One of my dreams happening: 'Pac-man' wins over 'The Golden Boy' in 2008

A showdown was in the offing.

A bout between a son of a small torn nation and a son of a great one land.

As it neared, seven thousand and more islands trembled. And fifty and more States triumphed at the coming event of the clash.

A fight of fists of a David and a Goliath! Of island-born "Pac-Man" and mainland-born "The Golden Boy!"

I, too, am a son of islands and seas and I began to do something for a brother -- daily, I prayed; daily Masses, I heard.

And on the seventh day, a vision came to me in a dream.

A clean and fresh-faced, a fair and pinkish-skinned, a smiling and chinky-eyed, a focused and faith-oozing Manny Pacquiao!

Seven more days and the fight would begin.

And so the fight was on.

And the rest is history -- his story.

Seven and one rounds were more than enough proof.

And a towel fell from the camp of the giant, Oscar De La Hoya!
