I never realized that I’ve been gone for one whole year already. It wasn’t as if I’ve chosen to go on a sabbatical. Of course not! I just had to settle some stuff. Now, I’m back with a new 17″ HP – Pavilion Bronze/Chrome laptop boasting a 6 GB RAM and a Nikon digital camera. So watch out — after the long silence comes the storm!
I immensely enjoyed reading your comments from Pipitblog.info. That website is no longer working, by the way. So I guess, we’ll just have to settle right here at good ol’ ever-so-dependable WordPress.
Anyways, I never knew Filipinos could be so touchy especially about Marian Rivera. Come on people! True, she is really pretty. Enroll her in a finishing school for Speech, Communication and Etiquette, then we can talk. I heard John Robert Powers in Makati can teach her a thing or two about how to act like a lady. Perhaps, they can extinguish all the traces of the “kanto girl” that she is. Good luck with that!
And then there’s the never-ending feud between the TV networks. It’s really pathetic, if you think about it. Die-hard fans of celebrities at each other’s throats just to protect their beloved idols, celebrities concocting controversies for their own publicity, network bosses declaring that their TV station is “the Number 1” in current ratings. 10 years ago, I might have argued that ABS-CBN Channel 2 is better than GMA Channel 7. But with the shallow, if not already dried-up pool of talents in Channel 2, the slow and painful deaths of the careers of Kristine Hermosa and Claudine Barretto, both former queens of primetime TV, and the shows that they keep on producing which seem to have been written by a bunch of 14-year-olds or retards even….I would have to settle with GMA 7 now. Sorry…but shows written by retards — could only be appreciated by their fellow retards!
Now what’s the latest? Right. Manny Pacquiao won again. This time Ricky Hatton was his designated punching bag. When will the rest of the world figure out that Manny has nothing to lose but everything to gain? He is just a nobody trying to make a name for himself, throwing himself amidst the world’s greatest boxers…look at him now…Manny Pacquiao, the world-renowned Filipino boxer! When he fights, all of the Philippines leave everything behind just to watch him…even the criminals take a time off from whatever it is that they are doing. And we are all proud to say that everytime Manny is on the ring, we have zero number of crimes committed. Then immediately after the fight, I guess everything goes back to the normal crime-infested streets.
Anyway, Ricky Hatton should have just brought a pillow with him if he was only going to sleep on the ring. Sad that, after he woke up, he heard a mouthful from his coach, Mayweather Sr. Watch him kick his dog while it’s still down (1:47)
Talk about being subtle! Show some class, man!
Well, on a final note, it has been said that Manny Pacquiao is running for president this coming 2010 elections.
