The Philippines has always been known as a basketball country. But after the recent success of the Philippine football team Azkals, more and more Filipinos are beginning to pay attention to what is called around the world as “the beautiful game.”
ABS-CBN broadcast journalist TJ Manotoc witnessed firsthand how the members and the staff of the Azkals trained and fought hard to reach the semifinals of the international football tournament Suzuki Cup in Indonesia.
Join him this Tuesday (Jan 18) in “Patrol ng Pilipino” as he unveils the different stories of the soldiers, homegrown athletes, and Fil-foreigners who joined forces and showed determination in order to bring glory to the country.
Meanwhile, Manotoc’s fellow reporter Zen Hernandez patrolled in the streets of Mendiola to cover the student-organized rally against the MRT and LRT fare hikes. It is alleged that the highest MRT fee, P15, could shoot up to P25 should the increase be implemented.
Hernandez raked the South Luzon Expressway and flocks MRT and LRT stations to get the pulse of the masses. How will it affect them in the daily? Will they hold the government to its promise of improved transit services?
