We've had this book 'Noisy Football Match' for quite some time now. It was a gift from our Aunt Marina who is just absolutely awesome at picking really wonderful reads. They boys have always loved this book. Largely because the panel on the very right could be pressed to make sounds of the football match. For example, if you press the picture of the referee blowing the whistle, you'd hear a "peet, peet" whistling sounds. There are cues in the book for when to press which buttons, which makes the book come ALIVE!
So it was absolutely an adventure, out of the pages of their storybook, when they went for their first ever football match. A good friend invited us to join him to watch the Final day of matches of the Nexx Lions Football Cup, which comprised of Under 19 players from clubs from around the world like Manchester United, Liverpool, Sporting Lisbon and even Singapore fielded an Under 19 team.
I was stoked to be able to support the u19 Liverpool team play against Sporting Lisbon. Too bad Liverpool didn't win, but it was still an awesome match. Sporting Lisbon played really well and it was really exciting to think that some of these young boys are going to be football giants like Ronaldo, Nani, Luis Figo in future!

We were initially nervous that the twins would be too wriggly and distract everyone else. And you know what, they did. They kept running up and down the grandstand. But everyone thought they were very very cute. At least I kept telling myself that, but who doesn't love a pair of excitable twins in matching football kits getting excited about football? And since we were in the VIP area, they had loads of places to run to and I could whisk them off to somewhere quiet if they needed a time out!
Of course, we came back to read the 'Noisy Football Match' and relived their real life experience! They are still talking about the match today! Can't wait for our next one! Thanks Uncle Sop!

|They kept asking to go down to the field! =) I'm sure they were thinking, "why are we here at a football stadium but not given any access to the football field?|
