Andreij Turns 21

Keep Shining Son!

September 24, 2019

Keep shining son, you only turn 21 once. I hope that this day turns out to be more wonderful than you expected. Many years from now, you will look back to this birthday and remember that this is the birthday that you will finally face the world of reality. Welcome to the world of adults, and I pray you to like it here. It’s not always as cool as it sounds, but surely the best is yet to come. There’s a lot of wondering and second-guessing before finally succeeding. There’s a lot of tears before finally finding true love. And there’s a lot of trial and error before finding something that truly works. Still, being an adult gives you happiness like no other. I hope you have the time of your life!  

Mom and Dad's birthday prayer for you this year is for all your dreams and wishes to come true. Let God bless you always to be happy and healthy, and that you will never be afraid to take on the challenges of life. Being 21 means that you are ready to go out into the real world, armed with all the things you have learned in the past twenty years. It’s alright to feel lost and afraid. Mom and Dad felt the same way when we're your age. The important thing is that you overcome the fear and just try. Keep your big and beautiful dreams, the passion and determination to make them come true. Mom and Dad will always pray that your worries will remain small and that no matter where you are and no matter what you do, we will pray that you know somebody loves you. 

Mom and Dad will always be right here for you, our dearest child. We love you so much. We're honored and proud of you. Happy 21st birthday!

60 Medals in 6 Decades Goes to Engr. Tony Albar "A Cause For a Celebration."

These past days, I am thinking a lot what more can I gift you on your special day, and that made me count the 60 Medals of everything you have been through in life.

God has blessed me with a loving husband and with our wonderful wunderkind son. You are the gentle wind that combs away our sorrows, the rain that washes me with multitudes of happiness and the sunshine that chases away the darkness. Seeing you beside me with each waking moment, chatting the night away until we fall asleep and holding my hand when life gets though. It is hard to imagine what life would be like without you. Let us stay awesome together, hand-in-hand, and we will emerge victorious as the perfect two.

May you achieve your lifelong dreams and be filled with love and care all days of your life. To this very day, you never seize to amaze me, I may not be as gorgeous when you married me at 24. I may not be as beautiful when we first had our child at 30. But one thing will remain unchanging and only ever be growing, that is all the love I have for you.

Your imperfections make you the perfect partner I could ever want and need for in my journey. You made me see life with great possibilities. We learned so much from each other and looking forward to learning more. Let us ride the tides of life together. As long as we have each other, we will pass through any storm, stronger and wiser than before.

Happy birthday, my darling sweetheart. I am looking forward to conquering more journeys with you. God bless and keep you as always.

Engr. Tony B. Albar
A wonderful man with a big heart for everyone.

2017 Victorious Andreij on his 19th Birthday

Another year adds to your age dear Son, you are unique and sincere, and there is nothing anyone could possibly do to change that. May you always know your worth and how incredibly precious you are. Always remember that Dad and Mom knew you well. No one can put you down because you are a good man.

Now you are older, and what an amazing person you’ve become. You have your own personality, your own thoughts and opinions, and your own sense of humor. You have your own interests, your own talents, and your own way of doing things. I celebrate your individuality and uniqueness and am so honored to be part of your life.

Be true to yourself always. There is no one else like you, so allow your uniqueness to shine through. You never need to change who you are for someone else. You are magnificent exactly as you are.

Live your own dreams. Figure out what makes you happy and pursue it. Follow a path of your own choosing not mine, not your dad’s, or anyone else’s. Your fulfillment is what I want, and it will come from following your dreams and living a life that has meaning and purpose for you.

Don’t be afraid to take risks. Take big, bold risks. You can accomplish great things by taking risks. Living life too cautiously and keeping the status quo will leave you with regrets. Get outside of your comfort zone and watch as that comfort zone expands. The more risks you take, the easier it becomes.

Love and accept yourself unconditionally. You will always have yourself even when friends come and go, so make it your best relationship. The way you treat yourself will show others how to treat you, so treat yourself like you would your own best friend. Be kind, respectful, and loving to yourself no matter what.

Know that we love you and we will always be there for you. No matter what, we’ve got your back. You are our victorious son and always will be. Love you as always, Daddy and Mommy.

Andreij and his Birthday cake on his 19th Birthday.

We love you for always, Daddy and Mommy.

Before I Was A Mom

Before I was a Mom
I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about how late I got into bed. 
I brushed my hair and my teeth every day.

Before I was a Mom
I cleaned my house each day. 
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby. 
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous. 
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay. I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming a child so that doctors could do tests, or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put it down.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Maria Assunta Abad Dayo - Perreras

Today, April 7, 2017, is my Ate Suntz Birthday. She is 65 years old, she is very happy and proud to be 65 years old. Some say that turning 65 means you are a senior citizen, but there are some who need to listen, 65 is the age that you truly start to glisten. Age is nothing but a number as we tread along this path of life. There is no explanation of how time flies, the only thing I know is that the love I have for my sister never dies.

To my sister who is older than me, who help my parents and siblings to look and take care of me ever since I was a baby, I hope that you will see no one knows how old you really are, but I know that you are a bright and shining star. Keep your sense of style alive as today you are turning 65. I pray that all of God’s grace will come to you on your special day and all the days of your life.

I will always remember how much you love and value our family and me, especially in my younger years. I sweetly remember all the birthday treats you gift me for my birthday's and special achievements even up to this days. You are always present on my best days in life. We appreciate all your nice best self-gifts to us each time you had your celebration. Thank you for always making us part of your best achievement and special occasions, that is one of our family tradition that would always make our Parents proud of us. Your generosity becomes your best traits that you gift all of us ever since we were young, as the days go by, your generosity becomes our inspiration in life.

