Pacquiao vs Mayweather Jr. in 2012

Will undefeated American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. truly face Pacquiao on May 5, 2012? He might have twitted his challenge over Pacquiao, but will he compromised with him as to requirements and terms so that this much awaited fight will finally come true?  On Pacquiao's corner, he announced that talks are ongoing and he sent his adviser Michael Koncz to talk to Bob Arum about the superfight.

May this bout be pushed as many boxing fans await who will win between these 2 world's great boxers amidst previous controversies. Good luck Pacman! Wish you all the best to win in the superfight.

Hacienda Luisita for distribution

Another big issue that rose from the backyard of the Supreme Court is regarding the Hacienda Luisita. The ruling said that 4,915.75-hectare sugar estate must be distributed to 6,296 farmers. Now the big issue lies on the compensation of the sugar estate owners who are relatives of our president.

In this issue, I have nothing against our farmers but I believed that for the benefit that they will receive from the government just compensation must be given to land owners whether it is connected to a president or a private individual. Beneficiaries must try to comprehend that land owners also have the right to negotiate regarding “just compensation” from the government in giving out their lands to help our farmers. We must help each other in a way no one will benefit more from the other, or else that’s per se is unjust.

May this issue be resolved peacefully by the parties concerned without another shed of blood.

KC & Piolo called it quits

I just happened to see the interview of Tito Boy Abunda to one of my favorite stars KC Concepcionon on "The Buzz." It was all about KC, Piolo Pascual and their ever controversial relationship. My heart melted as I saw KC crying as she tried to answers the questions of Tito Boy. It’s really hard to speak matters of the heart in front of national TV and for that I admired her. Nobody knows the deep pain KC had but seeing those tears I know some girls in a relationship out there can relate how painful it is to be in that situation.

In a relationship, parties must understand that it’s a give and take turns in terms of everything: love, respect, understanding, support and forgiveness. It is hard that there’s only one among the two who always give and never receive anything, with that you will start questioning is it right? Does he or she sincerely love me? Is it still working for both of us? Or end it despite the pain?

KC, I know you are a strong and intelligent woman. There is nothing wrong in loving and fighting for the person we love but it entails pain. At some point we just really need to think if working out the relationship worth it or giving an end will do more good despite the pain. I pray that you find the true love you wished for and always remember that you are blessed with a loving family especially your mom. Ms. Sharon Cuneta. We all deserve to be happy with people we love, who loves us back.

KC confirms break-up with Piolo

22nd Philippine Advertising Congress

I saw the speeches of ABS-CBN Chairman & CEO Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez III, GMA Network Inc. owner Felipe “Henry” Gozon and TV5 Manuel “Manny” Pangilinan in the 22nd Philippine Advertising Congress in Camarines Sur. What I enjoyed most was the parts where the top executives were questioned by top anchors from another station.

As for me, I am a loyal Kapamilya before, now and forever. Good luck Sir Gabby!!! I wish you good health and success on your plans for ABS-CBN, local and global projects. God bless you always for doing business with a heart.

GMA's electoral sabotage news & updates

Last Friday, the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) filed electoral sabotage charges at the Pasay City regional trial court against former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for the alleged massive cheating in the Maguindanao polls in 2007. Also charged with the non-bailable offense are former Maguindanao Gov. Andal Ampatuan Sr., and former election supervisor Lintang Bedol.

The former president underwent the booking procedures inside her hospital today, Saturday, at around 2 p.m. wearing a hospital gown and a neck brace. It was facilitated by PNP Criminial Investigation and Detection Unit Senior Superintendent Joel Coronel.

I know it’s hard for the former president’s family, her friends and loyal allies in politics to see her on that very moment but the judicial process must takes its course. Charges are filed and as such will prevent her from travelling abroad to seek medical treatment.

Different issues on the said electoral sabotage had been in the news for months and many witnesses came out to divulge their participation. The trial for sure will take longer time to resolve in consideration also of the former president’s condition, aside from gathering enough evidences and witnesses on the alleged massive cheating. But I appreciate the gestures of President Noynoy Aquino to serve justice with a heart.

I never thought that President Aquino is politicking over the former president. It must be a must to every succeeding administration to prosecute any allegations towards former government to serve justice for the Filipino people. And to my fellow Filipinos, let us all be calm amidst these political issues.

Bizarre Creature: Aardvark

My son enjoys reading this “Weird Animals Dictionary,” an A to Z of the world’s most bizarre creatures, and he really appreciates the pictures of animals inside the book. The first bizarre animal I want to share with you is the AARDVARK. It is also known as the ant bear, and this unusual mammal is found in Central and southern Africa and has no close relatives. It has a pig-like snout and strong teeth in its jaws, but it hardly ever uses its teeth to bite or chew food. It prefers to gather up ants and termites with its long tongue and swallow them whole.

