Tree planting marks PBBM’s birthday today

September 13, 2022

President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. will mark his 65th birthday by joining the nationwide simultaneous bamboo and tree planting in San Mateo, Rizal today, 13 September.

The ceremonial event would take place in San Mateo MMDA Landfill and will be led by Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Ma. Antonia “Toni” Yulo-Loyzaga and Department of the Interior and Local Government Secretary Benjamin Abalos, Jr.

The Chief Executive will deliver a speech before witnessing the ceremonial tree planting at 8 a.m.

In a Palace press briefing on Monday, Press Secretary Trixie Cruz Angeles said there is “no information” yet whether the President will celebrate his birthday in Malacañang.

Moments before the President presided over his Cabinet meeting, First Lady Liza Araneta Marcos dropped by the Aguinaldo State Dining Room to invite the Cabinet members for a “birthday lunch.”

When asked about the lunch, the Press Secretary said it is difficult to discuss such a matter.

“I have no instructions to announce anything. You know minsan, sensitive iyong mga ganiyan. Wait, let’s just clarify baka may mag ano na naman sa akin,” she said.

“No, I have no information as to whether or not there is going to be a birthday celebration. However, we can safely assume that the President is going to mark it. That’s the official statement. Mark it, remember it,” she added.

Surprise party

Last month, the President was able to pull off a surprise birthday party for his wife on her 63rd birthday despite his busy schedule.

The President, the First family, and their friends organized 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 as shown in his vlog.
