Sunday Stealing 034: The Sunset Meme

Before I begin with the Sunday Stealing Meme, I just would like to shout out a very happy birthday to my not-so-little-brother-anymore, Jeck! Once an avid skimboarder, he is now a football fanatic, playing for a local team in our city.

As football is the newest craze in the country where basketball is the national sport for generations, the Philippine Azkals versus the Mongolian Blue Wolves match earlier this week proved that it is fast becoming popular and simply set the nation on fire. Of course, my  brother must watch. As a birthday present for himself, he stated. And tens of thousands of Filipinos descend at Panaad Stadium in  Bacolod City. Bacolod is about 4-5 hours away from Roxas City (over an hour plane ride from the capital of Manila) and my brother, armed with  extra digicam batteries and sd memory cards he borrowed from my sister, traveled to Bacolod City with his teammates to see the game live. And they weren’t disappointed – the Azkals won and they had tons of pictures to show and great stories to tell when they returned home. Happy birthday, bro. What a great way to celebrate your birthday.

Okay, so on to this week’s meme.

Today we ripped off a blogger named Rol Hirst at the blog Sunset Over Slawit. We’ve ripped from him once before. He states that he doesn’t remember where he stole it. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft’s thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

The UPS I Heart Logistics jingle:

When it’s planes in the sky
For a chain of supply
That’s logistics.

When the parts for the line
Come precisely on time
That’s logistics.

A continuous link
That is always in sync
That’s logistics.

Carbon-footprint reduced
Bottom line gets a boost
That’s logistics.

With new ways to compete
There’d be cheers on Wall Street
That’s logistics.

When technology knows right
Where everything goes
That’s logistics.

Bells will ring, ring-a-ding
Ring-a-ding, ring-a-ding
That’s logistics.

There will be no more stress
Cause you’ve called U-P-S
That’s logistics.

  1. Happy Birthday to your brother! I can’t believe that Philippines has football game now.  Of course we love to play football but we have a different idea how to play football.

    1. Yup, puro kasi mga half-half ang halos lahat ng  Azkals e kaya artistahin! Of course, di rin naman sila short on skills when it comes to playing football. I know, si Ganda at Bonang ang numero uno fans 😀

  2. weeee! I forgot to post the meme ;{ next week na lang ako.
    im glad football is starting to be popular satin. we could use another sports aside from basketball and boxing. and besides, yung physique ng Pinoy is also more suited to football than basketball..

    1. Lui, maraming membets ng national team natin ang half-half — kaya maganda ang physique. Having said that, di rin palalamang ang mga 100% Pinoy Azkals when it comes to skills… imagine first goal ay from Chieffy – who’s from the Navy yata at 100% Pinoy.
      Sige, next week bibisitahin kita sa SS meme mo 😀
