No complaints from Gilas' Cruz, despite celebrating birthday mid-flight

KUALA LUMPUR — Carl Bryan Cruz's 26th birthday was one to remember.

The Alaska forward barely had time to gather his bearings following Gilas Pilipinas' last game of the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup in Beirut, Lebanon, when he had to fly straight to Kuala Lumpur to join the national team for the Southeast Asian Games.

The journey took some 13 hours, as Cruz flew from Beirut to Doha, Qatar, to the Malaysian capital.

"Birthday ko kahapon," a grinning Cruz said Tuesday, after playing 16 minutes in Gilas' 129-34 rout of Myanmar. "Nasa eroplano ako."

Make no mistake, however: the former Far Eastern University stalwart has no complaints spending most of his special day in the air. For one, the team did surprise him and celebrated with him upon his arrival here on Monday afternoon.
