How to Fix a Sink that is Not Draining

Wazzup World!

Having a sink that is not draining can be a real problem. It effectively makes the sink unusable. When you have a blocked sink it can also smell bad. However, the good news is that, like a hot water system, in most cases you can fix yourself without the help of a professional plumber.  

The Best Methods to Unclog a Kitchen Sink

As long as it is done right, using a plunger to clear a sink is the best and quickest way, and that is true for any type of sink. To begin, the correct plunger is needed; it is important to note that for sink plungers, they will be smaller and dome-shaped, while toilet plungers are larger and shaped like a bell.
Secondly, plunging will work best if there is some water in the sink. For sinks that are not draining at all, you will simply need to begin to fill it with water. However, if it is draining albeit slowly, then you may need to place a sink stopper in before attempting to fill with water. After the sink has roughly 2 inches of standing water, you can now begin to start to plunge it.
To do so, simply grab the plunger and position it at a slight angle to allow for bubbles to escape while you're plunging with the help of air. Once the plunger is in the right position and you are confident, cover the drain opening with the plunger and start to pump until the sink starts to drain.
While this will take care of most sink clogs, in some cases the issue won't be resolved in this way, and other methods may need to be used.

Pull out the Clog Manually

If your sink is still not draining correctly after plunging, it may be a large object or a group of objects that are causing the issue. In this case, you will now need to dislodge or remove what is clogging the drain manually. Because of the size of kitchen drains and plumbing, you won't be able to do this by hand, so you will need some sort of tool to help.
Most of the time, this will be done using an auger or plumbing snake. However, if you are in a hurry and don't have the time to find one, then you can try to straighten out a wire coat hanger to do the same thing. You will want to push the snake into the drain and try to reach down as far as you can.
This will either push whatever is clogging the sink through the pipes and resolve the issue or bring it to the surface so you can easily grab it and dispose of it.

Baking Soda and Vinegar

A drain volcano refers to the chemical reaction that happens when you mix vinegar and baking soda, and this is a great method that is an alternative to chemical drain cleaners.
Before using this method, make sure to run the garbage disposal to ensure that it is not the issue. After, simply pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain and follow it up with 1/2 a gallon of vinegar and boiling water (the ratio for this is 1:1).
This will allow a cleansing action to take place that will, in theory, allow for most debris and food residue to be washed away when followed up with more boiling water in around 10-15 minutes after the baking soda and vinegar mixture has been used.

Next Step

If your sink is still not draining correctly after trying all methods listed above, it is time to disassemble the P-trap and clean it by hand. This can be messy, but in most cases, it will fix the issue, and you can do it at home without calling in a plumber.
You will want to make sure that the cabinet under the sink has been cleared, and that you have a bucket handy to catch the water and debris that will come out during this process.

Making Health a Family Affair: Simple Steps To Future Proof Your Health



Wazzup Pilipinas!

When you have a family, every step you take is observed and even adopted. Kids learn based on the model, and parents are their role models during the formative childhood years. Healthy habits are developed and adopted over time and the entire family plays an important role. So, if you want to make health a family affair and instill some good habits into your children, do it as a team.


They know the importance of quality time

Healthy families know the value of doing things together. You can’t just tell your kids to go out and play, you should set up an example instead. Since, kids these days are inclined to spend all of their time indoors, create a healthier routine. Pick at least three days a week and spend 30 minutes to an hour on a fun outdoor activity. You can easily use this to your own advantage as well. When you skip your regular workout, but you still need that post-exercise thrill, go for a speedy walk with your kids. You can even challenge them to race you. This way you’ll bond, spend time outside and take up a regular physical activity.


Never skip breakfast

If a parent skips breakfast in the morning, the kid won’t be so hungry in the morning as well. Kids repeat our motions because they want to be all grown up. So, give a good example of never skipping breakfast in the morning. Breakfasts are essential to our morning routine because they fuel our body right after an all-night fast. Eating during an hour after waking up jumpstarts the metabolism and gives us the right energy we need. Even for your kids’ meals, stick to healthy unprocessed food like oatmeal decorated with fruit or scrambled eggs decorated with pieces of colorful veggies. If your kids are picky eaters, break this bad habit by decorating their breakfast with pieces of fresh fruit or veggies.


