Navigating at 100 miles from Manila, currently accessible by sea via a three-hour drive from Manila to Lucena Port. And an additional two to three more hours by sea from Lucena to Boac Port.

Mommy D narrated that Manny had always been a good child, helping out his mother eked out a living, mainly for food. Mommy D boasted that Manny was a good pupil, getting grades no lower than 90%. They lived below poverty line. Mommy D shaped her children to be God fearing and to do what is right in life. To work hard.And God did not fail both mother and son. They persevered and now, Manny is still world champ boxer, with two mansions in Sarangani, buildings for rent built like Las Vegas architecture in General Santos.Mommy D had the world's toughest job, being Mom to Boxer Champ Manny Paquiao.
