I’ve been accompanying Qq to this event for 3 times, since 2007.
I quite forgot what happened during Biathlon 2007. I think I was busy taking picture with my then SLR which has spoilt even since. 😦 And I remember taking picture of someone who look like Qq but not him. Haha. During Biathlon 2008 Indra accompanied my for the 1 hour wait. It was raining that day.
During Biathlon 2009, the weather was worse. It was raining quite badly and what’s worse is that there is no shelter for ppl who waited for their friends because all the shelters was taken by the Biathlon team (for First aid thing, selling stuffs, massaging station etc). The most feasible station was the first aid station, which has quite a number of disappointing people. First, the station was also the shelter for the band (from some sec school) in case of raining. But when it started raining, the First aid people said that the band people could not block the station, as they need it for emergency. Fine…
So I was standing on the edge of the station, I was not even inside the station. There are people even standing inside the shelter, and guess what, they shunned me away, saying that in case of emergency I would block the way. REALLY? I was standing close to the pillar of the station (obviously noone would make grand entrance THROUGH the pillar right?) and I was OUTSIDE the station. Pissed off, I stood beside the station, without umbrella, and hoping that I would soon get asthma attack or pneunomia and passed out in the middle of the rain and they would rescued me inside the station. 😦
I was really angry to see that when the rain was wilder, more and more people are coming inside the shelter and guess what, they never invite me back, although few of them was looking at me (obviously some crazy girl who stood in the rain without anything to cover), including the ones who shunned me away.
Anyway, aside from the irritatinig gesture by the so called life saving team, …. here are some of the photos that we took. After the event we ate Fish & Co at suntec 🙂
We ordered New York Fish & Chips. We thought that I would like it because it is very cheesy. However, it turned out to be very oily. 😦
The other dish is the normal meal that we usually order, Seafood Platter, and some soup. 🙂 Damage done was about $30/ person. So expensive! 😦
That’s the end of the day.
