimmer, but it was really nice to glide along in such an awesome pool.



I rode to the pool and back on my single speed, a storm-soaked round trip of just over 30k. It was the first time in a long long while that I’d ridden in such torrential rain, eyes pierced by the spear-like drops and body drenched to the bone. I felt so alive.

I also got home so cold and hungry – which was perfect for a light lunch of fish soup chased with waffles and truffle fries a couple of hours later when little M and I caught up with a friend for tea.

Double date



The last time I met Joyce’s daughter was 14 years ago when K was born. K has grown to be a lovely teen, and I take inspiration from Joyce in single-mothering. Today we lunched together, mothers and daughters, over juicy burgers and good conversation. Little M, of course, had breast milk and contributed some coos and cries.
