Philippines to Compete in Taipei,Taiwan on June 6-10

May 30, 2008 12:01am CST
This is shameless publicity people ^_^ My teamates and i, of course:), will be representing the Philippines in the International Taipei Dragonboat Festival on June 6 - 10 2008. This was the same competition where we Filipinos won Gold last year for the 300m Women's Division and Bronze for the 300m Mixed Crew. With hopes that we'll be able to defend the title and also bag the gold for the Men's team, we'll be flying to Taipei on June 5. I will be the official Flag Bearer of the country and also the Flag catcher and Paddler :D ...*which also means no mylot for a week LOL...we need your prayers kababayan!!! :D
