The ILH families (Filipino families from Intel) got together for a full day of sports fun at the Saigon South International School. Some two years ago, we were sort of shipped to Ho Chi Minh City for work. And it has been a terrific experience so far.
The sportsfest was not formally sponsored and so I was truly amazed at the huge effort by the families in putting their time to make the fest a success.
Special thanks go to the organizers, who by the end of the day were parched and tired from herding some 60 participants from one game to the other. Lam tot lam Thines and Arlene!
Unfortunately though, I didn’t get to take photos of all the games because I was also a participant. We had 4 teams, Red, Blue, Yellow, and Green. I was with the Blue Team and it didn’t quite work out for us in the points department, but we did had a lot of laughs! So overall, we feel like winners too!
Then of course, we took a break! Lunch time Filipino-style. We brought bopis, biko, laing, lumpiang shanghai, puto bumbong, menudo, and pizza! 😛 There were so much food going around!
and the adults also took part in the hula hoop race, Chinese garter,
The last game was patintero.
Kudos to the ILH Sportsfest organizers and to all the participants! We all rocked!
Leaving you with this cool video of the sportsfest made by the Luciapao family!
