    He's the Chairman of PLDT (Phil. Long Distance Telephone) as well as Managing Director and CEO of First Pacific Co. Ltd, a HK-listed group (parent of PLDT and Indofood) which is incidentally owned by the Salim Family of Indonesia.

    Anthony Salim (Lim Seow Leong's son) is the current Chairman of First Pac, as well as President and CEO of the Salim Group.

    Manuel has been Lim's long-time trusted right-hand man and he himself is very loyal to the Lim Family.

    looking beyond his curriculum vitae, MVP is a well respected and much admired man here in Manila. He is known to be a champion of good business governance, and a big fan of Badminton. Heck, from what I heard, he used his own money to stage the MVP Cup. So i guess this guy deserves a big thank you from all the badminton fans who were able to enjoy 3 fun days of action ;)

    MVP Cup 2010

    Apparently, another MVP Cup will be held on March 26 to 28. Guess what! I will be representing one of Manny Pangilinan's companies in badminton. I passed the tryout last Saturday. I rarely play singles, but somehow, I managed to beat a couple of players. I got lucky. :D:D

    Oh no! It's exclusive for the companies owned by Manny Pangilinan.

    It is composed of different sports. I get to represent one company in badminton.

    There's also an "American Idol" version called "MVP Idol" from which I want to join. Unfortunately, I'm not the reigning champ in terms of singing where I work from. Too bad :(

    OMG! I didn't know that the MVP Cup Asia vs Europe is also named after Manny Pangilinan. The MVP Cup I'm referring to is just an intercompany tournament. :)

    I'm not sure

    I think it's exclusive for employees. I'll ask. But you can watch it in TV-5, as they will air it. :)
