From the Bay to the PH: Stephen Curry s Manila Tour

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry made good on a promise he made to Filipinos three years ago -- to return to Manila.  Stephen’s game-breaking approach to basketball has scored him legions of adoring Filipino fans and followers from all around the globe who revel in every deep 3, every slippery drive to the rim, every sneaky steal.  His popularity has transcended borders, languages and cultures, and nowhere was that more evident than in Manila. Stephen’s first day began with a more than two hour on court workout with his trainer Brandon Payne. From shooting to speed and agility drills, Curry put in off season work as he continues to prepare for the upcoming NBA season. Steph Curry early practice in Manila ! — DYAN CASTILLEJO (@DYANCASTILLEJO) September 7, 2018 Curry wasted no time in tasting the local cuisine, and he couldn't have started with anything better, as he tried out some halo-halo.  Curry tries halo halo — DYAN CASTILLEJO (@DYANCASTILLEJO) September 7, 2018   A cold dessert that includes shaved ice, and various fruits such as shredded coconut, mangoes, jackfruit mixed with gelatin and milk. After touring a Jeepney, he traveled to Mall of Asia for the Under Armour Southeast Asia 3x3 Finals which saw he and his father, Dell Curry, on court for a shooting contest with other local fathers, sons and daughters. The competition was fierce but Dell and Stephen secured the win. From a press conference with journalists who came from all around Southeast Asia to cover the UA Brand House ribbon cutting to a skills competition shootout with his dad Dell, everywhere Stephen went in public, his Filipino fans followed in lockstep, fascinated by the presence of the two-time MVP and three-time World Champion. The fans weren’t the only ones awestruck - Stephen himself was blown away by the incredible landscape and cultural significance of the dense and bustling Manila.  Taking a quick tour of some city sights, Stephen then toured a Jeepney, the flamboyant WWII era truck that still can be found transporting residents throughout Manila. Curry capped off the day with a relaxing Filipino scalp massage at Titan and a visit to his shoe brand's main store. Before leaving the country, Curry dropped by the opening ceremony of UAAP season 81, where he led the legions of student-athletes in reciting the oath of sportsmanship. .@StephenCurry30 officially opens #UAAPSeason81! 🔥 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) September 8, 2018 After a busy three-day visit to Manila, much is left for the MVP's Asian Tour.
