pillow talk

Jian and I are quite "independent" sleepers - it's all about curling up in that favourite position that doesn't necessarily involve the other person. So it was really nice when he came back from a few nights of in-camp training, and I found him constantly reaching out for me throughout the night. It was almost like a sub-conscious message from him that he'd missed me.

That is, until 2 nights later when I was woken up by a punch on the hip from him. And he didn't even stir when I went "Ouch! Why'd you hit me?". =S

Ahh, how fickle they can be....

Young tennis

Tennis has always been a big part of my life and for as long as I can remember, I've always been able to hit the courts with the guys. In fact, I preferred playing with the guys than the gals. I love the pace. My excuse is that I've got a sorry build for a tennis player and if I didn't counter-punch pace, my shots would have no meat behind 'em at all. =)

But since starting work, tennis has taken a back seat and I no longer play as regularly as I used to.  Mostly, when I do play, it's with gals. The slower pace seemed logical since I was now less fit, less strong and more injury-prone. Sure, I still get a hit in every now and then with some guys, but they're guys who have also mellowed over the years and don't see the need to blaze every ball back down the court.

Last night was different.

I played with YOUNG guys. Guys who went for ALL their shots and were out to whack winners left, right and centre; never mind the percentage.

We spent 3 hours on the court; 2 of which were spent playing sets. I *think* I held my own on court, but I can't remember the last time I felt so knackered after playing tennis mid-week.

I is old.

Or maybe it just means I need to get in more runs and weights if I wanna get back into the game. =)

The shoulder feels sore this morning even tho I stretched it some last night. Can't wait for all the massages in BKK!

Fer sure!

Somewhere along the way, through the early morning bike rides, late night runs, freezing treks, manic races and slow dances...I found him.



I'm very sure, this never happened to me before
I met you and now I'm sure
This never happened before

Now I see, this is the way it's supposed to be
I met you and now I see
This is the way it should be

This is the way it should be, for lovers
They shouldn't go it alone
It's not so good when your on your own

So come to me, now we can be what we want to be
I love you and now I see
This is the way it should be
This is the way it should be

This is the way it should be, for lovers
They shouldn't go it alone
It's not so good when your on your own

I'm very sure, this never happened to me before
I met you and now I'm sure
This never happened before
This never happened before
This never happened before
This never happened before

Hittin' it!

What a difference a year makes!

Last year, I was still a 20-something fiancée of a wonderful man and now, I stand 30 years old as a wife to the same wonderful man.

It feels unreal.

I feel old.

I feel lucky. Loved.

I look at my family, my husband, my friends...the inner circle so to speak, and i know I'm in a good place now. God has really been so good.

Thanks for the flowers, baby! They're beautiful! Looking forward to growing old with you... :)

Managing

First post for 2010 and I'd thought that I would do 1 on what I was hoping to achieve - my first half marathon, summiting Kilimanjaro, completing an adventure race... But as things turned out, I've been learning my first lesson for 2010 - managing expectations.

Specifically, managing expectations in a relationship.

Sometimes, you think you've got a person pegged; your finger on the relationship pulse, and then something happens and you realize that maybe it was all just in your head. And you wonder - were the signs all there and I just completely missed 'em? Or was I just expecting too much?

Or maybe even (more eloquently!) "Dammit!" :)

It definitely sounds much easier in theory, but I guess the trick is not to expect other folks to feel the same way as you about things....and that when (not if!) they don't, it's not something within my control so I shouldn't sweat over it.

Let's see how well this works.

Celebrating 59 years

It was the Ol' Hat's birthday and we wanted to take her out for some mother-daughter time. First stop was lunch, and then the fun started! ;)

We took her to Sentosa to try MegaZip...but after climbing all the way to the ticket booth, she chickened out!

So we went to do the luge ride instead...

with the sky ride too...

Dinner was a home affair - wish I could have half my grandma's culinary skills!

So while the adults were distracted, the kids came out to play:

And next year's only gonne be even bigger and better!

The night I beat Sharapova

In my dreams, that is. :)

I think I must really miss my tennis days cos I had the weirdest dream the other night. I dreamt that I was playing at this tourney and all the guys I grew up playing tennis with or watching them compete were all there for the tourney too. And then I found myself playing Sharapova.

It was a dream (literally and figuratively!) match for me cos I couldn't do anything wrong! I went for all my shots and made all of them and she had nothing against me. The match was over pretty quick and left me stunned and her, a puddle of tears.

I ran babbling to Ching about my win but she didn't seem to comprehend the significance. No one did actually. It was as if they had all expected it.

Like I said, weird! .... but oh so sweet!

Date!

It's been 3 months since we got married and I told the hobbit that I'd take him out on a date. We've both been feeling knackered from work and all the running around for the festive season so my plan for the night was dinner followed by a spa. All of it was, of cos, kept hush-hush from the hobbit. :)

Jian spent pretty much the whole dinner trying to guess what I had planned for the night.

I think I like keeping him in suspense! ;)