Share meals together

Mealtime brings family close and strengthens their bond. You will get an opportunity to discuss their day while you also influence their healthy eating habits. When you sit at a table together without your phones and without any time limits, you get to truly enjoy the meal and each others presence. Even if you can’t sit together through every meal, aim to share at least one together.

When you do this, you model healthy behavior to your kids and get to control their portion size. You can also invite your kids to suggest some meals and you can even cook them together. To make sure that your kids eat enough veggies and fruit, make sure each meal is based on it.


Healthy snacking is an option

Kids love to snack because snacks are too tasty and easy to consume. But, the point of a snack is the fuel you up between meals so you won’t starve until lunch or dinner. Since a bag of chips or a chocolate bar is a source of empty calories you need to explain the difference first to your kids. Then, offer a healthy snacking option like carrot slices, apples, bananas, greek yogurt, nuts or dried plums. Make sure your kids have these options available to them when you’re not home. Stock up your fridge or pantry with a variety of healthy snacks and remind your kids that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.


They are also creative together

This is especially important if you have younger children - spend time on creative projects together. Parents will use this as stress relief, while kids will boost their imagination, problem-solving skills, and creative thinking. For example, you can both color together. Parents can express their artistic side while coloring an adult coloring book. Whereas, kids can color their own age-appropriate coloring book. This way you’ll both enjoy a moment of peace, while also engaging in a great activity together.

If your kids are teenagers, you can find a DIY project like sewing or a pottery class. Cooking together is also a creative activity and kids of all ages can participate. All you have to do is give them a suitable activity they can master with confidence.


They do one fitness activity together

It goes without saying that healthy parents create the environment for their kids to be healthy as well. SO, if you as a parent prioritize exercise as an integral part of your lifestyle, your kids should follow as well. You should definitely sign your kid up for a fitn=tness class appropriate for their age. You can both sign up for a martial arts class at the same fitness center. This way your kid will be proud that you are doing the same type of activity at the same place and most likely fall in love with it more easily.

Also, do one fitness activity together. You can go running around the block or cycling on the weekends. Find a suitable bicycle for your kid at Bicycles Online and embark on weekend cycling adventures.


They also embrace mental health activities

In the age of video games and YouTubers, you can’t expect your kid to pick up a book on their own. Reading is a forgotten activity among adults as well. So, in order to inspire your kids to seek an adventure hidden within pages of a book and foster their creativity, thinking skills, imagination and increase brain power, set up a family book club. You can all join a public library and make reading a family affair. You can catch up on the classics while your kids explore the adventure series The Famous Five or the Harry Potter books. This will increase the chances of your kids reading later in life. Furthermore, they will improve their concentration, communication, exercise the brain and also explore an alternative way to have fun.

When you do it as a family, you can discuss your current reads on a weekly basis and exchange your views and thoughts on various topics.


They talk

A family book club is a great way to work on your communication skills. Even if you don’t prioritize reading, you should prioritize talking and this feeling of trust in your kids. This is yet another trait of healthy families because communication is a sign of a healthy atmosphere at home full of love and trust. Your kids shouldn’t be afraid to approach you when they have problems, issues or other dilemmas.

Don’t just rely on eating together to get a chance to talk with your kids and share experiences. Turn it into a weekly date. This will further strengthen your bond and create a healthy atmosphere for your kid to confide and share.


Put a limit on screen time

If your kid is old enough to have their phone, you need to set up some boundaries. Life happens when you are present in the moment, not glued to the screen. Moreover, kids who spend too much time on their phones or in front of a screen have a short attention span, struggle with obesity, and also affect their behavior and development.

When you put a daily limit on screen time, you’re doing your kid a favor, even though they might protest it. Moreover, you should also put a limit to your own screen time to lead by example. Create no-phone zones in the house, like at the table or during homework time. Don’t let your kids take their phone to bed, because there’s a risk of them using it during the night. Instead, create a charging zone in the living room where everyone is expected to put their phone at 8 pm in the evening. The phone should remain there until the morning.


