DragonTug


UOB Ultimate DragonTug Showdown on Boat Quay last May 20*

This is the event info I got from from http://www.dragontug.com/:

100 tug of war matches. 70+ teams. 12 crew each. You sprint, come within 1 meter of the target, than tug your way to victory. Power wins.

A dragon boat regatta with a super-charged adrenalin twist. Two teams, head to head in 12-crew boats. At push-off, the sprint begins. Where both teams are evenly matched, both reach within approximately 1 meter of the Victory Flag, restrained by the tough cable that links both boats. The ultimate tug of war begins. The winner tugs ahead and claims the Victory Flag. Round Robin, Knockouts, Semi Finals, Finals. Are you the Ultimate DragonTug Champion?


Both our men's and women's team won 3 heats apiece but we lost during the semis(huhu). The race was very interesting and fun though, especially when the common cable gets restrained and everybody is yanked on the boat. Some boats even capsized hehe. I'm still uploading the pictures so stay tuned :)

1. I suffer from motion sickness when I travel by airplane, boat, and sometimes even by bus.
2. Whenever I leave the house, I must bring these 2 things with me - a lipbalm and a tigerbalm.
3. When I was in gradeschool, a fortuneteller told my father that one of his children will get pregnant at a young age. Can you guess who my parents suspected among their 4 daughters? Me. Poor old innocent Lala. (And yes ofcourse, the fortuneteller was wrong.)
4. I have worn braces thrice in my life. My teeth relapsed everytime the braces were removed. So now I still have a crooked set of teeth.
5. I don't drink soft drinks. My parents didn't let us have soft drinks when we were kids. Now, my family are all soda drinkers except for me.
6. I want to travel the world.
7. And I want to have lots of babies. Maybe 3 girls, 2 boys will do. Hahaha
