Friends and their Interests By June 20, 2012 Tags: , , , , , 2 Comments

In the past few years, fun runs and marathons have been a source of fitness and recreation in the Philippines. Inspired by Run For Your Lives, Outbreak Manila adds a new twist to the typical 5k run. Race towards the finish line and go against time, obstacles and yes, FLESH-EATING ZOMBIES.

Brace yourselves. This time, you aren’t just running for any cause. You’ll be running for your life.

For details on this video, click here:

Outbreak Manila BGC will be held on July 28, 2012 in BGC, Taguig.
This time, it’s a night run. The thrill and the fun gets better. We are on the verge of Zombie Apocalypse!


The Travel Factor 2010 Olympics

Travel Factor By July 26, 2010 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Here is a photo of all the participants after the brief awarding ceremony under the big tent. Some of the team members of Conquer (green) and UBBE (blue) have already left before we got the chance to tell them there is a group photo.

We all trooped to the Bat Cave after for more bonding time over dinner as well as to celebrate one of our friends’ promotion at work.

Over all, the TF Olympics was a success and so was the after-party and dinner. It felt really good to be with TF friends again and just laugh at the silliest things. Thank you Travel Factor for yet another wonderful time spent with all of you. You are the bestest thing traveling ever got for me. 🙂

Angku and Lia at the Travel Factor 1st Team Olympics Meralco Field August 15, 2009

Angku and Lia at the Travel Factor 1st Team Sports Olympics Meralco Field August 15, 2009

I really, really wanted to play games and badminton for this event. I got all very excited when the event was first announced. I had wanted to play badminton for so long. The last time I played badminton was in 2005, when I was still living in El Nido. I took it up as a class in college and that was even more long ago. I could not even remember the rules of the game.

Then the wedding invitation came just a little more than a week before the event and it was a wedding I could not not go to.

So I said I was just gonna play the relay games in the morning but Ryan got confused with the time of his arrival from Munich-Amsterdam. Lia and I waited for him to get home and arrived at the Meralco field at about forty-five minutes before noon – missing the relay games completely.

No matter, it was nice to see our Travel Factor friends play and just have fun. Lia had such a great time watching too from her stroller and meeting people and most especially Mathea, who is 4 months older than she is.

I am not really very sporty. I don’t know any ball games. I don’t play any ball games. I do swim and surf. There are no balls there. I play badminton. No balls there either. Just cocks. Shuttle cocks.

So anyway, the last time I played badminton was back when I was living in El Nido. And we only played in the middle of the street, or sometimes, if the court is free and devoid of basketball players, at the municipal multi-purpose court.

But I’m gonna go play this time. It’s all in the spirit of fun… and games.. and camaraderie.. and so on and so forth. 😉
