“Iniisip lang namin na kailan kaya kami magkaro’n ng ganyan, tapos ngayon eto na.” Jinkee Pacquiao said in an interview aired yesterday on “Umagang Kay Ganda” ABS-CBN.
While on a separate interview, Manny enthused, “Regalo ko sa pamilya ko, sa wife ko, sa mga kids ko, after ng fight ko,” referring to his triumphant bout against Juan Manuel Marquez last November.
Named as “Saragani’s Pride”, the Italian fully furnished yacht boast of four rooms—two suites and two guest rooms—each with their own bathrooms. It’s also equipped with modern facilities such as a satellite. And to top it all, the yacht includes three jetskis, worth P1 million each.
Traveling from Sarangani to Manila will take one and a half days, added the “UKG” report. It’s apparently no wonder that Manny’s latest purchase is considered what ABS-CBN News reported as the “Ferrari” of yachts.
As for the family enjoying the gift what Ninong Manny gave, some of the netizens especially on twitter commented that the yacht is too expensive and stressed out that he should’ve used the money as a donation in helping the victims of Typhoon Sendong.
“WTF! Manny pacquiao bought 25M yacht but donated 500k only for cdo flood victims. I want to point out. “He is a member of the government, would mean 500k donation is not that good enough over his 25M yacht. Would that sound selfishness? Hay naku!”
“People in #Mindanao are struggling while Manny Pacquiao went shopping for a 25 million peso yacht. #WTF.”
Still, eventhough Manny did bought an extravagant yacht, yet he has already extended his help to the typhoon victims.
