I was supposed to blog about this since 2 weeks ago, but I haven't had the time to do so. Blame it on my job. :P Hehe. For most of you who know me, or follow my blog (which is rather rare nowadays but oh well), you'd know that I play floorball. And the Penang state team has been training really hard for the so-called Merdeka Cup, which was supposed to fall on Malaysia's Independence Day, but ended up being postponed to 13th-14th October. =.="
[Penang State Team 2012]
It was supposed to be a game between Penang and Selangor, but unfortunately, our opponent decided to import a few ang mors into their men's team. It was a disadvantage for the Penang Men's team, but nonetheless, the boys put on a good fight.
And as for the Penang Ladies' team, I'd say we don't deserve to lose, but yet, don't deserve to win. :) We don't deserve to lose because we played a better game than our opponent. We had the game under control and we forced them to play at our pace. However, we were unable to convert our chances and opportunities into goals. :/ Sad, but true. But if you ask me what I think about the Penang girls.. I only have one thing to say: I'm really, really proud of them. :)
[Blessed and proud to have played with each of them :)]
[Anybody knows who's the one in the white glasses?? Very cool ler she...
Most of the girls in our team were very young, and thus, less experience. But they ran, and they fought. And I believe, if we put in double the effort and commitment, when we go back for Merdeka Cup 2013 next year, we WILL conquer. :) No doubt.
[My little pride :)]
It was a really good trip. Had so much fun. Really. :) I've never been the talkative kind of person, but just by listening to what the girls have to say, I could laugh my a** off. :D And not forgetting the night Winnie, Natasha and myself had to sleep knowing that there's a cockroach crawling somewhere in the room (I still think it went into Winnie's ear and came out dy. HAHA!), and also getting to meet the first Malaysian lady to win an Olympic medal! Pandelela Rinong. :)

And oh oh!! I get to try out kick boxing for the first time!! Heheheheheeeee. But ended up getting a bad headache for a whole10 minutes after the sparring session. Serene punched my head well. HAHA! :)
[Eeleen & Serene. We both have the same birth date. ;)]
[And this is the best!!! Watching the two sisters fight each other!!! Hahaha!!]
Sharron *punches Serene*: "That's for stealing my food all the time!!"
Serene "punches back Sharron*: "And that's for telling mommy when I secretly talk over the phone whole night!!"
Okay. I'm being lame.
Floorball. Not a sport that is as famous as badminton or football in Malaysia yet. But it's not just about fame. It's about the passion. It's about helping the younger teammates to grow into a better player, even if they may end up outdoing me. But that's the point. They have to be better. So that the game grows, and so that they challenge me to become a better player myself too. :)
