Team KiefLy crushes first beach volleyball stint together in BVR

Philippine sports power couple Alyssa Valdez and Kiefer Ravena hit the sandcourts together for the first time in the celebrity match of the Beach Volleyball Republic December Open Sunday at the Sands SM by the Bay. They took home a close 23-21 victory in the one set exhibition match versus Charo Soriano and John Vic De Guzman. KiefLy wins the match, 23-21! @abscbnsports #BVRDecemberOpen pic.twitter.com/HS7al1QrCl — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) December 16, 2018 Both duos put on a fun show for the fans in attendance as they gave an impromptu dance number before the game. The match itself was also not short of entertaining moments especially when Ravena who is known for being a crafty point guard in the basketball court produced most of the points in the sands. "Nakita naman natin na si Kiefer yung player of the game talaga. Service aces, blocks, and mga spikes," quipped former Ateneo beach volleyball player Valdez. This is Ravena's first time to play beach volleyball competitively and it was made more special because it was with beau Valdez. "Beach volleyball is very underestimated, I never thought it would really be this hard. Of course, we play it for fun every time we're on the beach with family but competitively, it's really different," said the sidelined NLEX Road Warrior after the fun game. "I enjoyed it especially playing with my girlfriend, Alyssa, who's really a beach volleyball player, it was nice to pull up a win tonight kahit nag-eenjoy lang din kami," added Ravena. Both shared that they did not do any solid preparation for the exhibition game in order to just enjoy the moment. "Before going here, nanonood na kami ng highlights ng beach volleyball kasi we never trained together," shared the five-time PVL MVP. "We wanted to come out as unprepared as possible to really enjoy it na lang," added the PBA standout. The Phenom's game versus Soriano and De Guzman is also for a good cause. The proceeds of the event will be donated to Mindanao State College of Sports, Physical Education, and Recreation Academy in Marawi City. "It was nice that I played for the BVR family. It's for a cause and it's one great experience especially knowing you're helping a lot of people," said Ravena.  .....»»

ABL: Balkman, Alab Pilipinas still too hot to handle for Indonesia

Alab Pilipinas put on a show against CLS to commence their campaign in the 2018-2019 Asean Basketball League. On Sunday inside the GOR CLS in Surabaya, Indonesia, it was an encore performance for the Filipinos as they invaded the home stage of the Knights with a gutsy 88-80 decision in overtime. The Puerto Rican pair of Renaldo Balkman and PJ Ramos was still a problem for the Indonesians as the former finished with 36 points and 12 rebounds and the latter ended with a 25-marker, 11-board double-double. Just hours after knowing he had been picked second overall in the 2018 PBA Draft, Ray Parks Jr. contributed 10 points, three rebounds, and two assists to help the Philippines go streaking with two wins in a row to open its title defense. Unlike the last time the two teams met a week ago, Alab had to work for the win. They only had a two-point edge, 75-73, with 37 ticks to go before Wong Wei Long willed a layup through all of Ethan Alvano, Balkman, and Ramos to tie the tally. Neither side would score from there and the game went into overtime. There, Balkman continued working and, by his lonesome, outscored all of their opponents, 8-5. Parks Jr. and Caelan Tiongson also had timely contributions in the extra period as the Filipinos evaded the upset ax. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Massacre or fight for freedom? Putting the Balangiga bells in context

To a generation inseparable from their mobile phones, church bells are a jurassic way of telling time. Children of the digital age cannot even imagine a period when church bells rang to mark the progress of a day.   Sleep and darkness were broken by the sound of bells calling the faithful to morning prayer and Mass, that sounded at noon to signal midday, knelled at six in the evening to hurry people home, and brought people to their knees to pray the Angelus.   Depending on the way the bells tolled, people knew that someone had died, Mass was about to start, or Mass was at consecration.   Bells also pealed to signal help, to quell a fire, to signal st...Keep on reading: Massacre or fight for freedom?

Noel (Ferrer) works for Christmas–why?

Noel Ferrer was supposed to be born Dec. 25, but Christmas came two weeks early for his parents. They kept the name anyway, which might explain Ferrer's special affinity for the holiday season.   The veteran producer and talent manager, who hosts the teleradyo show, "Level Up," on Radyo Inquirer, among other things, draws his inspiration from a poem by Howard Thurman, "The Work of Christmas":   "When the song of the angels is stilled/ When the star in the sky is gone/ When the kings and princes are home/ When the shepherds are back with their flock/ The work of Christmas begins..."   Ferrer takes the work to mean "to find the lost, to heal the broken,...Keep on reading: Noel (Ferrer) works for Christmas–why?.....»»

Samar town’s cheer, bells’ peal warm PH-US relations

BALANGIGA, Easter Samar --- President Rodrigo Duterte on Saturday credited both the Philippines and the United States for the return of the Balangiga bells to their rightful home in Eastern Samar, and said the historic event meant renewed and more vibrant ties between the two allies.   The sleepy town of Balangiga erupted in joy as the President later kissed one of the iconic bells and rung it seven times.   The President has had a testy relationship with the United States, often lashing out at the Philippines' longest defense ally for its criticism of his war on drugs and human rights record while cozying up to China.   After taking office in July 20...Keep on reading: Samar town’s cheer, bells’ peal warm PH-US relations.....»»
