Wow. Early this morning I got a surprise call on my cell phone. When I answered its somebody that I don’t know. She must be one of the people that I gave my business card to. I asked her what she wants? She said that if I could ask Manny Pacman Pacquiao to recommend her daughter for a job in the Bureau of Customs. My goodness, I can’t recommend somebody I don’t know in the first place. Also I don’t know Manny in personally. We have many common friends but I won’t ask them to help me go to Manny. Thats just not right.
I would not ask somebody that I don’t know to recommend me for a job. Just because he is famous he can give you the job already? I don’t think so. It’s just shocking to me that people think that Manny can recommend everybody. I am sure Pacman also wants to know the people he recommend for the job. I should have told that person to let her daughter work at Pacman’s businesses in GenSan. Maybe when Manny knows the daughter well, he can already recommend her. If she does really well in his company though. The good thing about Manny is he really tried his best to help the people of GenSan. He tried to help some of the typhoon victims also in Luzon. I think he tried really to be a good man.
Honestly I would never ask somebody a favor just because he is famous. I think you guys already know that Manny just got here in the Philippines a few days ago from the States after winning the fight against the Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya. Before the fight he stayed in the US for quiet sometime to do the training. He really went there and back here to see his family. I think 2 months before the fight his wife went to the States to be with him. The decided that she will have the baby there. He just came back here to get his other kids before the wife gives birth. Of course he will attend a lot of victory parties in GenSan and Manila before heading back to the States. During his fight last week I saw that the streets here in Davao was almost empty, its like a ghost almost. People were really hooked to the TV. It was really good seeing him beat Oscar though. Before I was not a boxing fan, but now with Manny fighting I found myself watching the TV and cheering for him. Oh well he fights good always though. He was really the Hero of a lot of the youngsters here in the Philippines. It’s really good that the kids look up to him. The good thing I never heard him used some illegal substance. I hope he will continue being the successful boxer and a good real model to the young one. And good luck to him.
To the person that called to me. Sorry I can’t help you on this matter. I hope you understand. Just find other ways to let your daughter find a job. I hope you don’t wait for Manny on that. Good luck to you and your daughter.
