Krasae U8 3rd place victory!

Our junior player from JA class Kan Tatsuta had played his first local thai tournament over the previous weekend. His quarter final battle ended close (4-5, 4-1, 8-10). Apparently a bit of confusion occurred when Kan thought he had won the first set when he got 4 games at 4-3.  It was a good learning experience and he was able to bounce back in the second and fought well in the super!


'Self-Identity Map'

Have you ever created a 'self-identity map'? It's a fun and great communication tool when meeting someone for the first time. This year at the allout beat 2015 camp, each coach has been asked to create their own self-identity map for such reason. There is no right or wrong way to create it. The first map is my own and the next few are other examples. 


Holiday Junior Challenge @ Kiarti Thanee Country Club

[Bangkok Confectionery] Would you like to go eat tasty desserts together? @ Serendib tea room

Every tuesday is the day to go eat desserts. Hello its Sakai, the man whose got a sweet tooth. I was introduced to one of the best if not the best eatery on sukhumvit soi 23 called Serendib tea room which is well known for their creme puffs and tart. If your a dessert lover would like to go together?

Introduced to me before, the creme puff and tart were fantastic, but I highly recommend the soft and delicate pancakes are recommend.
the pancakes were moist and glutinous

Desserts are not just the only thing that is tasty. The sri lanka curry with a slight pungent flavour once you eat it you would become addicted.
The Okra in the middle is a great condiment

Custom made chairs and tables are simple with good taste. Keeps the conversation flowing.
These seats are so comfortable

Round 1 Sweets Day Debut : 11/6 (TH) 13:00~
Lets talk about tennis, other pastry shops or whatever you'd like while eating delicious desserts. Will be waiting for those you can join!! Adult class and junior member parents are all welcome as long as you like eating sweets.

Please sign up at APF Academies Front Dest. Or just come up and talk to me.
