Pacquiao wins, Filipinos rejoice12:09 AM Friday November 11, 2016 |

I sat beside some government officials from the Philippines. All of us didn’t want to leave the venue even after the bout.
There was an unwritten bond among the Filipino spectators. Parang walang gustong umuwi. Everyone was savoring the sweet win.

Filipino fans were rejoicing of course.

There were camera crews outside the Thomas & Mack randomly interviewing familiar faces.

I heard people asking “Sino na nga ba yan? Sino daw yan?” I told my sister to go ask this lady what her name was. Ayaw, nakakahiya daw tanungin “Hello, anong pangalan mo?”

Martin Dino (pronounced as dinyo) was the candidate who registered first with the Comelec while Duterte was still preparing for the run. Dino later withdrew to give way to Duterte.
He was there at Manny Pacquiao’s fight too.

Cesar Montano has a very pretty companion, a blonde and tall girl named Sophie. She looks like a Barbie doll.

We waited for everyone else to leave before we called an Uber. We didn’t want to get caught in a traffic jam with all those thousands of people getting out of the parking. Unfortunately, na stress pa ako sa Uber driver kasi she parked on the other side of Thomas & Mack. It took us at least 15 minutes to locate each other. The driver was a Filipina in her mid-30s.
