I signed up for the LWMST though I had a prior important engagement because I wanted to remember my old friend. He passed away just days after e-mailing me in Australia to write a 4-verse poem for the proposed Ong Yeam Chim Memorial Tournament last year. He was extremely pleased with my poem and had intended to read it at OYCM Tourney. Alas, he did not make it and the tourney was cancelled.

I felt guilty that I did not make the effort to pen a similar tribute to Leonard Wong. I have a strong suspicion that this omission led to my record 10 losses in a row. LOL

My racks were unbelievably horrid throughout, especially in my games with the top players who took all the blanks and S's while I regularly had 4 of the same vowels and Q, C's or V's with them! The only time I had decent tiles was in Game 1, with Jocelyn. However, the 2 blanks I had caused me to lose time figuring out a bingo and cost me the game when I went overtime. What a punishment!

However, Gim Sai said I was probably saving my luck for our Genting visit on Monday. She was right.

R.I.P. Leonard Wong!
