Ateneo Australs 2008

One word to describe this tournament. Memorable. 9 days in Philippine, 26 lecture hours sacrificed, Ateneo Australs is one tournament I'll not forget.

Performances wise, we did relatively well. If that team mate of mine did not force us to withdraw from the ESL (English as Second Language) category, we would have a good chance of winning it. We broke 2nd highest in that category and I would have been the 2nd best ESL speaker. Regardless of how 'insignificant' it seem to others, that`s one wasted trophy.

Though, I guess I should stop whining and try harder the next time to do even better than this tournament. Here`s some pictures to close this entry. (all the pictures here are taking from Praq's from Assumptions University. My pictures are still stuck in my phone.)

The after party without happy drinks.

Here`s to the a tournament with great adj, great debaters, great socials and great people. Cheers.

This space is my simple escape from the harsh reality. Expect lots of random rants and whining apart from the daily reporting of things going I`m going through.

Take nothing seriously, leave comments, or just a simple hi. The world is getting smaller by the day, why not know each other now. Have fun ya all.

Alex
