Birthday month 30-day writing challenge: Day 3....

Day 3: How the day went in full detail.

This is a late blog entry for Day 3. Thanks to the writing assignment for day 3, the next few paragraphs will explain why this post is only written this Saturday morning.

Friday morning, I got up at 520. Since I didn't go for Pump the other night, I decided to attend the Friday morning Pump class. I'm going to be honest. There was a bit of debating in my head whether I was going to stay glued to the bed and sleep more or get up and go to the gym.

Thankfully, I went with the latter. Haha!

Pump was uneventful. It was a full class, surprisingly. Unsurprisingly, I continue to struggle with the biceps track. Haha!

The rest of the day at the office went as usual. My counterparts in India are on leave because of a public holiday. That meant less emails.

After work, the original plan was to head back. I was going to meet an online seller before heading to Tipz's to drop my stuff before we head to MkSurf8's place. There was a change of plans since Tipz wasn't feeling well.

Instead of heading back, I messaged Richie and Mon to check if they were still free for dinner. We agreed to meet at Paragon and ended up having dinner at the ramen place across Din Tai Fung. It was the only place with a short queue. Haha! The food was actually enjoyable.

Following dinner, I joined Mon and Richie at Cold Storage for a bit of grocery shopping. We then parted ways. They headed for the taxi stand, while I joined the Friday night crowd at Orchard and walked to Somerset MRT.

I reached RKGreg and MkSurf8's place at half past nine. Chris was already there and they were already having a convo over wine, cheese and chocolates. I brought peanuts from Indonesia. Haha! I should've bought more since apparently, it tastes good. For the next hour or so, we just talked about our recent travels.

Next to arrive was Chiz. An hour later, the rest of the gang arrived. I am on a resolution to significantly cut my alcohol intake, in the name of my quest to lower my uric acid levels. So as much as I would've wanted to have another class of JB/Coke and even with the prodding of RKGreg, I said no. Haha!

I took my leave around 1AM. Otherwise I might have ended up having Saturday as recovery day. Hehe!

It was an exhausting day as I was falling asleep in the cab on the way back. I didn't know how long I was asleep for until the Uncle asked me whether he was supposed to turn right at CCK 5. To my delightful surprise, we were two minutes away from home. Haha!

As soon as I entered my home, I went straight to my room, took off my clothes and rested for a bit before taking a shower.

After that, it didn't take long before I was in bed and zzzing... Haha!

That explains why this blog post is late.
