    Thank you for sharing this. I had such a wonderful time myself traveling and performing in philippine and this bought back so many memories.

  2. Los Angeles Laker fanboys are a group of scofflaws. Did anyone see the riots anfter the game 7 last Thursday? What kind of fans celebrate by destroying their own city? According to The Associated Press, thirty eight people were arrested for “public intoxication, vandalism or inciting a riot.” Probably doesn’t help to have thugs on the team. Kobe seems to have escaped that rape charge in Colorado just fine. In any case, the NBA is starting to seem kinda fixed. Los Angeles Lakers always appear to get more than their share. No wonder Lebron is irritated. Wonder if it’s because of Jack Nicholson.
