Renzie Goes To General Santos City (and Meets Manny Pacquiao)

"God's Timing Is Perfect." That's what it says on Manny Pacquiao's shirt when we met him in General Santos City last weekend.

That's me and my colleague (Renz Mar), hanging out with Manny Pacquiao for a quick business meeting. Taken at Pacquiao's residence, in June 2018.

My colleague and I flew in from Manila to do a business presentation with Manny Pacquiao and his team. So we didn't really get to do much of sightseeing other than rushing off to hang out with Team Pacman while he's doing his daily routine.

His everyday schedule is crazy, crazy packed-- with intense training sessions, official functions, and all sorts of people trying to get a couple minutes of his time.

We were just happy we managed to get through our discussion with him without fumbling around too much.

Thank you for welcoming us into your home. Looking forward to hearing from your team soon, Mr. Senator sir.

Renzie on Instagram

Connect with me on Instagram, and hit me up for projects, tie-ups, collaborations, or if you'd like to reach out and start a conversation.

My feed is currently filled with stuff I do outside work (as my different work projects have their own respective Instagram accounts!)-- from stuff I watch, stuff I read, or stuff I eat.

Lately though, my feed has been seeing a lot more baby pictures. Hooray, first-time parenthood!

By Renzie

Renzie voluntarily removed himself from the hectic Metro Manila lifestyle, and moved to Amadeo, Cavite, just outside Tagaytay where he can wake up to the sound of roosters, and freshly brewed coffee in the morning.
By day, he manages a specialty cake shop. On weekends, he studies real estate management. In his spare time, he tinkers with websites. He loves DC action figures, the smell of paperback books, and KFC Hot N' Krispy.

I wanna know what you're thinking. Tell me what's on your mind!
