Until Then

Manny Pacquiao battered Miguel Cotto for his record holding 7th World Championship Title in Boxing. Yahooooooo! Goooogle. My Boooooot.

Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!!!
Mabuhay si Manny Pacquiao.

"This is the last weight division for me," Pacquiao said. "It's history for me and more importantly a Filipino did it."

Oo nga naman, a Filipino did it. After sa bagyo at baha, the tragic fate of Z Zorres and the defeat of Brandon Vera, Manny saves the day, and everything seems to be ok, again. . Heck, even the release of father Sinnott could be attributed to Manny. ''Your freedom is our freedom. We don't want to be here for a long time too. And we want to watch Pacquiao's fight,'' he said recalling his conversation with his kidnappers. Freaking awesome, don't you think. Ako na lang ata ang indi OK nowadays, but I'll spare you the drama (or the lack of it).

The question remains, though. Until when Manny? Until when? As much as we want you to keep on making us proud (at least in the boxing ring), you can't do it forever, it is something that is academic. Doing it in politics is an entirely different story. No matter how noble your intentions are, you'll stink there. Salig lang.

To say you're an inspiration to the nation is an understatement. But, when do we really begin to step up as a nation, take a cue from you, and actually start believing in each respective's self (labo noh?)that we can actually do it and make it, big. I am not referring to individuals who've shined and made it big in the world, which in itself came few and far in between. But as nation, as a whole, having that kind of psyche, a believer in one's greatness. (and all the cheese in the world to boot)

I don't know. I have no answers even for my self.

til then na lang siguro.

Big thanks to Manny. Pilipinas got lucky to have you.

Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!!!
