  1. Congratulation to Mayweather and all the winners.
    I wonder what are the criteria to bag this award. Maybe it has something to do with the popularity rin talaga. Naiisip ko lang :-)

  2. Hi Yen,
    Ganun naman ang mga Amerikano. They dislike other people especially Asians and would love to lift up their own even if their own is so full of hot air and is a humbug. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
