Im not good at sports nor at hangouts activities. Not coz Im not sporty, haha, just not much personal time for such exposure.
My kids are always on my mind, which has become a habit and regular routine for me to be with them when Im off work. My kids do give me my personal time but I didnt really desire much for myself. 🤷♀️🤦♀️
My company likes to organise activities where they wish to give employees bonding and relax time. This is one thing I really love about my company. They try to host events and activities within the working hours, only sometimes extend till after worktime due to no other alternatives. But still, good enough for me. 🤗
Ou HR had previously planned Pool Tournament, got the teams ready and set the game dates.
TGIF, my team was the 1st to kick off the Pool Tournament yesterday. 😅
I have lost touch playing pool for at least 10 years I think. Having no confidence, I just told my teammate “Let’s aim for the black ball and wrap up” 🤣🤣🤣
The Tournament has 2 players in a team vs another team. To win is to get best 2 out of 3 games. Winning team gets to the Quarter Finals, then Semi Finals and Finals. And attractive prizes to be won sia 😍
My partner and I didnt put up any practise before our tournament, as both of us expected to lose. 😅 And anyway, we were both busy at work. 🤭
Thats my partner, a sweet bunny babe on my right. And my 2 opponents on my left. Let the Game roll…
Expectedly, we lost the 1st game. But it was a close win as both teams cleared their balls, leaving only the black ball behind. My partner and I encouraged ourselves that we surprisingly could clear our balls well though we lost! 😉
2nd game continued. We started to drift away abit as the game was taking long.
Opponents were busy analysing at their every single turn of how to aim the balls. 🤣 Again, we all cleared our balls, leaving the last black ball. I had expected the opponent would clear it when it was his turn. But oops! He missed it! I had that great chance now. With little confidence, I tried to shoot with a long distance and in the black ball went! YEA! 🤜🤛
So it was a draw. And then went on the final game. My team was left with 2 balls while my opponent team was left to hit the black ball only. Still, I expected to lose since opponent was on upper hand of winning. But no… he missed it again. 😱
Taking a deep breathe, somehow, I told myself this time to bend down lower, eye to eye level at the pool table with the 2 balls to clear.
1st shot, in! 2nd shot, in! Everyone around the table went WOAH in surprise. I didnt get distracted from being proud of what I did. I took the last black ball shot fast without second thought of wanting to analyse the angle again and… in it went! 😳
WHAT A SURPRISED STRAIGHT 3 SHOTS IN A TURN! Everyone stood to clap and cheer for me. OMG! I was so freaking happy and start jumping, hugging my partner and face went blushing sooooo RED!
I didnt know I still have such “play pool” talent till now. It really made my day. ✅
We are READY for our next month Quarter Finals!!! 👊💪
