Many of you have asked about Angeles City (Sin City); I must admit when I was younger I visited Angeles; but I want to keep this website clean so I will not post pictures of BarGirls and so on. If you really want to learn about Angeles you can click on the sites below. Harry has been in Angeles for many years and has pages of information.
Goodluck and be safe…. Bradleym
I recently had a chance to meet Manny PacMan Pacquiao at the Imperial Palace Resort and Spa in Cebu Philippines. I was very impressed with him; even though many people where surrounding him he took the time to take pictures with anyone who approached him; I had stumbled over the below article that I think explains why he is so popular. Everyone loves the underdog; I hope the fame and fortune does not swallow him up like so many popular figures.
Below is an article from L.A. Weekly
“The floor of his house was made of dirt. The walls were thatched. His entire family of seven squatted in the house, small as a prison cell, sleeping on cardboard boxes…
Pacquiao dropped out of elementary school to sell doughnuts, ice water and fish he caught from the sea. One day in 1990, watching television, he saw the invincible Mike Tyson fall to James “Buster” Douglas, and fell in love with boxing. The underdog can win, he learned. He punched a rubber flip-flop tied around the trunk of a palm tree. He imagined himself a champion. He was 11 years old.
At 14, he ran away from home, from sleepy General Santos City in the lawless southern tip of the Philippines, a rusty, run-down town lost in time. He stowed away on a ship bound for the megacity Manila. Before boxing training in the afternoon, he welded steel at a factory, then used his weekly pay to buy flowers, which he would sell on the streets for twice the price. At 16, he turned pro, a gangly 106 pounds. He fought like a mad dog, wild and out of control.”
Manny was Born December 17, 1978 as Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao; he has won EIGHT division world championships; having won six world titles. Manny has gone far since the flower selling days, he has recorded music dabbled in acting and has become a politician; May 2010 Manny was elected to the House of Representatives in the 15th Congress of the Philippines, representing Sarangani province.
I’m sure the climax of his career would be to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. who just defeated Miguel Catto in a decisive manner. Manny’s last fight was not as easy and some say that the opponent actually should have won; I watched that fight live and you could see the uncertainty in every Filipino’s face. Everyone in the Philippines I have talked to loves Manny and I personally have grown to respect and enjoy the banter.
Cebu is a great place and it was very nice to have met one of the best fighters in history.
Do something nice today for someone without asking anything in return.
This was one of my most favourite posts; I’m reposting this for those who may not have got a chance to see it. Bradleym
January 10th I visited a sick co-worker at his home town of Cagayan De Oro; I had no idea of the devastation that the people of Cagayan had experienced on December 17th 2011; a typhoon created a flash flood around 7pm, this was the worst flooding in Mindanao in the last 25 years, killing at least 1002 people with more still missing, at least 11 barangays out of Iligan City’s 44 barangays and 23 out of Cagayan de Oro’s 80 barangays were under water. Thousands of residents were sent to their roofs shortly after midnight as floodwaters rose rapidly. My drive even 37 days after the devastation shows how bad the flood really was; I passed an outside basketball court that still housed a few hundred people who had no where to go. Our driver whose house was lost to the flood said that the waters had reached the height of A fence which was around 6 feet within 5 minutes. Please comment our send me an email if you have anything you would like me to check out in Cebu to email@example.com
I have recently deleted all comments; since I’m new at this I had not controlled the comments. ALLOT of spam was generated; I apologize for the very kind people who left great comments and hope you will try again. I will screen all comments first to make sure they are genuine. Thank you so much and God Bless.
OK so it’s been awhile… I apologize. A lot has been going on in my life for the past 2 months. I have been given a chance to work at a Resort on the Island of Saipan and will be leaving Cebu May 31st. I have truly enjoyed Cebu and still have many videos to post when I get the time. I’d imagine I can change the title and post under STUCK IN SAIPAN soon. I will be working on a new post and it should be out in the next few days. I recently was able to meet Manny the PAC man and will post a video about that meeting. Thank you all for your continued support and it was nice to read that some of you missed my post. These kind comments actually prompted me to keep posting. I will be posting a new post by the May 9th; and by the way today is my Birthday……. Working as usual.. Do something kind for someone today….
