Round to Pac.
Round 8: Pac's winning…but anyone that says the outside ring goings on haven't bothered him…think again. Right hook from Solis. Counter left from Pac. 4 punches from Pac unanswered & down he goes on an upper left.
He barely got up. Pac comes out & nails him with an upper again & he's down again.
Here's my opinion…Solis wasn't all that…he was a bit awkward & had some reach...but honestly...it seems that Pac was a bit more unmotivated as usual...he needs to figure out whether or not he's a singer, politician, or a boxer.

unlucky came early
given the budget cuts in my department, i have been asked to move into the operations department. however, my salary is retained. still, it was frustrating and killing my emotional psyche. (i would term it as a temporary demotion)
sabi nga ng Canadian boss ko, this opens the door for new opportunities. she even added that i have good traits for the supervisory openings.
thanks for those who gave me backing and support.

anyhow, it was a fun-filled past 2 days, as i got to enjoy the night with good people.
friday-saturday: it was sitti's performance at the Mall of Asia (the 2nd time i got to go there, both times it was for her). she was joined there by the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra. grabe, ang galing niya. awe-struck. fun. the sittizens were there also. after the gig, we ate at pizza hut (c/o JT: happy birthday!) and then coffee at starbux! wow... went home a happy happy man.
saturday-sunday: first went to eastwood... jeff got me a copy of imago's first album (which is pretty much hard-to-find nowadays). tried to get to listen to raffi and the company, pero 830 na wala pa rin... proceeded to vodka ice bar at greenbelt for the RX Toga party, which was plain insane. the paparazzi was at work again. got to meet good people. grabe, ang saya. :) even droppped by RX afterwards. so there. just awesome, what can i say.
btw, congrats to the graduates.
