Manny Pacquiao, with all his fame, fortune, and achievements, is by far the athlete any Filipino would want to emulate. Even fans of billiards superstars Efren “Bata” Reyes, Francisco Bustamante, and Dennis Orcullo dream about duplicating his success.
However, our sports stars themselves would reveal it wasn’t that easy to get to the top. It takes hard work, skill, talent, and sometimes, also luck. TJ Manotoc will prove this true this Tuesday (Dec 14) in “Patrol ng Pilipino” as he enters the world of young billiards players.
Find out how the new blood in billiards deals with the culture of gambling in the sport, and how much of their heart and soul they give in every break. Meanwhile, Gretchen Malalad will roam the streets of Manila to document that different gimmicks of young beggars this Christmas Season.
Recently, the Department of Social Welfare and Development banned the caroling of kids in streets saying it would be dangerous for children to be running and staying in thoroughfares. Others, meanwhile, believe this rule takes away the opportunity for the kids to enjoy the spirit of giving.
Join TJ Manotoc and Gretchen Malalad this Tuesday (Dec 14), after “Bandila” on ABS-CBN.
