Back in court


We used to play badminton on a weekly basis, even before I married Edmund. I couldn’t recall why we stopped playing but it was nice to be back in court.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe used to play badminton at the Tampines Sports Complex but it wasn’t easy booking a court for two consecutive hours, so I tried Chinese Swimming Club (SCS), and viola, we got the court! Easy peasy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASonia got so eggcited about the game (she gets excited very easily). Here’s her first visit to a badminton court!

6Of course she doesn’t know how to play badminton and is not capable of passing the shuttlecock over the net. So I taught her a new way of playing. Sonia had to walk from point A to point B with a shuttlecock on her racket. It may sound very easy but it took her awhile to learn to balance the shuttlecock on her racket (it fell off the ground several times). Good try, anyway!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASonia soon got hungry and tired, so nai nai accompanied her to the bench to drink her milk. Yes, she fell asleep soon after. Now the men begin their first match!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANo, we didn’t keep track of the points. All of us haven’t played badminton in a LONG while. So today we were merely warming up. Haha…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYou might have noticed that the racket is damaged. After papa did a few smacks, the strings gave way. No joke!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI played on ground for 45 minutes and that was as far as I could go. I totally lack the stamina!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe were all drenched with perspiration, looked unglamorous, but still I insisted on taking a picture. Haha…
He obliged and that’s why I love him so much!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter a game of badminton, we all got HUNGRY!!! And so we headed to Manzhu for lunch.
They serve pretty decent lunch.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Lunching by the pool on a cloudy and windy afternoon is pure enjoyment. I could sit there all day!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere’s Sonia in her new t-shirt. Remember I mentioned we did silk screen printing some few days ago? She wore her shirt with so much pride and told everyone she ‘made’ the shirt. LOL. And just FYI, that’s a giraffe on her shirt but she insisted it’s a horse. Gee…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe had so much fun and I’m almost certain all of us, except Sonia and Mummy, would experience awful body aches tomorrow. As I type, I can already feel the aches kicking in. Even so, we are coming back next Saturday for a game or two. Cheers!!
