I remember during the first four (4) years of us doing the Visita Iglesia, we are going through the route of Trece – Indang – Mendez – Tagaytay – Silang – Dasma – Imus – Kawit – Noveleta – Tanza. But since last year, we are being transported by our car named Peter giving a lot more of convenience for us. And if we were doing just the two of us (dadi and myself) before now we are five when we did it.
Even with the comfort of just sitting in the car my prince still complaint about being tired and ask his dad to carry him at our last stop for the thirteenth and fourteenth station.
Last Saturday February 27, 2016 was the first women’s voleyball match of Ateneo Lady Eagles against De La Salle’s Lady Spikers for the 78th Season of UAAP (University Athletic Association of the Philippines). The latter had the chance to regain victory in this elimination game after several series of losses in two years from ALE.
I remember I used to be on the green’s side not only that they’re bearing my favorite color but because I used to be a part of the company who supports them (with its logo on their jersey) until such time that I was greatly dismayed about how Abby Maraño is playing on the court (apology for her supporters – just my opinion). I didn’t like the way she make faces with too much arrogance every time she was able to block an opponent’s spike or every time her drop-ball succeeds. Probably it is indeed a great honor to having been executed such great blocking/offense power but I wish there is a better way of showing that kind of pride.
Having said that, Alyssa Valdez on the other hand impressed me that much. No matter how remarkable the way she plays the game she remains humble wearing those big smiles in an unoffensive manner. I have loved her since then.
Yesterday, I saw how one of the Spiker’s player portrayed the same conceit I’ve seen from Tiyang Abby and it was indeed very disappointing. Yes maybe it is just being seen on-court for they say that off-court is a different story since they are in fact friends. The point here is not about the friendship -it is about the character a real athlete should possess on and off court. It is about becoming a model especially for youth who tends to idolize a player.
Nothing really personal against them as I know they work hard to be in their position but just a piece of advice for them to keep humility above all because at the end of the day attitude is everything.
We just have opened a new small business at home. It’s a selling of newly cooked finger foods such as french fries, some chinese dumplings, fishball, chicken balls, squid balls, cheese sticks and a lot more. My uncle, his wife and one of his sons are taking care of. The opening can be considered really successful with a good amount of sales obtained just for that day.
They did with a music coming from the mobile phones with its sounds coming out of the bluetooth speaker of cousin but I am not sure of they still neededed a kind of speakon connector for that.
It is a good thing now that people in the neighborhood have a place to go to whenever they need some snacks. We also serve ice cold softdrinks.
