Five-month summary

How quick time flies. It has been five months since my last post. I’ve made a few drafts but never got to publish them. Have actually deleted them now as they seem outdated already. Blogging has somewhat taken a back seat for me.

Anyhow, this past five months, I have been pre-occupied with something else. I bought a Nintendo DS Lite on November last year. A friend gave me a 4 Gb total size of DS games so I have been trying them one by one. There so much choices but I don’t really like the arcade type ones so I gave them a miss.

I had a two-week break on Christmas and we took this opportunity to travel. Shane organised a golfing trip along Murray River townships in country Victoria and the Sapphire Coast of New South Wales with his brother and best friend. Of course, I was included in the trip. Or there will be no trip. In the searing heat of summer, we played golf and did some sight-seeing on the side. Well, I actually played just a couple of times. Not that I can play well anyway. I didn’t have my own set of clubs and my swing needs a lot of work. The heat was just too much. After just 4 holes, I was absolutely knackered.

January was nothing special but February was, with birthdays and our wedding anniversary. We revisited the restaurant where we had our reception. As always, the food was nothing short of spectacular. Shane gobbled up his Australian angus beef steak in under two minutes!Srixon tour Special DC-2 Ladies Graphite Set

These past few weeks, golf has kept me busy. I have finally bought my own set of clubs, a Srixon Tour Special. It is a complete set with bag and buggy. I have been going to a driving range to hit balls. Slowly but surely, my swing is becoming more consistent and my range is improving. We also bought a golf net which we set up in the backyard so I can practice driving anytime. I have created a putting space in our lounge room so I’m practicing my putting while watching TV. Hehehe… that’s how motivated I am. I’m just starting to learn the sport so I still have a long way to go. I have set a goal for myself and I am determined to reach that goal.

We drove all the way to Sorrento a fortnight ago for a round. The undulating fairway of the course was in itself already a challenge, let alone the game. I was keeping up with the guys (in terms of walking, not shots) in the front nine but was struggling when we got to the back nine. My interest in the game is high enough that it helped me make it through up to the last hole.

So for now, golf is on top of my list of priorities outside work and home. I won’t completely abandon blogging and will still write something if I find time.


PS. In between all of these, I underwent a hysteroscopy + polypectomy to correct my abnormal menstruation. All is good now. Hopefully.
