The whole gang during the Krabi trip. They were really good company and made the trip enjoyable despite it's initial hiccups (Tiger Airways screwed with us).

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!
