Je vole avec mes rêves

We all have had a dream. To be someone we think we should be who we are. And in our own little way we daydream that we start to measure our fate and capability to sustain the much desired likeness we wanted to be. This is best illustrated with hand painted art work as professionally and emotionally done by a young artist who see things differently from those seasoned illusionist. As a child is always fascinated with the blue wide skies above him in this same breadth he curiously wanted to surge flying with his own little dream.  

Dreamers like a child …. chase it , weave it and always fly with it. – Paquito

Learnings from the Rio 2016 Olympics games

Winners knows no race or color and the medium used in determining the best out of the best are fair and square. This is the reason why the olympiada is considered as the highest form of competition ever played on earth. Watching the games bring me and the people of all ages a new understanding as to how the game was made, scored and officialized. Civilizations of all races, nationalities and social status just reminded people that an ordinary athletes can compete with the same mindset, to win the gold and etched their names in the history book of sports. That the world peace is achievable, no matter if there are 42 sports disciplines, 306 events, done in 37 venues and comprised of 205 countries, camaraderie is best exemplified by counting those who compete to complete the records for those whose excellent performance are justly rewarded. And that through numbers as a measure of greatness are jointly approved by participants who went there to experience and be recognised that their presence alone is a testament of support of peaceful world order.

Four times square we came prepared, Dovely at peace we are all one. – Paquito

Winning by 33 or 3 is a Still Win ! Rio 2016 Olympic Games

The 2016 Rio Olympic Games is on its twelfth day of the nineteen day schedule for all sports lined up and we are witnessing the history of sports in its highest forms where world records are smashed and replaced by the outstanding performances of super athletes. And the pre-opening scare of dreaded zika virus a thing of the past, spectators are embracing several selected games where local heroes Rafaela Silva, Gold medal for Women’s 57Kg Judo; Felipe Almeida Wu, Silver for 10m air Pistol Men’s Shooting and Rafael Silva, Mayra Aguiar Bronze medals for Judo Men 100kg & Women 78 kg respectively for a total of 4 medals for the 2016 Olympic host Brazil.

While some of the super athletes are living the dream to its realistic performances, fans and spectators of this samba country are seeing the opposite in one of the most popular sports in the Olympics since the entry of professional basketball players spearheaded by NBA millionaires player in the person of Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving, Paul George, De Andre Jordan, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyle Lowry, DeMar Derozan, Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes and Jimmy Butler whom are criticises for choosing stay in a cruise ship instead of the olympic athletes village that to some are missing the true olympic spirit. Pau Gasol of Spain Basketball team is heading to a wild ride to make it to the medal race the same with France who will be playing the USA tomorrow at 1:15am .  People expectations drew a lot of dynamics in terms of how they’ve viewed the past 4 games of the USA Dream Team where twice they’re threatened with games against Australia and Serbia. The USA basketball team more than 30+ points winning average advantage entering the 2016 Rio games are now flexing extra muscle to notch those important wins in the eliminations to ensure they’re on track to get that 15th Gold medal and maintain the tradition of basketball excellence and ranking around the globe.

The very big difference of the 2016 Rio Olympic basketball story as compared to 1992 Barcelona Olympics is the influx of European players mixing it up with the best of the NBA as seen in the two exciting games. Andrew Bogut, Matthew Dellavedova, Patty Mills of Australia and Bogdan Bogdanovic, Miroslav Raduljica, Nikola Jokic, Nemanja Nedovic of Serbia have been rubbing elbows with NBA’s best in the past seasons. China and Venezuela are the only teams with no current NBA  active players in the rosters but has previous engagement with several NBA teams respectively. This alone has dabbles the scientific approaches of team plays where European,Asian , Oceania and African players are more attuned.

And with the basketball nearing its vital quarterfinals and semifinals game, we have nothing to expect but a more thrilling and exciting match-ups of the powerhouse now battling equally for the Silver medal and an exclusive chance to play the bunch of NBA stars as winning by 33 or 3 is still a win for the USA Dream Team.

