Pool & food are two of my favorite passions. Add great company to the mix and you have the complete recipe for a good time. Enjoy. Happy shooting ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŽฑ

Here's another great example of a smart 2-way shot from the other player. A smart play - playing both offense and defense simultaneously. Although he missed the pocket, he managed to hide the 4 behind the 8 ball quite nicely PLUS put cue ball in a tough position frozen to the rail. I had to reassess this tricky layout. Due to traffic in that area, had to be extra cautious of not hitting other balls after contact, which might put me in unfavorable position for the 5. Ahhh... gotta love 3 cushions ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜

This shot here remains as one of my fave position play. Noticed how I am sharked not onceโ˜๏ธ but twiceโœŒ๏ธ lol. Happens a lot actually, but that's the challenge and beauty of playing in a real poolhall environment. Loud music, crowds, sharking, senseless chatters, etc.... ALL are part of the element. Learn to deal with it, ovecome it and focus. Sometimes it's not about who's the better player, but about who focused better ๐Ÿ‘€๐ŸŽฑ๐ŸŽฏ

The famous Singapore Chilli Crab. Bro really wanted to try this dish out, so he enlisted my help. Have to say, bro has come a long way. Instead of instructing him what to do, we were exchanging ideas. As a result of our joint effort this dish came out beautifully. Bold and full of flavors ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜‹. A family that cooks together stays together. .

As a child, I love๐Ÿ˜ swings. I mean, who doesn't? So you can imagine how happy I was when I spotted this sweet looking thing. The cutest swing ever ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ฏ. Today I am reminded how important it is to stay grounded. To earn the things you want; fight for the things you believe in; remain true to self and others, but above all... never be afraid to let go and be free ๐Ÿค—.

If we weren't playing last pocket 9 ball, he would have ran out on me easily. A strong, smooth player. He tried a clever two way shot - a 3-rail bank and safe that, luckily for me, left me with a slight opening just enough to slid past the 9 to pocket the 8 into corner pocket. You see how I have a lovely cheerleading squad all rooting for me to win ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™Œ haha (yea right ๐Ÿ˜’) ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Poolhall bars are great if you want to just chill with your buddies, have a few beers and shoot some casual pool. But sometimes it can get a bit too loud and rowdy. I hear people cussing for each ball they make... or don't make ๐Ÿ˜. And hardly any 9 ball action ๐Ÿ˜”. I can see why mother has always warned me to stay away from these places. "Too late, mom. Sorry." ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™‰

Moral of this pool painting? ๐Ÿค”

Never sit or stand behind a pool player in action. If you do, be ready to suffer the consequences๐Ÿ˜‚. Be forewarned! ๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜ข

I don't often play nor record 8 ball games, but this particular layout was so unique I had to. Balls were evenly spread out with no clusters, no rails, no frozen balls. Simply perfect. I don't think I've ever encountered an 8 ball spread quite like this one before. I actually enjoyed this round lol ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ™Œ. Had fun manuevering around the little maze and being careful not to cause any unnecessary disturbance to the surrounding balls. Because the last thing I want is to complicate a nice, easy run out. ๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜

Don't know why but I particularly like shots utilizing the corner... perhaps because it accounts for 2 cushions lol. So overall this is a 4-cushion shot. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ

If I had to choose between a combo or a carom... I'll take a carom shot of course! No surprise there lol. What's surprising, however, is the way he laughed when I made that carom 6-9 call. What's so funny? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜

The triumphant moment when a pool player beats a seasoned 3 cushion player. This was my last point game for the win and he was absolutely confident I wouldn't score, since it was a difficult shot. So much so that he made a side bet. Well...I took my sweet time to think the shot through ๐Ÿค” and went for it. He couldn't believe I made it and called "bullshit" haha ๐Ÿ˜‚. It was all in fun. Gosh! I can't recall having this much fun in billiards in a while. Highlight of my night. Guess you can't trump beginner's luck! ๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Š
