One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Manny Pacquiao Makes History with Miguel Cotto TKO!

What a win! Pacquiao adds to his legacy! Very fitting as Manny Pacquiao comes out and enters the event hall packed full of Filipino fans as well as Puerto Rican fans at the MGM to one of my all time favorites, “Eye of the Tiger”. Very much like the fictional character, Rocky, who’s loved by the mass as the people’s champion. And the fact that he’s always sporting a smile seems to be an obvious trademark that many have grown to love.

Now that the man has won his seventh belt in seven divisions, what is next? Well, as stated, he has a concert to do right after the fight with his band from the Philippines. CRAZY! As it should be, “Work Hard, Play Hard”. Vacation with his family and friends is also in the mix.

But what many others want to know, such as myself, what about Floyd Mayweather? We’ll see… As much as I want to see this, I personally don’t see it as Mayweather seems to cherry picks his opponents and uses money/contract disputes as excuses.

Again, Manny Pacquiao TKO Miguel Cotto in the 12th round as the ref steps in to stop the fight. Pacquiao wins by TKO!

In the meantime, I’m waiting for that next fight of the century. Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather!

Today: Pacquiao vs. Cotto

Pacquiao vs. Cotto – November 14, 2009

Today’s the day! When Manny Pacquiao takes on Miguel Cotto to face off for the World Welterweight Championship on November 14, 2009! My pick, Pacquiao by late knock-out around the 9 round mark or it may go the distant by unanimous decision. Either way, Manny Pacquiao will win…

Mom’s Home Cooked Filipino Spaghetti

Went digging through my photo archives and came across a photo I took of my mom’s home cooked Filipino style spaghetti.

 Mom’s Home Cooked Filipino Spaghetti!

Filipino spaghetti you say?!? That’s right, not your typical Italian spaghetti, but a much sweeter version of it with hotdogs. I know you must be thinking that sliced hotdogs in your spaghetti is crazy, but you got to try it before you knock it. Because just about everyone that’s given it a shot, love them.

One of a few major differences between the two is the sweetness, as mentioned above. And that’s because of the added ingredient of the Jufran Banana Sauce that can be found at any Filipino or Asian marketplace. Even though the use of Jufran is a critical component to the dish, my mom’s recipe doesn’t include it. She substitutes it with sugar instead…

 Mom’s Home Cooked Filipino Spaghetti!

Then there is the hotdog. It’s another major difference between the two. My household uses regular plain hotdogs that you find at any marketplace/grocery store. But, I’ve seen other types of sausages being used in other people’s recipes…

I know it’s not a true representation of the Filipino spaghetti. I like to call it a hybrid of sorts. It’s a compromise of the traditional Italian version and the Filipino version.

Happy eating!!!