Either by a mile or an inch a win is still a win – Paquito

August 05, 2016, Maracana Rio de Janeiro Brazil, all eyes in the five continents of the world have focus their sight in the first South American country to ever host the event. Despite the intrigues, criticism and threats the organizing committee made it a spectacular event that captured the sights and heart of the world.

Traditional, cultural, modern achievements and future plans for the country were revealed and showcased as part of the opening ceremony, the ingress of the 206 participating countries with a total of 11,178 athletes  led by Greece and last to enter the stadium, Brazil. South Sudan and Kosovo will have its first participation in the most popular summer games of the world.

My heart weeps during the presentation of the first recipient of Olympic Laurel as they’ve shown the humble beginnings of a small boy from the underprivileged South  African place where most of the people especially the kids have the sports as the only road to their success in life. The flame was treated with sacredness combined with innovative invention of its rays simulation mechanically. Truly an amazing presentation of genuine Olympic Games opening ceremonies.

Let me borrow what has been mentioned during the welcome address of the olympians inside the Maracana Stadium, In the olympic world we welcome you as an enrichment into our unity and diversity, we compete and stay harmoniously in one place where everybody is treated with equality. – Paquito

Love love peace peace old women baking bread, Peace peace love love and a man in a hamster wheel, Love peace peace love Make it unforgettable, You will be the best and win the Eurovision Song Contest…. lifted from the song entitled Love Love Peace Peace.  Never can I recall that a contest as tough and as beautiful as this is telling the participants on what’s the best preparation and performance level to do in order to win the most coveted microphone trophy and earn the adulation of millions of fans across Europe and other side of the globe.

The contest hosts Måns Zelmerlöw & Petra Mede gave an outstanding exhilarating performance of a very simple but huge impact song of love and peace in the city of Stockholm Sweden. I was asking myself how could a simple song be forcefully affect the audience and its televiewers? No dull moment nor any thin line of gap of error with their A1+++ song and dance number. Its amazing show truly showcased the talent of the 42 participating representatives that won by a woman from Ukraine named Jamala who sang a song figuratively entitled 1944.

The whole programme went perfect right from the start to finish with the showcasing of stage design which were done with such genius and authentic display of a never before seen synchronization of the contestants and the people behind the engineering light marvels put on in every performance. But the real stand out  part of the event aside from the thrill and excitement the voting portion have made were the unthinkable and professional display of that intermission number with an ingredient of every music variety and stage acts accentuated by millions of programmable logic controlled lights that until today people have talking about the Eurovision 2016 Finals in every social media platform all the way here in Southeast Asia including my country the Philippines.

The Unforgettable  FIBAOQT Manila Experience

We were part of the historic basketball Olympic Qualifying Tournament and witnessed the A1+ game of TP09 in booking the last tix to Rio Olympics.

The recently concluded FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament held at the fabled Mall of Asia Arena has brought a lot of questions than answers for our own team Gilas Pilipinas. It was the largest by far as for basketball event ever held in the Philippine soil which were attended by current NBA superstars with Tristan Thompson , Tony Parker , Hamadi Ndiaye , Joel Anthony , Cory Joseph , Boris Diaw , Omer Asik and Euroleague MVP Nando De Colo who was also named the tournament MVP. The short but very important competition have the best ingredients for success our fellow countrymen are looking for in a prestigious basketball game where it is treated like religion in terms of popularity of the sports.

Though our bet Gilas Pilipinas were unable to notch a decent win, all loses ended in a single digit deficit against World power France and New Zealand who’ve played better team plays in both ends of the court. The thrill of getting into lead for a certain quarter somehow gave us the notion of getting to almost at their level of competitiveness. Andray Blatche played his best but come up short for a victory as his team mates were overpowered either by height and heft that will make our bunch of coaches to ponder the idea of getting taller and more agile players in the future.

