birthday girl...

" for happy times shared through the years, 

for the loyalty, love, laughter and tears.
for the special things only you can do [wink!],
for all these and more, I thank you!
time and space may separate us,
but heartstrings know no end.
i'm so proud to call you my sister,
prouder still to call you my friend. "

vy, you'll always have me watching your back. i love you!

that's where i am now as far as my giddiness for the coming holidays is concern. i just wrote to my senpai desperately asking for a few days off. i know i'm wishing against fate here... we'll be at the middle of study for next year's project on those dates. haaaaaayyy... if i am the senpai, i would probably be more inclined to say 'no'. tsk. but i'm hoping my mail will strike a maagang-pamasko chord in him. :)

now, all i can do is wait, wait and wait... and think of things to do or places to go should the worst scenario happen.. arayko.

any suggestions?

yep, that's the first thing that pops out of my mind when asked of philippine sports. billiards is the closest in my list but the popularity of basketball is simply undeniable. playing on dirt or hardcourt doesn't really matter. in the gym or in the street makes no difference. for as long as there is the "basket", the game is on.

that i can compare with baseball in japan.

no question, the pba is widely considered as asia's oldest professional basketball league and that the country has been the dominating force in asia in the past. winning asian games gold medals in the 50's and early 60's, a number of gold medals in asian basketball conference and a consistent gold medalist in sea games since 1977.

with that popularity and dominance, i often wonder why we still don't have any player in the nba.

so close with johnny abarrientos though.

japan on the other hand, which is known in the baseball world, (with major league stars like ichiro and matsui) but not in basketball, will now also be recognized in that field, as the phoenix suns officially included 5-9, 24-year old, yuta tabuse in their 2004-2005 roster. this marks tabuse as the first japanese player to make it to the nba.

now, i continue to wonder.

but, i still believe somebody will finally make it...someday.
