Coco Martin used to drive a tricycle for his school allowance

Kapamilya superstar Coco Martin, with his staggering net worth, now lives in a villa-like residence and owns luxurious cars. But there was a time when he used to drive a tricycle so he could have an allowance to spend in school. "Napakalaking part ng buhay ko ng pagmo-motor," he said in his contract signing for a brand endorsement Saturday. [Driving a motorbike has been a big part of my life.] "Nung college po ako, dahil alam naman ng lahat na di kami laking mayaman, talagang nung araw po ay nagsusumikap lang po kami sa buhay.

PVL: Guino-o steps up for FEU this time in win over UP

Far Eastern University is slowly moving on into a new era without the talismanic Bernadeth Pons and the Lady Tamaraws have found their platform in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference. The offseason tournament has become some sort of testing ground for the teams before the start of the UAAP season and the Lady Tamaraws have used that opportunity to work on their system. No one player has stood out as its undisputed leader for FEU, just what Pons has done in the past, but the team saw several players don the leader's cap almost every game. Celine Domingo had that distinction in FEU's previous five-set win when she had 18 points over University of Perpetual Help...Keep on reading: PVL: Guino-o steps up for FEU this time in win over UP.....»»

‘Hungry’ Durham has ‘nothing left to prove’ but lead Bolts to PBA title

Is the third time going to be the charm for Allen Durham? Well, the Meralco big man thinks so. Durham has won the Best Import award the past two PBA Governors' Cups, but those individual awards didn't result to titles. The Bolts were booted out of the finals twice and against just one enemy in Barangay Ginebra, but Durham is hellbent that his third stint with the Bolts is the time they will finally exorcize their demons. "Personally, I have nothing to prove," said Durham after their 109-106 opening day win over Columbian Friday at Ynares Center in Antipolo. "I think we need a championship." "It's all about the team right now, I don't have anything to prove. You guys see me play, I...Keep on reading: ‘Hungry’ Durham has ‘nothing left to prove’ but lead Bolts to PBA title.....»»

Neil Etheridge saves Kenedy’s last-gasp penalty after Hayden sees red

Neil Etheridge was Cardiff's hero as the goalkeeper saved a last-gasp penalty from Kenedy to salvage a 0-0 draw against 10-man Newcastle on Saturday. Rafael Benitez's side were reduced to 10 men in the 66th minute when half-time substitute Isaac Hayden was sent off for an ugly foul on Josh Murphy. But it was Newcastle who had the best chance to claim a first Premier League win this season despite their numerical disadvantage. However, on-loan Chelsea midfielder Kenedy wasted the opportunity as his weak penalty in the 96th minute was easily saved by Etheridge. Kenedy's blunder capped a frustrating afternoon for Newcastle, whose travelling fans once again protested at the lack of inv...Keep on reading: Neil Etheridge saves Kenedy’s last-gasp penalty after Hayden sees red.....»»

JAKARTA, Indonesia --- Sun Yang has the international profile, three Olympic gold medals, and he'll compete in the first of the men's events in the pool on the first day of medal competition at the Asian Games. But there's one thing he's not likely to win on Sunday.

Bigwigs pull the plug on noisy celeb’s campaign

Seems Bodacious Celebrity is hell-bent on milking every ounce of notoriety from a dubious venture. Wily Bigwigs sensed BC's nefarious plan to upstage everyone, including major stars, and swiftly pulled the plug on the scheme.

How Diego changed from cocky to cool racer

  Actor Diego Loyzaga was the first to admit that he could be a tad "wild" on the racetrack. So when Diego was tapped to join the third season of History Channel's reality racing tilt "Celebrity Car Wars," not a few observers pointed out that he had his work cut out for him. Diego recounted that host Bobby Tonelli had dismissed him, at the start of the competition, as "very cocky, obnoxious, a typical 20-year-old with a heavy foot, who was always in a rush." Diego owned up: "I was a leadfoot. I just wanted to go fast all the time." But as the show progressed, Diego related, the host had noticed marked changes in the young man-in-a-hurry.
