Allan Caidic steals show in San Miguel-Alaska PBA Legends game

"The Triggerman" is still locked and loaded. After all these years, Allan Caidic can still shoot the lights out and he shot San Miguel Beer past Alaska, 96-83, in the PBA Legends: Return of the Rivals charity event Sunday before a packed Araneta Coliseum crowd. "It feels great. But more than the result and the game you watched, it's the solidarity of the players. We came together for a good cause," Caidic, who played for the Beermen from 1993 to 1998, said. Caidic, who turns 56 in June, started slow before heating up as the game went on to finish with a game-high 26 points on 6-of-14 shooting from downtown. He fired 16 points in a back and forth final frame alone. The crowd, fully ...Keep on reading: Allan Caidic steals show in San Miguel-Alaska PBA Legends game.....»»

Townsfolk object to coastal road construction in Surigao del Sur

LIANGA, Surigao del Sur --- Hundreds of residents of this sleepy seaside town have been opposing the construction of a 2.79-kilometer bypass and diversion coastal road, which they fear will destroy at least 30 hectares of mangrove forest. The residents, mostly Catholic parishioners, sent a petition on Dec. 20, 2018, to the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), but so far Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu has not acted on it. "Why pursue a coastal highway project that would entail ahuge amount of money and would destroy our rehabilitated mangrove ecosystem that would serve as a precious tourism showcase of Lianga?" the petitioners asked.

UST’s Cherry Rondina grateful to get much-needed help from Eya Laure, Milena Alessandrini

MANILA, Philippines---Gone are the days where Cherry Rondina would carry University of Santo Tomas solely on her shoulders. Rondina was almost a one-person army during the UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball tournament when she had to lift the Golden Tigresses and in a herculean effort that resulted into just four wins against 10 losses in the year. This time, though, Rondina has star rookie Eya Laure and a healthy Milena Alessandrini, Season 80's Rookie of the Year, in UST's campaign in Season 81. Rondina admitted that her responsibility lightened up a bit with the addition of Laure and the return of Alessandrini, who missed four games in 2018 due to an injury. And her wor...Keep on reading: UST’s Cherry Rondina grateful to get much-needed help from Eya Laure, Milena Alessandrini.....»»

Fatherhood becomes Mike Tan

If there was one good thing about working long, unpredictable hours during tapings, Mike Tan said, it's that it unwittingly prepared him for all the sleepless nights that come with being a parent to a newborn baby. Mike and his nonshow biz wife welcomed their firstborn, a baby girl, last November. "I have no issues staying awake in the wee hours of the night, because I'm already used to it," he told the Inquirer at a recent press conference for GMA 7's new fantasy series, "Kara Mia." The Kapuso talent described himself as a "very hands-on father," who enjoys tending to his baby. "I feed her, change her diapers and put her to sleep," he said.

UAAP 81 Football: UST demolishes DLSU on opening day

Season 80 runners up University of Santo Tomas wasted no time in getting on the board, as the Growling Tigers demolished De La Salle University, 3-1 on opening day of the UAAP Season 81 Men's Football Tournament, Sunday afternoon at the FEU-FERN Football Field in Diliman, Quezon City.  Armed with 13 rookies, the Green Archers were looking to make a statement early in the season, and early in the match, it looked like they were primed for a big win after one of those new faces, John Rey Lagura, connected on his first UAAP goal to put DLSU ahead, 1-0 in the 14th minute.  The Green Archer advantage didn't last too long, as Conrad Dimacali responded in the 17th minute to help the Growling Tigers pull even  UST moved into the driver's seat heading into the midgame break, thanks to a 36th minute conversion from Juan Villanueva to make it 2-1.  Action picked up in the second half, as De La Salle looked to rally back, but instead it was UST who found the back of the net once again, with rookie Glen Ramos also hitting his first UAAP goal to put the Growling Tigers ahead, 3-1.  DLSU attempted once last push, but yielded no results, as UST coasted to a big opening day victory.  "Every tournament, especially sa UAAP, mas maganda talaga na makakuha ka kaagad ng three points, pero nag-start kami kanina na masiyadong mababa yung laro namin, medyo yung fitness namin, hindi kami makahawak ng bola," explained UST head coach Marjo Allado after the match. "La Salle is very dangerous in transitions, and buti na lang, yung dalawang free kicks namin, na-convert namin kanina."  "So far, it's a good result for the UST Men's Team sa opening game," Allado added.  While it was a big win, Allado isn't completely happy with the result, noting that he felt his boys were a bit off.  "Naka-score kami ng three goals, pero my concern is yung laro namin kanina, this is not how we play eh. Siguro first game, parang naninibago lang yung mga players, especially yung ibang rookies."  UST opens the season with a win and three points. .....»»
