anyways, meet Mali, the 31 year old elephant resident and the star of Manila Zoo... and yes she is indeed the same elephant trotting at the zoo when i was still a kid!

we all grow up hearing "hopia, mani, popcorn" being chanted by street vendors and its nice to still see the colorful popcorn that we loved as kids still being peddled at the streets. :) LOL i am sounding like the old lola

and there was an album released titled "hopia mani popcorn" which is a compilation of manila sound hit songs during the 70s

Situation Number one
Its the one that's just begun
But evidently its too late
Situation Number two
Its the only chance for you
It's controlled by denizens of hate
Situation Number three
It's the one that no one sees
All too often dismissed as fate
Situation Number four
The one that left you wanting more
Tantalized you with its bait

just perfect! i am not saying that this photo is perfect, there are lots more beautiful sunset out there but a perfect photo for me looks surreal and painting like if you know what i mean... and besides manny pacquiao won, as expected - putting ricky hatton on the 2nd round! - dang that was sooo good, i expected him to win but not that too early round but still it was the perfect left uppercut and most wicked punch ever :)

and so typical of me, i have forgotten that this blog turned two years old last april 27, yehey happy anniversary to my blog :)

watch pacquiao vs. hatton live

tomorrow we can watch the much awaited fight between manny pacquiao vs. ricky hatton at MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas.  for those who cannot watch the the boxing match live, worry not because you can still watch pacquiao vs. hatton live via pay per view at movie cinemas for a price of course. if i remeber correctly, in the last three fights of pacquiao the theater owners allot two or more cinemas to show the fight live. and i think they are doing great in that business since they know that there are a lot of manny pacquiao fans who wants to view the fight live. as for me i just get the latest news from the web, still updated while wating for the delayed telecast in free tv hehehe.  by the way this photo of pacquiao vs. hatton was taken at shangrila mall.

so who do you think will win? my forecast? manny pacquiao wins