Once more the tourney results and competitive level showed us the virtue of teamwork, the importance of cohesiveness, the beauty of familiarization of each member of a team that makes the execution of every play to run with a gentle and suave approach even in times of great pressures. The speed versus height and the outside shooting against clogged inside lanes balances the competition.

With my twin-brother Nando and youngest brother Chris who once played for FEU Basketball Team B. Both are still active competitively and bowed to extend their playing years after getting inspired by cat-quick moves of TP09

The strict adherence to games schedule made me consider to improve my time management in whatever situation I will be which were boldly felt inside the venue. No fancy or elaboration in the timely chronicles of each nation team movement to and from the Soffitel Hotel to the playing venue MOA Arena with high regard to being on-time attitude. The evident display of seriousness to win the lone pass to the ultimate basketball tournament which is the Olympics are traceable to their faces and body language.  Pride, Respect and History are the invisible part of the price at stake making these famous players played their heart out.

We were able to witnessed the different style of ball rotations, mind boggling passes making one player get open shot at the basket in the full view of the spectators drawing awe and screams of surprised crowds of the six nation inside the arena. And we were treated to several razzle dazzle moves by Jason Castro William the Gilas Pilipinas point guard and once again proves to us why he was the Asia’s Best Point Guard speeding fast his defender play every play and provided the needed points in coming up short in both losses.

The FIBA Officials led by President Patrick Bauman expressed his honest opinion of contentment with the way it was handled by our countrymen spearheaded by SBP Manny V. Pangilinan and SM Hans Sy and the PBA Officials . It was indeed world class.

Seeing our Philippine Flag side by side with the worlds best makes me prouder than ever.

Even after bowing out in two games of the Gilas Pilipinas, Filipino hoop fans with the mix of the visiting teams nationalities the arena were filled to rafters as the tickets sold on line was gone in a couple of hours after it was offered. This only shows the spectrum of basketball polarity with the US and Europe basketball remarkable following. The games popularity were felt by the visiting players as Tony Parker of French Basketball team said in an interview “we were like rockstar” indulging to selfies with his fans before boarding the teams designated bus going back to hotel.

Games souvenir from every sponsors were on display for sale ranging from one of the most expensive timepiece Tissot watch and TP09 official sponsor PEAK rubber shoes. Petron Tri Activ booth offers great prices if you can make 5 free throws in 30 seconds bringing you the pressure of making free throws within the time limit makes you experience how it is with FIBA in the international arena.

Chris Santiago of ANZ Bank calmly sank 5 consecutive freebthrows to win a Petron item shown here with Petron Tri Active ambassador.

We are all witness to the level of game the tournament made of and it is with a positive thought that we must embrace to make it in the Olympic Games the basic and proven approach to the game that no team can win a game without playing solid defense, orchestrated offense and fluidity in motion in running our plays from both ends of the hardcourt within the whole 40 minutes duration. This experience have taught us the virtue of dedication to practice, the commando attitude we need to firmly stay focus throughout the tournament and ultra ordinary experience for the team, the players and the coaching staffs including the media and the die hard fans who will always believe in the talent of our countrymen who’ve made sacrifices to their respective family’s and love ones in serving our flag.

This is just a beginning of the next big thing in the history of the Philippine basketball, a teaser for the 2019 World Cup and eventually by Gods grace and players infinite admiration to serve and share their talent once more to elevate our level in the halls of basketball greatness if not supremacy in the heart of Asia.

#LabanPilipinas will always be our word of motivation and earn the respect of the basketball word .

Thank you for all the sponsors for treating us to an unforgettable experience we have never imagine could happen in our life, thank you for bringing the best of the basketball world. Smart , Meralco , PLDT , Petron Tri Activ , TPB Philippines , Tissot , Peak , Molten , Japan Airline , ChampionWanda Group and Nanjing Beer.

Thank you FIBA for reading my blog. Paquito
