Four Hundred & Twenty Seven. -A netball gathering for 11 generations.

March 21, 2012 / ,


On a saturday morning, I headed back to my secondary school,
for a mini netball carnival.
This gathering, involved 11 generations.
yes, eleven.

& my generation, was the oldest present that day,
aka the 1st generation.
We called it the Old Ginger vs Young Sprouts day :')
I have been trying my best to avoid the sun, as much as possible.
But for this special day, I made an exception.
A sacrifice that was really worth it :)

Memories flooded back so quickly,
the moment I stepped into the school.

In case you didn't already know,
Netball, took up more than half of my life.
AI Netball, was a huge part of my life.

muscularwoman89 + awkward jumping pose = me.

"I love the game. It's fun to play, period. I love running around and getting sweaty. I love trying to lead my team. I love facing the challenge of another team that's better." 
--Jamila Wideman 

the quarter which I played shooter for fun

Netball, the epitome of team sports.
Still believe strongly in this :)

my close friends now,
were mostly my teammates,
whom I met back in AI Netball :')

The 3 monsters, united once again :')
It has been eons since we last played tgt.
Me as Centre, Ting as GA, Lun as WA.
Those days of sweat and hardwork..
woah reminisce much.

we've all moved on to the next phase of our lives,
with only Lun who is still very active in netball,
& is excelling in it all along.
Proud of her,
our AI pride :)
Ting is now Coach Wee,
and the co-founder of her very own company,
Player, a sports events company.
Too awesome. Always have been proud of her. :)

my lil' sis,
2 years my junior.

jesley, 1 year my junior.
pity that Ah Toh couldnt make it that day..

1st, 2nd, 3rd generation peeps :)

the oldies & the youngsters :')

"Love the game. Love the game for the pure joy of accomplishment. Love the game for everything it can teach you about yourself. Love the game for the feeling of belonging to a group endeavoring to do its best. Love the game for being involved in a team whose members can't wait to see you do your best. Love the game for the challenge of working harder than you ever have at something and then harder than that. Love the game because it takes all team members to give it life. Love the game because at its best, the game tradition will include your contributions. Love the game because you belong to a long line of fine athletes who have loved it. It is now your legacy. Love the game so much that you will pass on your love of the game to another athlete who has seen your dedication, your work, your challenges, your triumphs... and then that athlete will, because of you, love the game." 

I miss the people whom I enjoy playing with.
I miss the C, B, A division days. I miss the leagues & carnivals days.
I miss sweating it out with my teammates.
I miss the cheers we used to have.
I miss trainings.
I miss the passion.
I miss the game.
