Spent my Sunday morning under the sun to support Luq in Keppel Games 2015. Keppel is rich. I mean, rich. Then again, it is the biggest oil rig company in the world making it into the Guinness Book of World Record. I thought it was great idea for a company to hold such events to bring different business units together. Well, the competitiveness is crazy. Each time Luq told me about his training, I found myself saying, “Why are you guys so competitive? Just have fun. Shouldn’t that be what it’s about?” Apparently, no.
I am so proud of Luq. He’s won first prize in all 3 events that he participated in. At times, I question what he can’t do in life. He won the team flag challenge. I remember how many edits he had to make, rushing from work to home and back to work again. He won first place in soccer and track 4 x 100m relay. Well I know he’s always been fit, but I didn’t realize how fit he actually is. LOL, very observant partner I am.
He trained up well for these events. Rushing to meet me for yoga after training because you know I don’t like doing things without him these days. I am growing to be that clingy partner that I cringe to be, but he makes it look alright to be that way. I think he loves me depending on him. LOL, yes issues. Plus he doesn’t ride anymore so getting around is just a little bit harder and training venues were all over Singapore.
With all that he had gone through (and what I had to put up with – dinner only after 9 on most days- against my dieting rules), I am very happy and proud of him yesterday.
Of course I suffered from mild sunburn after that. Reached home only at 9pm. Washed my face and applied my peel-off mask for about 20 minutes while waiting for laundry (yes, I am getting a wee bit domesticated most weekends these days). And while waiting for my mask to dry up, might as well put some aloe vera on my hair too (just why not, I am into natural home care these days). After removing the peel-off mask, I applied turmeric (what a god send) on my face for about 15 minutes on my face.
My face is almost back to normal. Things I do for love…
