Pacquiao returns to hero’s welcome after latest victory

One week after his latest conquest, Filipino boxing champ and Sarangani Rep. Emmanuel “Manny" Pacquiao returned to a hero’s welcome in the Philippines Saturday.

Pacquiao arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 2 at 6:35 a.m. on a Philippine Airlines PR-103 flight from Los Angeles.

“Maraming, maraming salamat sa dasal at suporta. Masaya tayong Pilipino at nakapagdala tayo ng karangalan (at) proud tayong mga Pilipino (Thank you very much for your prayers and support. We Filipinos have reason to be happy and proud because our latest victory brought honor to the country)," he told a crowd gathered at the airport to welcome him.

He said his immediate plans include bringing his children to Los Angeles for a vacation, before the new school year starts.

The champ, wearing a light-brown polo, hugged his children, who presented their gifts to him and wife Jinkee.

“Masaya ako naghanda sila for me sa Mother’s Day. Masaya ako na-remember nila ako na-miss nila ako," Jinkee said.

Among others waiting for him at the airport were supporters led by former Manila Mayor Jose Atienza Jr., radio dzBB’s Glen Juego reported.

Fans at the NAIA-2 crowded the arrival area for a glimpse of their idol.

Many of those waiting for him brought placards with “Welcome home" messages.

After his arrival, Pacquiao was to have breakfast at the New World Hotel in Makati City before going to Quiapo Church in Manila for his customary thanksgiving Mass.

He is then to make a courtesy call on President Benigno Aquino III in MalacaƱang.

The champ is then scheduled to proceed to General Santos City where a hero’s welcome has been readied for him.

Last May 8, Pacquiao maintained his winning streak as he defended his welterweight crown against Sugar Shane Mosley, prevailing by unanimous decision.

He wore yellow gloves for his fight, to symbolize Filipinos’ unity especially in the fight against poverty. — LBG/HS, GMA News

Chinese girls born in single body with 2 heads

A hospital in southwestern China says conjoined twin girls with a single body and two heads have been born at its facility.

A staffer surnamed Wang at Suining City Central Hospital in Sichuan province says the girls were born Thursday.

Wang said Tuesday the parents, who are farmers, did not want to have the babies at first, fearing they could not afford to keep them alive. She said they transferred the twins to a hospital in the nearby metropolis of Chongqing to be examined by experts.

The local Huaxi Metropolis Daily reported the twins weighed 9 pounds (4 kilograms) and measured 20 inches (51 centimeters). They have two spines and two esophaguses and share other organs. Doctors were quoted as saying it would be nearly impossible to separate them.

The statement added that the show will "showcase new games that will utilize an LED (light-emitting diodes) floor and new software technology for a whole new TV experience.

"This brand new approach in local game shows is definitely a visual treat for all Filipinos. While brainstorming for new segments, we're keeping in mind that these new innovations on TV shall be incorporated in all the mechanics of the games to make sure that we offer something new for everyone," said Jay Montelibano, business unit head of "Wil Time Bigtime."

“We’re very optimistic with what the new show has to offer. Wil Time Bigtime becomes TV5’s strongest link to the masses and we’re offering them a whole new TV viewing experience with the technology we’re utilizing in the show,” said Roberto V. Barreiro, TV5 Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

The show will air at 5pm this Saturday and subsequent weeknights at 6:30pm on TV5.

Selena Gomez: I like my boring style

Selena Gomez hasn’t cracked working high fashion on the red carpet yet and prefers to play it safe.

The 18-year-old actress-and-singer revealed that she is still figuring out where her fashion personality lies and likes her “boring” outfit choices.

The gorgeous brunette defended her pretty premiere gowns against fashion criticism that they aren't daring enough.

“I’m growing up and exploring who I am both personally and musically, so it’s a really exciting time,” she told British magazine Look. “I’m 18 but I still feel like a 15-year-old sometimes because I don’t wear out-there clothes, so some people say that the way I dress is boring. I’m like, ‘I like boring!’”

Selena revealed that she admires fellow thespian Gwyneth Paltrow for her charisma and groomed looks.

The movie star is known for following a healthy diet and tough exercise regime – and has the figure to show for it.

“She’s got such a presence and always looks amazing. She’s got an incredible body,” Selena said.

But while the teenager names healthy eater Gwyneth as her idol, she admits that her own diet could be more nutritious.

The Disney star revealed her somewhat unusual breakfast routine and admitted she does worry about its effects.

“I’m not as healthy as I should be. Every morning I have two tacos from a little place near where I live,” she said. “I need to get my diet in check, it’s going to start catching up on me!”
