PACQUIAOwin Natin Ang Parangal!

Filed under: Features — admin at 10:14 pm on Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Pacquiaowin nating Pilipino ang palakpak ng mundo.

We deserve it. Manny Pacquiao is a Filipino, and the whole world claps for  him. Thanks to Pacquiao, our national pride has been raised another notch. Pang-Guinness Book of world records na siya!

Manny is the only man in the whole world that has won in seven different weight divisions ( flyweight, super-bantamweight, featherweight, super-featherweight, lightweight,  junior welterweight, and welterweight) in the history of boxing.

According to 79-year old Top Rank  promoter  Bob Arun, “I am now on record to say Manny Pacquiao is the best boxer I have ever seen and that includes Muhammad Ali, Sugar Rey Leonard, or Marvin Hagler. I have never seen anyone like him. “

Even the bandits in Mindanao had decided to free Irish Columban priest Michael Sinnot so that they could go down the mountains to watch the fight of Pacquiao. Hindi ba nakakalokah? Nang tinanong kung sino ang dapat niyang pasalamatan sa kanyang paglaya, ang sagot ni padre, “Manny Pacquiao.”

After  one month in captivity, sleeping under a tarpaulin-covered tent, and walking the woods every day for six hours, Fr. Sinnot—who has a two million dollar ransom on his head—was freed just like that. His captors wanted to watch the Pacquiao fight.

I watched the fight via pay-per-view (no commercials) with my family and my best  friend Ina Raymundo. We were holding hands, screeching and screaming like were watching a horror movie. After every round, I kept on saying, “I need a commercial break to recover.”

In fairness to Miguel Cotto, he put up a good fight. After the first round when Miguel Cotto threw in double left jabs that made Pacquiao a little off balance, I prayed to God for Manny to win the game. Never akong nagdasal for Manny kasi alam kong kayang-kaya niyang manalo.

Si Ricky Hatton nga, pang-two rounds lang kay Pacquiao. Sabi ko sa sarili ko, “Naku baka mga manalo si Cotto. Nag-HEAD AND SHOULDERS lang kasi si Pacquiao. E, pang dandruff lang yun. Di ba niya alam na Cotto (kuto) and kalaban niya? “

But Manny was not only  strong. He was smart. He made Cotto feel too confident by doing the rope-the-dope technique. Nagtataka ako bakit pumapayag si Manny magpa-corner sa ringside, sumandal sa ring ropes at magpasuntok kay Cotto. I didn’t know it was a technique  (Muhammad Ali is known for this technique) so that Cotto will forget his powerful jarring left jab and concentrate on moving in to unload short-range bombs.

It was risky for Pacquiao but smart. Just when Cotto was feeling more comfortable unloading power shots to Pacquiao on a close range in round four, Pacquiao gave him a vicious left hook in his jaw that made Cotto drop to his knees.

After Cotto endured 336 punches from Manny, the referee Kenny Bayless decided to halt the fight seeing Cotto full of blood and being punched consecutively by our idol.

Seeing this billboard in Union Square, San Francisco is overwhelming and heart-stopping. Dati-rati, taga-linis lang tayong Pilipino ng billboards sa Amerika. Ngayon, Pilipino na ang nasa billboard!


Time Magazine
has only featured a few Filipinos on their cover—President Ferdinand Marcos, President Cory Aquino, and now, Manny Pacquiao. Truly you have to be SOMEONE in your TIME and make a difference before you can be a cover of Time magazine.


What good news Manny Pacquiao brought to a grieving nation. After Ondoy, Pepeng, and news about politicians being tried on corrupting and malversing the funds of the Filipinos, we deserve to hear good news. MABUHAY KA, PACQUIAO! SALAMAT!

Sana in all aspect maging role model si manny. Not only a good boxer and a good person to others but most especially a good husband to his wife. Money can’t buy true happiness and peace of mind. Aanhin mo ang napakaraming kayamanan kung may tao ka namang natatapakan lalo pa’t ito ang iyong asawa. Sometimes you think that your winnings that brought you so much money is a blessing from God, but it can be a blessing in disguise, kung dahil sa marami mong pera ay nagkakasala ka na. See how satan works? Sana wag siyang magpa-deceive. Mas masarap yung marami ka ng pera, masaya pa ang buong pamilya mo.

Totoo ba ‘yung chismis sa kanila ni Krista Ranillo? Siya ba ‘yung mystery girl sa koche ni Manny palabas ng Jimmey Kimbel Live?

Hi G,

I like reading stuff that has substance.Sad to say I am already so annoyed with comments about his womanizing I am ready to explode.Why can’t we just leave him alone and enjoy the pride he has done after all it was him who stood there and be punched, granted he earns from it but we Filipinos say Kababayan ko yan! Why do we judge as if we are the authority on everything. Lets just be happy he won and he didn’t end up like Z Gorres. To think people think of ill of another person. We are suppose to be christians let the judging be done by God.

Hi Ms. G,

It was refreshing reading your blog I can somehow relate,am also schooled in all girl school and when I changed school I was culturally shock lol, bakit nga ba nkikialam ang mga tao where went to school hindi n lng hayaan o kaya magbigay din cla ng the same dedication s studies nila to reach what you have accomplished. I like the honesty of your blog and it is informative. Go Ms. G.From now on pagmakita kita I would say hello.Grabe n ito I read your blog from the start April 2008 at in fairness I felt I knew n lol.dami similarities like school at miscarriage, ako I have joined a group pr makamove on talaga atang gnun it is hard.Again KUDOS and wishing you the best in life.
