I beg to disagree for building a monument for Manny Pacquiao. I admire and respect him for being the Greatest Boxer in the World and Filipinos are getting famous for our own talent. He already have the fame and riches: an actor, a recording artist, a wanna-be politician... what more can he ask for?
I say Manny Pacquiao is a very humble person but I think he should disapprove a monument depicting himself. The politicians are riding with the fame of Manny Pacquiao for using him now that the election is near. Besides, he have been welcomed to any provinces or city, like Manila, Cebu and his own General Santos. I've heard that Manila and Cebu will build a monument for him. What the...??? A monument in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao? Come to think of it that the money use to be build for the monument comes from the people of the Philippines. You know, OUR TAXES???
It is such a waste if the project for a monument will be pushed-through. There are no benefits that we could get from it. I hope that whoever politicians are thinking of the project will change his or her mind that the money should be used for the welfare of the people in their town, city, province and much more for the country.
