I was telling Rob Gier during our lunch with Azkals here in Jakarta that I wanted to have them sign something but I was a bit embarrassed. And with some encouragement from him to send over something for the team to sign (he said he would pass it around) I sent them the pics I took of them for signing.Read More
Will our Azkals finally have a home?
Continued from yesterdays post on Watching the Suzuki Cup Philippines vs. Indonesia Semi-finals 2nd leg live. I want to add words to recount this crazy experience of taking pictures behind the pitch and waiting for the player to exit so we can convoy out with them, girls in cars beside the bus trying to get the players attention while smoking (Hmmmm… I wonder if that ever works with athletes? =P), and so much more!Read More
Watching the Suzuki Cup Philippines vs. Indonesia Semi-finals 2nd leg live
I swear I meant to do this sooner… and I am sorry it’s so late! I decided to finally put up my post on Watching the Suzuki Cup Philippines vs. Indonesia Semi-finals 2nd leg live today! It’s only appropriate since today the Azkals are playing against Mongolia in the AFC Challenge Cup (THEY WON! WOOHOO!). It’s their first international competition since the one against Indonesia last December. You must wonder “Diplo Wife why did it take you so long?”Read More
Saw Spot.ph’s Top 10 hottest male athletes last night and it’s not surprise to me that 4 out of 10 are football players (pictured below) and there was only 1 basketball player. Though I thought there should have been more than one surfer! (With all that paddling, surfing creates that über hot V-shaped ripped upper body!) Shout out to Luke who I knew during my La Union surfing days!
I read this interesting article online (too bad I can’t find the link anymore!) that analyzed why football had the hottest players than other sports. (I totally agree! So many of them look like freaking models!) Basically with football you have regular guys – they don’t need to be too tall like in basketball or too muscular/bulky like in american football or wrestling, etc. They are just sorta your average guys, but hella ripped and fit from all the running! =P Do you agree?
7. JASON DE JONG
This half-Dutch, half-Pinoy cutie is the midfielder of the hottest football team of the moment, the Azkals. The 20 year-old is also eligible to play for the Netherlands, but lucky for us, he chose to play for Team Philippines instead. Catch more of Jason’s tanned skin and bright smile on the field as the Azkals are back in training for a new round of tournaments.
Just wanted to share this even if I myself can’t watch the AFC game against Mongolia on February 09, 2011 (7pm) in Panaad Stadium, Bacolod. So excited for everyone in the Philippines who are going to be able to watch it!

Check out this cool video of him below! Did you see the legs on this one? Talk about thunder thighs! LOL!Read More
Thanks to Richard Pacana for allowing me to use post these über cute pics on my blog! What a fun idea they had for the past holidays… Azkals Merry Christmas pics! And what lovely Christmas elves!
I think that was the first time in Philippine Football or in Asia that Santa hats were used during training in an international tournament! Well, it helped us survive the cold weather in Vietnam that night! Haha! Thanks to our Managers (Boss Dan, Sir Frank and Richard) for the wonderful idea! We really enjoyed our last practice in Vietnam before the Myanmar game.

Sorry I know this is quite delayed, since we’ve been so preoccupied with all the holiday celebrations. Anyway after the first leg, we got a text that there was going to be a “pep rally” at 2:30 pm the afternoon of the game at the Sultan Hotel. This was perfect for us, because we wanted to convoy with the team or go with the other supporters so that we weren’t an island in a sea of red like the first game!Read More
To show our support, the embassy hosted a lunch for the Azkals with the Filipino community. Mongolian food and other Pinoy party staples were served, like pancit, bbq and lumpia. The team arrived to a rousing welcome, and they were so gracious in allowing everyone to take pictures with them. They barely got to eat their lunch with all the picture taking! =P
MANY more photos after the jump!Read More
