Badminton: A good Sports!

Badminton, my kinda sport…

Sweet as Caramel

Playing Badminton was a good exercise. It will stretch out your body. It is an easy way to forget everything. I think so. If you’re mad, you can hit the shuttlecock as strong as you want. It’s really enjoyed to hit the ball continuously. Any moves can do. Any style of hitting will do. You can hit as long you can.

Playing with the professional was cool as your have a match with him/her. It feels that you’re a professional too. And yet you’re just enjoying the game.

Anyone can play it. Whatever place you have, it may be on street or in front of your house, don’t waste time to go to the badminton court; it’s just wasting of money for the rent of it.

One thing that will block you is the wind and sun, if you’re playing outside the house. Difficult to play, the shuttlecock will wind…

SPI Globalympics…Badminton Tournament…

………..I could still remember my SPI Days when I was one of the proponents who started SPI’s first Sports Fest…. That was way back 2005..My first year of being an SPI employee..I started being a Pre-editor then raise the ranks to team leader then Supervisor….Due to the love of sports, a group of sports enthusiasts including me decided to form a Sports and Mountaineering Club and I was voted to be the 1st President……My first project being the head of the club was to lure more employees to join the club for us to prove to the management we can do a project or event on our own…We were only about 300 employees then and majority joined our club…We tried to lobby for funds to stage the Sports fest here in Dumaguete being a new site..Sad to say, we were declined due to budget constraints…That didn’t make us give up…We raise some funds and to cut the story short, the FIRST SPI Sports Fest was staged with the following events played….Basketball Men/Women, Volleyball Men/Women, Badminton Men/Women, Table Tennis Men/Women, Chess, Darts and Bowling…..

Whew!!!!WE have proven to the management we indeed can do things if we just wanted it….with that successful Sports fest….we were given the go signal to stage it yearly with an allotted budget……and to this point……I am still helping them run the badminton event…..Congrats to all the winners!!!!!!!

…..When I’m homesick, I might feel nostalgic for familiar things like my family, friends, pets, house, neighborhood, loved ones, favorite sports/hobbies. Now that I’m away from my family because of this important field immersion training for my new job, making myself busy is somewhat a remedy to me… But what will happen next after the regular 8 hour office work? I go back to the house we are staying and try consuming the remaining hours of the day playing my favorite computer game —- NBA Live 2012….So fulfilling to win against Lebron and Durant and seeing Kobe win over them in dramatic fashion.. The dunks, 3 point shooting and long range jump shots….But that would also make me a couch potato and someday would lead to obesity and RHD….Leading to the worst dreaded Pulmonary Embolism or even heart attack  due to high amount of low density cholesterol……

It’s been a month now since I first set foot in this rustic Cebu Municipality of Santander… They said  this town is full of mystery to be discovered yet I have never been into  those places they considered very famous tourist spots….So what I did was to do some road run from their poblacion up to the fast craft pier and though I never had a chance to pass by any tourist spots, it will be fulfilling to just smell the breeze of sea air and fragrance of the trees within the scenery I am tackling….I would say, this place is something I look forward to discover…Its solemn aura…just captivating me……I’d surely continue my weekly road run..after all, it is also helpful in a healthy way…..Here are some pictures of me road running…….
