On the newest vlog of Karen Davila on her YouTube account, she did a house tour on the humble abode of Manny Pacquiao, the National Icon and World Boxing Champ.
Karen asked Pacquiao that despite him being known as a senator and national hero, how did he become the pillar of the home for his family and how did he change for good.
“Noong araw, wala akong pakilam. I did not care about my family tapos barkada, inuman, sugal, babae, lahat. Ngayon, nawala na ‘yung mga vices na ‘yun. May time na ako sa pamilya. Sabao at lingo, bonding kami lahat.
I pray every day. I pray that I believe God, but what I am doing is contradict doon sa paniniwala ko: pag-iinom, pagbabae, lahat mga vices. Sabi ko, ginagawa ko ‘yun. Tapos sinasabi ko naniniwala ako sa Panginoon. How come I believe God and doing these things?” Manny shared how his faith in God has changed him to turn back against the wrongful acts he has been committing.
Even in his movie biopic, Pacquiao did not deny that he is a womanizer, it was even shown on the said film.
Manny Pacquiao started his career at boxing at the age of 12. He had a humble beginning as an amateur boxing athlete to provide for his family. Through hard work and perseverance, he became world-famous after gaining more weight classes than any other boxer in the history of boxing.
Now, he is a senator and a loving father to his family.
