The End of A Chapter

Boot Camp Day 6 = Day off!

(Yeah, like it hasn't been for the past 5 days.)

Well, because it's
  • First day of Chinese New Year
  • Australian Open Men's Singles Final

Wen and I couldn't get last-minute tickets to Rod Laver Arena, so we watched it on the big screen at Federation Square with the rest of Melbourne.

Federation Square was beaming with energy tonight.

We didn't go early enough and most of the good seats were taken by the time we arrived. Luckily, American Express set up a marquee exclusively for their gold card members. Being an Amex card holder does come with its own perks at times like this. As long as they keep sponsoring Aus Open, I'm holding on to my card. :D

As predicted, Australian Open 2006 was concluded with Federer's victory.

Both Wen and I think we're gonna feel a little empty when we wake up tomorrow with no tennis to watch. What are we gonna do?!

Okay, there's no need to remind me that I have an exam to study for, thank you very much. *Rolls eyes*

It's been a great 2 weeks, fellas. Thank you for dropping by and thanks for leaving your comments. It wouldn't have been nearly as fun without your company.

Here's a lame joke from a friend, "Oh, you're watching Fed (Fededer) at Fed (Federation)? Fed x Fed = Fed2 (Federation Square)."

Till next year, take care and stay happy.

Daddy Nick: Ugh! I'm feeling sick already. :(

Jacky said...

I have the same feeling... no tennis to watch.. :(

The match between Federer and Baghdatis was simply awesome. How on earth Federer won the last 2 sets so easily? (6-0, 6-2)

MisSmall said...

Jacky: The pressure from Baghdatis probably brought out the best game in Federer? There is a reason why he's world's no.1 player.

Let's look forward to French Open? Starting on 28 May 2006. Ha!
