Bowling at SM has never been this funky

I used to frequent SM Megamall to play bowling with friends and my wife. It was not so much about our passion for the sport at first but more on the deprivation of not being able to experience such while growing up in the countryside.I eventually became fascinated with the game. And like any other sport, it requires dedication and patience. Nothing compare to the sheer pleasure of making a strike. But my last time to play was months ago. Got a bit busy these days that bowling has become something of a lesser priority. Until something refreshing came along.

Ever heard of funky bowling? nah, me neither. Not till a group of bloggers were invited by the SM Mall of Asia Bowling center to experience the new and more fun style of bowling---funky bowling. I was lucky to be one of those invited last Saturday for an evening of  fun, food and drinks.


so what is funky bowling?

In this game, bowlers will be challenged to play differently as they will be given cards that would dictate how they are to bowl for each frame. Here are the examples.

frame 1: Have someone stand in front of you, legs apart. roll the ball through their legs.
frame 2: wear a blindfold and use a ramp to bowl.
frame 3: bowl backwards between your legs
frame 4: bowl while on your knees
frame 5: bowl between your legs

frame 6: spin in circles 5 times and then bowl immediately
frame 7: sit Indian style and roll the ball.
frame 8: sit on the floor and bowl by pushing the ball with your feet
frame 9: lie down and bowl
frame 10: moonwalk in slow motion then bowl immediately

frame # 9

team G--my team mates,John, Abet and Florencio

Around 30 bloggers all in all were present that day. We were team G. --- Abet, John , Florencio and me. I was the 4th player in the group and I did frame #'s 4 and 8. It was a shame I didn't hit any pin. frame # 8 was particularly difficult for me. But it was fun fun fun. We were screaming and laughing our hearts out.