Prioritize proactive health care

Regular health checkups are important especially when your child is growing up. You should teach your kids the importance of dental hygiene and regular visits to the dentist. This way, you’ll stop any dental issue from turning into a cavity or a lost tooth and teach your kids that they are responsible for their health.


Create a schedule together

You should plan all healthy family activities together and put them on a calendar. Plan daily, weekly and monthly schedules. Put this schedule somewhere where everyone can see it and be reminded of an upcoming activity. Consult this schedule when you need to make some impromptu changes to your routine. Regular practice turns a healthy activity into a healthy habit so make sure to respect this schedule and enjoy the fun activities together.

With a bit of planning, creativity, and effort, the entire family can make health a family affair. This will also leave room for some indulgences and turn them from guilty snacks into earned treats.

Driving Innovation and Empowerment in Coastal Communities



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay - A convergence of the local government, civil society organizations, and a group of fisherfolks can turn an impoverished coastal community into a bustling center of development and environmental conservation.

This was proven by Brgy. Concepcion in the municipality of Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay as they worked for the re-emergence of their marine resources through mangrove planting and fighting illegal fishing activities in the Sibuguey Bay.

During the learning exchange organized by Peace and Equity Foundation (PEF) with the fisherfolks from Padre Burgos, Quezon on February 4-5, Kapunungan ng Gagmay Mangingisda ng Concepcion (KGMC) Chair Roberto "Ka Dodoy" Ballon told the story of revival that brought their community to be one of the most successful and inspiring stories when it comes to community empowerment.

"Noong ‘60s at ‘70s marami talagang isda dito. Ang ilog dati ay malalim. Ngunit nang dumating ang ibang mga tao mula sa Luzon at Visayas, nagsimulang magbago ang lugar," Ka Dodoy said.

(The fishes were plenty in the 1960s and 1970s and the river is deep. But everything changed when settlers from Visayas and Mindanao came).



Ka Dodoy narrated that the mangroves were removed by fishers from neighboring barangays, and the river was blocked to pave way for fishponds, which led to the decrease of catch.

"'Nang bumaba ang kita ng mga mangingisda, pumasok sila sa mga illegal activies. Noong may pumasok na commercial fishers, nagkaroon ng dynamite at cyanide fishing. Ginawa din ito ng mga mangingisda dito," he said.

(Illegal activities started when the income fell. When commercial fishers entered here, they introduced dynamite and cyanide fishing on which the residents here followed suit).

The continuous destruction of environment and subsequent loss of income moved Ka Dodoy and other fisherfolks to act.

With the help of Xavier Agricultural Extension Service Foundation and the International Fund for Agricultural Development, KGMC organized themselves to begin planting mangroves and trained as "bantay-dagat" or sea patrols against illegal activities.

As KGMCs activities began to echo in other barangays as their mangrove planting brought back fish in the Sibuguey Bay, the local government passed a resolution that protected the mangrove forest in the entire town of Kabasalan.

“Nirerecognize namin ang local government na aming partner to pursue coastal programs and projects. Ngayon nararamdaman namin ang suporta nila,” Ka Dodoy added.

(We recognize the local government as our partner in pursuing local programs and projects. We’ve been feeling their support).

According to him, all coastal programs to be implemented by the LGUs are first being consulted with KGMC.

The convergence has brought prosperity to Concepcion, with some households able to send their children to school, buy appliances, and provide for their basic needs.

The success of the community later expanded through a provincial organization founded by Ka Dodoy, the Coalition of Municipal Association of Zamboanga Sibugay (COMFAZS).

“Sana kayo ay manguna sa Quezon Province ng bumuo ng ganitong programa para sa lahat ng mangingisda,” he addressed the fisherfolks of Padre Burgos.

(We hope that you can also create programs for all fisherfolks in Quezon Province).

Padre Burgos LGU vows to replicate same convergence

During the learning exchange, Padre Burgos Mayor Ruben Uy Diokno - together with Franco Bondeci and Gloria Santos of the municipal and provincial agricultural offices, and the leaders of Yakap at Halik Multi-Purpose Cooperative Quezon 2 (Yakap at Halik) and Ipil Action Group (IAG), whose members comprised of fisherfolks in the municipality - pledged to work together in further developing their coastal resources.

