iamkarendavila "MANNY should STOP fighting. He is our very own Rocky Balboa. In boxing you are remembered for how you fought. An unbeaten record is not the measure of the best fighter. Mayweather started a future epidemic in boxing - avoid, run and take your money! For Manny, the toughest fights in boxing and in life can be won by walking away", @edtolentino on #ANCHeadstart. SHOULD MANNY STOP FIGHTING AFTER THIS? YOUR THOUGHTS? #may42015 #karendavila #MayPac #oneforpacman 21h
  •   joynery19 Dapat mgretire na... 15h
  •   chingorejudos Agree.. Manny should stop. 15h
  •   roaldestoquia @iamkarendavila can you please ask manny if you have a chance to interview him why he is not using his side to side movement. His speed and quickness. In short we did not see the vintage manny pacquiao. I want him to answer that. 14h
  •   lmsm7487 no i want him to get his rematch. change the rules of boxing and only win thru KO. mayweather is too weak for pacquiao he juz got a long range 13h
  •   lindycas I hope he does. Anyway you look gorgeous here @iamkarendavila 12h
  •   meena_4444 Where did you buy that beautiful red dress @iamkarendavila ? Nice. 8h
  •   vic22jun Have two sides, One Side Yes Agree, because He is a good person and an inspiration do not want something bad to happen to Him , on the Other Side No because if He retire we will never have as a Nation the same importance and respect in Boxing World. . 7h
  •   jenjenny1988 Well, even they will have a rematch it's useless if mayweather will do the same strategy like what he did with their fight. And what i don't understand is mayweather won the fight because of avoiding and walking away for the whole fight. So, meaning? If pacman will do the same strategy like mayweather did on their fight, is there any chance for manny to win by decision??? Mayweather did nothing on their fight and he won. From the first round manny beat him on the corner although mayweather defense is strong he still punch him continiously. But it's not counted??? How come? 7h

iamkarendavila TODAY! 🏼 "There is money in this fight but the most important thing in my heart is to let people know God can take someone from nothing to something. Before I was sleeping in the street with nothing, now I cannot imagine how that boy sleeping in the street, looking for food, starving, became known not just in the Philippines but in the world. It is beyond imagination how blessed I am" OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU MANNY @mannypacquiao 🏻 #oneforpacman #MayPac #IBuild @habitatphils photo #may32015 #HabitatAmbassador 2d

iamkarendavila GO MANNY!!!! 🏼🏼🏼 We are praying for you 🏻 I have always loved @mannypacquiao's story and humility, how he says "from nothing, God has raised me into something beyond my imagination". Blessed that Manny gave me these autographed gloves a few years ago when he joined @habitatphils! Win or lose, you are always a winner Manny!! #may22015 #OneForPACMAN #GodsGrace #MannyPacquiao #MayPac 2d

iamkarendavila #ANCHeadstart THURSDAY #MaryJaneLives but what happens after she testifies against the illegal recruiter? Will her life be spared? DFA Asec Charles Jose says they don't know but will do everything with the DOJ to prove she was a victim of human trafficking. Atty. @harryroque says govt should elevate case to the UN's CEDAW or Convention to Eliminate All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. YOUR THOUGHTS? #apr302015 #ilovemyjob #karendavila #ootdkaren 5d
  •   rudyvorense @sempleguy . Noon pa po inasikaso yan. Now lang nagkaroon ng so much media hype and mga tao na rin, gaya ng mga "cause-oriented" groups. 5d
  •   sempleguy @rudyvorense ahh ganon ba? Pero ang tanong ng mga kasama kong Indonesian dito bakit walang action nong una palang? Bkit time of execution ska nag lbasan ang mga bigatin ng pilipinas to negotiate at mga media din? Kya sabi nila Pilipino take action pare f your life is in a second... Totoo ba yon? 5d
  •   joyride1124 Sana lang po. Hinay hinay lang nga protesta.at sana matigil na ang pagsasamntala sa kapwa pilipino natin.gayundin.sa sarili natin kung alam natin na bawal malaki man o maliit na halaga ang kapalit. Wag na natin pasukin. Ang bawal ay mananatiling bawal..at iwasan natin ang palagi nalang sisihin ang ating gobyerno sa isang bagay na musmong mga mamamayan ang may kadahilanan. Maraming ofw sa indonesia at maaaring pati sila maapektuhan ng sitwasyong ito. Kaya sana hinay hinay lang po sa mga sinasabi nating lahat. 4d
  •   iamginan Wow I like ur dress..lalo na po ung color. U'r beautiful @iamkarendavila 4d
  •   arnoldnyo SERCH BITAG PARA SA BAYAN.YOUTUBE PLS MASAYA NAKO MAKITA KO LANG KAIT MINSAN SA TV.ARNOLD ESGUERRA YOUTUVE.FROM OFW SAUDI 4d
  •   rudyvorense You can do some research @sempleguy . You are right, however in saying ngayon na lang sila naglabasan. THERE IS one pathetic giy aspiring for a higher position who wants to be SO VISIBLE amidst all these things. Ganun talaga. About what the other people you know, you can answer them. I guess you know well your countrymen. Or do you? 4d
  •   rudyvorense What I mean, @sempleguy . Pwede mo namang sagutin ang mga kasama mong Indonesians, according to how well you know yourself as a Filipino, how well you know your family, relatives, friends and fellow Filipinos. 4d
  •   vanidosa08 Beautiful miss Karen, so love your dress!!! 3d

