Proud to be a Filipino



If in each of my fights, the FILIPINO people are united, then I will fight everyday." - Manny Pacquiao

His statement has just made me smile and has touched my heart, too.

Actually, when it would be Manny Pacquiao's fight over another equally good boxer, Filipino from different walks of life who live in different ways and means, and of all ages would surely take a break, pause for a while, and watch - stopping us from anything that we do. Fellowmen, quite true, right?

Either we would watch with family, loved ones, friends, workmates, and even with people we barely know, we would surely shout out loud, cheer, smile, jump and be somehow crazy over his performance - sharing thoughts about how good Manny is.

Personally, whenever I see people around with that kind of scenario, I suddenly felt happy, proud and grateful.

Indeed, this kind of event has made US one... united, overwhelmed and inspired! Thanks for such remarkably amazing instances... Cheers!

Nakakatuwa naman sa thru suntukan nagkakaisa and mga Pinoy.

Dahil kasi sa dami ng problema kaya pag may isang pinoy na magaling tulad ni Pacquaio parang idol ng karamihan kasi sya ang parang ehemplo natun David against Goliath syndrome.
But anyway I hope hindi matapon sa wala ang mga napanalunan nya.
