Yesterday night, my date took me to the Singapore Turf Club. I live a short distance from the Turf Club but I've never considered going as I'm not into horse racing. But my date, me hubs (what did you thing?) got an invite from his colleague, let's call him Loon, and it sounded like fun.
Me hubs had to put on a borrowed tie and tuck in his shirt before he could enter the VIP area. No, they didn't make him comb his hair. Most of the people in the VIP area wore suits.
The next race was The New Paper Trophy race which we came to watch. With my win, I didn't want to bet anymore but I decided I would place 1 last bet. Since we were back at the VIP area, I couldn't observe the horses up close. Instead I watched them on the TV screen and I chose New Found Luck no. 6 for win and placing. It came in 3rd so I won $8. Actually I lost $2 since it was a $10 bet.
hubs are now part of the entourage. Here we are at the champagne room where the winner gets to pop a bottle of champagne. We drank orange juice because we don't drink and smoke. We're just gamblers.
I'm surprised I enjoyed myself so much. Mostly due to our guy, Loon who was such a great host. And absolutely no more horse racing bets for me. Hope you have a great weekend. I'll be sewing away.
