So Aprub Ka Sa Ginawa Ng Gilas - Nationalistic Ka Na?

Minsan lang talaga ay sumusobrang KITID na!

Huwag po natin lagyan ng kulay ng politics ang lahat ng ating makikita - so, kung kinampihan mo ang mga players natin sa Gilas sa nangyaring gulo laban sa Boomers, feeling mo e NATIONALISTIC ka na?

And if you condemned the act e parang napaka-UNPATRIOTIC ka na? Wag naman maging BOBO.

SPORTS po ang BASKETBALL at hindi Gyera! Kung gusto n'yo magpaka-PATRIOTIC umpisahan n'yo sa pagpuna sa ginagawa ng China sa teritoryo ng Pilipinas. Ngayon kung wala kayong balls to do that - SHUT UP na lang.

Una, lahat po ng mga manlalaro sa FIBA ay may mga sinumpaan na OATH of SPORTSMANSHIP. Kahit po mga sportsfest ng baranggay may mga ganyan. Although, it's not uncommon na may mga gulo o away na mangyayari -that oath makes sure that whatever happens, the committee will not tolerate it specially inside the court no matter what the reason is.


Ngayon ang problema sa statement ni Terrence Romeo sa Twitter is that instead of admitting to the mistakes and apologize for what happened - is that he took his anger to the people who condemned the act and indirectly called them as being unpatriotic.

Pisikal na laro ang basketball, alam ng lahat ng manlalaro na may tirahan talaga na nangyayari sa loob ng court, pag nakita ni Ref syempre FOUL pag hindi e di swerte mo. Psychological din ang laban, trash talking is also common to bring a player out of his game - that's why aside from training physically, a player should also be mentally ready for everything. "Get your head in the game" sabi nga sa Highschool Musical.

Kahit saan pong anggulo tignan, mali po yun nangyari and BOTH side (Australia and Philippines) should apologize for it! Because it violates the Oath of Sportsmanship.

Ngayon, meron din naman iba na ang sisi ay binigay lahat sa Pilipinas - MALI din yun! Kahit sino pa ang nagsimula, pero kung pumatol ka at tinuloy ang gulo - meron ka pa ring pananagutan. Ganun ka STRICT ang oath na yan lalo na sa National or International level.

Hindi po pinag-uusapan dito ang kulay ng balat o kung sino ang nagsimula ng gulo. Ang problema ay nagkaroon ng gulo at eto ay dapat i CONDEMN ng lahat ng nagmamahal sa sport na eto.

Kung gulo at bakbakan ang gusto n'yo - maling sport ang pinapanood n'yo, mag boxing at wrestling na lang po kayo.

Souvenirs From My Recent Events

ONE of the best part of attending blogging events is that you get souvenirs. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜

While I don't attend events for that sake, having something worthwhile from a certain occasion is a great way to help me remember what happened especially now that my memory is not as sharp as it used to.

Here are some of the things that I have recently posted on my IG account:

I got this one when I attended the grand media launch of Feng Shui Queen Marites Allen's Feng Shui App.


I got this wrist band from the advance screening of Deadpool 2 at SM Aura Premier.


This Samsonite Travel Luggage was a freebie during the launch of the Acer Philippines and Samsonite Back To School promo.

And these souvenirs from the BUM X PEPSI Collection launch and fashion show event in Trinoma.

I know that I would be letting go of these stuff eventually some time in the future and so I take photos to help me remember that I once had these and have been a part of the event from where I got it from.
