No 1 In Tianjin

Wasn't gonna write anything, but then I got this message on MSN. How sweet....dunno if its sarcasm:

J says: blog updated?
J says: go update
J says: i can't carry on the day without reading it first
CORNELIUS says: i got nothing to update wor
J says: so u planning to just not write?
J says:how irresponsible

Anyway, to further add to the pool of instructor rivalry, I got this sms over the weekend, from fellow gym kaki:


That should hopefully ruffle some feathers, and cause an all out martial arts war.

No gym yesterday, as I was too late for body attack at axis. Brought the boys to Ikano, to hangout, as girl has some tests at school, so had to stay back with mother to do some work. Hung out at Popular, but not before buying some Wrigley Juicy Fruit chewing gum which I used to eat as a kid, and thought boy no 1 would like.

Boy: So, is this what you ate in the old days?
Me: Old days?
Boy: Ya, old days. When you were a kid.
Me: Ya.
Boy: What did they use as clocks in the old days?

Turns out, kids' palates are much more sophisticated these days, and he didn't like the juicy fruit wrigleys. He prefers those plain white ones, Dentyne and stuff, that can also clean your teeth at the same time. Roll eyes.

DR-Combat said...

{8O (shocked) woah! ...don't know how / what to say... was diverted here by the "fellow gym kaki."

errrr...it's over-rateded-ly said lar, but a thank you for certain. ;) Did a google on Tianjin, there are more top real fighters in Tianjin! I hope i don't get visits flown in from China, anytime soon. (chuckles)

FBB - Rivalry? don't ler peeps! none intended. ^ Peace in my pants. ^

Btw, your kids surely know good stuffs. No more Ding Dang, Tora-Tora or Nano-Nao anymore. Those were the old days.

fatboybakes said...

err in case you dunno, DR COMBAT, no 1 in tianjin was the phrase from FEARLESS the movie lar. oh well, i better stay away from your classes, in case i ALSO become a convert, and crown you MY no 1 in tianjin. anyway, you have enough screaming fans lah.

(btw, i have been to your class once, and REALLLY enjoyed it, and came up to you to tell you so. but that time i still combat infant, so didnt really have any instructor preference. have spoken to gym kaki, and alas, it is almost not possible for me to attend any of your classes, either coz of location or timing. might have to take up the TF one week pass just to experience the TERROR DR COMBAT once again)

pick yin: yarler, actually for nike tribe, i was expecting dr combat to win one. (although in principle, my loyalty was with my THEN FCI, who came out 3rd).

Pick Yin said...

theheh, i was in nike tribe also. i think we got forth with a couple of other groups.

shades said...

Yeah, yeah, yeah... everyone's got their fav combat instructor... :-/

fatboybakes said...

now now, shades, we all have our favourite pump instructors too, and step, and balance, and rpm.....

pick yin, which tribe were you in??? you got forth? fourth or forth???

DR-Combat said...

FBB, I know ler - just pulling legs. ;D Watched the movie, great one - too bad there's no other good real martial artist movie star after him. Donnie Yen should come into the picture more now. Anyway, hope to see you sometime soon in my class. Keep up the hype. Haha, now you can see some of THX troppers going around gyms spreading their Combat love with their "surround sound."

shades, you also got lots of fav fans in Cheras! Cheras King already! haha

fatboybakes said...

dr combat ah, you la, why dont you try to be the next good real martial artist movie star???

shades, yalar, whattttt you complaining about? people buy you dinner in KL 5 star hotels, coz you're their FCI wattttt.... you obviously have your fair share of adulating fans...

and now i hear you're the cheras king. wow....bow bow bow..

Pick Yin said...

owh i was in the samurai sword tribe :D

i think we got fourth la, some other groups got the same points as us, we are 1 point behind the third price winner.. heheh

shades said...

Since when I became Cheras King?

Next month onwards I no longer teach BC on Sunday... replacement is FCI....


*SIGH*

yhsmom said...

Yup Donnie Yen is a great but underrated martial artist! Loved him in Once Upon a Time in China 2, Dragon Inn, Iron Monkey, Hero and recently SPL! He was also the only saving grace in the otherwise mediocre Seven Swords.

fatboybakes said...

pickyin: samurai sword? kelvin tan's group ah? hmmmm, trying to flash back...alas, no photographic memory.

yhsmom: yar, donnie yen was great in HERO. what's SPL???

shades: who's FCI is taking over in cheras? yhsmom's or mine?

Pick Yin said...

yes lor, KT's group.

better not be your FCI taking over shades, no way he can make it to LM from SPK in 15 minutes!!

yhsmom said...

Har? You haven't watched yet uh? It's Donnie's latest movie "Sart Por Long". Sammo Hung and Simon Yam are also in it. Must see!

fatboybakes said...

no lar, never even heard of it....comedy or what?

kt said...

hey, pick yin... by any chance were u from SRK PP1 then SAB???

Pick Yin said...

yes kt.

fatboybakes said...

oooh, yall know each other? how exciting. whats PP1 and SAB? let me make an intelligent guess. Pasir Panjang 1, and Sultan Abu Bakar?

yhsmom said...

