Real Sporty Vibes

I've always wanted to be an athlete but I haven't decided which sport should I give my full efforts on, until this day.

I, my brother and my cousins went to Philippine Sports Commission to, well, play sports. :)

Loving the athletic vibration here.
 I always wanted to play tennis and to be a professional athlete (a la Maria Sharapova) so we played tennis. We hired a coach because we're such noobies.
 My brotha Marc so stoked!  
Tennis Court

RG and Marc being trained by Coach Manuel. I was the "pulot girl" during that time and was taught the basics right after they were done. When it was my turn, I had a hard time just doing the basic techniques because the racket is big and heavy unlike that of the badminton's and it's been a while since I've had my last heavy physical activity. Yet I definitely enjoyed it and had then decided that this is going to be my ultimate sport. Hooray for future tennis sessions! 
This is the gymnastics area. My cousin Queennie is somewhere in there. She's competing for Gymnastics in different competitions around the world. She's really great.
 The Badminton Hall
 After tennis, we played Badminton. I looove the place! It's so nice to play here because you can really feel the energy of sportiness. And sports-minded people are  fun to watch!
 RG vs. Marc. Who will take the lead?
Their football field is really wide and big. I love this place! Kilig much!

If you want to feel the real sporty vibe, just come to Philippines Sports Commission (Vito Cruz) and experience different sports. Visit their website for more details.

This is so beautiful. Great music plus great fireworks show is a perfect combination.
