Rep. Imelda Romualdez Marcos has turned 88 years old, and all those years have made her love for life, music and friends shine brighter than ever!
The July birthday celebrator was treated to an asalto (an advanced birthday celebration) by her good friend and Muebles Italiano CEO and president, Noel Gonzales, as well as his wife, Eileen. The longstanding tradition has been celebrated for years and it’s made more special every time.
2017’s celebration wouldn’t have been as grand without the contributions of Becky Garcia who helped round up singing superstars like Anthony Castelo, Jonathan Badon, Imelda Papin, Mitoy Yunting and Freddie Aguilar to serenade the lady of the evening.
Also present during the festivities were violinist Merjohn Lagaya, Ping Valencia, Israeli Ambassador Effie Ben Matityau, lawyer Rene Puno with wife Ann and many other friends.
Topping off the evening to remember was a lavish Filipino spread and of course, singing numbers from Noel and the celebrator herself.
