[The DOC ANDY TAN BADMINTON CUP-ASPAC (2016-2017) was a great success as it was a unique experience for BEGINNERS who sort of stumbled into a real tournament event. The skilled players had their time mentoring and strategizing on how to guide their BEGINNER-TEAM-TANDEM into snatching a score. As I was too busy coordinating the event, I was unable to snap many photos; but I am sure many of those who attended-participated will eventually upload the photos in their respective FB accounts. The YELLOW TEAM skippered by Doc Andy Tan and Earl Elpa was declared CHAMP. First RUNNER-UP is the White Team skippered by Kattie Sy and Jose Mari Revilla. The SECOND Runner-UP slot went to the RED TEAM skippered by Christian David and Pinky Santos. Finally, the KALABASA AWARD went to the BLUE TEAM to where I belong. A BOODLE-FIGHT as shown in the right photo capped the half-day tourney. ASPAC is acronym for the ATENEO SCHOOLS PARENTS COUNCIL. See you all at the NEXT TOURNAMENT!!!!]
Nagkasubukan na ang lahat at okey ang naging BANAT,
YELLOW Team ang syang naging PAMBATO’T SIKAT1;
Aba may KNEELING SHOT2 pa si Doc ANDY,
Akala mo’y nag-GEGENUFLECT kay Mama MARY…
Sumegunda naman ang WHITE Team ni KATTIE,
Muntik pang mauwi sa KASO ang labanang HOTTIE3;
Aba’y nakia-alam na ang lahat ng mga PLAYERS,
Mabuti’t si Gen. PIANO4 umusal ng munting PRAYER…

Ang PANGATLO naman ay ang RED Team5,
Akala ko’y sila ang siyang MABIBITIN;
Dahil pana’y ang reklamo ni JULIET REMORQUE,
Shallow BENCH daw ang syang taglay nilang MARQUEE!6
[The RED TEAM which is skippered by Christian David and Daisy Gacura is shown in this photo with Daddy Max. The RED TEAM snatched the 2nd RUNNER-UP slot.]
Pero bumanat ng husto si RAFA FRANCISCO7,
Umani ng PANALO pati tandem ko TINALO;
Ako pa naman ang bumili ng KALABASA,
Yon pala’y sa BLUE Team8 ko ang squash ay ma-IPAPASA!
[Here is a photo of the BLUE TEAM skippered by Robert Tan and Pinky Santos with Daddy Max. The BLUE TEAM bagged the KALABASA Award for coming in last.]
[The long table which became the VENUE of the BOODLE-FIGHT (and the main feature of the DOC ANDY BADMINTON CUP) is shown here being daintily prepared by ASPAC Board Member Mikee Rubina as she places the variety of foodstuffs on top of the cooked rice and adjoining thereat.]
Yong BOODLE FIGHT ang siya nama’y naging TAMPOK,
Dinagdagan ko tuloy and TOKA kong MANOK9,
Siyempre yun ay ang maraming bawang na CHICKEN PORK ADOBO;
Ginawa ko na tuloy halos ay SAMPUNG KILO!
Mukha namang lahat ay nabusog at NASIYAHAN,
Nagpaluto na rin ako ng ISDANG
Ito na nga rin kasi ang syang BLOW-OUT KO,
Dahil panganay ko’y mag-sa-say “I DO”!
Hindi na ako pinayagang na mag-IMBITA PA,
Bilang ulirang ITAY, ako’y TUMALIMA!
Dahil daw sa bilang ng DANCE STUDIO students NILA,
Lahat ay naimbitahan halos sila’y nangakong PUPUNTA!
Pumalo ng TRES SIYENTOS ang syang naging ENROLLMENT11,
Ganun bilang din marahil ang darating sa EVENT…
At saka nama’y nakapunta na rin talaga KAYO,
Sa ANGELFIELDS Sanctuary noong pang MARSO DIES Y’OTSO12!
At ang sarap din naman ng KAIN nyo DOON,
Pati nga yong DESSERT masarap na NILAMON;
Kaya NEXT TIME na lang sa paligsahang BADMINTON,
Dadagdagan ko ang BOODLE-FIGHT ng HOPYA at MAMON!
[The Doc ANDY TAN BADMINTON CUP was great opportunity for BONDING too among the officers and staff of the ASPAC as depicted in this photo showing all the colors of the TOURNAMENT: YELLOW, BLUE, WHITE and RED. It was a great time for FAMILY BONDING too as Dra. Digna Gavina brought along her granddaughter, 3rd from right, making out a PRETTY-LOOK-AT ME pose.]
