3rd entry for July VoM

The 3rd video for VoM July posted and tagged by Evanns See from NTU ACES. Evanns is my junior in ACES and has been with the team for over 1 year now and won 2nd for Nationals 2010. Her passion for cheer was evident in the way she works hard during training. Continue to train hard and with all the resources and support you get in NTU ACES, you will definitely continue to improve with years to come. Nice video editing skills to to compile all the random individual clips into an funny and entertaining video. Glad to see everyone enjoy themselves with cheer too outside of training.

P.S: It's been years since I went to sentosa beach to enjoy myself like that; I probably should go someday.

BPoM 5th entry

The 5th post for BPoM was by Richard from Wildcards. A very meaningful post by Richard who always never fails to motivate his team with inspiring words and quotes. A very well written post about what determination and hard work can achieve at the end of the day. It may be tough at first, but you will reap the fruits at the end. And as the comic humourously depicted it, if you try to "eat snake" at first, you will end up with no road to go. Nice post coupled with humourous comic.

Check out the post by Richard: 5th BPoM entry or here

P.S: It's always hard at the beginning and easy at the end, just like running up a slope and down a slope.

2nd entry for July VoM

The 2nd video for VoM July posted and tagged by Zhaoming. The video featured Andrew from Magnum training and hitting his Full Up Cupie with Jiahui. Nicely done there and really hope to see more from this wonderful and humble cheerleader. Also I have to say that Jiahui improved alot too since I officially met her for training end of last year. It had only been about 6 to 7 months and she had gone from never doing much of partner stunts to doing full ups, full arounds, rewinds and almost anything that you can name. Everyone let's jiayou together and make cheerleading in Singapore prosper.

P.S: I love my life

1st entry for July VoM

The 1st video for VoM July. A video by Kahau. Not only has he developed as a cheerleader, he is also developing himself as a leader, and helped in the development of many other cheerleaders. Keep up with the good work that you are doing, you have many more to learn and share. Good work too Clement, hope to meet you in future.

P.S: I love and hate the internet; it allows me to work from anywhere in the world.

To those training their Liberties

I mentioned this earlier, now I want to say it again: I don't always have it easy. I worked very hard for it.

I started working for my right liberty in the 2nd half of 2005; then with Yating, the lightest flyer (above 18yrs) you can ever find in SG.

Then in mid June 2006, I started working on my liberty with Xuewei.

I failed countless and countless times, and as you can see in video, my form was atrocious. In the end, I took more than a year to hit my first liberty.

Everyone started off at the same point, I just happen to start earlier then some. Trust me, in a point in future, in a much shorter time span than what I took, you will also be starting to do many more skills other than Right Single Liberty; if only you perserve in it. Trust me on that and believe in yourself.

P.S: Sometimes you never know if you are ever going to achieve it, everything seems so far away, but if only you kept faith and believe, it might already be just around the corner. Give up and you will never find the out.

BPoM 4th entry

The 4th post for BPoM was by Gerard from Wildcards. This is the same guy that just got his pop over last week shown in our last VoM June entry. Hope to see mutiple pop overs from you soon. Nice blog post on cheerleading safety, and from the post we can see how important personal proficiency is. Everyone has their part to play for bringing injuries to a minimum.

Check out the post by Gerard: 4th BPoM entry or here

P.S: Guys please hit the gym more often. Many injuries can be prevented if we are stronger.

Another tough one to call for this month, so many amazing videos. Well, but we still had to pick one winner, and the winner of VoM June goes to.......

Yiqian from Gusto. *All round applause*

This video is really funny and entertaining. It shows how cheerleading should be like; fun and high spirited. A great bunch of fun loving Gusto cheerleaders shown in the video. Also a very nice rewind done by Weihan and Ainslie. After watching the video, it really brings me back to the happy days when I cheered, and makes me wanna wish to go back and live all that fun again.

And of course congratulations to Yiqian (and friends - I am sure you will share the prize right?), you have won yourself $100.

And to those we took part in VoM June, I thank you all once again for the participation. Hope to see more next month =)

P.S: Yiqian, let me know when is a good time to hand you the prize. =)

9th entry for June

We have one last entry at the very last minute. The 9th entry of June, posted and tagged by Gerard from Wildcards. A very nice guy, "a gentle giant". Great work on the Pop Over, another pop over done in SG. I think we now have close to 10 people in total who can do pop over in SG. Maybe one day we can take a mass pop over video. Nice video too, I love the picture of Ochi especially. Simply made my day.

P.S: Cupie used to be a hard stunt, now Cupie Pop Overs seems to be becoming easier as the days past.

Become the fisherman

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

Many of you must have heard this before.

I have a comment. I think teaching a man to fish is not enough to feed him a lifetime.

You have to make sure he becomes a fisherman.

P.S: Do you get that?

8th entry for June

The 8th entry of June, posted and tagged by Zhaoming. I think Zhaoming requires no further introduction. Great rewind there and nice to full around and tick tock. It is great to see more people linking and stringing a sequence of partner stunts together instead of just hitting 1 stunt at time and pop down. Great achievement again, and hope you have more to come.

BPoM 3rd entry

We have a 3rd post for BPoM, keep up the good response. The post was blogged by Clement from Gusto, but tagged by Ainslie. Ok just a little refresher since this is the 1st month of induction of BPoM; if this entry wins, the prize will be split half to Clement (the blogger) and half to Ainslie (the referral). Alright a little about them both; Clement and Ainslie are both young and very promising cheerleaders in SG. Both can tumble very well and definitely a very suitable partner for each other. Hope to see the 2 of you partner up for rewind soon.

I loved the post by Clement, it not only shows the hard work, but also the graditude to people that had helped him along the way, esp his flyer Ainslie. It is very important to give thanks and acknowledge others and your own efforts. Another thing I liked to mentioned about the blog post was the use of a video in it, great job, I love it. (maybe you can tag me for VoM too - kill 2 birds with 1 stone. haha.)

Check out the post by Clement and tagged by Ainslie: 3rd BPoM entry or here

BPoM 2nd entry

Almost back to back, we have our 2nd BPoM July entry. It was posted and tagged by Gary from Wildcards. This guy definitely has the champion's mentality. Gary is so far the strongest base I have seen in SG (military presses 90kg), but yet he still thinks that he is not strong enough. This is certainly the mindset of a champion; never stop improving yourself even though you are already at the top. As a champion, he is fully qualified to blog on this topic he chosen. His post about becoming a champion indeed reflects alot of his no nonsense character, straight forward style and training philosopy.

Check out the post by Gary: 2nd BPoM entry or here

P.S: BTW I have seen this guy did a rewind to extension liberty with my own eyes just last Saturday. He has the video, but is not posting it because he said, "want to see just see me do during nationals next year"

BPoM 1st entry for July

We have our 1st BPoM July entry. It was posted and tagged by Ochi from Wildcards. A little intro for those who do not know Ochi; he is currently also the Vice Captain of Wildcards. He is indeed a very hardworking and passionate cheerleader. He is also the driver for "DIY" in Wildcards; without his persistent efforts, we might not be seeing such high levels of partner stunts in Wildcards today. Hence I think it is not so much of a coincidence that he is talking about "DIY" (even though he said he is not) in his first BPoM entry. Nice post by the way, and I loved your Kaizen theory - Whatever you do well, there is always a way to get things done better and more efficiently.

Crack my mind

I need extreme radical ideas now, I do not have the luxury of time.

P.S: I do not need you to be as strong as me physically, just as strong mentally.
