Not so surprising

The “surprise” 82nd birthday celebration for Teresita “Manay” Manaloto on Dec. 29 was held at the lanai in the lovely abode of Ray and Ai Manaloto Lim in Sta. Clara.

Aside from the brothers and sisters of the celebrator, present were her relatives, the Sisters of Charity, her classmates in high school and college, the Casa Maria group and Fr. Naring de la Cruz.

After the delicious dinner, a special number was performed by the Damas de Caridad children, with the special participation of Ella Manaloto.

A week before the party, Manay and I heard mass and had lunch at the Bacolod Boys Home, one of her favorite charities, with the Home of the Aged at Airport Subdivision.

To dear Manay, happy, happy birthday and good health to you, always. God bless you.*

Remember: We face all challenges behind all the problems because we believe that the more pain we overcome, the stronger we become. Just hold on.*
