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 bringΒ  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.

    dito rin doc, maraming nanuod nung laban. hindi ako kasi hindi ako mahilig sa boxing pero i’m happy that he won :).

    re: personal stuff, you can always post a password protected entry. that way you can choose kung sino lang ang gusto mong makabasa, or none at all.

    take care!!!

    oo iskoo, lumipat ako ng wordpress pero hindi pa ako sure kung dito na talaga ako. so far, masaya naman ako dito. mas may control kasi ako sa mga posts ko. yun nga lang, gaya ng sabi ko kay smarie, chat box na lang, perfect na dito. but i guess i have no reason to complain kasi libre lang naman itong account ko. πŸ˜€

    ang galing mga talaga ni pacquiao. sana lang huwag na nya pasukin ang pulitika muna.

    hi Nikki, Pacquiao is really good! Grabe, we’re all yelling nung nanonood kami.

    Thank you for the comment. Today, I officially put a closure to my culinary school. I know my time will come, maybe di muna ngayon, but someday…

    I have faith πŸ™‚ I know everything will be fine.

    Thank you so much… πŸ˜€
