Manny Pacquiao Won Over Antonio Margarito!

Pacquiao won over Margarito! Wow this may be the sweetest phrase that we all want to hear on Sunday, November 14. Well, I have confidence that Manny can defeat Margarito by his fast moves. Indeed, Margarito is far taller than Manny but he is slow, however, let's not be complacent because his reach is longer than Pacquiao's. Let's just wait and see.

The death of press secretary Serge Remonde

I felt sad when I read about the sudden death of Press Secretary Serge Remonde. I just found the breaking news when I was browsing on Yahoo homepage yesterday, less than 1 hour after his death. I was shocked because I used to see him on the evening news delivering speeches, answering questions, etc., and now, he is dead. He was just interviewed by Vic de Leon Lima and Karen Davila two weeks ago. Vic Lima commented that the press secretary was very 'cool' in answering questions about the failures and alleged issues concerning the current administration.
I am sure many people especially the anti-administration used to get mad at Serge Remonde but I think he just did his job to defend the president. His sudden death brought sorrow to his family, friends, relatives, subordinates, many politicians and many Filipinos who loved him. I don't know him personally but I am sure that he was a good person because he served the nation to his grave.
