Company Golf Tournament

Last Friday, my company held an annual golf tournament. Being new and not knowing anyone yet, I decided to join in, hoping to know more people during this time. Of course, I warned the coordinator that I never stepped in a golf course, so rules etc were nonexistent as far as I was concerned. Heck, I only knew golf from reading Dan Doh!!

On the tournament day, it was cloudy in the morning. I started to regret my registration. Also, I realized that playing on a golf course meant I had to walk around in "forest" for hours. I hated exercises (still do). What on earth was I thinking when I registered? Hhhh..

We all went to work in the morning, and at about 11 am, we headed to the golf course for lunch before the game. My mood got better after that. The sky cleared. I found out that some of my colleagues didn't know golf either. And I knew one of my teammates (phew!).

After trying it out, golf turned out to be pretty fun. Okay, it was fun only when I hit the ball - which didn't happen very often - but the anticipation that "the next hit might be it" kept me motivated. In addition, the game was played a bit differently than usual. There were games at some of the holes. At hole 9, it was marshmallows golf (who could hit it the furthest among all participants). There was a hockey net at hole 13. If we could hit the golf ball through it, we could advance 40 yards ahead right away. Also, there was poker games, where we had to pick cards from different people from several places. These card holders, in turn, provided games we needed to play in order to get the cards. Incidentally, our team managed to collect a club flush. Unfortunately, some other team got a straight flush, so we lost the poker game.

BUT, we did win the whole tournament. Yup, I was surprised myself. I knew that at some point, we got -6, and we went +2 at hole 18. But we missed the last 2 holes (time out). I heard that some team got -9, and there were teams who completed the whole course. So I didn't expect to win. But win, we did! Although it was mostly my teammate's effort, as a team member, I was very proud of the win. Ehem.. and I did managed a birdie (I did better on the green than trying to get to the green).

For the prize, each of us got one movie pass, and our names would be engraved on the Golf Trophy.

Hahaha.. I still can't believe it. But wasn't it a good start for an amateur like me?

Amigurumi: Single Pea and Deadly Cute Ninja

I think I was bitten by the craft bugs. Here's my next creation: the single pea (because making 3 of them in solid green is just too much for my eyes) and the deadly but cute ninja. Chris called them Peany and Ninji. Peany, Dora, Ninji, and Mushy posing together It's hard to see from this photo, but Ninji actually has a sling (in a slightly different color) around his body, and a mini ninja star. And talk about proportion... the vegetables are larger than the cat and the person. Makes you wonder, isn't it?

An Overbooked Weekend

The weekend of Mother's Day 2009 was definitely one (fun and) overbooked weekend. Planning for this weekend was started a couple months back, when we thought there were only the Youth Retreat to go to. We were part of the Youth Group for a long time, and even though we are past university age, we still would like to support their program. The place for the retreat was 3 hours away No problem, it was only from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Plenty of time to sleep off the tiredness, and be fresh for Monday morning works. So we signed up without second thoughts. Pemberton - our destination for Spring Fellowship 2009 Then my mom came and decided to stay until just after Mother's Day. Which meant that her flight was leaving on early hours of the Monday after. Which meant that we needed to get her to the airport around Sunday midnight. Okay, going to the Retreat would mean leaving my mom without us for the whole weekend. But then my mom encouraged us to go. Yuli wasn

Amigurumi: Mario Bros Mushroom

I found out that I had a stash of acrylic yarns left (in the storage), and so I was looking around for patterns/stuff I can use them for. I ended up finding Amigurumi , and of course the pattern I wanted uses the colors of yarns I did not already have. I ended up buying another stash of acrylic yarns in different colors. Thankfully, Zellers had it on sale. In any case, my first Amigurumi project was the Mario Bros Mushroom. I found out (too late), that I was doing the red part wrong. I crocheted from the back loop only, instead of from both loop. Hence, the "head" is taller than it's supposed to be. But since I didn't realize it until after the head was completed, I decided to leave it as it was. Mushy I gave this one to Chris, just because he wanted one. This became another addition to his "work buddies", as you can see below. Chris's "Work Buddies" But bad Chris! He made Mushy to be the bad guy (I think). Chris called this scene "
