39-year old Football Crazy Person has been in love with football ever since he attended Singapore National Team’s matches at Kallang Stadium in the roaring 80’s. Has been a goalkeeper for a good part of the decade for a variety of teams but joined WaF4H last year because of the team’s mission and values.

WaF4H does not only allow participants to play football, holistically the team concentrates on various other aspects as well such as food, nutrition and personal well-being. Hopefully WaF4H can lengthen this writer’s career, be it in the football field or in the part-time writing arena as well.

God knows how many other different activities I have tried. Rock climbing, camping, even calligraphy writing at one point in time.

But no matter how many times I tried to pick up other hobbies, I always gravitate towards my very first “crush”. Football.

Real reasons why you must STRETCH? 
When you stretch, your muscle lengthens. Muscle lengthening provides greater range of motion (ROM), which is important to  individuals who have decreased ROM due to injury, a sedentary lifestyle or aging. Increased flexibility will also decrease our chances of injury and helps to enhance sports performance.

A well-stretched muscle helps you in the process of recovery after exercise, ridding you of excessive muscle soreness. It also decreases your risk of injury as your muscle and surrounding areas of the muscles become supple and flexible.

If you love coffee, decaffeinated is the way to go, even though it still contains caffeine, it is of a lower dosage.
