‘Pabasa’ and ‘prusisyon’: Petron’s Santos not slowing down this Holy weekBy Celest R. Flores
MANILA, Philippines — Amid the grueling grind in the 2013 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, a quick respite is anything but welcome for the players.
But for Petron Blaze’s Arwind Santos, the three-day break this Holy Week is an important “time for the Lord.”
The lanky forward shared his plans for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday to INQUIRER.net on Wednesday night after Petron’s 84-92 setback to Alaska.
“Panata namin na may pabasa kami sa Nueva Ecija,” said Santos, who drove to Cabiao, Nueva Ecija after their game at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
“Ganun talaga panata sa side namin. [Karamihan sa kamag-anak ko] sa father’s side halos dun sa [Nueva Ecija] nakatira. So pupunta ako sa mga tita ko,” added Santos.
It’s just going to be a day trip up North for Santos as he, and his family, are set to join a procession in Pasig City on Friday.
“Balikan lang kasi dito lang ako sa Pasig sa Friday, may prusisyon kami,” he said.
But Santos has no plans of slowing down on his workout this Holy Week, especially with Petron hitting a few snag midway the conference.
“Mag-papakundisyon parin, di pwede mawala yun. Di na kami pwede matalo,” said Santos. “Importanteng alagaan mo parin sarili mo
“Itong 3 day-break, dito lalabas yung pagiging professional. Di ibig sabihin na break, magpapakasarap ka, kakain ka ng madami. Para sakin hindi ganun,” Santos said.
