Manny Pacquiao cried.
He may be the world's best boxer to date.
He may have toppled the likes of Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton and Juan Manuel Marquez.
He may have mansions in the Philippines and abroad but Filipino boxing champion and Sarangani Congressman Manny Pacquiao recently cried.
Manny Pacquiao cried because he can't join the Sarangani Bay Festival 2012.
My fellow Mindanaoan Manny Pacquiao will have to sit out on this year's SarBay Fest and because of this, he cried.

Sarangani Province in Mindanao, Philippines has always fascinated me. First, because it's a haven of rich Filipino culture. Second, because it seems to be a great location for photography enthusiasts like myself. Third, because it has a lot of activities for tourists and fourth, because a former classmate of mine has successfully turned this Mindanao province into one of the busiest and most colorful places in the Philippines. Yup, I'm talking about incumbent Sarangani Governor Miguel Rene Dominguez.
Today, Sarangani is no longer considered just as "that area you pass through" when you traverse the General Santos City - Davao City highway. It's now a tourism and business hub and a place that you really must visit whenever you're in SOCCSKSARGEN. If only you need to take a quick peek at ...
If there is one thing I can never pull off, then that is to wear a two piece bikini and strut my stuff along the catwalk.

Sabagay, who wouldn't want to flaunt their assets if you have bodies like these two?
These are the previous winners of the Sarangani Bay Bodies contest - one of the much-awaited events during the Sarangani Bay Festival in Sarangani, Mindanao, Philippines.
Cute muscled guy - check! Pretty sexy lady - check!
And guess what? You'll see more toned bodies this year during the 2011 Sarangani Bay Bodies event!

My former classmate and now Sarangani Governor Miguel Rene Dominguez, along with Vice Governor Steve Solon, will also be around and about for sure.
