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.
