Workshop...

We all know that constant upgrading and attending courses/ workshop is always good... So, there we go... The 1st batch of SwimSafer Swimming instructors to attend the PDT Workshop..
Being early for the workshop left us nothing but Photo taking sessions! =p
And the vain us just cant seem to have enough of photo shoots... Hee...
I always like to think that by upgrading yourself, it's as though you are a character in a MMORPG. Everytime you attend a course, your XP will be level up... =p

Hee... "Da-Ta-Da!!!! Level Up!"

A typical lesson

Photos Courtesy of Harn (Daryl's Daddy) -> Thank You! =)

This is how our lesson usually goes... Teacher Jerry will usually give the kiddos an overview of what we will be covering today and the targets they need to meet. =)

For Today, they will be learning the competitive backstroke which is part of their new SwimSafer program!
Then, it's time for demonstration where Teacher Jerry walked the talk.

And off they go! WOooo HOOooo!! I love their plunge! Future Stars! =)

Streamline Daryl... Streamline!!! That's how you go faster! =)









Teacher Jerry: Time for some lifesaving skills.. Let's do some rope throwing!!!
Kiddos : Yeah!!!!

The kids love this part the best!Hahaha.....









The kiddos get to practise being both a rescuer and a victim. Look @ their smiles when they are able to cast out their ropes successfully to their giant victim... =)









Which is.... ME! Hahaha....

Ok... Time for them to practise being a victim themselves.. ."HELP!! HELP!! HELP!!!"

Aei... So long liao.. Where's my rope?!?!?

Ouch! Throw the rope properly leh!! Hit my head! Hee.....

I found out that the kiddos love to challenge me. =) So, why not? Let's have a mini challenge. It helps in their timing too. So, usually, we will have a "Race with Teacher Jerry". You win me, you go home. But if Teacher Jerry reaches the finish line faster than you, you go for extra 2 more laps ok!

*Swimming their heart out* I don't want kanna extra!!

When they are lying down on the floor @ the end of the day with a smile, you know, they are shagged out with enjoyment and happiness. =)

It's all in a typical day. The forever so happy kiddos, the never missing laughter's from them, the training programs Teacher Jerry planned out for them which often the kiddos will ask "Are you crazy Teacher Jerry?" and the wonderful weather... =)

Thai Cuisine!! Go Try!!

I'm not a Food blogger, so I dont really know how to review or intro about the wonderful food that we just had. But, it's super nice!!!! If you want to try Authentic Thai Food cooked by Authentic Thai Chef. This is the place you should visit!!!

Location: 1, Rocher Road, KopiTiam -> Thai Cuisine

We ordered a Green Curry, Pad Thai and Thailand famous minced pork.
First up, the Green Curry. Their Green Curry is really thick. (Not like those Thai restaurant where the Green Curry feels like soup.) For a Green Curry to taste good, not only should the sauce be thick, most importantly, it must taste great! I would give their green curry 9 stars out of 10!!!
Next up, Pad Thai. For a taste of authentic Pad Thai & not the modified version to suit Singaporean taste bud. You should try this stall! When I was in Thailand, we ordered a Pad Thai from a hawker and this is really how it taste like back in Thailand! Yummy!!!! 9 out of 10!!!!
The last dish we ordered was their minced pork. This is the most important dish. Because it's so simple. It's basically going to decide whether their stall is authentic thai cooking or not. I am using my experience in Thailand to give the judgement.

Imagine 3 days of outfield eating combat ration. And the first "Fresh" meal I had was a simple White Rice + minced pork. I tell you man, that feeling is heavenly and I'm going to remember that taste for the rest of my life.... So, when I first tasted it... Bingo! I told Xiaoxin.. "This is it!! This is the taste!!! Perfect!! This is what I ate in Thailand!!!" 
So, Go and try this Thai Cuisine stall! Believe me, you will be eating as happy as me... Cause it's really worth it!! We paid only $15 for the 3 dishes! Cheap! But most importantly, it taste good!!

Oh, When you visit the stall, don't forget to tell them Teacher Jerry (the swimming coach) intro you there one. They won't give you a discount but they will feel closer to you and give you a big smile! Cause, this stall belongs to one of my Thai Students' Parent!

And, No. We did not ask for free food. We paid our food. =) Cause, their food taste SUPERB!
p/s: I love it when I've students from all over the world!! =)

Where's my present!!?

Over the weekends, I told all my kids... "HAPPY CHILDREN'S DAY!" And the kiddos go... "PRESENTS!! WHERE'S MY PRESENTS!!!"

Hee... I'm a nice coach... No. I'm a very nice coach. I let them choose their presents... So I've complied a top 10 wish list of my kiddos... Any sponsors, kindly contact Teacher Jerry @ 9100 1855. =p

1. Iphone 4
2. Ipad
3. Itouch
4. Xbox
5. PSP
6. DS
7. Laptop
8. Bungalow & Cash <- Yes! They want a bungalow!
9. Rainbow Magic Fairy Story book
10. Metal Fight Beyblade

Well Done. Apple has dominate the top 3! Let's email Steve Jobs! Haha...
