Pacquiao-Hatton fight

Martin Nievera sings “Lupang Hinirang,” and no one stands up in the restaurant. A boy, about 9, puts his hand on his breast and a young man imitates the gesture, smiling at his companion. The boy gingerly puts down his hand and play with his gun again, shooting at the screen while the national anthem is playing on. I was waiting for someone to stand up, and didn’t have the courage to do so because no one seemed to know we were supposed to do that.
