That is not the end of it, he said. There’s more to come, the government having earmarked P4 billion for them under the Grassroots Participatory Budget Process, a new program.

Mommy D’s magic

By

You’ve got to love Dionisia Pacquiao! Reports have it that the Pacman’s mother—the PacMom herself—garnered as much attention in the social media as her son during the televised coverage of Manny Pacquiao’s domination of Timothy Bradley in their championship fight.
