My touching post on Facebook


The Philippines is asking for your help?

For Filipinos...

It is the same country that raised your parents and grandparents.

The same country that taught your family its values.

The same country that opens its arms to you everytime you come home.

The same country that gave you a public identity.

Sadly, it is same country that is crying in pain right now...

Ana Julaton Open-Workout

Ana Julaton fights her idol on Sept. 12

Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton is set to be ready for her IBA Super Bantamweight World Title Fight against boxing veteran Kelsey “Road Warrior” Jeffries at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, on September 12.

Julaton (4-1-1), who is planning to bounce back after losing by split decision to Dominga Olivo back in August of last year, got her first ever main event fight with Jeffries (41-9-1) after the match between her and Melissa Hernandez failed to go through.

“I’ve never expected it to come out like this,” said Julaton, who happened to be a fan of Jeffries. “I’m still trying to digest the whole thing.”

Despite the respect for Jefferies, Julaton is confident she can win the fight and claim the title belt.

Arvin Jugarap, the chief executive officer at the Kennel Boxing Gym and co-trainer of Julaton, said they are taking the match seriously.

“We’re not taking her (Jefferies) lightly at all,” said Jugarap, who trains Julaton along with his uncle Nonito Donaire Sr.

Julaton started working out with Jugarap and Donaire at the Kennel Boxing Gym in San Leandro four months ago after training at the Wild Card Gym with Freddie Roach, Manny Paquiao’s trainer.

Upon her arrival at the gym, Julaton had to quickly learn the “Donaire System”, a “more tactical”, “elusive”, in and out fighting style that focuses more on hard punching than the previous styles she experienced Jugarap said.

“I love the fact that she’s been able to adapt to our style,” he said. “She is a quick learner.”

Jugarap said Julaton works out twice a day to come prepared for her 10-round fight against Jeffries.

“I push her as hard as I push the guys,” he said about Julaton’s training.

During her public workout at the Kennel Boxing Gym on August 28, Julaton had a 10-round sparring workout with three opponents, including four rounds with male boxer while only taking short 30 second breaks between each round.

“I told her when she comes in this gym, she is not a girl; she’s a fighter,” said Jugarap. “That is why I have her sparring with guys.”

He said he is glad that she does not complain because he pushes her too hard.

“I’m happy of how she is coming along,” he said.

Jc Enerio, Julaton’s male sparring partner during the open workout, complimented her power, combinations, speed, and toughness.

“I hit her with a couple of good shots; she’s taken them,” he said. “She did great.”

Enerio, who sparred with Julaton for roughly three months, noted that she has gotten stronger.

Tatiana Almaraz, Julaton’s other sparring partner during the open workout, said she also felt Julaton’s power.

“She is getting stronger and stronger,” she said. “I can feel her power; she is getting a lot better and faster.”

Jugarap was also impressed with Julaton’s performance during the open workout.

“She used a lot of her reach,” he said. “She was really looking for her openings.”

Jugarap said he is not worried about Julaton’s punching ability during her fight against Jeffries.

He mentioned that they are currently strengthening her legs so she can have better foot work and mobility during the fight.

“At Kennel Boxing, I feel fortunate that they treat me more like a fighter and not a girl,” Julaton said.

Julaton said she is going to be physically and mentally prepared for her upcoming fight.

She said that she is excited for the match because this is the first time all her relatives will come and watch her fight.

Julaton, a Daly City native and a teacher at Westwind karate schools in Berkeley, said she was inspired by Pacquiao and has been very proud to be Filipino.

She said she plans to go to the Philippines one day and help the nation’s boxing program there.

“We’d love to have all the fans in the bay come out, especially the female fans,” Jugarap said about Julaton’s upcoming main event title fight. “We will definitely be ready September 12.”

Sana by Up Dharma Down

Nilibot na ang buong mundo
Di pa rin ako nakukuntento
Makakahanap ng ipapalit
Nang walang babala
Lumipas ay nagbabalik pala

Nalilito na ako hindi na dapat gan'to
Nakaraan ay natapos at napagdaanan na
Bakit na sisindak pa sa t'wing naaalala
Matatauhan na wala ka na pala

Ako sila'y nandito na
Ikaw na lang ang kulang
Anong lunod o lalim ba't 'di na lang lumutang
Anong pait ang matamis at aking susubukan
Anong silbi ng narito
'Di mo na kailangan

Hindi nga nagtagal ang pagpapanggap na 'to
Kaliwa at kanan harap at likod ano mang anggulo
Titigan ay bumibigay ako

Damdamin ay kay bigat
Naisip na ang lahat
Wala na ba talaga akong magagawa pa

Ako sila'y nandito na
Ikaw na lang ang kulang
Anong lunod o lalim ba't 'di na lang lumutang
Anong tamis ang mapait at aking iiwasan
Walang silbi ang narito
'Di mo na kailangan

Wala na bang makakapantay at di na ba dapat pang maghintay
Ako lang ba ang nagkasala?
Kumakapit sa natitirang sana.

Kung babalik ka pa hanggang kailan kaya?
Ako dito mag aabang na magdutong na ang patlang
Ang kulang ay mapupunan wala nang makahahadlang
Wala na yatang hihigit sa pangungulila ko
Iba na bang nagbibigay ng mga kailangan mo?

Oh sana
Kay higpit ng kapit sa unan kagabi ko
Oh sana
Inaasam muling makatabi at mahalik sana

And for people who want to know... the girl in the pink is Jessica Mendoza from Magic 89.9.

GREAT SONG and Concept Video!!!
