I have been doing Outrigger Canoe for the past 2 years now but I’m usually in a oc6 which means I share our great speed or lack of it with 5 other teammates.

Lately with the group size restrictions in Singapore, we have been doing a lot of oc2, again sharing the win and the lost with somebody else.

For the past couple weeks coach Denes has been putting me in a oc1 which mean I can only blame myself when I’m not moving in the right direction and/or the right speed.

I also had to remind him that it was the only sport I was doing*. I don’t go to the gym to help with my endurance and strength and I only go to the session once a week (some of my team mates do double sessions (the 7am and the 9 am) on Tuesday AND Thursday plus often go at least once during the weekend. I, on the other hand, congratulate myself I don’t send a text to cancel my session every Tuesday morning when my alarm clock goes off.

It’s all about the small wins 😂

* my long walks are not really helping (strength in legs is no help with outrigger canoe 🙄)

We used to take planes to seek out adventures, we are now content that we can still get on the water (either in team of 6 or team of 2 currently) for our outrigger canoe sessions every week.

Give us lemons and we’ll make lemonades.

I once read that “Money will only make you more of what you already are” (if you are an a$$ you won’t become nicer with money 😉). Well I would extend that a pandemic will accentuate your traits too. A negative person/complainer won’t all of sudden starts to see the glass half full or see their privileges. 🤷‍♀️

This has been my Tuesday’s view for the last 3 years in Singapore and hopefully for another year.

Next year around this time it will be replaced by some other type of trees.

Appreciate the view while you have it.

Also the other trees will be as cherished.

I bet you didn’t know I could walk on water 😂

However not sure why there is such a big discrepancy between the number of kilometers I “ran” compare to my team mate since she was right behind me (in the canoe that is 😜). It’s definitely a 10 kms roundtrip paddling distance.

When you decide to go back to your Tuesday outrigger canoe sessions and realize you’ve forgotten everything especially that you live in the tropics and the sun can do some damage in 90 minutes on water. Not the first time

Got a permanent Apple Watch and got to sample my next sleeve tattoo to see if I’ll like (j/k)

After an almost 6-month hiatus I’m back on the water for my outrigger canoe sessions.

I wasn’t as rusty as I thought I would be. Can you spot me?

It’s called outrigger canoe… and to my own surprise I’m enjoying it a lot. The being in synch with all your teammates while paddling is great to my wandering mind… one split second of not concentrating and I’m off or not doing my strokes correctly.
