Yes, courtesy of Nic, I got invited to the game yesterday at the indoor stadium. I would have done live blogging if I could, but I think that’s remotely impossible… because I am too busy being engrossed in the game! You know what? I think I am going to play basketball on a regular basis. That will be for another post =P

For once, I was early. In fact, very early, because I didn’t want to sit behind and was kiasu and decided that I don’t want to miss out all the fun – not like the last 2 times when I was late for almost 15-30 minutes of the game. Actually, another reason was that I was coming down from the north and didn’t know how long it would take me to reach the stadium. I definitely don’t want to be 3/4 into the game before it ends =(

So, when I was there, everyone was practicing and some were doing slam dunk. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to capture that on my camera, else it’d have been the photo of the year! Well, at least the photo of my year! Haha…

Here’s the Slingers doing their warm up… everyone gets to exhibit his skills here!

Look that that slam-dunk action! Way to go Slingers!!!

And oh, some of the pingsters made their way here, and arriving first was Daphne!

Daphne: Hehe… take nice photo of me, ok?

Arzhou: Ah! So now you have that big-assed professional camera, ya?

Then there was food. Actually, there were more food than what you see here. It’s 2 bags of chips, which was a hot favourite, followed by lots and lots of good food – like crepes, and sandwiches and muffins and cookies and brownies!!! Woohoo! Yum yum! Before I could take any photo of it, it was all gone! =(

Well… at least I got some chips! =P

And oh, these are the kids who were given a treat at the stadium! They were there because of generous contributions by companies and individuals! Isn’t it great that everyone gets to catch a piece of the action?

And sometimes, you can only all wait in anticipation.

Slingers: Go in! Go in!

Razorbacks: Get out! Get out!

DSC_0161

Slinger: I’m going to get the ball!

Razorback: No you are not!

DSC_0173

Slinger: Oh yeah! Watch this! Hiaaaaaaaaak!

DSC_0176 

And it’s a score!!!!!! Eat dust, Razorbacks!

Ok… it’s time for me to grab some food. Hadn’t eaten anything since last night’s supper! =P Meanwhile, here’s a preview of what you guys can expect later…
