Manny Pacquiao buys P388-M house in Cambridge Circle, Forbes Park
Published on: Jun 3, 2011 - 3:21pm

(SPOT.ph)International boxing champ Manny Pacquiao has reportedly bought a P388-million house in upscale Forbes Park, Makati City, sources say. The property in Cambridge Circle, estimated to be about 1,500 square meters in size, is said to have its own tennis court. The residence used to be the home of Roque Tordesillas, senior vice president for sales and business development of insurance brokerage company Marsh Philippines. It was bought by a prominent businessman who did major renovations on the property before selling it to Pacquiao.

In a Manila Standard article published on May 10, Janet Jamora, the twin sister of Pacquiao's wife Jinkee, revealed that the boxing champ wanted to buy a house in Forbes Park that cost an estimated P300 million. She added that Pacquiao would purchase it once he received his prize money from the May 7 fight with "Sugar" Shane Mosely. Another source says that the Pacquiaos have been wanting to buy the house for a long time. Other well-to-do residents in the exclusive village include Tonyboy Cojuangco and Sen. Loren Legarda.

The Pacquiaos also own a $2.3-million Spanish-inspired, two-storey, four-bedroom home in the upscale neighborhood of Hancock Park in Los Angeles, California, which they bought in March 2008. In 2009, Pacquiao was reported to have bought Antonio "Jun" Tambunting Jr.'s home in DasmariŮas Village, Makati, for P223 million. They also own several pieces of property in Laguna and General Santos City.

    ang pagbili ng property ay investement kasi yon lalo na sa lugar ng gaya sa Fobes. Tumataas kase ang halaga ng property, kaya investment yon. Mas maganda nga iinvest sa property ang pera dahil tumataas ang value habang tumatagal kaya walang lugi. Tapos dahil celebrity si Manny lalong tataas ang value ng property.

    If I remember right, Mannie before his fight with Mosley said he wanted to help the people here in the Philippines, especially those in his home province. I know Mannie rightfully earned the money but buying a house at that amount is just too much. No matter how many houses or fancy cars he buys, it will never erase the fact that he comes from a poor family. I admire those who are poor and make a name for themselves but I admire more those who are humble and use their money wisely and help those in need.rn How long will people support him--when he loses a fight, his fame will disappear. Mannie this is extravagance to the highest level! Use your money wisely. There are so many people starving and have no homes. You have too many homes you can hardly even stay long in anyone of them.rn

    Some 40 years ago when the dollar exchange was rn4 pesos to a $1, you can buy a house in Forbes Park for 5 million pesos or less. Pacquiaos house increased almost 400 %. I thnk that kind of price hike should never happen in this country whether it's in Forbes orrnin Manila. The gov't. should regulate prices and not allow this kind of increases so people can have the chance at home ownership.

    The village association should extend their warm welcome to the Pacquiaos. Manny, after all worked hard and should belong. Henry Sy and the Zobels were once upon a time poor.

      The Zobels were never poor. At the very least, their first ancestor who came to Manila belonged was a petit-bourgeois, sir.

    That would be the end of Philippine aristocracy! Forbes Park, dasmarinas village, corinthian gardens, new manila are the places of the so-called old rich.. sila yung from the spanish time up to present e tinitingala na sa lipunan ang pamilya.. old money wika nga.. we all have the right to buy whatever property our money can buy pero hindi nakakabili ng pedigree at breeding.. innate yun sa pagkatao natin e.. kahit pa balutin ng ginto at diamonds ang katawan natin, lalabas pa rin ang nakasanayan at kinalakihan natin.. mahirap baguhin ang pagkatao.. remember the children's story: the princess & the pea?

    Agree ako sa iyo jessica. Sana nga lang di na siya tumakbo sa pagka Congressman. He lives a life of irony. Ang advocacy niya ay support for the poor tapos high-profile ang lifestyle niya which includes gambling. He is true to his faith daw but everybody knows he sends financial support to Krysta Ranillo. He is against RH daw pero his wife pala takes pills. Hindi naman lahat ng constituents niya ay mangmang.

    Ang 388 million pesos is about $9 million USD. Yan siguro ang total na kinita ni Pacman vs Mosley kung nagbayad na kaagad siya ng 20% federal tax, bayad kay Roach and others, charter plane, hotel and other expenses siguro may natirang konti out of the $20 million USD na binayad sa kanya. In 2010 ang reported income ni Pacman was 1 billion pesos which is about less than 30 million USD. Kung 1 billion pesos lang ang declared assets ni Pacman hindi kasama ang mga properties niya, ibig sabihin hindi kaya mag-retire ni Pacman sa boxing anytime soon dahil sa high maintenance lifestyle nila. rnrnMagkano lang naman ang kita ng congressman. Ang position nya is a good passport to social acceptance and relevance as a person after he retires from boxing. Alam mo naman ang tao, pag wala ka na sa limelight di ka na pansin.

    Yung bahay ni Pacman sa Hancock Park pinakita sa MTV ang sama ng mga gamit at puro litrato ni Jinkee ang dekorasyon, at ang refrigerator pinakita puro sa Seafood City pinoy grocery ang laman. Ang Hancock Park is an old money neighborhood parang New Manila in the old days. Dapat sila Pacman magpa-interior decor para hindi mga litrato nila ang nakasabit. Nasa Hancock Park nga, mukha naman Gen Santos ang loob. Sorry, Inggit ako.

Wala pa akong alam na Pinoy celeb na may BAHAY sa Beverly Hills. Yong 90210 ang zip code ha.
