Bongbong gives FL surprise b-day party

Despite his busy schedule, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. was able to pull off a surprise birthday party for his wife, First Lady Maria Louise “Liza” Araneta-Marcos, on her 63rd birthday on Sunday.

His weekly video blog published on Monday morning showed the President, the First family, and their friends organizing a dinner party for Mrs. Marcos.

“To my beloved wife, words have already been said as to how valuable she is as a person and how remarkable she really is. Sometimes it’s really hard to believe that she did me a favor of marrying me,” Marcos said in his speech during the birthday dinner.

Marcos also serenaded the First Lady with Andrew Gold’s “Never Let Her Slip Away.”

Their three sons, Ilocos Norte First District Representative Ferdinand Alexander “Sandro,” Joseph Simon and William Vincent were also present during the celebration of their mother’s birthday.

“I can see my Mom getting nahihiya. And telling Carmela that she’s fired and telling me that she’s fired, and I said everyone who organized this is now fired,” Sandro said during the party.

Araneta-Marcos was born on 21 August 1959 in Manila to Manuel Araneta Jr. and Milagros Cacho.

She graduated with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in 1981 and earned her Law degree in 1985, both at the Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City.

Bongbong and Lisa married at the San Francesco Convent in Fiesole, Italy on 17 April 1993.

The First Lady is a founding partner of Marcos, Ochoa, Serapio & Tan law firm, where she worked from 2006 until January 2019, and of M & Associates law firm.

She is a part-time faculty member teaching Criminal Law 1 at West Visayas State University in La Paz, Iloilo City starting this school year.

Education, culture, and traditional arts and crafts are among her advocacies as First Lady.

Her first official function as the First Lady of the Philippines was hosting a luncheon for the resident lady Ambassadors to the Philippines.

The luncheon was held on 3 August at the Rizal Hall at the Malacañang Palace.

Clad in a blue modern terno, Araneta-Marcos took this opportunity to thank the envoys for supporting her husband’s administration.
