Dionisia Pacquiao, the famed mother of world-boxing champion Manny Pacquiao, had recently made the headlines as she celebrated her 63rd birthday last night, May 15, 2012. Mommy D, as everyone called her, had a lavish celebration as family and close friends came to party with her at Pacman Stadium, General Santos City.
Dance sport is Mommy D’s favorite hobby and as expected, she hit the dance floor last night. Likewise, she showed off her singing prowess as she performed her favorite Imelda Papin hit, “Kung Liligaya Ka Sa Piling ng Iba.”
The sad thing is the family was not complete for the special occasion. Manny Pacquiao is in Los Angeles already training for his big fight with Timothy Bradley next month. Jinkee and the kids, meanwhile, are in Manila already preparing to join Manny abroad. However, Mommy D was greeted on the phone by her missing loved ones. She also received her birthday gift in advance. Yes, she already received her gift and that was a luxury van.
But what really stole the show and everyone’s attention was Mommy D’s Filipino flag-inspired gown. It had red, gold and red accent on top while the bottom was flowing white. There were praises for the gown, but most were negative comments. For them, it was the “worst dress” ever, like “it was made by a kinder pupil,” or Mommy D looked like “one scary Rainbow Brite character.”
How about you? What do you have to say?