It has a maximum length of 1.6m (5 ¼ ft). The AARDVARK is one of the best diggers in the animal world. It uses its powerful claws to make burrows that are more than 10 meters (33 ft) in length.

Pacquiao amidst controversies of the Pacquiao-Marquez 3

The PACQUIAO-MARQUEZ 3 fever is still hot and getting hotter but I want to dedicate this article to the pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao.

In the recently concluded fight of the world’s 2 great boxers, controversy arises as to who really win the bout. Others said it was Pacquiao while others believed it was Marquez. Legally and officially it was Pacquiao according to the majority decision of the judges. There maybe people who were happy about the result especially the Pacquiao fans and those who placed their bets on him but the Marquez fans for sure were again frustrated with it. We were all entitled to our opinion and points of view but at the end of the day, whatever words had been said the much-awaited fight was won by Pacquiao.

I felt sad for Pacquiao. Yes it was true that his performance as seen by people around the world was not the performance his fans and expectators were expecting, but he said sorry for that. Was that not easy to understand for those people who got disappointed? Pacquiao is still human and had imperfections and shortcomings as such. He may get himself prepared for the fight but anything can happen during the fight. There were issues of failing to have his strength and conditioning exercise, foot cramps, personal issues, political parties, mafia, lifestyle, etc. Can we just help Pacquiao make realize his shortcomings as a boxer in a way he will understand it and uplift his morale. His performance may not be exemplary as compared to his previous fights but he gave what he can during the fight and he did not cheat to win. Grabbing the crown from the depending king is not easy. Marquez performance during the bout maybe considered up compared to Pacquiao but he failed to give and do more to ensure his winning.

Pacquiao was declared as the winner and retained his title. As a Filipino, we have to be proud of and celebrate amidst issues. We just not celebrate his winning because there is a knock-down or blood sprout from his opponent. The bout was a close fight and Pacquiao won, that’s I think the clear issue. But as to whether Pacquiao performed the way he performed on his previous fights is a different and separate issue.

If there is any good we can do for the pound-for-pound king is to pray for him that whatever happens in the recent bout will teach him a lesson and make him the best and wiser boxer.

Congratulations again Manny!!!

Arroyos WLO & ADO: News & Updates

I first heard the news over the radio (DZMM) about the TRO issued by the Supreme Court (SC) allowing former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and his husband Atty. Mike Arroyo to travel abroad and seek medical treatment abroad immediately. SC Spokesman Atty. Midas Marquez said the judges ruled with 8-5 votes stating that the ban was unconstitutional due to lack of charges on any crime and its consistency with the constitutional presumption of innocence.

It is really hard to comprehend national issues like this if you do not understand the laws. If you are an ordinary Filipino thinking of what the Arroyos have been accused of, you will probably be one of those opposing the travel. On the other hand, you will allow such travel for humanitarian reason or for not believing the charges. Of course for our politicians, it depends on their political affiliations and personal stand on the matter. On the part of our government, they will exhaust all possible means to stop the Arroyos for fear of escaping from possible charges and not serving justice to the Filipino people for crimes believed to have been committed by the Arroyos.

All I know and understand right now is that as a Filipino people we must stay calm amidst this issue and let the legislative and executive resolve the issue. Let us always work hard every day, be the best we can and continue praying for our country.

Pacquiao wins over Marquez with majority decision

Was the recently concluded PACQUIAO-MARQUEZ 3 bout victimized Juan Manuel Marquez of another robbery of what he claimed victory over Manny Pacquiao?

There is no doubt that the PACQUIAO-MARQUEZ 3 bout has been watched by people across the globe from beginning to end. Although Marquez fought a good fight, in every boxing bout the judges’ decisions are always final. Manny was declared as the winner but amidst again the controversy I believed Coach Freddie Roach was right in saying Marquez deserves another fight. Manny’s camp claimed he had foot cramps during the fight that started in the 4th round and continued till the end of the fight. As I watched the bout, I guess that explains the incidents where Manny was caught flatfooted and really affected his performance. On the other hand, CompuBox program that counts and categorizes punches in boxing matches issued official fight statistics showing that Pacquiao threw and landed more punches against Marquez.

Why another 4th installment? The 4th one will be the most exciting match to watch and will give burning pressure to the 2 fighters to push themselves to the limit for a knock-down. To Marquez, too early to quit and Pacquiao, you made Filipinos proud again. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Pacquiao-Marquez 3

Tomorrow is the much-awaited Pacquiao-Marquez third bout. Who will win the fight? Pacquiao needs to win the fight to put an end as what Marquez and his camp are claiming that they both win the 1st and 2nd bouts. It will be an exciting fight because both boxers need to prove who is who amidst controversies.

On the other issue, Las Vegas must be thankful to Manny Pacquiao for helping them lift their economy on his every fight in Vegas. People are jam-packed to watch the fight of Manny Pacquiao because he gives his all as a fighter, not only for his family and fans but for his country.

Congratulations in advance Manny!!!

