Pacquiao versus Solis result

Pacquiao sent Solis in the canvass in the 8th round . This is the latest news roaring around the Philippines.

I hope Filipinos particularly in General Santos city where pacman is eyeing a congressional post will not judge him according to his boxing expertise to get their nod in voting for him.

Pacquiao vs. Solis

Posted by Admin on April 15, 2007

Strictly sports not politics, I don’t realy like Many running as congressman, what can he offer to the people? How can he depend a bill and what bill? Where is he during the campaign period to explain to the people why they should vote for him?

Sometimes I’m also thinking twice whether to cheer for him in his real fight which is boxing or not because he is realy disappointing in entering politics.

Anyway his fight today is a must see only but surely not a must vote.

Posted by Admin on April 2, 2007

Many basketball loving kabayans in Dubai are asking me where to buy tickets of the upcoming Purefoods vs. Barangay Ginebra clash in Dubai on April 13, 2007. To my surprise, I can’t find any postings in the internet or even in the PBA website, so I just patiently wait or the announcement of TFC on their Global Post program, but to my dismay, TFC is just showing it in a blink of an eye so I can’t write it properly to post in my blog.

Anyway, I still remember few of the informations and I hope it can answer your questions.

You can buy tickets from Dhs 100.00 to 300.00 at the following ticket outlets.

  • Al Attar Mall in Karama
  • Tagpuan Restaurant in Karama
  • Bulwagan Restaurant
  • Any Mediacom / ABS-CBN office or outlets

These infos are incomplete, for more infos watch TFC Global Post.
