Bowling skillz? I don't haz it.

23 March 2014

My friends are continuously and consistently helping me find things I suck at because apparently it's not enough that I got my ass kicked in both badminton and boxing. Last night, it was bowling. My sister even went with us!

Ralph, Chum, my sister Kyla, me, Sheila
We went to StarJ, a seven-story building in Malabon that used to be a mid-scale mall. My friends from high school and I used to go there a lot to buy materials for school projects and more things to clutter our rooms with, heh. I don't know what happened, but aside from the supermarket on the ground floor and the entertainment center on the fourth level (where the billiard hall, bowling alley, and KTV place are located), the building has mostly become a ghost town. I hope they can restore it because it's a shame to let all that space just go to waste.

Anywaaay, back to the game. It wasn't actually my first time to go bowling. 


My uncle Carl is a bowling champ you see, and he used to take the whole family to his games a lot when I was a kid. I am familiar with the concept of "throwing" the ball and hoping it takes down all pins with it, but as with any other type of sporty activity, I had a hard time following the rules and scoring scheme at first.There was also this innate fear that I look like a wobbly penguin as I lack the grace sporty people naturally have.

Yup, my sister is 14 but she's already taller than me. :(
Nevertheless, it didn't stop me from having a great time. Bowling is really fun, whether you're a pro at it or a pro at being a noob. I really enjoyed it! Well, I guess it all just depends on who you're with.


It's a good thing I was with some of my favorite friends. Thanks, guys! What are we going to try next time? Please know that I won't take no for an answer the next time I ask you to join me at yoga practice, Ralph!

Have a great week ahead, everyone!
