Happy Father's Day to My Daddies!

Happy Father's Day to the greatest Daddies in the whole wide world!!!

My Dad is the quintessential military man. Always poker faced, as if you can't seem to read his mind. Guess that comes from his intelligence training. (Good thing the Tatler folks got him to smile for this photo!) We learned to live an almost Spartan existence thanks to him. He's a no frills kind of guy! He can live with a few pairs of shoes and a couple of clothes. Unfortunately I took after my Mom's side of the family! Teehee! Oh, but I learned to appreciate military inspired clothing thanks to my dad! My sibilings and I have worn camouflage shirts, cargo pants, dog tags, garrison belts and military jackets way before these became mainstream! But beneath that tough exterior is a caring, thoughtful and wise father who taught me that life may not be a bed of roses, but with determination and focus, you can easily achieve your dreams. He should know, from a small town boy who didn't even have enough money to buy clothes for his graduation, he "graduated" from his military career as Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines!

Daddy Henry on the other hand is a jovial fellow! He's always smiling and he finds humor in all things! If my hubby can be like a little boy sometimes, I think he got it from his dad! Heehee! One time we were at the grocery, and he wanted to buy chocolates. Of course, all the kids were like "Dad, no, that's bad!" But he was like, "Gusto ni Tintin yan! Diba Tintin?" Of course he got his way, and conveniently told Mom when we all got home that he wanted me to try it, when we all knew he wanted it more hehehe! Oh and he's very groovy! He likes dressing up like an Italian playboy! Tell him that Italian playboys wear this and that, and he'd try it on without hesitation! He loves nice shoes and suits, and its so amusing whenever I take his picture and he'd do his model pose! No kidding!

I love my two daddies! I feel lucky and blessed to have two different dads who have made my life one singular sensation!!!
