Welcome!!!
Hello and welcome to my site. A personal page for me to blog about my experiences, spur of the moment thoughts, feelings, travel, and etc. I hope you have fun reading my entries as much as I enjoyed writing them. Please feel free to leave your comments and messages.


Well, first of all... I'm really not a Mar Roxas supporter. But I was so surprised and moved when I saw him formally announcing his withdrawal from the 2010 presidential election earlier in the news today. It was such a big and dramatic move in his part after all the campaigning he had already done for some time.

What he did spoke highly of the good values he really had. I believe that this decision made him become the better man in the whole situation. He sacrificed his dream of leading the Philippines to give way for his friend and colleague Sen. Noynoy Aquino.

You can see a smidge of sadness in Mar's eyes during his whole speech, despite of his obvious efforts to cover his emotions up but he handled it with composure and poise. His supporters couldn't help themselves from crying over what has happened. But their admiration for the public figure had just grown bigger as stated after the press conference.

What a noble act from a true gentleman.

    what sen. mar did made him a true statesman. siguro mahirap din sa kalooban nya na ipostpone muna ang kanyang pangarap but he had to stay true to his service for the people, and one of them probably is to listen to the clamor of the majority.

    If Korina and Mar will get married soon, then i guess its a good decision to postponed his presidential candidacy. Family first, after all Korina is not getting any younger. Sana magka baby pa sila.

    hi Bailey!

    I personally wont vote for him if ever he pursues his candidacy. But this thing that he did earlier, he regained my respect. Very noble.

    Sis, napanuod ko yung live announcement na yan.

    Ako naman maka-Roxas kaya sobrang nawalan ako ng gana bumoto sa 2010. I turned 18 nung March, AT Wala sa Bokubularyo ko bumoto until the day i idolize Mar. Sayang. :(

    But now, I admire him even more.
