Fitting in exercise around work

I need to clear my annual IPPT by the end of this year. That means I need to start exercising at least 3 times a week (if not more), if I'm going to have any chance of passing the fitness test. I'm now trying to figure out whether I should exercise before, or after work.

Frankly, I'm leaning towards exercising after work. That's what I've been doing during previous years.

missed a bargain

was thinking long and hard about buying the samsung i780 at S$198 (and recontracting with singtel) for the past few weeks.

it had all the features i desired, and was selling at a low price (compared with other phones with the same features).
  • QWERTY keypad, candybar design
  • touch-screen
  • GPS
  • wi-fi
the situation wasn't made easier when the black version went out-of-stock, leaving the wine red version in stock.

i was looking at the singtelshop website yesterday, when i noticed that the offer was till 3rd Oct. it was past midnight (i.e. 4th oct) when i saw it, and the price was still $198.

this morning, the price became $298. :(
