Medyo nanibago ako sa set up ngayon ng fight ni papa Manny Pacquiao Salve. Nung sa Malaysia dahil siguro hindi kasing dami ng tao sa Vegas ang Malaysia kaya halos lahat ng manonood ng boxing nasasalubong mo sa lobby ng hotel, shopping area at kung saan saan. Dito sa Vegas hindi ko nakita ang staff ng 7, 2 at 5. Ang nasasalubong ko mga taga-Showtime na ginagawa ang special ng life ni Champ Manny. Bongga para gawin ng isang US show gaya ng Showtime ni Mario Lopez ang lifestory ni Manny. Talagang feeling yabang ka as Filipinl pag nakita mo adoration ng tao kay Manny. Kaya hindi kataka-taka na proud na proud si Mama Jinkee sa asawa niya. Sharing the glow ang pamilya Pacquiao at pati ang Jamora dahil feel nila ang love ng public kay Champ Manny Pacquiao na napaka-gracious sa lahat, Love you Champ Manny. #lolitkulit #instatalk #71naako
Meanwhile, the official Instagram account of Baeby Baste, who also hails from General Santos City like Pacquiao, did not forget to cheer for the Filipino boxing pride.
“Cheering and praying for Senator,” Baeby Baste’s page stated. JB
