Last Sunday at a media tour I attended, I was able to squeeze in a couple of questions to Fighter of the Decade and Filipino icon Congressman Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao:
Excuse my poor video editing skills, it’s my first time to try it out on YouTube’s editor 🙂 (Let me know if you like it – if so, I’m thinking about posting more video content!)
The tour is part of a promotional campaign leading up to “Clash in Cotai II” – Manny Pacquiao’s fight next month against New York’s undefeated WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs).
That was my first time ever to board one of Hong Kong’s iconic red-sailed Chinese junks; this one was called “Aqua Luna”.
After three and a half years living here, it amazes me that I’m still doing things for the first time, almost everyday. It’s probably one of the things I take for granted about this city.
From the press release:
Pacquiao made a special appearance Sunday at Statue Square in Central to meet some of the members of Hong Kong’s Filipino community. The national icon received a warm welcome from the excited group who are part of the community of overseas Filipino workers making a living in Hong Kong.
Later that evening, Pacquiao met with the respective representatives from the Philippine Consulate Generals of Hong Kong and Macao, at a meet and greet cocktail. Also in attendance were some of Hong Kong’s Filipino business professionals and community leaders.
