Sports Day!

So we did have a 7 day work week planned, but typhoon day and 2 days of sports day nicely knocked that down to only 4. Our job was simply to decipher their bizarre sports chants they came up with to scream over the PA all day long.

They had real starting pistols and cool events like shotput and hackey-sack
Here is an example of the kinds of things they expected me to put into english before they shouted it over the PA.

My favorite line to translate was one that went like, "Cindy! Did you know that you are crying? You are crying! But you must not cry, because you need to win! It is okay to cry."
