BMWMO 2014 (Part 2)

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

Assalamu'alaikum, y'all!!

Sorry it took too long to put the 2nd part of the BMWMO.  These pictures pretty much sums up our 2nd and final week of work..............

At least we were always on the screen right? Haha! It rained everyday except for ONE single day.  It rained during the finals too so the delays were really long.  We didn't do it all the way though.  The ball boys did it after we rolled the initial layer of water.

This lady was so hard to get a proper picture of.  The tournament's main attraction, Dominika Cibulkova!

Or as we'd like to call her, IKA.


It was against policy but I did it.  Can't help myself..........

Me with Jarmila Gajdosova from Australia.  We weren't suppose to take pictures with the players.  But rules were made to be broken at some point right?


Also got a picture with Ms. Renai Mattu from Astro.  A bit giddy at the time but can you blame me?


We celebrated Aji's birthday too.  And somebody got the ice treatment.  Haha! Happy birthday, Haziq!

Haha! John.  That guy cracks us up.  He strung most of the players' racquets.  He's a tennis coach too.

Some of us bought some new gear too.  Hehe..

For the doubles finals, it was Babos-Chan vs Kichenok-Savchuk.  Babos and Chan were the no. 1 seed for the tournament's doubles category.  They were pretty much the pair to beat.  It was a set each.  The 3rd deciding set was a super tie-break.  First to reach 10 points.  Surprise-surprise, Babos-Chan won.....

Next was the MAIN main event.  Center court was pretty much packed.  It was Dominika Cibulkova vs the 17 y/o Donna Vekic.

Vekic took the 1st set but 'IKA' rallied to get the 2nd set.  Then it went down to a tie-break.  First to 7.

Ali told us that we can go watch.  So we did!

Ain wasn't in there.  Sorry, Ain!


It was great seeing a live match.  It was so tense.  Of course we cheered for Donna.  Who doesn't like the underdog, right?  Aaaaaaand.  She won!!

It slowly dawned on me that our work was over.  There were lots of this.............

And this...........

But these 2 will always be my favourite.............

The following day, we went to Bangi.  Over there, you can find the cheapest but really worth it tennis gear.  Faris bought a new racquet.  Guess I won't be taking him on with his new racquet.  Bummer.  Then we had to send this little lady back.............

Most of us were burnt.  Daaaaamn


I'm not good with selfies.  Haha!! Ain wasn't around though cos she went back earlier that morning.

Well, that's the end of the 2 weeks.  Thanks to the people from Fuzzy Balls for giving us a chance to work with you.  Lots of ups and downs but it was damn worth it.  If my fellow crew are reading this, I messed lots of times, scolded some of you guys and also did some bad things.  I'm really sorry and I hope to see you all soon.  In Sya-Allah.


See you guys on the flip side!!

P.S: Just bought some new gear!  But it's not what you think
