We had property in Malate where used to stand a screen-covered chalet being rented from us by an old American lady named Mrs. In Malabon (where we lived during and after the Occupation) we learned that the last stand of the Japanese was Malate. It was there they had retreated when the Americans began to liberate the northern districts (especially their civilian comrades interned at University of Santo Tomas). Cruz Bridge and Jones Bridge in their wake. Trapped in Malate, the Japanese units were committing unspeakable atrocities, including herding people into buildings and massacring them. Before entering the area, the America GIs wanted to clear Malate of the enemy first. When we first surveyed the area, everything was scorched and in ruins. Gone were the chalets with screened porches that were the trademark of Malate. We had come from Malabon by horse rig because daddy wanted to see where we could build our new house. We had to stay two more years in Malabon while our US war reparations claim was in process and later when our Malate house was being constructed. In earlier times, Malate had been the summer resort of wealthy and cultured Binondo folk who built villas beside the sea in which you could then still swim.
Scott Quigg and promoter Eddie Hearn made a very public offer to fight domestic rival Carl Frampton earlier this month, but a cheque for £1. 5million was not enough to tempt the Belfast puncher into the ring. Scott Quigg admits he is now more likely to next face Nonito Donaire or Kiko Martinez than Carl Frampton in a world super-bantamweight title unification clash. The WBA champion believes if he is to box IBF title-holder Frampton this summer, the Belfast man's team must resume talks within a week to try and resolve differences on revenue split, venue and which TV station will broadcast the fight. Quigg, from Bury, expects to be fighting at the Manchester Arena on July 18 and his promoter Eddie Hearn has started talks with Filipino Donaire and Spaniard Martinez. -based Donaire, 32, has stepped back down to super-bantamweight and is a former five-weight world champion who lost to the world super-bantamweight No. 1 Guillermo Rigondeaux, of Cuba, two years ago. "In the next couple of weeks we hope to announce my next opponent and if Frampton's team are going to come back it will have to be in the next week because the fight needs to be built up," Quigg told ESPN. We are still in negotiations but we've hit a brick wall because we couldn't agree on a split.
(Catch the Live Updates of the Barclays Premier League match between Chelsea and Arsenal here). Arsenal were unlucky to have not had a penalty in the first half while both teams were wasteful up front even though Arsenal had the measure of the chances, in terms of how clear cut they were. John Terry and his back four were yet again stunning as Arsenal now loose footing and move to third in the table. The celebrations from the Chelsea players towards the end was justified as they are only a win away from the title. 94′ There is a last ditch attempt from Ramires and he is fouled by Monreal, it is a yellow card offence and the referee hands it. The free-kick is going to be taken but the referee blows the whistle and John Terry and co. celebrate the draw like a... 92′ Substitution: Chelsea- Willian Off, Cuadrado On There is a yellow card for Cazorla, who makes a cynical challenge on Hazard. The ball is floated in by Monreal, who makes a superb overlapping run and Sanchez in the near post and Welbeck in the far post make a mes off it and the chance goes begging. 88′ Yellow Card – Arsenal- Ramsey the Welshman knew what he was doing and pulls back Hazard as he goes for a run. The ball is played short from a free-kick, won by Ramires on the right.
