Decided to go try something different yesterday and joined my officemates for their after-office-hours badminton games. I didn't have any gear or whatnots so it was kind of a pleasant twist when Gabby, Jen's husband, offered me his jogging pants. Digging through my stash at work, I found an unused TFC Tenth Anniversary black shirt and decided, what the heck, I might as well.
You have to understand, the last time I ever played Badminton was way back during the days bicycles were all called BMX and the most popular drink was Sunnydee and KoolAid. So imagine my surprise when I found myself actually getting back into the motions and getting the hang of the game real fast.
Unbelievably, after four games, my team won thrice. I guess all that time before playing and chasing after the shuttlecock that flew to the neighbor's roof paid off. That and the Tennis lessons I took a long time ago.
The next game is next week. I think I've found something to submerge myself in for a while.

SE7EN things that Scare Me:

SE7EN Thing I Like The Most
- Piggies. Stuffed toys of course. Real ones just remind me they're slaughtered for food. Which makes me sad.
- Having all the time I have to enjoy great entertainment ranging from Animated films. Especially ones that really touch emotions. Examples include My Neighbor Totoro, Akira, Princess Mononoke, Nausicaa and Mulan. To horror games, like Silent Hill, Kuon, Siren, Fatal Frame. To Brain Films, especially if they make you really stop and think for a moment. Examples include American Beauty, Pi. And Musicals. I love how theater and music can so seamlessly intertwine. And this holds true for musicals in film. Examples include Moulin Rouge, Avenue Q, Rent.
- Strong Women. Am a sucker for women who know who they are, what they want and how they want it. I love hearing how their minds work and how their words think. I love knowing they're in charge of thier lives and thier happy with themselves. Examples include: Jen Villacorte, Nikki Alfar, Bambi Gamban, Jac Ting Lim
- Having a chance to share my own views and stories through comics books or mini-movies that I make. I'm a storyteller at heart.
