Limp Vellum Binding Workshop (I)

First time doing the headband stitching. A bit confused at the beginning ..... but getting the hang of it after few trial.

My Poké Trail

Been busy at work the past whole week.  knocked off around 12am the first two nights, thus no Pokémon Go till Wednesday.

24 August (Wed - Late nite till 2am)

26 August (Fri)
A very hazy day. PSI reading is about 200.   I could smell the burning odour lingering in the air.

All letter boxes around the area are in the midst of a facelift. They actually look good in such 'unfinished' form.

Ventured to Singapore Hortpark after work till late.  Passed by this futuristic underpass on the way.  Apparently this is the tunnel that can time travel back to 10 years !!! 😅

27 August (Sat)
A satisfactory hunting trip to Vivo and Sentosa.
This the day I registered 102 Pokémon in the Pokédex.

28 August (Sun)
Venture around Boat Quay and Fort Canning Hill after my bookbinding workshop at Chinatown.
Nice decor at the Hong Lim HDB block.

Fort Canning Hill is indeed a little oasis of serenity among the bustling hub out there.

I reached level 24 already.

Sunset @ Labrador Park

Despite my lazy bone and sleepy mode, I decided to go out and spend a relax evening at Labrador Park. 

It was worthwhile. Simply enjoyed  the sunset.

This remind me of a Chinese idiom 螳螂捕蝉 麻雀在后 (the mantis stalks the cicada, unaware of the oriole behind)
which describe someone who  pursues  a narrow gain while neglecting a greater danger. Haha!

Of course, I won't neglect my mission of catching more Pokémon.
Without me really counting the mileage venturing around the park then went straight to Harbourfront for dinner, I had hatched 7 eggs, either 2km or 5km type. With only 4 incubators for my perusal at that moment, it meant I had walked almost 10km.  Wow!

Starting from 8000+ XP, I earned 30000XP, making it 38000XP.  Further, I had catched enough basic Pokémon to evolve.  It was time to made use one of my accumulated lucky egg to double the experience points earned for the next 30 minutes.

By evolving 18 of them (18 x 500XP x 2 = 18000XP), plus a new Pokémon hatched just in time (500XP x 2 = 1000XP), with three new entries to my Pokédex (3 x 500XP x 2 = 3000XP), adding some catches and spins, I earned total 25,215XP within 30 minutes.  Gosh! Very lucky indeed.

Now I am at Level 21.  Need 75000XP to up a level. 😅

Here are my new Pokémon.

My Little Progress

Pokemon Go XP Per Level Chart:
LEVELXP Needed To Reach LevelTotal XP
I started playing the game on its official release date of 6 Aug 2016. On and off, I reached level 14 on 14 Aug.  I decided to challenge myself to see how much I can achieve by walking around places (A good exercise that I pretty much enjoy) for minimum 2 hours every night commencing on last Monday.

I managed to go a level up each night. Tally with the dates as well. 🤗
15 Aug - level 15
16 Aug - level 16
17 Aug - level 17
18 Aug - level 18
19 Aug - level 19
20 Aug - level 20

It is getting more challenging.  At level 20, I will need to earn 50,000XP to reach level 21.

Well, let's see if I can be this persistent till I 'catch them all'.


Me and my incredible joined in the Pokemon and Getai craze at Block 401 Hougang Ave 10 tonight. Well, have a little fun.

Too happy to get 4 new critters.
