Still Pinoy’s Pride

I was blessed  watch Pacquiao’s last fight. It was indeed a heartbreaking loss most specially when you are there to see it “live”. My heart skipped a beat, I thought The Champ will not get up once again.  I was relieved when he finally did.

I rode with the “Team Pacquiao” from Las Vegas going back to Los Angeles. It was quite a convoy — Pacquiao and his wife, Jinky, rode the Pacquiao bus. The guys  were all so down but you can feel that they are trying to be strong for the person they call “Brod” — short for brother. Likewise, the Champ is staying strong for his family and friends.

Contrary to what others believe that he will retire, I don’t think the Champ will retire with that kind of loss. It is not a good way to retire. I heard they are cooking up the next fight this April. We need to watch out for this.

Whatever his critics say about him, let us not forget that he brought Pride and Glory to our country.

 

Rest in Peace, Dolphy!

I came home from a dinner last night and one of my maids announced that Dolphy is dead. “Hah??, that’s so sad,” as if Dolphy was a close friend. But yes, Rodolfo “Dolphy” Quizon, the veteran actor has been part of every Filipino’s lives. Who could ever forget the longest-running and most watched primetime sitcom in the Philippines during the 1970s and 1980s, John en Marsha? The sitcom depicted a typical Filipino family, which made Dolphy the Juan dela Cruz to may Pinoys.

In the 90′s Dolphy was once again part of the prime time viewing of Filipinos with Home Along Da Riles.The sitcom was a comedy show depicting the lives of a typical Filipino family living alongside the railroad tracks.

Dolphy’s passing is a big news in the Philippines, very fitting for a person who was widely regarded as the Philippines’ “King of Comedy” for his comedic talent embodied by his long roster of works on stage, radio, television and movies.

The whole country joins the Quizon family in mourning. The passing of a great person is a truly grievous moment for a country who enjoyed his laughter for quite a long time.

Lotto jackpotAs of this writing, the 6/55 Grand Lotto jackpot is almost P630M, more than half a billion pesos. The biggest stake in the history of lottery in the Phils. and I believe even in Asia. As the pot climbs up, people are lining up, braving the heat and the rain just to place their bets. Dreaming that the pot will give them the life they want. The lotto fever has hit both the rich and the poor,  even know politicians are taking chances, well it’s quite a big pot to be taken for granted.

Why is it so hard to get the right combination?

The odds of winning the Grand Lotto are one in over 28 million combinations or 28,989,675. Meaning, if you hit the jackpot, you must be really lucky. According to my son, “You have more chances of getting by a lighting than winning the lottery jackpot.” Talk about sarcasm. As for me, I guess I have more chances to lose weight than being a multi-millionaire. LOL!

This Saturday will be the 85th draw of the Grand Lotto 6/55. Will you be the lucky one?
