I am so lucky to be celebrating Tatay’s (means Dad in Tagalog, the language of The Philippines) 93rd birthday in the Philippines. Ken and I have had the good fortune of being able to spend time with my father the past two years as he has battled health issues and succeeded heroically through many tough times.
Tatay has always been a mentor to me… I inherited his drive and his eternal optimism and positive spirit (that’s why I am still in the business and love it after 35 years despite the difficult nature of the industry!)
My father is the consumate role model and an inspiration for so many people… I have been blessed to have him all these years!
Happy birthday Tatay!
