Been a while…   Leave a comment

I know that I have been missing all the action when it comes to blogging. And I dearly miss it not for the reason that I miss to quote and unquote my wisdom or the so-called outlook. But for the very reason that I have refrained and constrained my brain to think beyond my regular work.

Something that I often wondered about, somethings that I was regularly intrigued about. But given the fact that I have missed from action for 2 months in a row, I would rather admit it that I was complacent.

But having said “Complacent” does it mean, you will see more of me. I think I would rather pose that question to myself and make myself aware of things that can still be done as I know it’s humanly possible.

So I will sign off with this off note and up beat thought that I shall return regularly and go wild with my thoughts and try to amuse my beloved lovers once again.

Till then and see you around soon.

It was today, when Pacquiao was in the arena to defend his title against Mosley. And, I was there. Obviously not in Vegas but somewhere in Manila to watch it live. By the time I reached there people had already taken the best seat in the house, but we still managed to get the front row (lol).

Crowd was quite and little did I expect how they would burst out when Pacquiao was introduced. The whole thing makes sense, as he is one of the most adored icon today.

This was my first time to watch Pacquiao fight, and little did I know about him. But it all began with people betting around my table for round KO. It started as early as 4th round, but I somehow was not convinced that a fighter like Mosley will be an easy prey, even considering his worthy adversary. I bet for 12 round decision.

I am sure critics would have cited a few reason why Mosley will win or why Manny will still be the last man standing. To give you a little insight and heads-up on this consider the factors below:

Shane (Sugar) Mosley started his pro career in 1993 with a KO which continued till the 9th match, by 2001 he had an outstanding record of 38-0 (35KO). However he lost his first two matches against Vernon Forest in two consecutive matches. Current record of 46-7-1 (39KO).

Manny Pacquiao, rated as the current #1 Pound for Pound best boxer. With a career records that include an eight-division world champion, the first boxer in history to win ten world titles, the first to win in eight weight divisions, and the first to win the lineal championship in four different weight classes. Named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000’s by BWAA and a three-time The Ring and BWAA “Fighter of the Year”, winning the award in 2006, 2008, and 2009. Current record stands at 53-3-3 (38 KO).

As the bell went off to start the first round, it was Manny who took the pound lead and by 3rd round he had already put Mosley down once. But it seemed that Mosley who was determined to be a worthy opponent by many started to run around and stand his ground to face Manny on many occasions. The fight continued with lack of pounds which many had expected to see and as other had bet for a KO in favor of Manny seemed to decline with every passing round.

By the 10th round, there was an instance when Manny was pushed by Mosley but the referee due to limited field of view favored it in Mosley favor as a knockout attempt. And, expected Manny was offended and took the next round pounding and running into Mosley who tried every attempt to engage Manny.

But it was obvious that Mosley had stepped into the ring to defend as he lacked confidence which was very much clear in the arena. As the bell went of again to end the 12th round every one knew the Manny had won with unanimous decision.

He must have been disappointed not with himself but with the fact that many of his fans couldn’t get the most out of this fight. But if we put its across to you all as simple as possible, that Manny did lead the match even when it was not his very best.

But for Mosley is it time for him to hang his gloves as he did disappoint himself at the end, but the reign of Manny shall continue for a few more year and till date he will and shall wait for a worth opponent to take his stand and engage him for KO.

Till then we shall be meeting again.

Ford’s Mustang goes Green   1 comment


Driving a Ford Mustang is not about style or status, in fact its pride. Having ruled the roads since 1965 when the first generation was launched, and by 2011 they offer you a more advanced and sophisticated driving experience with Mustang.

Ford, a 100-year-old company which has committed not only to improve one’s driving experience but at the same time have also committed for sustainability. Already in its 11th year, they have not only delivered it but also seem to take it more seriously with every passing year.

Commitment towards E2: ecology and economics. This is by improving the standards and the materials that they use during the manufacturing process. Few materials are now made out of recycled waste, which has helped them reduce waste, able to produce affordable alternative solutions and with this they have saved millions of dollars.

As per the recent sustainability report “This is one of the most exciting times in our industry since mass automobile production began more than a century ago. New technologies are radically transforming some of the most fundamental and enduring elements of the automobile. The companies that lead these changes will create new ‘green’ jobs and generate profits while reducing fuel use and CO2 emissions, benefiting both the economy and the environment.” Alan Mulally President and CEO.

For over 10 years, Ford has been continuously focusing on materials to improve vehicle’s life-cycle, as sustainability depends on it. Having introduced recycled materials in the manufacturing process, Ford started using Ecolon since 2010. Ecolon is a nylon based product recycled from carpets. So don’t be surprised to find that the value covers in your Mustang are manufactured from recycled carpets. They also have been able to develop a resin strategy that uses recycled plastic.

With Ford working on a comprehensive model to introduce recycle material to meet the social and environmental demands. The quest doesn’t seem to stop here, as Ford seems to be in pursuit of excellence. By far they have been a role model.

Why I prefer not to write blogs on celebs   6 comments

I have come across many opportunities to blog about celebs. But I never did capitalize on this opportunity. I know I might be missing out on a lot. Who cares?

I have my own reasons to not write about them, the reason being simple. Everyone has a right to dictate their own terms, on how they live their life. Who are we to decide and comment? Humans have an inbuilt tendency which draws them to gossips no matter how much they resist. They may not be the epicenter of such conversation, but there will be someone around them all the time.

Take a simple example, how much will we appreciate on people commenting on our life? If you know the answer then you will agree with me.

Celebs have been the most ought selling point for magazines, every where they go or who they are accompanied by? What they wear? What they do? will always draw media attention. Some factual and some imaginary, the story then builds up.

So in a world where we adore and idolize celebrities, they seem to finally have to come in terms with media.

Unaware of my future blogging experiences that I’m still due to realize, and how long will I try to avoid any blogs around celebrities.
