Pacman the Man!!!


I still can't believe what Manny had just done! Most boxing experts predicted that dela Hoya would knock out Pacquiao and that Pacquiao will not stand a chance. I'm shocked, the world is shocked! He just raised himself to another level.

I have to admit that I was literally shaking and feeling cold before the fight. My heart was pounding hard when both fighters were entering the ring. I had a great view right at the center of the arena with my two friends. We really felt the pressure of the match and we even said a prayer all together right before the match began.

After the first two rounds, I already felt that Manny was in control and that it was just a matter of time when he would knock out Dela Hoya. He just had to be careful with Dela Hoya's quick power left hooks. His maturity was evident as he was cautious throughout the fight, but still remaining aggressive. Every time Pacman threw a series of punches that threw Dela Hoya off balance, I would get off my seat and start throwing punches in the air as well.

After the referee stopped the fight after the 8th round, i raised my arms and got goose bumps. What a great feeling! Filipinos in the Grand Arena in MGM Grand were giving high fives to each other, hugging and rejoicing out loud! The match was clearly one-sided. Dela Hoya just didn't have the legs and the endurance to keep up with Manny's speed and power. Sadly, some Mexicans and Americans were booing dela Hoya for a poor fight. He was gracious in defeat though.

It's a great feeling for all Filipinos! I just feel so proud to be a Filipino, and moreover, Manny's co-host. I was lucky enough to have dinner with him in his suite the night before the fight. Actually I was still stuffed from a heavy merienda, but of course i didn't want to pass up the chance to eat with Manny in his Mandalay Bay (The Hotel) suite before the fight after he invited me. At least this time it's not in the Pinoy Records studio. So i ate his tinolang manok, fried fish, pork and beef. He even invited me to watch the Celtics vs Lakers game this December 25 in the Staples Center with him and his family since he bought box seat tickets. Too bad I won't be in the states at that time . The whole time he was so relaxed and cheerful as if there was no fight the following day. He was very confident that he would win because he told me to join him in his convoy going back to L.A. because it will be very very fun in the bus. I'm still thinking whether i should join them or not because i also want to stop by an outlet mall on the way back to L.A. Manny's really such a funny guy, i wish i can tell you more but i have to go.


We didn't join the after-party anymore in Rumjungle in Mandalay Bay since it was just sooo packed!! Instead, we went to Manny's room and luckily, bumped into Manny without having to brave the crowd. Again, lucky Chris gets to hug and congratulate his idol right before he went into his bedroom and locked it :)

It's 4am now and i think i have to sleep so i can attend the mass at 10am . So please pardon my very messy and incoherent entry. My mind isn't really functioning anymore. I'll update when i have more time :)

Chris

some other personality i saw in the match: Reggie Miller, Charles Barkley, Usher, Mike Tyson, and the Golden Boy boxers,(they announced that the following were in the arena as well although i didn't see them: JLo, Marc Anthony, Eva Longoria, George Lucas, Russel Crowe, Magic Johnson, and others) Of course lots of Filipino celebrities and politicians too :)

Congratulations Manny! Congratulations to all Filipinos! Mabuhay! :)

patty:) said...

i join you, Chris, in proudly saying mabuhay! :) and i'd really like to thank you for being so generous in staying up until very early in the morning to write a blog entry for us all to read :) sayang you won't be able to watch NBA there with Manny. but that's fine since Christmas Day naman yun, you should be here with your family :) and i agree, you're really such a lucky & blessed guy! :) savor the moments that you're there & the pix, don't forget! :) thanks a bunch, Chris! :) these are the moments when i feel proudest to be a Filipino! :)

wow what an experience! mabuhay ang mga Pinoy! :)

zir said...

Hahaha! Like what others told me, the fight is great.. Unfortunately, I did not have the time to watch it. I've been on my taekwondo competition lately. Hahaha!

What's so funny at the competition is that when we're having our fights, no one really cheered loudly. But when our head coach announced that Pacman won, (and the details weren't very accurate) A big cheer came out of the crowd. Hahaha! Wala lang....

eyaa.. said...

wow.. the two of you are really getting close to each other now unlike your comments before that i'd read.
haha..

he did well, honestly.
and we envy you for being there and with such welcome that manny's showing you.

enjoy your stay there again.
be safe.
:D

c16_c17 said...

hi Chris,

please say our congratulations to Manny! We're happy that he won his dream fight.

