The Marcos family symbolizes the many aspects of Filipino lives. The Overseas Filipino Workers’ culture is no stranger to greeting birthdays from afar using technology. The recent birthday of Simon Marcos, the middle child of Bongbong and Liza Marcos shows this. It was celebrated the way most global Filipinos do. Birthday wishes were transmitted over the internet while he is in New York. He got to be the favorite son during his special day only.

Sandro from London
Sandro, the eldest son wishes his brother, Simon a birthday blast from London. He is looking forward to seeing him again and celebrate for real when they are back in the country. They may have different choices for their future careers but the goals and intention are the same for sure.
Vincent from Singapore
Vince also promises to cook him spaghetti Bolognese, which is more likely his favorite when they see each other again in the Philippines. He also gives up his title for the day as the favorite son to the birthday celebrant as an obedient son of his mother who happens to ask for it. However, he wants to reclaim the label soon.
Mother Liza from Ilocos
His mother from Ilocos is also all out in greeting her beloved son miles away. She said that wherever they are, they love him the same. They wish him the best in life. Being the hands-on mom since her sons were little, she really did a good job in adjusting to the current situation when they are in different countries. Teaching children how to become independent really makes sense.

The Birthday Celebrant, Simon
Simon seems busy these days but to balance his activities, he continues to do what he loves the most – playing the guitar. Music can really relax a person’s whole being. Celebrating one’s birthday from a distance is not anymore impossible these days. They may be the Marcoses but they are truly Filipinos.
