MANILA, Philippines—Ara Mina is probably the only Filipina who didn’t watch Pacquiao’s match with De La Hoya. “Masyado akong naapektuhan sa intriga about Manny and me before,” said Ara. “Kaya as much as possible umiiwas ako pag-usapan siya.
Graduation ko sa advanced leadership course the day ’nung laban niya that’s why di ko napanood.”
Did she congratulate Pacman or greet him on his birthday? “I don’t have his number,” she said. “So please greet him na lang for me through your column (laughs).”
It’s not Pacquiao who has knocked out her heart but a dashing 29-year-old Chinoy businessman. “He’s not yet my BF but we’re getting there.”
Ara’s heart has come a long, hard way. Looks like it’s almost home.