iamkarendavila Sharing with all of you our pic of the #ANCTeam with Indonesian President Joko Widodo last week during the #WorldEconomicForum in Jakarta. When I asked him about Mary Jane, he was firm about following the rule of law, but after PNOY's appeal, new information that had reached him & speaking with Anis of Indonesia's Migrant Affairs - Widodo changed his mind last minute, open to new evidence. Very hard to balance in leadership - firmness, steadfastness and yet to have an open mind with no fear of changing it. #apr292015 #ilovemyjob #karendavila #younggloballeader #LatePost 6d
  •   dineugenio Thank you. 5d
  •   nstephaniekim Thank you mr.president Widodo 5d
  •   meena_4444 Thank you very much for your fair reporting of Pres. Aquino & Widodo. 5d
  •   johnjulls @iamkarendavila Truly God works in mysterious ways!!!God bless Phils!!!! 5d
  •   emilyzapanta We have to thank our President this time. Hindi lang dapat puro batikos lang lagi. God bless our country! 5d
  •   vanidosa08 The reason why I super duper like you miss Karen forever and ever.Balanse lng, kumbaga patas ka.Sana may mag thank you din sa Pres., puro lng kasi batikos.Nakakahappy din pag may nabasa k na positive. 5d
  •   sweetyhuggy God is good and thank you to our Pres. Pinoy and to Pres. Widodo🏻🏻🏻 5d
  •   yetteluna913 We should also thank to our President Aquino for the job well done..God is really Good5d

iamkarendavila MIRACLES HAPPEN! 🏻 What good news waking up to #MaryJaneVeloso's life being spared! READ: In a text message to media, Tony Spontana, the spokesman for Indonesia's Attorney General said: "There was a request from the Philippine President regarding the perpetrator who's suspected of committing human trafficking and surrendered in the Philippines. MJ is needed for her testimony." PNOY's appeal to President Widodo that MJ be used as a witness worked in confluence with the illegal recruiter surrendering yesterday. Indonesia open to investigating again. YOUR THOUGHTS? #apr292015 6d
  •   lui_musni Yeah right. Miracle happened, its because of prayers. There's no possible when you ask God. Thank you! 6d
  •   libandphil Miracle because all the people who tried to talk to pres. WIDODO IS ALL HONEST. THEIR NOT LOOKING FOR ANY CREDIT. 6d
  •   mebte Karen, it's true that Mrs Sergio has surrendered herself to the police. But accdg to the news, she did it coz she's afraid of her life&their family ksi pinagbantaan daw sya ng Veloso Family. So it means that she's not admitting the crime yet, instead coz of her FEAR 4 her life. 6d
  •   mebte Tnx. 4 the reply Karen. 6d
  •   akojereme Indonesia already stated that PNOY made the request. PNOY = Filipino People. Ano pa bang kinagagalit at sinasabi pa ng iba na kesyo hindi dapat si PNOY ang bigyan ng credit? Even palace did not claim that. Maging masaya nalang tayo at hindi natuloy. Mag pasalamat sa Diyos. At patuloy na mag dasal. #Respect 6d
  •   leirau The power of prayer! God used pres pnoy as instrument to save the life of mj...to God be the glory and thank to all who prayed hard instead of saying harsh things to pnoy and blaming the pres and the govt in general... 5d
  •   kulaypinay Thank you Lord! Thank you to ALL who took their involvement in praying, poured their wisdom & stood by courageous leadership (esp. to PINOY) so we can save Mary Jane! 5d
