Badminton At Woodbank, Aberdeen


I thought I am done with badminton, I had not been playing for a few years already in Malaysia...  and now over here in Aberdeen, it seems I have to hold the racket again, I just cannot resist playing though the "skills" are no more there.... LOL... NO power, no accuracy and slow of course, really "rusty" ... feel kind of "shy" to be in the courts with new people, new grounds and learning from them. 

Seems this will be our regular hangout during the weekdays' evenings, at least twice a week to lose some sweat, real dripping sweat from the running..... otherwise, it is all about burning fats due to the coldness of the weather.  The weather makes me hungry very fast and I keep eating every hour or so...
Before entering the courts, we had a light tea at the Woodbanks club for Shell members....
A nice glass of hot coffee or was it cappucino?
No, it is not mine, I settled for lemon tea which I had forgotten to take... 
Two badminton courts.... 
After some warming up, the game starts....
Partnering with Mary who is the real good player... 
Ready to "kill".... LOL... 
Nice to meet with new friends from Brunei, Miri and Germany... 
Aaron waiting for the opponent to smash... 
And the evening ended one for the album... 
The blurry picture must be due to the shaky hands after a good match.. 


  1. When you mention badminton, I was thinking about Mary...

  2. lol, blurry picture due to shaky hands after badminton....very true!

  3. Of the 3 games, ping pong, tennis and badminton, I love the game of badminton the most, as tennis rackets are too heavy for me and I don't really like the ping pong game. I love to "aim" at my opponents and "smack" when playing badminton, LOL. I miss my badminton game days and we can spend hours just playing badminton.

  4. Good that you are playing badminton there for exercise. Good workout for the whole body.

  5. Yes, cold weather makes me hungry too - I would want to eat all the time...and because I will not be sweating as much, I will put on weight fast. Good that you go and play badminton there.

  6. I wonder I still got it or not badminton. Ages I didn't hold racket. Lol.

    Not bad, can meet new friends from other countries on the court.

  7. Good opportunity to brush up your badminton skill. Now can eat more and then sweat it out in the badminton court. Lol!

  8. Very good lah you, still got stamina!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!
