it's been awhile since i wrote something here (especially in english). i've been wanting to write, but time is a limiting factor (ugh~) nowadays. my a level exam is in 40(++) days, and my trial exam results were not good. i mean, not good, as in not good. fullstop. no further explanation needed. (and i think my english sucks too, of late. heh.)
okay, there's not much to say, nevertheless. i'm into something called parkour.
when i say this to people, the FAQ would be "parkour tu apa?"
well, here's a definition:
Parkour (sometimes also abbreviated to PK) or l'art du déplacement (English: the art of moving) is the physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one's path by adapting one's movements to the environment. It is a non-competitive, physical discipline of French origin in which participants run along a route, attempting to negotiate obstacles in the most efficient way possible, as if moving in an emergency situation. Skills such as jumping and climbing, or the more specific parkour moves are employed. The object of parkour is to get from one place to another using only the human body and the objects in the environment. The obstacles can be anything in one's environment, but parkour is often seen practiced in urban areas because of the many suitable public structures available such as buildings and rails. (wikipedia, 2010)
and by definition, parkour is difficult. or in other word - challenging. and that's what attracts me. it's nice to see people doing this, and it would be nicer IF i can do it as well.
right now i got a couple of friends that share the same interest (i influenced them, actually), and we did some training. *haha* and we are still doing it, though we couldn't even do the simplest stunt the last time.
alrite, enough with the speech, let's watch something now, shall we?
