On the 16 March 2013, the Community Games 2013 had it’s opening event at Yuhua Community Club.
Since it was a Saturday, I initially decided to bring the entire family together to attend the event and watch the first Basketball Men’s 5-on-5 match. However, Jayne was down with a sudden fever and so only Joey accompanied me in the end. Nonetheless, we had a great time and I think it was the first time Joey was introduced to some of the sports on showcase.
Joey definitely inherited her mother’s photography interest and flair. Not bothered by the hot sun and stood still for a full minute to ensure she got the best shot.
First time Joey sees a canoe boat upfront. I think she looks good as a female sportsman.
The skipping team was at the venue to showcase their amazing skills too.
After walking past the team for a few times, she finally plucked up her courage to give it a try.
But her favourite sports much to her Daddy’s delight was the football shooting game. Maybe I can train her to play futsal with me in future.
Quite a good shooting posture.
Before the opening Basketball game between Yuhua CSC and TJCSC Whites. There was a super kawaii performance by the Cheerleading group from Yuhua CC.
The special guests includes Mr Tharman Shanmugaratham (Deputy Prime Minister & Minister for Finance) and Ms Grace Fu (Minister, Prime Minister’s Office).
The teams have the honor to have DPM Tharman to do the ball tossing for their match.
Let the match begins!
Watching the 2 teams doing their best to defend and attack, reminded me of my playing days in Secondary School. It was no joke to run up and down the court for the entire period. These guys are good! Eventually, Yuhua CSC won the game with score 48-40.
We watched another game going on concurrently in the sports hall. The opening Badminton game between Jurong Spring and Bukit Batok East CSC.
It was fun-filled day, especially so for me cos I had a rare chance to be out with Joey alone.

Joey was so hungry after the exercises, she ate double portion of dinner. Hahahaa..
