Shouldering On

shoulderThe Malaysian Open was a last minute tournament for me, and with the horses unprepared, and my shoulder Covfefe‘d, we haven’t won a game yet.  They have all been close, but so far, no cigar.  And now, to make matters worse, I took a ball from Miguel Diaz on my right shoulder.  While this balances with my left shoulder injury, I’d rather not have been hit, especially not by Miguel Diaz, who has one of the biggest hits in the game.

In between games, Natasha and I took the family to Singapore for Ameer Jumabhoy’s wedding to Sara Gheewala.  It was a really a fun wedding, with a Mendhi on the Friday and the wedding dinner at the Ritz Carlton on the Sunday night.

While we were in Singapore, we took the kids to the Luge at Sentosa, where Hugo Fischer joined us.  If you have a need for speed, the Luge is good clean fun.

The draw for play at the SEA Games was done on Saturday.  For Malaysia it is a decent draw, as they get Brunei in the 1st game, Singapore next, and Thailand in the last qualifying game.  Hopefully they will have qualified for the final before they play Thailand.

With a month to go to the SEA Games, the heat is on.   Normally I would say, “Let the Games begin.”  But it seems like the fun and games have already begun.
