Capturing the essence of being a Filipino...and the Pacquiao phenomenon.

He may be a boxing phenomenon but his personal attributes, as "un-average" as it may be to most people, is  typically Filipino. Filipinos already know this, first-generation Filipinos living outside of the Philipines know this, even non-Filipino spouses of Filipinos  know this. This article is a must-read for understanding the phenomenon that is Manny Pacquiao.
It has taken a non-Filipino (Michael D. Sellers) to make this observation; but that's okay, sometimes one has to be removed from a situation to appreciate the situation.
many thanks to my friend Rolly for pointing out this article.
