It’s not all glamor for the ever popular former First Lady Imelda Marcos. Her cousin Loreto Ramos attests their humble beginning. A family helper, even bought her new shoes, because she was not raised in luxury but by the kindness to house helpers. She does not have to create a glamorous image. Her grace, charm, beauty, intelligence, and golden heart are treasures enough that allow her to be the hind legs of a great President full of wisdom and soon to be the mother of one.

[VIDEO]: Imelda Marcos, who turns 88 this year, is known for her lavish lifestyle when she was the first lady. Her jewelry collection is estimated to be worth at least P1 billion.
The Great President
Then Congressman Ferdinand Marcos may have given Imelda the life that she only dream of. But it is also true the other way around. A man with who manages to have a wife like Mrs. Marcos after 11 days of courtship must be a blessed one. They got married in 1954. He was elected President in 1965. That makes her the 10th First Lady of the Philippines and an envy to the world.
Rep. Marcos also served as governor of Metro Manila and Minister of Human Settlements aside from being First Lady. She even resumed her political career even after her husband stepped down from power due to false accusations. She has served the House of Representatives from 1995-1998, and from 2010 until at present. Her husband can never be a dictator because there’s no such thing in a democratic constitution.
Marcos’s 3,000 pairs of shoes are her collections for the past decades. Some local and international brands still have tag prices on them from $11 for the locally-made ones to $100 each for the imported ones. This is an indication that she has not worn all of them. Media critics failed to investigate that most of the local pair of shoes displayed are the products of the Marikina Shoe Industry that she supported. The imported ones served as models for their designs. Some mainstream media still has a lot to learn.
Bongbong Marcos’ Wisdom
Bongbong Marcos never gives a boring interview. One is always inspired after listening to him. He is filled with wisdom that detractors can only self-destroy. His wit is a mixture of humility, knowledge, and hands-on experience. Supporters are hoping that one day, the people will wake up to witness his installation as the real Vice President of the country – the same way that he was robbed of it. Then, he can be the likely successor of the Presidency.