I'm very happy that he won, and honestly before the fight i am nervous because i don't know who's gonna win the fight. And luckily my friends texted me that Manny won nga, and i am shocked and teary eyes when i first read the message. I even jumped pa nga. . hehe

and like i've said before it's a very early Christmas gift for both of you and you have a double victory because first you won the Championship of this Season of UAAP and now Manny won the fight. Diba ang saya! ! Lucky charm nyo yata ang isa't isa hehe. .

i don't get a chance to watch your interview on Showbiz Central because i am fixing my thesis. And it'll be my defence tomorrow or by tuesday. I just stop kasi nung fight na ni Manny, but it's ok naman, it's worth it!

And i'm very inspired of my thesis because you're my "inspiration!" hehe

wish you come back here in the Philippines. hindi pa nga kita nakikita sa personal ang layo mo pa ngayon. . hehe

i guess it's enough for me now. . I have so many programs to do pa eh. .

take care and godbless always :))

Yeah! Congrats to Manny and Congrats to us Filipinos! He's really amazing. As i've told everyone i knew...they shouldn't estimate what this not-so-tall man can do! He's maybe smaller than dela Hoya but he really has the heart and guts to win this battle. I'm so proud of him! I'm proud to be PINOY!

He made us reunited despite our differences and forget our problems even just for this day!

Wow!!! You're so lucky Chris! Aside from the fact that you had the chance to watch the fight live...you also saw those big stars you mentioned! Tsk! Tsk! How i really wish i'm also lucky as you!

Well, this is gonna be the longest comment i ever posted in your blog. lol. Where will you be back home? Miss you MR. TIU! Take care always! God bless!

P.S: How i wish you'd also be in the big dome tom for PCC. Hope your team mates will defend your crown. Good luck!Go Ateneo! ONE BIG FIGHT!

Lucky you!!! The story about how you were with THE Pacman before and after the big fight will be something to tell your kids and grandkids. Classic!!

The excitement is evident in your entry and "incoherence"! Thanks for sharing. Cool to get the inside scoop. Ive been googling to find insider Pacman stories. Go na with bus para you can share more. :-D

CjOyz said...

Hi chris would just like to ask you a question, why didnt you play in this season of PCC? im just curious...hehehe ciao and tc...

Alyssa said...

YEY! im first!
CHRIS,
I won 10,000 pesos because
of that match against my kuya.
Hahaha ;)) my 5k was doubled.

Ang saya! Lahat ng pilipino
as in super support kay Manny.
Nanuod ako sa cinema. Ang inggay nila. Ang sarap tignan pag sabay sabay sumisigaw. Hahaha =))

I heard nga pala
sa news na maraming
fans ni pacman na heart-attack kanina, while watching the dream match, dalawa yung namatay.

Bitter-Sweet Victory after all.

AYUN! na share ko lang.
Have a safe trip home!

congrats chris for winning the n.k.c. award.. haha!..
i just wanna ask if you'll be visiting Holy Angel University in Pampanga, is that true? when is it?? what is that for??
please please please keep me updated.. i will definitely go there, if ever.. waha!..

Alyssa Lim said...

Hehehe i think you should go to the outlet that you've said in your entry because when we are going in back to LA from vegas we all ways stop by in that outlet its cheaper than the usual store. when you're already in LA you better go to COSCO to gadgets in cheaper prices!!(just incase you want to buy new gadgets!!)

:P

nica said...

OMG Chris! Kainggit ka naman and you've seen all the excitement! We watched the fight (just inside my aunt's house) and we were all screaming and jumping out of our seats!

I dont understand those who booed dela Hoya. He's very gracious and only had nice words for Manny. It just shows that he's really a good sport and he shouldnt be booed. In fact, he should be praised!

Too bad you cant go and see Celtics and Lakers game. I was hoping you would. And I hope you'd also join Manny in his bus so that you'd have fun too!

Anonymous said...

Wow first to comment! Anyways I've been checking your blog site every now and then to see if you have a new entry. Oh well, as you said you are really lucky, having elbow to elbow with the People's Champ! Just send our congratulations to the champ and also I congratulate you for winning the favourite athlete in the nick awards (eventhough it's a bit late for me to congratulate you). God Bless the two of you and your family. Looking forward for your next entry. ^.^

Congrats to Mr. Manny Pacquiao! Galing!

I just want to say condolence to your co-kapuso star Marky Cielo. :(

manny fan said...

if youre drivng down from vegas to LA. the only outlet stores worth really stopping by are ontario mills or cabazon. cabazon is 40 minute detour but should be worth it. its the biggest outlet in socal. ontario mills is much smaller but on the way. dont stop by primm or cabazon because theyre both garbage.

Hi chris! You're on line.. lol.
Sad:( coz you're teammates did not defend your crown in PCC. You're one of the missing piece in their game. Maybe you could win if only you had the chance to play today. But that's ok, you're still the champs for me... :)

Roxi said...

