Any of you are fans of Manny Pacquiao?  Well, on Sunday morning The Nook is showing the Pacquiao vs Clottey match live on pay-per-view, for only 100Php cover charge.  Come and watch the fight with your friends outdoors at The Nook!
In January, The Nook sponsored the Step Juan project, a walking expedition done by one man. The idea is to walk from Pagudpod to Sorsogon without any means of vehicular assistance and to do this for several weeks, straight, stopping only for food and rest. The backbone and foundation for this idea is to raise funds for the cancer children under the Cancer Warriors Foundation.  We provided a place for Tomas Leonor and his team to rest and a nourishing meal.  We were glad to be a part of this project and hopefully to help promote it.

Here are a few pictures of that day with the Step Juan project people, our matriarch, and cousin Noel (who prepared the delicious breakfast).

Step Juan has concluded the walk from Pagudpud to Sorsogon, ended at Matnog Pier 2 days ago.  Please check out their website for more updated news.
