Manny Pacquiao in The National

Manny Pacquiao in the UAE's The National

I liked that the news about Manny Pacquiao's preparation for the fight with Shane Mosley is on the front page of the The National today. He's probably the most popular Filipino in the eyes of the UAE residents, both locals and expats. I recall one of our random encounters with tourists in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (Formula 1) last year, instead of asking about the weather or President Noynoy, they babbled about how good Pacquiao is... plus, how intriguing is our balut. Going back to The National, which is by the way one of the top 2 English broadsheets in the UAE, I also liked that there is a dedicated portion/link (on the top right) about The Manny Pacquiao Story.

Very proud of Manny:) and I am missing Balut at the moment. I'm a fan of the boxer Manny but I don't watch his fights, I get too nervous.

I was able to watch on tv his fight with Antonio Barrera, nakakakaba. Feeling ko ako yung nasusuntok. Hahaha.
