Iginuhit ng Tadhana
Many people didn’t know that Bongbong Marcos played himself in Iginuhit ng Tadhana. It is produced by Sampaguita Pictures as a campaign pitch for his father the late Ferdinand E. Marcos when he first ran for the presidency in 1965. Gloria Romero plays Imelda, Luis Gonzales as Ferdinand, Vilma Santos as Imee and Gina Alajar as Irene.
Bongbong Marcos’ public persona is evident his three sons; Ferdinand Alexander, Joseph Simon, and William Vincent. Sandro, the eldest already appears in various press conferences, delivers speeches on behalf of his father, and braves interviews at his best. All of them seem to have interests in politics more than show business – even if they are sought-after in the field.
Marcos’ wife, Liza who is related to the Aranetas connected with the Liberal Party attests that her husband is a hands-on person. He would help change the diapers of their children when they were babies. Liza and Bongbong met and matched in New York City. She speaks highly of him as the best husband and father. No doubt that he can be better than his great father as president of the Philippines someday.
In the Eyes of Bongbong Marcos
Bongbong Marcos knows well that his son Sandro is hardworking, Simon is unique and Vincent is persistent. That’s a good trait of a leader – to know the best of each human being. He believes in the talents, hard-working nature, sacrifices, humility, hospitality and capabilities of Filipinos that he continues to nurture during his stint in the senate. Take the case of the OFW plight, Bangsamoro revision, and public services projects he championed. They are all for the advancement of the Filipinos he loves so dearly.