“Gusto naming umangat ang kabuhayan dahil nasa dagat ang pag-asenso kung aayusin lang natin,” Mayor Diokno said.

(We recognized that progress could come from the sea if we work on this together).


The Padre Burgos LGU has committed to fund bangus nursery and grouper production as well as provision of a patrol boat to protect their fishing grounds from illegal activities.

The town’s mariculture area will be rezoned for the fisherfolks of both organizations to further secure their rights in doing aquaculture.


According to PEF Senior Area Officer Peter Nabong, the convergence will lead to better coordination in the implementation of the coastal programs for the fisherfolks.

“Kapag tayo po ay nagkaroon ng koordinasyon, mas lalo pong gaganda ang mga mangyayari para sa inyong bayan,” he said.

(If we coordinate together, we can do better things for your municipality).

Meanwhile, Yakap at Halik General Manager Armel Amparo lauded the support of PEF and the LGU in their aquaculture activities.

“Natutuwa po kami dahil talagang hands on ang kanilang suporta sa amin,” he said.

(We’re glad that they are hands on with their support for us).

IAG President Leonardo Dela Peña also expressed his gratitude in the unity between his organization and other stakeholders in the municipality.

"Ang layunin namin sa aming komunidad ay iisa lamang. Ito ay para sa pagpapaunlad at kaayusan ng aming lugar," he said.

(Our goal is the same for our community: development and order).

PEF is currently implementing an area development approach to provide and link opportunities for economic improvement of households in Padre Burgos, Quezon through social enterprises.

How to Develop Your Brand on Instagram in 2020



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Social media networks have more than 3.2 billion active users and you can use them simply by your mobile. Among them, Instagram with more than 1 billion monthly active users from across the world is the best way for building brand awareness.

Although using this app might seem so easy, many marketers have not been successful in building brand identity via Instagram.

There are several tested strategies you can adopt to build your brand and boost your business via Instagram. In this article, we are going to summarize these strategies and provide you with a step-by-step guide to successfully develop your brand on Instagram.

Source: 500px.com

Clear goals

You need to define clear goals in detail to be able to track your performance on Instagram. You have to list some certain, achievable goals which can be measured and analyzed.

For example, you can define a certain number of followers, likes, comments, shares, etc. which you expect to reach within a specified period. By this approach, you can measure the changes in your results and optimize your activities proportionally.

Target audience

In the next step, you need to target the people that might want to purchase your products/services. This will enable you to devise your plans according to their characteristics. A targeted marketing strategy can affect all other activities on social media and cause considerable savings in time and resources.

So, you need to categorize your potential customers based on some clear parameters like age, weight, gender, color, profession, and location. Also, you can consider their personality traits to know what content and tone of voice are best to influence them.



Other platforms

Although we are going to focus on Instagram, you need to use Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, and other social media platforms to promote your marketing. We strongly recommend you to use social media automation tools like Crowdfire in order to manage your presence on all your social accounts.

This will decrease the possibility of making mistakes and can unify the style, tone, and schedule of your activities all over social media.

Also, you have to redirect users from other social networks or even from the web toward your Instagram account. If they are currently following your business on other channels, they are highly likely eager to follow you on Instagram. In this way, you can reach as many followers as possible and increase your visitors.

Content generation

The first and also the most important way to gain more followers on social media is generating creative content. Creativity in each of your posts, stories, links, or even engagements can improve your relationship with followers.

It is well-established that, in comparison with texts, visual content can better gain the attention of people. Many people might not have enough time to read long, boring texts. But a compelling picture can gain their trust and redirect them to your page.

The most recent visual feature available on many social media platforms especially Instagram is Live. By this feature, your presence on social media seems friendlier. It will prove that you are a human, not a vending machine.

Along with compelling, visual contents, you need to use creative texts, mentions, interactive hashtags, and captions to make your posts visible.

