One of the things I enjoy most about pole is hanging out with my pole girl friends. We affectionately refer to each other as our ‘pole bitchezz’.
It’s been about 3 years since I first stepped into Bobbi’s Pole Studio Singapore, and in that time I’ve made a whole new bunch of girl friends from al different walks of life. Our collective obsession binds us and transcends all age gaps, occupations, and personalities.
I can chat with them on What’sApp all day and night, and sometimes we do! But it’s not all about pole of course.
In the past couple of years that I’ve gotten closer to all my pole bitches, we’ve opened up about all the other parts of our lives too. Work, love, family, etc.. We’ve been to each others’ homes, met up for non-pole related outings, and eaten about a hundred times of our own body weights in food together by now.
Pole was a social activity for me right from the beginning, and it still is. When an activity is shared with a friend, it gives you extra motivation to keep at it. And when you share it with an entire group of friends, it becomes so much more enjoyable!
But I’ve having some separation anxiety right now, cos one of my fave pole bitchezz (who happens to share the same name as me in real life) is flying to Hong Kong for a while to chase a big pole-related dream. (Whoo-hoo!)
This, happening on the same week that our beloved, long-term studio front-desk manager is leaving Bobbi’s!
Heck, it being holiday season, lots of my friends are flying or have already flown off for extended vacations as well!
But that’s okay, cos I have more than enough beloved pole bitchezz here to keep me company and go for pole practice with. And in the meantime, we will all be chatting away on What’sApp anyways!
Happy holidays! xoxo
