What more can I say? He has put the mighty Fedex to shame for the 5th time on his career. The Argentine has defeated the Swiss Master 1/6, 6/3, 6/3 to take the Madrid Masters in sterling fashion.
To exaggerate more, he has also defeated Nadal and Djokovic en route to the "killing" of Federer.
Good thing about THE Federer is that he knows how to accept defeat.
Roger's such a gracious loser. Don't you think that makes a great champion?!

The picture on top doesn't belong to the Swiss Alps or to the Spanish Pyrenees. Nor it does belong to the Peruvian Andes or to the Canadian Rockies. This is the highest mountain in between the Himalayas and the Andes.
This is Puncak Jaya, the highest mountain in Oceania. Certain people discount this mountain as NOT the highest mountain in Southeast Asia, giving the distinction to Malaysia's Mt. Kinabalu.
For me though, this snow-capped Indonesian mountain is the highest peak in South East Asia and Oceania combined.
Who would have thought that the tropics would host ice fields like this?

Hello everyone! I'm salivating to write this post. I know everyone have some things that they wish they could do but haven't found a way to do it. For me though, money and most especially time can be the two most defining factors why i can't do certain things.
Here's my wishlist though:
1.) I want to go to Batanes and discover the islands!
2.) Hike on top of Puncak Jaya, Mt. Kilimanjaro, and Mt. Pulag
3.) Explore Bhutan, Nepal, Kashmir, and the rest of Himalayas and the Hindu Kush
4.) Experience Cloud 9 in Siargao
5.) Go nomadic like David Proach (this time, I'll be in Sabang Beach in Aurora Province)
6.) Go to Central America and visit the remnants of Mesoamerica/Book of Mormon land
7.) Ride on a camel across the Takla Makan desert in western China
8.) Go skydiving and bungee-jumping
9.) Hot-air Balloon in Clark Field, Pampanga
10.) Own a penthouse unit at St. Francis Towers
11.) Laze along the white sands of Maldives, Phuket, Sipadan, and the Yucatan Peninsula
Those would be the some of the things that I wish I could but unfortunately I can't. What have you got though?

1988 Seoul Olympics became so remarkable when a Canadian named Ben Johnson suddenly struck gold and has broken the men's 100M dash by an astonishing 9.79 seconds.
However, that drama has ended into a pffft as it was found out that Mr. Johnson has been taking performance-enhancing drugs.
The woman on the right-hand portion of the screen has been the latest Olympic Gold Medalist (3 golds at that!} that's been under the microscope. She has cheated her way into Olympic glory Marion Jones has told the media that she DID cheat her way into Olympic glory.
The consequence of her actions? A retrieval of her Olympic medals.
Look at what cheating can do.
