I can’t remember the last time I went to Cantada Sports Complex. Stepping into the place reminded me of the days when I was so fit and tanned. Yes, it has been that long. Six months may not seem that long, but it does feel like it. Although it was my last-minute decision to not play because of my unusual work schedule, I decided to watch anyway. I didn’t think that it was going to take much energy from me to watch a one-day tournament. Did I have fun? Let’s just say that I made the right decision spending the entire day with these girls instead of sleeping at home
Most of the games were fun to watch. I’m just not sure if it was because players were good or because I missed the game itself. I missed seeing the sun up high. Because of work, the only time I see sun is when it’s about to set. In fact, my nose got sunburned despite not playing. I’m that sensitive to sun now.
At the end of the tournament, Dzi and Alyssa placed 4th, while Fille and Bea bagged the championship! Ate Karla and Sharah were able to join the quarter finals but failed to win for the semis. For both girls who haven’t trained for a long time, they were pretty good.
After the championship, we decided to have dinner at BCG. Unfortunately, the moment we left Cantada, the rain started pouring HARD. When we arrived Fort to find a place to eat, my flats, made of cloth, were soaked wet. I had to buy slippers from Ipanema (Ateneo Open’s sponsor, by the way) because I was having a hard time walking with those wet flats. While walking around, trying to find a restaurant with a free table, I bumped into a couple of old St. Scho classmates. I’ve been trying to see Heidi for the longest time, and there we were.
