Just came back over the weekend from Penang. AM so exhausted from dunno what.. probably lack of sleep and too much alcohol! :P
It was a fun trip. We stayed over at G Hotel. Very nice hotel. excellent location... right next to Gurney Plaza. They even gave us their own gelato upon checking in! And the minibar was complimentary and refilled everyday! good eh? :) Thanks to Wei Lin from Penang bar whose connection got us good rates.
The games went ok for me. Some games were called off beacuse some of our perak members could not make it for the trip and some were called off because the penang did not have enough players. But overall Penang beat Perak by 7-6. It was an impressive showing by Perak despite its numbers.
I even had to be called back into action as goalkeeper for the football match. Managed to keep a clean sheet and we beat Penang 1-0 with a spectacular free kick from Kiko! :P hahaha it was goooood!
Oh and we whipped PEnang in tennis as well... 3-0. So it was really good :P

So anyways... Just got on the train and brought my trusty old novel to read in case the tv programme available sucks!
Maybe I should just sleep? Ah well... We'll see how it goes.

I've recently become a member of the Perak Turf Club tennis club and including my usual twice weekly tennis games at the Stadium courts I have been playing tennis almost 5 days a week now. The difference between the 2 places are that at the turf club, tennis is played on grass. :) Mind you, playing on grass is not that easy! Ok... maybe the courts we have here are not as well maintained as wimbledon courts but what the heck... its still a good surface to play on.
I count myself to be an above average player. I had lessons when I was young and was even assisting the coach in training the younger ones so not too bad lar... :P Played a few tournaments... only won the school ones never the state tourneys or PJ Open which I took part once. Kncoked out in the 1st round by some young ciku! Who later turned out to be a state junior champion!
What was I saying... oh ya... tennis on grass courts is not that easy to master. Sometimes the ball just doesn't bounce as high and the kick of the ball is sometimes irregular... serves that come in tend to slide. Now I know why the people who do well on this surface tends to serve and volley! Less chances of the ball bouncing differently and catching them off guard! :)
Got myself a new racquet as well... Babolat PureDrive... supposed to buy it from my sister's boyfriend but was informed that no need to buy cos his dad said to give it to me! YAY! Score! hahaha... thanks uncle! The last time I got myself a racquet was when I was erm... 19? so that would make it abt 14 years ago... so my racquets ARE dated! and no longer in production anymore! :)
Its good to play tennis again consistently though... one of the few things I am quite accomplished at. As in I can do almost everything the pros do but not as good! hahahha :P
Oklar... need to get back to work...
