One Heart for the Elephants of Bali

Following a recent visit to the Mason Elephant Safari Park in Taro, Bali, Indonesia, I became curious about how the pachyderms ever got to Indonesia, believing elephants in South East Asia only existed in Indochina, most prominently in Thailand. What I found after surfing the internet piqued my curiosity even more. It seems there once came to Southern Philippines a prince from a Minangkabau kingdom in Sumatra, Indonesia called Pagaruyung (Baguinda is a Minangkabau honorific for prince.) He became the leader of what eventually became the Sultanate of Sulu......»»

Championship triple-header highlights Pinoy Pride 45 in November

Filipino boxing fans are in for a treat this November as ALA Promotions' Pinoy Pride returns with an exciting championship triple-header on deck for Pinoy Pride 45 in Cebu City.  Headlining the card will be a WBO Oriental Super Bantamweight Championship bout between defending champion Jeo "Santino" Santisima of Masbate and Mexican Victor Uriel “Yuca” Lopez. Regared as one of ALA Promotions’ fastest rising stars, the 22-year old Santisima (16-2, 14 KO) is unbeaten since 2014 and is riding a remarkable 14-fight winning streak. Santisima captured his first championship back in June of 2018 with a third-round TKO victory over Likit Chane to claim the WBO Oriental Super Bantamweight title. Looking to make Santisima’s title reign a short one is Mexico City’s Lopez (13-6-1, 6 KO), who’s won six of his last seven contests. The current reigning WBC Latino Super Bantamweight Interim Champion, Lopez is looking to add the WBO Oriental title to his list of accolades. Also on the card, the blonde-haired bomber himself, “Prince” Albert Pagara of Maasin, Southern Leyte will be making his return to the ring to defend his WBO Inter-Continental Super Bantamweight Championship against Ghanaian George Krampah. The hard-hitting Pagara (30-1, 21 KO) is working his way back up to the top of the super bantamweight ranks, and is currently on a solid four-fight winning streak. In his last outing, the 24-year old reclaimed the WBO Inter-Continental Super Bantamweight crown with a three-round destruction of Laryea Gabriel Odoi in his hometown of Maasin. Looking to avenge his fellow-Ghanaian is Krampah (14-3, 12 KO), who will be making his Philippine boxing debut. A former Ghanaian Featherweight Champion and WBO Africa Featherweight Championship contender, Krampah will try to bring the WBO Inter-Continental title back home to Accra. In a featured super flyweight contest, ALA Promotions star prospect Kevin Jake “KJ” Cataraja gets his first shot at a championship when he meets Mexican Victor Hugo “Scarface” Reyes for the vacant WBO World Youth Super Flyweight Championship. One of the most promising young talents on the ALA Promotions roster of boxers, the 23-year old Cataraja (8-0-0, 7 KO) has the potential to be one of the promotion’s most exciting young fighters. A proven knockout artist with seven of his eight wins coming via KO or TKO, the former Palarong Pambansa and amateur standout gets his first shot at a professional championship. Standing in Cataraja’s way is a fellow young stud in Tijuana’s Reyes (9-1-1, 7 KO). Possessing an almost-equally impressive KO ratio as his Filipino counterpart, Reyes has won his last two contests, and is also looking for his first taste of boxing gold. Pinoy Pride 45 will emanate from the IEC Convention Center in Cebu City on Saturday, November 24th. Catch the telecast on ABS-CBN channel 2 and ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

NCAA Season 94: Altas near last semis seat

University of Perpetual Help secured at least a playoff for the last Final Four berth in the NCAA Season 94 seniors basketball competition after an 81–67 win over Emilio Aguinaldo College on Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Altas won their sixth straight win to improve to 11-5 win-loss record and tighten their grip at the fourth spot.

Kim Aurin finished with a personal-best 26 points, Prince Eze got 14 markers and pulled down 16 rebounds while Jelo Razon got 11 points for the Las Pinas-based squad. Perpetual broke open the game with a huge third quarter push after heading into halftime with just a 37-35 lead. “We struggled a bit nu’ng the first half. Medyo tight ang mga bata, gusto tambakan agad. Pero normally sa mga games na ganito, yun ang inaasahan mong mangyari,” said Altas coach Frankie Lim. “Buti na lang nag-settle down.” “We had a strong third. We outscored them by 10 points in the third. Mas maganda ang flow ng opensa namin (sa second half),” he added. The Altas opened the third with a 15-2 start and outscored the Generals, 24-14, in the canto to control the game. The Generals lost its center Hamadou Laminou with just 22.6 seconds remaining and EAC trailing, 61-47, with a cut on his left eye. The center slammed his head on the floor after losing his balance on a turnaround and Perpetual’s Jerome Pasia landing on the back of Laminou’s head. Without their leading scorer and main man inside the paint, the Generals struggled and fell to 4-13 card. Laminou finished with 17 points, Jethro Mendoza also had 17 markers while JP Magullano got 10 points and 10 boards in a lost cause for the Generals.   Box score: Perpetual (81) --- Aurin 26, Eze 14, Razon 11, Coronel 8, Jimenez 8, Peralta 5, Charcos 4, Mangalino 3, Pasia 2, Cuevas 0, Sese 0, Tamayo 0.
