Adobo, Commuting, and Expensive Gym Rates

I played my first game yesterday, and I ached a little bit that night but overall felt great. It was just a simple 2 on 2 with some village kids but I huffed and puffed and did fairly well, I think each team won a game.

That’s very impressive and I finally got to see why. It might not necessarily have the best of any given particular detail, but at the end it leaves you happy and that’s more than enough for me.
