22nd Consecutive SEA Games Gold Medal

Yes, our guys did it. 8 out of 13 players were playing their first SEA Games. The gold was in the bag when they beat closest rival Philippines 7-3. Last SEA Games, the goal difference was only 1.
I'll be getting free MCs from these soon-to-be doctor brothers in a few years time.

Sending off the team.

Our National Water Polo Team left this morning to fight for the country's 22nd Gold Medal at the 24th SEA Games in Korat, Thailand. Many of them asked if i was going up (Justina is going on Thursday) and their disappointment when i told them no made me wish i had planned my trip to Krabi to include a side trip to Korat.

I was also touched when one of the players referred to me and Justina as 'back up' heroes. I often see our roles as 'the behind the scenes people' that make the sport work. Very often, you'll only see the athletes, coach and team manager, but there's always the hidden people that supports the sport.. and that's us. So we're very much part of the team.. you just won't see us in any newspaper or on television lah.

Fulfillment of a dream.

I finally ran the Standard Chartered Marathon today after spending the last few years contemplating whether to run it. My timing was 5hr20min according to my watch. Some people might think that it's not fantastic but being a first time marathon for me, i'm pretty happy just to be able to complete it.

And i'm so freaking happy to finally have that exclusive Adidas 'finisher' shirt!

Short trip to Malacca

Went up with buddy Chris Brown to Malacca for a day today. Ate chicken rice balls, drank at a nearby backpacker's lodge (see picture), did some shopping, ate KFC, had Starbucks, then started the drive back to Singapore at around 5.00pm.

Been a long time coming

It's been a pretty busy 30 days since i last updated this place. Had to baby sit an Iranian and the Korean Water Polo team plus train for the marathon.. busy busy busy. And with the SEA Games just around the corner AND local competitions going on.. sigh. Just have to tahan lah.

On the plus side, i have a Krabi trip to look forward to in December. It's going to be quite a big group.. Me, Jo, Eugene, Jasper, Ting Yang plus 4 of Jo's girlfriends. This time round, i'm definitely going to spend a day scuba diving!

Insanity is really a wonderful thing

I ran 21km tonight. 2 rounds of my usual 10.5km route. What was once a torturous route has become pretty manageable. Managed to improve my breathing skills too. The run ended with me still full of breath and i felt that i could continue running. Sadly, my legs felt otherwise.. they feel like they're 80 years old.