Featured Recipe: Garlic Shrimp Lemon Recipe

My kids love pasta dishes. I may not be perfect cooking different pasta dishes but every time I made one they loved it. Why not? I cooked from the heart, not just simply cooking. That is why I thank the internet so much for giving me many ideas about pasta dishes I can cook for my kiddos.


8 oz Fettuccine Noodles, uncooked
⅓ cup Butter
2 Medium Onions, thinly sliced
4 cloves Garlic, finely minced
2 tsp Flour
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Pepper
½ cup Half cream & Half milk
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tsp Lemon Zest
½ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 lb Large Shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Parsley


Prepare fettuccine according to package directions, drain and keep warm. Prepare shrimp. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium high and saute onion and garlic for 7-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and stir in flour, salt and pepper until flour just begins to color. Gradually stir in half and half, reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add lemon juice, zest and shrimp and cook for 3 more minutes just until shrimp turns pink. Place warm pasta in a large, warmed serving bowl, toss with sauce mixture and Parmesan cheese.

Patrol 117 in the Philippines

What is PATROL 117 in the Philippines? It is the local version of the popular rescue hotline 911 in the United States. Patrol 117 is the nationwide emergency hotline number in the Philippines wherein people can just direct dial 117 from any cell phone or landline, even from provinces. The emergency dispatcher will immediately connect to the Philippine National Police, Bureau of Fire Protection or the Red Cross depending on the caller’s needs.

In the recent RAMGEN BAUTISTA murder incident, a friend of the victims in the name of WENDELL CUNANAN called Patrol 117 after receiving a text from JANELLE MANAHAN (victim’s girlfriend) stating the incident and that they need police assistance and an ambulance so that they will be taken to the hospital. The emergency dispatcher coordinated the call to Parañaque police and barangay officials of BF Homes, Parañaque.

The saddest part of it is that there are people who are making prank calls to Patrol 117. Let us understand the importance of this hotline and give way to people’s call who really in need of assistance. By not doing so you will be helping them save more lives and attends to the incident immediately.

DOJ rejected PGMA's ADO

A photo shows former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo wearing a halo vest as part of her recuperation from surgery. The photo is part of the petition submitted by Arroyo's lawyers to the Supreme Court to allow her to travel out of the country to seek medical attention. BUT the Department of Justice (DOJ) rejected the former president’s request for an allow departure order (ADO) to seek treatment abroad. According to Elena Bautista-Horn, spokesperson of GMA, under the Section 6 of the Constitution, an ADO can only be rejected if it involves national security, public safety or public health.

Doctors of the former president at St. Luke’s Medical Center have said that a tetracycline bone biopsy is unavailable in the country and that’s the reason why the former president needs to seek medical treatment abroad. Former President Arroyo was diagnosed with cervical spondylosis and hypoparathyroidism.

Praybeyt Benjamin beats No Other Woman???

Can Praybeyt Benjamin become the first Filipino movie to hit the P300 million mark?

“Praybeyt Benjamin” is set to break the box-office record of “No Other Woman” by virtue of its P200 million gross on its first 8 days of screening! According to Star Cinema, Vice Ganda‘s “Praybeyt Benjamin” has raked in P200-million in ticket sales from its opening day last October 26 up to November 2, 2011 (8 days).

Given that box-office gross in just 8 days, the movie is expected to surpass the earnings received by another Star Cinema-Viva Films co-production–”No Other Woman”– which registered the record-breaking P267.1 million ticket sales in 4 weeks.

Gwendolyn Ruais @ Miss World 2011

Gwendolyn Ruais, the first Miss World Philippines (first contestant not under Bb. Pilipinas), took first runner-up honors in Miss World 2011 on Sunday, November 6, (Monday morning in Manila) at the Earls Court Two in London. She has duplicated Evangeline Pascual‘s 1st runner up feat in Miss World 1973 in London, still the best placement of a Pinay beauty in the Miss World pageant. The crown remains elusive to a Filipina as Miss World is still the only title among grand slam beauty pageants that hasn’t won by the Philippines.

Over the weekend, Gwendolyn made it to the pageant’s three fast track events – Top 20 in Beach Beauty, Top 20 in Top Model and Top 10 in Beauty with a Purpose. Her inclusion in the said preliminaries earned for Gwendolyn enough points to enter the Top 30 quarterfinalists.

The Top 30 was trimmed down into 15 semi-finalists with Miss Puerto Rico at the top of the leaderboard. From the 15 semi-finalists, the panel of judges picked the Top 7 namely Miss England, Miss Korea, Miss Philippines, Miss Puerto Rico, Miss Scotland, Miss South Africa and Miss Venezuela.

Miss Venezuela was declared the winner while our very own Gwendolyn Ruais settled for first runner-up placement. Miss Puerto Rico, Amanda Perez, came third in the contest. Gwendolyn was also named a Continental Queen of Beauty for the Asia Pacific.
