|Pacman - a national hero :)|
I was ecstatic when I saw the H20 Hotel Pacquaio-Marquez 4 deal from Metrodeal. I invited my brother and my friend who are both Pacman supporters like me.
There were a couple of undercards before the big match. While we were waiting for the main event, we got in line to get some food. They offered a couple of dishes - fish, chicken and sweet and sour pork. For dessert, they served some sort of mango jelly and fruits. We were all so hungry that we weren't able to take some pictures.
I finished eating just in time for the Gesta vs. Vazquez match - another Philippines vs Mexico fight. I didn't expect it to be so exciting! The next match, Farenas vs. Gamboa was equally thrilling. Since I didn't know any of them, I rooted for Farenas just because he's Filipino. It's just too bad that both our boxers lost.
|Empty plates - The food was simply too good :)|
I swear, the whole function room fell silent and for a minute I almost thought that Pacman wouldn't stand up again. When he finally got up and Marquez was declared the winner, we left the hotel right away.
I was so heartbroken. We were all heartbroken. But a huge part of me was relieved that Pacman was okay and smiling. I was kind of sad for a couple of days. But you know what? I became a bigger fan after this because of the way he handled the loss. He is such a gracious loser - a quality that we rarely see nowadays.
