Philippine Teams Win at 2012 2nd Bi-Annual Pacific Asia Youth Games in Guam

Congratulations to the Philippine football under 12 team and the De La Salle Zobel-Philippine volleyball team under-14Ā  for winning the titles under their division at the recent 2012 2nd Bi-Annual Pacific Asia Youth Games in Guam. More about their victory here.

Hooray for KB (or is it CB) who belongs to the Philippine football under 12 team. I’m sure you will be getting more soccer trophies in the years to come.

Sports is a great way for children to not just enjoy being outdoors, but to learn about cooperation, following rules, discipline and focus.

Sa kabila ng pagsasabing “It’s more fun in the Philippines” dapat din bigyan ng pansin ang nakalulungkot na kalagayan ng ating kapiligiran bunga ng pagmimina.

Narito ang ilang mga larawang nagpapakita ng ilan lang mga lugar na mayroong pagmimina sa Pilipinas:

Maria Aragon Lady Gaga Cover Goes Viral

I was probably one of the few hundreds to view this video of Maria Aragon Lady Gaga “Born This Way” cover at 300,000 + views last Wednesday or Thursday and now this has more than 6 million views! Wow!

Maria Aragon, of Filipino descent born and raised in Canada, is making us proud. But for me, it doesn’t matter if she has Filipino blood or none, she is a joy to watch.

In the other video at the radio station when she cried while talking to Lady Gaga, I felt like crying too šŸ˜€

You got a long way to go young lady and I hope you do get to enjoy what you love to do with your feet firmly planted on the ground.
