It was one of the best days in my life. It is rare to watch international talent play on Philippine soil. So, despite the far location, we decided to drop by and enjoy the matches!

This was the final match of the day. I really thought that South Korea will just obliterate the Philippines. But, no, they put up a fight and I am so proud of the girls!

Good Game


It was a 3-set loss against the 10th best team in the world. The time when they didn’t habe their ace, Kim Yeon Koung, the team was able to be in step with the Koreans.

But, alas, the coach, not warning to experiment further, had no choice but to put her in. 

It was still a strong performance for the Philippines but it was just not enough. This game revealed the strengths and opportunities for improvement of the NT.

Still proud of the girls and what they achieved so far! I am sure that some of the players are now being scouted against.

We held the leveling event for the company volleyball tournament. It was fun. And I definitely learned that a lot of employees are very interested in playing volleyball! We are now planning on forming a volleyball club for the company where we can play on a regular basis!

That’s me trying to be a setter, by the way.
