Making Sports as a Career

Yes, I have added sports as part of my career since my grade school days. And now I am giving it a little boost. I have to do it in a more serious way as I have to compete- maybe not that serious competition but something more like official. Just last Friday, we went out to scout for a badminton outfit and I am glad that we did not fail. I was able to get a bottom piece for a change. A change indeed as it was a skirt. This will be the first time for me to wear such. I usually come to a badminton court in either jogging pants or shorts. 
I just hope this will help as I was told that it can give a more comfy feeling while playing the game. I am just so excited about it.

GT: Movie for An Enemy

I guess I was forced to become a movie enthusiast on this month’s GT. Honestly, I do not watch movies that frequent. My friends are actually making fun of me every time we get inside a movie house as I am expected to fall asleep no matter how good a film is.
I preferred to be on the positive side of a story for this week’s theme and has picked something which portrays a good outcome between enemies.
I typed on google the phrase “movie about reconciliation” and was directed to:

As usual I have not seen this movie, I believe this has not been shown yet. It may not necessarily  illustrate a scenario between enemies but it stresses the importance of forgiveness, accepting our responsibility for the mistakes we have made and the pain those mistakes have caused others.

No matter how painful the things that we have gone through it would still be best for us to open our hearts and be more than willing to forgive anybody who hurt us.

Last night we had our first volleyball practice for our sport fest. This is my first time again playing this game after three (3) years of rest. Brought about by too much excitement, I played a lot. I had fun playing especially when we were on scoring betting for a can of soft drink. My team was lost in the first set but we had our revenge on the next. I enjoyed the game without even noticing that my arms were really in pain. When I get home they were already swollen and now they had bruises.

my right arm – with bruises not obvious… hehe!
Our next game was scheduled on Saturday, hope I will no longer feel its pain and expect that I will not get to this point again.

PBW: Amicah’s Birthday

Amicah is the daughter of my friend’s (Beth) sister (Ate Mae). We have witnessed almost every important occasions of Ate Mae and Kuya Jeff’s life. 
From Ate Mae and Kuya Jeff’s wedding,
bridesmaids @ Tagaytay Highlands
 when Amicah came out and on her baptism,
Amicah’s Christening
and yesterday as it was Amicah’s first birthday:
Yesterday was really a fun-filled day celebrating Mic-mic’s first birthday. There were games and prizes, clowns with their balloon and magic tricks, dancing Susie spaghetti (the mascot) and of course Shakey’s food served before us.
We just missed a person here, and it was dhang. It was the first time she wasn’t able to join us as she is now based in Dubai.
Hope we can get together as soon as she comes back.



BadmintonTeam Tag – Fartners

August 17 when we (Isay and Me) registered to join the badminton women doubles event for our upcoming sports fest. The following day we had our first practice. I am hoping Isay did not make a wrong decision in choosing me as her partner. She was one of the defending champions in the past. I don’t want her to be put to shame; with that I should do my best.
In a game, there is always a winning party in the end. But according to my partner, though “to win” is our priority still “to enjoy” is our secondary objective. While we have to play the game so seriously, we should accept the fact the we are not perfect in any sense. What is important is that we have exerted our best effort to compete. If we lose it then it is basically part of the game but if we make it to the top then that is simply the sweetest thing about a battle. However, we should always be positive in our outlook and must maintain within us the virtue of a healthy competition, keep within ourselves the etiquette of a professional player.
We have already passed the medical clearance portion and we are now looking forward to having enough time to practice as we should still improve our weakness es and strengthen our chemistry as a team.
Well, all these things I have mentioned are just a background of what I have actually thought of. I was thinking of our team’s name and I happened to consider “Fartners” which was derived from our group’s name “Tropang Utot”. Tropa means group and utot means fart, and since it is just the two of us; we are just partners. Partners with an “f”.

Go Green Friday: Coi’s Green Costume

This is My Prince —> Macoi wearing his green Robin Hood costume I bought last November 2009 for his treat or trick activity.
I will never forget that instance as we came in late in the afternoon to the mall as there was a typhoon that struck our area during the morning.
But at least he was able to enjoy. Better late than never.

GT: Movie for Siblings

I have not really watched this flick but this is something I thought worth for sisters. I grew up without a sister beside me as I cannot withheld the fact that I was a product of a broken family. I have two (2) sisters from my father’s side and one (1) from my mother’s.Of course, we do have a lot of differences. Before, there are times that I envy them feeling like they took my parents away from me. But now that I am grown up woman  and a parent already, I guess I have nothing to envy at all.
Sisters can really be friends and rivals too. On the other hand, my friends are whom I have considered my sisters for a long time now. I even sometimes utter that I cannot live without them. We became rivals at times but we take things as a joke.
I remember back in college, we have this list of crushes but the funny thing is it turned out to be a “one for all- all for one” set-up. Anyways, those are for the purpose of infatuation only. Obviously, we can no longer do it to their husbands this time.
This will be my entry for this week’s GT.

Back to Book

When I was cleaning our sleeping area during the last weekend, I happened to get through my mini library. My attention then was caught by a book which was a gift for me.
It was given by my ex-boss and friend in the past New Year. I therefore realized that I am not yet done reading it and so I took it from there, put it on my table and brought it to office this morning.
Prior to going home after work, I read some of its pages which had really made me laugh.
Bo is indeed one of the best writers I have ever known. He is even good in preaching and all. I promise to read it within the week despite my busy blogging schedule as some of my office mates are waiting to have it borrowed from me.
By the way, my ex-boss has her blog as well. So please find time to visit here at Meowl: All in A Cat’s Life.

Green in Me

I simply love green. It’s my favorite color. Any shade of green will do – apple green, moss green, military green, mint green, neon green, light green and so on and so forth. It’s the same way as I love nature. Just last night I have done a sort of make-over to my blog’s design. Have you noticed it? Maybe not that much, as the color hasn’t change from green to green still.

The only thing that made me more like it is the personally chosen color combination of greens. Hehe! And the background with which symbolizes myself – leaf.

I really cannot explain further why I love this color. It’s just that for me green is pleasing to the eye and it makes me feel calm.

I preferred green as well to some of my personal belongings except for my dresses which I only have a few as I feel like it doesn’t blend well to my skin’s complexion.

But anyways I just love green. I can even ride on green jokes sometimes – that’s the green minded me.

And I never though a Meme like this exist, and so I joined for the first time…
