Feb 29 & Question Mark's Soccer finals :)

Happy Leap Year & Feb 29!

For working adults, its an additional day for us to work with the same pay.
For some countries, its a day where women can propose to men (i can hear men applauding!)
In America, today is the day you take a leap of faith and do something absolutely crazy.
So.. how was your leap year and what crazy thing you have done?

***
Last Friday we headed to ECP with butterflies in our tummy for the soccer match, even after several trainings.
We signed up for it for fun only. It was a uni-sex competition but we were the only girls team but luckily we had 4 guys in our team to help us out!
They were super awesome and surprisingly, we drew the first round 2-2, won the rest & went on to finals, before losing to the final team.

And... we won 2nd prize / 1st runner up!!! :))
mad happy & that's team spirit I guess!

Some of our training sessions!


So.. we knocked off at 5pm that day and headed to our pre-race dinner, Arnolds! The chicken was really super yummy and I kinda prefered it to KFC & Popeyes actually! :)



On E's car proceeding!




With our supporters before the match :)



Our full squad!



With pretty Junie!



Girls team!


Our team name was called Question Mark? as we forgot to fill in that part during registration, so HR took the name as our official name which was quite funny.
We drew the first round 2-2, won the second 3-1!



Final round VS Destroyers!



Us on the field! :)





Heres' our second runner up trophy & we won some vouchers as well !!!







All the participating teams- guys!!



Sorting out our vouchers haha



With my num 1 supporter who were there the whole night despite the lack of sleep the whole day, giving me tips throughout as well :)

♥ Happy 32 months! ♥

Always looking forward to 28th of every month for our anniversary ♥

Months by months flew past & we have reached 32 in this coming leap year's Feb.
Used to be really particular over any celebrations/bdays/xmas/ v'days esp with expectations but I've learnt to mellow down abit as TC prefers to spend it more simply.
During his first year bday, I planned a picnic at Henderson Waves with wine & musical afer that, but grew to realise that was what I wanted and not he preferred.
So during his last year's birthday, it was simple with his fav friends over at his place & us going for a dinner.

Its never easy maintaining a relationship, I'm still trying my best as there are always differences between genders & characters
I'm more of the hyperactive, enthuastic and sucker for romantism while TC is the almost-complete opposite.
I love hanging around in town, dressing up and shopping while he prefers sub-urban and dressing down.
I like fanciful & colourful stuffs while he is a minimalist & practical person.
I like taking pictures while he do not like to take pictures or even smile for them.
He shows me love in the simpliest form ever, telling me the truth all the time, giving me wake-up calls daily, texts me morning and reminders for lunch, carries my heavy shopping bags, buying me contact lens solution at 3am in the morning, going down for all my races etc etc.
These are things I should never take for granted.
As for me, I'm more vocal and love to drop him cards, letters, sweet smses or spring him surprises.

He loves me best in my tees & shorts without any trace of make-up and I know he's a keeper for sure :)
A friend asked me "How you know he's the one?"
Well, I would never know if he is or is not, but I know he is as I could picture us hand-in-hand in 50 years to come and I will never get tired of him, that's my indicator.

We have compromised quite abit due to love as we understood each other alot till we could complete each other sentences, know what we are thinking about or even call each other at the same time.
I used to have expectations of the "ideal" guy and feel upset when I feel that he didnt act the way I expect him to, but a relationship should not be like that, there's no such thing as the perfect one but instead, you should feel perfectly comfortable with a person instead.
I have flaws as well and he accepts and loves them all the same as well.
Its easy to fall in love but maintaining it takes alot of effort which is worth it :)

Every month's anniversary came as a reminder and we are thankful we have made it this far.
Its fate that our paths crossed after we graduated, even though we never talked to each other in JC even when our classes or CCAs (netball/bball courts) are metres apart.

I'm thankful for all his efforts and I'm learning to be a better girlfriend & best friend as well ♥
