Netizens’ Unsolicited Advice for Pacquiao

After Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao demolished Jeff Horn’s pretty face and lost the fight many are wondering what the future holds for the Philippine’s boxing hero. Of course, overly concerned kababayans can’t help themselves but give unsolicited advice through social media on what Pacquiao’s next career step should be. 

So I posted a question on my wall and my FB friends and followers generously posted their reactions.  I am summarizing some of the comments here. 

Many of Pacquiao’s fans, who believe that their idol was robbed of a belt, are clamoring for a rematch.

“Rematch here in the Philippines and knockout that bastard Jeff Horn,” said Dolores Aperocho Borres.

Czaldy Garrote also wants Pacquiao to “have a fight in the Philippines and make lots of money.” 
Basco Aliño Fernandez’s advice is more forward looking — “rematch, run for president, and retire.”

While there are those who want their champ to enter the ring again, many are also saying that he should hang his gloves and retire. 

“Tama na sana, nothing to prove anymore,” said Kim Atienza.

“Retire but help train the next generation of Filipinos champions.” Joffre Balce said. 

“Retire with dignity. Put up a Pacquiao Boxing Academy.” urged Marilet Catapang. 

Others are saying that Pacquiao, a neophyte senator, should just concentrate in his political career. 

“Retire for good from boxing. Develop his statesmanship abilities.” Leonarda V. Capangpangan suggested. 

Robert Velhagen advised that Pacquiao should “focus on the job he was elected to.”

This sentiment is shared by Sol Nolasco who said that he should “focus on his political career.”

Of course, there are those who found the opportunity to hit on Senator Antonio Trillanes.

“Asarin na si Trillanes ng husto para sabay sila resign (Piss Trillanes off so they can retire together),” Edwin Alba Empestan jested.

“Bumawi kay (get back at) Trillanes via TKO. #everybodyhappy,” said Low Rain.

Lotlot Texan Gonzaga also suggested that he “knock-out Trillanes.”

Some say that Pacquiao, who is very vocal with his faith, should drop everything off and become a pastor. 

Nena Santos said that he can “retire ug mag pastor. Ayaw na politiko. Bilyonayo na siya. Mag ala Bill Gates na lang para mag tulong sa kapwa (Retire and become a pastor, not a politician. He is already a billionaire. He can be like Bill Gate and help others).” 

Whatever Pacquiao decides to do, one thing’s for sure, he can do it comfortably with all the money he earned receiving punches.

White House on Top of a Hill

The Island Garden City of Samal (IGaCoS) used to be known as the Moncadista Island, because it was once a colony of the Moncadistas, a religious group noted for eating only raw and uncooked food. In the late 1930’s they built two camps in Barangay Limao — Camp 23, a 23-hectare residential area for its members and Camp 19, a 19-hectare cultural heritage property where the White House is located.

The White House is where the group’s founder, Hilario Camino Moncado, used to occasionally stay. However, it was abandoned after its leader passed away at an early age. The property is still owned by the group and it is said that there are plans to renovate it and transform it into a tourism heritage center.

The house, which stands on top of a hill, gives visitors an amazing view of the Davao Gulf and the adjacent Davao City. It is not too far from the wharf in Babak, but the roads going up are a little rough. It is worth a visit though.

Pass the Biscuits

Here is one story I got from a friend via mail. It is an interesting lesson on life, relationship and friendship. I hope you will enjoy this.


When I was a kid, my mum liked to make breakfast food for dinner
every now & then & I remember one night in particular when she had
made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening
so long ago, my mum placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed!

Yet all my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my mum and ask me how my day was at school.

I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember hearing my mum apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I’ll never forget what he said: “Honey, I love burned biscuits.”

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned.

He wrapped me in his arms and said, “Your mummy put in a long hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And besides… A burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!”

You know, life is full of imperfect things… And imperfect people. I’m not the best at hardly anything and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else.

What I’ve learned over the years is that learning to accept each others faults and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences, is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

So…please pass me a biscuit. And yes, the burned one will do just fine!
And please pass this along to someonewho has enriched your life…I just did!

Life is too short to wake up with regrets… Love the people who treat you rightand forget about the ones who don’t.
