Congrats to @zavjalovadiana for winning her second Queens tiara! So happy for you~ 😘👸🏼
It was of course disappointing the way it ended after coming so far, but as always, many valuable lessons to learn from with each tournament and each defeat, and it was definitely a bonus to be able to make the show and a run for the title.
Huge thank you to everybody on the @pwbatour, at @stormproducts, @viseinserts, @high5gear, Jimmy, Del, Mike, @singaporebowling and @singaporesportsinstitute for providing us with the best equipment, help and support we can possibly have out there. 💛
So blessed and honored to be given the opportunity to bowl with all the amazing ladies on tour. We hope to be back soon. 🙆🏻
Officially joined the @phshairscience family! Looking forward to all the scalp treatments and having happy, healthy, and shiny hair! Spent my Saturday afternoon being pampered with their Revitalizing Therapy to rid my scalp of the chemicals from all my hair dye sessions and at the same time, hydrating my hair with the Miracle Oil Therapy so that it will improve its elasticity and prevent future breakage.
More news! I will be at the Beauty Hall at Takashimaya with #phshairscience tomorrow from 12:30pm-2:30pm for their scalps treatment workshop. Do pop by and say hi if you can, always happy to take silly selfies with you guys 😜 See you there! And to @phshairscience thank you for having me❤🙆🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

ACUTE:CHRONIC WORKLOAD RATIO.
I always have had a great interest in injury prevention in sport. Load management, in whatever sport you're in, is the most fundamental tenet of this. Now there has been a scientifically proven method to reduce your injury risk just by tracking your training load - the acute:chronic workload ratio.
This ratio essentially tracks and compares your short term vs mid term training load and gives you a score. Your injury risk is heightened when the ratio exceeds 1.2, and increased significantly when it exceeds 1.5. This has been used and found to be valid across multiple sports e.g football,rugby, running etc
I like to give it to runners as it's an incredibly useful and easy tool to use to monitor training load and lower injury risk (picture 2). A lot of injuries I see are primarily due to sudden spikes in training load. Remember - the body is a creature of habit and likes routine. It breaks down when there is a sudden increase in load.
Another interesting and important point from studies on this ratio is this: Athletes that are of the lowest injury risk are the ones that have the highest chronic workload and a low acute:chronic ratio. These athletes are likely to be extremely well conditioned due to the high chronic workload, and they avoid spikes in training load which allows timely adaptation of the body.
I honestly haven't felt greater hope for Singapore mountain biking than this year.
Was speaking to teammates, Faroz and Irvin about it. We are really lucky to have a very passionate mountain biker, Shariff to be the local cycling federation's VP of MTB.
Besides that, I think the increase in cycling events both road and mtb have started to raise the profile of the sport as a whole.
Above all, I have observed an increase in private support for active MTB racers. This year there was the establishment of the new local XCO juggernaut, Team Awano-Treknology which also doubles as a development programme for 2 extremely talented youngsters right now, backed by a sizable arsenal of sponsors.
For me, I have been enjoying support from local SMEs, @redwhite_bibshorts and @trailplus, for which i am extremely grateful for.
Here I am pictured with a new fun bike courtesy of @trailplus. Something for me to work on my skills!
Right now, it's really up to us athletes to put in the work, to make the dream work.
ONEFC: DYNASTY OF HEROES
Fight night bite night
Where underdogs become kings,
Where champions reign supreme.
Where them blood, sweat and tears rage and roam free.
Awesome spectacular night out, hopefully I get to play around in a cage too maybe with a titantron of my own lel teehee!
Like the "Alligator" said: gimme a chance, i'll do it for free!
Oddly finding the female fighters hotter than ring girls, maybe its the raging passions.

Watching these on repeat and listening to my annoying instructions, I finally realise the mistakes for today's lesson! Obviously we have to cater to their skill level but we don't set the bar too low or too high. ---------- BUT WHAT A DAMN PRODUCTIVE MORNING!
If u want to work on ur quick reflexes, catch flying shuttlecock. The little cockster had a good laugh when he smashed the shuttlecock to my face and chest.
Baseball is nth without a random cleaner uncle being the ball picker, so we had unlimited balls rolling in throughout batting. Hah!
Tennis was last and we were both running on low batt alr. Well that's what u get when u only had cereal in the morning. #homeschoollife#noexcusemomsingapore#oldworkhabits#nofreetrials#underthrees#TeamSingapore#tenniskids#exercisegonewrong @wongi.kagawa
