Philippines on WCG Asian Championship 2008

All eyes were pinned on the DotA (Defense of the Ancients) team but Team Mineski failed to bring home the bacon for the Philippines. With a dismal finish and a far cry from the bronze medal that Team Flow won back in WCG Asia 07, the Philippine delegation seemed lost at that very moment.
But thankfully, someone shone for Team Philippines and that was none other than Luis Benesa.
An 18 year old kid from the Ateneo de Manila University, he made the Philippines proud by winning silver on the Guitar Hero event.
All hopes are now pinned on the WCG Philippine leg champion Rafael Formoso for the same event in the WCG Finals at Germany this November.

Obama means hope in Tagalog

Chris Cabaldon, a six term mayor West Sacramento has Filipino American roots. And at a rally, he proclaimed, “In Tagalog, ‘Obama’ Means Hope.”
Silence soon followed afterwards.
With Tagalog as one of the most dynamic dialects in the world, this could probably become true.

You may think that what happens in the US, does not affect the Philippines.
Sorry to break your bubble but YES it does!

The Filipinos and the rest of the world needs an American leader that knows how to make this world a relatively better place.
We do not need another American president who only knows how to go to war.

American policies greatly affect what happens to the rest of the world.
Let me cite the reasons why Barack Obama, an African American candidate deserves the Filipino-American vote.

He co-sponsored the Filipino Veterans Equity Act, he passed a law in Illinois to combat racial profiling and Obama has been paving the way for immigration reforms.

Now tell me, what does John McCain have over Barack Obama?

Kaya Natin!
