Posted:So I just got back from doing volunteer work in the Philippines and I thought I'd share a few photos with you guys.



We were planning to visit an Orphanage while we were there, so before I went I thought I'd go down the 100yen shop and buy a few pairs of socks and tennis balls and teach them how to Poi.



I wasn't sure how they'd take it but they really loved it and a few kids took to it like a duck to water.



So I thought I'd share a couple of photos with everyone here as a thanks for helping me remain a Poi addict long enough to get the chance to pass it on.

Never hold your farts in! They travel up your spine, go into your brain and that's where shitty idea's come from.

Posted:Thanks for the support guys. Hopefully I can go back there some day to see how they're getting on.

The kids were fantastic and so full of life. They'd definitely make great poiers. biggrin

They even sung us a song to thank us. Check it out:
