Happy birthday Papa! ☺

Today is the birthday of the most important man in my life. The one who tirelessly and patiently manage my stubbornness and tantrums since I was a kid. The one who continuously give pieces of advice and support whenever I need one. He is my father Luisito Manahan a.k.a Papa Otis! I love him with all my heart and I just cannot be more grateful to GOD for blessing me and my siblings such one-in-a-trillion DAD! 

If we're friends on facebook or even a fan of my facebook page...your timeline definitely got flooded with my greeting posts addressed to my dad. Before I forget, today is also the birthday of my Ninong Jhon Jhon who is in Singapore now. He is the youngest brother of my father and it's just amazing that the first and last siblings was fortuitously born on the same date, May 28. So you could always expect double-celebration with that. But not anymore since my Ninong has to fly to Singapore for greener-pasture. 

Going back to my father, I know words will never be enough to make him feel our LOVE but I just want to express and share how much HE mean the world to us. Thank you Papa Otis for constantly and endlessly devoting your time, sacrifices, love, and life for Alvin, Sunshine and Luisito Jr., ALONE for 20 years and counting ever since Mom died. I am sure she's happy in tears today watching us grow into virtuous and upright beings. Thank you for always reminding us to always keep our feet on the ground and to keep our faith in HIM. You are the best dad one could ever find in the world. Happy Happy Birthday PAPA! We love you so much!

I wanna share to you the photos and quotes + messages I shared on my facebook account. :)
Really, sorry for flooding guys! :)
