Up-close and personal with PACMAN!

My trip to General Santos City was supposedly purely business. I was given a chance to document the World Vision's Anti-Tuberculosis campaign Trainers Training held at Ice Castle Hotel from June 8-10, 2011. This is my first time to document outside my workplace and am very thankful to all the participants for being supportive and generous of their outputs. On early June 11, 2011 around 5:00 am, were about to ride a tricycle going to the bus station, my good buddy Ethel saw the HUMMER of no less than the People's Champ. Honorable Congressman Emmanuel "Manny Pacman" Pacquiao in front of the JMIX mall owned by the later. To our excitement carrying our luggage we ran to the security guard and asked if Pacman was inside the mall. The guard told us yes he is inside at the PACMAN's Sports Bar playing billiards. We plea to the guard if we can go inside just to pip the World Champ. When he nod and say YES we are so happy, were rushing cause we can't wait to see PACMAN personally. When we saw him playing we thought we will not be given a chance to have a souvenir picture with him but so thankful to the body guard whom I met at their mansion on our first attempt to meet PACMAN, he remember me and during the break he told Manny about our request. We are so delighted when were called to enter the Bar and Hon. Pacman personally granted our request. We are so overwhelm with PACMAN's humility and kindness. It was indeed a one and a life time experience.

"Feeling close with PACMAN"

"Ethel, Hon. PACMAN, me and Jan-jan"
