- Love is in the air ..... (Ronald & Eileen) -

Love is in the air for this couple and we at the Freaks were glad to be part of the supporting crews.
After dating Eileen for 9 months, Ronald has decided that she is the one for her.
Planning with his close buddies, he then called on some of the Freaks to execute his plans. Discussion were made mainly on whatsapp as not to let Eileen finds out about his plan.

- Hello Kitty with the Chief planner -
- Daniel getting changed -

- Hmmmmm .... -

- I wanna be a princess -

- The flower boy -
- While waiting for the couple - 
- Hello Kitty & Daniel playing around and attracted a group of crowd -
- The proposing about to begin -
After being on the Singapore Flyer for nearly 30 minutes, Ronald then brought Eileen to Hello Kitty and Daniel. 

- Down on bended knees, the 'Ultraman' proposed to Eileen. -

And Eileen said YES !!!! 
- The 2 couples with Singapore Flyer as the backdrop -

- The couple with the crews. - 
- Lunching -

- Still thinking of what to eat -
 It was a success overall. A great team effort even though it was something of a rush plan.

This is what the couple has to say about the proposal:

Eileen's thoughts:
"The proposal was cute. The flowers and banner were pretty and I will give him a rating of 8.5 / 10 points.
It can be better if Ronald continues to act. For example, we can take photographs with the Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel. And then his brothers and friends take the banner out and walk towards us. Then it will be a great surprise. Hehehee!"

Ronald's thoughts:
"The execution of my marriage proposal on 8th Jan 2012 at Singapore Flyer was awesome.
Finally my girlfriend, Eileen, has accepted my marriage proposal!

At first, I was worried that Eileen might not like my proposal idea of using Hello Kitty & Dear Daniel theme as this idea might sound kiddish. However after thinking for several days and discussing with my other friends, I have decided to go ahead with this idea as I know that Eileen is a BIG Hello Kitty fan. Hence I used this opportunity to do a good & memorable marriage proposal event to her by having two live Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel mascots (Noreen and Jagong). Both of them were very fun-loving & cute people, and have possessed a good partnership & understanding in playing adorable couple. All of us can see that they were enjoying themselves very much on the event day. Their performances were simply awesome. 2 thumbs-up for both of them! =)

Last but not least, I would like to say a big "Thank You" to my Freedom Freaks buddies and other friends who give me lots of thoughts & ideas and also helped me on my marriage proposal day. My elite photographer and videoman team (Zhihua, Halim and Wan) had captured many wonderful photographs and video scenes. Great thanks to my brother (Jeff) who brought my bouquet of flowers and banner poster to the Greek Theatre to link up with FF Team.
Big thanks to Eliyah, Jeremy and Rozi for managing and coordinating the 2 kitty mascots well.

I really appreciate alot from the guys' best efforts in making my marriage proposal a successful project to happen!
Special thanks to all my Freedom Freaks team:

- Jeff (Flower & Poster Banner IC)
- Zhihua (Photographer 1)
- Wan (Photographer 2)
- Halim (Balloon IC)
- Rozi (Balloon 2 IC)
- Noreen (Hello Kitty mascot)
- Jagong (Dear Daniel mascot)
- Eliyah (Mascot IC)
- Jeremy (Mascot 2 IC)"

And for now, we shall wait for the actual day of the wedding. We will update on the event.
We are as excited as the couple too .....
More of these to come in the near future.
At Freedom Freaks, we are not just runners .....

Tour de BBQ Chicken Wings (07/01/12)

It was another weekend and so it's time for another 'tour' .... This time we decided to called it "Tour de BBQ Chicken Wings" as that's what we gonna have after the run at ECP Lagoon...... A total of 8 Freaks joined the run and for the 1st time, bro Nasser and sis Eliyah joined us. Sis Eli had just recovered from stress fracture and so she was taking the run slow and easy. And it was great to have bro Nasser with us who have always been sharing tips with us.
We began at a comfortable pace starting from MacDonalds and run towards Fort Road, and make our way back to ECP Food Center located at ECP Lagoon. The weather was awesome and it really helped some of us to run without the need of hydration supply.
Total distance covered was 11km, and we were all looking forward for the awesome bbq chicken wings after the run.

We were joined bro Sam and his family while we were enjoying our food. It felt great to have an experience runner who like to share his knowledge with us. Fyi, he's an 'Ultraman'so having him around is a wonderful thing.

- Patiently waiting for the run to start !! -
- Planning the route again -
- 1 more before we start -
- Off we go .... !! -
- The 'Sweeping' team -

Slow and easy sis and yet she managed  to cover 11 clicks. Salute !! 

Sis Eli is training for the aviva 70.3. All the best  to you. ATTACK!!!!

 The awesome chicken wings that we've been craving for !!! The prize upon the completion of the tour..

- Both are yummy -
- Do I look cute ? -
- The food was great -
- Too full liao -
- It was a full moon too -
- Can I have the last stick ?? -
- L to R: Meng Chan, Eliyah, Hal, Kamisah, Halim Billiejoe, Yao Ming, Asree, Sam, Nasser - 
Stay tune for our next 'tour'. 'Tour de terry fox' this coming weekend perhaps?

Tour De Punggol + Chase the Elite........(17/12/2011)

Tour De Punggol + chase the Elite.... As always we came up with different kind of tours almost every other week. This time , we hit Punggol area .... Discovered new running routes along punggol end, Waterway and few others unexplored area that is still under developement. We were fortunate to have Sumiko Tan(she's the Elite one that we were talking about)  who stays at Sengkang to join us. We started off from the Sengkang Sports Complex and proceed straight to Punggol neighborhood. From there, the route lead us to Punggol End and after that we got no idea what the are is called. The pace was reasonable and all of us managed to keep up with each other and not far apart in between. We had to climb over barriers which were not yet opened plus the compulsory stoppages to snap some pics. Overall, we managed to cover 15 clicks slow and easy run.....The experience running with an elite runner and discovering new route was priceless ......
More LSDs in the near future .....

And most importantly ...... LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND !!!!!!!!!

A morning run is not complete without a breakfast. So we proceeded to Mushroom Cafe at the nearby park for our breakfast to replenish our energy.
