Victory for Pacquiao

Life here in the Philippines literally stopped for several hours today because everyone was glued to their television sets watching the Pacquiao-Morales fight. Our once busy street was suddenly quiet, not one vehicle passing by. Our friendly neighborhood store took the opportunity to earn extra money by subscribing to a pay-per-view showing. For only Php 100.00, viewers are assured of the best seats in the house and a chance to watch the fight live.

There was no doubt that Pacquiao is the better fighter. After seeing how Morales looked a few days before, I knew he wouldn’t last through the whole fight. He looked malnourished and tense. In the end, even Eric Morales admitted that he was “a beaten man”. This coming from a man who made fun of Manny’s singing, even calling him ugly. Our new hero though remained calm and relaxed refusing to bite Morales’ bait. This I suppose comes with getting psyched up for the fight.

Once again, Manny Pacquiao gave Filipinos a reason to smile today.

On a more personal note…

I have been busy for the last few weeks and I don’t think things will ease up for the coming weeks. I am helping my Papa with some of his paperworks and although I am often not sure of what I am doing, seeing that my father is pleased that I am (finally) getting more involved in his work is reward enough for me.

I have been writing a lot of personal stuff for the past weeks but everytime I sit down infront of the computer, I just couldn’t bring  myself to share them. I have discovered that although the blogging world is a virtual world, it is still inhabited by breathing, feeling and thinking people with different quirks and personalities. And that virtual world as it is, it is not very much different from the real world.

The posts are very touching and very timely. I hope you can visit them.

P.S.

Thanks ulit Doc Emer!

At First Sight

Thanks to my blogger friend Patrice who was thoughtful and kind enough to volunteer to look for the book and send it to me (arriving only the other day after more than a month in the mail), I am now the proud owner of Nicholas Sparks’ …

I have finished reading the book already. Nicholas Sparks once again squeezed my lacrimal ducts. It is a “relationship book”, the plot is happenning everyday to ordinary people’s lives. There were a couple of times when I thought I have reached to book’s climax, only to be suprised by another twist in the next chapter. Although I was a bit bored by the book in the beginning, the ending more than made up for it.

This book is worth a read. Another best seller from Nicholas Sparks! I can’t wait for his next book.

P.S.

Thanks Patrice! I hope I can repay the favor one of these days.
