Who is Pacman?

i bet everyone's glued on the t.v. or live stream today for the Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao vs Ricky "Hitman" Hatton fight. But have you ever wonder who Pacman really is?

Pac-Man is a game developed by a Namco employee Tōru Iwatani. Originally called Pakku-man (Puck Man in english), which came from a Japanese phrase paku-paku taberu, where paku-paku describes (the sound of) the mouth movement when widely opened and closed in succession.

partly inspired by a pizza missing a slice, the design is a simplified rounding out the Japanese character for mouth, kuchi and also eating.

the game, first released in Japan on May 22, 1980 was later picked up the U.S. Bally division MidWay and renamed it as Pac-Man. it soon became a worldwide phenomenon within the video game industry, resulting in numerous sequels, spin-offs, and merchandising tie-ins.

lastly, as we all know Pac-Man went on to become an icon of video game culture during the 1980s.

that's a good trivia for you and a scoop who IT PINOY is betting for haha! now let's get on with the fight!!!

dear facebook,

today marks our 10th year together, i must say it has been a sweet journey. unfortunately, time has come for me to walk away.

i had high hopes for us when we started, especially at the time when my heart still beat for… what was her name again? ahh friendster (may she rest in peace). but you were all smile and poised, a neatly uniformed college girl full of hopes and overflowing with excitement. you had me at one poke!

through you i bravely opened up my thoughts to the world. i was able to connect with old and new friends. you bridged time, the longitudes and the latitudes. i got found and new relatives were discovered. once a year you even make me famous sending out birthday reminders. with you, i was a kid in a playground, swiping up or down till the wee hours, unconditionally tagging anyone and gleefully enjoying your games.

know that i am glad to have witnessed you grow - your fun emojis, crazy virals, and live videos i will sorely miss. oh i always thought it’s cool…
