We went to the HomeTeamNS club at Bukit Batok! Because of a fun shoot!
A charity fun shoot for Aishah. Click to enlarge that. The fun shoot is over but you can still do private donations, check their facebook at Help Aishah Fun Shoot to ask how to give in the email in the poster above.
Our tickets. We get to have 10 shots of either a rifle or pistol.
First, a video briefing by Aishah as she teaches us how to aim using either the pistol or rifle.
The whole thing was super casual and pretty friendly cause the national shooting team and all the members of the shooting club were there to help out with the event. From registry to the shooting range.
And that’s a rifle. It was fun! Considering this was at the shooting range, we went because the proceeds were going to help Aishah out and also, we really like shooting things. You need to take up a course or workshop first before you can go to this shooting range anyway or join a club.
For safety and all that cause even though these are air pistols and air rifles, they are still weapons and should be treated properly.
The bullets we learned are made of lead and gee, it is really cool trying to hit the target.
This is my target card! No, you counted right. Uh, the other four hit the lights above the target. I take time to calibrate okay?
This is Raven’s! She used the rifle and Aishah was there to autograph our target cards. SHE COULD TELL WHO USED WHAT. I mean from the bullet marks on our cards she could tell who used the pistol and the rifle since she is a professional.
A GROUP SHOT! HA HA, get it. She was there for signings and the such. If it’s possible, we wanna go to the shooting range again.
OH HEY! The Today paper posted this on Sunday, 19 May 2013, while I was writing this post (Yeah, I schedule my Monday posts on Sunday):
SINGAPORE: A total of S$130,000 has been raised for former national shooter Aishah Samad, who lost all her limbs due to gangrene. The amount raised will go towards purchasing a pair of advanced prosthetic hands and legs for the mother of two.
A two-day charity fun-shoot held over the weekend aimed to raise S$100,000 for Aishah.
This was one of the songs performed by Seira Singing Group last April when I went to their concert. I do verily like Scarborough Fair.
ANYWHO, this weekend, the museums will have free entry for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents.
Free admissions will be provided to Citizens and Permanent Residents (PRs) all year round to the permanent galleries displaying our national collection and selected special exhibitions at the National Museums and Heritage Institutions, to encourage more citizens and PRs to visit our National Museums and Heritage Institutions.
Free admissions will be officially launched on 18 May 2013, in conjunction with NHB’s Children’s Season 2013, as well as International Museum Day, in the following National Museums and Heritage Institutions.
The weather report said it was going to be thunderous showers in the late morning to early afternoon. Fortunately, HAH NO RAIN!
No rain until a drizzle but only when I got back home.
That meant that Joelyn and I could go cycling at Pasir Ris! BECAUSE IT KEPT RAINING and we couldn’t do much outdoor things lately.
GUYYYYYYYYYYYYYS. I just had tea. Most of you who are my regular readers and people who talk to me know how it is with me + tea. The normal teh tarik!
ANYWAY. So I read the whole “Singapore’s Not Boring, You Are” thingy rebuttal to that other “Singapore’s Boring” thing which was written over 3 years ago. I think the person who wrote that would be more amazed that people are starting to comment NOW than back then.
Cause I always go “WOAAAH DUDE, WHO ARE YOU? HOW DID YOU SEARCH MY THINGS? I WROTE THIS X YEARS AGO and have an UPDATED VERSION OF THIS NOW”.
You guys don’t even comment that often for my other posts except for my ukulele guides, ABLOO BLOO BLOO.
It’s a really packed and fun May the Fourth
be with you considering it was Free Comics Book Day and Star Wars Day. There were a lot of places having events but I couldn’t get to them all.
Make sure you check out Red Dot Diva since I know she went to Invasion at Funan, Cavalock‘s post about the mini figs for FCBD and of course the Here Be Geeks when the post about it! Also, Incoherent Boy wrote about it for the Straits Times here (not sure whenever the page will break since I don’t know how they archive their articles).
ANYWAY, I got to Kinokuniya at Ngee Ann City at around 10am and hello there cosplayers!
This week so far, I have started on Tailored to Hit’s website. It’s nothing there right now so I’m not putting the url in here or anything yet.
What is this? It’s a freaking web comic! Hopefully it’ll be all ready by the time it’s supposed to be out. 9 August.
Whenever Ukulele Movement sends out their newsletter about workshops, just click ‘buy’ whenever you know it’s the workshop you want because they seats are limited and they get sold out fast! This time it was an ukestration workshop by Mark and Jane! The Sum of Parts is their new website so check that out if you want to know more about playing ukulele in an orchestra.
Yes, Ukestra = ukulele orchestra.
Well, this is the extended edition of my regular posts. Obviously, I do more than those Saturdays, so this is pretty much whenever and whatever I want to post. Kinda like a commentary of the week.
Hey everyone, my pals from the library sent me this!

Did you know lepak is in the Oxford dictionaries? Well, with Labour Day coming (it’s 1st May), maybe you’d want to lepak with everyone else at Hong Lim Park!
From the Stand Up for SG page:
This Labour Day, come and Lepak one corner, at the Speaker’s Corner! : )
We want to remember why we work so hard and find the opposite of worry.
Join us, bring something to share and see what happens next!
Bouncy castle! Yay! You know what would make this more awesome? A Milo truck. But we can’t have everything. At least, I don’t think there would be one. Still, a picnic!
I’ll bring my own Milo or tea and ukulele. And probably try out some songs and record some videos there or something. It will be fun.
And that’s it for today’s post. Yes, I had adventures during the weekend but I figure, hey you can have your own too by knowing this!
