The Fight of the Century was several years in the making. And when Floyd and Manny finally sealed the deal, the boxing world rejoiced to the heavens! As boxing superstars in their own right, their recently concluded fight generated a tremendous amount of hype and publicity.

We all had a sigh of relief when Mary Jane Veloso was not called to face the gruesome Indonesian firing squad a few nights ago. Her plight in a foreign land and her pending execution for alleged drug trafficking moved us, and captured our sympathetic hearts.

Balesin Island Club is in hot water nowadays due to its now famous “yaya’s meal,” courtesy of a former beauty queen’s rants pertaining to it on her social media account. I didn’t know anything about this hullabaloo until a friend sent me a link to an article about it through a private message.

That time of the year that I dread the most has come – holy week.
My pronouncement I know sounds off-key to many ears, since why on earth I am saying this when you and the rest of the Christians out there look forward to it?

I had the privilege to be invited to the book launching of WINNING IN THE HUDDLE, by the author himself no less, and my high school batchmate Stauro Punongbayan. The book launching took place last Saturday (February 28) at Right Start Center, 2nd West Crame St. in San Juan City.

The rift between Xian Lim and Albay Governor Joey Salceda over the former’s alleged impolite behavior during an event in Albay has caught my attention.
The conflict arose from Xian’s refusal to accept Albayanon souvenir items that included a t-shirt, a coffee table book, a small bag, and some leaflets. Apparently, such items are the usual tokens given to distinguished visitors of the province.

Just recently, Kris Aquino unfollowed fellow celebrity Judy Ann Santos on Instagram, after the latter posted something not palatable to the former, with reference to PNOY’s absence during the arrival of the bodies of the so called Fallen 44 at Villamor Airbase last January 29.
