Yesterday, Manny Pacquiao did every Filipino — young and old, rich or otherwise — very very proud once again! Pacman crushed Erik Morales just minutes on the tenth round of their scheduled 12-rounder in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Also, yesterday was the Town Fiesta of Barangays Bangkal & Pio Del Pilar in Makati City — in honour of San Ildefonso (January 23). Quite odd, because when the time “The Battle” started at around 12nn in Channel 2, the usually busy streets of Evangelista and Antonio Arnaiz (Pasay Road) suddenly got empty! Hehehe. Seems that there is no town fiesta at all — because everyone was stucked to their television sets watching the Pacquiao-Morales fight.
Here are some pics taken from my mobile phone during the festivities in the afternoon (BMX exhibitions & marching bands):
