Ipinagdiriwang ng dating senador at kandidato sa pagka-pangalawang pangulo na si Atty. Kiko Pangilinan ang kaniyang ika-59 na kaarawan ngayong Agosto 24.
Kaya naman, nagbigay-pugay sa kaniya ang anak na si Miel Pangilinan, na kamakailan lamang ay umaming miyembro siya ng LGBTQIA+ community.
“My first vivid memory (like, truly vivid that I can remember) is of you telling me that I was a Virgo just like you. You told me nearly a decade and a half later that you said it so I’d know we had something in common,” panimula ni Miel.
“It was that day that I really fully realized just the kind of parent that you are. Always the only dad in our batch parent group chats, always dropping us off at school on our first days, always taking us to go grocery shopping every sunday, always making time out of your schedule to come and watch us perform something that you could’ve very well just asked for a video of.”
“Being a Virgo myself, I’m sure you understand that expressing my emotions like this is kind of difficult for me, but I hope you understand just how thankful I am to have you as my father. You’ve played out such a big parental role in our lives, taking the role of mother too, sometimes, and now it’s our turn to start taking care of you, okay? My siblings and I love you more than words can express. I’ll give you many big hugs today.”
Ipinangako ni Miel na kapag may lisensya na siya para makapagmaneho, siya na ang magda-drive para sa kaniyang tatay.
“Happy 59th birthday, farmer Fred!! When I get my license it’s my turn to drive you around na.”
Kalakip ng IG post ang mga throwback photo nilang mag-ama.