Hey Chris! This is Roxi. I sent a message through Chinky Chicken's contact number regarding an interview request. I didn't know how I could reach you aside from giving the letter to your employees at your branch at MC.

The interview is for our thesis about blogging. Hope you can help us out with it.

Thank you and God Bless. :)

hi Chris,

ui talo ADMU against DLSU sa Philippine Collegiate Championship kanina. . sad nga eh finals pa naman. . kaw kasi hindi ka pa umuwi eh. . pati si Buenafe ala din. . pero ok lang naman ang laban, baka pinagbigyan lang nla ang DLSU hehe. .

kasama sa Mythical 5 sina Rabeh at Nonoy. si Rabeh nga nung 4th quarter na ata yun parang napikon ata ky Mangahas. . hehe nagulat nga ako nung medyo nagreact si Mangahas. hehe

and nga pala. . ang galing mo na talagang maghost. . pati ate ko sinasabi na ang galing galing mo na talaga! ang ganda ng Ripley's kanina. .
Congrats ha!

take care and godbless!Ü

Yes it's great to be Filipino! no matter the odds, pinoys stood up a good fight, just like manny. Win or lose, Pinoy pa rin!

Sherryl said...

I watched Ripley's last night. When are you going to start doing the voice over on the videos ? Same with Pinoy Records. It would be nicer if you would be the one explaining the content. Just a thought :) Tsaka, konting timing tuwing naglilipat ang camera, kasi nauuna ka eh. Nakatingin ka na sa kabilang camera, eh naka focus pa rin sa yo ang current one. :) Otherwise, pwedeng pwede na.

I love you, Chris !! >:D<

haha! the fight was great - never thought I'd get to watch it but then, it was a delayed telecast over GMA7 - my teacher already txted me that dela Hoya retreated even before the telecast started - ugh! but anyway, it was a great match - no surprise though, Manny had it in him. he was fighting with a full heart for the whole Filipino community unlike dela Hoya and that made a whole lot of difference.

we're just sad with the recent result of PCC though... T_T

Just sad that the Eagles lost to DLSU in the finals of the Collegiate Games last Monday. Winning that too would have been a wonderful end to a great 2008 season.

i am not sure if Mr. Chris Tiu gets to read comments over his blog. But since there came a chris tiu mania in school (he'll be visiting HOLY ANGEL UNIVERSITY in Angeles City) which i must admit i am a fan too.

i am not much of a techie person to search the net for long hours or spend more time sitting in front of our desktop or my notebook. but to get to know more of him (Mr. Tiu), i tried. Lucky to find out his blog and read some of it. i am surprised that an icon like him really takes time in splurging hours to makes his blog even in the wee hours in the morning. more so, he really gets the detail and elaborate every event he went to. Its as if he's trying to inform his readers what a great day he had.

i now admit that i'll also look forward in reading some of his responses or some of his kwento.

One best thing about his blog is that i am learning. keep on writing man!

hi chris. i don't think you remember me but we met at Beyonce's concert, November last year (i was the one who took your picture together with your friends cuz i was sitting right behind you guys. lol). so anyway, just wanted to ask if you happen to know Manny Pacquiao's e-mail address or if you guys have an e-mail address in your show (Pinoy Records)? there's this orphanage that needs help and i (sort of) volunteered myself to look for his e-mail. :) so, uhm. thanks. hope you'll reply:)

hey! im really glad manny won against dela hoya but a lot of my friends were telling me that the game was just a give-away fight or something of that sort. But ive watched the fight myself and i told them that i know manny can knock out dela hoya if they still continued to fight in the 9th round.

ANyway, i want to ask if i could apply to mega publishing as i am planning to take my ojt this coming summer of 2009? and i also want to know if there are benefits? Btw, im a business tsudent from psba,qc. Hope you could answer my questions. Thanx a lot. Ingat!

sherilyn said...

hi chris,

are you here in the Philippines already?

I failed to catch you on SIS, I am in school...

Ateneo lost to La salle in the pcc...wish you're there to help the blue eagles..well, ateneo are still the uaap champs!

It's kinda late but I want to congratulate you in the meg teens choice award! It is featured in the december issue of the mag..

ainan said...

I watched the game and felt so proud when Mr Pacquiao brought home the belt, you're so lucky you witnessed all of these in your own naked eye. Enjoy your vacation, just saw manny awhile ago on his motorcade here in dapitan

:)

ainan said...

Long Live! really for Manny Pacquiao, Kudos! for a job well done, he shocked the world with his glory and might in the boxing ring.

You're really lucky you witnessed all of that! I know it was a lifetime memories you'll treasure.

