Congratulations to Manny Pacquiao for beating Oscar de la Hoya! Also, Congratulations to Art Valdez for the launch of his Mt. Everest Book entitled "Live the Dream! The Saga of the Philippine Mount Everest Expedition Team Book "


This Everest Book should be in every Filipino household to inspire the next generation of Young Filipinos that nothing is impossible for us, Filipinos! The Everest book sells for P2,000. Please email me if you want to buy a copy.


It was very inspiring to meet the people the Philippine Mount Everest Team!


Art Valdez also announced his latest project of building the legendary Balangay to sail around the Philippines in 2009! I will do a separate blog post about the "Voyage of the Balangay" project.


On a personal note, my wife and I have finally survived all the white water rafting adventures in Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Tuguegarao, and Kalinga! We survived two Class 4 white water in Kalinga! Thanks to Anton Carag for an awesome weekend!
