Choosing Class On A Public Holiday

Public holidays, much as I love them, throws routine off course, and one is left with the very difficult decision as to which class to attend. Why should it make a difference? Because, with four kids in tow, expecting to be entertained on a non school day, and basic filial piety, offering lunch to parents, and making allowance for possible hangovers, (alas, these are getting fewer and fewer, was bemoaning the fact that I need to make more new younger happening friends who still go out on the eve of a public holiday) makes selection so much harder.

To summarise the thought process through which selection and decision is derived, basically, the first criteria is a convenient location. Not much use if FDI for eg, is teaching in Island Plaza. So, we start off with the obvious choice, MJH, where parking is free, and is toll free.

Based on this, FSI was teaching, but at 11.30am, which was a bummer, coz I had lunch plans at 12noon. So that was out. Then I sms-ed FDI to see if HE was teaching anywhere, but he wasn't, the lazy sod, so since there wasn;t much choice left, it led me to FCI, in the next nearest location on after MJH.

Anyway, lots of dedicated fans were up and about, ready to combat. The studio was nicely full, not TOO crowded, but certainly, not enough space for you to lay a mat and have a picnic. I couldn't help but notice that FCI looked a bit "charn", (haggard), but later on found out he was ill the night before. Pore thang.

The tracklist was about 70% same as tuesday night, including the conditioning, though the cooldown was different. Being an early morning class, it took a while to get the vocal engines started, and it was like an upstream against the current battle. Some very screamy ladies in that class. At least on Tuesday in MJH, we can always rely on Certifiable Stevie to give that impetus.

On a separate note, I must buy a lottery of sorts. Tell me, WHAT are the odds of this happening. I hardly ever eat ice cream, but for some bizarre reason, on Wednesday night, I was at Ikano, and got lured to New Zealand ice cream. I vaguely remembered one my credit cards had a 15% discount on Durian Flo. (it's not named after one of the famous Ex FF body pump instructors, Lionheart's previous FCI). So, I ordered one only to realise that I didnt bring that credit card. Anyway, here I am tucking into a very calorific durian flo, when I bump into IFPI, (interim Favourite Pump instructress), Richelle. Somehow, being seen by an instructor, with an ice cream in hand, is like being caught committing adultery.

I mutter something about oh, you must try this, its really good...(apparently wife saw her buying the same thing later).... and hurried off. Then, LAST night, in mega mall, I go up the escalator, only to notice that there's a new Gelato Kiosk...and guess what flavour they had??!!! DURIAN GELATO!!! I ask for a taste, and YUMMY, it was EXCELLENT!!!! So I thought, okay, a single scoop wont kill me, I can work it out by walking around mega mall, from metrojaya to jusco to carrefour....

So here I am tucking into a very sinful durian gelato, and LO and Behold, I bump into this young chap, wearing a black (what do you call those woolen caps that robbers and skiers wear? a baclava?) ....who turns out to be none other that Young Pump Instructor. Again, incoherent babble flows forth....

Ah well.

Aiyah! Not a balaclava la. That's the black head gear which covers everything except the eys that terorists and bank robbers wear!

Doubt that YI would be walking about in Megemall with that on unless he really didn't want to be recognized! On second thoughts you wouldn't have known it was him then! Haha

The woolly cap he was probably wearing is known as a "Beanie" la.
