I learned that the wrist action derived from blog-stalking all of you does NOT improve my tennis skills in any way whatsoever. I don't get it. The hours upon hours of mouse clicking should at least help with the wrist pronation in serves and rallies!
Another thing I don't get is that in the many years I've played tennis, I have not gotten any award ever. None. Nada. Nill. Zilch. While I've only been blogging for just 2 months now and already I got this one award from the fabulous Sofie of ModeDiktat.
Sofie, I promise to work on this very soon and so sorry for picking this up weeks late. I thought I would have come up with a list by now but I need more inspiration, and thus more blog-stalking!

Too bad there's no award for showing up with the best tennis outfit or I would have won that, NO DOUBT! Oh heck, win or lose, I know my outfit is a WINNER, bwahaha!
Sorry, humility is a virtue my fingertips has yet to learn. Trust me, I tried to stop them from typing those words but they're just unstoppable and simply won't listen to me.
Bad fingers! Bad fingers! .

Wearing the same dress that Maria Sharapova wore in the "I Am Pretty" Nike commercial for US Open '06. The annoying Sharapova screech do not come with the dress, thank goodness!

The good thing is, the hubz was ranked #1 this week. And I therefore invoke on Section 10.08.02 of the Marriage Manual which instructs that tennis rankings must be shared between couples. Afterall, how good is this vow we once took: "For loves or for aces, in singles and in teams, til double faults do us part".

If you don't hear from me for days, it means I'm desperately trying to improve my miserable tennis ranking OR I'm glued on TV watching the US Open OR I'm attending Luau parties. Luau?! Where the heck did that come from?!

OK, serious now. Someday, when (take note of the usage of “when” NOT “if) fate requires of me to get up on a stage to collect a trophy and say a little speech, I will do so wearing this Diane von Fursternberg wrap vest worn over the Nike dress. Hey, a girl can dream, right?
Here's to BIG dreams, fabulous outfits and bottom-most tennis ranking!
Happy mid week everyone!