Thank you so much for helping our parents in sending us to good schools and much more, 14 members of the family is not so big because we have wonderful Ate's and Kuya's who took care of each other and all of us all these years.

A Wedding is a start of togetherness,
of walks in the rain, basking in the sunshine,
shared meals, caring for one another,
and sensing the love that a marriage carries.

(Pagsasariwa ng mga pangako sa pag-iisang-dibdib)
Minamahal kong Tony and Sol, naririto kayo sa harap ng Diyos upang pasalamatan siya
sa kanyang pagmamahal at katapatan sa inyo noong kanyang pag isahin ang inyong puso at buhay
25 taong na ang nakaraan. Sa inyong pag sasariwa ng mga pangako sa kasal,
hilingin ninyo sa Diyos na patuloy nya kayong lingapin at subaybayan.

Tony and Sol
When you first joined hands and hearts in marriage 25 years ago,
you did not know where life would take you.

You promised to love, honor and cherish one another through all things.
Life has surely brought you both wonderful blessings
and difficult challenges over the years.
But here you are today,
having fulfilled the vows to love, honor and cherish you
each made on your wedding day.

And with that God is smiling.

(Join your right hands)
As we celebrate here today,
and as you reflect back over all the years as husband and wife,
do you now wish to reaffirm the vows you took 25years ago?
(Tony & Sol - Yes, I Do)

Renewal of Vows
Tony, will you continue to have Sol as your wife
and continue to live in this happy and loving marriage?
Tony: Yes, I Do.

Do you reaffirm your love for Sol, and will you love,
honor and cherish her in sickness and in health,
for richer or poorer, for better for worse, and forsaking all others,
be faithful to her for as long as you both shall live?
Tony: Yes, I Do.

Sol, will you continue to have Tony as your husband and
continue to live in this happy and loving marriage?
Sol: Yes, I Do.

Do you reaffirm your love for Tony, and will you love,
honor and cherish him in sickness and in health,
for richer or poorer, for better for worse, and forsaking all others,
be faithful to him for as long as you both shall live?
Sol: Yes, I Do.

Since it is your intention to renew your vows
in the covenant of Holy Matrimony,
join your right hands, and declare your consent before God and his Church.

May the Lord in His goodness strengthen your consent and fill you both with His blessings.

"What God has joined together, let no man put asunder."

Tony and Sol,
On your wedding day, you exchanged rings as a symbol of the never-ending circle
that symbolizes the eternal quality of God, unending strength, and unending love.

May you always wear your rings as a reminder of your wedding vows to each other,
and your commitment to continue to live in unity, love, and happiness.

Rev. Fr. Reginald Malicdem blesses the wedding rings as symbols of deep faith and peace.
Tony and Sol exchange them with a promise of unconditional love and fidelity.

Sol, I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow, love, loyalty, faithfulness, and with all that I am
and all that I have, I honor you, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Tony, I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow, love, loyalty, faithfulness, and with all that I am
and all that I have, I honor you, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

May Tony and Sol, be blessed with the guidance, strength and
direction to make their relationship grow and blossom in the years ahead.

May their home be blessed with joy and happiness, prosperity and wellness,
and may they strive together to make their hopes and dreams come true.


A family is a word used in heaven and earth.
The foundation of the family must be Jesus and the two spouses.

To be valid, the Church teaches that marriage must be done
with love, freedom must be fertile and forever.

The Church has presented the virginal marriage between
 Mary and Joseph, as a model for all kinds of marriage.

The devotion for the Holy Spouses began in eternity, that is,
from the time that the Trinity decided to entrust the Son to two human spouses.

Blessing of our 25 years old Wedding Mementos with
Rev. Fr. Reginald Rivera Malicdem


Tony and Sol, today you have renewed the promises and vows
you made to each other on your wedding day.

You have symbolized the renewal of the marriage union by the joining of hands,
the taking of vows, and by exchanging of rings.

Rev. Fr. Reginald Malicdem's Blessings

It is with pleasure that I conclude the ceremony
of renewing the vows of marriage that joined you and
forever binds you as husband and wife.

Please celebrate this renewal of vows with a sign of affection.

Tony and Sol after 25 years

We have shared the joys, blessings, and the challenges,
of married life for 25 years.
And, today we reconfirm our commitment
to working together to make our marriage grow
and blossom in the years to come.

May this ceremony, renewing the vows we took
to become husband and wife on our wedding day,
remind us that despite the stresses inevitable in every life,
our love, respect, trust and understanding
of each other will continue to increase
our contentment and heighten our joy in living. Amen.

One of the great blessings of marriage is the joy and responsibility of raising a family.

We have truly been blessed to be the parents of our son, Andreij Hosea.

As we renew our vows of marriage today,
we also renew our commitment to be loving and caring parents to
Andreij, recognizing with gratefulness the happiness and fulfillment that
Andreij has brought to our marriage and family life.

Our sincerest appreciation to
Rev. Fr. Reginald Rivera Malicdem
(Rector of Manila Cathedral)

Our thanksgiving celebration
25th Silver Wedding Anniversary (Renewal of Vows)
Thank you so much, Rev. Fr. Reginald Rivera Malicdem

With the passage οf time we haven't changed a lot.

grandeur of our love and thump of our hearts beating for each other forever.
Tony & Sol

O God, the great Creator of this beautiful setting and all that is, the Lord of life and love,
we give you thanks for all of your goodness.

For the abundance of food, for the abundance of laughter and love.
We pray that this meal might be a time to nourish our bodies
and nourish strong relationships. Amen.
