"For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted." Manny quoting Matthew 23:12. I’m cryiiiiiing. God gave you the victory, Manny!
These days it’s so hard to see athletes and fighters who don’t brag about themselves and their achievements. It’s even harder to find one who actually BELIEVES in God. I’m so glad Manny has found his new fire in God! His boxing journey clearly isn’t over yet! He never spoke about how good he was, or how much better he is than his opponent; he just kept saying that he’ll do his best and train harder and pray harder—-and that’s coming from an 8 division World Champion! :D
You’re the best Manny! :D
I didn’t expect Moalboal to be so beautiful. I always heard stories about it’s white-sand beach and sea but I didn’t make a fuss about it, since I’ve lived in Mactan my whole life and it was a resort haven in itself. I never expected the warm, fine sand to stretch out so far that the the shoreline was basically all you could see for a mile or so. I never expected the water to be so high and so blue and so deep near the shore. I never expected that I’ll find it somewhere tucked away in Cebu, like a secret.
Except that it wasn’t a secret; I was simply missing out.
I’m so glad I’ve come. The journey was well worth every second. :)
