On The Ringside With The Nanny

It was shown on television that hours before Manny Pacquiao fought triumphantly against Joshua Clottey, the famous ring announcer Michael Buffer had walked into Manny's room to have his gloves signed.

Here's what Dipdip's Ate Virgie (the nanny slash relative) had to say about it.
"That Michael Buffer – he is not a boxer, right? I don't think he will have any use for those gloves."

Stephen and I can't help but laugh at her innocent comments before we had the chance to explain that the gloves were autographed for memorabilia's sake. :-)

Another Great Victory for Manny

Great victory! Manny Pacquiao has once again proved that size doesn't really matter. He has continued to make a lot of Filipinos happy by giving a great fight against boxing legend Oscar dela Hoya. I know Manny's a great fighter, no doubt about it, but I just didn't think he could make the Golden Boy quit after the eighth round. His strong jabs and punches almost had Oscar's one eye closed. Manny didn't even seem to have obtained even the slightest physical injury from the fight. It was a great game.

I was thinking if were a real gambler, I would've been counting my winnings and planning out a vacation with my husband by now. And probably do more shopping. :)

Rooting for Manny Pacquiao

Anticipation is almost over. The Dream Match between Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao and "The Golden Boy" Oscar Dela Hoya is set on December 6, 2008 (December 7 if you are in the Philippines) at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will surely be a holiday weekend for us here in the Philippines since majority (if not all) of us will be glued on tv to watch out for this fight. I am not a Kapuso but since The Dream Match will be aired on television this Sunday via the GMA Network, I have no other choice but to switch my channel just to see this fight. Don't worry ABS-CBN, I'm still a Kapamilya, though hehehe. More than being a Kapamilya, I'm also a Filipino. And I will be proud to see how Pacman jabs his way to winning this fight over the Golden Boy.

I am not the sporty type person, but everytime Manny has a fight, I transform into one. One of Manny's fights had a very special place in my heart. It was during his Mano-A-Mano fight with "Chololo" Larios that Stephen (now my husband) and I had been texting each other. He was also rooting for Manny but then he pretended to be on Larios' side just so we could make a bet that if Manny wins, I get to win a Toblerone chocolate. Now, wasn't that a perfectly good excuse for him to give me something without being shy about it? Wasn't boxing the sweetest thing? Now that we're married, I asked him if we're going to have another bet going for this Dream Match, he already dismissed the idea because he said if any of us wins, we get to share the chocolate, anyway. So we just bought ourselves something to eat and drink instead.

Happy watching, everyone! Win or lose, Manny's gonna get some money. Oh well, and so will Oscar.

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
