Marian Rivera will turn 28 on August 12th, Sunday but her celebration started early by joining the Philippine Red Cross on the 8th for the rescue and relief efforts in Araneta Avenue QC. And today, August 11th(Philippine Time), from 12noon to 6pm, she’ll be at the Ever Gotesco Commonwealth to have a blood donation drive.
On her actual birthday on the 12th, Marian will be at Party Pilipinas, then after that, she and her family, including her boyfriend Dingdong Dantes, will attend a mass, and then a dinner with the family and close friends. Unfortunately, Dingdong wouldn’t be able to join them at dinner coz he has hosting duties for The Protege. Dingdong was going to skip work but Marian herself encouraged him not to coz they’d see each other after the show anyway.
Bukas, August 12, ang mismong kaarawan ni Marian.
Ayon sa kanya, baka magpa-dinner lang siya sa pamilya niya at mga malalapit na kaibigan.
“Sa Sunday kasi magpa-Party Pilipinas ako.
“At after Party Pilipinas, magtse-church ako kasama ko ang family ko. Si Dong din kasama namin.”
Si Dingdong Dantes ang longtime boyfriend ni Marian.
“After nun kasi, magpu-Protégé siya. So mag-dinner lang siguro ako with my family, then ang mga close ko na kaibigan.
“After Protégé, saka na lang kami magkita ni Dong.
“Parang gusto pa niya yata mag-absent sa Protégé, pero sabi ko hindi na, okay lang iyon. Trabaho lang ‘yan, e.
“So after Protégé, puwede pa uli kami magkita.” (source)
Marian considers all of these as her big celebration for her 28th birthday. She’s very happy, contented, and grateful with all the blessings she’s been receiving. If she ever wants anything else, Marian firmly said that jsut like everything else in life, she’ll work hard for it with the help of prayers.
“Sobrang blessed ko naman, e.
“At kung ano man ang nabigay sa ‘yo ng Diyos, dapat makuntento ka na.
“At kung meron ka pang hilingin, kailangang paghirapan mo yun, trabahuhin mo yun at lahat naman nakukuha sa dasal.
“Saka hindi naman ako bumabata, so gusto ko, habang dumadagdag ang edad ko, dapat maging makabuluhan naman ang kung anong buhay meron ako.”
AMEN! Happy Birthday Marian and I know in my heart that God will continue to bless you in every aspect of your life. You are an amazing woman with a beautiful heart who brings sunshine and smiles to everyone. We love you, ALWAYS!