Creating a lot of original contents might seem very difficult. You can paraphrase other useful contents posted on Instagram. You should abide by copyright and mention the original accounts in your posts. Another technique in this regard is to ask your followers to send you compelling contents. By this approach, you can kill two birds with a single stone. First, generating high-quality content for your profile without spending time and money. Second, increasing the chance of getting more shares by those users who have sent you content.

Finally, it is recommended to use a schedule for posting. The highest rate of interaction can be achieved if you find certain hours of week and day at which your target audiences are online. Posting at these times will increase your visits.

Engagement rate

Without a consistent engagement, your efforts in the previous steps would not result in any achievement. If you want to build your brand on Instagram, you need to define a certain schedule for engaging with your audiences.

There are several important points that should be considered.

First, you need to find an efficient posting schedule for posting and engagement. It is recommended to engage with the followers just after posting. So, you will make your followers feel that you are bound to answer their questions. Subsequently, you will build a strong brand identity and also gain the trust of your customers.

Another suggestion is to adopt a suitable, chatty tone in your engagement. People do not like to interact with a selling robot. So, make them feel comfortable and treat them as a friend. Try to mention local, national, and global events in your engagement. This can build strong customer loyalty and encourage followers to be involved in your posts.

Getting more comments is an important way to promote your brand on Instagram. Please do not be indifferent about comments, and try to appreciate your followers’ interactions.


Influencer marketing

Influencer marketing is a powerful tool to reach your audience and generate leads. So, if you want to build your brand in the year to come, you have to include this technique in your plans.

People usually take care of what influential people say or suggest. So, if you want to boost your marketing, you need to collaborate with one or even more influencers.

Influencers can be divided into four categories: Mega, Macro, Micro, and Nano-influencers. Depending on the type of your product/service and also your marketing budget, you can choose your best match. As a suggestion, you had better start with Micro-influencer with less than 100,000 followers.

They are usually experts in a specific field and their followers are niche relevant. You have to conduct a deep survey to find the best choice. Based on Social Tradia, many influencers want to sell their Instagram account because they cannot maintain their followers. Thus, try to use discovery tools to find influencers or consult with some experts in this field.

Other tools

Finally, you will need many tools to be able to perform better on Instagram. For example, there are several tools you can take advantage of to find and contact these influencers on Instagram. Awario, BuzzSumo, and Heepsy can be very useful in this regard.

More importantly, business profiles on Instagram provide you with access to some analytical tracks called Insights. This feature gives users the ability to see engagement data. You can change your personal page to a business profile.

Also, Google Analytics is a powerful tool you can take advantage of in order to measure and compare your strategies. A consistent approach in analyzing your performance and optimizing your activities on Instagram is paramount. Your efforts and investments during the marketing process must be measured by suitable metrics to show how well you are performing.

Final word

We have summarized the process of branding and building your identity on Instagram. Of course, these stages can be expanded depending on the type and application of your products or services. Try to study more similar examples of branding in your niche.

For example, social escrow services and third party applications are also important if you want to acquire and customize a new Instagram account. This will help you to avoid making similar mistakes to previous unsuccessful marketing strategies.

Don’t Be in a Hurry

The submission date of the paper is soon, there is a load of other homework to do? It doesn’t mean that you need to write the paper in haste. Of course, it is very important to perform the task on time, but in a hurry, you can write half of the essay and then realize that you cannot complete it at all or you are in the wrong direction of completing it. Start writing only when you know exactly what you will write about in your paper. For that, you need an essay outline with the main points and subpoints.

Make a Good Start

When you have the topic of your paper, it is important to outline the main idea of your essay in a professional writing manner. If you manage to draw the attention of the reader from the very beginning, be sure that he/she will read the paper till the end. One of the main goals of an essay is to surprise, amaze the reader. The starting point of your paper must be a catchy statement or a polemical definition setting the tone for further writing. As a rule, only one issue is dwelled upon in the essay, there can not be many topics or ideas discussed at the same time in one essay.

Provide Proper Examples and Arguments

Expressing your own point of view in the essay make sure that the idea is supported by strong evidence and arguments. It can be facts, events, life situations and personal experience, scientific evidence, references to the opinions of research scientists, etc. It is better to provide two or three arguments in the essay body.

