A water balloon fight was held on July 27 to highlight Josette's 17th birthday. The participants were ages 4 to 54. Two teams were formed by following the game mechanics of 20 years old and below: team A, then 20 years old and above: team B. By right, Yum should not have been included for she's 20 which makes her right smack in the middle of no team. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law must have misunderstood the grouping for they started to aim shots at whoever they fancied. Here is a picture of the participants in their jumping glory.




Many are clamoring for a rematch for in the hullaballoo of the event, no team was declared winner. It has been agreed upon by the board of organizers that a rematch will be held this coming Sunday, August 3. Same time. Same place. To avoid scenes like these..

an even older goat smashing a kid....



or biggies like these competing with...


... these kiddies...



The board has decided to form two teams by the scientific method of jack en poy. Here I present the partnering in jack en poy. Please do not complain for it took the board one big packet of spicy Boy Bawang and a 500 ml. Coke light to finish the partnering. Here is the list.

Sonboy and Sheena
Justin and Herschel
Myles and Icka
Kookee and Janina
Yum and Sasha
Josette and Megan
Jerrold and Jamielle
Jiselle and Ysabelle
Jeshua and Jester
Ethan and Erin
Pixie and Minnie
Lena and Nenith
TJ and Twinkle

If you are not in the list and you feel you want to join this madness, please feel free to apply to any one on the list. Make sure that you have your partner for the highly technical method of jack en poy to determine the team you'll be in. To all participants, make sure you all wear white shirts. This time we will color the water to be put in the balloons - red and blue food coloring. The blue team will wear blue ribbons and use the blue-colored-water-filled balloons.The red team will wear red ribbons and use the red-colored-water-filled balloons. The winner would obviously be the dominant color- in terms of wet shirts et all - by the end of the game. I would just like to remind you that the pond water is not to be used. The picture below shows the panic caused by the pond water. Take note of the water splash at the upper right hand corner of the picture.

I'll see you Sunday.

  7. Ok let me just make a suggestment...este suggestion pala....since your August theme is Olympics...isn't it just fitting to maybe get the Olympic people to consider having Balloon Fight as one of the games? Aha! Then....the old goats and the young goats can be the first participants...ha!

    Hello hello...I was here yesterday kaso I wasn't able to leave a comment.

    Isang linggo na naman ang bubunuin natin...I hope it will be one fulfilling week....kumusta na ang lotto dyan?
