Got out of here with Scoot

Scoot on a scooter.

SO I GOT AWAY from Singapore for a short while with SCOOT!

(Backstory: I wrote this post. Scoot replied to me on twitter/email cause they were too ‘late’ to buy me a scooter, they got me other things instead.)

While this isn’t an advertorial, I just wanted to let you know what I got since a lot of my friends wanted to know how the flight on Scoot is too since plenty want to try it for going to the upcoming conventions!

What Scoot emailed me was for me and A FRIEND to get return tickets on ScootBiz! That means their business class.

Also, I am to receive a free custom Scoot helmet.

I haven’t gotten that because custom helmets take time to print and be made anyway but I’m looking forward to it.

Really Random Encounters

Detecting metal?

We went to the national museum for the Total Defence 30th anniversary! There were so many cool things to do even before entering the museum.

Like playing with metal detectors and eating army rations or checking out their weaponry.

Unfortunately, by the time you read this, the special exhibition is oveeer.

OH AND BY THE WAY. I AM VERILY GLAD, my two teams in N.E.mation? THEY BOTH GOT INTO TOP THREE. The champion and the 1st runner up but that shall be a different post…

Anyway, Saturday really was random adventures day.

A Beautiful Plan

Huh, this is the first State of Sarah report for the year. Well there you go. I have a plan. Oh and before I start on what this year will be, LIKE my page here:

Because you guys want to know what’s happening in Singapore or want to go events? Well, just like that page. I don’t post ALL my activities here, that would just be silly and spammy.

Firstly, this Saturday I’m going to La Salle to hopefully see The Walking Dead stars at 11am and then I’ll have a snack or something and go for the Run for Your Lives Asia since mine starts at 4pm.

That’s just this weekend.

Note, this post is going to be Singlish-y.

What I am up to is also…

Love Kuching Project

Well, I do now and then get to help out at Love Kuching Project. I didn’t get Dawn from them though, Dawn just self-rescued herself by shoving herself inside the house.

Hanging around

Ok lor.

Not the Epilogue

Never stop exploring

4 January 2014 – Ventriloquism workshop at Bukit Merah Library

6 January 2014 – Game programming for Windows & iPhone at the Central Library

11 January 2014 – Run for Your Lives Asia

15 February 2014 – Marina Run

8 March 2014 – Venus Run

27 April 2014 – Run350

That’s what I’ve already registered myself to while the early bird offer is on for Marina Run and Run350, plus the Venus Run I managed to get a discount by registering with pals.

By the way, the programmes at the library I registered for are free and it’s more of first come, first served! There’s lots of cool workshops and you can check out the Go Library events or Read Singapore’s workshops. These ones are for January to March 2014.

I know the leather crafting workshop is totally full for the first run in January, heh.

But ok, it looks like I’ve got myself into a run a month until April. They’re all very short runs, 5km only and I’ve been lost or going around in circles before for that amount of distance.

The longest run I’ve signed up for is Run 350 and that’ll be for 10km.

I’ve joined the Marina Run’s fun run because you get to play with water pistols, Run for Your Lives Asia for obvious obstacles, Venus run so I can run with my gal pals and lastly Run 350 because well, it was NTUC’s run and kinda cheap and is the ‘last’ run from this list so maybe I can do 10km by then?

It’ll be interesting if I can do a run a month for 2014 but then, probably not for June since fasting month is then.

I don’t really want to run run for long distances, I prefer the fun types where you do other things too.

So I’ve kinda plotted what I want to do for 2014. Did you know Singapore Writers Festival theme then would be The Prospect of Beauty?

I aim to be in it and to do a book (WIP TITLE) Belles of the Ball.

Only that I’d probably get it printed myself and only open to pre-orders.

It’s not an ordinary book.

It’ll be a game book.

Choose your own adventure! We’ll see how it goes.


So how was 2013? It’s been cool. I got to go to IKEA and eat meatballs. I know, I know.

I usually don’t actually go to IKEA so this was the first of the year for me to actually eating the meatballs there.

Are you Singaporean?

The tents!

“Are you Singaporean?” a middle aged Chinese man asked us.

We were in queue to get our books autographed by a writer at the festival. “Uh, yes?” answered Max who actually wasn’t. And he should have proclaimed his Malaysian-ness to all instead of answering for the majority of us if we would have known what would happen next.

The man continued with, “Did you know this festival is by tax payers money?”.

I turned around, facing towards the start of the queue, my backpack towards him with the sudden need to see how many was left in line. My other friend, Raven looked into her bag as if it was the most interesting thing in the world. That left Max and Jo to face him.

Why. Why was this happening.
