While in Sydney, planning our trip to Melbourne, I specifically requested my Pinoy-Aussie friends that I wish to see and visit the arena where the Australian Open is annually being held. True enough on our second day in Melbourne, my dear friends granted my wish by catching a train and made a short walk along Melbourne Park. We specifically went to the Rod Laver Arena, the center court of the recently held Australian Open.
We had the opportunity to enter and feel where the superstar players traverse leading to the court in which the walls are lined with pictures of past winners. I was ecstatic trying to control my happy feelings. The excitement and thrill was more than the festive Jollibee kiddie party.
While inside the lustrous hallway, I severely focused my senses to verify the wall vibrations if there still subsists the reverberating sound of audience cheer from this year’s men’s finals between Murray and Djokovic.
Of course, me and my friends did not miss the chance to take souvenir photo shoots of this once in a lifetime experience. A gazillion thanks to my Pinoy-Aussie friend Jerico for the great photos… This is one breathtaking realization on my bucket list.
Huli man daw at magaling, huli pa din… Oberwelming ang piling!
