Kegler Siti turns to gardening to keep herself occupied

PETALING JAYA: There is a famous quote from Bill Watterson, cartoonist and the author of comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, that goes: “If your knees aren’t green by the end of the day, you ought to seriously re-examine your life.”

Since the conditional movement control order was imposed last week, national bowler Siti Safiyah Abdul Rahman (pic) can now be seen pottering around her home with her newfound hobby.

Siti has picked up gardening as she feels that it teaches her about patience and to a certain extent, about hard work.

“As training has been suspended, I’ve found something new that I’ve quite enjoyed... collecting plants.

“So far, I kept myself busy nurturing them and it can take a bit of my time but it kind of calms me. And I’ve been spending more time with my family too, ” said Siti.

“I also watched a lot of bowling videos including mine to keep me abreast with the latest technique. My time at home thus far has been fruitful.”

Siti also revealed that she is not pleased with her performance during the latest roll-offs.

“It took me a while to get back into my game after the three-month layoff. I felt that I could have done better.

“Anyway, it’s all good as I can analyse my game and see what went wrong.

“Since the CMCO, there’s not much the bowlers can do. We’ve been doing our week-day workouts through Skype with our coach and gym instructor, ” added Siti, who won last year’s Thailand Open.
