Bike overhaul

I want to overhaul the looks of my bike and make it look better. But i wanna do it myself(hence excludes paint jobs).

Trouble being lack of time, experience and unusually bright ideas.

Have an idea in mind but is not innovative. Just got it as i tried to fall asleep, so had to get up to sketch it before i forget ;)


I have my toefl tomorrow. Finally ;)

Unfortunately, it starts at 4 pm and with it being a 4 hour test, I might have to be in the test center till 8 pm :(
Whew.. That is a looong time and it will be late!

Anyway, I’m not quite as nervous as I was for GMAT since Toefl seems relatively easier. Buuuut, being as prepared I was for GMAT and yet I screwed it up, I hope I don’t do the same for Toefl :(

OT: Went out of my house for the first time in 6 days. Had to get my bike fixed before the test and did not want to take a chance tomorrow. Realized what an awesome weather the city is experiencing and was pissed of at having to miss all that due to these bleeding exams :(


I missed having the most major accident to date. I was trying to move to the right side of the road and an ambassador came across the road to take the left turn. I was travelling at a decent speed so I honked my horn and even flashed my lights! He apparantely paid no heed and continued.

So I had to brake at the last moment. Unfortunately, my front brakes are not working in their top condition so they are a little ineffective. And having gotten my bike serviced just yesterday, the back brakes are a little too sensitive. So I pressed on them a little harder which caused the bike to go into a wild slide. I had to immediately correct the bike and release the brakes. This though got me out of the slide, I nearly decked the amby had I not been able to swerve at the last moment and thankfully the car had also slowed down.

So I escaped a serious accident today :D. Am posting this as a protected entry cos a friend of mine had asked me, just before I left the office, to drive safely. And with this, I’m sure to get scolded ;)
