I watched news earlier and one of the headlines was the fight of Manny Pacquaio and Chris Algieri. Everyone is excited for this fight that will be happening on November 22, Saturday in Macau. In General Santos (Gensan) the province of Pacquaio, the city Government offers free live telecast and other places in Manila. Some of the restaurants and cinemas are offering pay-per-view as well. Here in our place one of the cable providers is offering pay-per-view (not sure for the price). My brother-in-law usually gets one for our family and some of the neighborhoods are also coming to watch the fight of Pacquaio. This man is really the pride of the Philippines and all his battles in the ring, you can be sure that the Filipinos are watching his fight. And because many Filipinos are working in Macau, I’m pretty sure they will support Pacquaio all the way. I’m a fan of this man when it comes to boxing and if there’s a chance to see his fight live I will not think twice and witness how he fights in the ring. Also in the news I heard that many big names in Hollywood are excited to see the fight and some of them include Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.

Manny in his previous interview wanted to win the fight and still hungry to win. His coach saw his determination and the moves of old Pacquaio in the ring. Good luck to your fight Pacquaio and make us proud again.

When selecting thoughtful gifts for special people in your life, pay homage to their history and contributions with some cherished keepsakes this season. Those who served in the armed forces will appreciate the thought behind military remembrances such as US Army memorabilia, and will feel validated by the gesture.
There are some intriguing ways to use pieces of memorabilia in a clever way that might become appealing elements of the recipient’s home. For example, a wooden plaque with an Army-affiliated decal can be a bit of character to place over the home’s mantle. Augment this with framed pictures of those serving to bring a special tribute to the family’s area. Another great gift idea could be found with a stately name plaque to go on the recipient’s desk or work-space. A small military motif next to the individual’s name might be the perfect touch that elevates this practical gift to becoming something truly special.
Another approach could be to use decals and patches in wooden shadowboxes for the gifted person. This will allow the recipient to add their own special touches and pieces to create a lasting memorial to the time they spent in the military.
Military gifts are an excellent idea for the sentimental time around the holidays. This will show those that you care about that you value and honor their service, and that you cared enough to give the present some thought and attention. These will be a great solution for some tough-to-buy-for individuals.

Help!! I have so many things in mind right now. My daughter’s 7th birthday is coming in two weeks (I should say less than 2 weeks). Honestly, I didn’t plan it ahead. She doesn’t like to have a birthday celebration. They said it’s now a tradition that you need to celebrate 7th birthday. Unlike in the past that it’s fine not to celebrate it. Or I said it because I didn’t celebrate my 7th birthday. I don’t remember that I did celebrate it.
So, just this month she decided to celebrate her birthday and the theme she wanted. Waahhh!! It is stressful. Thanks God, I already found a venue for her birthday. Its just it will be held at 10am. This is the only available time they gave to me. Regarding the food, of course the venue is responsible for the foods but I have to decide what the foods to be served. Need to do it next week. She doesn’t have a cake yet. I have in my mind but it cost much. I doubt if I will pursue this cake. The budget is tight so I need to find other available cakes. Decorations, giveaways and other stuff are not yet finalized. Really stressful but I hope the party will turn memorable.
