How to win at this Pokemon Go thing

4 months ago / married life

Do you wanna be the very best?

The husband is the I-proclaim-for-him Master of all Pokemon Masters - I mean have you seen his surname? The game was practically created FOR him.

So come, let me as a traitor wife, tell you the secrets to winning at this Pokemon thing:

STEP 1: SELL YOUR CAR

Never mind that it's where you first asked your then-girlfriend (NOW WIFE) to "want to go steady mai?" and where you guys had your first kiss. Too much info? Sorry.

TO BE VOID OF FEELINGS IS THE FIRST STEP OF ATTAINING ENLIGHTENMENT.

STEP 2: BUY A NEW CAR

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.

(But actually, it's just a Honda lah lol.)

STEP 3: TELL YOUR WIFE THAT SHE DRIVES VERY WELL

And that you feel much safer and secure when she is the one behind the wheels.

This is where I'm supposed to post a photo of me in my car but I don't have it so here's a photo of me in a F1 simulator that I recently drove while doing a series of Facebook Live videos for #GetActiveSG.

Obviously you can tell from that face that I'm totally Lewis Hamilton in the making.

STEP 4: BE A GENTLEMAN

Tell your wife that you are NOT in a rush to get home. That you want to spend more time in the car with her, like the good ol' roadtrip days in Australia.

Think roadtrip and sunsets...

STEP 5: 50 IS THE MAGIC NUMBER

Tell her to go at 50km/h. Better yet, praise her when every car around you overtakes your vehicle.

STEP 6: SKIP ALL EXPRESSWAYS

Cause connectivity sucks in the KPE it's all about the ride. The longer, the better.

STEP 7: ASK HER TO STOP SUDDENLY IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE

"But everybody's looking at me?!" she might ask.

To which you can reply, "It's ok honey. You're a female driver. People will understand."

This should allow you to catch some nonsense very important Pokemon,

STEP 8: TELL HER TO CONTINUE DRIVING FOR ANOTHER HOUR OR SO

If she starts to sound angry at this point, you DO NOT get angry yourself. Remember, being void of all feelings is the fundamental of everything.

Just calmly tell her, "You look so cute when you're annoyed!"

"Just like my Pikachu!"

And smile. The wider the grin, the better.

One hour later, if you're still alive, you should have collected yourself 12 Pokemons.

And that's how, my friend, you become a Pokemon Master.
