45 members and guests of UPAA-MB, Inc. attended the event and comprised the 12 competing teams: Teams A-F and Teams 1-6.
“We enjoyed curling. It was our first time to play and it was good and exciting. We competed with different teams,” Kristine David said.
“My favorite part was sweeping. I have a vacuum cleaner at home and I don’t sweep a lot. I miss sweeping with a broom just like in the Philippines when I clean the floor,” Jeffrey David added.
