New Year's stroke of luck :-)

Almost gave up when I got lost finding a car parking entrance, after few circles I thought of going back and forgo the intention of meeting friends for a game of bowling.

(may be I should take my own P signboard..hehe)

I didn't need my GPS as I knew how to get to the place but due to the construction nearby, the usual entry was closed and it was difficult(for me) to find the alternative entry point...mmmm..???

Luckily I managed to park at nearby building and so didn't miss the fun with them.. :-)

Before the game, we went with Mas when she bought a new bowling bag, waahh..this is a serious planning to win next tournament..and I don't even have the shoes if I were to play for my batch's second team..haha

In between the game, we had these "kuih-muih", brought over by Ruzi..yummy especially the "talam ubi kayu"(made from tapioca root)

(Tapioca root pudding - google image)

(Tapioca root)

Digressing a bit there about food..haha..but the tapioca cake recipe can be found here

Anyway, somehow I managed to play quite well (by my standard hehehe..) and I told my friends it was only a fluke, a chance occurance ~ and because yesterday I didn't have the pressure of playing in actual tournament

n Cat's mama scolded me for having a low self-confidence level!..haha..:-)))

Surprise, score was 140! A first for me..but couldn't play well towards the end of the, how to play 2 games? ;)

Ruzi suggested I used 9lbs ball, and it turned out better than using 8lbs..thank u for the tips!

May be I could learn something from this video :

But then, if I want to enjoy the game,

"and have fun bowling",

I'll just throw the ball..

my way..

Nyanyi ajelah "I did it my way....." purrr....meow!

Cheqna said...

Cats dear,

"Always", "Now and Forever"..lalalalalala...


I amsterdam said...

Hmm... maybe Cheqna should join the kids here when they play bowling. They place a fence on either side of the alley, so whenever kid throws the ball, the ball will zig-zag left & right, hitting the fence and still hit the pins at the end of it har! har! har!

That will surely boost your confidence dear.. :D

Btw, where is the talam ubi in the tupperware?? Gone already?! *sigh*

thomas said...

It had been a long time since i last hold a bowling ball.

Cheqna said...

I.A dear,

hahaha..good idea there my least I cant be the queen of longkang :)))

talam ubi? by d time I remembered to snap few photos, half of the kuih in the tupperware had gone..hehehe..

..few weeks back a fren gave me some recipes for traditional kuihs that she got from her cooking class (how nice of her b'cos she knows I love cooking..hehe)..may be I should try making them (properly..haha)


Cheqna said...


I only started 5 or 6 years ago, and normally we practiced a month before the tournament.

Only this year we plan to have the sessions earlier..and I need to have LOTS of practice if I'm expected to be in the team..hehehe

but its always a pleasure to meet up with my friends..

Nana said...

Wahh...140!! Pro level tu! ;)
I have to confess...I am bad at bowling. Kekadang tak sampai seratus pun markah. Hence, I have been refusing my hubby's to go bowling. hihihi. But I need to change now. Cause hubby loves bowling and it's very selfish of me kan? New year resolution: Improve my bowling skill!

lina@happy family said...
