Pacquiao vs Margarito Live in Kuwait

5:55 PM

At 4.30 a.m. today, me and my family trekked over to my aunt's place to watch the ultimate fight between Pacquiao and Margarito.

Woozy should be the word that describes the state of my head due to the flurry of activities such as snoozing the alarm clock one too many times, running around Dunkin Donuts to buy 2 dozen assorted sins in the form of sugar and figuring out why I'm there in the first place.

You see, I'm not a Pacquiao fan. In fact during the fight, I was quiet right until Margarito punches the heck out of Pacquiao wherein I would shout profanities. Seriously, I wanted him beaten too.

Welcome haters!

It's not like I want him to lose, no. I am, after all, born and bred in GenSan thus I still feel a sense of loyalty to the guy as he's also born and bred there. I want him to win but I also want a blow by blow punching from both sides. It looks so uneven watching him beat the hell out of Margarito. It's not exactly Pacquiao's fault since Margarito was slow with his return jabs and I have to admit that Pacquiao is really great with what he does. He is the epitome of a great boxer. Also, Margarito brought along his son, it should be illegal to make your child watch you get beaten to a pulp but you got to hand it to him for enduring the fight for 12 rounds.

Waleylung. Parang kulang sa bugbugan. Oh, speaking of beating the crap of each other, I am a little miffed with the undercard games result before the main event. The one with Jones and the Mexican guy. The mexican guy should've won. Jones did a flurry of punches, 89 punches, approximately during the second round but that was that. He lost his wind and his power punch that the rest of the game he was so out of it. The Mexican on the other hand had the pulpy face but he boxed on and he threw heavy punches. Real good ones too! So when the judges decision came out, I was a bit miffed that Jones was still undefeated. That Mexican dude deserved it.

Hhhhmm, I sound like I always go against the expected results but what the hey, I'm no expert in boxing, just my two fils worth.

Anyways, during the game my aunt served the best Chicken Arroz Caldo I've tasted in years since I've been here. It was comfort food to the fullest! Right after that, I fell asleep and just woke up past noon.

On top of all this, I'm still not over my flu, upper respiratory infection and a cough that won't let me sleep at night.

Tonight, we are going back to my aunt's place for a little victory party for Pacquiao. Should be fun. If my itchy throat would leave me alone for a second so I can eat the "papaitan" and "bopis" served.

Today is a good day. I'm beginning to think that it's going to be a good week because of the super long holiday due to Eid Al Adha =) So yey!

Congratulations Manny Pacquiao. Thank you for giving us Filipinos something to be proud of once again and for the humility/ compassion you've showed towards your opponent. I don't know how you're going to split or even count your 2 billion pesos winnings, not including the pay per view share, with the rest of your entourage but seriously Jinkee Pacquiao should have unlimited shopping credit in all the shops in Beverly Hills. Go team Jinkee!
