The newbie senator from General Santos City, Honorable Emmanuel Pacquiao, or Senator Manny as people address him now, will be having no less than the President of the Philippines as his most important guest on his 38th Birthday Celebration tomorrow, December 17, 2016.
According to his inner staff, confirmed to attend Pacman’s party at the KCC Events and Convention Center are President Rodrigo Duterte, Senate President Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel, Speaker of the House Pantaleon Alvarez, and PNP Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa.
Both Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Grace Poe, who were also invited, reportedly could not make it.
As with his past birthday celebrations lately, there will time reserved for praise-and-worship. Last year, most of the guests were moved by worship master Don Moen. For his 36th thanksgiving, Christian group, Hillsong will be on hand to lead everyone in prayer through their gospel melodies.
This is the first time that Manny will be celebrating his birthday as a Senator so we should expect even more VIPs to pay tribute to the man who once peddled pandesal in the streets of Dadiangas and has since shown the world, that if you just pursue your dreams through hard work and dedication, you can do and be anything you want.
