This shall be the last post of 2008.

It had been overall a good year for me in terms of cheerleading wise. The year started with Cheerobics training and HO training. I just got the hang of my job as an engineer, although timings are regular, not much OT, but it was still tough to be a "office boy" in the day and a "super hero" at night. My body was battered to its limits with not enough time to rest and recuperate, don't think anyone can understand how it felt.

At least all the hard work was rewarded by winning Cheerobics the third time in a row. The feeling was amazing. Not to mention that we even got 3rd for group stunt category. Just when we all thought that everything was over, we got the chance to go Japan again to compete in CAIO. It was back to trainings again, though not as tough, as we already had the routine up already, we had various other challenges to face.

After CAIO, it was the end of my competitive days with ACES. I had more time to rest, and my body was able to fully recuperate, except for the busted knee in a moment of foolishness in Japan. Began to start venturing fully into partner stunting. Was able to accomplish stunts such as Full-up, Full-around and Pop overs.
During this time, I also got to interact quite a bit with players from various squads, I enjoyed the process of sharing of knowledge.

Looking forward to more challenges in the coming year 2009, which will begin almost immediately with Inter Hall Cheerleading Competition. Hope I can find the strength somewhere to maintain my "super hero" lifestyle, admidst the huge increase in workload, and to stay healthy. You have yet to see the last of X-Wonder.

Wish everyone out there a Happy New Year, and may all your dreams come true.

"You understand that you are going to fail, thousands and thousands of times in partner stunts, just for that one time you hit beautifully."

Partner Stunt: The Delaware Experiance

Watched this 4 clips on youtube last night. It documented some of the highlights of 3 Co-ed partner stunt couples, from the University of Delaware, competing in UCA Partner Stunts Championship.

Some things that are important in partner stunting as documented by these 3 couples:

1) Your relationship between your partner. You learn that you might fight alot, but also learn to make up afterwards.
2) What it takes to be successful; If you really want it, if you are willing to work hard, if you dedicate all the time you need to hit it, and most importantly - your partner.
3) Have a good time on the mats, and show off your best skills.
4) Have fun with it, and feeling kind of relax, enjoying it and you will perform better.
5) This is my favourite quote, "You understand that you are going to fail, thousands and thousands of times in partner stunts, just for that one time you hit beautifully."

To sum it up:

Work hard, respect each other, have fun, accepting failure before success and then show the best; gives you the winning formula to a great partnership, and a great partner stunt routine.

Just Imagine

"With so many people saying it couldn't be done, all it takes is an imagination"

-Michael Phelps, after winning 8 gold medals in a single Olympics-

Everything starts with an imagination. I would like to add, "then believe in that imagination".

Awesome WPSL

It started with WPSL, then WPA aka Awesome, now he is simply Awesome WPSL, an elite in Singapore. From humble beginnings at NTU HO level for 2 years, he took a step up to participate at national level, and then at international level, and never look back since.

Well known for being a sturdy shoulder stand base, and very strong in partner stunting; but weighing in at 90 kilos, one would never thought that this man is also very talented in gymnastics. It took about 2 years for him to finally get his ROBT, making him an all-rounded cheerleader, and hence definitely put him at the top of Singapore's all time best male cheerleader list.

Its all about perseverance; with the right company and environment, and with proper guidance, nothing is impossible. Now he is ready for a skill tape of his own. A gift from me for completing his ROBT, presenting to you all, AWESOME WPSL!!!

P.S: If you tell me weight is a problem, I will get him to shut your mouth up. No excuses please, only do it or don't.

"If you don't try to save one life, you'll never save any."

This quote caught my attention while I was watching a movie. I think it makes alot of sense.

For me I would like to adapt the quote a little,

"If you don't try to help one, you'll never help any."

Every small step makes a difference.