Not a comedy lah! Serious action movie in the good old Hong Kong style!

DR-Combat said...

Yeap, SPL is pretty good - but was expecting more ass being kicked. Donnie Yen is in another kung fu comic movie production called - "Dragon Tiger Gate" along with Nicholse Tse and Shawn Yeoh. Korean action martial arts flicks nowadays aren't that bad - quite good.

FBB, cannot ler, no standard to go up to Hongklywood (they won't like being call that). :) I'll stick to Combat. haha.

By the way, do take it easy with yourself - take a rest.

yhsmom - u going around for the BC27 launches?

kt said...

oh gosh! pick yin, it's me yee huey! wow! wat a small world. how r u?
to fatboy: PP1 = puteri pandan 1
SAB = sek aminuddin baki

yhsmom said...

DR-Combat: Yup! I should be around for the launch. Hope BC27 is better than 26 which was pretty boring.

Read about Dragon Tiger Gate in the paper the other day. Don't like Nicholas Tse though. Shawn Yu ok lah. Donnie must be doing all the work then since the two are just "pretty boys" no doubt cast in the movie as decoration to attract the ladies!

Hubby said that when he was in Hong Kong, he recently saw Donnie Yen in a TV series with Leung Siu-Loong who was Chan Chen in the Huo Yun-Jia tv series way back in the early 80s!

Pick Yin said...

yee huey: i know it's you, read your blog frequently, wanted to comment but lazy to sign up in friendster :D
got to your blog from your bf's blog. i went to his combat class once only la. too bad we don't frequent the same FF ;)

fatboybakes said...

pick yin & shades gf: gosh, such a small world one ah? puteri pandan sounds like a kind of nyonya kueh...

yhsmom & dr combat: when is the launch, dr combat, and where are you teaching the launch? yhsmom, apparently the new theme is streetfighting. i MUST make the effort to go for dr combat's launch. oh, my FCI reminded me that the true no 1 in tianjin was the dad, actually, not him. (as in not jet li's character..what was his name again? huo yin kap?)

Pick Yin said...

FB: yes, small small world. you got find out whether and where your FCI is doing the BC launch ah?

i must admit i fell asleep halfway thru Fearless, precisely during the lovey-dovey bits with the blind girl. it was downhill from there. i prefer his older movies.

yhsmom said...

PY, I agree. Really hated the part when Huo was with the turbaned tribe. Really irrelevant to the story and so corny at the end when he appeared in spirit form to the girl!

FB, correct me if I am wrong but I thought that Huo Jr went around challenging people to fights so that he could be No.1 in Tianjin. Remember how he had a "victory" wall in his house to show who he had defeated?

dr-combat said...

FBB, this time they'll be doing concurrent launches. So launches are scattered accordingly. Nevertheless, I'm set to do the Subang (17th Friday) one, followed by SPK (Sunday), Summit (Mon)and Axis (Tues with shades and Cystal).

yes you are correct when you said the theme now is streetfighting, jeans, and rugged as it goes. So the moves are more catered to that - rough and violent. hope to see you guys sometime soon!

yhsmom - can't remember that part - only watched it once, will watch it again, but I agree with PS his old shows are better. Those were the days.

fatboybakes said...

oooh, dr combat, you doing in axis huh? might get a chance then to experience the terror combat instructor. of course i know when my FCI is launching lar. he's dueting with FPI.

yhsmom: yalar, he was the physical no 1 in tianjin, but remember, at his father's grave, he said that his father was the true no 1, coz he knew when to practise restraint.

dr-combat said...

yes, see you there then! try to get into a rough street fighter character. Maybe u shouldn't shave for 3 days or so.
haha...

I need to consume lot of bananas to replenish my salts lost - overworked my body last week and weekend.

fatboybakes said...

heh heh....bouncer maybe la. they're usually fat.
wah, what did you do over the weeekend? non stop sex or combat or what? anyway, aiyo, i just heard from my FCI that your launch in axis is at 8.45 ah??? why so late one ha?

dr-combat said...

haha,...no pain no gain, but then again, I'm not talking about sex. Overdid Combat, did a google on my cramp condition at my calf (gastrocnemius) area. Confirmed my suspicion, not only that as i loose lots of sweat (i.e salt & minerals needed), I over streched myself causing muscle fatigue. That's why I cramp.

Question to ponder for FBB & yhsmom - wonder whether those people in the older days in Tianjin got these problems when they over did their training for their fights etc? Hmmm....

fatboybakes said...

dr combat, aiya, you supposed to be DOCTOR combat lar, surely you know how to take care of yourself. you young people ah, all think you all hero thats why larrr.....i got news for you, dr, once you pass 30, hmmm, those injuries come faster than you than say jab jab uppercut. anyway, take it easy yar, still want to give you a chance to be MY no 1 in tianjin....or at least no 1.5 lar.

as for the olden days, i think those people actually USED their skills in their daily life, like to kill people and what not, so probably yar, i'm sure they probably had more injuries than you guys.
