I had a chat with a friend our topic revolved around emotion. I have been on the side that our emotions should be accepted because these things are the reflections of what is deep inside us.

Tracking a new coffee brand

Its normal here in Guam to have a full convenient store in most of the gas station. One nearby my apartment is Mobil.

I got curious what coffee is this Green Mountain Coffee.
So stepped in and I was surprised with the price, its just a $1.19 for the large cup. My problem only is that this one is not really a gourmet coffee, its machine made or sort of...probably it was mix and then fed to the machine.

Though they have coffees in the thermos container, I am not quite sure if should I categorized it as "The Coffee" thing. I have just tried the coffee from the machine, tomorrow I will try the coffee in the thermos before I say that this is "The Coffee".

Hatton Annihilated!!!!!

Our very own Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao defeated the Hitman in the second round of their fight in Las Vegas.

Hatton was stunned in the first round when the Pacman knocked him out. As I have seen in the wide screen of the fight being shown in Marriott Hotel here in Guam, Hatton was disoriented on that KO thus he has lost his focus in the fight.

Predictions is that Manny will knock Hatton on the 6-8 round but everyone was surprised on the 2nd round knockout. Manny's skill and power with coach Freddie Roach's guidance has made Team Pacquiao win another title.

As was announced during the after fight interview, Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao is now the no. 1 boxer. Bob Arum of Top Rank even commented that Manny is a learning athlete. That in time Manny will be known as the greatest boxer of all time due to his humble and passion for boxing.Manny thank all his supporters who came to see his fight amidst the A(H1N1) virus scare, he thank the Filipino people who has been supporting him for all his fights, and to all boxing fans who keeps the sport one of the most popular sport in the world.

Also commented during the fight is Manny's religiosity. Before going in to the fight Manny knelt down to say his usual prayer. It is his way of showing to the world that there is nothing impossible in God.
