Finally we managed to book a slot in the halls and got enough kaki for a futsal game. This would be the second time i have played futsal in Glasgow. I am missing those college times when futsal was a weekly affair.

A sunny day! But we were playing indoor. So it doesn't matter. But i am still happy.

Goal post. It is quite different from those we had back in Malaysia.
This one is wider but short.

Kokim taking a shot. It seems that my cameraphone could not capture fast motion

Nabi's turn to take the shot with Darren as the goalkeeper. Both also acting pro....

Final group picture!

Having the gym membership really did changed our sedentary lifestyle a bit. I kinda took every chance i have to exercise. Never in my life i am so enthusiatic in exercising, going to gym and swimming. Worse still is that i do it not for my own health, but more to get the full value of pounds that i had paid for the membership. However, initiative is good. HAHA! Looking forward to more games, be it basketball or anything....
