Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

All mothers are exceptionally great, though at times they vary in ways of showing it. I'd like to greet and laud all mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day to every mothers of every nation and region.

And to this very moment, I'll make a tribute for my wonderful mother, Happy Mothers Day, Mama and We love you so much. If God is the Maker, you are the Molder, without your guidance, love and sacrifice we are not who we are right now.

Make this day truly a Mother's Day for your Mom. Here are tips and suggestions how to celebrate:

1. Be creative

Being creative is not about grand presentation but the sincere effort that really counts. Do a hand-made card, compose a song or poem for your mom, make a video in tribute of your mom or anything unique you can think of. Think of something uniquely plan or hand crafted of the whole family.

2. Treat and Surprise your mother

Every queen deserves a royal treat and your mom is the sole queen in your home, so she deserves a royal treat as well. Why don't you start with a breakfast in bed complemented with flower or rose. Bake some cookies or cake or give a mother's day gift.

If you're not at home, fly back home, she will be surprised and be very glad of the effort you did of going home. You are her child, thus you know your mom very well, you have the idea what can utterly surprise her.

Your mother is worthy of your treat and this Mother's Day they deserve a special treat and fabulous surprise because they are number ONE.

3. Most importantly your words of love and thanks, your actions of hugs annd kisses.

Complete your mom's day with hugs and kisses. Say " I LOVE YOU and THANK YOU MOM!" These words outweight any thing. Spend the whole day with your mother because a mother's joy is her children's time spent with her. Sometimes, we spend less with them because we're preoccupied with something else. Today make it up to your mother.

Or you may let your maother take a break from the kitchen, instead you're the one will prepare for breakfast or dinner. The highlight is you spend worthwhile moment with your mom. That's what mothers really appreciate the most, giving the feeling that they are appreaciated and special.

We can be daughter and son once in our life time. So make everyday a Mother's Day, kiss your mom always and tell them you love them, don't wait for Mother's Day only.

Manny Pacquaio knocks out Ricky Hatton in second Round

With his second-round destruction of Ricky Hatton, Pacquiao continues to cement his reputation as the world's best fighter, pound for pound.

The fight summary is one paragraph. Pacquiao knocked Hatton down twice in the first round, dominated the second and caught Hatton with a vicious left hook as the round ticked down. Hatton's eyes rolled back and his body fell, like a sack of potatoes, flat on his back. Referee Kenny Bayless knelt over him for several seconds, then waved his hands, with one second left in the round, to signify that the fight was over.

The aftermath was a bit scary. Hatton didn't move right away, and soon there were many people with concerned looks on their faces, kneeling and hovering. Hatton may have been on his back longer than he was on his feet during the fight.

Eventually, they brought his stool to the middle of the ring and got him on it, and a few minutes later he left the ring under his own power, waving feebly to a crowd of Brit fans who may have been driven to drink by the result. Of course, any result would have driven them to drink.

Pacquiao, the Filipino powerhouse whose record went to 49-3-2 (with 37 knockouts), weighed in Friday at 138 pounds and went to 148 by fight time. Hatton, now 45-2-0 (with 32 knockouts), weighed in at the limit of 140 and gained 12 pounds by fight time.

A measure of how dominant Pacquiao has become is that this victory marked his fourth different weight-class win in the last 14 months. His previous conquest, of boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya at 147 pounds, sent De La Hoya into retirement. Hatton is only 30, two months older than Pacquiao, but may be pondering a similar path. The pubs of Manchester are a lot safer than Pacquiao's left hand.

Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, now the pound-for-pound best corner man in his sport, pretty much called the shot again, just as he had against De La Hoya on Dec. 6. He said Pacquiao would knock Hatton out in the third round. Pacquiao apparently had earlier dinner reservations.

"This fight was no surprise to me," Roach said.

The star trainer always seems to have a secret strategy, and he revealed afterward that, for this one, he had watched hours of film of Hatton -- "I knew him better than my own fighter," he said -- and realized that Hatton was wide open for the right hook.

"Hatton pumps his fist before he throws," Roach said. "We also knew he'd be looking for the left," Pacquiao's main weapon.

The first knockdown in the first round came via a right, the second with a left. Hatton had actually survived somewhat better in the second, despite Pacquiao's quickly evident superior hand speed, foot speed and punching power. But the left that finished him started at about 7 o'clock, landed on Hatton's face at about 12 noon and made the likely obvious result official.

Hatton didn't attend the post-match news conference, because he was taken to Valley Hospital. Before he left, he said, "It was a hard lot, but I'm OK. I really didn't see the punch coming, but it was a good shot."

Pacquiao, ever the diplomat, said, "I'm surprised the fight was so easy. I worked hard in training camp and he was open for the right all night. It was nothing personal. I was just doing my job."

Bob Arum, whose Top Rank Promotions handles Pacquiao, called his boxer "a monster" afterward, and started making noises about Pacquiao's becoming boxing's "all-time great."

" I laud you Manny Pacquaio, once more you never fail to bring honor and pride to our country. As what you always say that your fight is for the Philippines, your victory gives enjoyment and happiness to every Filipinoes. I just feel sorry for Ricky Hatton, though he's knocked out, hope he's okay."