Hope, you conduct a fans day before christmas or during the yuletide seASON, That will be a wonderful gift and thanks to all your fans out there.

:)

Cute ng pic mo holding the Philippine flag. I'm happy that you're proud to be Pinoy!

Thanks for posting some of your pictures in the Dream Match fight.

I'll watch mastershowman kahit 5am na ipalabas ung appearance mo. hehe.

Take care!!! Mwaah!

alex said...

wow! that's all i can say for what manny have done but can i ask a small favor out you, since you know him? can you teach manny some humility? i like him when his in the ring, knocking down his oppenent but the moment he step out of that ring, he transform into this mega-yabang guy. He deserve to act like that in a way but please tell him not to over do it. Please remind him that the whole country love him, even the kids and his being mayabang is not the value kid's should patronize about him.

btw, you're so cute in the cover of meg and congrat's for winning the favorite athlete.

what can you say to the loss of the eagles against la salle for pcc title?..

take care always..

Nadine Camille said...

Wow! You're so luck. You had a chance to meet him..haha!

Erine said...

hei,,, I just bought the mag... Its cool...

NAkakatuwa naman yung entry mo.. HAHahaha.. The feeling of goosebumps must be too overwhelming at that time.. Bihira lang sa mga pinoy ang makapanood ng isang laban that only MAnny PAcquiao can give... Lucky Chris.. HAHahahaha.. Ang cute mo sa pic...

May insomia ka ba? Everytime you post an entry, its always during late nights and early mornings....(kahit nandito k pa sa pilipinas..hmmm...)

btw... congratz for winning the fave athlete award in the nick choice award..
Always smile coz there's always a good day ahead.. God bless..(=';'=)

Mikee said...

Hi Chris, is it possible for you to greet my friend who is a huge fan of yours? She will be celebrating her birthday next week and I don't really know what to give her. She has done so many things for me already and I want to repay her. I believe that, a birthday greeting from you would make her so happy, and I think that this is the best gift that I can give her. Either advance or belated will do, thank you so much.

i'm so impressed because you were so nice and you really praised our school..

i'm really sorry if some students take advantaged taking pictures of you..=) maybe they jsut can't help it because they were really starstruck by your presence.

i was really hoping to answer one of your questions but i got mental blocked,..(don't know why)=)

btw, It was really a greta experience to see you in person..
I'm your no.1 fan, i really hurried going to school just to see you although i'm still sleepy.

but seeing you and hearing you was already enough..

Goodluck in your career kuya chris..

Hey!congrats!
Glad to see your pic with the philippine flag..
So proud to be pinoy!

Anyway,I just want to ask the reason why you did'nt play on the recent PCC?
How sad that ateneo did'nt win the play over la salle..
However, its ok.I think team ateneo understands your commitments.

Keep it up..you're the man!

Hehehehehe!

Hey, Chris!ü Just this afternoon, my mom handed me an article from the Inquirer featuring your Read Along Session with numerous kids. Included therein was a picture of you with the kids and the link to where we could all watch the video of your storytelling-- http://inquirer.net/vdo/player.php?vid=2039
Twas so nice! Haha. You're not too bad at speaking tagalog after all huh! And the interview was nice. Good job!ü Continue your advocacy of helping out to the Public Education Sector here in our country. Not everyone is given the chance to study in prestigious universities and reach out to the less fortunate ones. Two thumbs up to you for being the blessed and generous one!ü

Also, finally, I was able to purchase my own copy of the Meg mag! Don't cha think that sooo cool? Haha!ü I bought one for my sister as well since she's sooo dying to have one too. Haha!ü Of course, there were infos included inside that we didn't know before we got our copy. (I won't disclose them. Na uh! Grab your own copy fellas and find out for yourselves!:P) The pics were great too! Twas, all in all, worth every penny. A good buy indeed!ü

I think that'd be enough for now. I missed leaving comments here. Aww.

Before everyone starts sending you Christmas greetings, I'd like to be one of the first to do so, in advance though. I hope you won't mind since Christmas Day is like 7 days from now. Haha!ü OK, here's the touching part (hahaha!), May Tiü have a splendid Christmas, Chris! This year has been a greatly successful one for you. I am happy and proud of you and what you've achieved and will still achieve. I join all the other Tiünatics (as we all are fondly called) in expressing our deepest gratitude to you for being truly an inspiration to us. With your every jump shot, every assist pass, every good deed, every blog entry, every episode of your shows, and everything else that you do, you put smiles on our faces. I never imagined that there would be a being as nearly perfect, if not perfect as you are. I only wish that you be blessed more of what you already have and still don't have yet. Be happy, Chris. Go farther, aim higher, soar the mightiest!ü

chrissy said...
