Since June 2011, a lot of people saved & spent in order to get their tickets for the Olympic Games taking place in London and around the United Kingdom (see Olympic competition schedule).

Now these tickets are like gold dust…prices reaching £2.012!!! But people registered, applied and bought them.

Wondering who could spend such amount for a single ticket? But apparently, real fans are ready to almost over-spend. They consider the Olympics as a unique life-time experience.

Attending the Olympics is a real buzz for most people because so rare. It is like trying to set up a business; investing time, effort and money to reach what you are after, similar to an entrepreneur.

A kind of assault course, for a single ticket: you need to be fast, innovative, full of energy and willing to face walls. But naturally, who says buying means investment services too.

But eventually, you get what you wish despite of a lot of stress, anxiety and research. A win–win situation.

2012 is almost there and it is going to be a colourful, cultural & interactive year.

And to complete it there is the Twitter, Facebook and YouTube page.

Pacquiao was named fighter of the decade for the 2000s by the Boxing Writers Association of America. He is a world champion in 8 weight divisions.

Pacquiao, who is in Manila, cannot make the awards (Laureus World Sportsman) because he is due to fly to the US on Wednesday for an itinerary that includes a private meeting with the US president, Barack Obama.

However, he seems keen to take a flight to Abu Dhabi from Manila. But organising his last fight in the UAE is a real headache.

After Pacquiao fights Shane Mosley in Las Vegas on May 7, the deal for him to fight in Singapore is “90% done”, although no date has been agreed” added his Canadian adviser, Mr Koncz.

The date of that match could determine when the boxer could fight in the UAE.

There are 425,000 Filipinos employed in the United Arab Emirates, but it looks like his next fight is in Singapore.

His adviser is organising and negotiating with people in Singapore. Is there a reason for this?

Why Singapore first rather than Abu Dhabi?

Surely the boxer himself should have the right to choose where he prefers to fight!?

Is there something which can’t be revealed?
