Our major race for Dec was the Standard Chartered Marathon. I’m proud to announce that we are now friends with the second fastest women’s team in Singapore. Well done girls! Our girls team consisted of Mel Tan, Mel Lim, Cai Sang, Zhiyun, Ang, Zakiyah, Hui Xiang.
In the mixed team category, we came up against many strong teams and we came in a credible fifth. The men’s team came in 7th. Guys, we gotta lose those exam bellies!
Special mention also goes to our marathon guys and girls like Steven, Pat, Dex, David, Tricia, Trixie and Valerie. We’re proud of you all for going the distance. All 42.196km of it.
Meanwhile on the 26th of Dec, our wonderful girls captains organised our Christmas bash/ potluck dinner. It was held at Mel Tan’s beautiful house at Newton and we had a ball of a time. Ameera brought delicious lasagne, Ben brought roast chicken, Eric brought a lovely log cake specially baked by his mum. I brought Kiddie Moshies ice cream. Woot.
Food aside, we played the game “blow wind blow”. Guochen was the biggest winner of the night, having gobbled 8 sotong balls for 8 forfeits. Meanwhile, Jayanta provided much laughs for standing up many times when he never had to. He mistook his own purple shirt for a red shirt. It was little surprise then that guochen and Jayanta were made to do a forfeit of 7 wonders of the world. Jayanta’s right hand to guochen’s ultra sensitive chest. Wicked!
More excitement ensued when we exchanged gifts. Ben really loved his cute cartoon cushion from Trixie while Tricia seemed rather amused by Jackie’s thoughtful gift of a gundam toy figurine!
The highlight of the night came when our darling guochen was rewarded for his trash talking and tau poked plus dunked into the pool.
Thanks everyone for coming down and making the party such a success.
