Mother Lily throws bday bash for Gov. Vilma Santos
Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto was all smiles during a surprise birthday lunch hosted by long-time friend and movie producer Lily Monteverde last Monday.
Santos-Recto, who turned 61 last November 3, thanked Monteverde and other friends in the media who attended the birthday lunch at the Valencia events place in Quezon City. The birthday event coincided with the governor’s press launch of “Ala Eh! Festival” to celebrate Batangas’ 433rd founding anniversary on December 1 to 8.
An Instagram video posted @Allan_Diones showed the Batangas governor blowing out the candle on her cake as Monteverde and German Moreno looked on.
Santos-Recto, meantime, appeared undecided about her political plans in 2016 despite rumors she could be a viable vice presidential candidate of the administration party.
“Maraming salamat po sa mga nagtitiwala na I can serve you. Again, I just don’t want to promise anything ‘pag hindi ko po kayang magawa. I’m praying for it at kung saan ako dalhin ng Panginoon. I’ll just do my best, whether I’ll run or I may not run,” Santos-Recto said during Monday’s press interview.
