The “replay” button of this Youtube video, Sometimes When We Touch sung by Manny Pacquiao and Dan Hill , must have cried foul on me for repeatedly hitting it for so many times. Even my daughter complained about it. The thing is – I am not really a Manny Pacquiao fan. I have not seen any of his boxing fights. I am never interested. I only see clips of it when I watch Filipino news. This guy is definitely a newsmaker. Go figure.
Anyway, back to this video….it gives me chills listening to it. I see Manny Pacquiao in a different light. He is utterly romantic (and handsome…love the eyes). Let us face it, the man does not really have a diction like any other Filipino singers out there. But really, this video must have captured so many ladies’ hearts. Man, I am officially in love with the PacMan. Sshh….don’t tell my husband. 🙂 Besides, he remains the one.
Children are more techie nowadays. They adapt to new electronic gadgets very easily as compared to adults. It is a fad and a must for some to have these expensive toys. Gone are the days when board games top the chart. Now, PC and video gaming rules the world of children’s playtime. Have you heard of Prince of Persia Warrior Within or FIFA Street 2? If you like Xbox Games, you probably have. What about Madden NFL Football 08 2008 or Nascar 08? Yes, they are PS3 Games. Children with these kind of toys must be very lucky, because not every parent can afford it. It is mighty expensive and hard to find sometimes. I could still remember during Black Friday (the day after thanksgiving) last year, a lot of electronic stores ran out of stocks of these gadgets. A lot of people were fighting for their turn to buy, and even stayed overnight just to be the first in line. Sounds pathetic, right? But that is how famous and in demand these games are.
As for Amber, she wants a DS for her birthday. I barely have no time to save for it. It has to come with DS Games too or else she can not enjoy it. I am crossing my fingers that I can buy it for her though. It will be a dream come for her. She has been bugging me about it every time we got to stores. Her Barbie dolls are no longer interesting for her, because she sees children playing gadgets more. A kid will always be a kid, always keeping abreast with what other kids have or do.
Since I do not have TFC subscription in my house, I usually visit PinoyChannel.Tv to get updates about Philippine current news and events. I maybe physically far, but my heart still belongs to the Philippines. This morning when I logged in to the site, I was shocked to see a news concerning the death of actor Rudy Fernandez. I am not really a big fan of him, but I consider him as one of the best actors of our time. Not only that, I admire his well-publicized marriage with his wife Lorna Tolentino, which lasted till the day he died. As you know, it is not common for celebrity couples to stay long.
At 55 years old, Fernandez left his beloved family and friends after he lost his two-year battle with cancer on June 7,2008 6:15AM Philippine time. Truly, his death is a big loss to the movie industry. He is in heaven now, rejoining our Almighty God. Farewell, Rudy Fernandez.
