Vinegar, with a punch

Spotted on my mom's small convenience store: Yep, you guessed it right. That's the world's best pound-for-pound king hamming it up on the plastic packaging of a local Vinegar brand. When I said "hamming it up" -- you have to look at his absurdly annoying face as presented on a cheap packaging of plain local …

Adorably cute, funny, amazing…and just plain weird

...I am talking about YouTube videos. Well, even if I am currently buried neck-deep with work and I hardly see friends nowadays, I've resorted to viewing amazing videos on YouTube to blow off steam and to release stress. Of course, first on my current favorite videos in the Superbowl ad of the little Darth Vader …

The deal with singing “Bayang magiliw….”

Next time, I think it should be the National Historical Institute (NHI) who should concur with Manny Pacquiao on who should be singing the Philippine national anthem for his fights. Or better yet, maybe it should be someone from the NHI who should do the singing -- since no one so far, has passed their …

Inside the indulgent, dysfunctional, fantasy-like world of Manny P.

"He is in the car. I am in the car. Physically we are, both of us, in the car. Still, I wonder. It's now January. In December, I spent a week traversing the Philippine archipelago in a vain attempt to speak with this man. Though it is difficult to arrive at an exact number, it …

Here he goes again…

I'm sorry but I can't understand why the GREATEST BOXER of ALL TIME insists on being SHOWBIZ? Manny, you can't get respect by singing (badly) on entertainment shows. You have brought HONOR to the Philippines by being INSIDE THE RING. PLEASE STICK WITH IT.

A double whammy with Manny P. and Steven S.

Hu-Waaaaaaaw! Here's the movie of the decade! Anakngkamote! Steven Seagal wants to do a movie with Manny Pacquiao! The movie that will beat "Avatar", "The Blind Side"...hell even "Titanic" is about to be born In a story published by Spot PH, Seagal was quoted saying, that he was hoping to do "something in the Philippines …

Can we just ignore her? Please lang…

Did you watch The Buzz? Well, aside from Kris' intelligent disclosure of her marital woes (more on this later if I am in the mood), another issue, which in my opinion--played out long enough, was the never-ending issue of Krista Ranillo and her supposed involvement with Manny Pacquiao. Sorry Krista fans, if you are reading …

The best revenge to a philandering husband? Be breathtakingly beautiful!

I am never a big fan of Manny Pacquiao or his mom or his kids (who all look like him) or his wife, Jinkee. To me, Pacquaio is an amazing boxer who put Philippines on the map, a suspected philanderer on the same vein as Tiger Woods, while his mom has exhausted her 15 minutes …

Show me da Manny!

Manny Pacquiao is a subject I am most uncomfortable with. Sure, the man is History -- 7 belts across 7 boxing titles, he embodies the Filipino as his best. But the womanizing? the trying hard foray in politics? His entourage (read a good NY Times write-up on the Manny Pacquiao freak show)? His showbiz career? …