Make Essay Content Easily Readable

Interested in creating content that would be easy to read? Split the text of your essay into paragraphs with the topic sentences, add subtitles (if necessary), use the means of visual formatting (line spacing, aligning, setting page margins and orientation, etc.) Don’t make paragraphs too long, they will be difficult to read and the main idea of the written may be lost. Make your text convenient for the reader by writing in a simple academic style. However, using a variety of grammatical and syntactic constructions, as well as showing off your rich vocabulary will demonstrate a high level of English knowledge.

Use Reliable Sources of Information

It is very important to use contemporary and authentic bibliography while doing research for your paper. Such information may be found in the libraries, records, journals, newspapers, mass media and on the Internet. The easiest way is using Internet resources, but, sometimes, you may find a lot of interesting and unknown things in the archives, especially if you are studying Law or History.

Follow a Basic Essay Structure

Your essay should have a structure that is coherent. There must be an introduction, main body, and conclusion. The main point is to preserve the logic while writing the paper. In order to logically structure the paper, it is necessary to make a plan for your sample. All successfully-written samples have a logical structure supported with the argumentation.

Use Other Supplementary Resources

There are many essay samples that were written by other students, use them as an example. You may also benefit from ordering the paper from the writing service. Writing services provide you with the already-made paper for you, but at the same time, you may use them as a teaching manual for writing your future essays. You will develop writing skills and you may even start liking writing the papers by yourself.

Learn by Practicing to Write

You will master the essay writing skills only by practicing. Not all top authors were successful from the very beginning. There are many writers in the world who haven’t managed to write a brilliant book on the first try. All of them have developed their own writing techniques in the course of time. Unfortunately, time is a chief enemy of most students. What do you do when the term of the paper submission is close? You start worrying. But if you practice a lot before this date, your worries will be groundless. The more topics you deal with, the more confident you will become in essay writing.

In the meantime, all these tips will teach you how to improve the writing skills on the way to getting A+. By following them, you will be able to write the paper by yourself without extra help.

Discover the Biggest and Best Horse Racing Events in Asia



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Asia is home to some of the most exciting and lucrative horse racing events on the planet. If you love seeing the sight of these elegant animals racing around the track then here are some of the continents best races and events to look out for.

The Chinese New Year Race Day, Hong Kong

This event is staged by the Hong Kong Jockey Club. It takes place each year, always on the third day of the Chinese New Year holiday. The meeting is held at the Sha Tin Racecourse.

Prizes in the races run up to a massive $120 million. The 2020 event had three big races, with the Chinese New Year Cup being the main one. The Hong Kong Classic Mile and the Centenary Vase were the other races run earlier this year.

This race day isnt just about the horses, though. It also includes interesting features such as a traditional lion dance, gourmet food, and even feng shui advice from an expert. You can expect to see some celebrities from China and further afield at the event. There is even the chance to get luxurious free gifts like gold pens.

The Nakayama Grand Jump, Japan

The race in Japan started out in 1999 and is run over 4,250 meters. It is a Grade I steeplechase event that is famous for the incredibly difficult racetrack that the horses need to go around.

With prize money totaling some $1.7 million, the Grand Jump attracts big-name horses and jockeys from around the world. It is run at the Nakayama Race Course in Funabashi every April. If you need betting odds explained to you then it is well worth taking a few minutes to do so before watching this race.

Some people rate this as being the most important horse race in all of Asia. Certainly, it one of the worlds most prestigious and richest steeplechase events. Only thoroughbred horses over the age of four can take part here.

The Dubai World Cup, UAE

This glamorous race takes place in Dubai each March. With prize money of $10 million, it was regarded as the richest horse race in the world until the Pegasus World Cup introduced an even bigger purse.

Horses take part in a 2,000 meter race. This is just one part of the Dubai World Cup Night Event, in which the total purse to be won reaches a staggering $27 million. It is no wonder that stars from all walks of life flock to this event, as it involves as much money as the Kentucky Derby horse race best bets.

