Quezon - my paradise...ehem...thanks glenny for this pic.
about 2 saturdays ago, my friend and teammate, glenn, introduced our team to his sport - airsoft
. it is quite the same as paintball, only, we use pellet guns which look and weigh like real guns, i swear! we've been hearing him rave and rant about this passion of his the past 7 months or so, that we just had to try it out for our teambuilding activity (we've been trying to shy away from the usual dinner and movie teambuilding thing since we've been doing that forever).
it was a sport of endurance and stealth and strategy, and we actually feared at first that not everybody would enjoy it - being a physical game and all. at the end of a grueling four-hour game (with water breaks in between syempre), we were all complaining about how hot it was (because we had to put on jackets to protect our arms aside from the vest and the mask we had to wear), we were all sweaty and dirty and our pants and shoes were wet from running in the water puddles, our bodies were aching and we had bruises on our knees and arms, necks even, (man, even if we were wearing jeans, does it hurt if you get shot by a person standing just a few meters away!). but i was surprised that despite all the complaints, everybody looked like they had the time of their lives (yes, manager and team lead included). and come monday morning, we were all raving about it at work like lunatics. haha!
i picked out some of the pics taken that day (kakatamad upload so it took me awhile to blog about this airsoft thing. haha.)
that's my team on the right - the "winners" who ironically won only once throughout the game. hehe. (so? we're better at bato, bato pik!). team on the right are the "losers".
left pic shows how we looked before the game --- we looked so fresh...and dry. haha. and JT looks so emote on the right pic! wala naman magazine yung baril nya. haha! :)
i love these really cool team shots!
that's glenn, me and rhea in action on the left pic. and of course, may favorite pic of the real winners after capturing the flag. :)
i had sooo much fun that day. but i don't think my powers can endure playing airsoft every week
just like glenn does. my whole body refused to move the following day! haha!
