My second invite to Singapore Slingers - not a drink. hehe....
This time, Jaymes' wish came true (and it's his birthday next week!), thanks to Nic. We were also given a corporate box seating where we had finger food, chips, beer and wines! *burp*
We were so close to the action, we could feel the bumps where we were sitting. I'm going to be so pampered by the VIP treatment at every event. :P
Tickets sales for this game exceeded beyond expectation. It was the biggest ever attendance to date for a Slingers game in 3 seasons. Filipinos working and living in Singapore turned out in full force.
They were there for James Yap, a star of the visiting team. He is the husband of Kris Aquino, who's the daughter of the former President of the Philippines, Corazon Aquino.
Next to our corporate box was local artiste, Gurmit Singh. :)
Filipino spectators outnumbered all other nationalities. There were lots of boo-ings at the Slingers and at one moment, things got ugly when a fan of the Slingers chided them. Abuses and even a water bottle were hurled at his party.
At over 2m, the sweet Eric Sandarin towers above EastCoastLife and Jaymes!
It was a fantastic game! Slingers won, with beautiful scores from Darren Ng and Eric Sandarin. There are other cuties like John Fitzgerald, Shane McDonald (swoons, a hot favourite with the girls), Armien Kirkland....etc. After the game, we got to chat, get their autographs and have a photo with them.
EastCoastLife and Jaymes with Dr Darren Ng. Not only is he a great basketball player, he also plays the piano. Wow! Multi-talented guy. :)
Check out these cool guys on the next two Sundays. You will love them. :)
