On a Saturday afternoon, I braved the heat and the scorching sun to make my way to unknown territory where I've never gone before, all that to go...........for a polo match.
Okay, it may sound unlike me since I know nothing much about polo but hey, there's always a first for everything, right? No? Okay. You'll know why I'm there later on. LOL.
The rain started to pour out of a sudden during my journey and as quickly as it came, it went away just as fast while I'm trying to locate where exactly I was.
Anyway, it's the Finals and the decision for the winner, 2nd place and 3rd and 4th place after earlier rounds during the weekdays. The playing teams were defending champion La Boheme, La Pampa - GTM, Jennzilla and Butterfly Twists:
I started off with some Chivas cocktails which is also available to chase the throat dryness away:
While the rain stopped after I made it to the Polo ground, the weather throughout the day was hit with sporadic rain rendering the playing condition challenging. Nonetheless, the valiant ladies polo players continued on despite the rain.
La Pampa - GTM consisting of players Fazila Filippi, Melissa Tiernan, Claire Donnelly and Sarah Wiseman manage to win the tournament against previous winner La Boheme with a 4½ - 4 scoreline while the 3rd place was captured by team Butterfly Twists as they defeated Jennzilla with a score of 6½ to 4.
