Robredo Appeals to Fil-Ams to Help the Poor in Imelda Marcos-like Signature Gown

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Leni Robredo was not appreciated by netizens when she went to Los Angeles, California to urge Fil-Ams to help poor Filipinos back home. Bashers even ridiculed the way she copied Imelda Marcos’ sense of style for her signature gown. Nevertheless, it is just a big contrast to asking for help wearing a high-society outfit similar to her arch-rival Bongbong Marcos’ mother.

Fundraising Gala

Vice President Leni Robredo traveled to Los Angeles, California to meet with some members of the Filipino-American community. She was a guest at the fundraising gala of the Filipino American Symphony Orchestra (FASO). It was held at the Mary Pickford Estate.




FASO not a Political Group

FASO said that the invite-only fundraising event was meant to help “sustain concerts and music education programs.” It is not a political group. What sparks criticisms on Robredo was her speech. Obviously, the event was for the elite who spare some of their money to charity. Perhaps she had a good intention to influence donors to also contribute in her alleged projects for the poor.




Malnutrition and Hunger

In her speech at the gala, the Robredo reiterated the importance of helping the country’s less fortunate. She claims that her office aims to do through its flagship program, Angat Buhay. She emphasized the need to address malnutrition and hunger. “Silent crises” as she puts it leads to 95 child deaths a day.









Marawi City Seige

She also mentioned the situation in Marawi City where the ongoing clashes between government troops and the Maute local terror group are. Relief operations for families in the evacuation sites in Iligan, Cagayan de Oro, and Marawi are organized. The VP really did have good intentions but her being anti-administration really adds up to her unpopularity that triggers bashing on social media.

Tim Bradley is Manny Pacquiao’s Next Opponent

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
There have been many doubts if Manny Pacquiao will ever find another opponent that would interest the paying audience. The general public that will be watching the bout over the television might not change – but it will be a different story when there’s substantial money involved just to watch the fight. However, his boxing career refused to die easily. So, he has to climb up the ladder again. This article explains the real score:

Manny Pacquiao to fight Timothy Bradley on April 12th in rematch

It’s reported that Top Rank will be matching Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KO’s) against WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley (31-0, 12 KO’s) in a rematch on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Bradley-Pacquiao rematch will be announced next week, and a press tour will start on February 4th, starting in Los Angeles followed by New York on February 5th, according to Tempo.  http://www.boxingnews24.com/2014/01/manny-pacquiao-to-fight-timothy-bradley-on-april-12th-in-rematch/


Timothy Bradley might not be as interesting to be paired with Manny Pacquiao like the undefeated Floyd Mayweather – but there’s not much choice really. The Filipino boxer will need to show series of good fights to be in line with the undefeated Floyd Mayweather again!  The good news is, it’s exciting to be a witness to Manny Pacquaio’s rise or fall in the boxing arena once again!