It is a Grade I flat race that takes places at the stylish, modern Meydan Racecourse, which has its own hotel with suites that offer the best viewing positions. Interestingly, the horses have to be aged four or more if they are from the Northern hemisphere, but those from the Southern hemisphere can be three or more.

The Saudi Cup, Saudi Arabia

This is a brand new race that is already classed as the richest event in the horse racing calendar. The inaugural event is scheduled for February 29, 2020 at the King Abdulaziz Racetrack in Riyadh.

A stunning prize pool of $20 million puts it ahead of its closest rivals in terms of prize money. The Saudi Cup is sandwiched between the Pegasus World Cup and the Dubai World Cup, meaning that the best horses on the planet can take part in all three lucrative races in a short period of time.

Perhaps surprisingly, entrance ticket prices start at just $25. The first horse past the post will earn $10 million, with cash prizes going all the way down to tenth place.

House of Kobe Becomes a Tribute to NBA Legend Hours After Opening



Wazzup Pilipinas!

A new basketball court inspired by Kobe Bryant immediately become an unexpected tribute to a fallen sporting hero. The NBA star died in a helicopter crash just hours after the new basketball venue opened. Now, there is a memorial in the Philippines for the deceased LA Lakers legend.

The Full Story

Artists Jonathan Jaudines and Leander Akamine painted a mural of Kobe Bryant in the Karuhatan Convention Center, in Valenzuela (Metro Manillas) The court was inaugurated on Sunday 26 January under the name of the House of Kobe.

A question of hours later, the Los Angeles Laker player died, along with his young daughter and seven others, in a helicopter crash in California. The accident happened at 10am US time, as the helicopter ran into problems in heavy fog before crashing into the side of a mountain.

Jaudines said that they were all shocked to hear the news come through so soon after the center had been officially opened. This coincidence was made even stranger by the fact that the decision to name the sports centre after Bryant was only taken a week earlier.

Congressman Eric Martinez told reporters that the community had begun the building work last year. They decided to put the retired NBA stars name to it based on his views on upward social mobility, as well as his massive popularity in the country.

What Was the Reaction Like?

Congressman Eric Martinez pointed out that the short time-scale from cutting the ribbon to hearing the awful news made the situation difficult to understand. He pointed out that "everyone has been fighting back tears today” and that it is a basketball-loving nation.

Other sports fans attended the new covered court to lay candles and flowers as a tribute to their hero. Heart-felt messages written on the wall included Rest in peace, Kobe, Rest in paradise, my hero, and Gone too soon. Plans to include the stars daughter, Gianna, in the mural are being discussed currently.

This is one of several new basketball courts that have been financed by Martinez, who used his congressional allocation to fund the P24-million convention center. A snake-shaped balustrade pays tribute to Bryants Black Mamba nickname while his face has been painted on the wall.

The Link Between Bryant and the Philippines

The NBA legend had recently been invited to visit the court on his next visit to the Philippines. His popularity in the country grew with each visit that he made. He travelled here a total of seven times during his long, successful career with the Lakers.

As one of the best-known stars in one of the most popular sports here, Bryant became an idol to millions of basketball fans. His so-called Mamba Mentality involved giving everything to succeed and not being afraid of failure. It is an inspiring idea that clearly struck a chord with millions of fans in this country and elsewhere.

ABC CBN News perhaps summed up the national mood best. Their headline stated that Kobe Bryant showed Philippines love, and Filipinos loved him back”. On a trip to the country, he once family played basketball with former President Joseph Estrada, and was happy to meet fans wherever he went.

It is obvious to know why, as Philippines loves basketball and his visit inspired young kids to pursue a career and become college basketball betting favorites in a near future.

Senator and boxer Manny Pacquiao put his own tribute to Bryant on Instagram. Pacquiao, who used to own a basketball team (Pacquiao Powervit Pilippinas Aguilas) commented that "the world lost a legend today”. He pointed out that the stars legacy will go on forever.

PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial was another high-profile figure to comment on the tragic news. He said that Bryant had been an exceptional player with a caring heart and that the PBA had lost a dear friend in the accident.
